* Often appears in ''Manga/CityHunter'' as the weapon of choice of Kaori and Umibozu (at least when they aren't firing [=RPG-7s=] or [=M60=] recoiless rifles), always from the hip. Kaori, being a tall but not particularly large woman, [[RealityEnsues can't hit anything due the recoil throwing off her aim]], while Umibozu can fire it one-handed (and even [[GunsAkimbo wield one in a hand and a M60 recoiless rifle in the other]]) [[JustifiedTrope because he's just that large and strong]].

* Classic British World War I comic book ''Charley's War'' had one as Smith 70's WeaponOfChoice with Young Albert assisting him in loading it. He refuses to let anyone else go near it as he considers it "too technical" for them. When Charley thinks his comrades have been killed thanks to [[TheNeidermeyer Lieutenant Snell]]'s incompetence, he uses it to take his frustration out on German troops.
* ''Film/TheLegendOfTarzan''. George uses one in the climax to take out a steamboat, noting that it's more effective than his [[RareGuns Walker Colts]].

* Essentially the {{BFG}} of the ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}}'' games, though its heavy weight prohibits sprinting, it can't be aimed, upgrading it costs a fortune, and it uses one of the rarest and most expensive ammo types in the game, even more than the 9x39mm. To make up for these shortcomings, it makes for InstantDeathRadius when you're firing, which extends to medium range when you go in a low crouch - mutants become minced meat. Strangely enough, when reloading, Scar and Degtyarev never flip the lid open; they simply link the new belt to the side of the weapon and rack the bolt.

* Appears as a running gag in ''[[Creator/RobertRankin They Came and Ate Us: Armageddon 2: The B-Movie]]''. Referred to by all and sundry (including the narration) as "one of those really amazing rotary machine-guns, like the one Blaine used in Predator", until...

The RPD is the world's first SAW, or Squad Automatic Weapon. It fires an intermediate caliber 7.62x39 round, the same as fired by the SKS, AK-47, AKM and many other such fine weapons. Developed near the end of World War 2 by Vasily Degtyaryov, and accepted into Soviet service in 1944. It saw limited use in the last days of WW2, though it has gone on to serve with distinction throughout the world.
