* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Lunia}}'', an Action-Arcade MMORPG owned by Ijji; Ryan Hunt, a soon-to-be-released playable character, uses guns. He has a rifle and a gatling gun attatched to his hand, and seems to based off of another of Ijji's games, ''GunZ: The Duel''. Seeing as cannons are wide-spread in Lunia, it's a surprise that the only guns that appear are owned by Ryan and some of the pirate enemies.

*** The same game's ''Trespasser'' expansion reveals that Qunari black powder is not actually gunpowder, It's a much more complicated and less stable alchemical concoction. The expansion also shows that the human kingdoms do have gunpowder, enough to make fireworks anyways.

Making it involves harvesting caustic chemicals from captive dragons. The expansion also shows that the human kingdoms do ''do'' have gunpowder, enough to make fireworks anyways.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/TotalWarShogun2''. While it isn't easy, it is very possible to get gun using troops in the standard game. You can let in European traders, but you risk Christianity spreading throughout your lands, either making your population rebellious if you keep to Shinto Buddism, or other clans very angry if you accept the Western religion. You can also research them, but they are very far down the line on the tech tree.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' have both party members (one per game, usually) and enemies using guns, but as the exception rather than the rule, and they [[GunsAreWorthless do no more damage than melee weapons]]. Although in some games, they are able to ignore armour.

** The franchise uses the Fireball example. While the technology in the Pokémon world is sometimes more advanced than ours, usually it's on par with that of the real world. However, you will notice that, unless it's the Anime canon, there are no guns. You'd think gunpowder would have been invented sooner or later, right? Well it seems that humans in this world never had a need to invent gunpowder or dynamite - you can capture monsters that can do it for you, so it makes a bit of sense that people would turn to technology to control these creatures rather than invent stuff to do it themselves. [[spoiler:Ghetsis]], the BigBad of VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite, is unfortunately aware of this.

* Averted with ''VideoGame/GrimDawn''. Guns are not only present, they're also some of the deadliest weapons in the game: bypassing armor, rapid firing, BottomlessMagazines.

* ''{{VideoGame/Dofus}}'' started out relatively gun-free (for the most part; some of the pirate enemies used flintlock pistols), but many steampunk and clockpunk enemies wielding guns and bombs (and the occasional ''laser gun'') have been added to the game as the years have gone by. Moreover, back in 2008, they added an equippable gun called a Tormentator that transforms the player into an elemental knight wielding the gun plus a sword, and in 2010, they added a class called Rogue that uses guns and bombs for its "spells".
