** ZigZagged in that even though you never see any guns and cannons, they are still implied to have been invented in some form, as evident by structures such as Genesect's added photon cannon, Mimikyu's fake Pikachu tail which is made from what appears to be a wooden rifle stock, and Pokédex entries such as Chesnaught's mentioning vehicles like tanks existing (with the interesting tidbit that said Pokémon can flip one of 70 tonnes: the average modern battle-loaded tank weighs just a couple tons more,'' likely to prevent giant pangolins from defeating them''). Many attacks also have "cannon" and "gun" in their names, with "Bullet Seed" being called "Seed Machinegun" in the original Japanese.

At least one, Remoraid, actually resembles a pistol with its fins resembling the handle, trigger and hammer and markings that resemble the barrel. It also learns a number of attacks that involve firing projectiles or beams.

* No matter how many centuries pass between titles in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', nobody ever seems to figure out the logistics of firearms. While there is the excuse that various magical spells can do what guns and do and more, many cultures seen in the games are prejudiced against magicians (the Nords in Skyrim being the clearest example), so it's odd nobody's figured a way to replace them. Even the Dwemer, a race intelligent enough to build robots to guard their tombs, can only arm those robots with arrows. Interestingly enough, a book in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'' titled "[[http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Jokes Jokes]]" did mention the word "cannon".

Finally subverted as of The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, which features automatons armed with enormous hand-cannons.

** In ''SuikodenV'', Cathari's rifle looks like a modern sniper rifle. She also has the highest attack power in the game except for 'Deathblow' Georg Prime.

* ''{{Rift}}'' has [[TheMagicVersusTechnologyWar magic vs. technology]] (or rather, "pure" divine power vs. potentially-reality-breaking magitech) as the crux of the conflict between the two factions. Warriors and Rogues can use both bows and rifles, though due to the way stats are applied, warriors usually end up with guns and rogues with bows. The only real gameplay difference between them is the animation used, and if the sound effect is a "bang" or a "twang".

** 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 they would have been invented sooner or later, right? Well it seems that humans in this world never had a need to invent guns - 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 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.
