* Averted in the original ''[[SpyrotheDragon Spyro the Dragon]]'' games to varying degrees. Due to the massive SchizoTech of the series, you could see everything from muzzle loading muskets, to dinosaurs wielding revolvers, to mooks with modern machine guns, to futuristic lasers.

* 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 averted as of The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, which features automatons armed with enormous hand-cannons, though these are the creations of [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame the Dwemer]] and [[MadScientist Sotha Sil]].

* No In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, no matter how many centuries pass between titles in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', much time passes, nobody ever seems to figure out the logistics of firearms. While However, there is the excuse that various magical spells can do what guns are a few notable cases of close calls 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 one-offs:
** An in-game
book in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'' ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' titled "[[http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Jokes Jokes]]" did mention uses the word "cannon". Finally averted as of "cannon".
**
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, which features extinct [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwemer]] built SteamPunk HumongousMecha durable enough to function [[RagnarokProofing after 3,000 years of neglect]] and had the power to [[RealityWarper mess with the laws of the universe]], but never invented the musket. They did invent explosive devices (satchel charges, as seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'') but never seemed to put together the idea of using them to launch a projectile.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has cannons used in a one-off scenario by the East Empire Company against a band of pirates. However, you don't get to see anything more than the explosions they make and they aren't brought up again. (They would seem like something ''very'' useful to have around given all the ''dragon'' attacks...)
** As revealed in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'''s ''Morrowind'' expansion, the Tribunal deity Sotha Sil did build
automatons armed with enormous hand-cannons, though these but as an InexplicablyAwesome, reclusive PhysicalGod and master of SchizoTech (he was building massive computer systems, cybernetic lifeforms, and outright artificial intelligences at a time when most are stuck stabbing at each other with swords), he wasn't too keen on sharing with the creations rest of [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame the Dwemer]] world... ''Online'' is a prequel and [[MadScientist Sotha Sil]].this invention is apparently lost by the time of the main series.

** 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.

* ''{{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".
