* In ''Film/YoungGuns II'', UsefulNotes/BillyTheKid kills a sheriff with a shotgun filled with eighteen dimes (nine in each barrel) used as slugs. "Best dollar-eighty I ever spent!" This particular event is inspired by something the real Billy the Kid did once when cornered without normal ammo.

* ''VideoGame/{{Worms}}'' has [[BaaBomb sheep]] and homing pigeons being fired from bazookas, the Priceless Ming Vase, the Banana Bomb, the HolyHandGrenade, and the Old Lady (among the most powerful non-super weapons in the game) as well as the Super Sheep, which is a flying sheep (with a red cape!) which you guide into its target. The ''super'' weapons include the "Concrete Donkey", the Super Banana Bomb, and the Flaming Sheep Strike. Let's just put it this way: The more unlikely the weapon, the more powerful it's probably going to be.
** ''Worms Forts: Under Siege'' has, among other things, a minigun that fires hamsters, a trebuchet that launches a moose and a mortar that fires a bishop.

* ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} 3: Resurrection of Evil'' has a weapon like the gravity gun from ''Half-Life 2'', commonly called the Grabber. The main difference is that the Grabber in ''Doom'' has a limit to how long it can hold something, and it can pick up organic matter non-lethally.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' for UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} has...[[ToiletHumor yellow snowballs]]. The most powerful weapon is a cow launcher. There are grenades that look like Terence and Philip dolls; they fart to explode. The game's equivalent to a sniper rifle is a chicken that shoots eggs. You even aim it through a little notch in its tail feathers!

* Langrage. It is basically charging a muzzle-loaded cannon with iron and steel junk, pieces of chain, pebbles and anything shootable and shooting it against a charging enemy. The range would be less than that of a regular cannoball, but it could make horrendous damage at close range. Usually langrage was the last measure against an oncoming enemy, and if it did fail to stop the enemy, the gunners would spike the cannons and flee.

** Before WWII, the US fielded battleships fitted with special cannons to launch seaplanes as spotter aircraft. (The aircraft rode a sort of sled puched by the explosive charge, so it isn't quite as cool as it might have sounded there.)

* Youtube channel [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNEZ7cqaZzYLeyWfTkelkEA Taofledermaus]] has a series of videos called "You make it, we shoot it", where they receive all sorts of bizarre shotgun slugs from viewers and attempt to shoot them. They've attempted some rather exotic rounds, like the taffy slugs, brass slugs made from doorknobs, "expanding" saboted slugs made from spring-loaded door hinges, pykrete slugs (pykrete being ''ice'' and wood fibres mixed into a durable composite), gallium slugs, jelly slugs made from reconstituted gummy bears, glass slugs, and a wax-and-sand 'quartz' slug.
* Another Youtube channel, [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBvc7pmUp9wiZIFOXEp1sCg Demolition Ranch]], brings us shotguns loaded with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6N3v2UvtxQ drill bits]]. Given that the drill bits are too long to fit in the shells, each shell is loaded directly into the barrel (this requires removing the barrel to load the shell and reattaching it to the shotgun).

* ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'': Amongst the weapons included in the game we have guns that will [[BalefulPolymorph turn any enemy into various farmyard animals]], a land shark gun, a gun that fires heat-seeking servings of vindaloo curry, a mine that spits out bees, and the suck cannon, a weapon which sucks up your enemies and fires them as ammo. There is also a gun that shoots black holes, and grenades that turn into little robots that themselves have guns. Finally, we have the gun that fires tornadoes, complete with lightning storms, wrist weapons that launched sentient and powerful blobs of slime, and capping it all off with a bomb that makes any enemy - from wandering creatures to NPC's to bosses - start dancing to disco music, each one having a distinct dance.
