* Pictured atop this page is Samus Aran from the ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' series. Her [[PoweredArmor Power Suit]] has one of these, which functions as a SwissArmyWeapon, being able to fire different kinds of beams (and Missiles) that are typically unlocked over the course of a game. While the Power Suit may not have a right hand, Samus herself does, which can be seen in official art, whenever she ends up in the [[LatexSpaceSuit Zero Suit]], and [[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130322014337/metroid/images/0/0d/X_ray.png in-game with the X-Ray visor]] in the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy''.

It might look like an Arm Cannon of the first kind, but the cannon is simply part of her power suit and not a replacement of her actual hand ([[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130322014337/metroid/images/0/0d/X_ray.png which can be seen with the X-Ray visor]] in the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy'').

* Firebats from StarCraft have twin, wrist-mounted flamethrowers. This continues on in the ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' unit, the Marauder, who has twin grenade launchers for arms. It's a giant MiniMecha / PoweredArmor suit, though, so he can still take it off. The new Firebat has the same design as well.

* In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'', LeonardoDaVinci builds a pistol modification into Ezio's hidden blade gauntlet quite late into the game. Maybe you would expect that it allows for some stealth, until the sound it makes almost makes you think that they're making a fireworks missile explode right next to your ear. It does OneHitKill everyone, though, even the [[HeavilyArmoredMook Brutes]].

** The [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited animated version]] actually ''cut his own arm off'' when chained up, [[PapaWolf in order to save his infant son]]. He gets the harpoon replacement and sticks with it throughout the series. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Can we say]] {{Badass}}?

* The ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' villain Hordak, also the BigBad from ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower'', could transform at will his arm into a cannon - a prominent use of his VoluntaryShapeshifting skillset; he could also turn his whole body into a rocket. The 1980s comics had the exact style of this vary wildly DependingOnTheWriter - sometimes the cannon was wider, sometimes narrower; generally it was his whole arm to the shoulder that transformed, while with certain illustrators it was just his forearm. Whatever form it took, it always looked awesomely {{Badass}} - Skeletor never pulled off any trick like that...
