** Some Minecraft greifing clients not only restore the fully automatic nature of the bow, but can make it fire ''even faster''.

* Interestingly, the official lightgun attachment for the Nintendo Wii, known as the Wii Zapper, comes with ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link's Crossbow Training]]''. Link's Crossbow never needs to be reloaded, and can be powered up with 100 bolts of automatic rapid-fire. The idea was later expanded upon with Linkle's dual crossbows in ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors Legends'', which combines this trope with some mild GunKata.

* ''VideoGame/WarhammerTheEndTimesVermintide'': Victor Saltzpyre can acquire a Repeater Crossbow in Drachenfels, which has a burst-fire mode that shoots out three bolts in rapid succession.

* In ''Videogame/EndlessLegend'', the comparatively high-tech Vaulters use magazine-fed crossbows as their standard infantry weapon. Amusingly, the Vaulters flee the planet Auriga [[SchizoTech on a spaceship before they even invent firearms]]. When they reappear in ''Videogame/EndlessSpace'', they upgrade to ballistics and directed energy weapons.

** ''TabletopGame/DiscworldRoleplayingGame'' also has a repeating crossbow that is unreliable but still popular in the Brown Islands, mostly for the [[DramaticGunCock impressive noise it makes when a bolt is loaded]].

* Emperor Zemeckis of Esgares Empire from ''VideoGame/{{Brigandine}}'' wields a big crossbow called 'Tempest Bow', where he can call out lightning to enhance its bolts ForMassiveDamage. In the vanilla game, he can shoot while moving, but in ''Grand Edition'', [[{{Nerf}} he cannot move and shoot.]]

** Those make a showing in DavidDrake's ''Ranks of Bronze'', used by the defenders during a siege since they had the height advantage on their walls.

** Historic repeating crossbows all had the same problem, they lacked the range and penetrating power of their slower firing brethren. Great for volume of fire, less then spectacular when it comes to precision marksmanship, long range target shooting, and armor penetration. Which is why the bolts were often [[PoisonedWeapon poisoned]].
*** But they were still powerful enough for a corpse, dating from the Roman siege of a Celtic fort in England, to have a crossbow bolt protruding through his spine. Which had penetrated through his stomach.

* Interestingly, the official lightgun attachment for the Nintendo Wii, known as the Wii Zapper, comes with ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link's Crossbow Training]]''. It remains to be seen whether the next Zelda game will feature one of these. Link's Crossbow never needs to be reloaded, and can be powered up with 100 bolts of automatic rapid-fire.
