* The PC RPG ''{{Albion}}'' tells the story of an Earth astronaut who crash lands on an alien planet that's part alien jungle and part fantasy land. The local civilization hasn't developed guns, but later in the game repeating Automatic Crossbows (referred to as bolt guns) become available as weapons.

He also has the strength to insert them one-handed into their reloading mechanism, cocking all eight strings apiece by sheer arm strength.

* ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' has the Attica, a Tenno made crossbow that fires high-damage bolts at decent rate. A later patch doubles its firing rate and allows it to equip the [[StuffBlowingUp Thunderbolt mod]], essentially turning it into a fast-firing automatic rocket launcher.

A later update introduced the Zhuge, which is more of a crit-based weapon.

to:

* In D20 rpg ''Dark Legacies'', there are standard automatic crossbows out of Dungeons and Dragons, but also there are even more advanced assault crossbows, which are automatic crossbows with an ammo belt to create a constant rate of fire. And a certain class can further mount these assault crossbows on a steam-powered armour and then improve the crossbow with things such as flywheels, high-tension strings and etc. Note that in most fantasy worlds, these assault crossbows would be the highest level of technology. But in ''Dark Legacies'', it's set in our world in the post-apocalypse far future, so the assault crossbows and other tech is a big step down.

* In ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' the apocalypse seems to have wiped out all the bullets but few of the guns, so the guns have naturally been retooled to shoot pointed sticks.

* Creator/DavidGemmell's anti-heroic assassin Waylander the Slayer used a weapon normally referred to as a "double crossbow" -- effectively two small crossbows stuck one on top of the other, allowing two shots without reloading. The second shot often takes people by surprise, which is handy because he's a mediocre swordsman.

* A character in ''LightNovel/VampireHunterD: Bloodlust'' fires quarrels at a rate of roughly seven billion per second out of a ''hand-loaded'' crossbow. No explanation is offered as to how, although it looks like he's pulling a [[Franchise/DiscWorld Detritus]]-loading a bundle of them and letting them [[RainOfArrows diffuse mid-flight]].

* In the original ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'' movie, the land where the Tarna segment was set did have guns. But automatic bolt-shooters were in exclusive use by those mounted on giant featherless birds. [[JustifiedTrope Well, giant featherless birds that also didn't exist in the medieval age]].
