* [[BigBad Ma-Ma]] from ''Film/{{Dredd}}'' tries to take out Dredd and Anderson using a [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill trio of .50 calibre]] [[GatlingGood gatling guns]]. They rip through most of the level Dredd is on, killing almost everybody, but he manages to escape by blasting out a damaged exterior wall with a [[StuffBlowingUp Hi-Ex round]]. Needless to say, given that this is [[ImplacableMan Judge Dredd]] we're talking about, all this succeeds in doing is pissing him off.

* In ''Anime/NightWizard'', EmotionlessGirl Akari usually wields a {{BFG}}, but during one of the final episodes, she briefly upgrades to a RIDICULOUSLY oversized ANTI-FLEET weapon. It's so big, she needs another wizard to handle the reloading. Rather than firing from the hip as is her general style, she finds it necessary to carry it on her shoulder... and it's the size of an interstate bus.



** IIn the same comic, CostumedNonSuperHero Rocketman also has one, but his isn't ''quite'' that big.

** Schlock loses his {{BFG}}, and is offered a new model which is much more powerful and doesn't need to warm up. On the downside, it is smaller, and doesn't make an ominous hum, so Schlock manages to find another of the old model. To be fair, Schlock uses both the size and the ominous hum as much for intimidation as he uses the gun for blasting things. Although he does like blasting things.

** Anti-materiel rifles are also considered BFGs. Due to international law, usage against human targets is strictly prohibited. It's come full circle when Serbu, a firearms company, name their heavy sniper the BFG.

See also: BeamSpam, SplashDamage, MacrossMissileMassacre, SphereOfDestruction, WaveMotionGun, LightningGun, FreezeRay, DeathRay, DisintegratorRay, FrickinLaserBeams and RecursiveAmmo. A BFG will almost certainly yield StuffBlowingUp, and will likely [[MoreDakka possess additional dakka]]. A SwissArmyGun tends to also be a BFG, as does a BiggerStick. Might cause the user to be TriggerHappy. When in the possession of a little girl it probably over laps with SmallGirlBigGun. If its grips are placed along the top of the barrel and at the back of the weapon, you have a ChainsawGripBFG.

* The unofficial ''ReBoot'' Episode Zero (a compilation of every cutscene from the PlayStation videogame) plays this a bit more straight. After Hexadecimal reveals that [[spoiler:Dot is trapped inside one of her mirrors]], Bob [[BerserkButton goes berserk]]. He brutally kicks Megabyte's [[UnusualEuphemism ascii]], then stares right at the mirror-slash-vidwindow above the Tor looking into Hex's lair. His next line, with progressive camera zoon-in on each letter: "Glitch: '''''B.F.G.!'''''". His already big gun turns into the poster child of MoreDakka, then he points it straight up at the mirror, says his CatchPhrase ("StayFrosty."), and blasts the crap out of it. (Watch the epic scene [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_7NgIobE2I here]], starting at 3:14.) Also lampshaded by Bob, his first request for glitch to form a BFG was actually a big, freaking guitar.

* ''GeneratorRex'': one of Rex's forms produces a ridiculously large gun, known as the Slam Cannon. It's about three times as large as its teenage wielder, and on one occasion used ''bowling balls'' for bullets - and they were small compared to its usual mass-of-rubble rounds.

* The ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'' series, where nearly every gun (and there are a lot of them) is at ''least'' half the size of the protagonist. As they [[EvolvingAttack upgrade]], they soon match the name on the firepower scale, too. This didn't stop them from making a BFG so FB, that it actually warranted a ''new acronym'': the '''R'''ip '''Y'''ou a '''N'''ew '''O'''ne. What's more, the RYNO was only the ''first in a series of four guns'' ([[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank2002 RYNO]], [[RatchetAndClankGoingCommando RYNO II]], [[RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal RYN3O]] / [[EvolvingAttack RYNOCERATOR]], and [[RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction RYNO IV/RYNO 4-EVER]]). Mind you, the last one never went past the blueprint stage because it was deemed too powerful. ''This coming from a company that created a portable black hole launcher and [[ColonyDrop Colony Dropping]] handguns''.

** The Harbinger/Supernova from ''RatchetDeadlocked''. Apparently Dreadzone, the evil game show the eponymous hero gets kidnapped by, felt that the '''RYNO''' guns were ''too sissy'', and design a gun that calls ''FrickinLaserBeams'' down from space like it's the damn wrath of god, and can be upgraded ''' ''[[UpToEleven 99 TIMES.]]'' '''
** And you have yet to see the [[RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime RYNO V]], best described as ''two interlocked gigantic gatling guns along with a huge ass missile launcher in the middle''. The 1812 Overture plays whenever it's fired.
