* ''FarCry'' featured the terminally huge OICW as a standard rifle, also letting the player mess around with mounted miniguns and carry an M249 SAW and giant repeating rocket launcher; in addition, the "Fat Boy" Trigens got themselves a rocket-launching ArmCannon out of this trope. The sequel kept the SAW and threw in a PK Machine Gun, [=AS50=] anti-material rifle, MGL-140 grenade launcher, LPO-50 flamethrower, Carl Gustav recoilless launcher and a Chinese Type 63 mortar.

* Almost subverted, but not quite, in the CGI-animated ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan'', when Coach gives Alex Mann a device called the BSU 10000. Alex thinks that this stands for something more sophisticated than the bazooka-like gun that it looks like at first glance, but Coach fires the gun at a pile of scrap metal (blowing it sky-high) and reveals that it ''really'' stands for "Blow Stuff Up". (Possibly a G-rated version of "Blow Shit Up", considering the show's audience.)

** Largely free of firearms, as the Disc is, the trope still shows up in the form of the massive 900 kg ballista siege weapon carried by Sergeant Detritus (an enormous troll made of rock) as a crossbow, "The Piecemaker." It is called this because the iron stone-piercing spear it used to fire was replaced with a bundle of arrows, which was presumably supposed to allow it to operated as an area weapon but unintentionally results in the arrows disintegrating into an expanding cone of burning wood fragments when fired, making it more like a (very inaccurate) shotgun that totally erases whatever it's fired at (or near) be it walls, doors, or presumably people. \\

* ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]''[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, has two that stand out. First is a [[GatlingGood gatling gun]] made out of ''Widow sniper rifles''. It only has three barrels, but it shreds virtually anything and has a special super-sized heatsink to keep up a high rate of fire. The other is essentially portable artillery useable by a character due to having a mechanical arm. Even then, he has to brace in a stationary position in order to fire it.

** The [[http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130528194755/nerf/images/5/5d/Centurion.png Centurion]], an almost 41" long blaster that fires Mega Darts, styled as an ''Anti Material Rifle.''
** The [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/nerf/images/f/fe/Mastodon.jpg Mastodon]], a revolving automatic blaster that fires Mega Dart, styled as a ''.50cal Machine Gun''.
** The [[http://nerf.wikia.com/wiki/Vulcan_EBF-25 Vulcan]] is a fully automatic tripod-mounted belt-fed blaster that looks like an HK MG4. It is, no joke, a ''Light LMG.'' Its smaller brother, the [[http://nerf.wikia.com/wiki/Stampede_ECS Stampede]], is an automatic magazine-fed blaster, closer to an M249 SAW.

* ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' thrives on this trope. Wolfwood wields the [[CreepyCoolCrosses Cross Punisher]], which actually contains a machine gun, a missile launcher, and (in the anime) between six and eight normal-sized guns. Knowing that Wolfwood's Punisher is slightly taller than him and that Wolfwood is about 1.85m, the weapon must weigh at the very least 100 kilos, which makes it a more than honourable BFG (and Wolfie one honourable badass). Millie Thompson carries a stungun that looks like a portable Gatling gun, can fire projectiles with enough force to knock over a truck, and fits neatly inside her overcoat without a bulge. Chapel the Evergreen (Wolfwood's mentor in the anime) carries a Punisher that can split down its length to form a pair of machine guns. Caine the Longshot, another Gung-Ho Gun in the anime, has a sniper rifle with a barrel that is several ''yards'' long. He shoots at Vash and Wolfwood from far outside of town until Vash uses his ImprobableAimingSkills to blow the rifle to pieces. And then, the most [=BFGing=] [=BFG=] of all [=BFGs=]: Vash and Knives' angel arms. When fired at low power, they blast away whole cities. When fired at full power, they ''carve giant craters in the moon''.

* Shiori Kubo, from ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'', appears in the doujin FightingGame ''[[VideoGame/{{Maribato}} Maribato!]]'' as a playable character and FinalBoss: Shiori's main weapon is a huge cross-shaped gun, almost as big as she is, that she carries over her shoulder, and can swing it as a club, or use it to fire missiles, and it has a hidden machine gun on its back to rack up a lot of hits.
