* The [[RareGuns OICW]] from ''EternalDarkness'' is the best gun when it comes to tearing apart EldritchAbomination monsters. Considering that your character in that level has a miniscule ManaMeter, you need it. An earlier level has the Elephant Gun, which can be fired one barrel at a time or both at once. Firing from the hip, or before you take enough time to carefully brace yourself, will result in your character being knocked on his ass by the recoil.

The BFG is a [[FreudWasRight visual metaphor]] for power, and therefore has a lot of uses as a trope. If TheHero, particularly the ActionHero, gets hold of one, it's likely because the writers intend to [[UpToEleven escalate the action]], most likely with a StormingTheCastle scene where he takes on a whole army.

* Ranma's preferred ranged weapon in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11577216/1/A-Horse-For-the-Force A Horse for the Force]]'' is a heavy blaster cannon that was originally mounted on a speeder (before he ripped it off).

** The "normal" weapons also have three [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus]] guns: The M-98 Widow Anti-Materiel Rifle. An anti-vehicle SniperRifle, designed to never be used without being braced or for use by heavily reinforced synthetics. Shepard in the second game can use it on the move (thanks to cybernetic enhancements) and primarily [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill against infantry.]] Also worth mentioning is the [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter M-300 Claymore]], an insanely high-powered shotgun designed for Krogan use. The designation is arranged to look like BOOM. Finally, there's the M-76 Revenant Light Machine Gun, an assault rifle that can rip apart pretty much anything. With accuracy upgrades, it becomes ludicrously powerful - stick any of the ammo upgrades on it and it becomes freakishly good. And the [[LargeAndInCharge Shadow]] [[TheChessmaster Broker]] wields it ''[[BadAss one handed.]]''

** The ''[[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Animated]]'' Megatron also has a fusion cannon which is almost identical (if not a little bit bigger!) than the original and even ''uses the same sound effect'' (Although slightly modified to sound like a weapon firing). Most impressively, he uses it while DualWielding. Is it any wonder that this guy is considered to be a BadAss?

* ''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''.

* In ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' John Harrison wields a huge Gatling phaser ''in one hand'' against the Klingons, [[GunsAkimbo with a normal-sized phaser rifle in the other]]. Not only does he take out two birds of prey with it, [[{{Badass}} he also uses it as a melee weapon]]. Justified: [[spoiler:He's really Khan Noonien Singh, a [[BioAugmentation genetically enhanced human]] with a greatly upgraded physique and hand-eye coordination.]]
