A BFG is a piece of personal artillery used by an individual and chiefly defined by its, well, [[BiggerIsBetter its incredible]] [[ShapedLikeItself bigness]]. BFG (in this definition) stands for Big Fucking Gun.

* VideoGame/{{Subvein}} has several [=BFGs=] for every category of gun, for example, a BFG Machinegun is a Heavy Minigun.

* Nearly every templar from ''VideoGame/TemplarBattleforce'' carries a BFG; understandable as they are [[SpaceMarine space marine]] [[SuperSoldier super soldiers]] fighting a [[BugWar bug war]]. However, the Neptune [[PoweredArmor mech]] has an especially big [=BFG=] as their defining class feature.
**The only templar who cannot carry a BFG is [[CombatMedic the paladin]], who is restricted to a [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe sword and shield]]. TheCaptain and TheBerserker both get to choose whether or not to carry a BFG (the former can elect a sword and shield, the latter can select a [[AnAxetoGrind two-handed battle axe]]). Every other templar carries one.
**As one may be able to tell from the sheer number of weapon links in this example, the Templars are firm believers that KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter.

* The Valkyrie Cannon from ''VideoGame/{{Sundered}}'' is an energy weapon bigger than the player character. Firing it generates so much recoil that Eshe [[BlownAcrossTheRoom gets thrown a good 20-30 feet backward with every shot]], making it extremely useful for escaping from [[ZergRush hordes]] as well as clearing said hordes out. For some reason, its energy bullets can also be used to open certain locked doors in the Valkyrie Encampment.

* At the start of WW2, most of the principal combatants were issued with anti-tank rifles. Given armour thicknesses in tanks of the era, it was not unreasonable to issue very large single-shot or limited magazine rifles, using armour-piercing bullets that could penetrate up to an inch (25mm) of tank armour. But the weapons themselves were large cumbersome monsters which were generally hated by men detailed to use them, with good reason. Britain's Boyes Anti-Tank rifle was five feet two inches long, weighed thirty-five pounds, and fired a massive 0.55" round. A man tasked with carrying a weapon four times the weight of the standard SMLE rifle and twice as long then had to brace against the massive recoil energy generated on firing. The Soviet PTRS-41 was even larger: eighty-three inches long and 46 pounds, but larger still was the Finnish Lahti L-39 20mm rifle (nicknamed the Elephant Gun), capable of defeating almost all Soviet armor during the Winter War and being quite annoying against later Soviet tanks during the Continuation War.[[note]] As an added degree of skill to use this weapon efficiently, the white, icy conditions of Finland in the winter required the operators to forgo such luxuries as optical sights and use simple iron sights to target enemy vehicles or even enemy snipers.[[/note]] Germany's version was unique. The bullet incorporated a small charge of tear gas: the thinking was that when the bullet penetrated the tank, the gas would add an extra degree of unpleasantness to the recipients in an enclosed space. [[note]] The gas-carrying round was discontinued as ineffective; the Germans also realised they could be accused of first use of chemical weapons, and provoke retaliation in kind.[[/note]]. Most anti-tank rifles were phased out by 1943; the Russians, however, continued to use theirs as "shock and awe" sniper weapons. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Against human targets]].

* Tons of examples from ''VideoGame/{{Planetside}}'':
** The [[LaResistance New]] [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Conglomerate]] Jackhammer given to their heavy assault troops is an enormous ''triple-barrelled'' shotgun with a secondary mode that fires all three barrels at once. Catch one of those up close and they'll be scraping you off the wall with a spatula.
** Also with the New Conglomerate is the [[TankGoodness Vanguard's]] 150mm Titan main gun. The damage it inflicts on Terran Prowlers and Vanu Magriders is considerable, so of course it can one-shot light vehicles and instagib infantry and [[PoweredArmor MAXs]].
** Not to be left out, the Terran Republic [[GatlingGood Mini Chain Gun]] [[MoreDakka spits a copious amount of lead at an alarming rate]] and the Vanu Sovereignty's [[PlasmaCannon Lasher]] is a dead-ringer for the [=BFG=] from VideoGame/QuakeIIIArena.
