* Almost subverted, but not quite, in the CGI-animated ''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.)
* ''[[WesternAnimation/{{COPS}} C.O.P.S.]]'' featured Mace, who carried a laser bazooka, and uses it in the opening to slice a hole in a reinforced concrete walkway. Also featured Buttons [=McBoomBoom=] who, along with having THE GREATEST NAME IN ALL OF FICTION, kept a pair of [=BFGs=] ''in his chest.''
* Dot's gun in ''{{Reboot}}'''s season 2 finale "Web World Wars." It's bigger than she is.

* In ''Literature/{{Roadwork}}'', Dawes purchases a heavy-caliber pistol and revolver early in the story. The rifle (described by its seller as "a freaking anti-tank gun") has enough recoil to make his shoulder ache when he test-fires it, and both weapons do quite a number on the police cars that arrive on the morning of his eviction.

* In ''VideoGame/VectorVendetta'', one of the enemies is [[InvokedTrope called]] BFG. Indeed, while everything else shoots little bullets over the screen, this one uses a HitScan FrickinLaserBeam that bypasses your shield (if you have any). Of course the endgame boss also fires these.

** Plasma generators, only slightly below tacnukes in sheer destructive capacity. They also malfunction relatively often, and some of those malfunctions would cause the entire thing to explode; naturally, it being ''Paranoia'', you couldn't tell which malfunction was which, and neither could the rest of the party. And you had to strap the thing ''on'' to use it; taking it off suddenly (say, to get away from the now-it's-a-bomb strapped to your back) [[HilarityEnsues was not easy]]. Fixing it wasn't easy, either; you have to make one repair roll just to ''turn off the alarm'', another to stop it from exploding, and a third to actually get it to fire again (good luck with that). Oh, and as usual, you have to pay a fine if you let it get damaged.

* The [[http://world.guns.ru/shotgun/rus/ks-23-e.html KS-23]] is a Russian shotgun made from recycled 23mm AA gun barrels(equivalent to 4 gauge!). Nowadays they are issued to the OMON special police unit & available for local civilians.

** Fallout 4 shipped with your typical fire breathing mini guns and MIRV nukes, but the modding community, as always, wanted more. So they created a mod which allows any gun to use any mod, exponentially increasing your ability to build your own BFGs. One such example is a heat seeking launcher that fires 8 mini nukes per shot, arcing them directly into your enemies future gibs.

* In ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'', [[HuskyRusskie Zarya's]] weapon of choice is a particle cannon she tore off an armored car. She's most likely the only human in the setting capable of wielding it -- the thing is massive, and she's literally the world's strongest woman. The cannon has three firing modes -- a limited-range beam that resembles a massive LaserBlade, an energy mortar, and after charging her [[LimitBreak ultimate]], an orb which produces a team-fight-winning [[GravityMaster Graviton Surge]].

** The cannon can also project short-lived [[BeehiveBarrier energy barriers]] on Zarya and her teammates, which siphon energy into her gun when struck, potentially turning it into the single most powerful weapon in the game.
