** The [=GM=] Cannon II and Xamel from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory''. With the Xamel, the weapon's [[{{BFG}} side]] actually makes it easy to mistake it for a ShoulderCannon.

* In 1944 - 45, the German Army was working on what would have been a man-portable anti-aircraft weapon with limited surface-to-air capacity. It took the form of a six-barrelled rocket launcher looking not unlike a Gatling gun but capable of firing six rockets, either singly or in a volley. To make it easier for the operator, it was envisioned that this would be mounted in a modified harness slung over the back, and could be hoisted to the shoulder when it was necessary to fire it. This was another of those weapons that were timed out by the end of the war in 1945; it would have operated on the recoiless rifle principle with backblast angled away from the operator. Not much evidence exists as to whether or not it would have worked.

** Blastoise from [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Gen I]] is a giant turtle with two cannons in its shell! Its SuperMode introduced in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' changes it to one large cannon while giving it two [[ArmCannon arm-mounted cannons]].

* VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'': Ishikowa Goemon has an actual cannon strapped to his back that he uses in various combo attacks as well as his Musou attack. In the first game he could also use it to blast open certain walls on some levels, revealing hidden loot or shortcuts.
* "VideoGame/{{Destiny}}" has Valus Tlu'urn, a Cabal commander who has a giant artillery cannon as his weapon of choice. [[note]]This is due to the Cabal specialising in wars of attrition. Tlu'urn's cannon has recharging arc cells as noted in his [[AllThereintheManual Grimore]] card which means that he is able to fire it indefinitely.[[/note]]
