* Mumei's [[GunsAkimbo dual]] [[SawedOffShotgun sawn-off shotguns]] in ''Anime/KabaneriOfTheIronFortress'' have folding bayonets, although [[OurZombiesAreDifferent the iron skin of the Kabane]] means it is mostly only effective at [[OffWithHisHead taking off their heads.]] However, once she gets the blades [[MidSeasonUpgrade coated]] [[[[BodyToJewel in refined Kabane skin]] they become strong enough to [[AbsurdlySharpBlade break even the Kabane's iron-clad hearts.]]

** In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', ''any'' gun can have a blade attached, even rocket launchers! In some cases it doesn't give a bonus, but it always changes the animation -- now you can have a sniper rifle with a bayonet and actually use it for melee! And without lengthened animations to boot!
* ''VideoGame/{{Incubation}}'' provided bayonets on Advanced Combat Guns and Standard Assault Rifles, the second and third weapons the player received. Since the blade's damage was great (easily enough to decimate lesser aliens) and ammo was very limited, the fairly weak SAR remained a mainstay through much of the game.
** The expansion pack ''finally'' introduced another bayoneted weapon, the Light Plasma Gun... which had good damage and unlimited ammo ''anyway'', making it pointless.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', ''any'' gun can have a blade attached, even rocket launchers! In some cases it launchers and sniper rifles, and they all add 50% damage to your melee. The game doesn't give feature a bonus, but it always changes the animation -- now you can have a sniper rifle with a bayonet and actually use it for melee! And without lengthened animations melee animation like its predecessor either, so if you wanna go happy stabbity-stab with a knifed pistol or shotgun or bazooka, or get caught with your bladed sniper out by a PersonalSpaceInvader, you know what to boot!

* Famously used in UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar by the 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry under Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. During the battle of {{Gettysburg}}, Chamberlain's troops were suffering heavy casualties and running out of ammo, and he knew they would be unable to defend their vital position on Little Round Top against the approaching Confederate army. So, in a complete {{Badass}} move, he ordered a bayonet charge, which even at the time was considered an old-school textbook maneuver, but which Chamberlain realized could be used as a simultaneous frontal attack and flanking maneuver. The Confederates were utterly cowed and the 20th Maine [[MomentOfAwesome won the day]]. Chamberlain himself received a Medal of Honor for it.

* Bayonets are optional attachments for a wide range of weapons in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}''. You can attach them to simple pipe rifles, shotguns, sniper rifles, and even rocket launchers and miniguns!

** In the case of the minigun, the bayonet attachment is less like a knife and more like massive blades chained to the barrels. The modification even has a different name: the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Shredder]].

* ''HighSchoolOfTheDead'': Rei carries a rifle with a knife bayonet attached, and uses that as her primary weapon. During the mall arc, Kouta jury-rigs a spike bayonet for Takashi's shotgun from some bicycle parts, but warns him that it will probably break easily. And sure enough, ItOnlyWorksOnce.

** ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (3.5e) would allow this, and indeed, gave the player two choices of bayonet to use: knife or sword. This turned their crossbow into the statistical equivalent of a shortspear or spear, respectively, at the cost of -4 to their attack rolls for lack of weapon proficiency. [[SwissArmyWeapon Oh, and you can still fire the crossbow without fouling either the bolt or the bayonet.]]

* ''MutantChronicles'' features both the "underslung chainsaw"- and knife-on-a-gun variants. The Dark Legion tend not to use them, but their weapons come [[SpikesOfVillainy pre-spikified]], so that's okay.

* In ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'' the Secutors from the Order of Light have ''submachine gun'' bayonets.



* ''{{VideoGame/Unturned}}'' uses a Gun Accessory system and bayonets are a rare option for tactical accessories. While its short-ranged and only moderately powerful, a bayonet can quickly protect you in an emergency without needing to switch weapons.

** It's not just for show. The Army are still very keen on their bayonets on the battlefield. There are multiple reports of firefights in Afghanistan ending when some likely lads from a Scottish battalion fix bayonets and charge. Seems the Taliban [[DadsArmy don't like it up 'em]] either.[[note]] In earlier Afghan wars, British bayonets were a deciding factor in hand-to-hand engagements. Afghans have long memories.[[/note]]
