Added DiffLines:

* ''{{VideoGame/Foxhole}}'' added bayonets in 0.2, which can be fixed to carbines or rifles. They deal a OneHitKill attack in melee range and you can sprint while extending your bayonet as a DashAttack.

** This proud tradition is held in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIIILiberation'' and ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag''; both Aveline de Grandpre and Edward Kenway (as well as Adéwale, in ''Freedom Cry'',) are perfectly capable of picking up an unattended musket (or [[BallisticDiscount making a musket unattended]], or relieving a still-living enemy of their musket using their bare hands,) and using the bayonet as a vicious melee weapon.

* The French Army uses bayonets for both ceremonial and combat purpose, which served them will during the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Vrbanja_Bridge battle of Vrbanja Bridge]] during the [[UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars Bosnian war]] where a bayonet charge allowed French UN peacekeepers to win the battle against the Serbs. "Baïonnette au canon" [[note]]"Bayonet to cannon[[/note]] indeed.

* ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDuty World At War]]'': You could get a bayonet attachment for the bolt-action rifles, the M1 Garand, the M1897 shotgun, and the Type 99. It gave you a much longer melee range, at the expense of a longer melee recovery time.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonorPacificAssault'' has permanent bayonet attachments for the Arisaka Type 38, Type 96 Light Machine Gun and M1 Garand Rifle. Japanese soldiers equipped with the first two will try to attack you with the bayonets.

* In the UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar and UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, the [[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun army and navy]] of ImperialJapan not only followed the standard practice of having a bayonet for every rifle, they were also one of the last hold-outs in the use of sword bayonets instead of switching to the knife type (perhaps because their involvement in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI didn't include trench warfare). Moreover, they took the unusual but not unique step of putting bayonets on their submachine guns, and the ''entirely'' unique step of putting bayonets on ''light machine guns''. Needless to say, this could hardly be less practical (an LMG is way too heavy and bulky to effectively thrust like a spear), but it reflected the general obsession with blades and melee combat that resulted from the Japanese ultra-nationalists' attempt to revive samurai culture.

* Seen occasionally in ''{{Sharpe}}''. The elite Rifles use longer bayonets for their weapons, which [[InsistentTerminology must be referred]] to when deployed as "fix swords!" rather than "fix bayonets!" as for the musket-wielding regulars[[note]]The Baker rifle was shorter than the standard-issue British muskets of the time. Rifle units were issued longer sword bayonets so that the length of their weapons matched that of regular infantry muskets so that the two different units could work together in formations[[/note]].

* ''Series/BandofBrothers'' features a badass bayonet charge across a field in Holland. Bull Randleman also duels a German soldier with his bayonet (in reality he was involved in two bayonet duels during the war).

* 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.

** The Russian Field Marshal [[{{Badass}} Alexander]] [[AFatherToHisMen Suvorov]] said, to paraphrase, that the bullet is a fool and the bayonet is wise. He never lost a single battle in his entire military career. It worked well during Suvorov's time, when many armies were primarily composed of infantry drilled to march in formation and fire massed volleys, and little else. When the Napoleonic Wars came about however, this attitude had to be shaken off, as it was virtually suicidal in the face of Napoleon's comprehensively-trained soldiers and combined arms tactics.
