* Various [[HumongousMecha mobile suits]] from the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' metaseries use bayonets, sometimes solid and sometimes [[EnergyWeapons beam]], and occasionally removable to serve as an extra melee weapon. Some MS (such as the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]) can generate a beam blade from the barrel of their rifles, saving on space. A unique example is the Gundam [=GP01=] from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Gundam 0083]]'', which has a beam rifle with a "beam jitte", essentially just a small beam blade generator mounted beneath the barrel, allowing it to block enemy beam sabers without having to draw its own.

** Despite this, several melee units in the game can be more effective than musketeers, if they can get close without being battered down by volleys, that is. The Indian Gurkhas with their [[KukrisAreKool kukri]] swords can easily cut up a squad of professional musketeers... though that may be because they are [[NepaliWithNastyKnives Gurkhas]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'': the Brute Shot, Spiker, and Mauler.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', the reverse-end bayonet on the Brute Shot was the second best weapon at dismembering Flood forms and the second best melee weapon in multiplayer right behind the [[LaserBlade Energy Sword]]. Comes with the added bonus of not running out of charges.

* In the latter half of the nineteenth century, almost every army in Europe expected to carry an assault to the enemy with a bayonet charge. Even as tactics were modified (skirmish formations and fire-and-maneuver rushes) when breech-loading rifles were widely issued, it was almost universally accepted that only a bayonet charge could carry the soldiers onto the enemy's defenses. The Boer War, (to a lesser extent) the Russo-Japanese War, and World War I discredited these tactics when they proved less effective against defenders armed with smokeless powder weapons and barbed wire.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', ''any'' gun can have a blade attached, even rocket launchers and sniper rifles, and they all add 50% damage to your melee. The game doesn't feature a lengthened 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 do.

Heck, two guns (the Law and the Rapier) have the bayonet as their main gimmick.

* 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.]]
