* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Maysilee Donner, one of District 12's female tributes in the Fiftieth Games (which featured twice the usual number of tributes) found a blow gun and darts in her pack. Taking advantage of the fact that everything in the arena that year (with the exception of rain water and food obtained at the Cornucopia or via sponsors) was poisonous, she quickly turned the gun into a lethal weapon.

A tube used to shoot darts at targets. Often used by tribesmen. Expect [[PoisonedWeapons poison]] and [[TranquillizerDart tranquillizer]] darts.

Its near-silence makes it an ideal exotic weapon for an assassin. It's surprisingly common for the user to accidentally inhale the dart. Another regular gag is for the target to grab the end of the gun and blow the dart ''back''.
