* A group of onetime villains in ''Franchise/{{Spider-Man}}'' comic (four criminals who learned to copy Vulture's wings) used those. The curare was fatal for humans -- Spider Man was too tough to die, but would get stiffer with every dart and actually got close to succumbing. The next issue, he had to save their lives when the real Vulture came to town.

* The Kakamora in ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' use blowguns with tranquilizer darts as part of their attack. However, the tubes are very short, which might explain [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy why they don't hit anyone.]] [[spoiler: Except their own chief.]]

* ''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''.
