* In ''SaintsRow'' and its sequel, one of the most powerful weapons is the 'Pimp Cane' which is... well, a stick. With a built-in shotgun, which is obscenely powerful, capable of blowing up a car with two blasts or so. At impressive range, even...
* The Guardian class had these in ''TabulaRasa''; it was their class weapon capable of dealing considerable damage in hand to hand combat as well as firing type-specific ranged attacks. Electrical staves fired ball lightning, Incendiary staves fired... well, fireballs, and so on. You get the idea.
* Sort of inverted in ''Civilization IV'': while archers would draw short swords to fight in melee combat, longbowmen just smacked people around with their longbows, staff-style.

* Staves and wands in ''GuildWars'' often have properties that enhance spellcasting, but on their own, they just fire unguided magic projectiles. Like all other weapons in the game, you don't need training to use them, but they're much less effective if you don't have the proper attributes.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' and its [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs sequel]] [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS series]], Raising Heart and company become increasingly gun-like over time, even getting clips, cartridges, and a trigger in TheMovie.
** As the page image shows, this is actually the standard weapon used by Enforcers. However, few of their weapons ever become as gun-like as [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Raging/Raising]] Heart. Storm Raider, the usual device of the character in the picture, has a combat mode that looks more like a Dragunov SVD than a magic weapon, Teana's Phantom Mirage is either a single or a pair of sci-fi looking pistols and Runessa's Silver Dagger is an actual firearm with an Armed Intelligence mounted on it.

* ''TheBattleForWesnoth'' features Dwarves, who use [[FantasyGunControl thundersticks]]. The sprites show something like flintlock muskets, but the portrait for the Thunderer/Thunderguard has a hand cannon, as described in RealLife below.

* ''Series/Earth2'''s native aliens, Terrians, wield special staffs that allow them to channel lightning-like energy bursts or magnify sunlight into a powerful light source.

to:

* ''Series/Earth2'''s native aliens, Terrians, wield special staffs that allow them to channel lightning-like energy bursts or magnify sunlight into a powerful light source. More of a subversion of the trope, as these aren't the usual directed energy weapons, though they can be used well in self-defence.
