* In ''MyLittlePonyAndFriends,'' Fizzy's power as a unicorn is limited to bubbles. However, it turns out HeartIsAnAwesomePower: she can give you an air bubble for underwater travel, or levitate things FloatingInABubble. It came in ''much'' handier than it should have.

** Similarly, ''Mega Man V'' for the GameBoy has the Bubble Bomb, which sends an exploding bubble drifting upward, similar to the Danger Wrap; it's actually a handy anti-aerial weapon that's quite powerful and has a wide explosion radius.

* The ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' naturally conveys the games series respective attacks such as Bubble and Bubblebeam (see below). Depending on the user however, they can be ''much'' more powerful than the standard. Ash's Squirtle had a Bubblebeam powerful enough to one-hit-KO a ''Machamp'', while Lana's Popplio can create large and durable enough bubbles to base a whole battle style around it, able to stop attacks and even trap whole Pokemon in them.

* One of the Zoogs in ''VideoGame/IgglePop'' '''is''' some sort of Bubble Gun, as it shoots bubbles from his snout. It is actually quite dangerous, as the bubbles can trap Iggles , disrupting the Iggle chain and disorienting all the Iggles behind. Also, if a bubble touches the player character, it becomes trapped as well and loses a life.

* The Bubbler in ''VideoGame/CaveStory''. At level 1, it's a useless pistol. At level 2 it earns automatic fire and double damage, which is fairly okay. But at level 3 it can come in handy if you know what you're doing with it: it spews out a protective bubble "cloud", and when the bubbles pop they turn into "shrapnel" and fly forward ("forward" meaning the direction you're aiming). Holding the fire button lets each bubble pop on its own, but releasing the fire button causes your whole "cloud" to pop immediately; a full barrage of this deals considerable damage. It's balanced out by having regenerating ammo.

* A recurring element in Creator/StudioPixel's works:
**
The Bubbler in ''VideoGame/CaveStory''. ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' is something of a LethalJokeWeapon. At level 1, it's a useless pistol.pistol that slowly spits out sluggish low-range projectiles that do ScratchDamage. At level 2 it earns automatic fire and double damage, which is fairly okay. But at if you get it up to level 3 3, it can come in handy be very effective if you know what you're doing with it: it spews out a protective bubble "cloud", and when the bubbles pop they turn into "shrapnel" and fly forward ("forward" meaning the direction you're aiming). Holding the fire button lets each bubble pop on its own, but releasing the fire button causes your whole "cloud" to pop immediately; a full barrage of this deals considerable damage. It's balanced out by having regenerating ammo.This is so effective that to keep it from being too much of a GameBreaker, it was given limited ammo that regenerates over time.
** ''VideoGame/KeroBlaster'', the SpiritualSuccessor to ''Cave Story'', also has a bubble gun, though it works differently. It fires bouncing projectiles that float in water. Upgrading it doesn't change its behavior much, though the shot speed and rate of fire go up ''drastically''. Though there is no protective ''cloud'' of bubbles, firing its fully upgraded version straight up in the air can give a similar effect as it creates barriers of bouncing bubbles on both sides of the protagonist. Because of the way the projectiles bounce off walls (and, in the same way, off the protagonist) and have a fairly long lifespan before dissipating if they don't hit an enemy, it can be very deadly in tight spaces as the area becomes saturated with bubbles; it can be less about hitting the enemy and more about laying down a bunch of bubbles where the enemy is ''going to be''.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' - The Dirty Bubble IS a bubble - who can laugh menacingly, he talks like Paul Lynde and...well, he IS dangerous, really!

* This is [[FinalBoss Wart's]] weapon of choice in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'', flying outward then dropping rapidly. The character has to weave between where they fall to avoid getting struck.

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' has the Xenopopper, found as a random drop from the Martian Madness event, it creates a bubble that (after a short delay) pops to reveal a shotgun spread of projectiles which will converge at your mouse cursor, making it one of the most accurate ([[DifficultButAwesome albeit mechanically unusual]]) weapons in the game, with or without the [[HomingProjectile homing Chlorophyte Bullets]].
** The Bubble Gun is an ''endgame'' magic weapon, and it fires out very powerful bubbles at a very fast rate with low mana cost.
