* Almost every blaster in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' saga is this by principle, all based on a real world firearm mocked up to look futuristic. Two of the most popular weapons is the DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol (based on the Mauser C96 pistol & Han Solo's weapon of choice), and the E-11 Blaster Rifle (based on the Sterling submachine gun, standard issue for the Imperial Stormtroopers).

** The ''VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga'' has a nice variety, ranging from the humble [[BoringButPractical Bryar Pistol]] to the [[{{BFG}} Concussion Rifle]]. The latter being conspicuously absent in ''Jedi Outcast'' in favor of the [=PLX=] Missile Launcher. But returned in ''Jedi Academy'', with a vengeance.
** The [[SwissArmyWeapon DC-17m Interchangeable Weapon System]] issued to Delta Squad in ''VideoGame/RepublicCommando''. It's a blaster rifle, a sniper rifle, and even an anti-armor grenade launcher that can easily be reconfigured for the right job. Also there is the [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter ACP Array Gun]] and the Wookiee Rocket Launcher that can be picked up.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}'' series is a semi-frequent offender, ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'' having the biggest imapct for being the TropeCodifier for the [[GatlingGood chaingun]] as a staple for shooter games, and its 2001 sequel ''VideoGame/ReturnToCastleWolfenstein'' making it better with the Venom chaingun, a [[{{BFG}} 12.7mm monstrosity]] that can and will reduce anything to little giblets. ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' also gives us the Laserkraftwerk, a big, bulky [[FrickenLaserBeams laser gun]] that starts out primarily as a tool like the Gravity or Portal guns above, but with upgrades across the game eventually turning into one of your biggest and best options, able to turn an entire squadron of Nazis into cinders with one shot.

* Franchise/RoboCop carries an Auto-9 pistol, which is fired in single-shots and [[MoreDakka bursts]] at various points through the films. Like Deckard's Blaster above, it's been popular enough to show up in non-Robocop works, such as the film adaptation of ''Film/SinCity'' and ''VideoGame/FarCry3BloodDragon''.

* ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' give us the Good Samaritan. A giant revolver that fires four, yet very large and powerful shots. The barrel and cylinder forged from church bells, with the grips made from pieces of the cross Jesus was crucified on. There is also Big Baby, which is this time a revolving shotgun that fires very large shells.

The Pulse Rifle is additionally equipped with a GrenadeLauncher and the Smart Gun is [[{{BFG}} so big, its user carries it using a Steadicam harness]].
