* Narrowly avoided in ''Film/RushHour 2''. The script called for {{Jackie Chan}} to accidentally catch a pistol during a climactic scuffle, only to immediately flip out and throw it away. Jackie pointed out that it was not only internally inconsistent for his character (a cop who previously had no problem using guns), but also ''[[TooDumbToLive extremely stupid]]'' of him to ditch a weapon when surrounded by people trying to kill him.

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E4TheSontaranStratagem "The Sontaran Stratagem"]]/[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E5ThePoisonSky "The Poison Sky"]], after repeatedly telling UNIT to not open fire on the Sontarans and getting guns pointed at him, the Doctor finally gets fed up. When Luke Rattigan tries to hold him at gunpoint, the Doctor simply takes the gun out of Luke's hand and throws it away, ([[{{Badass}} without breaking stride]]), muttering, "If I see one more gun...", "The people with the guns are usually the bad guys."

* An amusing scene in the American ''WesternAnimation/StreetFighter'' animated series had Guile given a license to acquire weapons. Being a manly man, he crushes it in his fist and declares "Guns are for wimps!" Just a reminder, Guile is in the ''U.S. Army''. Other depictions of him never show him hating guns, though since the series is all about hand-to-hand combat, it's more of a HandWave than anything else. Then again, per the rules for the ''Street Fighter'' RPG (and mentioned in the infamous Murphy's Rules column), Guile doesn't know HOW to use the things.

For extra irony, the Street Fighter action figure line that was being produced at the time and based on the cartoon gave all the figures, Guile included, massive guns and missile launchers (the action figures were produced by Hasbro and reused accessories from ''WesternAnimation/GIJoe'' toys).

** The society of Caminus, introduced in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersWindblade'', favors the use of bladed weapons as they consider guns wasteful. Windblade and Chromia use a sword and poleaxe respectively, and when we see the Camien Security forces in'' ComicBook/TheTransformersCombinerWars'', they use spears. By that time, however, Chromia has started using projectile weaponry.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Sensei Ito: Being a martial artist, he used to not use guns. Then one of his sparring partners beat him by pulling a gun on him in the training room and shooting him with a paint round. He got over his aversion to guns real fast, after that.

** On the other side, the Joker in doesn't like them because they make things end too quickly, and prefers knives, so that he may savor the reactions of his victims. Of course, that doesn't stop him from using everything from shotguns to rocket launchers.

* Britain in general seems to dislike guns - for instance, it has one of the strictest regimes of gun control in the world, with handguns being illegal for private citizens and shotguns and rifles regulated to almost the same degree. Similarly, it is a point of great pride for many British people that Britain is the only industrial country of its size which does not regularly arm its police force, and, even when members of the police are killed by armed crooks (something which is noticeably rare) both police and public are overwhelmingly against equipping bobbies on the beat with guns. Even criminals seem to prefer knives.

** Orks charge into melee as soon as they get the chance despite having guns, as it gives them something to do while running and yelling.

* Sophie Audouin Mamikonian uses this trope on an entire planet,in Tara Duncan. All of its inhabitants fear them, and the laws prohibits the ownership and the use of guns. Guns often either don't work and explode in the user's hands or [[GoneHorriblyRight they work too well]] and the bullets shred everything in their path.
