* ''ComicBook/ZipiYZape'': Gendarmes (''not'' policemen as it should be, because of censorship) use sabers instead of guns.

** 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.

* Actor Creator/ChristopherWalken has an intense hatred of handguns, so much that he doesn't even like holding them.

* 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.

* R.A Salvatore plays with this in many of his characters. Of them, [[Literature/TheLegendOfDrizzt Drizzt Do'Urden]] is probably the most opposed, as seen when he goes up against pirates armed with a smokepowder cannon in ''Passage to Dawn''. The reasons stated were actual reasons for the opposition to firearms in the Middle Ages by Feudal Nobles. Of course, the fact that they can be mass-produced, require less training and can make it possible to field a massive army in a matter of months is [[SarcasmMode beside the point]]. Paradoxically, he probably realizes this.

** Batman's distaste for guns gets lampshaded in Creator/GrantMorrison's ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]/[=WildCATS=]'' crossover, in which the League hooks up with the premiere heroes of Jim Lee's {{Wildstorm}} line. At one point when both teams go up against Epoch the Time Lord, Batman asks the raygun-toting Grifter just how good he is. When Grifter brags that in his universe Batman would have been ''his'' kid sidekick, Batman then adds, "Then you won't mind doing this without the guns." Grifter pauses for a {{Beat}}, then quips, "Aw, why not? I'll try anything once!" The beginning of the crossover features an encounter with Epoch and Wally West while he was still Kid Flash, who sizes up his new foe's huge high-tech rifle by commenting, "One of the first things I've learned in the superhero game. 'Gun' equals 'bad guy'."

* The ''aversion'' is lampshaded in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', when Kincaid congratulates Harry for his unusual foresight in carrying a gun. In fact, this [[CombatPragmatist pragmatism]] is one of Dresden's advantages over his supernatural enemies, who will show ([[PersonOfMassDestruction entirely warranted]]) caution where his magic is concerned, but neglect to protect themselves from things like bullets.

** Subverted in ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', where Zack apparently has no issues about using a sniper rifle to eliminate some robotic enemies.
** Not to mention Barret and Vincent, who are perfectly happy to show what they can do with prosthetic gun arms and pistols, respectively.
