* In one old ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' cartoon, the gang is investigating a haunted candy factory (could be worse places to work, right?) when the MonsterOfTheWeek locks Scooby, Shaggy, and the factory's owner, Cass Elliot, in a storeroom. Fortunately, Cass finds a mechanical jawbreaker dispenser, and fixes it to shoot jawbreakers at the door until they batter it down.

* An urban legend states that a US squad fighting in UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo requested "tootsie rolls", sometimes used as slang among the armed forces as bullets. However, the supplier of the request didn't understand this, so he shipped ''actual Tootsie Rolls'', a popular fudge roll candy. Turns out, while joked to be hardened enough to used as ammunition after going stale from the long shipment process, the candies provided much-needed sugars, which helped energize the squad to win the front.

** They've also launched chickens and steaks out of air cannons. The steaks was to test if it was an effective method of tenderising the meat (it was less tenderising and more pulverising). For the chickens, see the Real Life section below for the details.

* Peacekeeper pulse weapons in ''Series/FarScape'' run on "chakan oil," which is made from the tannot root. The root itself is quite edible, though it tends to brainwash most races who eat it (except for Hynerians, and presumably others with a similar biochemistry, where it turns their body fluids explosive.) The chakan oil itself is apparently also edible, since Crichton and Aeryn are both shown licking their chakan oil cartridges to check the levels. It's nutritional value has never been revealed, though it can be assumed to be not much, since Moya's crew has routinely run short on foodstuffs, but always has plenty of ammo (then again, no one may have been brave enough to try and eat Aeryn's bullets.)
* ''{{Community}}'' in the stop-motion animated "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas", Abed's friends come to his rescue, attacking Professor Duncan with festive weapons, including a gun that shoots candy canes - and candy cane nunchuks.
