*** ''[[Anime/DigimonXrosWars Digimon Fusion]]'', however, recolors him in blue.

*** ''[[Anime/DigimonXrosWars Digimon Fusion]]'', however, recolors him in blue. It also recolors anything looking like a gun ''with lightening sparking around it'' in the English dub.


Added DiffLines:

* Just like with ''Digimon Fusion'' above, the Nick dub of ''VideoGame/DanballSenki'' also recolored all guns with lightening sparking all over them.

* This trope was, ironically, averted by a bizarre case of ExecutiveMeddling in the case of ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''. Originally, the episodes set in World War II were supposed to actually be the Marvel Universe conception of World War II, Nazis and all. Realistic firearms were also called for. However, according to original showrunner Christopher Yost, Disney's BSP unit made them a deal -- they could ''either'' have Nazis in [=WW2=], but they had to use lasers, or they could have realistic firearms but no Nazis. Hence ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, the ComicBook/HowlingCommandos and [[ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} James Howlett]] all shoot hot lead at HYDRA, who are apparently helping unseen, unmentioned Nazis conquer Europe.

** Legends Class (smallest size class for non-[[Anime/TransformersArmada mini-cons]]. Car characters are about Hot Wheels size.) G1 Megs is even getting an orange cap. Apparently we're worried about squirrel cops shooting squirrel kids, because that's the scale we're dealing in.

* An interesting reversal: in the English dub of the ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' [=OAVs=] (the 10-episode ones) the ''lasers'' have had their sounds changed to sound like ''guns'' (specifically Kei's blaster has a sound reminiscent of a Desert Eagle). This was due to there not being a Music & Effects track to dub over, so a completely new one had to be made. They still fire laser blasts, however.

* This trope is the reason we have an advisory for guns on ''Podcast/{{RFG}} (Radio For Gamers)''.

* The heroes in ''WesternAnimation/WildWestCowboysOfMooMesa'' used pistols that fire harmless sheriff's stars.
* ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'', is probably the first example that comes to mind when thinking of this trope. While there initially existed assorted evidence that the guns weren't meant to be perceived as lasers—more-or-less realistic sound effects, boxes labelled “ammo” with visible bullets—the show eventually came to acknowledge the lasers for what they were, including details such as power settings and whatnot. This effect actually made the Joes' laser-specialist characters, Flash and Sci-Fi, utterly useless in the cartoon. That said, the lasers don't even seem to be that particularly effective, since in the incredibly rare occasion someone gets hit, they tend to get back up fairly quickly.

* In the first few episodes of 4Kids' ''Manga/OnePiece'' dub, guns would occasionally be replaced with a sillier-looking equivalent. One shot of a standard flintlock pistol seen in the OP universe was heavily edited into [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/621839602b084eb8963a12f25350bea7.jpg something that looks more like a hammerhead on a spring.]] (The weapon changed back to a gun in a long shot and a few other frames that 4Kids missed.) Simultaneously, other guns would be edited or recolored to look less realistic -- Navy soldiers' rifles were changed to resemble super-soakers, for example -- but would still explicitly shoot bullets.

* Changes in American gun culture, akin to those that made things like [[NoSmoking smoking]] and drinking alcohol an increasingly rare phenomenon in American media.[[labelnote:†]] Despite restrictions on the ''availability'' of guns in America being loosened quite a lot since the 1970s, the proportion of the American population who actually ''own'' guns has dropped by over a third in that same period. Interestingly, the number of ''guns'' in private hands did not go down during that time period.[[/labelnote]]

* Nintendo's Famicom Light Gun originally featured [[http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/9/9/3/6/6/6/webimg/360013746_o.jpg a realistic revolver design in Japan]]. When it was converted into the [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]] Zapper overseas, [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/earthbound/images/9/9b/Nes_zapper.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20080517062954 it was given a "futuristic" redesign]] to comply with U.S. safety standards. Later versions of the Zapper even changed the color of the gun's coating from its original gray to orange due to revised standards. This also applies to all light gun peripherals that had been exported from Japan to the overseas market. Light guns such as Sega's Virtua Gun (renamed the Stunner overseas) and Namco's [=GunCon=] were originally sold in realistic-looking black coating in Japan but were repainted orange for the overseas market to distinguish them from real guns.

** ''[[VideoGame/Splatoon2 Splatoon 2]]'''s single player trailer featured the player character using what looked like an [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FN_P90 FN P90]] as their main weapon. Of course, the final version of the weapon was heavily modified to look more toylike, in line with the other weapons in the game.
