* From ''Series/GetSmart'': "Would you believe this finger is a real gun?"
** They do find it hard to believe, so Max fires the gun in the air to prove otherwise. Unfortunately it's single shot. Max later reveals that it has a ''second'' shot [[RuleOfFunny ... and promptly fires it into the air.]]
** On one show Max is kidnapped and subjected to a ManchurianAgent treatment - they have to let him 'escape' to avoid suspicion, but he repeatedly misses opportunities handed to him. At one point an agent approaches him, he raises a finger and the agent 'surrenders', wise to the old 'finger gun' trick. Max insistently points out it's only a finger until the agent walks out in frustration. Max keeps plotting an escape, muttering "Come ''on'', Smart, use that fantastic ''brain'' of yours!"
* At one point in Season three of ''Series/AgentsOfShield'', Coulson claims that he has one built into his artificial hand. But since he never uses it, he may have been bluffing.

* This is Franklin's signature ability in ''Manga/HunterXHunter''. Justified in that the fingers themselves are fully biological and functional, but what he's shooting are {{Ki Attack}}s. They still fall under this trope, however, as his stance and hand gestures when he shoots, and the damage and destruction they inflict, are as if he's wielding ten miniature machine guns.

* The Lilim [[SexBot Dorothy]] of VisualNovel/VA11HALLA has these, for self-defense. Even though you see her fingers, it can be difficult to notice, but [[ActionGirl Sei]] points out that her fingertips are bigger than they should be, and [[CouldSayItBut suggests getting smaller caps for the barrels]].
