* In ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'', Vash the Stampede uses his fingers to pretend that it's a gun in order to threaten the Villain of the Episode, and then "shoots" it off once the Mexican Standoff has ended. Though it should be noted he hid his finger under his cloths, making it look like a real concealed gun.

* ''ComicBook/TheLosers'': Jensen threatens a security guard with his fingers, claiming to be "dangerously telekinetic". Of course, none of the guards believe him, until Jensen says "bang" and the guard falls over.

* ''Series/RealMen'': Hopeless suburbanite John Ritter tries to use a finger gun to cover super agent Jim Belushi during a gun fight. Ritter comes to believe that the finger gun works when Belushi coincidentally fires at the same target. Later, [[spoiler: an enemy is so surprised by the finger gun that he backs into a sharp stick and dies. Finally, the Big Bad is shot by a minor character who was believed to be dead, leading Belushi to believe it works]].

* ''WestOfLoathing'' has this as an option early in the game. If you haven't found a ranged weapon yet, but try to do a ranged attack during a fight, your character will point their finger at an enemy and shout "Pew!", which [[RuleOfFunny actually does damage]] comparable to an unarmed punch.
