* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' gives us a non-comedic version of the "gun actually fires" variant: the Rei Gun ([[DubNameChange Spirit Gun]]). However, it averts the FingerPokeOfDoom trope, since the Rei Gun requires a lot of the users spiritual energy. Early on, Yusuke could only used in once per day, but later on, he could increase his limit through training and it also became a lot stronger and bigger as an result. Since it is his SignatureMove, it's basically his most powerful one.

** However, a couple variations do allow something akin to this. In his Leopard Zoan Hybrid mode, Rob Lucci performed a variation known as Tobu Shigan "Bachi" ( "Flying Finger Gun: 'Plectrum'"). A projectile version of Shigan that fires sharp compressed air bullets from the finger, it's implid that the claws from his Zoan hybrid form allows him to fire them. He even made a fiery version in the anime, created through friction.
