* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest's'' Maria Graham gets a flare gun as an assigned weapon. Later, she shoots somebody with it, and while it ends up bouncing off his chest, it ricochets into the girl next to him and gets caught in her shirt, [[KillItWithFire burning a hole right through victim before igniting and vaporizing her torso, and then burning down everything in a 20 yard radius.]] Flare guns are ''dangerous.''

* ''Series/TheHardyBoysNancyDrewMysteries'': the 3rd season episode ''Dangerous Waters'' not only has Frank Hardy firing a flare gun to signal the rescue boat to come in, but also fires it directly at the mooks to drive them off.
* ''Series/NCIS'' episode "Being Bad" had a cornered suspect kill himself with a flare gun; as noted, it didn't penetrate his skull but killed him via the impact off his head. Seen-it-all coroner Ducky said a flare gun suicide was a first, even for him.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/Bloodborne'', the Silencing Blank is a flare gun which drives away co-operators or returning to your own world if you're in the other's world, rather than calling someone in.

In fiction, the Flare Gun also serves as a weapon, though probably AwesomeButImpractical against anything but enemies explicitly weak to [[WeakenedByTheLight light]] or [[KillItWithFire fire]], as it can be very inaccurate. For some reason, they tend to be treated like single-handed {{Grenade Launcher}}s in many works. It should be noted that real-life flares don't fly fast enough to enter the human body, if you got shot with one, you would mostly get hurt by the impact as the flare bounced off.

* In ''Let Him Have It'', a schoolteacher asks his entire class to hand in their guns. One student places a Webley flare pistol on the teacher's desk. The teacher identifies it as a "Wolseley" and comments he hadn't seen one in quite some time.



* A variation: in ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'', Sam Vimes used a modified [[BambooTechnology Clacks]] flare (no gun involved) as a weapon against a werewolf. [[spoiler: Said werewolf's over-confidence and instincts made him catch the flare rocket in his mouth, which promptly exploded and killed him.]] Later the story was greatly exaggerated, leaving the flare out, and making Vimes an in-universe MemeticBadass: the man who killed a werewolf barehanded.
