* In the Sonic fanverse series ''Diminsional Wars'', most armies use lasers or some form of energy weapon, (minus the humans of the United Federation). One notorious example however is the Moebian 'Raven gunships', both the Raven 310 http://img14.deviantart.net/469f/i/2012/050/b/a/xhc_310_raven_by_thexhs-d4q8eb5.jpg , and the Raven 620 http://pre11.deviantart.net/4c85/th/pre/i/2013/293/1/b/620___raven_by_calates-d6r53ng.png are known to be hefty on usase of lasers that can now down a man, (or Mobian) in half in mere seconds.

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series has an enemy called the Beamos, which is an [[SchizoTech technologically advanced]] but immobile statue with a single lens-like eye. If Link runs into the Beamos' range of vision, it'll fire a long laser that travels across the ground at him from its eye.

* The ''Videogame/{{MOTHER}}'' series features the PK Beam series of [[PsychicPowers PSI]], which are only usable only by [[BadassAdorable Ana]] and which don't appear in either of the later games. Some of the mechanical enemies and the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Starman]] enemies are particularly fond of attacking with them, one variation of which is a OneHitKill if the target isn't wearing a Franklin Badge. Some of [[HollywoodNerd Lloyd and Jeff's]] weapons are [[RayGun Ray Guns]].

* There is a similar event in Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Literature/{{Foundation}} and Earth'': when the heroes land on a long-forgotten planet, a pack of dogs menaces them. Their microwave laser can kill the dogs, but since it gives no indication of cause, it doesn't drive them away; they end up using a different weapon, designed simply to induce pain, to turn the dogs around.
** And similarly but oppositely in ''Literature/TheDayOfTheTriffids'', although with flamethrowers: the reason they're such effective weapons is that while a gunshot will just draw all the triffids for miles to attack the gun, with a flamethrower they don't know what to retaliate against (and occasionally catch each other on fire besides). Different enemy, different response.

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront'', being a ''Star Wars'' game, has the slower-than-light "blaster bolts" we've come to expect. However, it at the same time subverts this trope: sniper rifles and some vehicle-mounted weapons utilize a beam that travels at the speed of light. In the case of the vehicles' beam cannons, it can even be swept across an enemy front ForMassiveDamage.
