* The first ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'' game, on the {{Nintendo 64}}, has a realistic-looking minigun in its arsenal (though with a pathetic rate of fire). The sequel ''Turok 2'' takes this trope up a notch with the Firestorm Cannon, essentially a minigun version of a ''plasma gun'' with [[BangBangBANG awesome noise]]. Needless to say, it's one of the best weapons.

* KingKong: In the 1970's remake, Kong is taken down not by biplanes with machine guns, but by helicopters armed with miniguns. As one troper already noted, Kong is ''shredded''. It is not an easy scene to watch. Interestingly, this movie is probably the first time most moviegoers saw a gatling gun in action, aside from a western that featured the early hand-cranked version. After this, they probably didn't want to see it again.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', new character "Blood Splatterer" Coriboo is seen wielding a hand-held crank-operated one. Probably how he got the nickname.

** With advancements in both aircraft design and precision munitions, gun-based AntiAir solutions have fallen out of favor given that the effective range of many guided bombs and missiles is measured in tens of miles, allowing an aircraft to engage ground targets from outside of gun range[[note:although, if used in concert with missile-based defenses, anti-air guns have opportunities to take shots at aircraft attempting to fly below the engagement envelope of Surface to Air Missile batteries instead.]] That said, it wasn't unheard of for Vulcan-equipped AntiAir platforms to see use against enemy ''ground'' forces. Against anything that wasn't a tank or a particularly solid fortification, Vulcans and other rapid-fire cannon systems have proven devastatingly effective, provided they are allowed within a few miles of the target.

** The [[Manga/MobileSuitGamdamSEEDAstray Astray Blue Frame Second L]] has the Tactical Arms, a MorphWeapon capable of transforming between a {{BFS}} and a Gatling gun. For the latter, the blades serve as a bipod for the Gatling gun.

* ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' features building-sized rotary cannons as part of the Kinetic Weapons family mounted on starships and space stations, with the most notable example being Autocannons like the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ripper and Stormfire]] models. They have mediocre damage ratings but good accuracy and insane rates of fire, which makes them useful for fending off small, agile targets as well as preventing shield regeneration due to next to no delay between hits. Equipping ships with many hardpoints with nothing but these will inevitably result in a spectacular display of MoreDakka [[RecycledInSpace In Space]], and even more so when deployed as an entire fleet. Gauss Cannons are another, very powerful kinetic weapon system with three barrels but fire them sequentially instead of like a rotary weapon, so they arguably don't count.
