* ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' has the Chaingun return, with a mixture of added realism and insanity. On the realistic side, the gun needs time to spin up to full speed during which it fires slower. This can be counterbalanced with the [[BoringButPractical Gatling Motor]] which lets the gun be spun up without firing. On the insanity side, it now comes with a Mobile Turret option that transforms it into ''two side-by-side gatling guns''. It tears through enemies, and ammo, as fast as you might expect save that it overheats quickly.

** [=GSh=]-6-30 being so light even [[HoistByHisOwnPetard became its own undoing]] when used as an aircraft cannon. It was a principal weapon of the [=MiG=]-27 fighter-bomber of TheEighties, but the Soviets did a mistake of trying to mate it to an existing airframe (of a [=MiG=]-23 fighter), instead of creating a new aiframe around it like with GAU-8 and A-10. Because it's been designed as a ''naval'' CIWS gun, for the much sturdier mount than possible on an aircraft, the inherently high vibration of a gas-operated cannon wasn't much of a problem on a ship. On a plane, though, firing a barely less powerful round with about twice as higher rate of fire as GAU-8, it basically shook the aircraft apart. Broken landing lights and vibration-induced fatigue cracks were a norm, and in one notable incident ''an instrument panel fell out'' on a pilot's knees after firing the gun. Unsurprisingly, its use was limited to the Navy ever since.

* In the ''Anime/BlackRockShooter'' anime, Black★Rock Shooter uses one at several points. At one point, Insane BRS and [[spoiler: Mato transformed into BRS]] ''duel each other'' using gatling guns, and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome it is just as awesome as it sounds.]]

* ''Film/KickAss'' Big Daddy and Mindy are shown buying something that while unknown, is apparently awesome enough to make them {{Squee}} with delight. Mindy later makes it more awesome by adding Gatling Guns to it, still not revealing what it is. The climax shows what could be possibly be awesome enough to have Gatling Guns as an accessory, [[spoiler: a JetPack]].

* ''VideoGame/DefenseGridTheAwakening'''s Gun towers start out with a wimpy chaingun, but can be upgraded to a tri-barreled Gatling, then two tri-barreled Gatlings. They're also SuperEffective against DeflectorShields, and one of only three towers that can hit flying enemies.

Ever since Richard Gatling's 1861 invention, the rapid-firing rotary gun has had a special place among {{BFG}}s. Because it's basically [[ChainsawGood the gun equivalent of a chainsaw]], there is an undeniable attraction to a gun which can produce high enough rates of fire to cleanly trim hedges, [[Series/{{Mythbusters}} cut down trees]], or, in the case of the [[TruthInTelevision GAU-8 Avenger]], ''saw tanks in half''.

half''. The ''practical'' advantage of the having multiple rotating barrels is that the heat generated during firing will be distributed over multiple barrels instead of one, preventing {{overheating}} and weapon damage from having such high rates of fire.
