->''"No, she's absolutely right," said Zeb, patting the enormous pistol at his hip. "This '''is''' a penis substitute. After all, if I could kill at a range of thirty meters with my penis, I wouldn't need to carry this thing around, now would I?"''
-->--''Literature/TheNumberOfTheBeast'' by '''Creator/RobertAHeinlein'''

Guns, cannons, swords, daggers... they're all penises.

After all, most of them are vaguely phallic (any object longer than it is wide = phallic), they penetrate human flesh, and [[ARealManIsAKiller killing people is a sign of virility]]. In the case of guns, they even "[[MoreDakka ejaculate]]" bullets, while swords tend to have the reminiscent shape, with the long blade section and the thicker hilt guard in the bottom, and are usually held at around crotch height -- and, in some cases, kill with a thrusting motion. So it's not much of a surprise that weapons in general are a very popular source of phallic symbolism, if not ''the'' most popular.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime ]]

* Happens oh-so often in ''GunsmithCats''. Unsurprising, given the two themes of the show are "guns" and "fanservice."
* And from ''Anime/{{S-CRY-ed}}'', who could forget: "It's thick, it's hard, and it's coming to get you!"
* There is a piece of ''LyricalNanoha'' fan art that describes how [[DefeatMeansFriendship "the harder you get beaten by Nanoha, the harder you get hooked on her (with some exceptions)."]] Sure enough, [[DarkMagicalGirl Fate]] seems unsatisfied with her #4 ranking (Vivio, their adoptive daughter, being #1), and pleads to Nanoha, "[[LesYay Pierce through me right now!]] With that [[WaveMotionGun fat pink thing]] of yours!"
* [[GundamWing Heero Yuy]] and his infamous [[TrouserSpace Spandex Space]]. [[PantsPositiveSafety Guess what he usually pulls out of those shorts?]]
** Despite the fact that you can see the gun tucked into his waistband in a couple of episodes, for years fans have made jokes about his "[[AssShove secret hiding place]]".
* ''YuYuHakusho'' example: [[spoiler: Sensui's Kazuya personality's gun-arm. What he does to Yusuke with it looks ONE HELL of a lot like PrisonRape.]] This is lampshaded in the dub:
-->[[spoiler:'''Kazuya''' ('pressing gun to Yusuke's face'): "Open your mouth, and close your eyes..."]]
* ''MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'' has a killer keep a ridiculously long revolver down the front of his pants. The guy is a huge parody of Eagleland attitudes, so he's not the most subtle person around.
* In ''{{Gamaran}}'' there's Zenmaru's great katana, Sadanaga: he's extremely proud of its size and power, gets annoyed if anyone comments on it and he's a bit flustered by Shingo's [[BladeOnAStick Onidachi]] (a 4 meter long spear), stating that's even bigger than his sword....
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Aporro Granz releases his ''Resurreccion'' form by...well...[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGn4XBVA3z0 see for yourself]].
** Also, where Mayuri Kurotsuchi keeps his sword.
* In ''Manga/BlackCat'', after smashing Train into the wall, Creed rants about how his disappointment and anger toward Train has caused his (imaginary) sword to grow enormous in strength and size. While holding a rose between his teeth, no less.
* ''{{Naruto}}'' and Sasuke have a lot of HoYay between them. And Sasuke regularly attempts to kill Naruto by stabbing him with his sword.
* ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': swords all over the place. Most notably, magic swords that you [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything draw from your lover's heart]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Art ]]

* Inversion: H.R. Giger occasionally uses guns as a yonic metaphor. Google "Birth Machine" for an example.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comics ]]

* All over the place in TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks. (Not that TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks was completely tame: just look at the page picture!)
* Used hilariously for a supremely ridiculous villain in ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'', who was ridiculed all his life for having a small penis and thus built a giant cannon to attach to his crotch and called himself, what the hell, [[http://www.headinjurytheater.com/article59.htm Codpiece]]. The NightmareFuel comes in when said super villain is defeated by a transsexual heroine... who has the power to dissolve objects.
* Towards the end of ''{{Preacher}}'', Herr Starr develops the disturbing (and hilarious) habit of holding his gun over his crotch and repeating "'''Doom''' cock...'''Doom''' cock..."
* When Comicbook/{{Superman}} rescues Lana from LexLuthor's {{mooks}} in an early PostCrisis comic, he faces down a Mook with a huge bazooka and asks "Overcompensating for something there, fella?"
* Spoofed in the movie posters for a 1985 ''DykesToWatchOutFor'' [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/zizyphus/34585797/ comic strip]] (famous for being the strip that popularized the UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest).

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* ''[[Film/BonnieAndClyde Bonnie & Clyde]]'' has a very sexually charged scene where Bonnie checks out Clyde's gun.
* In ''FromDuskTillDawn'', the character Sex Machine has a "crotch gun," basically a codpiece with a gun on it.
** It also made an appearance in the Mariachi's guitar case full of guns in ''{{Desperado}}'', with the Mariachi commenting that it saved his life once, but we never see him use it.
* One scene from ''BeyondTheValleyOfTheDolls'' has a girl fellating a gun before being shot.
* ''Film/FightClub'' opens with [[HoYay Tyler's gun in the Narrator's mouth]].
* Gay Perry from ''KissKissBangBang'' manages to kill a guy by literally shooting from the, er, hip.
* Lisa Bonet's character in ''Film/AngelHeart'' [[spoiler:is killed by gunshot. The shot in question comes from a [[FanDisservice gun stuffed into her nether regions]].]]
* ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun''
** The opening credits to quite a few Film/JamesBond films involve the silhouettes of naked women and guns.
* ''DrStrangelove'''s final scene has this as well.
** Not just the ''final'' scene.
* ''TankGirl'' has a moment loving on the gun of the tank she ganks from Water Power. To the tune of ''Shaft'', no less.
** And later on, explicitly called out as she rides the cannon up to the window of a truck. 'Feeling a little inadequate?'
* ''InTheLineOfFire''. When Agent Horrigan (Clint Eastwood) [[{{Roofhopping}} misses a jump]] and ends up [[{{Cliffhanger}} dangling from a rooftop]]. Mitch Leary (John Malkovitch) pops up overhead, prompting Horrigan to take aim despite his failing grip. Leary [[SuckMyGun teases Horrigan's pistol]] a bit before deciding that he'll take care of him later, and helps Horrigan to a nearby fire escape.
* That scene in ''{{Videodrome}}'' where James Woods grows a vagina and then starts masturbating it with a gun.
* ''DirtyHarry''. "My, that's a [[HandCannon big one]]."
* ''ImGonnaGitYouSucka''. Bad guy to partner:
-->Willie: How come their guns are so much bigger than ours?
-->Thug: It's a phallic thing.
* ''{{Orgazmo}}.'' Cock rocket. Need I say more?
* ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'': Dark Helmet's line: "I see your Schwartz is as big as mine. Let's see how well you handle it." Any questions? [[hottip:* :He's talking about their pseudo-{{Laser Blade}}s.]]
* In ''ThePirateMovie'', the Pirate King is asked "Is that a knife in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?" It turns out it ''is'' a knife in his pocket, as he pulls it out and throws it into the wall beside the woman's head. However, he then demonstrates that he is also pleased to see her.
* In the first dream level of ''{{Inception}}'', [[ShapeShifter Mr. Eames]] produces a [[{{BFG}} grenade launcher]] from his {{Hammerspace}}, blows away a group of projections and says "You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." Persons who do not feel that this implies "I can also do this with my penis" are hereby commended on the cleanliness of their minds.
* ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' features the infamous shower scene—the phallic-shaped knife, repeatedly stabbing Marion. Not to mention the killer having sublimated his sexual repression into murderous urges.
* In the ''Film/{{Scream}}'' movies, the serial killer targets young women, simultaneously acting seductive towards them and trying to stab them with a knife.
* There is [[http://www.noob.us/humor/strangest-gun-fight-ever/ a clip]] from the Swedish movie ''Kopps'' where a police officer throws his gun into the air, opens his pants, catches the gun in the open fly, then buckles his belt over the gun. He then guns down two criminals using pelvic thrusts. Then takes out the third by hacky-sacking the gun and kicking it into mook's face.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* Discussed in ''Series/ThirtyRock'':
-->'''Liz:''' What is it with men and guns?
-->'''Tracy:''' Well, I think I speak for the both of us when I say "because they're [[FreudWasRight metal penises]]."
* ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'': Have you seen my forcelance?
* Used deliberately and disturbingly in ''SixFeetUnder'' when [[spoiler:a carjacker forces Dave to suck on his gun and threatens to shoot him with it before running away. In a show where AnyoneCanDie, it seemed like he might pull the trigger.]]
* It's [[EpilepticTrees been speculated]] that this is why [[XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]] prefers [[WeaponOfChoice her chakram]] to the sword, since it's yonic rather than phallic.
* In the episode "The Gun" of ''[[Series/{{MASH}} M*A*S*H]]'', Frank steals a gun. Margaret also gets an orgasm when Frank shows her the gun (she then doesn't know yet that Frank has stolen the gun).
* Played with in ''Series/BurnNotice'', where the girlfriend of the not-too-bright son of the villain of the week gets the hots for Michael.
--> '''Debbie:''' I ... want to see your gun.\\
'''Michael:''' Okay, that's not my gun. ''Not'' my gun.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* In the ''{{Dragaera}}'' series, several characters have CargoShip-level emotional involvement with their {{EmpathicWeapon}}s (which are all swords or daggers), are described as stroking them compulsively, and in some cases, the narrator comments on how [[CompensatingForSomething the weapon is much larger than the wielder]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music ]]

* The NineInchNails song "Big Man With A Gun."
* [[{{Gayngster}} Deadlee's]] "Suck Mah Gun."
* "Gunz Yo" by Sage Francis.
* The Lulu [[JamesBond Bond theme]] "The Man With The Golden Gun," in a hilariously unsubtle way.
* Cher in ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5G4O5AMSevc this music video]]).
** MitchBenn in the video for "Happy Birthday, War," as a parody of the Cher video.
* Kings of Metal by Manowar. The line "We got the biggest amps, man they blast." But the whole song, as well as Manowar image in general, are an example of this, or more suitably, Not compensating for anything thrope. As those thropes are close, in case of Manowar, they complete each other.
* The band Machine Gun Fellatio.
* The {{Ludo}} song Go-Getter Greg: "I'm a go-getter guy with a gun on my hip, I'm just searching for that someone to be firing it."
* The Toybox song 007 has "Bad girls scream when I show my gun!"

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* Probably a theory of many tropers about the popularity of the FirstPersonShooter and ThirdPersonShooter genres.
* "Hey Vyse, my cannon is bigger than yours!" - Vigoro, ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' (he showed up in a ship with a huge freaking cannon mounted on it).
* In ''Videogame/MetalGearSolid'', Revolver Ocelot is the AnthropomorphicPersonification of this trope. Just listen to his speeches about "slamming a bullet down a shaft" when reloading...
** Where does DepravedBisexual KnifeNut Vamp keep his favorite blade? Exactly where you'd think.
* A quote from Kreia about the lightsaber in ''[[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic KotOR II]]'': "For the male, it seems to have inordinate importance. But we shall leave such male preoccupations for philosophers and cultural historians."
* In ''VideoGame/{{Dystopia}}'', another heavy kills people with a [[http://www.dystopia-game.com/wiki/images/d/de/Dys_mk2_Corp_Heavy.jpg white stream of ions]].
* When visiting the Citadel for the first time in ''Videogame/MassEffect1'', the crew of the almost tiny FragileSpeedster ''Normandy'' is deeply impressed when passing TheBattlestar ''Destiny Ascension'', the biggest warship in the entire galaxy. Which leads pilot Joker to one of his usual moments of snarking:
--> '''Ashley:''' ''"Look at the size of that ship!"''
--> '''Joker:''' ''"Well, size isn't everything."''
--> '''Ashley:''' ''"Why so touchy Joker?"''
--> '''Joker:''' ''"I'm just saying: You have to have firepower, too!"''
** He gets to ''prove'' it too - [[spoiler: He and the Normandy get to deliver the killing blow to Sovereign.]]
* A nice Renegade response from Female Shepard at Omega from ''Videogame/MassEffect2'':
-->'''Merc Recruiter:''' Well, aren't you sweet? You're in the wrong place, honey. Strippers' quarters are that way.
-->'''Shepard:''' [''pulling out her gun''] Show me yours, tough guy. I'll bet mine's bigger.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Webcomics ]]

* '''Don't''' insinuate this to Vulcan Raven in ''TheLastDaysOfFOXHOUND''.
-->'''Raven:''' I don't think we've been introduced. My name's Vulcan Raven. And this here's m'gun.
-->'''Ninja:''' So... small dick, huh?
-->'''Raven:''' Congratulations! Your death will be an extra 25% more painful.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Original ]]

* Literalized in ''ItsAlwaysTime'': Strawberry Banana (aka SB) (she's made of Jell-O. ItMakesSenseInContext.) is a woman with a penis. A ''detachable'' penis. And when she detaches it, it turns into a sword.
* An over-the-top feminist review of ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' uses this in a ridiculously contrived analysis regarding the misogynist implications of shooter games. It then praised Portal for it's feminist aspects, that included the portals' semblance to a vagina.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* There was a {{Disney}} short made to drum up support for the troops during WorldWarTwo. One scene features a cannon being loaded, only to [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything go limp after running out of ammo]].
