->''"The [[TropeNamer gun katas]]. Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire."''

* In VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}, Reaper's Ultimate, Death Blossom, essentially turns him into a blazing Gun Kata typhoon, blowing away pretty much any enemy player in his direct vicinity. It doesn't do great at the "avoiding return fire" part, admittedly...

* Banban Akaza in ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger'' uses a fighting style called "Juu Kun Do", named after Jeet Kune Do with the Japanese word for "gun" added in. There's a reason why his name sounds like [[MeaningfulName "bang bang"]].
** Don't forget his Series/PowerRangersSPD counterpart Jack Landors.

* The ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' episode "VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} vs. [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante]]" has a short sequence of short range gun kata that doesn't really leads anywhere as both combatants are too agile to take any bullets (despite Bayonetta having ''[[MultiArmedAndDangerous four]]'' guns), and they have to switch to their mystic powers and swords to really make a difference.
