* One DLC vehicle in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'', the Genki Manapault, uses this as its main weapon. Driving into pedestrians, gang members, or even ''your own homies'' sucks them up, at which point they can be promptly fired out of the cannon atop the car, leaving a trail of sparkling stars along the way.

* ''TheTick'' had a supporting cast member called The Human Bullet who was frequently fired at the episode's climactic battle scene by his child (or neighbor in one case). He usually had little beneficial effect on the fight.

* [[The human cannonball https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_cannonball]] is, of course, an old circus staple that still sees some use today in many performance acts. Obviously, no explosive propellant is used, so springs or compressed air is used to eject the human, with the housing still structured to look like a cannon to keep the idea of the trope alive. The targets are usually nets, air bags or bodies of water, but as noted on TheOtherWiki, it still comes with its share of risks, specifically during [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou the landing part]] of the act.
