* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'': Not truly a cannon, but the Ultrasafe Personnel Launcher used by the gnomes in Steelgrill's Depot (and anyone allied with them, like your character) to get past the enemy and their base camp is the same idea. (Luckily, a parachute is provided when you use it, and the guy you report to assured the disorientation lasts only a minute or so.)

* Parker Brothers had a game in 1990 called ''Flying Pirates'' which featured nutty pirates using this method to board an enemy ship. (The game itself involved each player having a toy ship, where the objective was to launch the small figures onto the opponent's ship; first player to tip the opposing ship over wins.)

* 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.
