* When doing cannon-related myths, the ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' crew borrows a cannon that the owner has named "Old Moses", as it "speaks with a great voice and lays down the Law". This is a common thing to do with cannons - one preacher-turned-artilleryman during the Civil War named four guns "Matthew", "Mark", "Luke" and "John" for the same reason. The Mythbusters themselves engage this trope when they acquire a car (for doing car myths, naturally) and name it "Earl," named just because it seemed like an appropriate name for a large, black Cadillac.
** Jamie Hyneman of ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' constructed a two-handled revolver in order to test BlastingItOutOfTheirHands. He named it '''Newton's Law'''.
