* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' features Ea, Gilgamesh´s [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning drill]][[CoolSword sword]] and the single most powerful weapon in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}}, which comes from it´s ability to rotate so fast that it literally breaks the world around it apart, destroying anything in the vague direction it´s pointed at, including [[EarthShatteringKaboom the world itself if it´s given enough time to charge]]. Even at an absolutely minimum of it´s power it can easily overpower Saber´s Excalibur, [[TheWorfEffect the supposedly strongest sword]]. On top of all that,[[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090730170003/typemoon/images/a/af/W._Ea.jpg it looks fucking awesome.]]

* The [[https://youtu.be/A7t67SAjqUs?t=1h15m11s Russian Overkill]] mod for ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} II'' has giving you these as it's modus operandi. Also counts as AwesomeYetImpractical, because saying some of these are portable nuke launchers, and that you can easily kill youself with them without God Mode on, is, in no way, hyperbole.

* ''Literature/WizardsWarriorsAndYou'', in this series by R.L. Stine, among the weapons the titular Warrior can choose, one weapon is the Triple Crossbow. The Triple Crossbow is shaped like an upside down Mercedes symbol with 2 extra bolt slots pointing about 40 degrees away from the centre and can shoot bolts in 3 different directions as a mob control weapon. It should be an impractical weapon but is actually one of the best choices for the Warrior.

* An UpToEleven example: the Farsight from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark.'' OneHitKill, unlimited penetration and equipped with a scope that can ''see through walls and doors and automatically track people.'' You literally just have to sit back and pull the trigger.

OneHitKill, unlimited penetration and equipped with a scope that can ''see through walls and doors and automatically track people.'' You literally just have to sit back and pull the trigger. The only downside is that the firing rate is very slow.



** Let's not forget the [[MorphWeapon laptop gun]], itself a 50 shot assault rifle. But you can also throw it at a nearby wall, where it'll set up as a [[SentryGun sentry turret]] and kill your enemies for you.
