* In an episode of ''Series/TheFlash1990'', an assassin uses a laser-equipped rifle to aim at a target. The target's girlfriend tries to brush off the red-colored "smudge" on his shirt and takes the bullet instead.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' is possibly the TropeMaker of the laser sight mechanic in video games. Several weapons in the game use a laser sight to show the direction in which the gun is shooting.

* An accessory for [[NerfBrand NERF blasters]], though it's more like a red light with a focus. The Nite-Finder and the Firestrike has one built in. They're quite impractical due to the fact that they're hard to see unless the light is low enough and that it will grow and fade out the farther away you are (this is, of course, due to the fact that putting a real laser on the toy would make it quite dangerous due to the risk of eye damage, and the dangers of causing people to think that a real gun was being pointed at them- see below). However, a few zip ties and a laser pointer later...

* ''Film/GreatWhiteHype'' has Jamie Foxx and a couple friends burst in on Samuel L. Jackson and his entourage with guns drawn on them. Foxx starts making loud demands which very quickly become toned down and then completely backtracked when Jackson's security detail (about 10 guys) walk in with handguns all equipped with lasers. Said lasers migrate from Foxx's chest to his groin to emphasis how badly he screwed up.



* ''Film/ThePeacemaker'' during the hijacking of the nuclear train a team of assassins take a position on one side of a train car to gun down at least a dozen sleeping soldiers. It's dark enough that the only light in the car are the lasers and the assassins are wearing night vision goggles. The troops suddenly wake up and the bright red dots are their only indication of what's about to happen.
* ''Film/ScarredCity'' the police use laser-equipped rifles as part of an initiation ceremony for a new member of the team. They chain him to a chair and shoot hundreds of rounds around him. His restraints are then shot off with the laser-aimed bullet. Later that cop enlists the help of a prostitute to take down a mobster and the bad cops by revealing she has one of these rifles. When the cop dismisses her abilities, she lampshades the trope by reminding them "Where the red dot aims, the bullet goes. Kinda takes all the skill out of shooting." She was close enough that real-world ballistics wouldn't have affected her shot that badly.

Added DiffLines:

** A Russian mobster has a sniper highlight Nate with a laser sight in "The Carnival Job", probably more for the intimidation factor than actual aiming. However, Nate, unfazed, pulls a silent ThreeTwoOne, counting down on his fingers, and the red dot shifts to the mobster, as Parker had intercepted and neutralized the sniper.

* The Morph Gun in the latter part of the ''JakAndDaxter'' series has a laser sight. Since the game has no first- or third-person aiming modes, it's good to have something to let you know where your shots are going.

* Played with by Teana in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', where she uses a LaserSight purely as a distraction from one of her [[DoppelgangerSpin illusions]] while the real her sneaks up on her target. Snipers in the world of Nanoha generally avoid this trope.

** The US Navy uses green laser dazzlers not only for blinding the crews of incoming small boats, but also for fire control. At night, the officer in charge of the crew-served weapon mounts can direct the sailor with the dazzler laser to point it at a particular incoming small boat, showing the gunners which target they should be shooting at and providing a convenient point of aim.



* ''Laser-guided'' missiles are directed to their targets by troops 'painting' the intended destination with a high-powered laser designator.

* In ''{{Pikmin}} 2'', a half-robot, half-spider monstrosity known as the Man-At-Legs has a giant laser sight emerge from its underbelly and throw a completely visible bright red laser beam to target any threats, whch it then proceeds to pulp down with what can only be described as ''[[MoreDakka a rapid-fire autocannon]]''.
