Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' shows that pistols from the colony ships all appear to have built in laser sights.


Added DiffLines:

* In the climax of ''Film/TheRecruit'' James Clayton exits the building to find an army of CIA agents with weapons pointed at him emphasized by at least a half a dozen red dots on his chest. Then it is revealed that his mentor Walter Burke, who had been trying to kill him, is TheMole, and all of the red dots move conspicuously from James' chest to Walter's.


Added DiffLines:

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePJs'', a street gang has taken over the Hilton-Jacobs projects and all of the residents are barricaded in their apartments out of fear. Thurgood resolves to go and get help and steps out into the dark hallways. He immediately sees several red dots appear on his chest but he uses them to HIS advantage in order to dodge the gunfire of the gangsters.

* When the inmates take over the guard towers in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', the {{mook}} snipers in them use infrared lasers only visible in Detective Mode. Since the rifles were stolen from the armory of the asylum, thus meant for the guards' use, [[JustifiedTrope they're there for intimidation]]. However, if you look closely, you can see they are also wearing infrared goggles - trope cleverly averted. [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity The sequel]] also manages to use laser sights while still [[JustifiedTrope technically averting the trope.]] SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's rifle, has a bright green laser in the shape of a smiley face, but only because he follows the RuleOfFunny. When actual-assassin Deadshot snipes people, there's no warning whatsoever.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has Tau markerlights which work like this, and players commonly mock the lasgun's relative lack of strength compared to every other weapon in the game by comparing it to a laser sight.
** An actual limited edition laser pointer styled after a laser sight was recently released by Games Workshop, as a guide to the latest edition rules for shooting.
** The actual use of the tau marker light though is not to help the wielder of the marker aim, but to aid other tau units to aim more effectively, and to guide their seeker missiles to a target. It's more of a laser designator than a sight.
** Closely related games like ''Necromunda'' have 'red dot sights' as wargear that can be fitted to a weapon to make it a little easier to aim, but also give the target a small chance to spot the dot and dodge. Similar items may be available in some versions of the main 40k game itself, too.
*** RealLife contraptions dubbed "red dot sights" are either [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collimator_sight collimator]] or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reflector_sight reflex sights]] that have the reticule (the titular "red dot") visible ''only'' to the shooter, and thus in no way alerting to the target.

** The EZ Gun in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' has one of these. But then, it is ''the [[EasyModeMockery EZ Gun]]'', after all.

** The EZ Gun in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' has one of these. But then, it is ''the [[EasyModeMockery EZ Gun]]'', after all. The Scorpion machine pistol also features a laser sight, which makes it very accurate in single-shot mode.

* ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'' has Film/JamesBond spot a laser sight on a banker's Mook's chest in Bilbao. However, he can't save Bilbao, right before a sniper shoots him. Given that the guy in time.mook was pointing a gun at Bond, it makes him realize the situation is more complicated than he knows.

* The Hookshot and sometimes the Bow in ''Zelda'' games have a laser sight. Seriously. It may be just for the player's benefit, though, and not an actual feature of the item in the game universe. Interestingly, in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', the cross-hair sight is an item gained separately.

Added DiffLines:

** Enemy snipers use laser sights in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', giving the player a couple seconds to get to cover when targeted. In the sniper battle with Quiet, Miller will point out that a sniper of her skill shouldn't need a laser, so she must just be toying with you, showing that if she really wanted you dead, you'd be dead.

* ''Film/Transformers'', surprisingly enough,uses it realistically in the final battle when the US forces try to destroy Megatron's loyal underling Blackout. RealityEnsues when said Decepticon sees the targeting laser on his arm.
