* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' has the Particle Projection Cannon (PPC) which ionizes a path to fire what is effectively a lightning blast against [[HumongousMecha battlemechs]]. It, and all its derivatives, are considered the heavy tier of the energy weapons category of armaments. Tech 2 and 3 rules introduce many flavors of PPC such as the snub-nosed PPC which is easier to aim but has heavy accuracy penalties, make it effectively a SawedOffShotgun.

Added DiffLines:

* Vikavolt, a [[BigCreepyCrawlies Bug]] and [[ShockAndAwe Electric]] Franchise/{{Pokemon}} that was introduced in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' is stag beetle that looks and acts like a living lightning gun. It has reminded people of [[VideoGame/{{Gradius}} Vic Viper]].

Added DiffLines:

* VideoGame/{{Destiny}} has an entire subset of weapons infused with Arc energy in general, but there are a few standouts:
** The Thunderlord, a Year 1 exotic machine gun with sparks coursing up and down its length, creates electric explosions and increases in fire rate the longer the trigger's held.
** The Zhalo Supercell, an exotic auto rifle introduced in Year 2, is essentially a bright blue-green AK-47 with the ability to electrocute small groups of enemies with ChainLightning, as well as an additional perk that gives it regenerating ammo every time the player scores a double kill. It is ''exactly'' as awesome as one would expect.

* In Victor Appleton's ''TomSwift and his Electric Rifle'', Tom Swift creates a weapon that fires a concentrated charge of electricity like a bullet. The charge could pass through any material: it took effect at a pre-set range from the rifle.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' has the Blaster (the Blast Gun in the PS1 translation). It fired a random thunder-elemental spell when cast (either the first tier, second tier, or third tier), and was regularly affected by the rules of spellcasting in that higher Faith for both sides means more damage, though it functions independently of attack stats like regular guns.

* In the 2005 film version of ''Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds'', the Tripods use electron particle beam weaponry.
* The Film/{{Ghostbusters}} use a very specialized version of this trope for their Proton Packs (guns that fire very specific charged particles to weaken and trap ghosts).
