** Note that this doesn't apply to the advanced weapons you can get: the laser pistol in the first game is more accurate than a basic rifle and almost as powerful, and the plasma pistol is more accurate and more powerful than the laser rifle. In the second game, the Gauss pistol has better ammo capacity and damage than the Jet Harpoon, plus the addition of auto fire, and the Sonic Pistol, while it loses the auto-fire capability, does almost as much damage as the ''Torpedo Launcher'', and is only beaten for accuracy by the Sonic Blasta-Rifle[[note]]The Sonic Cannon has slightly worse inherent accuracy and utility than the Blasta-Rifle due to several factors[[/note].

** The pistol in [[VideoGame/XCOMUFODefense the first game]] is not any better: with worse accuracy than the rifle and less than half the power, the only redeeming quality the pistol has is that you can put it in your belt inventory. The fact that you could replace that pistol with a couple of grenades for about the same cost...

*The Ladies Gun, a Remington 1886 Derringer, is the weakest gun in the ''VideoGame/CallOfJuarez'' series. It has poor range and does barely any damage.

* In ''Film/MenInBlack'', the "noisy cricket" is the size of a small, cheap water pistol, and it's dismissed as "completely useless." It blows a hole through a completely sealed door, and sends you [[BlownAcrossTheRoom flying the opposite direction]] almost as fast. The funny thing is that it functionally ''is'' near-useless, but for the exact opposite reason of what it looks like it would be. [[AllThereInTheManual Background materials]] suggest that the Noisy Cricket's standard function is significantly toned down from what is seen; it's meant to be a [[HiddenWeapons holdout gun]]. It's given in an overpowered state to rookie agents as an object lesson... or a form of hazing. In ''Film/MenInBlackII'', Agent K [[spoiler: in his neuralized state]] is given one that does not have the comical level of overcharging, and in [[WesternAnimation/MenInBlack the animated series]] J receives a silencer for his (which is much longer than the actual gun it's screwed to) that reduces the power of each shot but also allows him to fire it without bowling himself over.

* ''Plan 7 of 9 from Outer Space''. Captain Proton isn't impressed when [[ArmsDealer Demonica]] offers him the 0.09mm Nano-Uzi, a weapon so small he can barely see it.
-->"What's that for?" asked Proton. "Killing ants before they [[Film/{{Them}} mutate to man-eating size]]?"
-->"Laugh if you will," said Demonica, "but each round contains one twentieth of a gram of Anti-Matter giving a two-kilotonne yield. We take no responsibility for what might happen should you fire at any target closer than three kilometers."

* ''[[Literature/HonorHarrington Torch of Freedom]]'': The Kettridge Model A-3 is seen as one of these. When a mercenary asks a crime boss to sell him one, the boss wonders if the merc is really good enough to get kill-shots out of a Kettridge, or if he's a fake who doesn't want to carry a "man-sized gun". (The merc in question is a disguised Victor Cachat, and Option One is the correct answer.)

* In the first of the Creator/TomClancy's ''NetForce'' books, a female assassin carries around a .22 pistol, favoring its discretion and concealability. She then proceeds to work around the "stopping power" issue by shooting her target in the [[EyeScream eye]].
