* From ''VideoGame/TheBattleCats'', we have Nerd Cat. Although he has low health and an ArbitraryMinimumRange, he has the longest range of all Cats in the entire game! His evolved form, [[HollywoodHacking Hacker Cat]], gains an [[OneHitPolykill Area Attack]], making him an even straighter example.

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games frequently feature characters who can use ranged weapons (such as bows), letting them stay in the back row and deal the same damage as in front row.

From the back row, they ''take'' less physical damage, which is important because, fitting this trope, [[GlassCannon they typically have lower defenses and hit points than the melee weapon party members]].

*** SSB4 DLC grants us [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates]] Corrin, who is practically to this game what Dhalsim is to Street Fighter. While he does have a sword, most of his damage will come from his [[LovecraftianSuperpower Dragon Fang]] attacks, especially if they hit at the tip.

* Coco Adel of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is a svelte fashionista girl who fights with a huge minigun which also folds up into her handbag when she's not using it. With her weapon, Coco can casually shred whole ranks of Grimm and blast giant varieties of Grimm which earlier on gave the eponymous team heroines of the story an arduous fight. However, if someone can get close enough to her, her huge gun turns from a death-dealer into a liability: in her [[CurbStompBattle brief]] battle against the villainous [[LightningBruiser Mercury Black]] and [[StealthExpert Emerald Sustrai]], Mercury made a fool of her and danced around her and her huge StoneWall teammate, and Emerald was able to isolate Coco and annihilate her [[CriticalHit with a single backstab]].

* This is Peacock's specialty fighting style in ''{{Skullgirls}}''. Most of Peacock's special attacks are projectiles of some kind, such as cannonballs, bullets, walking bombs, [[ItMakesSenseInContext car/plane-riding bombs]], and lasers. On the other hand, she's not very good at mixing up the opponent up close...

* The entire Tau race in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have this as their hat, to the point where they employ another race entirely as mercenaries to deal with hand to hand combat.

Only the Imperial Guard and the Orks can put out more shots per turn than the Tau, but the Tau can pump out more powerful shots, and more accurately too, thanks to [[LaserSight Markerlights]].

* Lady in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4: Special Edition'' has this as her preferred fighting style after being PromotedToPlayable. It's also her primary fighting style in the cinemas of ''Devil May Cry 3''. Although this is justified - the other playable characters are [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-Demon]] so can take much more punishment than her.
