** [[TheTurretmaster/Axton the Commando's]] skill tree guerrilla gives more dakka to his turret. Half-way down the tree gives the turret rocket launchers and the final skill, Double Up, adds a second barrel that adds slag damage. Double up's description is "100% More Turret Guns."

** In the sequels, there's the huge machine guns mounted on Zion's resident HumongousMecha and ships with turrets mounting dual machine guns. The Merovingian's mooks also used this trope unsuccessfully in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'' against Neo, who doesn't need to DodgeTheBullet anymore, so it makes no difference how many there are.

* The Trope Namer (and greatest example in all of fiction) of this trope is ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'''s Orks, who like their guns to be ''[[{{BFG}} big]]'' and ''[[BangBangBANG loud]]'' and don't really care much about [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy accuracy]]. This gives them a tremendous enthusiasm for dakka. The phrase "more dakka" itself is from a weapon upgrade in [[AllThereInTheManual an old version of Codex Orks]], "Kustom Job: More Dakka". "Enuff dakka", like [[ChainsawGood "enuff choppa"]], is the preserve of the Ork gods, but something every [[MadScientist Mekboy]] aspires to one day create.

* ''{{GURPS}}'': Ultratech has the Grav Heavy Needler, a rifle sized weapon that fires 100 explosive armor piercing rounds ''per second'' with superscience stabilizers that give it extreme accuracy and zero recoil. Its average damage causes instant death for a normal human hit by ''a single round'' from up to a mile and a half away. A group of soldiers carrying these have almost begun the approach towards beginning to have enuff dakka. * DP9's Franchise/{{Gundam}}-inspired setting ''JovianChronicles'' has multiple examples of this. Notable examples in the personal scale are the Gauss Shotgun, which fires a rapid burst to get the multi shot effect, and a squad automatic weapon [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill that is more than capable of cutting down an armored man with single shot, has among the highest rates of fire for a man portable weapon in game, carries hundreds of rounds of ammo, and tosses in an underslung grenade launcher for kicks]]. In the vehicle scale, rapid fire mass drivers are a common weapon. Even the mecha mounted sniper rifles are capable of sending out a hail of projectiles. * Classic ''{{Traveller}}''. Book 4 Mercenary introduced the VRF (Very Rapid Fire) Gauss Gun, an artillery weapon that fired at a rate of 4,000 rounds per minute. The ammunition bay held 30,000 rounds. * ''NewHorizon'' does allow for this kind of weapon.... but it's prohibitively expensive.

* The German WWII-era [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MG_42 Maschinengewehr 42]]. Capable of firing 1200 rounds of 7.92x57mm Mauser per minute, this famous machinegun has a very distinctive report that led to it acquiring the nickname of 'Hitler's Buzzsaw'. Still in use today by the Bundeswehr as the Rheinmetall MG-3 (firing 7.62x51mm NATO, but otherwise little changed and actually capable of using many of the parts from the MG 42), which can top the rate of fire at a whopping ''1800RPM''. * There exists but one example of this in nature (not counting humans of course) in the North American Termite subfamily Nasutitermitinae. They are armed with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fontanellar_gun Fontanellar Guns]], that is to say they have guns ''instead of faces'' like tiny [[Franchise/{{Mario}} snifits]]. Since they are blind as well, when enemy insects attack their nest they swarm and repeatedly fire en-masse in the direction of the threat until it is subdued. Not only are the fired secretions fast and powerful enough to usually kill an enemy on contact, but are also [[NoKillLikeOverkill sticky like glue and highly poisonous]] guaranteeing no survivors.

* According to some historians, this trope is a factor in Britain's successes against numerically superior French armies during UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars. French armies would attack in a long column of men marching straight at the enemy, which was good for maintaining morale and looking intimidating and also allowing the men to easily adopt a new formation as the situation demanded, [[StoneWall but it also meant that only the relatively few men at the front and flanks could fire]]. By contrast, British soldiers would be organised into wide lines of men, with the front rank getting down and the men behind firing over their heads, allowing every single soldier to bring his musket to bear. Also worth noting that the British controlled India which was rolling in saltpeter (which is used to make gunpowder) while the French being strangled by the Royal Navy pretty much had to beg, steal and borrow theirs from wherever they could get it, and it meant while French soldiers' first experience of live-firing was on the day in the field of battle, British soldiers could drill with live ammo ''every day''. [[{{Sharpe}} Three shots a minute in any weather is not to be trifled with]].

He's effectively firing four pistols at once.

In his hands, any gun is full-auto.

* Pretty much [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]] by the final shootout in ''Film/{{Scarface}}'': Sosa sends several dozen men to kill Tony in revenge for what he did in Paris. They enter his mansion and pump him full of lead with their guns on full auto (this film is also a great example for BottomlessMagazines). Tony himself is so coked up that it seems the probably thousands of bullets can't do him any harm while he mows down the bad guys on full auto himself, having to reload twice, but after completely unrealistic numbers of rounds. What eventually kills him is [[spoiler:[[ShotgunsAreJustBetter one shot in the back from a shotgun]]]].
