* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_P-38_Lightning P-38 Lightning]]. Mounting ''five'' different machine guns in it's nose, this thing was More Dakka with wings. Not only were the guns themselves extremely powerful, the nose-mounting meant that accurate pilots could fire with full effect at longer ranges than with wing-mounted guns, which were callibrated to have a "convergence zone" where all the bullets would hit the same spot (if your target was closer or farther away than your convergence zone, you'd hit with less armament or not at all). [[FragileSpeedster Japanese Zero fighters]] were described as simply "disintegrating" when struck with even short bursts of P-38 weapons fire.

** Each 'sword' is in fact an artifact weapon with abilities that range from freezing the target in place to reversing causality (The attack always kills the target. Because the weapon works so that the heart is punctured, THEN the blow lands. So you can't dodge, [[YouCantFightFate as you've already been hit before you are hit]]) to tearing a hole in space-time and wiping the target (and possibly the world) out of reality.
* The side-scroller shoot-em-up ''VideoGame/JetsNGuns'' has plenty of this. The most Dakka you can get comes from a weapon that consists of seven rotary chainguns, mounted together in a circle. You can use up to five of those at the same time.

* The lack of this is a plot point in Tremors 2. Thinking they were "just" up against Graboids, Burt has a selection of large, high-powered rifles at his disposal, since the Graboids in the first film were ImmuneToBullets while underground, since it's very difficult to shoot through dirt. When the Graboids turn into much smaller, faster, and more plentiful Shriekers, Burt laments the fact that he's carrying entirely the wrong kinds of weapons to deal with the creatures, and what he did have had been used up in his first encounter with them.
-->'''Burt''': I am completely out of ammo. I don't think that's ever happened to me before.

* One of the Graboids in ''Film/{{Tremors}}'' makes the fatal decision to bust into the basement of the local gun nut. The firearms enthusiast, assisted by [[BattleCouple his wife]], summarily proceeds to unleash his entire private arsenal on the thing.

* One of the Graboids in ''Film/{{Tremors}}'' makes the fatal decision to bust into the basement of the local gun nut. The firearms enthusiast, assisted by [[BattleCouple his wife]], summarily proceeds to unleash his entire private arsenal on the thing. Starting with submachine guns and assault rifles, moving through other submachine guns and assault rifles, bolt-action rifles, dual-wielding pistols, and finally two shots from a ''massive'' elephant gun to deliver the coup-de-grace. If anyone ''might'' have enuff dakka, it's Burt Gummer
-->'''Burt''': Broke into the wrong goddamn rec room, didn't you you bastard!

** Dakka [[WhatCouldHaveBeen that could have been]]: Several WWII powers laid plans for battleships that would have gone in firepower beyond their most powerful designs, being worth of mention the [[ThoseWackyNazis German]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H-class_battleship_proposals H-class]], that would have been armed as main weaponry with up to ''[[BFG eight 20-inch guns]]'', the US [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montana-class_battleship Montana-class]], an [[CoolBoat Iowa]] UpToEleven whose punch consisted in twelve 16-inch guns, and the [[KatanasOfTheRisingSun Japanese]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_A-150_battleship Design A-150]], that would have come with six 20-inch guns.

* The Americans were a firm believer in the utility of machine guns in the lead up to UsefulNotes/WorldWar2, and few vehicles demonstrate this quite as much as the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M2_Medium_Tank M2 medium tank]]. Unusually for a tank, its main claim to fame was not the primary gun (a very modest 37mm anti-tank gun), but the machine's secondary batteries... on account of it carrying up to ''nine'' .30-06 Browning machine guns and a mind-numbing 12,250 rounds of ammunition for them. That's enough ammunition for over three minutes of uninterrupted fire from all nine guns (assuming no reloading going on). It probably says a lot that this tank's crew compliment is officially listed as one commander, one driver, and four gunners, making the M2 less of a proper tank and more like a thinly armored mobile machine gun nest, [[MadeOfExplodium with all the volatility that implies]]. Due to the changes in armored warfare going on during the war, the machine was not considered fit to send into combat in Europe and remained a training vehicle throughout the war, to the probable relief of its crews.

* ''TimeCrisis''. The second boss of ''2'' has a machine gun turret, a gatling gun and an ICBM ''as a battering ram'', while Ernesto fights using a KillSat. ''3'' has the first boss use a VTOL's armaments, a machine gun, a gatling gun, and in the Rescue Mission, a rocket launcher. Giorgio Zott switches from an assault rifle and sword combo to TWIN ROCKET LAUNCHERS. They really want you dead.

* "[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine The Way of the Warrior]]" had Deep Space Nine show off the preparations Starfleet had made for the Dominion: dozens of torpedo launchers and phaser banks pop out and engage a Klingon battle fleet, pounding them with a combination of BeamSpam and MacrossMissileMassacre.

* In the ''{{Underbelly}}: A Tale of Two Cities'' episode "Business as Usual", Ray Chuck Bennett plans to kill the Kane brothers. He does it by purchasing three machine guns and pumping a full magazine of dakka from each into Les Kane. This was too much for even veteran mobster Bob Trimbolie.
