* Mana Tatsumiya, resident gunslinger of MahouSenseiNegima, changes between rifle, submachine gun and handcannons easily.
* [[{{Naruto}} Team Guy's]] Tenten is this, specifically for throwing weapons. If she can hurl it she will.
* Teana Lanster of the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' franchise, who starts off trained on MagiTek pistols in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', learns Nanoha's {{Signature|Move}} WaveMotionGun technique in ''AudioPlay/StrikersSoundStageX'' and masters it by ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'', and later gains a non-magical assault rifle that could fire [[EnergyWeapons energy]] and [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter physical]] bolts for use against the {{Mage Killer}}s of ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce''.
* ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'': Chris Yukine's Ichi-Val gear gives her AutomaticCrossbows by default, but can also produce anything from [[MacrossMissileMassacre missile packs]] to [[GatlingGood Gatling guns]] to ''[[NoKillLikeOverkill freaking ICBMs]]'', and she's very capable of kicking ass with all of them. Her DangerousForbiddenTechnique produces either a WaveMotionTuningFork {{BFG}} that looks like a combination between the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Double Buster Rifle]] and the [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Satellite Cannon]] (with a [[Anime/TurnAGundam Moonlight Butterfly]] thrown in for good measure), or an absolutely '''gigantic''' missile rack with literally hundreds of missiles.
* Gene Starwind of ''Manga/OutlawStar'' primarily wields a pistol most of the time, a short double barreled shotgun for tougher opponents, and his hand cannon sized magic Caster Gun for powerful magic using opponents. He has also used bazookas, rocket launchers, and a multi-missle launcher to various effect.

* One particular scene from StarTrekIntoDarkness features [[{{OneManArmy}} John Harrison]] curb-stomping a small army of Klingons, supported by couple of their airships. He's wielding two guns at the moment, one of them being [[{{BFG}} anti-tank weapon]] ''[[{{BFG}} roughly his own size]]''. Not only he uses them both single-handedly at once, [[{{ImprobableWeaponUser}} he even manages to use it as close-combat weapon]]. [[spoiler: A subtle hint of him actually being genetically-enhanced SuperSoldier.]] A few seconds later Harrison casually shows that he's no slouch with throwing knives either.

* In ''DancesWithWolves,'' Lt. Dunbar arms the bow-and-arrow/tomahawk-using Indians with ''Winchester rifles;'' despite having absolutely ''no'' training, they succeed in wiping out the enemy tribe in a one-sided victory.

* In ''Videogame/MechWarrior'', most [[HumongousMecha BattleMechs]] by default carry a mix of HitScan lasers, MissileLockOn, and ballistic weaponry, though players often minmax their loadouts in [[CharacterCustomization the Mechlab]] to a specific subtype. In ''[=MechWarrior Living Legends]]'', the popular Warhammer "Prime" variant carries a pair of particle projector cannons with travel time, quadruple hitscan pulse lasers, and a short-range dumbfire missile launcher, allowing it to engage at multiple ranges and unleash withering firepower at close range.

* The Soldier class in ''MakaiKingdom'' excels at using rifle and another ranged weapon. Males favor [[GatlingGood gatling guns]] while females are proficient with [[VideogameFlamethrowersSuck flamethrowers]].

** This is not to say that they don't have rifles as well. But those are usually reserved for [[MoreDakka SWAT]] [[BigDamnHeroes teams]] and situations where they're dealing with shooters with body armor.

But those are usually reserved for [[MoreDakka SWAT]] [[BigDamnHeroes teams]] and situations where they're dealing with shooters with body armor. In the aftermath of the 1997 North Hollywood shootout, it ''has' become more common for patrol cars to have a rifle stored in the trunk just in case, especially in larger cities that can afford to issue so many weapons to each officer.

* Erron Black of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' carries both a lever-action rifle and paired revolvers in his Marksman variation, though he uses them at ranges so short as to almost make the differences academic at best.

Added DiffLines:

* Ranged combat abilities in ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' function like this. Archery skill governs the use of any ranged "weaponry apparatus," which includes bows & arrows, crossbows, [[KillItWithFire firewands and flame pieces]], [[StuffBlowingUp fuel-bolt launchers]], siege weaponry, and [[{{BFG}} First-Age Essence cannons]]; Thrown skill likewise includes knives, slings, hatchets, throwing batons, javelins, darts, [[EpicFlail chain daiklaives]] and boomerangs. Specialty points can increase a character's skill to extremes with a particular weapon of choice, but a flat Archery or Thrown rating implies proficiency or excellence with everything under that umbrella.
