* Mina Makijina of ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' fame does this in a few variations, including her super move, where she lobs practically the entire contents of her quiver into the air and then catches and fires each arrow as they come down, at a speed that seems more in tune with a machine gun.

* The Multishot and Strafe skills for the Amazon in ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} 2'' achieve this, in addition to her already improbable firing rate.
** Both avert the obstacle posed by physics: Multishot magically splits one arrow into many after firing, while a Strafing Amazon is actually firing multiple single shots in rapid succession.

* Some bow-wielding characters, such as Ina, in the [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors various]] ''[[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Warriors]]'' [[WarriorsOrochi games]] by Koei can use this as attacks, combos, and Musou attacks. The action's so fast though that it's hard to notice.

** This was changed for the Cataclysm expansion, allowing the ability to fire an arrow at every enemy within a certain range of your target. Firing a few dozen arrows at once is entirely possible during some encounters.

* The Barrage ability in ''GuildWars''.
** The [[GuildWars2 sequel]] keeps that, and also gives us a few abilities that fire a conical spread of 3-7 ingnited/icy/poisoned arrows, as well as the Warrior's Longbow auto-attack, firing two arrows at the same target for no real reason.
* Strangely enough, ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' does not have such a skill for archer. However, the top-level Archer ability called Scattershot does something similar: if the arrow hits the target, it then splits into 10 and hits the 10 nearest enemies. That is some vicious splintering.

* Tigre, the main character of ''LightNovel/MadanNoOuToVanadis'', can do this when trying to kill multiple enemies and without losing much force behind each arrow.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'', Ivara's ultimate ability Artemis Bow has her pull out a special bow that fires several arrows in a spread. While the pattern is vertical by default, she can tilt the spread horizontally by charging it up.

* Like Robin Hood: Men In Tights (and also from Mel Brooks) Robin in ''When Things Were Rotten'' asks for ALL the arrows and fires what looks like a round brace of arrows that somehow do exactly what he wants.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'' has an archery contest involving a moving target. Sour Sweet fires three arrows at once. All three hit the target and one hits the bullseye.

* An interesting case with Uryuu Ishida in {{Manga/Bleach}}. His bow doesn't actually fire regular arrows, but projectiles made of spiritual particles that he produces himself. As a result, the trope is not only justified, but taken up to eleven, since he can liberate an absurb amount of arrows in a matter of ''seconds''. During the Hueco Mundo arc he was able fire ''1,200'' arrows at a time, and after the TimeSkip he can probably do even more.
