* 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.

* In ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'', ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'' lets every bow (and really every non-melee weapon) do this with [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin multishot]] mods, but two examples stand out by virtue of being able to do this innately. First up, there's the weapon summoned by Ivara's ultimate ability ability, Artemis Bow, which fires off seven arrows at once at max rank; the angle of the spread changes as a shot is charged, starting vertical and ending horizontal. For more traditional weapons, there's the Cernos [[BlingBlingBang Prime]], which fires off a horizontal spread of three arrows by default. Both can increase the number of arrows per shot even further with multishot mods, although the Artemis Bow has her pull out a special bow that fires several arrows in a spread. While needs to inherit them from the pattern is vertical by default, she can tilt the spread horizontally by charging it up.player's equipped non-shotgun primary weapon.

*** 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.

* In ''ComicBook/GrimmFairyTales: Genesis'', ComicBook/RobynHood battles a swordswoman who keeps [[ParryingBullets cutting her arrows out of the air]]. As she has two swords, she is able to cut down two arrows at once. Robyn finally defeats her by firing three arrows at her at the same time.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
