* Nail guns in ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}: Dark Days Ahead'' are good early-game weapons since ammo is extremely common (just take apart some furniture). You can also use them to craft nail rifles, which are more powerful.

* In the episode "False Start" of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', XANA materializes some Kankrelats to the real world. One of the weapons the team uses is a modified nail gun, and it gives a [[Awesome/CodeLyoko crowning moment]] to [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Jim]].

* Your main weapon in ''VideoGame/DeadSpaceExtraction'' is also a rivet gun.
** DeadSpace2 also features the Javelin Gun, which is more of a spear gun that can pin enemies to walls. DeadSpace3's weapon-crafting system also offers lots of options for rivet guns, including rivet shotguns, rivet machine guns, and rivets that explode.
* ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'' has [[Music/NineInchNails Nine Inch Nail Guns]]. Contrary to most examples, they're some of the most accurate weapons in the game, and they're actual dedicated weapons: the super nailgun is essentially a gatling gun that spits out iron stakes. SecondaryFire switches them to ''[[KillItWithFire flaming]]'' nails.

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic'': The Scout, Sniper, and Spy all have nail guns. Oddly, the Nail Gun is not only fully automatic and 100% accurate (offset by the slow projectiles), but it looks exactly like a Sten submachine gun.

** The ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' {{D|ownloadableContent}}LC ''Lonesome Road'' adds H&H Tools nail guns, which work like silenced submachine guns. Its damage is fairly low (though it does more SubsystemDamage than normal), especially for an add-on that raises the level cap to 50, [[VendorTrash but its resale value is incredible]] (though at this point, MoneyForNothing is in full effect).

* The Hillbilly Horror Event for ''VideoGame/KillingFloor'' added Vlad the Impaler (Also known as Vlad 9000), a magazine-fed nail {{shotgun|sAreJustBetter}} for the support specialist. The nails can ricochet and hit other specimens, which makes up for the [[ShortRangeShotgun terrible range]].
** [[VideoGame/KillingFloor2 The sequel]] re-assigns the Vlad 9000 to the Berserker, in order to give the melee oriented class some ranged attack options to get rid of pesky trash mobs. The gun can be toggled between firing a small bundle of nails like a shotgun, or a single nail.

* We learn from an expositionary {{Montage}}that Film/HappyGilmore apparently got to be quite good at plinking cans with a nail gun while working construction... except when he accidentally hit his boss in the head with one. Luckily for Happy, the man was wearing his helmet and survived without serious harm. Less luckily, he failed to see the funny side and beat Happy to a pulp for it. (Offscreen, sadly for Adam Sandler's extensive {{Hatedom}}.)

* In ''Film/HappyGilmore'', Happy when working in construction was a pretty good shot with a Nail Gun, that was until his boss accidentally got shot in the head when he walked behind the cans Happy was shooting at. The boss survived and gave Happy a CurbStompBattle.
