* 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.

** And finally the Engineer has the Rescue Ranger which fires a what looks like a staple with a battery attached. Like several video game nailguns it can tack killed foes to the wall.
* The ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]'' games have the HV series of rifles[[labelnote:*]]HV Penetrator, HV Hammerhead, and S-HV Penetrator[[/labelnote]], which fire [[AntiArmor high-speed metal spikes designed to penetrate armor, but are less effective than regular guns against unarmored targets]]. As an added bonus, when close to a surface, [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice the HV can stake enemies to said objects with the killing shot]].

* 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, like the Railway Rifle), 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 first game 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.
** ''Dissolution of Eternity'' adds Lava Nails, superheated versions of the same projectiles that deal extra damage (they ignore the armor of other players and deal double damage to monsters).

* A riveter is used for a particularly brutal murder in Ranma 1/2 fanfic, ''[[http://www.thekeep.org/~mike/imbs.html Ill Met By Starlight]]''. The usage is technically correct, being done at close range.

** In "Shut Up, Dr Phil", a VictimOfTheWeek is killed by a nail gun firing nails through a porter potty. Somewhat lampshaded when the local cops comment that they can't figure out where the nail gun had been plugged in during the attack. In this case AWizardDidIt (or rather a witch).

* Staple guns were a staple (no pun intended) of {{Wrestling/ECW}} "garbage" matches. They were "used" correctly though, pressed against the target, as opposed to being used at range. They are still used today in "deathmatch" wrestling from time to time. This was shown in ''Film/TheWrestler'' during Randy the Ram's hardcore match against the Necro Butcher. Necro, a RealLife deathmatch wrestler, is well known for doing stuff like this.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' has a slight variation in the Railway Rifle, that doesn't shoot nails as much as railroad spikes. Similar to the Penetrator in ''F.E.A.R.'', the spikes pin body parts to walls.

* The page image depicts a cover for the 1985 film ''Film/TheNailGunMassacre'', a notoriously sub-par {{slasher|Movie}} which chronicles the killing spree of a maniac who, adorned in army fatigues and a motorcycle helmet, drives around in his gold hearse, killing semi-randomly with a nail gun while cracking bad jokes.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. Invoked when Sam and Dean discover that Fate is out to get them. As YouCantFightFate, they walk down the street in broad daylight jumping at anything that's vaguely threatening. At one point a construction worker's nailgun jams and he starts [[PercussiveMaintenance hitting it]] while letting the nailgun point in their direction. The boys freeze in terror, but nothing happens.

* The ''Series/HomeImprovement'' LicensedGame gives Tim Taylor one of these as his first ranged weapon. It's a weak and somewhat unwieldy weapon thanks to its burst-style SpreadShot firing pattern, but it's all you get until Tim finds something more effective.

Of course, given it's a tool designed by ''[[TimTaylorTechnology Tim Taylor]]'', the fact that it can be a lethal weapon in the wrong hands is pretty justified.
