** Explained as the charges containing a core of <bullet type> atoms in a suspended plasma state, which the blasters extract and form into a bolt which is then fired, while railguns simply fire the entire bullet.

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'': Proton packs, which are "positron colliders" (or sometimes "unlicensed nuclear accelerators") that shoot particles from "neutrona wands".
* From the checklist Alex ran down in ''TheLastStarfighter'', Gunstars are apparently armed with a particle beam and proton bolts.
** In the novelization, Grig states the real names involve science too advanced to translate, so he uses the [[ShowWithinAShow game]] terms for the sake of convenience.

Often, if the writers bother with [[AllThereInTheManual background material]] they will list such weapons as having yields in the kilo-gigaton range, making this a case of NuclearWeaponsTaboo.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has the Positron Rifle.[[note]]Note that in anything resembling atmosphere, a rifle that fired positrons would be a shoulder-mounted grenade. Further note that we did not say grenade LAUNCHER. The name may instead imply that it uses positrons internally, to (for example) generate gamma radiation.[[/note]]

Further note that we did not say grenade LAUNCHER. Any positrons from such a "rifle" would begin explosively annihilating the electrons of the air as soon as they're released from whatever is containing them. The name may instead imply that it uses positrons internally, to (for example) generate gamma radiation.[[/note]]

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' gave us "pulsar cannons." While pulsars aren't a subatomic particle, they're a type of neutron star, which does have "neutron" in its name. (The prospect of somebody shooting neutron stars at you is [[MadeOfExplodium also pretty frightening]].) The reimagined version stuck with good old atom bombs.
