Added DiffLines:

* The Network Tap from ''James Bond VideoGame/EverythingOrNothing''. In practice, it's more of an EleventhHourSuperpower: Q has to very hurriedly send it into the field (read: Moscow) and you only get to use it in two out of the last four levels.
* A variation without a gun: Goldeneye's EM Hack in ''GoldeneyeRogueAgent'', which turns enemy turrets and other armaments over to your side.

* Euclid's C-Finder in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' looks like a [[{{Zeerust}} cartoony ray-gun]], but it's linked to a solar-powered KillSat called [[WaveMotionGun ARCHIMEDES II]]. It's in the possession of a young child when the game starts Thankfully, ARCHIMEDES II is unpowered when the game starts, considering the young child thinks Euclid's C-Finder is what it looks like (a toy) and so has pulled the trigger while playing with his friends. The player can also come into possession of it before knowing what it is, and it will [[LethalJokeItem seem entirely useless until the satellite is brought online]].
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' gives the player a pointlessly huge laser designator to use against it's largest boss. It's about the size of a rocket launcher. Chris then re-uses it in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' as one of his [[LimitBreak Hyper Combos]].
