* EEDocSmith probably did more to popularize ray guns than any other single author back in the Golden Age of Science Fiction.
* In one Creator/IsaacAsimov book they use "atomic ray guns" that apparently boil the blood of any organic thing hit until it explodes. In the Literature/{{Foundation}} series, they use Atom Blasters (shortened to just "blasters" in the later books, after the age of AtomPunk had passed).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'', one of Dib's new teammates, Steve, eventually creates some makeshift energy guns for the team to use against the Irkens. Though at this point, they're pretty unreliable, as they'll short out if used too much.

-->"Oh please," said Malicia. "Kinetic energy weapons are so passé. Why shoot nasty little holes in people when you can reduce them to their component molecules at the speed of light? Behold: the Mark One BEM-Blaster! It's light, sexy, and easily marketable as an action toy. The barrel has radiator fins for dumping excess heat and pleasing your girlfriend. A telescopic sight no-one bothers to use. Invisible power source violating all known laws of physics. Three settings: Melt, Vaporize, and Disintegrate. Ray focus is adjustable from fan-beam (for room-clearance and blinding photo-electronic equipment) to needle-beam (for slicing through hull plate and shooting nasty little holes in people)."

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': One of the Soldier's many, many alternate weapons is now a small handheld ray blaster called the "Righteous Bison" or a larger ray gun called the "Cow Mangler 5000".
** The Engineer and Pyro now have ray guns of their own, with the "Pomson 6000" for the former and "Phlogistinator"[[note]]Which, predictably, has terrible range[[/note]] and "Manmelter" for the latter.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'' series has a few.

''VideoGame/QuakeII'' and ''VideoGame/QuakeIV'' both have the infinite-ammo blaster pistol, a RangedEmergencyWeapon.
