* ''Film/TheDarkKnight'':
** The Joker acquires a sawed-off shotgun from a BadassBystander at the beginning of the film and uses it several more times throughout the film, once killing a police officer with a point-blank shot and again when trying to penetrate the armor of a police transport. The most notable instance is when he fires it into the ceiling to disrupt a party, announcing his and his men's entrance. [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace He then proceeds to wave it around like a toy in the face of several of the party-goers, who appropriately recoil with a lot of fear]]. Except for one old man, who defiantly states that he will "not be intimidated by thugs". A [[KnifeNut knife to the mouth changes his tune quickly.]]
** William Fichtner as the BadassBystander mentioned above busts out one of these in the beginning scene to combat the Joker's bank robbery, and succeeds in taking out at least one of the robbers before being shot himself.

* In the 1st and 2nd Editions of ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'' the type of shotgun a gang fighter used was merely cosmetic but 3rd Edition introduced different stat lines for the different types of shotgun. The 3rd Edition sawn-off shotgun, available to Orlock starting gangs and as a Common Item at the Campaign Trading Post, lacks the various ammo types of a regular shotgun but, due to the improvised nature of its ammo, automatically passes ammo rolls.

* Ricardo Tubbs of ''Series/MiamiVice'' made significant use of short-barreled shotguns. In the first season, he used a standard sawed-down double-barrel model; in the second, he switched out for a custom Ithaca 37 Stakeout, an already short-barreled shotgun that was [[UpToEleven cut down even shorter]], and for the third and fourth seasons he used a similarly-cut down S&W Model 3000.



** ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' goes for a less ridiculous angle by featuring the Ithaca 37 Stakeout, which is interestingly the only pump-action shotgun in the multiplayer - and thus, given how the series usually balances shotguns, means that it reaches farther and deals more damage than the otherwise-superior semi-auto SPAS-12.



* ''VideoGame/FarCry2'' features two with its "Fortunes Pack" DLC, one traditional (though heavily ornate) double-barreled shotgun for [[HandCannon the secondary slot]], and a slightly larger pump-action one with a large suppressor for the primary slot. ''VideoGame/FarCry4'' followed suit with two of these for the sidearm slot: the "D2", a sawed-down variant of the .700 Nitro double rifle converted to fire shotshells, and a Signature version of the 1887 with shortened barrel and stock, which (owing to being an 1887 in a video game) is flip-cocked like the one in ''Terminator 2'' when used from a vehicle, while carrying a body, or any other situation where only sidearms can be used.

''VideoGame/FarCry5'' features a return of the "D2", now properly based on an actual sawed-off double-barrel shotgun rather than a sawed-off double rifle with retextured ammo.

* In ''Film/RedHill'', Jimmy's preferred weapon is a sawn-off pump action shotgun. He usually announces his presence with a [[DramaticGunClick dramatic pump of the slide]]. This usually signals that carnage is about to ensue.

* The [[NerfBrand NERF N-Strike]] [=Barrel Break IX-2=] is a reverse-plunger'd double-barreled breech-action short-barreled shotgun of a dart blaster.
