** In the [[TabletopGame/Pokemon]] Dragons Exalted TCG expansion, [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Magmortar_(Dragons_Exalted_21) Magmortar's card]] was redesigned outside of Japan, presumably to avoid impressing kids, looking like it just forced its way in and shot someone behind the camera. the connection to guns were reduced in the replaced art, though one of its eyes is hidden in shadow, all whilst cocking it's Arm-cannon like a gun.
