* While [[ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy the toy version]] [[MerchandiseDriven he's based on]] had a vertically-oriented two-tube missile launcher, in the acclaimed AllCGICartoon version of ''BeastWars'', Optimus Primal carries a retractable double-barreled shotgun [[ArmCannon inside his left arm]].

Added DiffLines:

* Double-barreled shotguns were so absurdly powerful in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' that they had to be [[GameBreaker removed from the game]].

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in ''ComicBook/ButtonMan'': Harry notes that in the right situation, a shotgun is a very useful and effective weapon... but neither trying to hit a target close enough to punch you nor a target 600 yards away and running are the right situation for a full-length shotty.

** Gun laws of nearly all countries are and historically have been far more lax in regards to shotguns than rifled guns. Even in the [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet Union]], until [[TheSeventies 1976]] there were practically no restrictions or regulations on shotguns for hunting purposes, beside the cost of the gun ([[PerpetualPoverty which meant a barely affordable wad of cash for most people]]). For this reason, there is far more probable for someone to own a shotgun instead of rifle, and to be ''trained'' in its use.

Added DiffLines:

* Resistance 2 also applies this, since the player can sometimes be ambushed by the Chameleon, which attacks with razor-sharp claws at close quarters. A single shotgun blast can demolish these enemies, which can even be invisible.

* The ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series grants a shotgun-esque blunderbuss to the protagonist of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'''s DLC: ''Freedom Cry''. Though it only carries a single shot per reload, and can spare some lives [[ShortRangeShotgun after a certain range]], ''quite a few'' men will be slain with a single blast if they get within its cone of death. In fact one of the achievements is killing 5 people with one shot.
