* The ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' Groundside Resistance Pack [=DLC=] includes, among others, the [[GameBreaker N7 Typhoon]] light machine gun. This {{BFG}} is not only obscenely powerful and comes with several goodies like in-built penetration, increased damage resistance while aiming and the largest clip size out of any weapon in the game - it's also the only infantry weapon in the entire trilogy to invoke this trope. The justification seems to be the same as the heavy machine guns' mentioned above, given how the spent "casings" look an awful lot like many, many, [[RuleOfThree many]] tiny thermal clips. The Typhoon still ejects a glowing standard heat sink during reloading, though. And for some reason, the casing shower effect disappears the moment the shooter activates a special ammo type.
* ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' features this extensively. Every single ballistic weapon visually ejects casings appropriate to the caliber it is chambered for. These casings then drop to the ground, bounce and roll physically correct and make metallic noises while they're at it. Although the game has a rather low limit of how many casings it displays and how long they linger, mods are available to extend these numbers almost indefinitely. Nothing like mowing down a hostile outpost from an elevated position with a [[GatlingGood minigun]] and finding yourself ankle-deep in a shiny brass carpet sparkling in the light of the sunset. And they say romance is dead.

* Simultaneously averted and played straight with Russian machine guns, like Maxim M1910 (a Russian licensed variant) and its successor, the PK\PKM general purpose machine gun. On one hand, both of them use non-disintegrating belts (no small, snaggy links falling out; old belts were cloth, modern are metallic, come in 50-round strips and are multiple-use). On the other hand, PKM ejects its brass with unusual gusto, capable of injuring unprotected skin, and hurls the cases to the left - an unusual direction for Western users.

This is because PK* action is basically an inverted AK writ large, so while AK has its ejection port, as usually, on the right side, inverting it effectively moves the port to the left.

* ''Dark Blue World'' (2001). Casings are seen ejected from the Spitfires during the mid-air battles. According to the DVDCommentary the director made a point of including this, having owned toy Spitfires as a boy and noting the ejector ports.

* Seen in ''Film/SuicideSquad'' when the SEAL team opens up with automatic weapons on the advancing horde of zombies. There is a close-up on the spent casings raining down around their feet.

One way to emphasize MoreDakka, or at least how powerful a weapon is, is showing all the bullet casings being ejected out of that gun. Expect this to be [[NoisyGuns noisy]].

** Australian veterans of the Vietnam war share a favourite complaint; 'supporting' fire from American UH-1B 'Huey' gunships frequently made strafing runs from whatever direction was convenient, oblivious to friendly infantry on the ground receiving literal showers of hot brass casings from the twin M134 miniguns. The furious rate of fire from these weapons gave little time for the chamber to cool between shots, meaning the casings were hot enough to cause burn injuries even after falling from the sky.

** ''Film/TheMatrix'': the most obvious example is when Neo saves Morpheus or Morpheus, complete with [[GatlingGood Gatling Goodness]], but almost any other time they use guns.guns you can expect some showcasing of spent, um, casings.

* Naval cannons would count, since some videos of them show shells after shells piled on the deck while firing salvos, except these are large cannons that fire more or less, around 100mm shells, some examples include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqWhOQw7_TY this]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_W1TWS0KTc this]].
