* The plasma, fusion, and anti-matter projectors in ''SwordOfTheStars'' fire a large burst of energy blasts in a cone pattern. Most effective on ships up-close. There is also a rapid-firing version of the standard [[MagneticWeapons mass driver]] that fires in bursts, as well as a similar version for dumbfire missiles.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' and company get a few of these too, like the Twin Slasher, Drift Diamond, and X's charged shot with the Homing Torpedo from ''VideoGame/MegaManX1'' and the Hermes Armor in ''VideoGame/MegaManX8''. Even Zero gets in on the action with ''VideoGame/MegaManX4's'' Rakuhouha, ''VideoGame/MegaManX5's'' C-Flasher, ad in ''VideoGame/MegaManX6''; If you use the Overdrive Limit Part (which temporarily lets X spam fully-charged shots), Zero's Z-Buster shoots a five-way spread until it wears off.

X himself can do a similar thing with his Shadow Armor, shooting spreads of shurikens while hanging from the ceiling.



** ''X4's'' Aiming Laser is a variant: you first have to "lock on" enemies (up to 3) with a special crosshair, then you fire a laser to each target. Another variant is the Double Cyclone, which shoots wind orbs to your front and back.

* ''Videogame/AzureStrikerGunvolt'' has Technos, one of Gunvolt's guns that shoots 2 bullets diagonally up and down which then creep along the floor and ceiling. Viper's LimitBreak also has him shooting spreads of fireballs downwards as he floats up. Gibril in the second game can also shoot a spread of metallic projectiles. Teseo can shoot a wide array of lasers, which Copen copies as his Wide Circuit weapon.

to:

* ''Videogame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series has Doctor Doom's Photon Shot and its super variant Photon Array (aka "[[FingerGun DA FINGA LAZORS]]" as fans put it).



* In ''Videogame/MegaManMaverickHunterX'', Vile can acquire 2 vulcans that behave this way: Buckshot Dance (which has a limited max range) and Triple 7 (covers more distance but has higher energy cost). Triple 7 is also used in his special [[MiniMecha Ride Armor]]. His Trident Line cannon and Metal Crescent cutter weapons are variants; they'll always shoot at the 3 available angles of Vile's [[ShoulderCannon shoulder weapons]] - forward, 45 degrees up and 80 degrees up, one by one; you determine which angle the first shot will cover, then the cannon automatically fires a second shot at a different angle immediately after.



* ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'' has Rospark's thorns (usable only while on poles) and Model P's shurikens.

* ''Videogame/MarvelVsCapcom3'': Akuma can fire his Messatsu Gohado in 2 ways: as a spray burst of fireballs or a continuous laser. The former can do more damage than the latter if done in closer range, but its laser form's damage is more consistent.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManX1'' had the Shotgun Ice which exploded on contact, and the Chameleon Sting which started off as one projectile but split into three after half a second. ''VideoGame/MegaManX2'' had the Silk Shot, a projectile similar to the Dust Crusher. ''X3'' had the Acid Burst, which functions similarly to the Salt Water mentioned above.
* ''VideoGame/MegaManZero 2'' had the Triple Shot and Spark Shot [[PowerCopying EX Skills]], both of which split your charged shots into multiple shots upon hitting an enemy.

above, as does Ground Fire in ''X5''. Charged Ray Splasher also works like this, as did charged Spin Wheel in the game before it, and charged Lightning Web in ''X4''. Charged Ground Hunter is a variant: you shoot a large glowing drone that shoots smaller drones upward/downward as it goes each time you press Up or Down. ''X8'' has Shining Ray, which is shot upwards and explodes like fireworks.
* ''VideoGame/MegaManZero 2'' had the Triple Shot and Spark Shot [[PowerCopying EX Skills]], both of which split your charged shots into multiple shots upon hitting an enemy. The Blast Shot in the fourth game does a similar thing.
