* ''Manga/YokohamaKaidashiKikou:'' Kokone has a pistol loaded with "9mm electroshock rounds." They're non-lethal, but leave a scar.

* ''VideoGame/XCom'' has stun rods, which are basically electric cattle prods used to stun aliens for capture (and stun your own soldiers when they get mind-controlled). Or stunning civilians to stop their tendency to run into mind control and become enemies.

* In ''SuperScribblenauts'', shooting something with electricity gives them the "vegetative" adjective. This is extremely effective due to the fact that it can easily put down characters that are virtually invincible.

* Most {{Pokemon}}'s lightning attacks come with a paralysis side-effect. [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Don't count on that to have an advantage if you're not using Thunder Wave, though, but do expect paralysis to occur often on your team members]]..

* ''MetroidPrime'''s electricity-based Wave Beam may disable the target if charged. Also, Samus' pistol in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' fires a bolt of what is presumably electricity which stops foes in their tracks, complete with the coursing arcs.

* ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} 3'' has Purge (hits target with lightning), which removes buffs but slows the target a great deal, as well as Storm Bolt, an electrically-charged hammer that stuns the target. Used by name without involving electricity, Thunder Clap also slows enemies by slamming the ground.

* In the ''[[Videogame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'', the Ion Disruptor acts like an [[ChainLightning arcing]] [[LightningGun lightning ray]] against ships, which does good shield damage but is effectively useless against the hull. Ion Disruptors are also the only way to capture [[SpaceWhale Spaceflies]] - zap a spacefly with the disruptor as it zips past, and it will be stunned long enough for the spaceship to scoop it up with a spacefly collector. The spacefly can then be sold to the [[ProudWarriorRace Split Dynasty]] to [[PoweredByAForsakenChild power their reactors]] or to the {{Space Pirate}}s for pretty much the same purpose.

* The advanced edition of ''VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight'' introduces weapons that both ionize the targeted systems and stun anyone nearby.



* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', the [[AntiMagicalFaction Equalist]] shock glove is a Static Stun Gun in [[PowerPalms Power Palm]] form, designed to give the Equalists' [[{{Muggle}} nonbender]] forces an edge over enemies like the armored [[ExtraOreDinary metalbending police]]. It becomes the WeaponOfChoice of Asami Sato, Team Avatar's token BadassNormal.

* In ''Film/LazerTeam'', Zach is tased not once, but three times (inadvertently on the third time), including being tased twice in a row in one scene. This is especially notable as his actor, Creator/MichaelJones, was later tased twice in a row during the Creator/RoosterTeeth Extra Life fundraising stream in which they were raising money for a children's hospital. What's more, he volunteered for this as part of a fundraising goal.

* Players could control Mumbo Jumbo as a playable character in the sequel to ''BanjoKazooie''. His weapon, the Zap Stick, shot a continuous stream of sparks that would immobilize the victim and cause them to babble incoherently until they die. It was wonderful.

Added DiffLines:

* Taser units in ''VideoGame/PAYDAYTheHeist'' can stun you with their tasers, causing you to fire you gun uncontrollably. Unless another player kills the Taser or you happen to shoot him with your uncontrolled firing, you'll get incapacitated. The sequel keeps them the same but the game also adds a stun gun as a melee weapon that can stun any enemy except the Bulldozer.
