* A relative of the above FASA property, the tabletop ''MechWarrior'' RPG features a variety of stun weapons. [[InstantSedation Chemical]], [[StaticStunGun electrical]], and [[SonicStunner sonic]] stun weapons are available as ranged weapons, though stun batons are also available. An insidious item known as the neural whip could also technically be used to stun victims, but prolonged use could result in crippling injuries and permanent loss of attribute points.

* Various paralysis and [[InstantSedation narcosis-inducing]] weapons are in relatively common use in the ''Literature/PerryRhodan'' universe, though they tend not to penetrate [[DeflectorShields force fields]] very well -- if your target has one of those active, you usually need to get rid of it first. As in the Vorkosigan Saga example above, the problem with using ''only'' StunGuns in combat comes up in one issue; a carefully placed blaster shot puts the opposition back on their guard quickly enough in this particular case.

**Leland Owlsley has a stun gun that he drags out of storage once the man in the mask starts causing problems for Hell's Kitchen organized crime.

In the season 1 finale, Leland tries to use it on Wilson Fisk, [[NoSell who shrugs it off]] and kills him by throwing him down a elevator shaft.

* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', the first resort against Chrysalis consists of tranquiliser rifles, filled what seem to be absurdly lethal amounts of sedative (well, to anyone and any''thing'' but the hardy changeling herself).

** ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy'', where Thrawn's forces are out to capture a pregnant Leia, reveals that they can't just stun her, since it sometimes causes miscarriages. In the Literature/XWingSeries Corran Horn is stunned and is conscious but paralyzed until it wears off, unhappily remembering that this happens to him sometimes when he gets stunned. [[OutboundFlight Survivor's Quest]] has the [[BadassCrew Aurek Seven]] stormtroopers checking someone they'd just stunned for heart palpitations.
