'''Note:''' Despite being called "guns", it's a misnomer, as they're usually neither actual firearms (in the sense of shooting ballistic projectiles) nor even "guns" in the EnergyWeapon sense by any stretch of the terms.

* At one point (probably not any more) the {{Punisher}} carried "mercy bullets" for use on interfering superheroes and bystanders. Spider-Man was once shot at point blank range with one; considering that even a blank can kill under circumstances like that...

** And in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', ''all'' of the Wraith's handheld weaponry are alien stun-guns. Justified in that the Wraith ''eat'' their human enemies alive by draining their LifeEnergy, so they wouldn't want any wasteful deaths.

Well, they do have heavier weaponry, but they only break that out in cases of extreme resistance or in order to teach humans a lesson (e.g. such as on Sateda).

* Weapons that render a person unconscious, or incapacitate without causing permanent injury, are rare in real life. The sad fact is that the amount of force necessary to knock a person out is almost as great as the amount of force necessary to kill a person, and it's very hard to hit hard enough to do the former without hitting ''so'' hard that you also do the latter. Additionally, a certain amount of force may work to stun one person, but would not faze another, or be enough to kill yet another.

Additionally, a certain amount of force may work to stun one person, but would not faze another, or be enough to kill yet another. And finally, even if you did manage to hit someone with the perfect amount of force to knock them out and not kill them, you would still almost by definition have given them a concussion - which is more and more being recognized as a ''very'' serious injury.

* The ''Stupefy'' spell from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' renders the target unconscious, and most victims are shown being magically revived with no side-effects. Taking multiple hits at once, however, is not advised, especially for older people - [[spoiler: Professor [=McGonagall=] needed a hospital stay after such an experience.]]

If the caster if puts enough energy behind the spell or the indivual being hit is too weak the spell can be fatal as it was when [[spoiler: Molly Weasley used it against Bellatrix Lestrange]] in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]''.

** The BloodlessCarnage in the final episode was so the producers could bring the characters back to life if the series was renewed another season, by saying that stun guns had been used.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Volcano", the Pyroans use a pistol that fires a narcotic spray into the air above their target, drifting down as a mist and [[KnockoutGas rendering them unconscious]]. However when fired directly at a person, the [[DeadlyGas concentrated dosage kills them]].

** In "Project Avalon", Blake is shot during the dramatic rescue of a RebelLeader from a detention center. His injuries are only minor however, so he has Avon examine a captured weapon. [[spoiler:The rebel leader is actually an android impersonator.]]
-->'''Avon:''' It's not standard issue. Low energy bolt discharge. This could bruise or stun, but it couldn't cause any serious injury.
