* Weapons called "Stun Rods" appear in the hands of late-game mooks in''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5''. It's a bit of a misnomer, though: in 4 they do about the same amount of damage as being shot in the face with a [[GatlingGood Gatling Gun]], and in 5 they instantly put you into [[ControlledHelplessness Dying status]]. You can also buy a Stun Rod in 5 and use it yourself; it is extremely powerful and works wonders for crowd control and best of all [[AwesomeYetPractical it doesn't use any ammo.]]

* Blasters in ''StrontiumDog'' have a 'stun' setting in order to avoid harming civilians. In the "Bitch" story, Johnny ordered Red to keep her blaster set to 'stun' at all times as he was sympathetic to the Kaiak-K.

* ''TheSlayers'': Elmekia Lance is a weaked-down [[ReviveKillsZombie holy blast]] useful against things like demons and zombies. For what has been seen of its (usually accidental) use on humans, they tend to be knocked out cold. It's safe to assume the Ra Tilt does something similar, on a grander scale.

** Ronon's pistol also has various power settings, which at the lower end seem to act in a similar manner. Ronon [[OneManArmy being Ronon]] however, often has to be reminded to take it off of the [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill highest kill setting]].

** A simulant incapacitates the crew with a laser weapon for a period of three weeks. Somehow, this works on all four of them, considering two are flesh and blood, one is a droid and the other is a hologram.

* Creator/JMichaelStraczynski explicitly forbid these from ''Series/BabylonFive'': "Stun settings are for people who can't commit." If you're fighting someone, either hit him or JustShootHim - if you're not, ''talk to him''.

** Generally speaking, if Babylon 5's security personnel needed to take someone alive, they used old-fashioned batons or grappled them directly. The Minbari did have one or two high-tech methods of rendering someone unconcious, but even they typically would just club someone with a fighting staff.

*** Apparently confirmed in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', where it's revealed that Andorians, due to their higher metabolic rate are much more susceptible to phaser fire than humans. Even a graze from anything set above stun is potentially lethal to them, which a human could simply shrug off with some minor burns.

Added DiffLines:
* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' most Ray guns have a stun setting built in, but there are also spasm rods, odd pronged batons that produce a shimmering sphere that can be used to both stun people in melee and to deflect Ray fire.
