* ''Guinan'' of all beings in ''StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' is one. She's a better Trick Shot than Worf on the phaser range, and when a BarBrawl breaks out she's the first to pull out a gun almost as big as she is.

* There's a Gunslinger [=O.C.C.=], in the ''{{Rifts}}'' megaverse. Specifically, they can be any combination of Trick Shot, The Woo, or QuickDraw. In-game fluff describes them as assassins, hitmen, and mercenaries who specialize in close combat and dual-wielding pisols. They also have a psychic equivalent, the Psi-Slinger.

* The ''IronKingdoms'' gun mage is a gunslinger with magic; a sorcerer who uses his or her specially made rune-engraved firearm (typically pistol/s, but a few can use rifles) as a focus for spellcasting. They can imbue their bullets with spells, allowing them to pull off all sorts of trick shots and effects, from shooting through walls (Trick Shot) to creating a localised lightning storm where the shot hits (Vaporizer). They exist as Cygnaran and Mercenary models in the wargame and as a playable class in the RPG. The most famous signature character gun mage, Allister Caine, is also adept at teleportation magic, making him a capable Woo and QuickDraw as well.
* The term "Swordsman School" is used rather loosely in ''SeventhSea'' and includes many schools based around weapons other than swords. Most relevant to this trope are the Montaigne Rois et Reines school that specializes in the use of a musket with a fixed bayonet, and the Vendel Rasmussen school, focused on pistols. Rasmussen even has a swordsman knack called "Trick Shot." These being 17th century firearms, both schools emphasize training far beyond the norm, allowing unusual aim, effective range, and reload speed. A master of Rasmussen can reload a pistol in a single action, while a character without the Reload Swordsman Knack would take several entire turns (with 2-5 actions per turn) to do the same.

* DcComics GoldenAge character Vigilante is one if the earliest examples of this trope in comics. True to his roots as a classic gunslinger, he is naturally a professional Trick Shot and Quick Draw expert.

* The AmnesiacHero of VideoGame/CaveStory, "Mister Traveler", is a gunslinger of the [[MoreDakka Vaporizer]] variety. He carries a [[HyperspaceArsenal huge variety]] of highly improbable [[EvolvingWeapon evolving guns]] and carries enough ammunition to obliterate a [[TankGoodness super-tank]] supported by various mooks. He has a sword too, but it exclusively fires [[SwordBeam sword beams.]]

* In D20Modern, there is an actual advanced class called Gunslinger. Unlike most fiction gunslingers, his abilities are mostly BoringButPractical: Getting untyped bonuses to attack rolls (Trick Shot), increased benefits from [[TakeCover cover]]. He can also shoot more often than other characters (Vaporizer), and is such a good shot that he reduces cover bonuses his enemies gain against him (Trick Shot).

* From ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'', we have Percy, resident GadgeteerGenius and a long-range fighter par excellence. In this case, the original campaign started in ''TabletopGame/Pathfinder'', which had the class for gunslingers, but the transfer to 5th Edition turned his class into an archetype for the Fighter class.

* Jason McCullough from ''Film/SupportYourLocalSheriff'' is both a QuickDraw and a TheTrickShot (shoot a bullet through the hole in a washer). He's also GenreSavvy enough to realize that getting a reputation as such is a good way to get killed.
