** Airburst rounds. Close enough to a grenade, the whole idea is to explode right after a barrier such as around a window, thus granting no cover to those hiding.
** There are also military training rounds that have the same results as paintballs but are sized like normal rounds and fired from a slightly modified but otherwise standard issue gun (same exterior, slightly changed interior; you wouldn't know the difference otherwise).

They have the same general shape, but these changes are intentionally highly visible so that negligent mistakes and harmful accidents are not as likely to occur.

* In the "Escape from Pain" episode of ''{{Trigun}}'', Vash the Stampede is hired to kill a teenage runaway, but shoots the boy with rubber bullets to fool his employer.
* ''OnePiece's'' Usopp's "Stars" would fall into this category, fired from his preferred weapon, the [[BratsWithSlingshots slingshot]]. Standard ammunition include exploding pellets (needle and fire varieties), rotten eggs, Tabasco sauce, slippery oil, glue, and toy cockroaches. After the TimeSkip, he gains seeds that form quick growing plants to terraform the battlefield or attack the enemy. Or make an emergency ''boat''.
