** Also, plasma weaponry with the "Gets Hot!" special rule. In the 41st Millennium, plasma weapons are LostTechnology - poorly understood, rare, very hard to replicate and more often than not hundreds of years old and maintained by people who don't have a damn clue how it works. On a bad roll, the unreliable electromagnetic field generators safely housing the plasma may fail causing several-thousand degrees kelvin fluid to leak out all over the forearms of the unfortunate sap holding the gun, or a capacitor might break and send gas of the same temperature into his throat and lungs. In older editions, the weapon would even rupture with lethal results for the user and everyone standing near him. Plasma weapons however are capable of giving even Terminator Space Marines a bad day when they do work properly, and it's not like you'll roll a 1 ''every'' turn, right?

* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'''s {{Unobtainium}}, Energized Protodermis either transforms all that comes into contact with it into [[BecauseDestinySaysSo whatever its destiny calls for]], or simply destroys it. This goes for everything, from objects to living beings. Then, there are the Reconstitute at Random Kanoka Disks, which transform their target into who-knows-what, [[TeleportersAndTransporters Teleportation disks]], which teleport the targets to random locations, and the Mask of Summoning, which summons random creatures whom the mask's user unfortunately has no control over.

** Other colors can have unpredictable effects too. For example, a blue/green card literally named [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=366248 Unexpected Results]] which can cast the top card of your deck for free, but forces you to shuffle it first, making it nearly impossible to manipulate the randomness.

* The Funky Bomb in ''VideoGame/ScorchedEarth'' is a very randomised weapon. When it hits, it fires out shots of its own in random directions. It might take out five opponents, it might only take out the one it landed near, it might do nothing, or if you're exceptionally unlucky, it might even end up taking you out.

* There are a ''lot'' of cards in ''VideoGame/{{Hearthstone}}'' with extremely unpredictable random effects. Many of them generally benefit the user, such as gaining a cheaper copy of almost ''any'' minion [[http://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Unstable_Portal (Unstable Portal)]] or any spell [[http://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Nexus-Champion_Saraad (Nexus-Champion Saraad)]] in the entire game[[note]]These ARE limited to collectable cards i.e not ones that are in turn created by other cards such a Ysera[[/note]]. More extreme examples can end up backfiring on the user, such as [[http://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Gelbin_Mekkatorque Gelbin Mekkatorque]], who summons a random invention that either do positive or negative things to ''any'' character, or [[https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Yogg-Saron,_Hope%27s_End Yogg-Saron]], who casts a '''completely random on a completely random target''' for each spell the player had used previously. There's a sizeable BrokenBase over whether this is fun or utterly infuriating.
