* The manga series ''{{Blame}}'' features the ''Gravitational Beam Emitter'', a wave motion '''''pistol'''''. Its power is so great that if it were to be used in a regular atmospheric environment (like, you know, ''ours''...), it would have irreversible environmental side effects. [[InformedAbility Or so]] [[WordOfGod we've been told...]] The GBE is considered a Class 9 weapon of mass destruction in Blame and is VERY rare to to come across. To give you an idea, at lowest setting, it can shoot a beam 70 km long. Anything in this path is obliterated. At maximum firepower...um...you'd have to see it for yourself.

Added namespaces.
* Spinal mount particle accelerators and meson guns in ''{{Traveller}}''. * Maulers in ''StarFleetBattles'', a ship built around a Wave Motion Gun and its associated power systems. Very effective in the hands of a skilled player with a grasp of the right tactics to employ them to their best, [[DifficultButAwesome less so otherwise]].

* Dream Pod 9's ''JovianChronicles'' has them in the form of the Valiant class patrol carriers. These ships, explicitly designed for groups of [=PCs=] in the vein of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam White Base]] and [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross The Macross]], packs a high powered laser in a spinal mount easily capable of outright destroying the heaviest capital ships in one shot. Unsurprisingly, it is often referred to the [[FanNickname Spinal Laser of Doom]]. * You can build your own in ''{{Mekton}} Zeta''. Mega-Beam plus Charging Time plus Lots Of Kills Worth Of Damage...of course, it'll weigh about seven tons, take up all the space in both your arms, and/or cost a fortune in space efficiency, but just think what it'll do to whatever you point it at.

** The original Macross Cannon provides the impetus of the plot: the [[NeglectfulPrecursors Supervision Army]] gunship that later became the Macross had been rigged to fire upon Zentradi reconnaissance ships, which it did, prompting the arrival of a full combat fleet. Also, activation of the ship's [[TransportersAndTeleporters Fold Engines]] left the Cannon bereft of power conduits for a while, prompting the [[TransformingMecha iconic transformation]] (which allowed the Cannon to reconnect with its power source due to the new configuration.)

* Whenever he's featured in a {{Capcom}} fighter, Comicbook/IronMan has the Proton Cannon, a huge, shoulder-mounted weapon that shoots out a massive repulsor stream. ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' adds the possibility to fire the beam at an angle upwards.

** The last mission of the expansion campaign features the ''[[MeaningfulName Eclipse]]'' Super Star Destroyer, fitted with a weaker version of the Death Star's planet-busting beam. It can OneHitKill ''any'' ship and is very useful, since you have to fight both TheEmpire and the [[LaResistance Rebel]] fleets. Conveniently, the beam stops working just as another SSD jumps into the fray, so you have to destroy it by conventional means. The StarWarsExpandedUniverse novels indicate that the ''Eclipse'' could easily take on a large New Republic fleet on its own and win.
