* '''Deconstructed''': The gun doesn't quite cover all of the heroes' needs when it's used.
** Alternately, Bob figures out the medallion he bought at the beginning of the episode is the key to victory...pity it seemed so insignificant he left it in its glass case before heading out to face the BigBad.
* '''Reconstructed''': The gun is an ornament, when it is grabbed ten minutes into the episode by the hero, who is shocked to find it doesn't fire. He uses the replica as a club to kill the villain, then bar the door as he escapes through the back.
** Bob manages to use his [[{{Badass}} badassery]] to defeat the BigBad anyway.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob's father's pendant fires the beam, then it appears that it was just Bob getting an EleventhHourSuperpower in a DieOrFly moment. But the pendant was still important in that thinking of his father gave Bob the HeroicResolve to manifest the power.
