Trope Gun
The handheld gun can do anything, just put the effect before the word.

Any effect, from invisibility to size change, from dehydration to the ability of flight, can be conveniently placed into a gun that can be fired easily, bestowing its effect, no matter how impossible or unbelievable, on the target.

A few good examples for these are fire guns, disintegrator rays, freeze rays, growth rays, ray guns, teleportation guns...the sky's the limit.

  • Despicable Me: Gru has a freeze ray which he fires at people in order to get ahead in line.
    • He also has a disintegrator ray which Edith accidentally fires at Agnes' stuffed toy.
    • Vector has a shrink ray.
  • Mega Mind: Megamind has a gun that can turn the target into a dehydrated cube, which can be returned to normal form when put in water.
    • He also has a gun that can give the target the super powers and take them back.
  • Phineas and Ferb: Doofenshmirtz has a lot of these. Most of his "inators" are guns with strange effects, like causing the target to multiply, deflate, dance out-of-will and even had one that turned metal into broccoli.
