'''Basic Trope''': Weaponized bees.
* '''Straight''':
** Bob has a gun that shoots deadly bees.
** Bob has swarms of bees following him everywhere and attacking his enemies at his command.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Bob's bee-shooting gun is ''also'' made of bees.
** Alternatively, it's a [[{{BFG}} "Bee FG]]"
* '''Downplayed''': Bob tricks his enemy into standing under a wasps' nest.
* '''Justified''':
** Bob comes from a planet where the local intelligent humanoids developed a connection with bees similar to what we humans made with dogs.
* '''Inverted''':
** Bees with guns.
** A weapon that kills only bees.
** A gun that sucks bees up instead of shooting them out.
** Bees that use humans as weapons, HumongousMecha style
** A weapon that looks like a bee.
* '''Subverted''': The bees die while still inside the weapon.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** But a few make it out alive.
** They are shot with the stinger facing outside the barrel.
* '''Parodied''':
** Bob loudly announces the horrible devastating power of his bee-gun, then points it at his enemy and presses the trigger dramatically. Dramatic silence, everyone freezes in their tracks... A few seconds pass... and then a few bees fly out lazily out of the barrel and buzz far away in random directions.
** [[TheSimpsons ...Or the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark they shoot bees at you?]]
* '''Zig Zagged''': The bee gun is quite nasty and effective until Bob starts to need a precision weapon. He switches to a more normal weapon... until he adds an underslung "sting this thing!" pheremone projector to the gun...
* '''Averted''': Bob may use a costume and equipment with a bee motif, but doesn't actually use bees as weapons.
* '''Enforced''': "If Bob the Beemaster doesn't have his Bee Bee Gun in TheMovie, then his fans are going to pitch a fit."
* '''Lampshaded''': "So, he's using bees as weapons? Bee-autiful, if a little bee-zarre!"
* '''Invoked''': A gun that fires mini attack drones is described as firing "tiny robot bees."
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''':
** Bob's enemies carry incredibly effective bee repellents/poisons.
** Bob has an innate ability to control bees, but refuses as he has a phobia.
* '''Discussed''': [[ComicBook/AmazonsAttack "Bees. My God."]]
* '''Conversed''': "Man, it would bee cool if I had a bee weapon like the hero of that show."
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Bob's years of work on killer bees left him constantly on the verge of death (with only strong medication keeping him up) due to all the attacks by the bees.
** Bob's bees always attack ''everyone'' in the area, including civilians, Bob's allies, and Bob.
* '''Reconstructed''': Yes, Bob's bees attack everyone, but he's an OmnicidalManiac.
