->''"No, she's absolutely right," said Zeb, patting the enormous pistol at his hip. "This '''is''' a penis substitute. After all, if I could kill at a range of thirty meters with my penis, I wouldn't need to carry this thing around, now would I?"''
-->-- ''Literature/TheNumberOfTheBeast'' by '''Creator/RobertAHeinlein'''

Guns, cannons, swords, daggers... they're all penises.

After all, most of them are vaguely phallic (any object longer than it is wide = phallic), they penetrate human flesh, and [[ARealManIsAKiller killing people is a sign of virility]]. In the case of guns, they even [[MoreDakka "ejaculate"]] bullets, while swords tend to have a suggestive shape, guard positions where the hilt is held crotch height, and thrusting attacks. Even better if they are combined ([[BayonetYa bayonets on guns]] are the simplest applications of this, as well as any syringe-like weapon) or [[PantsPositiveSafety carried inside]] a [[TrouserSpace man's pants]].

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The infamous [[http://i.imgur.com/S4m0Q45.jpg 'Obari pose']] (named after the man who popularised it, the legendary animator/director Creator/MasamiObari) is a common shot in action anime (especially '80s/'90s mecha shows) where a warrior readies themselves for battle by brandishing a gigantic sword or gun at approximately crotch height, with the tip pointed diagonally towards the camera. It's exactly as phallic as it sounds, and the source of an enormous number of off-colour jokes about a particular era and genre of animation.
* ''Anime/AfroSamurai'': The Afro-Droid's last resort {{BFG}} in episode 3 definitely has this trope in mind.
* ''kiss×sis'' has a ''literal'' Phallic Weapon in one episode.
* In ''Manga/DeathNote'' Mello keeps a gun down the front of his trousers. Down the front of his laced, skintight, leather trousers. Considering this is seen after giving his challenge to Near, one wonders if he's compensating for something else too...
* Happens oh-so often in ''Manga/GunsmithCats''. Unsurprising, given the two themes of the show are "guns" and "fanservice."
* And from ''[[Anime/{{Scryed}} s-CRY-ed]]'': "It's thick, it's hard, and it's coming to get you!"
* There is a piece of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' fan art that describes how [[DefeatMeansFriendship "the harder you get beaten by Nanoha, the harder you get hooked on her (with some exceptions)."]] Sure enough, [[DarkMagicalGirl Fate]] seems unsatisfied with her #4 ranking (Vivio, their adoptive daughter, being #1), and pleads to Nanoha, "[[HoYay Pierce through me right now!]] With that [[WaveMotionGun fat pink thing]] of yours!"
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'''s Heero Yuy and his infamous [[TrouserSpace Spandex Space]]. [[PantsPositiveSafety Guess what he usually pulls out of those shorts?]] Despite the fact that you can see the gun tucked into his waistband in a couple of episodes, for years fans have made jokes about his [[AssShove "secret hiding place"]].
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' example: [[spoiler: Sensui's Kazuya personality's gun-arm. What he does to Yusuke with it looks ONE HELL of a lot like PrisonRape]]. This is lampshaded in the dub:
-->[[spoiler:'''Kazuya:''' ''[pressing gun to Yusuke's face]'' Open your mouth, and close your eyes..]].
* ''Manga/MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'' has a killer keep a ridiculously long revolver down the front of his pants. The guy is a huge parody of Eagleland attitudes, so he's not the most subtle person around.
* In ''Manga/{{Gamaran}}'' there's Zenmaru's great katana, Sadanaga: he's extremely proud of its size and power, gets annoyed if anyone comments on it and he's a bit flustered by Shingo's [[BladeOnAStick Onidachi]] (a 4 meter long spear), stating that's even bigger than his sword...
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Szayel releases his ''Resurreccion'' form by swallowing his sword.
** Mayuri Kurotsuchi keeps his sword sheathe hanging between his legs.
** Pesche keeps his sword in his loincloth.
** Zanpakutou in general have the FanNickname of "Soul Penis"--it has a MeaningfulName, its size grows and shrinks relative to the user's power level and control, and Ichigo was repeatedly described as wielding a zanpakutou "as long as he is tall".
* In ''Manga/BlackCat'', after smashing Train into the wall, Creed rants about how his disappointment and anger toward Train has caused his (imaginary) sword to grow enormous in strength and size. While holding a rose between his teeth, no less.
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': swords all over the place. Most notably, magic swords that you [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything draw from your lover's heart]].
* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', the Daigunzan is a huge robot shaped like a ship, that has a huge blade-like part attached to the groin, shaped like the front part of a ship. During the Battle For Teppelin, it rams itself into Dekabutsu's huge hammer, pointy end first, only to leave it stuck and detonate it, creating an opening for Gurren-Lagann to enter. This is not even getting into all the drills the protagonist uses to penetrate the heavens.
* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'': Is that a Neo-Armstrong cyclone Jet Armstrong Cannon? Such a nice replica.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': It seems that the happier Mami is, the bigger her magical rifles become, such as during episode 3 after Madoka says the [[GayMoment she wants to be by her side]]. [[spoiler:The sandworm Witch that kills her in that very same episode embodies this trope even better.]]
** When Kyouko has to kill Oktavia in episode 8, it seems that her chain-javelin is far bigger than usual. [[spoiler:Her target is Sayaka.]]
** Sayaka's lashing out by hitting a Witch to a bloody mess can be seen as venting out her sexual frustration. [[spoiler:Because she did not get the guy.]]
* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', WordOfGod mentioned in an interview that Guts' {{BFS}}s not only represent his strength and determination, but also his virility. So it's no surprise that he managed to [[spoiler:get Casca pregnant rather quickly upon returning to the Hawks]].
* ''Anime/GregoryHorrorShow''. Catherine. Giant needle. ''That is all''.
* From ''Manga/InuYasha'', the Tetsusaiga. Its normal state is a normal rusted sword, but when pulled out, it becomes larger with hair coming out of the hilt, with various energy attacks coming out of it for dealing death blows. Oh, and Inuyasha often holds it at crotch level.
* Hannah Annafellows from ''Manga/BlackButler'' takes [[https://calamitousintents.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/hannah-likes-her-weapons.jpg very interesting weapons]] from under her skirt.
* ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandaloneComplex''. In ''¥€$'', a routine arrest of some gangsters turns violent when one of them turns out to be a battle cyborg who knocks Motoko through a window before Batou takes him out. In a [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar blink-and-you-miss-it gag]], a huge cannon unfolds from the cyborg's crotch.
* In ''Anime/TransformersArmada'' Megatron's {{BFG}} didn't strap to his arm or shoulder like it did in most Transformers installments. It protruded from his hip. And just to drive the phallic nature of it home, he had to grab it with one hand to aim it. The only way it could have been more obvious is if they'd made it a pump-action.
* In ''Literature/{{Gate}}'', the peasants describe the Panzerfaust as looking like a giant steel cock.

* On Creator/HieronymusBosch 's "Hell" panel of "The Garden Of Earthly Delights" there is a long knife with two ears on the side resembling a penis and testicles.
* Inversion: Creator/HRGiger occasionally uses guns as a yonic metaphor. Google "Birth Machine" for an example.

* Creator/GeorgeCarlin's "Rockets and Penises in the Persian Gulf" routine discussed this trope, with heavy use of the word "dick".
--> "You don't need to be a sociologist or a political scientist to see the Bigger Dick Foreign Policy at work. Goes something like this: 'What? They have bigger dicks?! ''BOMB THEM!!''' And the bombs and the bullets and the rockets are all shaped like dicks. It's a subconscious desire to project the penis into other people's affairs. It's called 'fucking with people'!"

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* All over the place in UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks (Not that UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks was completely tame).
* Used hilariously for a supremely ridiculous villain in ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'', who was ridiculed all his life for having a small penis and thus built a giant cannon to attach to his crotch and called himself, what the hell, [[http://web.archive.org/web/20061108145054/http://www.headinjurytheater.com/article59.htm Codpiece]]. The horror comes in when said super villain is defeated by a transsexual heroine... who has the power to dissolve objects.
* Towards the end of ''Comicbook/{{Preacher}}'', Herr Starr develops the disturbing (and hilarious) habit of holding his gun over his (penisless since a dog attack) crotch and repeating "'''Doom''' cock... '''Doom''' cock..."
* When Franchise/{{Superman}} rescues Lana from ComicBook/LexLuthor's {{mooks}} in an early Comicbook/PostCrisis comic, he faces down a Mook with a huge bazooka and asks "Overcompensating for something there, fella?"
* Spoofed in the movie posters for a 1985 ''ComicStrip/DykesToWatchOutFor'' [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/zizyphus/34585797/ comic strip]] (famous for being the strip that popularized UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest).
* ''ComicBook/TankGirl'' has loads and loads of this in its sight gags, both for the title character and for some of her more macho enemies.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Empowered}}'', Phallik gets all his powers from holding his [[BladeOnAStick Phallo-Spear]].
* The [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080722195314/starwars/images/6/65/Galaxygun_negwt.jpg Galaxy Gun]] in ''ComicBook/DarkEmpire'' is often joked to be one of these. Considering it was built by the Emperor after the more practical [[PlanetEater World Devastator]] turned out to be a non-starter, this is [[CompensatingForSomething probably apt.]]
* Most of preteen inventor [[Comicbook/TheAdventuresOfBarryWeenBoyGenius Barry Ween's]] guns. Lampshaded in a crossover with [[Comicbook/WhiteOut Carrie Stetko]]:
-->'''Marshal Stetko:''' Are you aware all your guns look like penises?\\
'''Barry Ween:''' Oh, yeah.\\
'''Stetko:''' So, it's intentional then?\\
'''Ween:''' Oh, yeah.
* Given its premise as warfare by FanService, it's not surprising that one of ''ComicBook/TankVixens''' world-building bonus comics shows off a bunch of weapons that embrace the trope wholeheartedly. Though the ones that look like they could be used in the bedroom don't appear in the main comics, the fairly ordinary-looking gauss rifle and the hip-fired {{BFG}} are seen from time to time.
* [[https://www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibles/dc-comics-poison-ivy-sideshow-collectibles-3002202/ Poison Ivy statuette]]. Weapon? Check. Phallic? Check. You haven't noted her plants yet as your eyes were elsewhere? Check.
* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'': Brianna manages to design a waist-supported laser cannon with side-supported plasma orbs... without realizing the implications until her entire family and their friends point out her big throbbing--

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Lampshaded in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'': immediately after Joey dismisses Tea's remark on the overabundance of phallic imagery in a duel, Yami Yugi says, "Now watch as my mighty lance penetrates your moist cocoon!"

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTailFievelGoesWest'': Tiger faces off with a masked gunslinger cat who turns out to have a more powerful slingshot. Tiger's slingshot goes limp in response.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Experimental montage film ''Film/AMovie'' makes use of this trope for what's either a gag or a lampshading of the whole concept. One montage starts with a submarine captain looking through a periscope. The film then cuts to a sexy woman in bra and panties. The next clip shows the submarine firing a torpedo. Then there's a clip of an atomic bomb explosion. The sexual imagery is not subtle.
* ''Film/BonnieAndClyde'' has a very sexually charged scene where Bonnie checks out Clyde's gun.
* ''Film/{{Batman}}'' (1989) has a GettingCrapPastTheRadar example that pays off twice. First, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker shoots down Batman's plane with a ridiculously long-barreled revolver pulled from the front of his baggy clown pants. Then, immediately afterward, he uses this gun to take the [[GirlOfTheWeek Girl of the Film]] hostage, and keeps it pointed at her throughout the film's long and sexually charged [[AccidentalInnuendo climax]] (and as if that were not enough, [[ShamefulStrip relieves the leading lady of some of her clothes]] while he's at it).
* In ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'', the character Sex Machine has a "crotch gun," basically a codpiece with a gun on it.
** It also made an appearance in the Mariachi's guitar case full of guns in ''Film/{{Desperado}}'', with the Mariachi commenting that it saved his life once, but we never see him use it.
** And in ''Film/MacheteKills''. When Desdemona's GatlingGood TorpedoTits aren't enough to kill Machete she straps on the crotch gun too, discharging it with vigorous hip thrusts.
* One scene from ''Film/BeyondTheValleyOfTheDolls'' has a girl fellating a gun before being shot.
* ''Film/FightClub'' opens with [[HoYay Tyler's gun in the Narrator's mouth]].
* Gay Perry from ''Film/KissKissBangBang'' manages to kill a guy by literally shooting from the, er, hip.
* [[spoiler:Epiphany Proudfoot (Lisa Bonet)]] in ''Film/AngelHeart'' is killed by gunshot. The shot in question comes from a gun stuffed into her nether regions. We thankfully don't get to see the murder, only the aftermath.
* ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'' is one of the more obvious examples. Scaramanga's lover explains that he only makes love to her before he kills someone with his golden gun, and one scene involves him suggestively caressing her with it as she lies naked in bed. The opening credits to quite a few ''Film/JamesBond'' films involve the silhouettes of naked women and guns.
* ''Film/DrStrangelove'''s final scene has this as well. Not just the ''final'' scene.
* ''Film/TankGirl''. The title character has a moment loving on the gun of the tank she ganks from Water & Power. To the tune of ''Film/{{Shaft}}'', no less. And later on, explicitly called out as she rides the cannon up to the window of a truck. "Feeling a little inadequate?"
* ''Film/InTheLineOfFire''. When Agent Horrigan (Creator/ClintEastwood) [[{{Roofhopping}} misses a jump]] and ends up [[{{Cliffhanger}} dangling from a rooftop]]. Mitch Leary (John Malkovitch) pops up overhead, prompting Horrigan to take aim despite his failing grip. Leary teases Horrigan's pistol a bit before deciding that he'll take care of him later, and helps Horrigan to a nearby fire escape.
* That scene in ''Film/{{Videodrome}}'' where James Woods grows a vagina and then starts masturbating it with a gun.
* ''Film/DirtyHarry''. "My, that's a [[HandCannon big one]]." And in ''Film/TheEnforcer'', Harry's female partner notes tongue-in-cheek that his .44 Magnum has superior penetration.
* ''Film/ImGonnaGitYouSucka''. Bad guy to partner:
-->'''Willie:''' How come their guns are so much bigger than ours?\\
'''Thug:''' It's a phallic thing.
* ''Film/{{Orgazmo}}.'' Cock rocket. Need I say more?
* The poster for ''Film/{{Dolemite}}'' has him holding a HandCannon at crotch height, as one of his ladies grips the barrel. It's also discharging as she's gripping it.
* ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'': Dark Helmet's line: "I see your Schwartz is as big as mine. Let's see how well you handle it." He says this while he and Lone Starr are holding their [[LaserBlade pseudo-lightsabers]] at crotch level.
* In ''Film/ThePirateMovie'':
** The Pirate King is asked "Is that a knife in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?" It turns out it ''is'' a knife in his pocket, as he pulls it out and throws it into the wall beside the woman's head. However, he then demonstrates that he is also pleased to see her.
** Mabel is trying to rally the policemen to assist her. She mentions that, among their other crimes, the pirates are "cop-killers." The Sergeant's billy-club immediately goes limp, like a... well, you know.
* In the first dream level of ''Film/{{Inception}}'', [[{{Shapeshifting}} Mr. Eames]] produces a [[{{BFG}} grenade launcher]] from his {{Hammerspace}}, blows away a group of projections and says "You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." Those who do not feel that this implies "I can also do this with my penis" are hereby commended on the cleanliness of their minds.
* ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' features the infamous shower scene—the phallic-shaped knife, repeatedly stabbing Marion. Not to mention the killer having sublimated his sexual repression into murderous urges.
* ''Film/RearWindow'''s Jeff uses a telescopic lens (obviously longer than the binoculars he was previously using) to further his voyeurism and subsequent violation of his neighbor's privacy.
* In the ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' movies, the serial killer targets young women, simultaneously acting seductive towards them and trying to stab them with a knife.
* There is [[http://www.noob.us/humor/strangest-gun-fight-ever/ a clip]] from the Swedish movie ''Film/{{Kopps}}'' where a police officer throws his gun into the air, opens his pants, catches the gun in the open fly, then buckles his belt over the gun. He then guns down two criminals using pelvic thrusts. Then takes out the third by hacky-sacking the gun and kicking it into mook's face.
* ''Film/DeathWish''. While at a gun range in Tuscon, Arizona, Paul Kersey mentions to his client Ames that he was a Conscientious Objector during the Korean War.
-->'''Ames:''' I suppose you're one of those liberals who think [[FreudWasRight our guns are a substitute for our penises]].\\
'''Kersey:''' Maybe it's true.\\
'''Ames:''' Maybe. But this is gun country.
* ''Film/{{Alien}}''. The [[WordOfGod filmmakers state]] that the rolled-up adult magazine that [[spoiler:crew member Ash]] tries to suffocate Ripley with is meant to be a penis substitute, because [[spoiler:as an android [[BarbieDollAnatomy he doesn't have one himself]]]].
* This is {{lampshade|Hanging}}d endlessly in ''Film/ShootEmUp''.
** Hertz tortures a hooker by shooting up bottles in her room with his HandCannon, then pressing the hot barrel against her thighs, eventually reaching between her legs with it. Fortunately the hero turns up.
--->'''Smith:''' That's a six shooter. [[CountingBullets I just counted six shots]]. You've blown your load.
** A hit squad burst in on the hero as he's having sex. [[CoitusUninterruptus He kills them all without stopping.]]
--->'''Smith:''' [[BondOneLiner Talk about shooting your load.]]
** A secret service agent comes out of a toilet stall polishing his HandCannon.
--->'''Smith:''' What were you doing in there?\\
'''Agent:''' ''[looking shifty]'' [[ADateWithRosiePalms Cleaning my gun.]]\\
'''Smith:''' [[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow Really...]]
* ''City Heat''. In the final shootout Creator/ClintEastwood and Creator/BurtReynolds keep producing larger pistols in an attempt to both shoot the mooks and [[CompensatingForSomething one-up each other]]. [[Film/DirtyHarry Clint naturally has the biggest gun]], an absurdly long-barreled revolver which he pulls [[TrouserSpace out of his trousers]].
* From the short film ''Airlords of Airia''.
-->"Return fire! We'll see who has the longest cannon here!"
* ''When Eight Bells Toll'' (1971). The hero uses the DamselInDistress for a ShowSomeLeg ploy to distract a guard.
-->'''Girl:''' ''[caressing barrel of guard's rifle]'' Is it loaded?\\
'''Guard:''' Yeah, it sure is. ''[moves in on her and gets clobbered from behind by the hero]''
* In ''Film/TheGeneralsDaughter'', during a flashback to [[spoiler: Captain Campbell's gang rape at West Point]], a soldier is shown to be ''very'' suggestively stroking the barrel of his rifle.
* ''Film/LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels'':
-->'''Soap:''' I brought weapons as well.\\
'''Eddie:''' What do you mean, weapons?\\
'''Soap:''' ''[pulls a bundle from his coat and unrolls it, revealing large knives]'' These.\\
'''Eddie:''' Jesus! ''[grabs the bundle and rerolls it]'' Let's keep them covered up, eh? Couldn't you get anything bigger?\\
'''Soap:''' ''[[[TrouserSpace pulls a big ass machete from his trousers]]]'' What, like that? What do you think?\\
'''Eddie:''' ...I think you need help.
* A subtle example to be found in ''Film/IslandOfLostSouls'': MadScientist Dr. Moreau wears his revolver holstered at the front so that the barrel is somewhat tucked between his thighs, the butt jutting outwards from his groin. Apparently this was a deliberate choice by openly gay actor Creator/CharlesLaughton. Amusingly, since the gun is worn barrel inwards, butt out, this makes it a weird ''reverse'' Phallic Weapon.
* ''Film/Deadpool2016'': Theatrical posters show the Merc-with-the-Mouth conspicuously brandishing a Desert Eagle right in front of his crotch, similar to the ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' video game example.
* ''Film/JackReacher''. Reacher compares the frustration of not being able to kill to sexual frustration. When he's saying this, a flashback showns SociopathicSoldier Barr in Iraq, pushing a knife through a blanket draped over his crotch.
* ''Film/SoldierOfOrange''. The protagonist has just become a bomber pilot and boasts of all the German cities he can bomb, while having sex with his girlfriend. Unfortunately he has a premature 'explosion' before completing his list.
* The scene in ''Film/PointBlank'' where Walker bursts into the bedroom of the man who betrayed and cuckolded him, emptying his .44 Magnum into the (empty) bed. He then [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything sits there with an empty gun, emotionally exhausted]], while his ex rambles on about why she betrayed him.
* ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' (1992). Watched by a wide-eyed Mina Harker, Lucy Westenra appears to be reaching into the trousers of her American suitor, saying "Let me touch it; it's so big!" only to remove a huge Bowie knife.
* ''Let's Get Harry'' (1986). A group of construction workers, financed by a gung-ho businessman and advised by a mercenary, go down to Columbia to rescue a colleague. The mercenary, who's given them strict instructions not to try bringing guns into the country, walks into their hotel room, grabs the businessman by the crotch and says, "I want you to give me this." While the others are gaping at this apparent HoYay, the businessman gives a shamefaced grin and produces a 9mm pistol [[TrouserSpace from his underpants]].
* ''Film/MadMax1''. Toecutter asserts his authority over Johnny the Boy (implied to be his male lover) by making him suck the barrel of his shotgun, telling him, "Keep your sweet, sweet, mouth shut!"
* ''Film/TheExpendables3''. Caesar is informed that the [[GatlingGood mini-gatling he's so excited over]] will "shoot its wad" (run through its ammunition) in [[AwesomeButImpractical only ten seconds]]. Caesar quips back, [[SpeedSex "You have that problem too?"]]
* ''Film/OSS117CairoNestOfSpies''. 117's handgun. He can load and unload it. It has a great coefficient of penetration.
* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' with Tony's [[TheLoinsSleepTonight "performance issues"]] comment after {{No Sell}}ing Loki's staff.
* In the 'Ozploitation' movie ''Film/TurkeyShoot'', the villains have a DoubleEntendre-laced conversation about the SniperPistol that [[PsychoLesbian Jennifer]] is GunStripping.
-->'''Tito:''' 32 seconds. You manipulate it well, my dear; like part of your body.
-->'''Jennifer:''' It is my own design.
-->'''Thatcher:''' Yeeees, a very nice piece. Serviceable, well contoured, a good feel. Perhaps a trifle large in the bore...
-->'''Jennifer:''' It's been my experience, Charles, that it's less the size that counts, but the skill with which it's used.

* Some literary critics have theorized that Killdeer, Natty Bumppo's long rifle in James Fenimore Cooper's ''Literature/TheLastOfTheMohicans'' was the TropeCodifier, at least for American culture.
* In the ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' series, several characters have CargoShip-level emotional involvement with their {{Empathic Weapon}}s (which are all swords or daggers), are described as stroking them compulsively, and in some cases, the narrator comments on how [[CompensatingForSomething the weapon is much larger than the wielder]].
* In ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'', there's a popular BawdySong called "A Wizard's Staff Has a Knob on the End." It's... not actually about the [[MagicStaff staffs they do magic with]].
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' book Summer Knight has one wizard ask Harry, "Still going with the phallic foci, eh? Staff and rod?" He replies, "They make me feel all manly."
* In ''Literature/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'', M reads a psychiatric report on Scaramanga speculating that he uses a massive [[BlingBlingBang gold-plated]] HandCannon as an assassination weapon because he's CompensatingForSomething due to his [[AmbiguouslyGay ambiguous sexuality]], whereas the ruggedly heterosexual Commander Bond usually carried a [[LittleUselessGun .25-calibre]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beretta_418 Beretta 418]] as his primary sidearm at the time. Bond did keep a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colt_Single_Action_Army Colt .45 Army Special]] in the glove compartment of his car as a backup in case he needed something with more punch, which could be interpreted in any number of ways, but that might be overthinking it. It's easy to understand why the film adaptation reimagined the Golden Gun into [[ScaramangaSpecial something very different]] and less Freudian.
* In ''Literature/TheIronDream'', Feric Jaggar's weapon, The Great Truncheon of Held, also known as the Steel Commander, is described in unambiguously phallic terms. And then Feric Jaggar forces his new underling to kneel and kiss it.
* In ''Literature/{{Gate}}- Thus the JSDF Fought There'', the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzerfaust_3 Panzerfaust 3]] used by Japanese soldiers to wound a powerful dragon is described as the "Rod of Steel" by natives of the Special Region beyond the Gate. In the manga adaptation, the weapon has a suggestive outline around it as one refugee says it looks just like a man's thing.
* In the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' universe, there is some phallic symbolism around the Elder Wand, legendarily the most powerful and dangerous wand in the world. Hermione (notably, a female character) says that the idea of one wand being better than another is nonsense and that "some wizards just claim to boast that theirs are bigger and better." In ''Literature/TheTalesOfBeedleTheBard'', it's stated that no witch has ever claimed to own the Elder Wand (that is, only men ever have) and invites the reader to "make of that what you will."
* Not-Baragon from ''Literature/NESGodzillaCreepypasta'' sports a minigun that comes out of its crotch. He also happens to be a bizarre bipedal creature with no arms and an elephant's skull for a head. And he's not the strangest monster in the story...
* In the ''Literature/{{Nightside}}'' series, descriptions of the Speaking Gun - a ''phenomenally'' powerful ancient weapon made out of living tissue - disturbingly refer to it smelling like dogs in heat, feeling fever-hot, and sweating from the patches of skin on its exterior.
* ''[[Literature/JohnRain The Detachment]]''. Dox releases a teenaged girl [[IHaveYourWife they're holding hostage]] and is [[AMatchMadeInStockholm uncomfortable with how much he enjoys being hugged by her in gratitude]]. There's a gun tucked [[PantsPositiveSafety into his front waistband]], so he thinks that it will do as an appropriate metaphor.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Discussed in ''Series/ThirtyRock'':
-->'''Liz:''' What is it with men and guns?\\
'''Tracy:''' Well, I think I speak for the both of us when I say "because they're [[FreudWasRight metal penises]]."
* ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'': Have you seen my forcelance?
* Used deliberately and disturbingly in ''Series/SixFeetUnder'' when [[spoiler:a carjacker forces Dave to suck on his gun and threatens to shoot him with it before running away. In a show where AnyoneCanDie, it seemed like he might pull the trigger]].
* It's [[EpilepticTrees been speculated]] that this is why Series/{{Xena|WarriorPrincess}} prefers [[WeaponOfChoice her chakram]] to the sword, since it's yonic rather than phallic.
* In the episode "The Gun" of ''[[Series/{{MASH}} M*A*S*H]]'', Frank steals a gun. Margaret also gets an orgasm when Frank shows her the gun (she then doesn't know yet that Frank has stolen the gun).
* Played with in ''Series/BurnNotice'', where the girlfriend of the not-too-bright son of the villain of the week gets the hots for Michael.
--> '''Debbie:''' I... want to see your gun.\\
'''Michael:''' Okay, that's not my gun. ''Not'' my gun.
* In Season 4 of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', the government implants an '[[RestrainingBolt inhibitor chip]]' in vampire Spike that prevents him from biting anyone, a condition that's compared rather tongue-in-cheek to impotence. He's delighted when someone gives him a pistol as he can at least threaten people, but then finds the chip stops him from even ''aiming'' it. Spike's response is to [[CompensatingForSomething demand a bigger gun]].
* ''Series/{{Angel}}''. In "Billy", Cordelia is holding the title character, a rampant misogynist, at crossbow-point.
-->'''Billy:''' So, you can dress like a man, talk like a man? Does that make you feel superior?\\
'''Cordelia:''' Actually, I'm feeling superior because I have an arrow pointed at your jugular. And the irony of using a phallic shaped weapon? Not lost on me.
* In Season 3 of ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Joffrey fires his crossbow from the hip, and the camera angle clearly implies this trope. This is after he has lovingly shown and described it to his fiance, and he has already shown that he gets turned on by violence and killing. [[spoiler:He later uses the crossbow to murder a prostitute for kicks.]]
* Lampshaded by ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' during "Danger, Death Ray!"
-->'''Mike:''' (''as death ray scientist'') Of course it's phallic, why wouldn't it be?
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. In "Coup by Clam" John Crichton is DisguisedInDrag to infiltrate a brothel. When it's time to resort to violence, he gets up on a table and asks loudly, "Does anyone else here, have one of these, under their skirt?" then produces and starts firing GunsAkimbo the two pulse pistols he had strapped to his thighs.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Bride of Chaotica!" Captain Janeway has to enter a [[Film/TheAdventuresOfCaptainProton campy sci-fi holodeck program]], posing as intergalactic FemmeFatale Queen Arachnia. MadScientist Dr Chaotica proudly shows her his DeathRay. Janeway promptly strokes the barrel in a [[TheVamp sensual manner]].
-->'''Janeway:''' Ohhh, it looks like a... formidable weapon.\\
'''Chaotica:''' [[CompensatingForSomething The most powerful in the cosmos!]]
* ''Series/{{Oz}}''. The SinisterShiv called a Don Juan (made from a sharpened bed spring) earned that name because it penetrates (unlike the Gillette Bayonet, which is only good for cutting).
* On a live broadcast of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOXKLz4UfRY Q13 News This Morning in Seattle]], anchor Kaci Aitchison demonstrated a drawing app and tried to draw a cannon. The problem was, as this trope suggests, the resulting sketch looked a lot like, well, not a cannon. Hysterical {{corpsing}} ensued. The presenters tried bravely to carry on, but [[HilarityEnsues they were helpless]].
* In an episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', Frasier accuses Niles of using antique purchases to deflect his sexual frustration. Niles is defensive, but then considers that one of his purchases was a Civil War era ramrod, and concedes that Frasier may have a point.
-->'''Niles:''' Oh, you [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian Freudians]]! Sometimes a ramrod is just a... oh hell, even I can't make that one fly.

* The Music/NineInchNails song "Big Man With A Gun."
* [[{{Gayngster}} Deadlee's]] "Suck Mah Gun."
* "Gunz Yo" by Sage Francis.
* The Lulu [[Film/JamesBond Bond theme]] "The Man With The Golden Gun," in a hilariously unsubtle way.
* Cher in ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5G4O5AMSevc this music video]]). Music/MitchBenn in the video for "Happy Birthday, War," as a parody of the Cher video.
* Kings of Metal by Manowar. The line "We got the biggest amps, man they blast." But the whole song, as well as Manowar image in general, are an example of this, or more suitably, Not compensating for anything trope. As those tropes are close, in case of Manowar, they complete each other.
* The band Machine Gun Fellatio.
* The Music/{{Ludo}} song Go-Getter Greg: "I'm a go-getter guy with a gun on my hip, I'm just searching for that someone to be firing it."
* The Toybox song 007 has "Bad girls scream when I show my gun!"
* "Steady Mobbing" by Music/LilWayne "Uh, Man suck my clip. Swallow my bullets and don't you spit."
* "Love Gun" by Music/{{KISS}}.
* "Big Gun" by Lita Ford.
* "Kitara ja kivääri" (Guitar and Rifle) by EppuNormaali:
--> Sull' on kivääri ja mull' on kitara ja kamat
--> molemmilla meillä välineet on samat
--> on molemmilla vara-pippeli!
--> (You have rifle and I got guitar and gear / we both have the same stuff / we both have a spare-wee-wee!)
* Music/AliceCooper's "I'm your gun"
* And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khM3NIh85xg that]]'s what Music/{{Rammstein}} do when they perform ''Pussy'' live.
* "Shoot From The Hip" by Music/{{WASP}}

* A literal Phallic Weapon: One legendary headline of "Bild", the German tabloid, was "Totschlag mit Penis", which is unfortunately untranslatable: "Second Degree Murder with Penis" does not insinuate, like in the German version, that the poor woman was clobbered to death with a GagPenis. [[note]]If you insist to know, [[OutWithABang a blowjob went south]]...squicky enough.[[/note]]

* The poem The Love That Dares to Speak It's Name plays heavily on the phallic nature of the centurion's spear. Perhaps to be expected, as the poem relates the repeated sexual penetration of the corpse of a recently crucified man, including seemingly in wounds inflicted with a spear.

* During the reign of S.C.U.M. in Wrestling/RingOfHonor, Wrestling/JimmyJacobs used phallic symbolism to describe the use of his [[WeaponOfChoice railroad spike]].[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''VideoGame/MechWarrior'' gives us the Flea light mech, with a... rather unfortunately placed flamethrower.
* Most [[HumongousMecha Titans]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' tend to have sensible weapon placements, but the ''[[http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Imperator-class_Titan?file=Emperor_Titan_2.jpg Imperator]]'' class decided to cram one extra cannon in an undignified location. The Orks' Gargants aren't much better, and though their biggest weapons are called "belly guns," depending on the model they may protrude from fairly law on the Gargant's bulk, or even from beneath its armored skirt. On a more organic note, the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranids]]' [[LivingWeapon ranged weapon symbiotes]] tend to operate through muscle spasms, spurting liquids, and writhing payloads.
* The original proposed covers for ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' 4th edition were [[ContemptibleCover not very well received]], and the reasons included a rocket launcher in one of the illustrations that quickly became known as the "dildo gun", and an off-brand [[Franchise/StarWars lightsaber]] being held in a rather suggestive manner.

* In the ''Film/TransformersFilmSeries'' toyline, Swindle's cannon is normally [[ChestBlaster mounted in his chest]] while in robot mode, but can be swung down so as to protrude from his crotch. It even "erects" at the push of a button.
* ''ComicBook/ThePunisher'' shapeshifter toy has a crotch cannon; it was intended to be transformed into a pistol in the same manner as [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Megatron]], but it somehow becomes a crotch cannon instead. It's still technically a "pistol" however.
* This was allegedly the reason why Hasbro's [[http://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/131676257269-0-1/s-l1000.jpg Oozinator]] caused such controversy. It was a large squirt gun that was [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything filled with clear white ooze]].The website's promotional page for the product supposedly read:

-->'''Ad:''' Sneak up on your opponents with a surprise bio-ooze attack! Just when they think you’re coming at ‘em with water, blast ‘em with a shot of icky bio-ooze! Shoot out [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal globs of gooey]] bio-ooze and then drench ‘em with water! It’s a double blast attack that’ll keep your opponents on their toes and running during every water fight. With the OOZINATOR blaster you don’t just get soaked, you get drenched!

* The box art for ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' shows a cocky Duke from a [[HitlerCam low angle]], with his smoking gun over his crotch and a female hand grabbing his waist. Yeah… subtle.
** The Impregnader from ''The Doctor Who Cloned Me'' DownloadableContent takes this UpToEleven, it is a portable ''literal'' Phallic Weapon.
* "Hey Vyse, my cannon is bigger than yours!" - Vigoro, ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' (he showed up in a ship with a huge freaking cannon mounted on it).
* In ''Videogame/MetalGearSolid'', Revolver Ocelot is the AnthropomorphicPersonification of this trope. Just listen to his speeches about "slamming a bullet down a shaft" when reloading....
** Where does DepravedBisexual KnifeNut Vamp keep his favorite blade? Exactly where you'd think.
** Metal Gear REX has a crotch-mounted laser.
* A quote from Kreia about the lightsaber in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'': "For the male, it seems to have inordinate importance. But we shall leave such male preoccupations for philosophers and cultural historians."
* In ''VideoGame/{{Dystopia}}'', another heavy kills people with a [[http://www.dystopia-game.com/wiki/images/d/de/Dys_mk2_Corp_Heavy.jpg white stream of ions]].
* When visiting the Citadel for the first time in ''Videogame/MassEffect1'', the crew of the almost tiny FragileSpeedster ''Normandy'' is deeply impressed when passing TheBattlestar ''Destiny Ascension'', the biggest warship in the entire galaxy. Which leads pilot Joker to one of his usual moments of snarking:
-->'''Ashley:''' Look at the size of that ship!\\
'''Joker:''' Well, size isn't everything.\\
'''Ashley:''' Why so touchy, Joker?\\
'''Joker:''' I'm just saying: You have to have firepower, too!
** He gets to ''prove'' it too--[[spoiler:he and the Normandy get to deliver the killing blow to Sovereign]].
** Though ironically, the shape of the Destiny Ascension is far more feminine than most other warship designs.
* A nice Renegade response from Female Shepard at Omega from ''Videogame/MassEffect2'':
-->'''Merc Recruiter:''' Well, aren't you sweet? You're in the wrong place, honey. Strippers' quarters are that way.
-->'''Shepard:''' [''pulling out her gun''] Show me yours, tough guy. I'll bet mine's bigger.
* The [[GagPenis Penetrator]] melee weapon in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird''. It's an over-sized dildo. The in-game description says it all:
--> The absurdity of a sex toy with the lethality of a baseball bat.
** Naturally, it makes a return in the even more ludicrous ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', this time in purple, [[{{ComicBook/Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan glowing blue]], and candy cane. The description for the candy cane version:
--> Our weapon artists need professional help.
** ''Enter the Dominatrix'' is generous with this, but the greatest stand-out is the Dildozer, a BDSM-themed [[TankGoodness tank]] with a blatantly penis-shaped main turret and matching coaxial machine gun.
* [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/444899 This "Mecha Dress-up" flash game]] gives you an achievement for building a robot with a minigun between its legs; the achievement's description is "why would you put it ''there?!''"
* Rospark from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'', in his humanoid flower form, has a very pink phallic rod in between his legs, alongside another one jutting out of his head, that he uses to discharge electric blasts. He also has some homosexual undertones, given from how he enjoys fighting Grey and treating Ashe like she's full of cooties. Oh, and [[BaraGenre he's a rose.]]
* Mentioned by name in the obscure first person arena-shooter ''XS''. All of the contenders in the game are given biographies, which may include audio logs from a arena physician or the local psychologist. One of the contenders is a large SnakePerson, in the sense that he has a snake's head and lower body, but a scaly humanoid torso. He favors [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter a shotgun]]. The (female) psychologist actually gets upset at the excess of phallic imagery and declares him a "Freudian mess who uses his gun to spew all over the audien--" at which point she is cut off by the interviewer hurriedly turning off the microphone.
* In ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'', the psychopath Randy Tuggman wields a chainsaw that he likes to hold at crotch level and makes pelvic thrusts while revving it.
* In ''VideoGame/DeadRising3'', the psychopath Dylan Fuentes, who personifies Lust of the SevenDeadlySins, wields a flamethrower mounted on his crotch that resembles a cock and balls.
* ''VideoGame/StarControl'' has the [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Syreen]], a mostly-female race, use ships that look like vibrators. They're even ribbed and are called ''Penetrator''s. It's not clear if they've always been this sex-obsessed, or if it's the recent shortage of men (out of about 10,000 survivors of their race, only 500 are male).
* In ''VideoGame/SunsetOverdrive'', the Flaming Compensator is this. As it has two feeding mechanisms that look like testicles. It's actually a reference to compensating for having a small penis, with big balls.
* In ''VideoGame/TheAngryVideoGameNerdAdventures'', the Nerd refers to "scrotum guns" trying to kill him during the level "Future Fuckballs 2010". Said level also has phallic missiles.
* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFuckboys'' has the Dragon Dildo, a recurring InfinityPlusOneSword. The descritption of the first one calls you out on it:
--> ''Wow. You dirty, depraved piece of shit.''
* Rather subverted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' when the legendary Master Sword is revealed to be literally female--specifically, a spirit named Fi.
* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles'', Alexia Ashford ''herself'' is one.
* ''Franchise/SilentHill'':
** ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'''s main antagonist, Pyramid Head, has a long phallic blade as a main weapon. This ties into the fact that all of the villains are metaphorically connected to James, usually by sexual undertones....
** In ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'', the Closers can impale Heather through the crotch with their phallic arm blades as a FinishingMove.
* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series lore, "Muatra" is the name of the spear used by Dunmeri [[PhysicalGod Tribunal Deity]] Vivec. It is rather strongly implied to be a ''literal'' case of this trope, particularly in Vivec's ''36 Lessons'' [[InGameNovel book series]], crossing over with ICallHimMisterHappy and NamedWeapon. In the ''Lessons'', he uses it to kill his monster children (sired with [[GodOfEvil Molag Bal]]) and to have sex with fellow Tribune Almalexia, amongst other things. Granted, Vivec is a notoriously UnreliableNarrator, who later admits that [[BlatantLies some of his sermons are false]], and is a master of using the MetaphoricallyTrue trope.
* The protagonist of Website/{{Newgrounds}} Flash game ''[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/428930 CannonCrotch]]'' is basically a recoloured Codpiece from ''Doom Patrol'' (see Comics above) as a stereotypically British secret agent fighting [[StupidJetpackHitler Nazis armed with giant robots and a Hitler clone]].
* In ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'', Travis's Beam Sword recharges through shaking a dynamo within it. The way Travis charges it, however, has him holding the sword in front of his pelvic area, pointing outwards and slightly upwards, and him vigorously shaking it back and forth panting heavily, making it look amazingly like ADateWithRosiePalms. As Travis is vulnerable when he's recharging, and the sword's power frequently runs out in the heat of battle, you'll most often see Travis performing this animation in a remote corner, facing a wall.
* In ''VideoGame/TheSaboteur'', Sean meets up with [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian Freudian psychologist]] Felix Kwong, who muses on the psycho-sexual underpinnings of Nazi ideology. In one mission, he tasks Sean with destroying a massive howitzer gun to demoralize the Nazis, describing the weapon as a monument to their "sexual dominance".
-->'''Dr. Kwong:''' The cannon's massive barrel thrusts into the sky above Paris like an engorged pillar of masculine flesh... while the women of the city tremble in the eclipsing shadow.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': The Engineer's buildings (the voice clips describes setting one up as "erecting", and a typical Engineer is always hunched over one and beating it which his wrench--which, in the case of the gunslinger, is a robot hand) and the Medic's Medigun (held at waist level, has a big black thick barrel, shoots streams of team-colored energy, vibrates; popping an uber when nothing is shooting at you is considered the equivalent of a premature ejaculation) are treated as such by fans.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* As the ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' between [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983 He-Man]] and [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats1985 Lion-O]] features two muscular, scantily-clad men wielding huge swords, one of which extends, the phallic weapon jokes were pretty much inevitable:
-->'''He-Man:''' Back off, feline, you are clearly not equipped to--\\
''[Lion-O's Sword of Omens [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything grows longer]]]''\\
'''He-Man:''' ''[[[AmbiguouslyGay in a very pleased tone]]]'' Ooooooh!

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In ''Webcomic/SwordCatPrincess'', Kathryn fights with either a pair of katanas or a two-handed omega battle sword. She used the latter to phallic effect in [[http://swordcatprincess.thecomicseries.com/comics/59/ penetrating the ground]] to try to resist Oberon's telekinetic pull toward his more feminine omega throne. Kathryn also carries an iron railroad spike to ward off faeries; she [[http://swordcatprincess.thecomicseries.com/comics/55/ penetrates Julia's heart with it]].
* '''Don't''' insinuate this to Vulcan Raven in ''Webcomic/TheLastDaysOfFoxhound''.
-->'''Raven:''' I don't think we've been introduced. My name's Vulcan Raven. And this here's m'gun.\\
'''Ninja:''' So... small dick, huh?\\
'''Raven:''' Congratulations! Your death will be an extra 25% more painful.
* [[http://www.explosm.net/comics/1445/ This]] ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' comic.
* Winter in Webcomic/{{Girly}} fights with a giant dildo.
* Paul Rudd in Webcomic/WeenieLicked has at least two weenie-based weapons.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''. Castle Heterodyne is acting as ShipperOnDeck for Gilgamesh Wulfenbach, pointing out that he comes from a powerful family, is already smitten with her, and packs a very powerful DeathRay. As Agatha has a thing for death rays, the last one gives her pause.
-->'''Castle:''' Heh heh, all the Wulfenbach sparks were known for their over-sized machinery you know.
* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. When [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0308.html Roy has his sword repaired]], Durkon calls him out for being too much excited about it. The strip is titled "Sword Envy".
* Lampshaded and inverted in [[http://oglaf.com/glamazon-way/ this]] (SFW) ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' strip, where a "Glamazon" criticizes a female warrior's sword for being a phallic weapon, and claims that women should using engulfing weapons like the whip, net, lasso and... [[RingsOfDeath throwing]] [[BreadEggsMilkSquick anus]].
-->'''AltText:''' The Glamazons don't follow fashion -- they set traps for it and wear its shiny pelt.

* The ''[[TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}} Jade Regent]]'' RPG Actual Play podcasts from Podcast/{{RPGMP3}} feature a weapon called [[NamedWeapons Oathtaker]]. During their travels, the adventurers [[RobbingTheDead stumbled across]] this magical ''tetsubo'' (a [[CarryABigStick huge Oriental bludgeoning weapon]]). Apart from its obvious uses, it can also force people under a [[MagicallyBindingContract Blood Geas]]. It's currently wielded by Harold Shinken, who discovered that the Viking women of the [[GrimUpNorth Linnorm Kingdoms]] were [[ChickMagnet very impressed]] by the weapon's... craftsmanship.
* Literalized in ''It's Always Time'': Strawberry Banana (a.k.a. SB) (she's made of Jell-O; ItMakesSenseInContext) is a woman with a penis. A ''detachable'' penis. And when she detaches it, it turns into a sword.
* An over-the-top feminist review of ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' uses this in a ridiculously contrived analysis regarding the misogynist implications of shooter games. It then praised Portal for it's feminist aspects, that included the portals' semblance to a vagina.
* Many Japanese netizens have mocked the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xianxingzhe Xianxingzhe]] (or Senkousha in Japanese), China's first bipedal humanoid robot, for (among other things) having protruding joints near its crotch. Many parody videos and games of the robot have interpreted the protrusion as a powerful WaveMotionGun called the "Chinese Cannon".
* One web video on the ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' website has a panel discussing the possibility that James Barrie, the creator of ''Literature/PeterPan'', might have been a ''little'' too fond of children. They then run with this theory and interpret everything long and pointed in the [[Disney/PeterPan 1953 Disney movie]] as a phallic symbol of some sort--everything from pine trees to Captain Hook's sword.
* [[TheGunslinger Percy]] from ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'' managed to avoid jokes about his guns for 27 Episodes, but they couldn't put it off forever. After the List misfires twice in one encounter in Episode 28, he says "I swear, this never happens to me."
* In Website/{{Pixiv}}, this is denoted as "中華キャノン" [[note]]lit. Chinese Cannon[[/note]], the term was originated from the waist joint equipped on the robot "先行者" (Xianxingzhe) developed in China. However, due to the camera angle, it shows an uncanny resemblance to a crotch cannon. Afterward, Aoshima Bunka Kyozai released a model kit based on the Xianxingzhe robot in July 2002 on Japanese magazine Netrun, namely "Chinese Cannon", with a [[http://www.geocities.jp/shakabe8/yb/old/pack.jpg crotch cannon firing a rocket]], hence the namesake of the tag.
* ''WebVideo/KeyOfAwesome''. In the Space Girl episode "Pseudopods!", the evil [[BrainInAJar Dr Brain]] threatens to launch his doomsday rocket, only for it to fall over limply. The aliens he's threatening can [[LetsMockTheMonsters barely suppress their laughter]] and suggest he might be CompensatingForSomething.
-->'''Dr Brain:''' Surrender now or my Titan rocket will penetrate your defenses. What good are your Freudian analyses in the face of my long red rocket...I don't mean it that way...surrender now or [[DiggingYourselfDeeper my punishment will be stiff indeed...]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* There was a Creator/{{Disney}} WartimeCartoon made to drum up support for the troops during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. One scene features a cannon being loaded, only to [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything go limp after running out of ammo]].
* In the MGM cartoon ''WesternAnimation/BlitzWolf'', after a cannon fires, it goes limp. It gets fed "Vitamin B-1" and suddenly becomes erect and starts rapidly shooting nonstop.
* The Fire Nation drill in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Definitely [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything reminds you of something]] once it's actually being put to use.
* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuyPresentsLaughItUpFuzzball'', Obi-Wan, played by Herbert, first has his lightsaber limped. After seeing Luke Skywalker, played by Chris, his lightsaber becomes erect.
