*** When Alice threatens Hellboy with a shotgun during their first (conscious) encounter, she claims to have loaded it with shells made from ''angel bones''. [[OhCrap Judging by Hellboy's face]], this is not only entirely possible, but would actually be dangerous to him.
*** [[spoiler:Daimio]] commissions a special weapon for the sole purpose of killing Hellboy. The result is a single massive bullet that contains, among other exotic ingredients, parts of the silver coins Judas received for betraying Jesus.


* ''Series/JonathanCreek'': In "The Letters of Septimus Noone", Ridley proposes a solution to the crime that involves the victim being shot with a crossbow bolt made of frozen blood. He's wrong, especially as his theory also involves the victim lying on the floor doing stretching exercises in her underwear when she was hot.

* Somehow even vampires and werewolves can fight with guns in ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' - as the vampires use silver bullets (later filled with liquid silver nitrate due to the werewolves pulling them out too quickly), while the werewolves load their guns with bullets that contain an irradiated fluid--irradiated with ''ultraviolet light.''

* Teana from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' has Cross Mirage, a pair of handguns that shoot magic. From the same franchise, there are Cartridges, which are condensed magic in what looks like a firearm shell, but these are not actually shot, just exploded to supercharge a Device.

* ''Film/{{District 9}}'': The "pig cannon." According to the director, there actually are random pig carcasses lying around South African slums, so [[spoiler:the PoweredArmor using one as ammo for its gravity gun isn't so weird.]] Actually... it is pretty weird, but RuleOfCool applies.

* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'': The Paintinator fires paint pellets, which doesn't do much other than splatter surfaces in colourful splatters unless there's a paint sensor connected to an action on the object. The Creatinator fires an object of your choice from water to fire to bombs to cheese; the possibilities are endless. The same can be said for emitters which can be used to set up turrets and other weapondary.
