* Realistically subverted in ''[[StreetsOfRageSaga Streets of Rage Saga's]]'' second story, ''Origins''. When Axel has to temporarily leave Blaze by herself, he leaves a pistol with her. She admits she's never held one before, so he shows her how it works. The explanation goes over her head, though, and when the time comes for her to use it, she tries to pull the hammer back...and ends up spilling all the bullets out of the clip instead. She has some difficulty reloading the bullets, but manages to work the gun correctly on the second try. Later on, she gets some gun-training from Adam.

* Appeared in ''GPF'' when Nick and Ki was visiting his family... Nick's father turned out to be a cop, and when he showed off his new service sidearm to his son, Nick -- who is otherwise a stereotypical nerd - goes through this routine before checking the sights and commenting "Nice..." Ki is somewhat intimidated. Apparently, growing up in a house with guns taught him how to handle them.
