In Kit Karamak's stories, there are numerous examples of directed-energy weapons. They are most prevalent in the Star Fox stories, but also make appearances in the Sly Cooper series. Most of them are fictional systems unique to their respective game franchises, though real-world systems such as the Mobile THEL system have also appeared on occasion (the THEL appearing in Detente mounted in carrier-modified F-22 Raptor fighters used by the United States Navy).
