|Ghost in the Shell
Ghost in the Shell is the 1995 anime feature film based on the manga title of the same name by Masamune Shirow. Set in the year 2029, where Earth is interconnected in every aspect of life, the film follows Major Motoko Kusanagi, who is part of Public Security Section 9, a law enforcement agency tasked with locating a mysterious hacker known as the Puppet Master in Niihama. The film would spawn a franchise consisting of various anime series as well as a 2017 feature film adaptation that stars Scarlett Johansson.
The following weapons were used in the anime film Ghost in the Shell:
Major Motoko Kusanagi carries the CZ 100 as her sidearm. It's loosely based on the actual CZ 100, as the sides of the slide are squared off while the real model features bevelings on the slide. She also refers to it as a Zastava, confusing the CZ acronym of the former Yugoslavian small arms manufacturer Crvena Zastava with the CZ of the real gun's manufacturer, the Czech Ceska Zbrojovka Uhersky Brod.

IMI Jericho 941 Semi-Compact
Batou carries a IMI Jericho 941 Semi-Compact, although it is identified as a "Jericho 942" and is supposedly chambered in .50 AE.

Togusa carries yet another slightly fictionalized version of a real gun, the Mateba M2007, a near identical variant of the Mateba 2006M. It should be noted that the film's subtitles and the English dub incorrectly translate "Mateba" as "Matever".

IMI Micro Uzi
The hacker uses a (yet again fictional) modified Chinese copy of the IMI Micro Uzi with a different stock bracket and MAC-10-style front grip strap, loaded with "hyper-velocity ammunition" to destroy an armored van.

In this shot, the hacker slightly moves back due to the use of HV bullets.
The hacker fires his weapon at the water. This scene was recreated in the 2017 movie.
"Well, the breech and the barrel are really screwed up. That's what happens when you use HV bullets in one of these things." Batou comments on the condition of the Micro Uzi after firing hyper velocity ammunition, the damage to which being unrealistically underdone. The HV bullets are likely severely over-pressured ammunition with smaller saboted bullets judging from the ridiculous recoil, which more likely would've caused the gun to rip itself apart or blow up.
One of the unnamed diplomat's bodyguards was armed with a Steyr SPP modified for fully automatic fire, attached to briefcase frames that drop clear at the press of a button.

Public Security Section 9 carries the Crvena Zastava Nosle M22, a fictional submachine gun conceptually based on the FN P90 (and chambered in the same 5.7x28mm SS190 round). In other instances, AFS officers are seen using it during a surveillance op.
The CZN-M22's lower receiver takes influence from the AR-15 rifles and uses a bottom loading bullpup system rather than the top loading system of the actual FN P90. The case in which she carries the weapon contains accessories including a sling, bayonet, silencer and 40mm grenade launcher which replaces the foregrip.
