Plinker's Canyon (セガ・プリンカーズ・キャニオン) is a 1976 electro-mechanical shooting game manufactured by Sega for one to four players. The player has twelve potential targets to shoot: nine stationary targets such as tin cans, a frying pan, a playing card, and a news, and a rolling egg, flying bird and dodging mouse for moving targets. Up to three cabinets can be linked together, and all 12 rifles can shoot targets in any machine.

Plinker's Canyon was the last electro-mechanical arcade game developed by Sega, who had switched to manufacturing discrete logic games starting in 1974.
