In fact, even if the brain is hit resulting in unconsciousness, permanent personality change, or a FateWorseThanDeath, it [[RealityIsUnrealistic might also not be fatal]]; [[http://www.thegunzone.com/11april86.html in fact, sometimes people even carry on fighting with such wounds]]. Powerful large-calibre rounds shot at point-blank to liquefy the brain are needed for painless suicide, and real-life snipers doing a boom-headshot use a powerful rifle and high-velocity rounds to blow the head up Kennedy assassination-style; if the sniper does not want to be messy, he/she has to aim at a ''specific'' part of the head if (s)he" trying for a quick takedown; this is the medulla oblongata in the brainstem at the base of the brain, known as the "sweet spot" or "apricot", and it controls vital involuntary functions, most prominently breathing and heartbeat.

In RealLife, while being shot in the head is seldom a ''good'' thing, the actual effects may vary significantly from the usual InstantDeathBullet depiction; the brain doesn't take up the entire head, after all, and bullets with poor velocity can fail to penetrate or deflect off the skull. Everyone who watches the news for a while has seen some story about someone [[TisOnlyABulletInTheBrain surviving a wound to the head]] with a ridiculously large object, be it a masonry nail, tool blade or even a scaffolding pole.
