** The titular duo was once forced to drop their guns by a druglord and his wife who had them outgunned. When their guns hit the ground, they went off, killing the drug lord and his wife instantly. Stroker angrily lampshaded that they don't have nearly that kind of accuracy when they actually try.

** Similarly, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nHE-EErdWs this reporter dunks a half-court shot. Over his shoulder. Without looking.]] Even he doesn't believe he did it.

* Zig-zagged with Japanese and Vietnamese fighting the Americans. Both forces had a penchant for hitting Headquarters or supply dumps (especially ammo dumps) with suspiciously few rounds and quite regularly [[note]] The Main Ammunition dump in Khe Sanh received two direct hits on two separate occasions during the siege for example [[/note]]. Zig-zagged because there have been theories that these 'hits' were actually timed explosives hidden in the HQs or dumps by infiltrating sappers, masked by a few rounds of artillery around the location and time of the planned explosion.

* Another one is from Kansas where the basketball coach is set up for a prank where he is blindfolded and asked to shoot. The crowd would then cheer no matter how badly he missed so that they can screw with him when he starts to believe that he actually made the shot. He actually does make the shot. Funny thing is, a reporter making a report on it, for emphasis, tosses the ball behind him without looking and it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nHE-EErdWs goes in the basket]].

* In ''Manga/PandoraHearts'', we get a variant of this: When Oz is kidnapped by the [[NighInvulnerability Baskervilles]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Elliot]] [[ThoseTwoGuys and]] [[{{Bookworm}} Leo]] come to rescue him. Toward the end of the ensuing battle, Leo fires his gun at [[{{Yandere}} Lottie]] and manages to skim her arm and cause enough of a distraction for them to escape. Directly afterwards, he reveals that he is [[http://www.mangareader.net/350-24655-13/pandora-hearts/chapter-26.html genuinely surprised that he actually managed to hit her]], as, according to Elliot, he's "hopeless with guns and swords."
