* A major chunk of the plot for ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins'' consists of Batman dealing with the eight assassins Black Mask [[spoiler:really the Joker]] hired to kill him. There are actually achievements for getting past two of them - Shiva and Deathstroke - without taking damage or missing a counter, which would make them ''really'' outclassed, but just making it to the end of story mode means you've outfought six of the eight.

* In ''Fanfic/DejaVuNoJutsu'', a ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fanfiction, the main character Mesuji Natsumi, an assassin herself, not only stops the assassination of her teacher's wife and son, but later on, her own assassination.

She's more annoyed by the latter, much to her husband's dismay considering she was ''just off a mission'' and not in good shape BEFORE she ended up fighting for her life.

* One of the sidequests in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' for Imperial players in Nar Shaddaa is to take out Republic assassins sent after them (the Bounty Hunter can complain about how they're a target despite not actually being Imperial). Lampshaded by all the classes.
-->'''Imperial PC''': I like assassinating assassins. They always look so surprised.

** In ''Five Hundred Years After'', Khaavren survives no less than four attempts on his life as conspirators try to kill him to destabilize the Imperial court. The latter three attempts are thwarted by friends and allies who [[BigDamnHeroes show up just in time]].

* [[HonorHarrington Honor Harrington]] survived a number of assassination attempts, but the one most applicable is from ''Field of Dishonor'' when an assassin who acts openly--he's a professional duelist hired to maneuver his target into making a challenge--kills Honor's lover and then faces her. Due to a personal grudge, he intends to kill her slowly with non-fatal shots before the kill shot. He never gets a single round off before he's gut-shot himself and then [[BoomHeadshot finished off]].

* In ''{{ComicBook/Hitman}}'' this happens almost constantly, usually but not always to Tommy, Natt, and Ringo. It helps that the three of them are all *also* assassins, and Tommy and Ringo specifically are the two deadliest assassins in Gotham-freaking-city. Attempted assassins include but are not limited to: idiot Gotham wannabe assassins, a few dozen ninjas, hundreds of mafia thugs, Johnny Navarone, large chunks of the CIA, super fast mutant cowboys, an SAS hit-squad (though Tommy and Natt get out of that more because of luck and internal strife in the squad than anything else), a ten-armed demon from Hell, {{Lobo}}, Benito Gallo, and Johnny's son Marc Navarone. Among others.

* Attempts have been made on SilverSable's life several times by her ex-husband, the A-list assassin the Foreigner; she in turn, has made just as many attempts on his. Apparently, they both consider this some sort of "game".

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', if you piss off the NCR or Caesar's Legion enough, they'll start sending hit squads after you. Given that the fastest way to piss them off is to kill a bunch of their guys, there's no points for guessing how much of a chance the guys in the hit squads have. Doesn't take long before they start becoming little more than self-delivering loot.
