* Actual battle footage from WW2 (as opposed to propaganda re-enactments) supports the contention that men hid by bullets will generally just drop in their tracks. WW2 documentary ''Series/TheWorldAtWar'' took pains to source genuine combat footage; images from the battle of Stalingrad show Russian and German soldiers simply slumping down when hit, or at most registering a jerk of possible surprise. Footage deemed too demoralising to show in the USA, of American marines hit during beach assaults in the Pacific, shows the same effect.
* Creator/ChristopherLee once criticized this trope, while working on the set of an action movie. He had been involved in black ops in WW2 and knew first-hand what happened to a person when they got shot. The crew asked him to demonstrate, so "I put an expression of mild surprise on my face and sank to my knees with great dignity", which caused everyone watching to burst out laughing.

* In ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'', Elle's [[LimitBreak ultimate]] fires a very wide-ranging and damaging shell that also blasts all its targets away several spaces... Including Elle from the recoil.

* ''{{Spacetrawler}}''. While spacewalking, [[http://spacetrawler.com/2010/07/27/spacetrawler-62/ Pierrot fires a gun]] and the recoil makes him go tumbling off into space. In the comments below the comic, author Chris Baldwin admits that the recoil shouldn't have been ''that'' bad, [[RuleOfFunny but humor overrode accuracy]].

* Partially justified and subverted in the first episode of ''WesternAnimationTheBoondocks''. Riley shoots Ed Wuncler III with a SPAS-12 combat shotgun (requested by Ed to prove his body armor works) and only makes him fall backwards (albeit out a window) but sends Riley -- who is only eight -- flying backward and injures his arm.

* ''MaxPayne2'' plays this trope up as far as it will go, allowing the eponymous protagonist to ''air juggle'' enemies with his guns in BulletTime Mode, just like Dante. In one level midway through the game, you can launch a Mook standing on a ledge all the way across a construction site with a few rapid-fire M5 rounds to the back.

* Played straight in WebVideo/ShockTroopers when the [[MagicalDefibrillator defibrillators]] the soldiers are using instead of guns launches the enemy soldiers at least two stories into the air (with no recoil, either!). Later invoked when the protagonists combine the power of two defibrillators to "boost" one of their number over a small hill.
