* The shotguns in the ''SyphonFilter'' games do this, in fact you use one to knock the second game's FinalBoss [[HelicopterBlender into a helicopter rotor]].

* Partially justified and subverted in the first episode of ''TheBoondocks''. 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.

Resal archive footage from WW 2
Added DiffLines:
* 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.

* ''{{Blame}}" has a reversal of this trope. Whenever Killy fires the Graviton Beam Emitter, he gets blown back by the recoil, while the GBE beam punches clean through whatever it hits.

Added DiffLines:
* The TV series ''Fargo'' appears to run on this trope as well, with characters who get hit by shotgun blasts flying backwards as if being jerked by wires.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}}'' also averts this, but includes a similar (optional) rule. It's even named "''Hollywood'' table of over-acting", or something similar.

Additionally, in a hand-held firearm the shooter or weapon must deal with a backward force equal to the force of the projectile being fired; in a non-recoiless operation like a movie small arm, this would mean the gun would hit the shooter with enough force to also throw ''him'' fifteen feet into the air on firing, with the addition of all the energy the bullet lost due to friction on the way to the target. The LawOfInverseRecoil tends to be in full effect regarding this.[[note]]Except for that one scene in ''Film/MenInBlack''.[[/note]]
