* In ''ComicBook/XWingSeries X-Wing: Rogue Squadron]]'', naturally the fighter pilot protagonists compete over kills. [[TheLeader Wedge Antilles]] has already racked up a ludicrous kill count before the story even starts, to the point that his fighter is painted with kill silhouettes representing ''12 squadrons each'' instead of the usual one silhouette for one kill because the support staff ran out of room on the side of his X-wing. The rest of the newly-reconstituted Rogue Squadron are fresh recruits to New Republic Starfighter Command and compete among each other for the unofficial title of "best ''new'' pilot" since trying to catch up with Wedge would be futile; though some of them have piloting experience outside the military (one as a [[SpacePolice space cop]], two as {{bounty hunter}}s, one as a Rebel-affiliated mercenary), only kills as Rogue Squadron members are counted for the competition. The top scores at the end of the book are 22 kills for Bror Jace and 21 for protagonist Corran Horn.

** Comes up again in ''Wraith Squadron''. In a VirtualRealityTrainingSimulation early on, a rule designed to encourage teamwork is invoked that gives credit for any kills to the pilot's wingman... which means Kell Tainer's "instant ace" five kills is given to "Runt" Ekwesh, whose BloodKnight tendency got him shot down early in the scenario. There's then a minor RunningGag where Kell doesn't manage to get ''any'' air-to-air kills for the entire rest of the book... until the final battle where he becomes an real-life instant ace, and [[BookEnds makes a crack about Runt getting his kills again]].

** James Gandolfini did research for his role in ''InTheLoop'' by going to the Pentagon and talking to some of the generals there; he encountered one who ''couldn't remember'' if he'd killed anyone. The writers turned it into a comedic moment between Gandolfini's character and Malcolm Tucker.

* [[ColdSniper Snipers]]. Simo Häyhä has the largest body count ever, standing at 705 confirmed kills, all of which he scored in a war that lasted less than a hundred days. The next best, Francis Pegahmagabow, had 378 kills. Which like aircraft is more about keeping track of how many enemy forces are left for the spotter to find out if it is safe to go in yet or not. Snipers keep detailed notes about every kill.
