* In one episode of Series/{{Get Smart}}, Max and a Kaos agent are fighting over the agent's gun. When the gun goes off, Max says, "Hold it! I think one of us has been shot." After a moment, the KAOS agent collapses to the floor, saying, "I think it's me."

* ''Series/{{CSI NY}}'' did a variant of this in the season 6 finale. We see Shane Casey holding Lucy with a gun in the other hand, and Lindsay going MamaBear with her own weapon. Cut away to an exterior shot and we hear the gunshot. We don't find out until the season 7 premiere that it was Casey who got shot.

* ''Series/{{Cannon}}'': In "Call Unicorn", Cannon and the villain of the week (played by Wayne Rogers) are in a GunStruggle after a truck wreck. The gun goes off, and after a moment, Cannon -- who was on top -- sits up to reveal Rogers with a non-fatal bullet wound in his chest.

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', [[spoiler: Raiden]] and [[spoiler: The President of the United States of America]] are struggling over [[spoiler: Raiden]]'s pistol, what with [[spoiler: Mr. President wanting Raiden to kill him and Raiden refusing]]. A shot rings out; the camera pans to reveal that [[spoiler: Revolver Ocelot, who before was not even in the scene, has shot the President himself]].
** Used again in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'' at the end of the game when [[spoiler: Solid Snake [[AteHisGun puts a gun in his mouth]]]], and the camera cuts away on the sound of the gunshot, presumably to spare the player from the gore. It then cuts to another scene entirely for several minutes, leaving you with the feeling that [[spoiler: Solid Snake is dead]]. As it turns out, [[spoiler: Solid Snake [[InterruptedSuicide did not kill himself]], and Big Boss, his [[LukeIAmYourFather father]], appears to meet his son for the last time]].

[[GunStruggle Two characters are struggling for a gun.]] There's brawling, rolling, clenching... Suddenly they both stop with identical looks of shock on their faces after the gun goes off, and the viewer is left to ponder for several seconds which one of the characters was shot, usually with a headfake in the direction of it not being the character who was actually injured. It can be fatal, or not. It can also be a knife or other small weapon. Extra points if it occurs right before a commercial break which leaves you hanging.

It can be fatal, or not. It can also be done with a knife or other small knife, although there are less options for targets since it's a melee weapon.

* In the first ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movie, [[spoiler: Elizabeth was running to the action, Barbossa pulled his gun on her, we hear a gunshot, Elizabeth starts... cue the camera cutting to Jack holding the smoking gun, aimed at Barbossa. The same gun he's been carrying around for ten years with no additional shot or powder specifically for that purpose.]]

* When the guardians of the Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas review [[DragonLance Raistlin's]] memories of his duel with Fistandantilus, they are unable to determine who won and stole the "life-force" of the other, but conclude that either way, the winner was before them and qualified for entrance.

* {{Egregious}}ly used in ''SaintSeiya''. The jarring part is that enemies, or the heroes themselves can go on like nothing happens for a while and then humongous holes or cracks will appear on the downed Saint/General/Spectre's cloth/scales/surplice.

* In {{Trigun}} during a gun duel between Vash and Wolfwood, the scene cuts to the audience right as both of the gunmen shoot simultaneously. When the camera pans back both are lying on the ground with blood seeping through their clothes. [[spoiler: [[BrickJoke The 'blood' was actually from smashed ketchup bottles.]]]]
