* Played ridiculously straight in ''Manga/BrynhildrInTheDarkness''. When [[spoiler:Chisato]] is TakingTheBullet for a fellow villain, Hexenjagd fill him with what probably is a few magazines' worth of MoreDakka. Despite showing no signs of wearing any armour, not a single shot gets through.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/LukeCage2016'': Luke himself is one, due to his unbreakable skin. In ''Series/TheDefenders2017'', we see a demonstration of this when he shields [[Series/IronFist2017 Danny Rand]] during the Midland Circle hallway fight.

*** That is actually a trope in and of itself. Any party in a prolonged war has claimed that, among them all combatants in WW1 and WW2, Forces on both sides in the American Civil war, etc.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/YouCantDoThatOnTelevision's'' firing squad sketch usually depended on this trope, as a typical outcome had the chief executioner being tricked into saying "Fire!" while standing between his men and the condemned.

* Averted in KingsmanTheSecretService. During the infamous Church Fight, [[CulturedBadAss Galahad]] stops one of the many armed churchgoers (but notably, not his bullets) using this trope. He grabs another brawling churchgoer, puts him in the path of the bullets, but ducks low so he isn't hit by the penetration. Essentially he uses the guy as momentary [[ConcealmentEqualsCover concealment]] before shoving the corpse on top of the shooter. [[ShownTheirWork If you look close you can actually see the bullets penetrating.]]
