* The famous Government Lobby shootout from ''Film/TheMatrix'', is a ShoutOut to both ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' (see above) and JohnWoo movies that feature scenery getting ripped apart by gunfire.

* When RLeeErmey fired two BMG rounds at a steel plate they produced sparks when viewed in slow motion, although not at regular speed.

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' as a franchise likes its bullet holes or insane ricochets, but it is also more than happy to make bullet impacts against a wall or target into a spark. The only exceptions tended to be organic materials such as dirt, plants, and the odd rock, but even those would often throw more sparks than they rightly should. Concrete throws out a lot more bullet sparks than its composition should suggest--''Combat Evolved'' is quite bad about this in particular. This is all for the sake of the player, especially in multiplayer--it lets them know, within some reason, if their shots are hitting or missing, since shields glow when hit, and other players or enemies flinch and their armor sparks when shot.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'': Not an actual gun bullet, but a nail slung at an unrealistic speed ricochets with visible sparks, as the start of a RubeGoldbergDevice.

* The fan film ''Film/{{Grayson}}'' has this with the Joker shooting a sub-machine gun at Robin holding a thick metal plate to deflect the bullets. The effect was achieved by setting off firecrackers attached to the plate.

* Played straight to the point of exaggeration in ''FirstEncounterAssaultRecon''. Any shot fired at a metal surface will produce a fireworks-class shower of sparks, and some go flying emitting more sparks, as if the bullet just spawned in a burning magnesium strip.

* Lampshaded and [[ConversationalTroping talked about]] during the ''Literature/BattleTechExpandedUniverse'' novel ''Black Dragon,'' which opens with a HeroicBloodshed movie about a BruceLeeClone, taking place in the Battletech universe itself. The unreality of the movie is mentioned by a designated demoman, who asks if "anyone's ever seen marble spark like that." For those not aware, marble can be relatively hard or soft as minerals go, but it is uniformly ''brittle'' and would more likely shatter from a gunshot instead of spark.

* ''CallOfDuty: ModernWarfare 2'' uses this as part of a game mechanic - weapons equipped with the "FMJ" attachment, which allows them to penetrate thicker surfaces, make obvious spark-showers when shot at walls and whatnot as a visual indication that they have the attachment.
