* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' had a justified example in [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E19TheDirtyHalfDozen "The Dirty Half-Dozen"]]: Skye can [[BadVibrations induce earthquake-like vibrations]], so she she just uses that on Lincoln's stopped heart.

* Doing CPR on someone who's collapsed from cyanide poisoning is 100% ''un''reliable, as getting air into their lungs or keeping their blood moving won't do any good: the toxin makes it impossible for tissues to use any oxygen this might deliver to them. Worse yet, if the cyanide was inhaled or ingested orally, attempting mouth-to-mouth could potentially cause toxic cross-contamination, and quickly ''kill the person trying to save the victim''.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'', if you choose to do a study session with Crow in Chapter 3, he teaches Rean about CPR, and then suggests that CPR on a pretty girl is a gateway to "fireworks."
-->'''Rean''': Every time I think anything positive about you, you go and say something like that...

* Spoofed in ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu''. After fishing Sousuke out of the school's pool, Tesse insists on giving him CPR. Sure, that makes sense -- Except for one thing: he's already ''breathing''. Seeing as Tesse's mostly just [[DudeShesLikeInAComa trying to take advantage of the situation for some good ol' lip-locking]], Kaname's irritated attempts to point this out don't deter her very much.

* Played for laughs in {{Weird Al}}'s music video for "Like a Surgeon," which started with him thumping a [[{{Flatline}} flatlining]] patient on the chest.

* In ''Franchise/EverAfterHigh'' Darling resuscitates [[spoiler:Apple White]] from a magic induced coma by blowing air into her mouth. It looks [[HomoeroticSubtext suspiciously more like a kiss]] than any form of CPR.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/CodeBlack'' averts this in every conceivable manner. Nobody ever tries to [[MagicalDefibrillator shock a flatline]][[labelnote:*]]You don't shock a flatline because it ''doesn't work''. Defibrillators are meant to reset an abnormal cardiac rhythm, not restore one when it no longer exists.[[/labelnote]]. Last-ditch CPR tends to involve cutting open the rib cage (usually at Center Stage) and starting internal cardiac massage, and this only works rarely, as in real life. Most situations with successful CPR involve an abnormal heart rhythm that's restored with only a few shocks, as in real life; by the time the patients are in cardiac arrest, the doctors' resuscitation efforts usually fail.

* ''Series/TheRanch'' : Colt performs CPR on a newborn ''calf'' that appears to be stillborn. Not only does he bring the animal back to life, he's so good the calf is brushed and dried of all the birth goo coating it to that point!

* CPR is performed on a drowned girl in the first episode of ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', after some brief awkwardness, but no one thinks to procure proper life support in the event she ''doesn't'' recover on her own. Naturally she does, spitting up some token water in the process,
