** Averted in "How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters". Bobby Singer dives into a van, which is fired on by Dick Roman with a Colt .45 revolver. The Winchesters breath a sigh of relief over another narrow escape...only to realise Bobby hasn't responded.

** Surprisingly, they discovered if you could hold your breath, about 3 feet of water is good cover for modern high speed firearms. The best performer was a musket.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' averts this with ArmorPiercingAttack that can penetrate some cover. In fact, with enough penetration enhancements it is possible to shoot clean through the floor or walls (though only the geth multiplayer characters really benefit from this: in Hunter Mode they can see enemies through solid objects).

Oh, and penetration enhancements stack, so if you've got a gun with innate penetration ability equipped with a gun mod that improves penetration, you can shoot further through cover. In multiplayer mode, it's possible to, with the right combination of gun, gun mods, and ammunition, to have a sniper rifle that can send a bulleth through more than ''six meters'' worth of cover and still have enough power to kill a human. And if a gun can shoot through cover, [[OneHitPolykill it can shoot through enemies]].

* Averted in ''Film/TheProfessional''. Matilda's little brother runs from the corrupt DEA agents, one of them starts spraying through the wall with a gun and manages to hit him. Later, when the police try to storm Leon's and Matilda's hideout, the bullets go through the wall, which makes the situation rather sticky for those inside.
