* Played straight in the classic ''Series/DoctorWho'' story "[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/DoctorWhoS14E6TheTalonsOfWengChiang The Talons of Weng-Chiang]]". A flimsy wooden table is enough to shield the protagonists from FrickingLaserBeams. The laser beams at least start punching holes through the table, though.

*** Actually enforced by the game's mechanics. Standing in a smoke-grenade cloud and hunkering down behind a waste-high chunk of concrete both give equivalent bonuses to defense.

* Played straight throughout all of ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'', but particularly notable in regards to [[BonusBoss Terramorphous The Invincible]], who is fought in a wide open arena with various outcroppings of rocks that will be destroyed over the course of the fight. There's literally nowhere you can hide for cover, except for one tiny little rock located near the exit of the arena. A player can duck behind this and Terramorphous can't shoot you, even though it clearly knows you're there and literally sees you behind it because it towers over you. If you play as Axton or Gaige, you can deploy your sentry turret or Deathtrap robot to whittle down the boss for you. Time consuming, but doable.

* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. A victim manages to hide behind a table from a burst of FN P90 high-velocity armor-piercing bullets.

* Averted in the ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' episode "RE-VIEW", when Togusa finds himself under attack by a corrupt narcotics suppression squad during his Laughing Man investigation. When a reinforced cyborg starts hunting him down, Togusa hides behind a desk. The cyborg starts shooting all over the room, and a bullet hits Togusa in the gut when it passes through the desk.

* This trope has a ''very'' slight degree of TruthInTelevision, as the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy trope page shows. It is in fact ''incredibly'' difficult to hit a person at any kind of range in the heat of a firefight (the overall success rate of hits in combat, as estimated on the page, is something like 200 rounds shot for every ''one'' hit). Being behind cover of any kind, no matter how easy it is to shoot through, will degrade anyone's marksmanship even further (provided, of course, that the amount of cover you are behind is not so small as to make it blatantly obvious exactly where you are).

* Often averted even with ''heavy armor plates''! Spalling, the phenomenon where the armor plate cracks and sprays the inside with deadly splinters when struck by a shell that fails to penetrate, has been a serious problem for armored ships and vehicles a long time. Certain weapons, such as HESH warheads, are actually designed to kill hostiles hiding behind heavy concealment through this effect.

Many vehicles incorporate a layer of soft armor such as kevlar inside the vehicle to catch any fragments before they get into the crew compartment.
