[[AC:Web Comics]] * ''WebComic/SluggyFreelance'': Bun-bun once remarks that "it would be wrong to plug [[SantaClaus Santa]] with bullets that didn't have the name 'Lard-Butt' inscribed on 'em!" Yes, he tries to kill Santa Claus, every year for the first several years of the comic. He's a bad bunny.

* In the first issue of the SecretSix miniseries, Deadshot promises Lady Vic that he will save a bullet so that when he does shoot her "it will be like no time has passed at all." Four years later, in the penultimate arc of the ongoing series, Deadshot shoots Lady Vic despite running out of ammo earlier in the issue, indicating that he had been saving the bullet the whole time and [[RevengeBeforeReason didn't use it to save his own life.]]

* In Eugene O'Neill's play ''TheEmperorJones'', the tyrant Brutus Jones flees into the forest but is convinced that he is NighInvulnerable and can only be killed by a special silver bullet that he possesses. He would [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled rather kill himself with it than be captured]], but LaResistance ultimately kills him -- yes, with a silver bullet.

* ''ThePatriot'': Benjamin Martin melts down some lead soldiers that belonged to his dead son Thomas in order to make bullets when he starts fighting against the British. The final one of these is dedicated to Colonel Tavington, the EvilBrit who murdered said son. [[spoiler:It doesn't do the job]]. * ''LethalWeapon'': Riggs tells his new partner Murtaugh that he has a special bullet picked out in case he ever decides to kill himself (which he thinks about every day). At the end of the film, [[spoiler: he gives Murtaugh the bullet as a symbol that he's come to terms with his inner demons and no longer suicidal]]. The bullet is stated to be a hollow-point, to minimise the odds of botching the job [[note]]but it looks like a full metal jacket round[[/note]].

* In ''Run For The Sun'' a writer (Richard Widmark) keeps a rifle cartridge as a lucky piece. During WW II an enemy soldier had him at gunpoint but the gun misfired. He took out the soldier and kept the bullet because it "... had his name on it." He finds another use for it [[spoiler: In a much copied scene he pushes the cartridge though a bullet hole in a door and then fires it by hitting the primer with a nail and a rock. It goes off and kills his enemy on the other side of the door.]]

->''"When a pirate's marooned, [[LeaveBehindAPistol he's a given a pistol with a single shot.]] One shot. Well, that won't do much good hunting or to be rescued. But after three weeks of a starving belly and thirst, that pistol [[DrivenToSuicide will start to look real friendly]]. But Jack escaped the island, and he still has that single shot. Oh, he won't use it, though, save on one man: [[TheStarscream His mutinous first mate]]."''
