* In Creator/EugeneONeill'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.

This trope is is about getting revenge, but it's not enough to simply get revenge. This is a special case. So special that not just any old bullet will do. No, the bullet Alice uses (or even the ''gun'' she uses) must be related to the reason Bob must die. Bonus points if the bullet [[MarkedBullet has Bob's name inscribed on it]]. It's not uncommon for Alice to craft the bullet from special materials as well.

* ''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.]]
