* One of these appeared during a montage of various gimmicky hitmen sent to kill ComicBook/ThePunisher. Frank just gets behind him ad pushes him into a subway train.

* In the 2007 ''Film/ThreeTenToYuma'', Ben Wade is noted as a startlingly fast draw. He even [[spoiler:beats out all six members of his gang at the end of the movie at the same time]].

* Jotaro Kujo of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders'', being partially based on the likeness of John Wayne, has this trope as his primary set of powers, and even namedrops it in his final battle with DIO. His default pose when manifesting Star Platinum is with his hand at his hip, and indeed he is capable of striking from a neutral position faster than most villains can even perceive. [[spoiler:This is taken even further once he discovers his ability to stop time, at which point he can strike in literally no time at all.]]

* In Creator/SergioLeone's SpaghettiWestern comedy ''Film/MyNameIsNobody'', Henry Fonda's character Jack Beauregard matches the trope better than Nobody. While nobody knows Nobody, everyone recognizes Beauregard, who is always having to deal with people who want to kill the fastest gun in the west,[[spoiler: even when having a shave]], and if Nobody is faster than you, you must be the fastest, right??!!

* The title character of ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'', who, as pictured in the page image, is faster than his own shadow. Fortunately for his enemies, he is also quite a fan of BlastingItOutOfTheirHands.
** He takes this one step further, apparently able to ''reload'' faster than his own shadow too.
* Hurricane, a Western villain in the MarvelUniverse, has this an actual superpower. He has superspeed but can no longer run due to an ankle injury. It still leaves him with a lightning-fast draw.

* Several characters in Creator/SergioLeone westerns, but particularily Harmonica in ''Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest''. Slightly subverted in the first scene: Harmonica manages to draw his gun and to shoot three men ''who had already their guns in their hands'' in a row... and then one of them manages to shoot him back before collapsing (interestingly, these three men should originally have been played by Creator/ClintEastwood, Creator/LeeVanCleef and Creator/EliWallach, the three [[FastestGunInTheWest fastest guns in the West]] of ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'').

* In Creator/SergioLeone's SpaghettiWestern comedy ''Film/MyNameIsNobody'', the title character Nobody is the fastest gun in the West. He could fire three shots so that the bandits heard only one, and could draw and reholster his gun after letting go of a saddle on his shoulder before the saddle could slide. and he does this several times in a row, too, causing the bad guys' eyes to go popping out of their heads.

However, [[ThePerilsOfBeingTheBest this fearsome reputation tends to bring unwanted attention]]. Every two-bit varmint in the state wants to take a piece outta this guy to make themselves more {{badass}}. Hence, the Fastest Gun In The West tends to have to [[WalkingTheEarth keep]] [[TheDrifter travelling]] to try and find a place where nobody wants to fight them.
