* Played with in the ''Wiki/SCPFoundation''. Most of the [=SCPs=] are fought with mundane, albeit powerful weapons: for example, [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-076 SCP-076]] is contained with what's heavily implied to be a Phoenix CIWS (basically, a computer-guided 20mm gatling gun used to shoot down antiship missiles), and it's working so far. However, the fact that [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-096 SCP-096]] appears to be immune to everything up to [=AT4=] antitank missiles doesn't stop them from chasing it down and trying to kill it with a sniper rifle when things go wrong.

* Tanks in RedOrchestra aren't particularly fussed by small arms. Doesn't stop players taking potshots at the hull. [[Subverted Sometimes they'll hit a crew member looking through a vision slit.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Many RTS games will have players doing this, especially if they involve TacticalRockPaperScissors in some way. Infantry might do half damage to tanks, but they're [[WeHaveReserves cheap]] to replace.
** ElementalRockPaperScissors has the same effect. Fire type does half damage to water type? [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer I guess if it's all that's available...]]

* This tends to be the Enforcers' solution to whatever the problem is in ''SwatKats''.

* In ''GeneratorRex'', Providence takes down [=EVOs=] by shooting at them with guns from regular Providence grunts. And, sometimes, heavier weaponry. It is implied several times that they are good at what they do. They seem limited when Rex usually has to come in and save everybody.

* Captain Fanzone's attempting approach to fighting Professor Sumdac's roach monster in the pilot episode of ''TransformersAnimated''. When bullets don't work, he tries rockets. The monster just absorbs them. Luckily, they are soon saved by alien shipwreck survivors -- the Autobots.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom''; Irina and her men tries to kill Koro-sensei by using machine guns instead of airsoft guns. It doesn't work, since Koro-sensei's body dissolves lead but is blown to chunks by airsoft bullets [[AppliedPhlebotinum made of a special material]].

* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', the Asset Containment Unit and InGen Security troopers are mostly equipped with assault rifles and shotguns which seem rather inadequate for killing 40 foot long genetically engineered monsters, and barely cause any damage to the ''I. Rex''. The M134 minigun and an AT4 missile launcher might have taken her out if they hadn't missed in the chaotic combat conditions, and it seems like the disaster could have been mitigated if management had had the foresight to stock more of those high caliber and explosive weapons.
