* 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.

* 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.

* Played straight in Creator/SandyMitchell's ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}: Literature/CiaphasCain'' novel ''The Traitor's Hand'', where the sergeant commanding a squad of Valhallan soldiers orders his men to fire on a World Eaters Chaos Space Marine, shouting "Big red thing, five rounds rapid!" It's implied that if the squad had all managed to connect they probably would have killed the Marine, but he's a Marine and thus leaps directly over the two meter tall Cain at a speed the Guardsmen are unprepared for. Other instances of lasgun fire against Marines tend to play it straighter. It will be interesting to see how Cain's laspistol fares in the upcoming ''Emperor's Finest'' when starring opposite bolters.

An important part of this trope is that, in almost all cases, the good guys will only ever use small arms fire. Rockets, tanks, air support, artillery -- all the things the military is known for -- are hardly ever involved (unless the monster is a {{Kaiju}}, {{Robeast}}, or similarly [[GiantEqualsInvincible gigantic]]). Not only are they more expensive for the producers to incorporate in to the film/show, in most cases, they might actually work, thereby stealing the thunder of the heroes of the story.
