Particularly [[GenreSavvy savvy]] characters might even throw their hats to [[OutfitDecoy test for booby traps]] or stick it out from cover only to pull it back in, riddled with bullets.

* In ''GetBackers'' during his first fight with Kyoji Kagami, Akabane gets his massive fedora sliced at a small point in the front, though it doesn't anger him and only serves to convince him of Kagami's worth as an opponent. The slit stays there for the rest of the series.

* The "bullet through the hat" was sort of a trademark for Dalton brothers in ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke''. This is also a plot point in one of the albums, although the Dalton brothers aren't involved.
** The "decoy hat on a stick" and the "Visited the Indians hat" are also prevalent.

* Much the same as ''Lucky Luke'' goes for''ComicBook/{{Tex}}'', though by far the most frequent is the "hat shot", which serves two purposes. If a hero does it to a villain, it's usually a show of force. When it's in reverse, it demonstrates that the good guys are either dealing with a ''really'' good shot, or the baddies of the story are [[MoreDakka employing lots and lots of flying lead all at once]]. Tex's longtime companion Kit Carson is particularly prone to get the short end of the stick on this (often leading to much grumbling on his part), though it's been known to happen to Tex himself.
