* Much the same as ''Lucky Luke'' goes for''ComicBook/{{Tex}}'', though by far the most frequent is the "hat shot", which serves two purposes.

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.
