** In the ''Heaven's Feel'' route Shirou suffers a self-inflicted version after he receives [[spoiler:Archer's arm as a transplant]]. Due to its presence blades begin erupting from within his body, simultaneously slowly killing him while replacing parts too damaged to continue functioning. In the final fight with [[spoiler:Kirei]] he only has to protect his head because a blow anywhere else on his body will shred the enemy's fist.

* ''The13thWarrior'': one of the vikings gets about a half dozen spears (!) stuck in his chest and back before finally keeling over. * ''TimeBandits'': A bunch of medieval knights with crossbows fire a glut of AnnoyingArrows at Ultimate Evil. In response, he whips his red cloak around himself and turns himself into a literal pincushion. When he bounces down, he fires the arrows back at his would-be killers.

* ''BrutalLegend'': The Tainted Coil's Punishing Party unit in Brutal Legend consists of several Dominatrices and the Slave. The Slave is a big demon with a truckload of arrows, swords, and other pointy objects stuck in his body. Punishing Party's basic attack is tearing out a projectile from the Slave's flesh and hurling it at the enemies. * ''DungeonSiege'': Particularly visible throughout the series and downright ridiculous in "winter" areas, where opponents tend to use large ice shards instead of arrows.
