* Din gets used as one during the final battle of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons''. Attacking her shocks you, so you have to use the Rod of Seasons to knock her away. [[spoiler: Or you could just transfer a Green Holy Ring (which grants immunity to electricity) over from ''Oracle of Ages'' and ignore her completely.]]

** When Luffy uses his Gomu Gomu no Baloon to bounce one of Buggy's town-destroying cannonballs back, Buggy and Cabaji use ''their own men'' as shields to take the brunt of the explosion.
** To show jus what [[AristocratsAreEvil kind of people]] the Vinsmokes are, they have a technique called, "Shield" where one of their men will automatically ''leap in front'' of them to take whatever blow is coming their way.

* ''TheBourneConspiracy'' allows you to more subtly use a human shield when engaged in melee - enemies with fire discipline will cease fire if you put a friendly between you and them. Enemies ''without'' fire discipline use the BulletproofHumanShield trope instead.

* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4'' has the last terrorist grab the anonymous [=VIP=] as a shield at the end of ''Mile High Club''. The player has a few seconds to shoot one of his exposed body parts as he jerks around, and if you're playing on the hardest difficulty, you have to go for the headshot.

* At the end of ''DirtyHarry'' the AxCrazy Scorpio Killer uses a boy as a human shield. Detective Callahan simply shoots him in the shoulder (given the range and the fact that the boys was too small to provide a lot of protection, Callahan could've put a bullet in Scorpio's chest). Callahan then proceeds to give Scorpio one last chance to surrender, and then puts a bullet through him.
** And in ''The Enforcer'' the terrorist leader tries using the Mayor as a human shield, dragging him up a guard tower on Alcatraz. Fortunately the Mayor refuses to go all the way up the ladder, enabling Dirty Harry to blow the terrorist up with a LAWS rocket.

* In WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}, [[GeneralFailure Zapp]] does this with [[BeleagueredAssistant Kif]] when some aliens hold them at gun point. Kif is so lightweight that Zapp easily picks him up and holds him in the air.
