* On ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' three teenage boys were drinking and smoking pot when one of them started showing off his father's heirloom katana. This is dangerous already given their inebriated state but then one of the other boys decides to show off his late father's police revolver. The gun was apparently stored loaded and when the third boy grabs it, it discharges and the first boy is fatally shot in the stomach.

* In the ''Literature/StonesOfPower'' series, Jon Shannow's silent raid on a Hellborn camp suddenly goes awfully noisy when one of his allies (who, to be fair, had never handled a gun before) tries to cock a stolen pistol while simultaneously squeezing the trigger.

When it may not have been accidental, it is UnfriendlyFire. When there is no effect, it is FriendlyFireproof.

* ''Film/PulpFiction''. The {{Trope Namer|s}}. Vincent Vega (Creator/JohnTravolta), an "experienced hitman," is talking with Marvin, a guy he and Jules picked up in the aftermath of their hit near the beginning of the movie, in the backseat of Jules's car. While speaking with Marvin, Vincent is not only casually waving his handgun in the air, not only ''resting his finger on the trigger'', but '''lays his wrist on the back of the seat with the barrel pointed directly at Marvin's head'''[[note]] One wonders why Marvin didn't freak out when he can easily ''see'' all of this[[/note]]. So, when something happens (Vincent claims it was a bump, Jules claims the car "didn't hit no motherfuckin' bump"; it's also probable Vincent just twitched his finger), the gun goes off, the bullet hits Marvin in the face and not only blows his brains all over the rear window, but splatters gore all over the inside of the car, including on both Vincent and Jules. Thus it is demonstrated to everyone in the audience just ''why'' you should always watch where you're pointing your weapon and, perhaps more importantly, keep your finger away from the trigger unless you intend to shoot wherever the gun points (oh, and let us ''not'' forget the safety catch). While the shooting does become a major plot point, Vincent's initially only-mildly perturbed reaction to his mistake while Jules is practically screaming at him over it is [[BlackComedy one of the funniest moments]] of the movie, making the {{Trope Namer|s}} a less strict version of this trope. See the scene in question [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBBni_-tMNs here]]. Note that to top it all off, even ''after'' shooting Marvin in the face Vincent STILL does not take his finger off the trigger.
