** The Vinsmokes siblings [[spoiler: minus Sanji]] are bullet proof (as Judge happily boasts) and fire proof too as the Big Mom Pirates discovered when they shoot at Reiju, Ichiji, Niji and Yonji. [[spoiler: However it's subverted as the Big Mom family just get out a Gatling gun armed with special bullets and mow the Vinsmokes down]].

** Though ZigZagged with ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', where this trope seems to have been rolled back a bit, despite the characters essentially having the power of superheroes. In one instance, Krillin, after having given up on his training for a time while pursuing a career as a cop, took a glancing hit on the arm causing a nasty, but ultimately minor injury. Goku, who had ([[WebComicTime apparently]]) been shrugging off his own training for a time while he worked his farmlands, took a similar hit which just caused a scratch. In another instance, Goku had a hole shot through him by a specialty laser, though in this instance he had the power of ''a god'', and only moments before he had been tanking hits from an enemy who had comparable power.

Facing down a political fixer's armed bodyguards, Jessica Jones informs them that if they shoot at her, she's going to pluck the bullets from her coat and [[AssShove shove them up their asses]]. Her InternalMonologue says she's actually bluffing, though: she actually doesn't know if she's bulletproof and isn't interested in finding out.

* The Philippines had the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juramentado Juramentados]], anti-foreign Moro rebels that would subject themselves to a ritual of shaving, prayer and binding before launching themselves in suicidal attacks against foreign soldiers and policemen, with the ritual bindings acting as a torniquet and keeping them from bleeding out before killing a number of enemies. The tactic was devastating during Spanish occupation and during WorldWarII against the Japanese occupation, as both used underpowered handgun rounds to arm the officers and Filipino policemen targeted by the Juramentados, but against the Americans the only result was them bringing back the [[{{BFG}} Colt Peacemaker]], that ''could'' drop them in one shot even with the bindings, as a stopgap measure for the development of the .38 Special (in its early black powder version already more powerful than the round it replaced) and the .45 ACP.

** Parodied in the video series ''Dub Piece''.
--> '''Luffy:''' I've never heard of a balloon that... could survive a bullet...
** Also immune to bullets are Logia users, since everything passes right through them.
** However, this is averted with Seastone Bullets, which bypass Devil Fruit powers.
