* In the first ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'', all Zombie-type enemies are completely immune to gunfire. Worse, some enemies ''reflect'' bullets.

to:

* All ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games with a Gun element have demons that resist, nullify, reflect, or are healed by gun damage, though with it being fairly rare. Later games tend to let humans have access to these types of abilities as well, though in ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' humans are weak to gun damage, no exceptions.

** Cape buffalo. If you're hunting them, bring something [[{{BFG}} fired by lanyard]]. Pretty much anything bigger than Bambi on the African continent will kill you before it goes down if you're [[TooDumbToLive careless]]. The buffalo are just notable in that they're [[AlwaysChaoticEvil mindlessly aggressive]] and [[ImplacableMan ludicrously difficult to kill]].

** Subverted in the FinalBattle: [[spoiler:God!Father]] can block bullets rather easily and regenerate from them quickly but he still has to ''make a conscious effort'' to block them and is momentarily incapacitated by the injury, which is enough for some soldiers to divert his attention to [[BigDamnHeroes save]] several major characters by just firing artillery and bullets at him.

* While they're rarely ever used, guns have a hit-or-miss relationship with the characters of [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure]]. One of its bigger bads, Dio Brando, is generally depicted as being affected by bullets (that is, if they can hit), but being a vampire he can regenerate. A more solid example would be with Kars of the Pillar Men. So fine is his control of his own body, he can harden his flesh so that bullets bounce off. [[spoiler:And this is before he ascends to the power of a perfect organism.]] When it comes to most other characters, though, bullets can feasibly work; again, assuming they actually connect. Jotaro Kujo can catch bullets with his stand, and other character have stands that can similarly block or intercept such projectiles. It's largely for this reason that guns are rarely used. That, and because it would be too easy.

** While they're not immune to them if they get hit, attempting to attack a Jedi/Dark Jedi/Sith with a blaster is not only typically fruitless unless the plot demands it, but is in fact counterproductive. This is because they not only block blaster bolts with their lightsabers, but often reflect them back at the person that shot them. Reflecting blasterfire has become the effective primary purpose of the lightsaber when the Sith aren't around, with entire styles of saber fighting designed around it.
*** This is averted however in the comic book ''Star Wars Infinities'' - in the alternate retelling of ''The Empire Strikes Back'', [[spoiler: Darth Vader is killed when fired upon by Han Solo.]]

* The 80s film, ''Film/ManiacCop'' had as the main villain of the movie as cop who murders people and is immune to all gunfire. The funny thing is, the movie isn't supernatural and explains that [[spoiler: the cop was once sent to prison for crime he never committed. While in there, he was so badly beaten and abused by the other inmate, for obvious reasons, that he lost of the nerves in the body that give him the feeling of pain. Upon being stabbed and left for dead in the prison bathroom, he later awoke, somehow alive, and wanted revenge for what happened...which he did by murdering innocent people. Kinda defeats the purpose.]] Although in reality this explanation makes no sense (bullets are deadly not because they hurt, but because they put holes in parts of the body that can't function when holes are put in them), and relies heavy on the audience forgetting about real world logic and going along with the movie's train of thought.

* In the original ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperman'' TV series, villains would always shoot at Superman's massive chest, the bullets bouncing off, and then throw the gun at his head -- and he would duck. This reflected the fact that the bullets were just special effects, but the gun was a solid prop. This is spoofed in ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' when several bank robbers are shooting at Franchise/WonderWoman who deflects the bullets. They empty their clips and one gets ready to throw the gun at her when she sarcastically comments "Yeah, like that's gonna work." This was also spoofed during Peter David's run on Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}. A bunch of mook villains were firing at Supergirl; when they ran out of bullets one threw his gun at her. Instead of ducking or the gun bouncing off of her, she fell over much to the shock of the mooks. After a beat she jumped back up again and said "I always wanted to do that" before dealing with the mooks.

* In the ''AtomicRobo'' RPG, "bulletproof" is an explicit benefit that "mega-stunts" (more powerful than stunts allowed to mere mortals at the cost of giving the {{game master}} more fate points to use to mess with the {{player character}}s) can provide; it also renders the character proof against less powerful attacks that aren't literally bullets, although it comes with a mandatory cost or weakness. For example, as in the comics, Robo's own "Just Guns?" mega-stunt makes him bulletproof -- and provides him with an armor rating against heavier weapons, too -- but leaves him vulnerable to strong electromagnetism.
