* The 20th century outlaw Nikola Šuhaj - at least according to the book ''Nikola Šuhaj loupežník'' (''Nikola the Outlaw'') by Ivan Olbracht - reputedly possessed a charm that protected him from being shot. In the end, he was betrayed by some of his companions and killed ... with an axe.

** The creature in question basically has no vial organs; it's nervous, circulation, even assimilation systems are decentralized. If you wanted to kill it quickly you would have to ''grind it into hamburger''.

* ''{{Literature/Animorphs}}'': In ''Megamorphs #3'', [[spoiler:the kids are transported to an alternate universe D-Day, where to their surprise they find that bullets won't kill them. They get put in huge pain for a second, then the next second they're fine. Ax deduces that this is because of the deal that Ellimist made with Crayak to allow their time travel: that one of the Animorphs would die, but ''only one'']].

Immune to Bullets is when a character cannot be killed with conventional ammunition, whatever "conventional" happens to mean for the show in question. Frequently, the script requires the [[LemmingCops police]] / [[RedShirtArmy army]] /whatever to demonstrate this with FiveRoundsRapid. This is especially bad news when it's the MonsterOfTheWeek who is immune, as opposed to our [[TheHero friendly protagonist]].

{{Zombie|Apocalypse}}s, {{mumm|y}}ies, and various other film monsters are routinely depicted as subject to penetration by bullets, but (especially if they are undead) not having a central nervous or circulatory system that can be critically injured by them. They have what is sometimes called "suspension of disbelief" damage limits. That is, they can [[IWillFightSomeMoreForever take bullet after bullet]], usually in spectacularly gory fashion, until their body is so damaged the audience will no long believe it can keep functioning.

** Harder drugs can cause one to behave as if immune to bullets. Of course, when the drugs wear off, you're gonna be feeling those wounds.

* In "Literature/TheTwoBrothers", collected by Creator/TheBrothersGrimm, the younger brother is captured by a witch. The elder brother goes to his rescue and threatens to shoot the witch, but she laughs and tells him bullets can't hurt her. She's right -- at least until he gives up on lead and improvises some SilverBullets, which are ''much'' more effective.

* ''Everyone'' in ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Most obvious when Cell ''annihilates'' an entire army ''[[OneManArmy singlehandedly]].'' Later, Gohan catches bullets and then dramatically drops them to scare a criminal s*** less. There are many other examples in the DragonBall series, but these are the most memorable.
** The ''first chapter'' of ''Dragon Ball'', Goku proved to be this as he shrugged off a headshot by Bulma's handgun, like a bee sting. Subverted later on when Goku is shot in the chest by General White and actually appears to be hurt. It is explicitly stated that the gun is specially made and much more powerful than other firearms.
** Upa's father is shown to be immune to bad guys's bullets due to his big and tough body.
