* Deconstructed with the MCU version of Series/LukeCage. Cage has impenetrable skin that bullets, blades, and other objects can't penetrate. However, only his skin is invincible, so when a weapon with enough concussive force is used against him, he can receive internal injuries. The impact from a shotgun pressed directly against him causes massive internal injuries and bleeding, which then can't be treated by conventional means because there's no way to get through his skin.
** When a bullet made of Chitauri metal ''did'' pierce his skin, his HealingFactor made it incredibly difficult to get it out, leading to him getting an acid bath along with some salt and boiling it to weaken his skin enough to cut it and get the fragments out of him.

* A positively eerie RealLife example is UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington. According to certain tales one of the Indian chiefs was convinced the man was picked by Heaven itself for its tasks precisely ''because'' no bullet ever fired at him ever seemed to leave more than a hole in his clothes.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', the titular creatures are ''highly'' resistant to standard weaponry. To counter this, the [[TheHunter CCG]] uses [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells Quinque Steel]] ammunition to take down {{Mooks}}, though even these are ineffective against stronger ghouls. This point is driven home in the sequel, when [[spoiler: Marude shoots Yoshitoki Washuu in the face. He gets back up almost immediately, with the bullet embedded into his forehead]].

* ''Series/ForeverKnight'': Nick is often shot in the line of duty, but since he's a vampire he quickly recovers. He'll often use this to his advantage as well by making himself a shield for other people who wouldn't be able to survive it otherwise.
