* In ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', Clark and other Kryptonians, obviously, although Clark likes to {{dodge|TheBullet}} or [[BulletCatch catch]] 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 he's bored.
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 Creator/PeterDavid'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.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}''
** The Haxil Beast was a subversion: Early in the episode, Angel is looking up addresses for shooting ranges. Wesley then comments "Guns can kill it? Well, that ''does'' make things easier!" Even though it turns out that the monster itself is either immune or highly resistant to bullets, it gets brought down anyway when Wesley uses a gun to [[spoiler:shoot a tank of liquid helium that Angel had thrown at it, freezing the monster, which is then shattered by blunt force]].
** Another episode has Wes shoot at the [[BigBad Beast]] (who is apparently MadeOfIndestructium) [[MoreDakka repeatedly for a long time]] before running out of ammo and realizing it's not going to work. The same melee also featured axes, swords, crossbow bolts, wooden stakes; [[TheWorfEffect everything that Team Angel could throw at it to no avail]].
** A demon mob boss from ''The Prodigal'' was unharmed by gunfire, but not to the swing of an axe.
** After a woman is possessed by an EldritchAbomination, [[StakingTheLovedOne Wesley swings an axe at her neck]]. The blade shatters on her skin and she doesn't even notice the blow. Bullets have no effect either, thanks to her ability to slow down time.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** The Judge boasted that no weapon forged could stop him. The last time he got taken out, an army had to be brought to bear and most of them died. However, Xander figured out that the term was descriptive, not proscriptive, and that weapons technology had come a long way since then. The Judge gets one-shotted into a million pieces by a rocket launcher, effectively putting him down (sure the pieces were twitching, but they ain't doing much else).
** Vampires can't be killed by bullets. [[ImmortalityHurts That said, they do hurt a lot.]]
** Or immune to crossbow bolts, in Glory's case.

** One of the more marked examples, however, are with the new series Daleks. Daleks were already armored enough to withstand bullets [[GoForTheEye unless you aimed for the eyestalk]], but as first seen in "Dalek", they take this a step further with a shielding system that makes bullets ''disappear'' just before they even reach their casings.
** Time Lords are apparently immune to regular bullets [[MercyInvincibility in the first few hours after regenerating]], as lampshaded in "Let's Kill Hitler" [[spoiler: by Mels. "Tip for you all: never shoot a girl while she's regenerating!"]]
* In the ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' episode "Sleeper", the sleeper agents emitted a field that made them invulnerable to needles, scalpels and bullets - none could break their skin. However, by the end of the story, Torchwood had deactivated it, allowing them to fall to bullets.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' (and later series) used this for the Borg, who would become immune to a particular phaser setting after the first (or sometimes second or third) time one of them was shot with it. Despite phaser immunities, the Borg were not actually immune to bullets, and actual firearms were quite effective against them. As was, surprisingly enough, melee combat with simple metal blades.
** Technically, since the incident in question was on the holodeck, they were bullet-shaped force fields.
** Worf chopping off a Borg's arm and tying his damaged suit shut with the severed wires in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''.
** The changelings from ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' are a race of intelligent slimes who can assume the form of other creatures or objects. Since they have no organs, they are immune to bullets, being stabbed, or blunt trauma. Even if parts of the body are cut off, they revert to ooze and remerge with the rest of the body. Energy weapons, fire, and electricity are the only thing that can harm them. Even then, a shapeshifted Klingon is shown needing an absolutely obscene amount of fire poured into it to kill it.
** A similar case turned up in one of the ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' novels: The frothingly xenophobic aliens known as the Bekkir are firearms junkies, but since everyone else in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe uses energy weapons, the Bekkir developed armor (even spacecraft-grade armor) designed to reflect energy weapon beams. The only ways to affect them: captured rifles, explosives (phasers overloaded into bombs), extreme heat, or an EMP.
* ''Series/StargateSG1'':
** The series used this for Anubis' Kull Warriors, which were basically indestructible by any weapon short of a heavy artillery shell (they can't fight physics). The Tok'ra and SGC had to develop a specialized energy weapon just to fight them.
** Inverted with the Replicators, who were immune to energy weapons, but fell apart if struck by so much as a single bullet center mass. Human-form replicators play it straight, though.
** Some Goa'uld like to use energy shields that render them immune to fast-moving bullets. But not to slower-moving thrown knives.
*** However that last part might be justified in that an energy shield that prevents ALL solid objects from penetrating it might prevent said Goa'uld from being able to partake in certain activities that are essential to life, such as eating, without deactivating the shield as demonstrated by Rodney [=McKay=] in the Atlantis episode "Hide and Seek".
*** The same idea was used in Dune, which is why learning to knife-fight was such a big deal in that universe.
* The Wraith in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' were first introduced as functionally Immune To Bullets due to their HealingFactor. After a season or so, however, VillainDecay set in, and now Wraith soldiers die just as easily as any other enemy Mook from a burst of P90 fire. {{Justified|Trope}} in that it was explicitly stated that their regeneration is based upon how long ago it was that they fed.

Since they have no organs, they are immune to bullets, being stabbed, or blunt trauma. Even if parts of the body are cut off, they revert to ooze and remerge with the rest of the body. Energy weapons, fire, and electricity are the only thing that can harm them. Even then, a shapeshifted Klingon is shown needing an absolutely obscene amount of fire poured into it to kill it.
** A similar case turned up in one of the ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' novels: The frothingly xenophobic aliens known as the Bekkir are firearms junkies, but since everyone else in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe uses energy weapons, the Bekkir developed armor (even spacecraft-grade armor) designed to reflect energy weapon beams. The only ways to affect them: captured rifles, explosives (phasers overloaded into bombs), extreme heat, or an EMP.



* Almost every monster in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' is immune to normal bullets. The only thing shooting reliably (if it isn't salt or silver) does is piss the monster off.
* The Visitors in ''Series/{{V 1983}}'' wore [[JustifiedTrope body armor]] to ward off small-calibre weapons fire. However, the Resistance eventually gets better ammo that can punch through while Donovan has a stolen energy pistol that is effective as well.



* Deconstructed with the MCU version of Series/LukeCage. Luke 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.
** In ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', the impact from Jessica firing a shotgun pressed directly against his neck in an attempt to break Kilgrave's control over 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. Claire has to insert the needle through his eye socket to drain the fluid that builds up.
** In [[Series/LukeCage2016 Luke's own show]], the first type of bullet that can penetrate Luke's skin comes along - the Judas, made of Chitauri metal with a bit of time-delayed explosives. When Diamondback shoots him with them, the HealingFactor makes it incredibly difficult for Claire to get it out, forcing Claire to take Luke all the way back to the doctor who supervised the original experiment that gave Luke his powers, then douse him in an acid bath along with some salt and boil it to weaken his skin enough to cut it and get the fragments out of him.
* ''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.

* That classic 50's schlock monster, ''Film/TheBlob1958'' is one of the most famous examples of this trope. The Blob wasn't just immune to bullets; it was also invincible to anything. If bullets ever affected the Blob, it would just become pissed off. [[spoiler: [[KillItWithIce Turns out that cold was its only weakness.]]]]
* In ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'', villagers and policemen try to stop the Monster with bullets, to no avail.

--> '''Mortis (cop zombie):''' You're just jealous, that's all!
** This leads to a scene near the end of film that has two zombies firing each other with submachineguns, to no effect.

it's pointless unless virtually useless and Pinhead just spits out the heroes bullets, asking him if they can now talk sensibly.
* The immortals in ''Franchise/{{Highlander}}'' can be perforated by bullets, but this won't
kill them individually, them. Using guns to take down your opponent long enough to chop his head off is explicitly against the rules, and only truly reprehensible characters attempt it.
** In one case, an immortal who's somewhere between VigilanteMan and WellIntentionedExtremist points out that he could use his high-powered gun to blow [=MacLeod=]'s head off. [=MacLeod=] responds with "but you won't", and the two draw their swords and fight by the "rules".
** Also, whether using guns in their duels is explicitly ''prohibited''
or are merely considered dishonorable or unsporting by most immortals in unclear. After all, "The Game" had its rules set up long before guns were invented. And even the most vile immortals follow the prohibition against killing on holy ground (for example, waiting ''centuries'' for an enclosed space.immortal monk to leave his monastery before killing him), but some have no problem "cheating" with guns and other non-melee weapons.
** It may be one of the Rules, but it's not entirely accurate to say that at least some Immortals won't bend or even break the prohibition about killing on Holy Ground; in ''Film/HighlanderIIITheSorcerer'' requisite baddie, the Immortal Kane, attacks Macleod in a former Buddhist shrine - on Holy Ground, in other words. Even assuming that he were unaware of the building's sanctified status to begin with, he shows no hesitation in his attempt to take Connor's head even ''after'' Macleod informs him of as much.
*** If it's a ''former'' shrine then it's ''no longer'' holy ground, just by definition. Nevertheless, there's still Kell (see entry under VoodooShark).



* The zombies in Japanese movie ''Versus'' seem to have greater immunity the more recently they had died. In the beginning, two zombies take a three-gun barrage of shots to the chest, but the first one only dies when the hero shoots it once (blowing out most of its torso, despite him having a pistol like the others) and the other eventually gets up and wanders away.

It takes [[spoiler:being frozen in liquid nitrogen, shattered, and then remelting]] to actually damage it, but you wouldn't know that unless you saw the director's cut ([[spoiler:its camouflaging ability starts to break down, and it gets a little melty and sticky]]); those scenes were removed from the theatrical version to present it as virtually unstoppable. It's possible that it could have withstood [[spoiler:that M-80 grenade blowing it apart]] given enough time to reform, but [[spoiler:that vat of molten iron]] got in the way...
** The T-X from ''Rise'' is pretty much completely immune to gunfire since it's a more advanced endoskeleton than the T-850 with a liquid metal exterior.
* Also averted, or downplayed in ''Film/{{Them}}''. The giant ants ''can'' be taken down by sustained small arms fire (though [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers and explosives work better]]), but there are ''so many'' giant ants that it's pointless unless the heroes can kill them individually, or are in an enclosed space.
* In Creator/HowardHawks's ''Film/TheThingFromAnotherWorld'' the titular 'Thing' is of course immune to bullets. "What do you mean guns are no good?!" a character demands.
* Averted in the ''Franchise/{{Transformers|FilmSeries}}'' series, in which the US military is quite effective, resourceful, and badass. It's the {{Obstructive Bureaucrat}}s and TheMenInBlack who cause most of the problems.
** Well, not ''quite'' averted. The special ammunition they use (sabot rounds) do ''more'' damage than normally, but aren't especially effective at bringing them down (anything less, they can shrug off or heal very quickly). This is especially evident with Brawl (i.e. the tank) in the first movie; who has dozens of rounds pumped into him, but is still on the winning end of his firefight with the military. In the end, it takes Bumblebee to come along and save their arses.
*** Somewhat referenced in the midquel comic series 'The Reign Of Starscream', in which [[TheStarscream Starscream]] is giving a speech to a bunch of soldiers about how he will spare them if they don't get in his way. Cue one soldier with an itchy trigger finger and a bazooka shooting him in the face. [[BerserkButton BAD]] [[WhatMeasureIsAMook IDEA]].

* The immortals in ''Franchise/{{Highlander}}'' can be perforated by bullets, but this won't kill them. Using guns to take down your opponent long enough to chop his head off is explicitly against the rules, and only truly reprehensible characters attempt it.
** In one case, an immortal who's somewhere between VigilanteMan and WellIntentionedExtremist points out that he could use his high-powered gun to blow [=MacLeod=]'s head off. [=MacLeod=] responds with "but you won't", and the two draw their swords and fight by the "rules".
** Also, whether using guns in their duels is explicitly ''prohibited'' or merely considered dishonorable or unsporting by most immortals in unclear. After all, "The Game" had its rules set up long before guns were invented. And even the most vile immortals follow the prohibition against killing on holy ground (for example, waiting ''centuries'' for an immortal monk to leave his monastery before killing him), but some have no problem "cheating" with guns and other non-melee weapons.
** It may be one of the Rules, but it's not entirely accurate to say that at least some Immortals won't bend or even break the prohibition about killing on Holy Ground; in ''Film/HighlanderIIITheSorcerer'' requisite baddie, the Immortal Kane, attacks Macleod in a former Buddhist shrine - on Holy Ground, in other words. Even assuming that he were unaware of the building's sanctified status to begin with, he shows no hesitation in his attempt to take Connor's head even ''after'' Macleod informs him of as much.
*** If it's a ''former'' shrine then it's ''no longer'' holy ground, just by definition. Nevertheless, there's still Kell (see entry under VoodooShark).
* The Neo-Vipers from ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'' walk through massed assault rifle fire with the rounds bouncing off harmlessly, and the Cobra gunship takes 50-cal triple-A without even a dent.
* The Film/{{Batman}} [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga films]] often play around with the fact he wears a bullet-proof suit. Usually for dramatic effect.
* Film/{{SyFy Channel|OriginalMovie}} crapfests
** ''Film/MegaSharkVsGiantOctopus''. The title monsters shrug off torpedoes, missiles, and shells which, they being kaiju, do precisely jack.
** ''Mongolian Death Worm'', inverts this trope: the titular monsters [[spoiler: except the gigantic queen]] can be killed instantly by single hits from small-arms fire, even though real worms have few non-duplicated vital organs and could easily survive comparable wounds.
** In ''Skeleton Man'', the titular monster doesn't even react to being shot with a ''mini-gun''. In the same fight scene, the hero is able to judo throw the skeleton man.
* In Creator/HowardHawks's ''Film/TheThingFromAnotherWorld'' the titular 'Thing' is of course immune to bullets. "What do you mean guns are no good?!" a character demands.
* Used straight ''and'' averted in ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy''. No mortal weapons can harm Imhotep--although [[ShootingSuperman that doesn't stop people from shooting him]]--but other mummies can be harmed by bullets.
* In ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'', villagers and policemen try to stop the Monster with bullets, to no avail.
* In ''Film/{{Firestarter}}'', Charlie literally burns bullets before they touch her.
* Lampshaded during a gunfight in ''Film/DeadHeat'', a cops vs. zombies comedy:
--> '''Bigelow (cop):''' Hey, Roger! Remember the good old days when bullets ''killed'' people?
--> '''Mortis (cop zombie):''' You're just jealous, that's all!
** This leads to a scene near the end of film that has two zombies firing each other with submachineguns, to no effect.
* Played somewhat straight in ''Film/TheQuickAndTheDead'', in which one of the duelists (called "Speckled Horse") is littered with bullet scars. He gives his opponent a shock when he carries on fighting, instead of [[InstantDeathBullet dying immediately as expected]].
* Michael Myers from the ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}'' series alternates between bullets hurting-but-not-killing him and bullets causing nothing more than a minor nuisance.



* Eric in ''Film/MysteryTeam''.
* In ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'', it seems guns are on the list of devices the Master does not approve of, given that bullets evidently don't harm him.
* 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 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.
* The killer in ''Film/MidnightMovie'' gets shot several times by Detective Barrens. He doesn't even flinch.
* In ''Film/HellraiserIIIHellOnEarth'', Monroe tries to destroy Pinhead by shooting him. Since he's shooting at a solid pillar statue it's virtually useless and Pinhead just spits out the bullets, asking him if they can now talk sensibly.
* Played for laughs in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''. Data, being an android, is immune to bullets. When an Earth woman from the past thinks he's an enemy and riddles him with her machine gun, he shrugs it off and nonchalantly greets her. She faints in response.
* ''Film/ShanghaiNoon'': Roy O'Bannon in the movie's final firefight, walks away with the priest robes he was wearing looking like Swiss cheese, but no a scratch on him, briefly leading him to believe that he was invincible. Course, at the end he reveals his name to really be Wyatt Earp, so he may be onto something there.
* Downplayed in ''Film/EndOfDays''. Handguns only mildly inconvenience the Devil but forces him to repair his host body and machine gun fire does take him down, [[ImplacableMan albeit temporarily]].
* In ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'', the Turtles' shells are bulletproof, which they were quite delighted to learn.
* In ''[[Film/CountYorga The Return of Count Yorga]]'', two policemen are beset by Yorga's vampire brides. Spooked by them appearing out of nowhere, they shoot two of the brides point blank. The brides winch a bit and gain bloodied stomachs but aren't phased and continue coming after the two policemen.
* ''Film/FrightNight''. When Billy (TheRenfield to Jerry Dandridge) is shot six times with bullets, he bleeds from his wounds but keeps on coming. He's only stopped when Charley stabs him with a wooden stake.
* ''Film/{{Constantine}}''. When Angela Dodson is confronted by the Mexican man possessed by the Spear of Destiny, she shoots him repeatedly in the chest. The bullets go right through him but don't affect him at all.

While in there, he was so badly beaten (blowing out most of its torso, despite him having a pistol like the others) and abused by the other inmate, for obvious reasons, eventually gets up and wanders away.

that "Your puny Earth weapons are no match for my great intellect," and is then shot dead. Turns out he lost the nerves in the body was simply mistaken on this point.

** The Scout's Bonk! Atomic Punch causes him to vibrate so quickly that bullets pass right through him for a few seconds. He's not immune to the kinetic force, however, and many an inexperienced scout has found himself pinned to a wall thirty feet in the air by a sentry until his invulnerability wears off.

** To give you an idea of the massive amounts of firepower these [[DeflectorShields AT Fields]] can soak up. During the first episode, the Fourth Angel (First Bad Guy) isn't even affected by shelling from at least a division of tanks, two battalions of VTOL fighter missiles, an uncountable amount of rocket artillery barrage, and even multiple Air-to-Ground [=SRBMs=]. They then NukeEm...which halts it for a bit, but it's no worse for the wear even minutes afterward. Later, the Fifth Angel shrugs off firepower that would put the above paragraph to shame.
