* TruthInTelevision with the notorious man-eating crocodile Gustave, which is recognizable because of its huge size and the bullet scars covering it. Okay, so you could probably kill it if you had a higher caliber gun, but the thing has been shot, a lot, and is still going.

*** The scars aren't '''that''' numerous one on his head and three on his flank. The problem probably is that he's so low-to-the-ground (as crocodiles tend to be) that the shots have been glancing. A standard automatic rifle would probably be enough to kill him if you could only hit him properly in the flank.

** GURPS Magic has the Missile Shield spell. This spell causes ANY projectile (including bullets and [[PieInTheFace cream pies]]) to flat out miss...no matter the shooter's skill. There is also the deadlier Reverse Missiles spell which, as the name implies, reflects all projectiles back to the attacker that launched them.

* The Bug Demons from Spike's crew in ''Comic/{{Buffy The Vampire Slayer}}'' have bullet proof armor. However, their heads are still vulnerable, thus [[BigBad Simone Doffler]] had no problem ploughing through them. Additionally, in the ''Comic/{{Angel}}'' comics Illyria was unaffected by army gunfire before chucking a car at them.



*** Not quite true. A shotgun blast to the neck can decapitate a vampire, thus killing it.

** A demon mob boss from ''The Prodigal'' was unharmed by gunfire, but not to the swing of an axe.

* Deconstructed on ''Series/JessicaJones''. Luke 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.

* The Lobstermen in ''VideoGame/XCom: Terror From the Deep'' are virtually immune to most projectile weapons, taking only 50% damage from sonic weapons and less from all others (basic guns do 20% of their normal damage, and Gauss guns do 30%). The only thing the Lobstermen are fully vulnerable to is stun weapons (100% damage) and bladed melee weapons (200% damage). They also functionally ignore explosions (40% normal damage), and are immune to natural alien weaponry, like the Deep One's acid spit.

* [[Literature/{{Prolecto}}]] has Succubi who can heal so quickly, that bullets become meaningless. In a subversion, this DOES mean that a sufficient quantity of bullets can be used to STUN them.

* 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'']].
