* Speaking of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', {{Mooks}} can be all over the map in terms of aim (though it's safe to assume they never actually kill an enemy, considering the show's intended age group), but one henchman in the episode ''POV'' makes Darth Vader himself proud. He catches Batman and Montoya off-guard and proceeds to shoot around them in a near-perfect outline. He then continues to fire above them for about three straight seconds while Batman pulls out his grapple gun and repels away ''still without getting hit''. [[http://i.imgur.com/W27iiPg.png It has to be seen to be believed]]. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Guys like this make you wonder if Bruce Wayne pays off some of these henchmen to intentionally miss]].

** This is more an inversion of ArmorIsUseless, as the ImprovisedArmor compartment Eastwood's character builds around the driver's seat does take its share of hits. On the other hand, it does raise the question of why none of Phoenix's finest, virtually all 2900 of whom are lining the bus route, think to ''[[WhatAnIdiot shoot out the tires.]]''



* Everyone who tries to shoot at Film/TheBluesBrothers. Especially Creator/CarrieFisher's Mystery Woman. In fact, the character with the best aim (although an example of ATeamFiring) was Ray Charles...

** Justified:
--> Jake: Ma'am, would it make you feel any better if you knew that what we're asking Matt here to do is [[MissionFromGod a holy thing?]]
--> Elwood: You see, we're on a [[DivineIntervention mission from God.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': Lord Hater's Watchdogs have trouble even hitting a ''stationary'' target! Although it could be Hand-Waved by their lack of depth perception since they just have an eyeball for a head. Lord Dominator's MechaMooks have much better aim by the sheer virtue of just shooting at everything in sight, reflecting their creator's love of destruction and chaos.

* ''Film/{{Tombstone}}'', where during the Iron Springs shootout, the bad guys could not hit Wyatt Earp despite him just slowly walking towards them. He winds up killing several of them, driving them off. This was what happened in real life too.

* [[https://charges.uol.com.br/2017/06/30/cotidiano-da-pra-entender/?tipo=flash This animation]] from Brazilian website ''wwwdotchargesdotcomdotbr'' features theories on why the intruder who broke into the President of Brazil's Palace wasn't killed. One of the theories is that the guards are Stormtroopers. [[InvokedTrope One of them even says Stormtroopers never hit their targets]].

* Played ridiculously straight in ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith'' with a squadron of expert mercenary snipers. Who have ''circled'' said eponymous characters. Who, while completely missing John and Jane (STILL FIRING AT THEM IN A CIRCLE!), proceed to then get completely gunned down by two people hiding behind nothing more than each other.

* In one of the trailers for VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3, [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]] and {{Comicbook/Deadpool}} shoot at each other at point blank range yet none of their bullets seem to hit their mark.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheWire'': While the gangbangers may have access to firearms and not be shy about using them, they don't really know much about ''shooting accurately''. A prime and tragic example is in Season 2, where Bodie's crew and another gang unload dozens of rounds at each other in a running shootout. The only resulting damage is a bunch of shattered car windows... and a little boy in an upstairs bedroom who gets a stray bullet through the head. Most of the bangers don't even aim properly when they shoot, and have their eyes closed when they pull the trigger. The only real exception is Marlo Stanfield's crew, as Marlo often takes his men out into the woods for target practice.

** The only real time this was truly subverted is when Guts was protecting [[ActionGirl Casca]] and got hit three times, the third even going straight his hand and sticking there, forcing Guts to swing one handed. Casca showed much shock and gratitude at his [[TakingTheBullet human shielding]]/

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Even though it's arrows instead of bullets, non of the marauding bandits, mouthy soldiers or terrifying hellspawn can ever seem to hit [[MasterSwordsmen Guts]] even when there's a hundreds of them and Guts is just causally strolling though the battlefield. In fact most shots Guts just [[http://img.bato.to/comics/2013/09/03/b/read52262522ac3de/img000054.png deflects]] off the flat of his blade which is seems pretty reasonable as Guts's sword is huge and could provide cover but then as series goes on and the villains get more skilled, some being super Arabian ninjas and others demon marksmen the excuse boils down to Guts's reflexes being that good.

** The Villains aren't left out of the loop either as none of the human armies (except for the really skilled ones) can ever hit the demon-like Apostles and when they do find their mark it normally [[ImmuneToBullets doesn't do anything]] or just makes them angry. One truly galling example is Griffith after his evil resurrection is shot at with a hail of arrows... And they all miss their mark by yard. Though this likely due to Griffith's demonic aura.
