* PlayedWith in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'': Valentine's mooks empty magazine after magazine at Eggsy, but they don't miss; his suit is bulletproof. A deleted clip shows him shrugging off a ton of flattened bullets. All of them do, however, manage to miss his unprotected head.

** Also, Obi-Wan suggests that the clones inherited a nervous twitch Jango Fett had when firing at living targets, hence why they're more effective against the droid armies than against the rebels.

** Averted with the [[DoomTroops Death Troopers]] in ''Film/RogueOne'', they retained the brutal efficiency of how a Stormtrooper is supposed to be and are known for scoring ''numerous'' kill counts of the rebels as well as [[spoiler:[[HeroKiller two of the main casts]], Baze and Chirrut'.]]

** ''Film/RogueOne'' finally gives us a potential in-universe explanation: Force-sensitives seem to have the latent ability to cause blaster shots to narrowly miss, almost as though the Force willed it. [[spoiler: There are plenty of hints (though no confirmation) that Chirrut is a Force-sensitive that was not selected to be trained as a Jedi, and is able to, through great concentration, walk through a field of [[EliteMook Death Troopers]] unscathed.]] Notably, the Stormtroopers encountered in the original trilogy are much more capable of hitting a RedShirt rebel soldier than any of the plot characters.

* Inner city gangs are notorious for terrible marksmanship, both in fiction and in real life. Many incidents where gang members hit one out of every twenty shots fired are recorded, or incidents where gang members hit no enemy gang members (or police officers) in a firefight but manage to hit innocent bystanders.

* ''Film/OnceUponATimeInMexico'' protagonist El Mariachi has spent the last two movies diving for cover when the shooting starts. In this movie, maybe because he's got a [[DeathSeeker death wish]], maybe he's just spent so much time fighting the last several years he's just that much of a BadAss, he tends to stand in the wide open areas and massacre his opponents.

* Parodied in ''Film/OSS117LostInRio'' (hey, it's a ''Film/JamesBond'' AffectionateParody): the hero is never shot, while he doesn't even bother to go into cover, alone against a handful of bad guys (OK, a lot of unarmed red shirts are killed). In another scene, when he is running away because an autogun is firing at him, he makes a dramatic pause and go back, because he has forgotten something. Twice.

In another heavy gunfire by crouching slightly and holding his arm up above his eyes like he's shielding himself from rain. During one scene, when while fleeing from a barrage of gunfire, he is running away because an autogun is firing at him, he makes a dramatic pause stops and go back, because goes back to retrieve some pocket items he has left behind, twice. He even pauses a third time as if trying to remember whether he's forgotten something. Twice.anything else, while still getting shot at, before finally leaving.

* ''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.
