* In ''TabletopGame/TaleFromTheFloatingVagabond'', characters with the Rambo effect can't be hit with guns at all from Point Blank or Close range (which means there's always a penalty to attack them with ranged weapons), and gives an 80% chance that enemies will try to shoot the character anyway.

* Rosie Big Daddies in the ''VideoGame/BioShock'' series, while lethal within a few meters, are horrible shots at longer distance. Justified in the fact that they're using modified rivet guns.

** The series also uses this as a game mechanic: an enemy's first shot will ''always'' miss you. It's meant to be an AntiFrustrationFeature so enemies can't hit you with cheap potshots.

* The live action TeddyRuxpin special lampshades and invokes this. One character states, when the cannon fire begins, that the bad guy is the worst shot in the world, and that as long as he's trying to blow up the cabin, the cabin is the safest place they could be.

Added DiffLines:

* In '' WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Firebending {{Mooks}} are terrible shots when trying to hit the heroes.
** However, this averted with Firebending soldiers under Ozai's or Azula's command, in which the heroes usually have to protect themselves or dodge them.
** Also averted with the Yuyan archers, because they are well known for their '' deadly'' accuracy.

* Justified in the Literature/Biggles stories ''The Professor'' and ''Biggles Finds His Feet''. Biggles explains that most anti-aircraft gunners never hit anything as they aim directly at where they see the plane, and by the time the shell reaches the target, it has moved on. To successfully hit an aircraft it's necessary to aim at the point ahead of it where it will be when the shell arrives.
