* ''WebVideo/ResidentEvilAbridged'' presents an egregious example by having Wesker fire a shot at Rebecca and miss, even though she was standing perfectly still - only 5ft. in front of him!

*** He still never hit the dump. Instead, Trapper and Hawkeye's interference leads to Frank ordering a 40mm anti-aircraft gun to fire without knowing where the shell is aimed. Between the Korean operators' confusion and Frank's impatience, the 4077th blows up the ammo dump itself.
*** In a later episode, Charlie redeems himself by at least being competent enough to drop propaganda fliers on the camp.

* Both sides in ''Film/DeltaFarce'' also had horrible shots. Bill is the only one to get hit, and he gets ShotInTheAss of all places.

** Inverted in the new series with the Daleks, who land almost every shot they make with pin-point precision, and miss very rarely in highly chaotic situations. This fits their characterization as omnicidal EX-TER-MIN-ATORS, and guarantees that anyone, even heroic characters, foolish enough to fight them openly is going to be dead in short order. Even ''the Doctor himself'' has been tagged by their shots when any other villain would have played the trope straight.

* ''ComicBook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool'' is revealed to have this as one of her new powers: because she's the star of her book, her assailants' shots all miss her. Her powers are granting her PlotArmor and allowing her to escape them.

** Averted by Sabine. Despite being trained in an Imperial academy, she's an excellent shot.

** In "Cool Hand Peter", Peter, Quagmire, Joe, and Cleveland are escaping from a Southern prison, whose warden has arbitrarily extended their sentence (apparently, not one ever leaves the prison). As they're running for the train, they're chased by the guards, who are shooting at them. When the others express concern over this, Peter calms them down by saying that the bad guys ''never'' hit the good guys. Cue the guards firing every which way (including pointing the rifle backwards) but at the escapees.

* 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]].
