* The entire point of behind an aim-bot is to replicate this. An aim-bot is a program that lets an AI with lighting-fast perfect marksmanship take control of your aiming duties in a first-person shooter, and [[DoWellButNotPerfect an extremely obvious telltale sign that someone is using one is when he pulls off absolutely mind-blowing feats of speed and accuracy.]] Players using one will constantly pull off impossible feats like a complete 180 turn to instantly headshot a target behind him with speeds far beyond human reflexes, then turning back around to headshot another two other guys in the blink of an eye, and capping that off with shooting someone within the absolute very first frame that he becomes visible after disabling his cloaking device. The only limitations to how fast this can be done is how fast the weapon can fire. It should go without saying that using an aim-bot is universally considered cheating.

**Sam and Jesse think the former has this in "Forget Me Not" when he manages to hit a bad guy in a window with covering fire while shooting blind. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], in that Michael made the shot with a sniper rifle from inside a car behind them. [[GenreSavvy Fi picks up on this right away]], though she doesn't see Michael for herself.

* HumphreyBogart reminds how ''flippin' awesome'' it is to be an American in the wartime propaganda film ''Sahara'', where a German aircraft does two flybys of our heroes, and [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy is unable to hit the broad side of a tank in the middle of the desert]], while Bogie, on the other hand, can shoot a single plane down, despite it flying at high speeds at a great distance, with just one shot of his sidearm. Wow.

* In ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'', Talion can go into [[BulletTime "Focus" mode]] with his bow, where the enemies' movement slows almost to a halt (although arrows still fly at normal speed). This makes it ridiculously easy to headshot half a dozen Uruks while they barely have time to react, even in the middle of a melee.

* ''TheExecutioner''. ColdSniper and VigilanteMan Mack Bolan uses his marksman skills to psych out his Mafia enemies, on one occasion shooting [[CallingCard a perfect cross]] through drawn drapes while talking to a man inside the targeted room on the telephone. Another trick when sniping at long-range is to predict where the target is going to run to once his comrades start dying and fire a bullet into that space. Subverted on one occasion when Bolan realises he's missed because the man is actually ''crawling'' away, using a [[IdiotBall flimsy plastic sunning board for cover]]. As Bolan is firing a [[{{BFG}} .460 Magnum rifle]] this does him no good at all.

* Ayla from the ''EarthsChildren'' series once hit four clods of dirt thrown in the air with her sling before any touched the ground, and in general has better aim than anyone else in the series.

* Peggy Carter in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' makes some amazing shots. One of them is putting a bullet through the head of a Nazi driving in a car ''at least a block away''. Also Cap himself and his ludicrous ricochet shots with the shield. [[SequelEscalation Done even better]] in [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier the sequel]].

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': While Emiya Shirou is usually more associated with swords, his skill with a bow is downright inhuman. Before he quit the archery club, he was known for getting perfect bullseyes with every shot. The one and only time he missed his target, he'd done so on purpose, just to see what missing the target felt like. [[spoiler:There's a reason his future self was summoned as an Archer class Servant rather than a Saber.]]
