** Inverted with Gaige the Mechromancer's Anarchy build in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}''. By killing enemies and emptying magazines, Gaige can build stacks of Anarchy to increase her raw damage at the expense of accuracy (in both cases, the modifier is 1.75% per stack). If she has the Slayer of Terramorphous class mod, letting her rack up 600 anarchy stacks, and a gun with a low base accuracy, her aim becomes ''impossibly bad'' - bullets will go sideways or land behind you, zigzag in midair, and otherwise strive to avoid actually hitting anything, even at point-blank range...and then Close Enough 5 gives you a 50/50 chance of them rebounding into the soft squishy bits of something with half damage, not that you'll care at 600 stacks (that's more than a thousand percent damage bonus, meaning that half of your misses will still be hitting with ridiculous amounts of power).

* HumphreyBogart reminds how ''flippin' awesome'' it is to be an American in the WWII film ''Film/Sahara1943'', 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.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', being based on ComicBook/GreenArrow, naturally has this. At one point he faces off against Deadshot, who actually averts this trope as his bullets are laced with a poison so deadly it doesn't matter where on someone's body he hits for him to kill them. Ollie takes cover behind a wall in the final confrontation. Deadshot starts shooting the cover (possibly averting ConcealmentEqualsCover), so Oliver draws in arrow, pops out of cover, lets the shot fly and quickly ducks back in. After not hearing anything, he glances out and sees Deadshot on the floor, "[[NotQuiteDead dead"]] with the arrow clean in his [[EyeScream aiming lens]].

* Given ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}''[='=]s similarity to the aforementioned Dante, she has her moments. Among her more mundane examples is shooting an angel's crotch (ItMakesSenseInContext) while facing the other way, resting her gun over her shoulder.

* One of the main features of [[VideoGame/SuperHot SUPERHOT]]. As time moves only when you do (or at least, moves [[BulletTime reeeeeaally sloooowly]] when you don't) you are able to see the [[EveryBulletIsATracer location and trajectory]] of any bullets fired at you. This, combined with ImplausibleFencingPowers, results in being able to stop projectiles by shooting the bullet, slicing the bullet, or throwing a teacup at the bullet.
