** One last ''Twin Snakes'' example. ([[CutscenePowerToTheMax Noticing a trend yet?]]) After defeating Vulcan Raven's tank, [[spoiler:Snake takes a grenade, regardless of whether or not you still have one, unpins it, waits a few seconds, and throws it into the barrel of the tank's cannon, all the way to the other end, where it waits for the gunner when he opens the hatch to load the next round]]. He has enough time for an "OhCrap" before it blows, explaining the explosion in the original game that launched him out of the tank.

** Also, River killing three of Niska's men with one shot each, while her eyes are closed, and the bad guys are hiding behind cover...Jayne's disbelief is understandable. So is his line, "She killed them with math, what else could it be?", heavy on the sarcasm. Being a subject of a SuperSoldier project, she only took a one-second look, memorized their positions, and shot them by [[LudicrousPrecision ''remembering where they were and working out the math of how to angle the gun'']].

* [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Imperial Assassins]] are all [[TrainingFromHell trained]] to a ridiculous degree, each and every one of them qualifying as a superior shot to the best master-snipers in the galaxy by the time they are ready to be sent on actual missions. And then there's the specialist sniper school of Assassins, the Vindicare Temple, where the end goal is an entire army of guys who shoot like everyone else on this page. They specialise in making headshots ''through'' active forcefields, at ranges of multiple kilometres, just to silence one recidivist governor or heretical demagogue before he can do enough harm to require an intervention in force. In-game, it translates to having the ability, unique among all people in the 40k universe, to specifically single out a specific target in an enemy squad.
** The Eldar Exarch skill Crack Shot eliminates enemies' benefit from cover, to the point that Maugan Ra has close to a 50% chance per shot of killing a Space Marine in a fortified bunker.

** In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' Tzaangor Skyfires are able to use their precognitive abilities to pull off incredible feats of marksmanship. In-game this is represented by a re-roll to hit and their attacks having a 1-in-6 chance of automatically wounding.

** In ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'', Teana pops both rear tires of a speeding car in less than a second... with a gun that is decidedly non-magical... while standing on the back of a speeding motorcycle... which is steered by Erio on SuperSpeed.

** To a lesser extent, the rest of the Golden State Warriors also have their moments, particularly Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, and the newly-acquired Kevin Durant.

** 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.
