* There's an interesting take on this in the maligned ''Team Achilles'' volume of ''Stormwatch'': the team is up against a mad reality warper, and they don't shoot him dead on the spot specifically ''because'' there's no such thing as an instant death bullet. They're worried what will happen to the town the warper's manipulating if he drops dead, and what he might do in the seconds or minutes he has to live.

** In the episode "War", Aeon is trying to distract what looks like a FacelessGoon so an ally can sneak up on him and prevent her battlefield execution. Before she can be rescued she and her ally are both quickly killed by a shingle shot [[spoiler: with the FacelessGoon turning out to be Trevor.]]

* Averted in ''Film/TheEvilThatMenDo'' where someone cops a knife in the throat, draws it out and staggers after the man who threw it, backing him into the shower before finally collapsing due to blood loss.

* There's an interesting take on this in the maligned ''Team Achilles'' volume of ''Stormwatch'': the team is up against a mad reality warper, and they don't shoot him dead on the spot specifically ''because'' there's no such thing as an instant death bullet. In the best-case scenario, as their tech expert explains, the warper would have as much as 20 seconds before brain death sets in, and they're terrified of what he could do in that period.

* ''VideoGame/CompanyOfHeroes'': while dead infantrymen can definitely drop to the ground motionless, they will instead often lay or kneel on the ground for a while, writhing in pain, before eventually expiring. These incapacitated men could automatically be brought to a medical station by its medics if the station was close enough to them in the first game (which would grant a free unit when enough casualties were brought to the station).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}}'': Played straight in ''Cyberpunk 2020'', where a bullet to the head is very likely to be an insta-kill for your character. Even if you're hit in another location you can be killed at the moment too if it causes enough damage, because of the shock.



* According to the Regimental Standard community website for ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', [[https://regimental-standard.com/2017/09/20/so-youve-been-shot-a-flowchart/ 99% of battlefield injuries will not require medical treatment due to 98% of those injuries]] being instant-death-inducing ones. Poor [[RedshirtArmy Imperial Guardsmen]].
