* Averted in the case of most handguns, as some 85% of people survive, though this is present with more powerful rounds like the .40 S&W and the .357 Magnum, both of which rate a ''96%'' lethality.

* Justified in ''Literature/JohannesCabalTheNecromancer'' and other stories with Cabal-he carries an enormous handgun and doesn't shoot to wound. He also isn't the type to fire a single bullet if he has more than one to spare, killing Maleficarus with three shots to center mass and often combines this with BoomHeadshot.
* ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen'': This is an important point in the finale, when Curley in revenge for Lenny's accidental killing of his wife, plans to shoot him in the stomach, so that he would die slowly and painfully. To prevent this, George shoots him in the back of the head, which was instantly fatal.
* Creator/GeorgeOrwell's short story ''Shooting an Elephant'': A horrible aversion, where he finds to his horror that he cannot get the elephant to drop dead, but only cause it more pain.

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