* ''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.

* {{Averted|Trope}} and [[WarIsHell played for utterly tragic effect]] in ''VideoGame/RedOrchestra''. Soldiers will only ever die instantly in case of BoomHeadshot. In other cases, they'll lie on the floor moaning in agony, weakly murmuring that they don't want to die, bitterly cursing their enemies, crying that they just want to go home, thinking about their parents... At some point you will walk past downed enemy players and you ''will'' feel like a monster.
