* {{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.

* ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'': Usually uses this straight, especially with the Saint of Killers, whose guns are forged from the sword of the former Angel of Death and can kill the Devil and ''God himself'', there are at least two subversions. In the first, a hulking cannibal takes a head shot, continues advancing and takes a second before dying. In the second, Herr Starr gets his head blown open. He has time to glance up and utter a final "shit" before expiring.

* ''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.
