* One Commander [=McBragg=] story from ''WesternAnimation/TennesseeTuxedoAndHisTails'' ''defies'' this Trope. The Commander's story involves him testing a new rifle with an ''incredibly'' powerful recoil, one which knocks him dozens of feet backwards no matter how he tires to brace himself, and even sends him crashing through a ''natural'' cave wall when he tries to brace himself that way. (Ironically, when he falls into a deep pit with walls too smooth to climb, he uses the gun's recoil to escape, shooting downward and propelling him up and out.)

* The blunderbuss in ''VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice'' has a powerful recoil that knocks Alice backwards on her rump whenever she uses it, making it dangerous to use near ledges and cliffs.

* In the Japanese film version of ''Hakaider'' (a DarkerAndEdgier story starring a villain from tokusatsu series ''Series/{{Kikaider}}''), the titular Android uses a custom shotgun that acts more like a handheld cannon. When a {{mook|s}} gets his hands on it and attempts to fire, the recoil literally (and gorily) tears his arm out of its' socket.

** While Teal'c does do GunsAkimbo, he is a [[BadAss truly exceptional individual]] from a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy race]] of [[SuperSoldier bred warriors]]. The rest of the cast hold their guns with both hands, even when firing pistols.

* In the ''{{Rifts}}'' RPG, the [[PoweredArmor Glitter Boy]] boom gun (the {{BFG}} of all {{BFG}}s) requires the wearer of the armour to engage foot anchors and backpack thrusters to absorb the massive recoil.
* ''{{GURPS}}'', in its relentless pursuit of accuracy, avoids this at every turn and even tries to establish realistic recoil of weapons that don't exist.

* The ''{{Traveller}}'' science-fiction RPG has man-portable energy weapons (the game's {{BFG}}) that can only be fired while wearing a suit of ''PoweredArmor'' that automatically locks your body into one of several safe firing positions.

* The realities behind this trope put the lie to that old UrbanLegend of [[ShotAtDawn firing squads]] loading blanks into all but a single rifle, so no man would know who fired the fatal shot. The felt recoil from the live round would be a dead giveaway to whoever fired it.

According to the legend, this is so that no man would know who fired the fatal shot. The felt recoil shot, but fact is the telltale thump from the live round would be a dead giveaway to whoever ended up shooting it, while the men who fired it.blanks would know from the lack of felt recoil.

* There are many many videos on youtube in which 'responsible' gun owners give either children or young women powerful guns to fire without preparing them for the recoil. In most cases they are lucky to get off with bruises and sprains, though as the examples above show, the results can be lethal.

* ''Film/HalfPastDead''has a shoulder-fired rocket launcher that packs enough recoil to launch a person back by a considerable distance. The immediate shot after then shows no recoil whatsoever.
