* In ''Film/TheDeadPool'', ClintEastwood takes a harpoon gun off its deck stanchion and uses it to shoot a villain from the hip. The force launches the villain into the air. Naturally, Eastwood suffers no recoil.

* The [[HumongousMecha Jagd Mirage's]] main caliber, ''Twin Towers'' [[WaveMotionGun buster launchers]] in TheFiveStarStories neatly avert the trope. ''Jagd'', a heavy artillery support MH, generally needed to properly deploy before firing, [[MultiArmedAndDangerous releasing numerous additional arms and legs]] to anchor itself in the ground, brace its own structure and deploy special shields to protect itself from the enormous recoil and backblast of its own guns. It was also mentioned that [[AwesomeButImpractical it was almost completely defenseless in the deployed mode]], and thus was always accompanied by a squad of other mechas for protection. Due to its impractical nature, [[SuperPrototype only two]] were ever built.

* 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.)

Added DiffLines:

* 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 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.

* The realities behind this trope put the lie to that old UrbanLegend of [[ShotAtDawn firing squads]] loading blanks into all but a single rifle, rifle. 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.
