* 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.

* An episode of ''{{Psych}}'' has Det. Lassiter training a rookie detective who happens to be completely insane. When he takes her to the firing range, he comments that she isn't bracing herself properly to fire his gun, but she shrugs him off. The recoil from the gun blows it out of her hands.

Crosswicking Heroes Of The Desk
Added DiffLines:
* Averted ([[PlayedForLaughs in somewhat amusing fashion]]) in the ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' fanfic ''FanFic/HeroesOfTheDesk''. Valla fires a very large [[MagneticWeapons sniper rifle]] while standing ([[WhatAnIdiot much to the chagrin of her minder]] who goes so far as to ''call in a medical team''). She gets blown across the room and lands painfully on her rear, resulting in a big bruise for her trouble.

* Whenever WesternAnimation/{{Wile E Coyote|And The Roadrunner}} tries to fire a cannon, it's more than likely that the cannon will take off in reverse (with poor Wile E. in tow) while the cannonball remains in place.

** This is known as a "muzzle brake", and is in fact used in real life to reduce recoil. ** True, but they're typically only used on very long-barreled rifles, not on handguns, because the vented gases can be dangerous.

* Also averted in ''WebVideo/CriticalRole''. Percy's {{BFG}}, Bad News, has extremely powerful recoil. He tries to fire it from a narrow platform in Episode 11, and Matt makes him roll a save to see whether or not he's knocked off. Perhaps less realistically, he uses the kickback to launch himself off the ground and into a dead sprint in Episode 22 - but hey, it's D&D, RuleOfCool.

* ''Film/HalfPast Dead''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.

* While all of the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' titles have featured appropriate recoil for small arms and especially shotguns (but pointedly ''not'' for rocket and grenade launchers, which kick hardest of all), ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' was the first to introduce muzzle climb on fully automatic weapons. Realistic, but a good example of why its absence is usually considered an AcceptableBreakFromReality.

Rocket Launchers still have a little more kick than they should from part 4 onward, but it's been toned down considerably.
