* ''[[VideoGame/Fallout4 Fallout 4]]'s'' New Survival mode invokes this trope. Since enemies and the player alike have been morphed into massive GlassCannons, the use of melee/unarmed weapons is nigh-impossible in this mode. Taken UpToEleven in that due to how the disease system works, even ''animals'', which are normally limited to melee combat, ''still'' discourage the player from fighting up-close and personal.

* Commonwealth forces in WW2 were trained to use their Lee-Enfield rifles in three ways - Shooting, Bayonet and Buttplate. The first two are obvious but the third involves holding the rifle firmly, pulling the barrel/left hand away from the opponent, pushing the trigger/right hand towards them and then watching what happens when several pounds of brass buttplate meet human flesh and bone. Even if the attacker manages to put up an arm to defend themselves, they're still going to have a bad day. It relies heavily on the rifleman not panicking though. I'm not sure if it works with the modern, lighter rifles though.
