* In an episode of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' the League of Assassins sends a group to attack the Arrow, Canary, and Quentin Lance. One of the assassins mocks Quentin for using a gun, calling them a coward's weapon, since the League uses more traditional weaponry like bladed weapons and bows. Little does he know that Quentin was packing a spare gun and shoots the EliteMook point blank just as he was about to get killed.

** First, the [[NoNameGiven Belladonna Lily Woman]] is performing a MissionImpossibleCableDrop to take Mireille by surprise armed with a knife. She actually gets close enough to be almost within striking distance, but then a stray bit of light from a nearby gunfight reflects off the blade and alerts Mireille to her presence, alerting her and allowing her to shoot the woman dead first.

* Happens several times in ''{{Anime/Noir}}'': ** First, the [[NoNameGiven Belladonna Lily Woman]] is performing a MissionImpossibleCableDrop to take Mireille by surprise. She actually gets close enough to get almost within striking distance, but then a stray bit of light from a nearby gunfight reflects off the blade and alerts Mireille to her presence, alerting her and allowing her to shoot the woman dead first. ** During the final episode the showdown between [[spoiler:Chloe and Mireille]], with the former having the latter dead to rights, ends when Kirika [[ImprobableAimingSkills shoots the knife away]] before it can make lethal contact. Bonus points for it being a much smaller knife than the first time she pulled this stunt in a previous episode.

* Discussed by Movie Bob with regards to the OldBoy remake. A criminal gang in South Korea should carry assorted improvised hand weapons. Guns are hard to get for street criminals there. Anyone trying to take on an American gang with a hammer should have run into this trope headlong, especially in the Southern USA, where guns are plentiful, legal, and cheap. The fact that Spike Jonze decided to just recreate the hammer scene and thus ruin suspension of disbelief showed Jonze was failing to make the material his own rather and was instead just making a beat-for-beat dull remake. Averting this trope meant the movie was being lazy.

* Near the end of WWI the American army entered the western European combat theatre, and with them they brought the Winchester M1897 shotgun. Featuring no trigger disconnect and a 6 round magazine, two shotgunners working in tandem could clear an entire trench in minutes what would take hours for rifleman. The shotgun, now nicknamed the "Trench Sweeper", was so effective that on September 19th 1918 the German government protested its use and called for its outlawing with those in possession of the shotgun (or even its ammunition) executed.
