* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': When Asuka fought [[EldritchAbomination Zeruel]], shooting at the Angel from a distance was doing nothing due to his force-field, so that she rushed at him, shoved a [[{{BFG}} melta]] up against its core and fired at point blank range.

[[UsefulNotes/GunSafety Also take note]] that firing blank rounds can still be harmful or even lethal at close ranges - they may not have proper projectiles but the pressure from the gunpowder detonation is sufficient to harm at very short ranges.

* ''Literature/TheZombieSurvivalGuide'' advises keeping a pistol as a back-up weapon, to be used only in short-range encounters; it takes a professional pistol marksman to headshot a zombie at most ranges, but even a novice can put a pistol to a zombie's head at point-blank and pull the trigger.
** Also {{subverted|Trope}}, as it mentions getting closer to them can break the nerve of ''anyone'', causing you to miss the critical headshot, get bitten, and be doomed to undeath. Of course, then [[MercyKill you still have another option with them.]]

* ''Series/BurnNotice'' advises against this, noting that pressing a gun against your target's head negates the single greatest advantage that a gun gives you. Michael demonstrates by slapping his enemy's gun off target and then disarming him.

* In 'Videogame/DarkestDungeon'' the Highwayman class and the Brigand Chieftain monster both have the Point Blank Shot skill, which can only be used when in the first rank on the enemy in their first rank. It deals extremely high damage and can knock the target back a rank, but when used by the Highwayman knocks him back too (which prevents you from spamming the ability, though it also puts him in a position to use skills with more flexible targeting). Many other people who focus on ranged attacks are severely disadvantaged by being brought to the front rank though.
