* From the 2000 film ''Film/ThePatriot'', Benjamin Martin deliberately saves a special bullet made from one of his murdered son's lead soldiers especially for the BigBad who killed him, Colonel Tavington. Subverted in that while he does get his final, poetic justice-y shot in on Tavington, a cannonball landing nearby throws off his aim and only ''wounds'' the villain, leading to a rather fierce duel between Benjamin and the now ''very'' pissed-off Tavington in the midst of the battle.

* The [[SpiderTank Tachikoma]] in ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' are among the worlds best killing machines that can deal with anything short of a heavy tank without breaking a sweat. But when most of them are dismantled and the rest of them had been refitted for civilian work, they had to rescue Batou from a special forces hit squad with nothing but a single ancient mortar round a senile old veteran had stashed in a shoe box as their only weapon. When they arrive at the scene, Batou had already killed most of the attackers, except for one last soldier in a huge suit of powered armor who was crushing him under his giant foot. After chasing him into the nearby forest while losing one of their own, the last two try everything they can to make their one single shot count. But as a subversion, with a weak ''"Pfshhh..."'' the propellant fizzles without ejecting the grenade, and the last two Tachikoma get immediately riddled with gaping bullet holes. [[spoiler:But being Tachikoma, they still don't give up after some encouraging words, one of them holds the powered armor guy in place while the other jumps at him, crushing the mortar barrel between their bodies, [[HeroicSacrifice and detonating the grenade.]]]]

The hero has entered the enemy base. He has killed mooks, blown stuff up, and said one liners. This is it. The final showdown. Hero vs. Big Bad. Mr Villain says, "It's too late! The files have already been transferred!" as he holds the heroine close, threatening to kill the damsel in distress. She cries out to her beloved hero. The hero gathers his resolves and checks his pistol's magazine. He only has one bullet left.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/GunxSword'' has an exaggerated example. Wendy's revolver, inherited from her brother, starts out with one bullet... and stays that way for [[UpToEleven the entire series]]. [[spoiler: Fittingly, she uses it on said brother in the finale]].

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/TheCurseOfTheWereRabbit'', where Victor the hunter has to kill the were-rabbit with a bullet made of pure gold ("[[JustForPun Twenty-Four Karat!]]") and only has three. He thinks he kills the were-rabbit with the first one, but it turns out that he shot a disguise instead. Once he realizes this, he tries to calm down the crowd by firing his gun in the air...

* ''{{Rango}}'': A running theme during the movie. When he first arrives in town, Rango lies about killing seven men with one bullet, and then manages to (accidentally) kill the hawk using just one bullet. Then, during the climax of the film, Rango confronts Rattlesnake Jake with only one bullet left in his gun. [[spoiler: After Rattlesnake Jake backs down, the mayor forces Rango to hand over his gun, but Rango stealthily removes the bullet. He ends up using it to free himself and Beans from the bank vault they've been locked in.]]

* ''{{Trigun}}'': Vash has used up five of his six shots to make a giant projectile veer off course from a group of incapacitated civilians. Vash ejects the empty cartidges (even saying "Only one bullet left, doc."), spins the barrel, locks it without looking, and shoots - he picked the right chamber. Somewhat {{justified|Trope}} in that [[spoiler: Vash isn't really human and may or may not have psychic powers]].

* In ''GunBlazeWest'' during a gun duel, Viu ''deliberately'' empties his gun of all but a single bullet in the belief that because he only has one bullet, his focus will improve and make that one shot count more than the others. It does.
