* In ''Franchise/StarWars'', the Death Star plays this both ways. One shot from the superlaser at a target ''planet'' creates the planetary equivalent of the ChunkySalsaRule. Whereas a single proton torpedo to the thermal exhaust port, and the Death Star--the size of a moon with a crew numbering in the millions--turns itself into a planet-sized firework.
** This is how the famous who shot first is resolved. Han shoots and kills Greedo with a single shot before Greedo can react.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', it's not that [[BlackKnight Gregor Clegane]] has any magical or secret technique that suddenly turns him deadly. He's just ''that'' [[TheBigGuy big]], [[WorldsStrongestMan strong]] and able to use [[MadeOfIron so much armour]] and a ''cavalry'' weapon that's just ''[[{{BFS}} that big]]'' (while he's on foot; in a single hand, no less) in such a way to lay waste to even the most heavily armoured of knights in one swing thanks to the sheer power he can put behind it. Now, add a horse's mass and velocity to this equation... If he makes contact, you're dead (and, probably even the guy next to you and the one next to him). It's simple physics and [[AxCrazy psychotics]]. The downside is that he isn't the [[MightyGlacier fastest]] (still faster than you'd expect, considering how much he and his poor horse is hauling about) and he suffers chronic physical pain thanks to his gigantism for which he's on constant medication. But, if you think that's a bonus, it just means you need to hurt him more for him to register it.

* Marv from SinCity never seems to have to hit a person a second time (although sometimes he does anyway).

** The poison dart frog poison kills even faster; less than 3 seconds; it has to get in the blood though, so contact itself probably won't kill you. Unless it's the ''Golden'' Poison Dart Frog, which can.
* In both armoured and naval warfare, a well-aimed or lucky hit in the opposing tank/ship's magazine can lead to that unfortunate target being blown up by its own ammunition. This is what happened to three British battlecruisers at the battle of Jutland in 1916 and to the ''HMS Hood'' in 1941. It doesn't even have to be in the main magazines! At least one of the hits at Jutland (on the HMS ''[[{{Irony}} Invincible]]'') penetrated the roof of a main battery turret, which wouldn't have been a problem except that the Royal Navy battlecruisers' gunners were [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique bypassing safety protocols for the sake of rapid fire]] and leaving a nice, flammable chain of cordite leading all the way to the magazines. That, and the fact that the cordite stock hadn't been sufficiently rotated and the stuff was a bit old and chemically twitchy, added up to cause disaster.
** This how the ''Bismarck'' sank the HMS ''Hood'' managing to make a plunging hit into the ''Hood's'' magazine.

* During the Battle Off Samar, the USS ''Johnston'' managed to land a crippling hit onto the Japanese Heavy Cruiser ''Kumano'' completely taking it out of the battle with just one torpedo hit.
