* Averted in ''{{Kinnikuman}}''; Terryman takes a bullet to the leg, and it ''costs him the leg''.
* In ''KodomoNoOmocha'', Hayama doesn't try to resist Komori's attempt to kill him by stabbing Hayama with a knife. Komori only stabs Hayama in the arm, prompting Hayama to remove the knife and give it back to him, telling him to do it properly. He then walks around for over two hours with a severed artery before passing out from blood loss. He still almost dies on the operating table and loses a good deal of mobility in said arm until the DistantFinale.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/VoidDomain'', many injuries that would be serious for humans in RealLife are rendered far more harmless thanks to the existence of potions. Demons don't need to bother with potions, their enhanced regeneration abilities render the loss of limbs as literal flesh wounds.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' episode "[[Recap/SherlockS03E03HisLastVow His Last Vow]]", Sherlock takes a gunshot wound to the sternum as opposed to the head due to the shooter wishing to invoke this, not wanting to get [[spoiler:her newlywed husband accused of murdering his friend and a powerful news magnate (as well as the fact she was fond of Sherlock herself)]]. Of course getting shot in the chest is a terrible place to be shot even with the trope in effect (since, you know, your body keeps its lungs and heart there), Sherlock apparently writing it off as the shooter's exceptional marksmanship being "surgery", but he lives in spite of it (albeit not in the best of condition).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/Girl Genius'' has a rather... ''extreme'' example.
--> '''Gil:''' Seven broken ribs. Severe fracture, right leg. Fractured clavicle. Some crush injuries, but the kidneys appear unharmed. First and second degree burns on upper back and lower legs, third degree on the lower back. Four broken fingers, three broken toes, sprained and bruised muscles throughout major and minor lacerations, and a concussion.\\
'''Klaus:''' I've had worse.

* X-Ray attacks in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' and ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' can involve cracking skulls, shattering spines, impaling their guts and stabbing their eyes, but once it's over your opponent is still ''perfectly'' able to fight.

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'''s X-Ray attacks, which let you watch as your blows shatter opponents bones and/or rupture their internal organs, but don't impede their ability to fight once the attack has ended.

* Lampshaded in ''TillWeHaveFaces'' by C.S. Lewis: Orual sticks a dagger clean through her own arm to {{blackmail}} her sister and does not suffer permanent harm--but gives us an aside in her narration saying that if she had known then what she knows now about the inside of an arm, she might not have dared to do it, implying that she was extremely lucky.

* Tying in with MadeOfIron, ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' often has characters shrug off wounds which, in real life, would be either severely debilitating or outright fatal. Jacob Starr is a good example of this, as he was able to take injury after injury yet just [[ImplacableMan keep on coming.]]

* Halfway through the ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory" between Romeo & Juliet vs. Bonnie & Clyde, Bonnie shoots Juliet in the stomach. She got up a few seconds later, happily singing that "[her] flesh was merely grazed".

* In an issue of ''CaptainAmerica'', Crossbones takes three bullets to the chest and the Comicbook/BlackWidow diagnoses the wounds as nonfatal less than ''two minutes'' later. Crossbones is merely BadassNormal, so three gunshot wounds to the center body mass is a cointoss on whether he'll live long enough to get medical treatment, but for some reason everyone is confident that he'll be fine. Particularly egregious in that three bullets to the chest is what killed the original Cap just a few issues prior.
