* In the 2010 version of ''TrueGrit'', [=LaBoeuf=] is shot straight through the shoulder but is unhindered by it for the rest of the film. The only reason we even remember him getting shot are the bloodless holes on the front and back of his coat.

* Averted in ''TrueBlood.'' Lafayette is shot in the leg trying to escape from Fangtasia. Later, after Sookie secures his release, he's seen at home, he can barely walk, and he's taking tons of prescription painkillers. Eric makes it explicit that his leg has become infected, and he'll lose it without the Eric's regenerating blood.

** [[AllThereInTheManual It hasn't been explicitly stated in-comic]], but [[spoiler: Klaus was evidently stitched together from the remains of three brothers who were killed in a lab accident. So.. ''he's not lying''.]]

** Semi-averted around the end of the fourth case in the first game, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Manfred Von Karma]] was shot in the shoulder some time ago, and was still able to [[spoiler:shoot Gregory Edgeworth. However, he had to take a few months time of vacation to let the wound heal over the bullet since he didn't undergo surgery in order to not become implicated in the murder.]]
** A more literal example can be seen with Franziska Von Karma in 2-4. During the case she's [[spoiler: shot in the shoulder. After several hours in the hospital she seems completely fine, and is even swinging around her signature whip as if nothing had ever happened.]]

** At the end of the final case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', [[spoiler: after [[TheSpook the Phantom]] is caught, he's shot by a sniper rifle before he can reveal his identity to the court, yet the sniper hit him in a "non-vital area" and the Phantom was rushed to the hospital quick enough to survive.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Postal}}'' 2 zig-zags this trope. For civilians and weaker enemies, being set on fire, having their limbs hacked off, tazed for several seconds, stabbed with a knife, and more will either kill them on the spot or leave them bleeding to death while they run away in terror/crawl on the ground. Stronger enemies, however, can take a fair amount of punishment before these effects kick in, and the player is immune to all of it. Bullet weapons don't have any special effects beyond extra damage from a headshot (and [[YourHeadAsplode destruction of the head]] in the case of a close-enough shotgun blast), and any character will stay in perfect condition no matter where or how much they get shot, until their health reaches zero and they promptly ragdoll to the floor.

* {{Spenser}} averts this left and right when it comes to bullet wounds. Pretty much anyone who is shot is either dead or going to need a hospital immediately, even for wounds that would, by this trope, be thought relatively minor. The only time it's played at all straight is in ''Pastime'', where he takes a bullet to the calf, and walks around on it for almost a day, but it's a small caliber that was fired from a long distance away, and may have passed through something that slowed it down, not to mention he is on the run in a heavily wooded area during this time. As it is, the wound becomes infected and he passes out from the fever just after he reaches a highway, where he is taken to a hospital that he needs to stay in for several days for both the wound ''and'' the infection.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Arya gets shanked several times in the abdomen, yet only needs some bandaging by an amateur healer and apparently a few days of bed rest to be fit enough to perform feats of acrobatics, though her wounds reopen in the process.

Arya gets shanked several times in the abdomen, yet only needs some bandaging by an amateur healer and apparently a few days of bed rest to be fit enough to perform feats of acrobatics, though her wounds reopen in the process.process.
** The series generally averts the trope:
*** When Ned gets speared in the leg in "The Wolf and the Lion," he's unconcious for a long period between episodes and weak for several episodes after, requiring a cane to get around.
*** When Khal Drogo allows himself to be cut by an uppity tribesman, Daenerys and Mirri Maz Duur agree the wound must be washed and sewn. Unfortunately, it festers anyway—possibly due to Mirri's sabotage—and by the next episode he's dying of blood poisoning.
*** Tyrion loses consciousness after being wounded in the face during "Blackwater."
** PlayedStraight when Jon Snow recovers from ''three'' serious arrow wounds between "Mhysa" and "Two Swords" before wildlings who shot him can even make their next move. In "Watchers on the Wall," Jon also survives having his head smashed on an anvil hard enough to kill anyone not MadeOfIron.

* Played with in ''VideoGames/ResidentEvil7Biohazard'': Mooks survive almost every wound unless their head explodes (or they got a massive amount of damage otherwise) to the point of some of them crawling to the player without arms and legs, attacking with just their teeth.
** The bosses play this entirely straight and unless hit repeatedly in their weakpoints, they won't even really react to the damage they receive. Jack getting a chainsaw into his face or [[spoiler: Mia]] an axe into the neck are prime examples here. [[spoiler: Justified, they are infected with a fungus that restores any physical harm in incredible speed to the point where Jack can restore losing his head and Lucas regrow a cut-off arm.]]
** Ethan himself at one point during the beginning [[spoiler: loses his arm thanks to a chainsaw]]. Not only does he manage to continue fighting and ''reloading his gun'' despite that, but he later [[spoiler: gets his arm simply stapled back on]]. This is supposed to show early that [[spoiler: Ethan is infected with the mold as well and thus got healing powers]]. His general health also regenerates slowly over time.
