* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' featured an example in the episode "Peak Performance". Commander Riker must take a hand-picked skeleton crew to hastily refit and man an obsolete starship to take part in a wargame against Captain Picard and the ''Enterprise''. This battle, naturally, features weapons running at low power to simulate live-fire. Also naturally, a third party arrives to cause trouble in the midst of the mock-fight while everyone's weapons systems are locked out. Riker, being outclassed in every practical way, resorts to a remarkable number of [[GuileHero unconventional tactics and outright cheating]] both in the wargame and the ensuing actual confrontation.

* Characters taking their masks or goggles off, which is highly illegal and official ranges ''will'' throw you out. As well, most often the full face-covering masks are mandatory while goggles are all the characters wear. For the reasons why, compare InSpaceEveryoneCanSeeYourFace and HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic.

There are reports of concussions even with a helmet, and a direct hit on your eye would blind you in that eye, and possibly even ''kill'', if it went straight through the eye into the brain[[/note]].

* ''Series/ICarly'': In ''iSaved Your Life'', the trio and Spencer play a game called ''Assassin'' using only blow tube guns. Carly and Freddie were "eliminated" early on, leaving behind extreme mind games between Sam and Spencer. No safety equipment is used at all, although the relatively low speed nature of blow-guns reduces the risk of injury and it was meant to be played in a home.

* ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'' gets one with the episode "Tactical Village". Fairly realistic in that it's a training scenario for a group of cops (they're using training rounds in what looks like real guns) but nobody seems to be wearing more protection than goggles. And they get shot in the chest at a couple of feet!
