** The fluff for a Tau railgun describes a Leman Russ tank with two matching, perfectly circular holes on either side... and the red spray on the exit hole, the remains of the crew that were instantly misted and sucked out by the hypervelocity round.

* Oh so very used in military fiction. Case in point: Creator/TomClancy. The shootout sequence that opens ''Literature/PatriotGames'' actually describes "a wet, pink cloud" as Jack Ryan shoots one of the bad guys.

The most easily accessible real-world evidence for Pink Mist is surely the GrossUpCloseUp provided by the Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination: a 10.5 gram rifle bullet traveling at 2,300 feet per second into a [[NauseaFuel large, homogenous mass with the consistency of a custard pie]] can be clearly seen to support the trope, although not quite as strikingly as [[YourHeadASplode one might expect]].

** The [[VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic Classic]] rifle takes this to an [[UpToEleven even further extreme]] by making the [[LudicrousGibs entire victim explode]], not just their head.

* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' during Robert's Blood Trail, several FARC troops get shot by Roberta while she's wielding an anti-material rifle that was previously shown blowing large holes into a stone building. Against the FARC troops, it more or less vaporized everything above the navel.
