* 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.

* Dialled up to 11 in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', in which the main weapon of the Space Marines is a machine gun loaded with exploding bullets. [[strike: A few]] ONE good hit can turn ''your entire body'' into PinkMist[=/=]Pink Salsa.

[[strike: A few]] ONE good hit can turn ''your entire body'' into PinkMist[=/=]Pink Salsa. Even the humble lasgun, much-derided in the fandom with the nickname "flashlight", is described in-universe to be roughly equal in power to such classic full-power rifles as the M1 Garand, and entirely capable of taking a limb or head off a target.

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]].

* In ''Discworld/RaisingSteam'', ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' engineers learn superheated steam is not good if the boiler explodes: quite a few would-be George stephensons end up wafted into the afterlife as clouds of necessarily pink steam.

** 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.
