* The 2010 ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'' features this as a gameplay mechanic for one or two missions, complete with a helpful icon that appears to let you know you have successfully [[StandardStatusEffects suppressed the enemy machine gunner]] (for a few moments, anyways).

** In later editions, you can take being pinned down as a tradeoff against casualties. Essentially, infantry units can "go to ground", giving them an improved cover save but hampering them for the next turn.

* Generally, every gun fight in MatthewReilly's books. This is the most common form of gunfire used in his books, except when he breaks out the ImprobableAimingSkills at least.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' the Covenant will keep firing at the last position they saw you since you last ducked behind cover. Trying to re-emerge there will probably get your shields shot off in short order, but if all their focus is there...

* In an early SilverAge ComicBook/CaptainAmerica story, Cap is fighting Nazis at Castle Greymoore, but he is eventually pined down by suppression fire away from his shield. Fortunately, Bucky, in the clutches of the Nazie, is able to overpower his guard and take his pistol to provide cover fire to recover Cap's shield. Bucky soon runs dry, but Cap's shield is more than enough on its own.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': This happened to the heros during the SchoolFestival's third day when they were trying to make it to the battles grounds. [[ColdSniper Mana]] had OneHitKO rounds that send anything they touch forward in time to the battle's end (which they've presumably lost), and when they tried to hide in a trolley, she shot the trolley itself, sending the entire vehicle to the future. They managed to escape when [[TheHero Negi]] used his own {{Magitech}} TimeMachine to escape the in the last second. [[{{Ninja}} Kaede]] stayed behind to hold off Mana while the rest went ahead.

* In ''FullMetalJacket'', the squad is pinned down by one sniper. It isn't pretty. Especially since it tries them to get out of their cover by repeatedly shooting an injured but still alive squadmate.

* Parakewl and Mauchi tried this during ''TowerOfGod'''s Hide and Seek test on Quant. Keyword is tried.
** Funnily enough, Hatsu, who before managed to hold Quant down for a few seconds, relied on them to do exactly this with their javelins, but they simply ran away.
