* The Saint of Killers from ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' is explicitly described as having a draw so fast the policemen attacking him only saw blurs. This also serves to neutralize the protagonist's CompellingVoice, by threatening to shoot him the exact second he heard a single syllable from him.

* ''Manga/BlackLagoon''. Yakuza thug Chaka challenges Revy to a quick draw contest, with them drawing when the soda can he's holding hits the floor.

She then leads him to Ginji, who challenges Chaka to his own quick draw contest, with Ginji [[KatanasAreJustBetter only armed with a samurai sword]]. [[BadAss Ginji wins]] and [[WorthyOpponent Revy can't resist challenging him herself]]. He turns her down the first time, but not the second.

* In the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Han Solo is shown to be a very fast draw. All three of Brian Daley's Solo novels feature Han in quick draw situations. In HanSoloAtStarsEnd and HanSolosRevenge, [[spoiler: Han uses trickery and avoids a true fight against, respectively, Uul Rha Shan and Gallandro.]] In HanSoloAndTheLostLegacy, [[spoiler: Han actually does draw against Gallandro, and loses, getting wounded. Shortly thereafter, Gallandro is outdrawn...by automated FrickinLaserBeams.]]

* ''Film/{{Robocop 2014}}''. Murphy walks into the police station and confronts a fellow officer with evidence of him being a DirtyCop. Despite the evidence playing on the computer screens for the entire department to see ([[TakingYouWithMe or perhaps because of this]]) he decides to draw his weapon to kill Robocop, who is sitting right in front of him with his armoured visor up, suffering visible gunshot damage from an earlier battle. Unfortunately Murphy's enhanced cyborg reflexes are working just fine.

* ''Literature/BandsOfMourning'' (third book of ''Literature/WaxAndWayne''): Wax's EvilUncle Edwarn mockingly challenges him to an old-fashioned duel, saying that the chance to legally murder people is all that lawmen like Wax want. Both their guns and bullets are aluminum, so that means no [[MagnetismManipulation Allomancy]] to interfere. Wax, however, has done tests with his friends, and knows that normal humans all draw at about the same speed; the first one to draw gets to shoot first, and that's it. [[spoiler:Therefore, he doesn't even bother trying. Instead he just charges forward, tanking Edwarn's shot and tackling him, letting Wax capture him. This also proves that Edwarn was wrong about him: A lawman's job isn't to kill people, it's to take the hit so somebody else doesn't have to]].

* In the "Franchise/Resident Evil" novelizations by S.D Perry, namely the first one entitled The Umbrella Conspiracy, we learn more about the S.T.A.R.S backstories and skills. For instance, Chris Redfield is known as the marksman of the S.T.A.R.S Alpha Team, edging out his friendly rival in the Bravo Team, Forest Speyer. However, Barry Burton reflects that, while Chris is the better "take aim and make your shot" marksman, Barry excels at the Quick draw, hitting his target unerringly from the hip. Given Barry's established role as the S.T.A.R.S weapons specialist, gun connoisseur, his membership with the N.R.A and his particular love for Revolvers (namely, his beloved Colt Python .357 Magnum), this is understandable.
