* Paladin in ''Series/HaveGunWillTravel''. In one episode, he's forced into a gunfight and wins. That doesn't make him this trope. The enemy was a professional gunslinger who's stated to have killed twelve men. That's still not what makes him fit this trope. No, what makes him fit this trope is that he let the professional draw first, and ''still'' managed to kill his opponent before the man even got off a shot.

* ''Film/{{Robocop 2014}}''. Murphy walks into the police station and confronts a fellow officer with evidence of him being a DirtyCop.

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]].
