* In ''Discworld/ReaperMan'', Death's climactic duel with his replacement borrows from both ''Film/HighNoon'' and ''Film/ForAFewDollarsMore''. It even takes place at midnight, though Death sneers at this ham-handed attempt at drama.

** ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'' has a three-way showdown. In a cemetery. With [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome incredible music.]] It also provides a StandardSnippet for these sorts of scenes.

* [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome The Megaman remix-band]] TheMegas make the battle between Megaman and Quickman sound like an embodiment of this trope. It's all built up with Quickman as the "sheriff"; with lines such as "Quick on the draw, in this town I am the law. Is what they say true? Does death wear blue? Can he fall?" The conclusion comes with "My circuits slow. I'm not scared anymore. Reach for my weapon and in turn you're reaching for yours. My circuits slow. What they said is a lie. The shots are heard and the bullets scream death as they fly", essentially also making this an example of a SingleStrokeBattle. In the end, the winner is [[spoiler: Megaman. But what did you expect? He's the hero.]]

* The endings of the western spoofs ''Film/SupportYourLocalSheriff'' and ''Film/SupportYourLocalGunfighter'' are both extended parodies of this trope.

* The endings of the western spoofs ''Film/SupportYourLocalSheriff'' and ''Film/SupportYourLocalGunfighter'' are both extended parodies of this trope. The first film also has the eponymous sheriff dealing with a series of hired guns who all confront him in this fashion: "Why do these jaspers always hit town at mealtime?"

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' naturally had a few variations on the theme.
** One gag has multiple pairs of people waiting in line for their shootouts. That is, lined up behind each other. On all four branches of a crossroads.
** ''The Tenderfoot'' has one at the climax, but the titular tenderfoot, an ImperturbablePom, uses the ten-steps-and-turn-method, which completely destabilizes the villain, [[spoiler:even moreso when his shot appears to go wild. On seeing the Englishman yet to fire, the villain begs for mercy, after which the Englishman reveals he'd been hit in the arm, and the pain was simply unbearable.]]
** One story had an IJustWannaBeBadass guy ask Luke for help impressing his fiancee by winning a gunfight. Unfortunately, his aim is so bad Luke has to duck despite standing behind him. In the end he challenges Luke, [[spoiler:both men are replaced by his LoveInterest / a saloon girl respectively]], he kills a criminal completely by accident, and this reputation is enough to keep desperadoes out of town ever after.
* ''ComicBook/TheFarSide'':
** One strip mentions that before its replacement by its sharper cousin, duels in the West involved fighting with Bowie... spoons.
** One duel has one guy yelling out words that rhyme with "Draw!" to check the other guy's hearing.
** One duel has the loser claim he was certain the turnaround was supposed to be after ''eleven'' steps.
* ''{{ComicBook/Hitman}}'' has Tommy go up against a telepathic gunslinger who can and will outdraw anyone due to reading their minds. The BigBad mockingly asks how Tommy's going to beat that, Nat obligingly provides the answer: [[spoiler:have your buddy blow his head off while he's not looking]].

*** It also features a subversion in the opening moments of the film. Three men dismount on opposite ends of a dead silent little town, two of them traveling together. They walk ominously towards each other, eventually stopping almost within arms' reach in front of a saloon. They reach for their guns, draw... and all three rush into the saloon and start shooting at Tuco, aka the Ugly.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has the character [=McCree=], an {{Expy}} of the Man With No Name. When using his ultimate ''Deadeye'' ability, [=McCree=] will drawl "It's high noon ..." and fire a kill shot at each target in view once the attack charges. There's even a tumbleweed.
** [=McCree=] will always say "It's high noon" even on maps where it's clearly twilight or night time, leading to MemeticMutation that he has [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyschronometria a very bad perception of time.]] [[AscendedMeme The writers realized this]], and later gave [=McCree=] the voice line "Well, [[Music/AlanJackson It's high noon]] [[Music/JimmyBuffett somewhere]] in the world."
