* On ''TheEvent'', when DamselInDistress Leyla gets the drop on DarkActionGirl Vicki, Leyla manages to take her gun and fires, seeing Vicki tumble down the stairs from the impact. Later in the episode it is revealed that Vicki had previously loaded the gun with blanks, as part of a gambit to make her think she escaped so that she would call her boyfriend, who Vicki's superiors are trying desperately to locate.

* Done twice in the same episode of ''Series/{{Leverage}}'': first, "gunshots" were fired at a CorruptCorporateExecutive to convince him that he had hitmen after him, and he should go to the cops. Then, when that plan backfired spectacularly, a protagonist got "shot", and [[FakingTheDead played dead]], as the villains of the episode were ''actually'' going to shoot him.

** Reused in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', but this time [[spoiler: the so-called BigBad of the Thieves' Guild questline shoots you with a paralyzing arrow to avoid having to kill you. Your companion, the actual BigBad who [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy let you take the lead throughout the entire dungeon]], believes you dead]].

** The show's final episode starts with [[InMediaRes Ford being interrogated]] about a failed heist, in which the interrogator (and the audience) is led to believe until near the end that the rest of the cast, other than Ford, was killed. (The heist was actually successful: the team needed to pretend to be dead so they could sneak in as part of the investigation of the first, fake, heist.) One part of selling the deaths: a security camera caught Eliot being shot several times. The scene really happened, but the gunshots were of course acted.
