* Inverted in ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'', a reimagination of ''Anime/MazingerZ''. In the OVA, Dr. Hell [[spoiler:dies because his base exploded while he was trying to escape]]. When GoNagai penned the ''Mazinkaiser'' manga, [[spoiler:Kouji shoots him]] in an abrupt, albeit iconic and stylized, sequence.

* In a lot of assault, battery, and homicide cases, both parties will argue that they were simply acting in self-defense. Probably the most infamous example is the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Trayvon_Martin fatal shooting]] of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trayvon_Martin Trayvon Martin]] by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Zimmerman George Zimmerman]]: each side tried to portray the other side as the aggressor, and the jury eventually acquitted Zimmerman of manslaughter and second-degree murder. ''[[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment And that's all we]] [[Film/ForrestGump have to say about that.]]''

* Happens in episode 23 of ''Anime/CrossAnge'': Ange, after refusing to help the citizens who are still hostile towards her, [[BoomHeadshot shoots]] the one who has a shotgun pointed in her direction before he even gets a chance to shoot. Lest we forget, these people were screaming for her death half a season earlier and were pinning the loss of Mana on her.

** However, a later issue of Marvel Team-Up complicates the matter once more. In this issue, Spider-Man is teamed up with the Black Widow to stop the Silver Samurai. In an effort to distract the heroes, the Silver Samurai damages the base of a nearby building that is under construction, causing a worker to fall off the roof. Spider-Man immediately leaps up the building to catch the man with his webbing, ''while his internal monologue is this:'' "Careful! Snag him smooth and let his momentum swing him towards me. No sudden jerks or his neck will snap like a dry twig. ''Like Gwendy's neck snapped.''"

*** They also use it in ''WesternAnimation/LEGOStarWarsTheYodaChronicles''. Han shoots a Stormtrooper in "The Empire Strikes Out", and Threepio says "My stars, Han shot first!" Han replies "Of course I shot first. It was him or me. Why wouldn't I shoot first?"

** Played straight in the video game adaption of the same, though. There, Gollum ambushes the hobbits inside Mount Doom and steals the Ring, leading to Frodo fighting him as the FinalBoss and personally shoving him into the lava.

* Deliberately averted in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'', according to Joss Whedon as "a reaction to the Greedo incident in the revised Star Wars." Malcolm Reynolds, who is a CombatPragmatist {{Antihero}}, has no problems with shooting first.
-->'''Operative:''' I want to resolve this like civilized men. I'm not threatening you... I'm unarmed.\\
'''Mal:''' Good. [Mal {{Quick Draw}}s his gun and shoots the Operative.]
