* ''Film/IShotJesseJames'': A type 1 version appears here, taking shots at Robert Ford from a distance before giving up because he ran out of ammo. He admits that he only did it because he wants the reputation of killing the man who killed UsefulNotes/JesseJames, and Bob is understandably angry. [[PetTheDog He lets the boy go, however,]] but not before warning him to never do it again.

* The short story "The Conqueror" by RichardMatheson plays with this. [[spoiler: It starts as Type 3, only the kid is just plain ambushed by the friends of the men he killed and shot to pieces. And then we find out that he may just have been a PsychopathicManchild who was planning to kill his way across the plains as the baddest gunfighter ever.]]

In a rarer scenario, TheGunfighterWannabe challenges someone who he thinks is TheGunslinger but isn't. So the Wannabe ends up killing some {{Cowboy}} or CitySlicker, and is promptly branded an {{Outlaw}} -- but discovers that he lacks the ''cojones'' for banditry. This usually ends with the other bandits killing or abandoning him. Occasionally this results in a HeelFaceTurn, but since RedemptionEqualsDeath, it usually doesn't end well.

* Many a mook in ''Anime/BlackLagoon'' falls under this trope, with fatal consequences for them. Most notable is [[TooDumbToLive Chaka]]. He's obsessed with how awesome [[RevolversAreJustBetter his revolver is]] and immediately tries talking tough to [[ActionGirl Revee]] as soon as he meets her. He doesn't get better.
