** Dick Grayson took a bullet to the back of the head towards the end of the ''Return of Bruce Wayne'' arc. It was intentionally underpowered so that it wouldn't kill him instantly. Rather, it caused severe bleeding in his brain that would eventually kill him unless he received medical attention.

* ''ComicBook/HaloBloodLine'': Black-Two survives a shot to the head by a Covenant beam rifle (basically a particle cannon used a sniper rifle). After a period of unconsciousness, she dismisses it as having a headache. To put this in perspective, getting shot ''in the leg'' by a beam rifle in ''{{VideoGame/Halo 2}}'' was an instant OneHitKill.

** Happens in ''Film/TheXFilesFightTheFuture''. It's {{handwave}}d by saying the bullet only grazed Mulder's skull, although that's a little odd since he was shot at point blank range. In any case, as soon as he wakes up a couple hours later he escapes the hospital, and within 48 hours he's off to [[spoiler:Antarctica to carry his partner out of a massive underground alien spacecraft on foot]].
