* ''Film/ForGreaterGlory'' ends with a priest-turned-revolutionary, Jose Reyas Vega, taking a bullet to the head without having confessed his sins. He lives another 5 hours until his allies could find a priest to give him his last rites. (Vega was a real person, and allegedly did live for hours after his head wound.)

* ''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]].

* ''Bullet in the Head'' is the actual title of a classic JohnWoo film. Context is needed here - three friends make the mistake of their lives and participate in a drug deal, but one of them betrays another for the cash by covering his head in a jacket and putting about three bullets in at point-blank range. Fast forward to the present, the poor bugger is still allive but addicted to morphine to take away the pain - forcing the one remaining friend to perform a MercyKill. What most people take from this movie is the remaining guy vs the EvilFormerFriend in a ridiculously ''awesome'' CarFu duel in the finale.
