* Played with in ''Webcomics/Freakangels''. One of the group is shot point blank, resulting in a ''very'' messy BoomHeadshot. So the others are naturally stunned when, much later, he walks into the resident doctor's office complaining of a headache, with a giant gaping hole through his head. It's made clear that there is some form of HealingFactor at work.

* The Courier in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is shot in the head at close range, ''twice'', and buried in a shallow grave at the very beginning of the game. Naturally, being the PlayerCharacter, they get better, though some quick work on the part of an escort robot and the local doctor, along with being the Fallout universe, could affect the outcome. Amusingly, if the player sets their characters intelligence stat to 1, Doc Mitchell will profusely apologize as he feels it was his fault for doing a shoddy job.

Amusingly, if the player sets their characters intelligence stat to 1, Doc Mitchell will profusely apologize as he feels it was his fault for doing a shoddy job. With charisma stat at 1 he'll muse that the cause "must be frontal lobe damage". It's only a bullet to the brain because Maria ''really is that weak'': With max skill in Guns and Luck Maria can only do 20 points of damage. Even if the Courier has only 1 in Endurance and therefore could be knocked out with a light tap they ''still'' could survive the a headshot by Maria, something that Benny even notes.

** 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.
