* In ''Series/TheExpanse'' the guards on Dresden's secret research station had guns loaded with gel rounds, that for some reason were colored blood red so that the already jumpy OPA boarding party (who ''weren't'' using gel rounds) panicked when one of them took a gel to the helmet. None of the guards survived.

* A scenario in the old ''[[HeroSystem Adventurer's Club]]'' magazine called for the [=PCs=] to be spies trying to infiltrate a company headquarters. This was actually a training mission, and the "guards" carried guns loaded with specialized ammo that ''felt'' like a normal bullet but didn't do the damage. The [=GM=] was told to tell the players they'd taken damage based on the caliber of gun they were shot with, but track the actual damage secretly until someone got around to checking the injury. (One option for this scenario involved real criminals trying to break into the "headquarters" while the [=PCs=] were in the middle of their infiltration ... and their weapons were ''real''.)

* ''Film/XXx'' features both standard tranq rounds and a "blood drop" round that not only delivers a dose of tranquilizer but includs a blood squib that makes it look like the tranq'd target is actually shot with a standard bullet.

* These exist to some degree in RealLife; tracer rounds (which are essentially bullets with built in flares to help the gunner correct their aim. The US Military also uses them near the end of a magazine to tell soldiers when their magazine is low.) See also rubber bullets and "dum dum" bullets. This kind of thing can be found in most calibers but shotgun shells take the overall award; ignoring stuff like grenades and other weapons we have;
** Slug rounds

** Airburst rounds. Close enough to a grenade, the whole idea is to explode right after a barrier such as around a window, thus granting no cover to those hiding.
** There are also military training rounds that have the same results as paintballs but are sized like normal rounds and fired from a slightly modified but otherwise standard issue gun (same exterior, slightly changed interior; you wouldn't know the difference otherwise).

They have the same general shape, but these changes are intentionally highly visible so that negligent mistakes and harmful accidents are not as likely to occur.
