* In the first chapter of ''Manga/CityHunter'' Ryo uses a gold-tipped .500 Nitro Express bullet so that, once shot in the ear of the target ([[ImprobableAimingSkills Ryo is just that good]]), it won't leave the skull and use all of its enormous power (it's an ''elephant bullet'') to move him. As the target is the challenger for a boxing championship who has murdered the previous challenger (leading to Ryo being hired by his fiancee to avenge him) and is threatening the life of the champion's daughter to fix the match, the well-timed shot has the effect of making it appear that the champion hit the challenger so hard it not only killed him, but [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom sent him flying out of the ring]].

* 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.
