* Almost subverted in ''Series/RedDwarf'': from a GELF, an arrow twanging into a tree (and not into you) is really considered a very warm greeting.

* Happens several times on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', when a vampire would suddenly get dusted, to reveal the Slayer standing in his place holding a stake. There were also examples with actual arrows in "Pangs" and "Spiral", when Buffy is up against AnachronismStew villains.

* This is Oliver's preferred way of entering a fight scene in Series/{{Arrow}}. In the first season, The Hood would announce his presence by shooting out all the lights. Over time, Oliver has amassed quite a few trick arrows that explode or emit knockout gas following the initial one.

* Arya Stark of ''{{A Song of Ice and Fire}}'' is introduced this way to the Archer of the Brotherhood Without Banners -- a RobinHood-homaging merry band of anarcho-communist guerrilla fighters.
** Theon Greyjoy also did this to save Bran from bandits, and was very annoyed about getting yelled at for it, because the guy might have been wearing armor, or lived long enough to kill Bran.

* In ''TheWitcher'' novels it is mentioned that the Dryads used to warn humans who wandered into their domain this way. The problem was that a panicking peasant (especially children) was just as likely to run deeper into the forest as he was to run away. Geralt notes that they recently mostly abandoned this in favor of a simple sneak attack.

* Locke from ''Series/{{Lost}}'' spoke for the first time after throwing a knife into an airplane seat while the group of Losties were talking about how they were going to get food. Locke's response after his TwangHello was "We hunt." Jack's quote at the top of the page was his response to that.
** This was not the first time Locke had spoken, but it was the moment that he {{Took a Level In Badass}}.
