* Train Heartnet in ''Manga/BlackCat'' is probably the epitome of this, in that he throws bullets up into the air, cracks open his revolver, so that the handle flips back (its a custom weapon in this case, so at least that bit is somewhat feasible) then times a hand flick so it snaps back into position with the bullets grabbed in the revolver chambers.

Usually the UnorthodoxReload involves a lot of unnecessary and complicated choreography. In others, it involves incredible, mostly impossible, feats of physics that if attempted in reality, would either not work, jam the firearm in question or result in grievous bodily harm.

* ''{{Pathfinder}}'', the spiritual successor of Dungeons and Dragon's 3.5 edition, lampshades the above while taking it one step further. A gunslinger archetype, the Bolt Ace, of sufficient level gains an ability called Inexplicable Reload - as long as they have [[ManaMeter at least one point of Grit,]] their crossbow is always considered loaded and ready to fire at the beginning of his or her turn thanks to unconscious muscle memory making the action essentially automatic. Additionally, this grants further benefit to the Rapid Reload feat, reducing the reload time for a crossbow, normally a free action, [[UpToEleven to even less than that.]]

* In one episode of ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' Revy reloads one of her pistols by loading a magazine into it using her teeth. While still firing at her opponents with the other one. Now that is badass.

* Sato from ''Manga/{{Ajin}}'': During a battle with the [[SWATTeam Special Assault Team]], [[MagnificentBastard Sato]] makes use of "quickloader" tubes to rapidly reload his pump-action shotgun.

* ''Film/TheDarkTower'': Roland pulls off some very impressive reloads with his revolvers, including rapidly dropping individual bullets into a spinning cylinder, trailing his open cylinders along his belt as he pushes bullets into the chambers with his thumbs, using speedloader rigs on his belt to reload quickly, and even catching two moon clips in mid air with both of his guns cylinders before quickly opening fire.

** The Spy uses both hands to reload his revolver, which is fine... unless he has also activated the Invis Watch on his left wrist (which also appears on-screen), making him appear to have three hands. Additionally, when he reloads some of his unlockable revolvers, it has--say it with us--the same oversight as the Lugermorph; he doesn't put any bullets in the barrel, nor do any bullets eject.
*** And on one revolver, the Enforcer, the Spy's ''left hand'' disappears instead of the bullets, which levitate into and out of the chambers of their own accord.

* Rushuna Tendou from ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}'' stores extra bullets in her [[VictoriasSecretCompartment considerable cleavage]] - when she needs to reload, she [[{{Gainaxing}} somehow manages to eject the exact number of bullets from there]] and then scoops them out of the air with her revolver. While ''[[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning]]''! And she isn't the only character able to do that!
** While spinning ''and'' performing GunKata to dodge bullets. As in forty villains, all firing at her with modern rifles.
