* Averted in an unusual fashion in ''Film/IronMan''. Tony Stark ends up with his heart damaged by shrapnel, and instead of having the fragments removed, which would endanger his life, he gets an electromagnetic thingamajig implanted to keep the bits from killing him. [[spoiler:He finally goes and does it at the end of the third film.]]

However, in ''Film/IronMan3'', it's stated Tony probably ''should'' have it removed, he's just afraid of having the surgery, even if the long term consequences are worse.

* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode "Death's Door", Sam and Dean take the fact that the hospital staff was not rushing to remove the bullet as confirmation that said staff had given up hope of saving the victim [[spoiler:Bobby Singer. Also, the Reaper that comes for Bobby tells him that the bullet in his head is killing his brain.]]

** In an unusual variation, Castiel has to dig a bullet out of his stomach not because it's necessarily killing him, but because the bullet was cast out of an angel blade and it's the only weapon he has on hand to take out the angel guarding him [[EyeScream (by shoving it through the guy's eye)]]. It's implied he could bleed out over time, but he's likely more concerned with escape when he removes it.

** A WW2 example, there is a sunken Liberty Ship near London that was carrying a cargo of explosives. The ship hasn't been removed because of fears of the whole cargo blowing up.

* Played with in ''Series/HeroesReborn'', with [[Invisibility Farah Nazan]], [[BadassNormal Carlos]], [[Technopathy Micah]] and [[Intangibility Jose]] when [[spoiler: Farah is shot. Carlos, Jose, and Micah take her to the hospital, and try to help her. Jose manages to dig the bullets out of her stomach, except since he phases his hand into her chest, then phases the bullets out, it doesn't have the same medical implications as the other methods of bullet removal.]]
