There are people with impossibly good aim. And then there are people with impossibly bad aim. Some people have such atrocious aim that it becomes a joke that the safest place to be when they're shooting is where they're aiming at. Indeed, their projectiles (And it is by no means limited to bullets) may break the laws of physics to show how horrible their aim is. Unlike Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy, this is a trait of an individual, and is often lampshaded, if not called out specifically.
- A joke used in some Archie Comics has the person (often Veronica) be such a horrible aim during snowball fights that she hits everybody except who she's aiming at. The comic usually ends with her throwing at somebody completely different, hitting their intended target.
- The giants of Ettinsmoor in the Chronicles of Narnia novel The Silver Chair. Puddleglum suggests that he and the children would be safer if the giants were throwing rocks at them, instead of each other.
- In The Flash Season two episode, "Welcome to Earth-2", alternate Earth Floyd Lawton is a detective at Central City P.D and is know for/shown to have atrocious aim - this is particularly humourous as Floyd's Earth-1 counterpart was Deadshot, renowned for his excellent accuracy.
- The sheriff in the one-act play Possessed In The West has such legendarily bad aim that he was known to wing people standing behind him.
- The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin: Tweeg regularly bombards Newton Gimmick's house with a cannon from his tower. His aim is so bad that there's a neat, clean ring of cannonballs all around his house.
