The hero that GunsAndGunplayTropes are for.

It should be noted that for a while, guns and bullets were considered vulgar. Point, fire, they drop dead. This is so mundane that monsters and heroes who were [[RuleOfCool cool enough]] became ImmuneToBullets. After all, if it were that easy, [[FiveRoundsRapid the police would be]] [[ShootingSuperman able to deal with it]].

However, certain genres have [[RuleOfCool put the "cool"]] back into guns. It's all about style, so expect a lot of flourishes that wouldn't work in real life, such as using GunsAkimbo.

The Gunslinger is this hero. They might be from TheWestern, FilmNoir, HeroicBloodshed or just plain scenery-destroying action flicks. A wandering gunslinger is often TheDrifter, one specifically out to do good is also the KnightErrant. But overall for some reason, alongside the {{Cowboy}}, gunslingers have also become a cultural image of American people and American warrior culture abroad.[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9xmoyD6muk]]

The Gunslinger comes in a few styles:
* '''[[ImprobableAimingSkills The Trick Shot]]:''' Can shoot the wings off the back of a fly while hanging upside down and having to ricochet off a wall or two. Will occasionally interact with surroundings using same pistol.
* '''[[MoreDakka The Vaporizer]]:''' Who cares if one bullet misses when some of the 2,000 rounds will inevitably hit? And explode? This version relies on {{BFG}}s and [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} lots and lots of dakka]].
* '''[[GunFu The Woo]]:''' Tends to be an expert with BulletTime and GunFu, with an emphasis on [[{{Handguns}} pistols]], very close combat, and [[SuperSpeed the ability to move faster than a million different pieces of supersonic lead]]. Alternatively, a master of GunKata. The version most likely to use [[GunsAkimbo two guns at once.]]
* '''The QuickDraw:''' There's a hole in your head where that thought of squaring up against this guy used to be. And what shots others happen to sneak are ''[[ShootTheBullet intercepted mid-flight]]''.

The YoungGun is a Gunslinger in infancy. You get double bonus points if [[GirlsWithGuns your gunslinger is a girl]]. Also expect [[MarkedBullet Marked Bullets]] to be used. Particularly skilled gunslingers may [[ICallHerVera name their weapons]] -- [[CargoShip whatever that implies]]. Gunslingers who obsess over their weapons or tend to collect them are probably {{Gun Nut}}s.

For the eponymous Creator/StephenKing hero who epitomizes the trope, see ''Literature/TheGunslinger''. For the Beverly Garland[=/=]Creator/RogerCorman film (and [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] episode), see ''Film/{{Gunslinger}}.'' Also has nothing to do with [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 mechanical arms.]]

Compare SuperheroPackingHeat, SamuraiCowboy. For a character with similar traits who uses longer ranged weapons, see the ColdSniper and FriendlySniper.

Their JustForFun/SwordCounterpart would be MasterSwordsman. A SmokingBarrelBlowout usually finishes off a successful shot.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Train Heartnet from ''Manga/BlackCat'' combines elements from several types. He also practices GunKata.
* Genjyo Sanzo from ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' is definitely The Trick Shot, being able to [[spoiler: shoot a seed implanted next to Gojyo's heart by Chin Yiso without hitting the heart]]. In ''Reload'', he also managed to hit [[spoiler: Ukoku]] with a pistol 3 times the size of his weapon of choice...which he had never fired before, not even once...while suffering from multiple broken bones.
** Said pistol had belonged to another Gunslinger in the series, Gatto Nenehawk, who was a The Vaporizer and used HUGE twin pistols.
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': Spike Spiegel borrows elements from The Woo and The Quick Draw. Mad Pierrot is The Vaporizer.
* ''Anime/{{Noir}}''; Kirika has a near-mystical gift for firearms, accurately shooting without looking or while performing leaps, rarely if ever missing; she is explicitly The Trick Shot. As one fan review put it, "Kirika isn't a {{ninja}}, she's a witch."
* The title character of ''Anime/{{Madlax}}'' also fits under The Trick Shot, though she ventures into GunKata territory (and thus The QuickDraw) during the final episodes.
* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'':
** Integra Hellsing is a skilled markswoman and swordswoman. [[ChurchMilitant Heinkel Wolf]] also [[GunsAkimbo Duel Wields]] pistols. Seras Victoria and (to a slightly lesser extent) Rip van Winkle qualify more as SmallGirlBigGun.
** Seras Victoria, meanwhile, is a solid Vaporizer. The Harkonnen (her WeaponOfChoice) weighs well over 100 pounds, and can blow up an airship. And let's not talk about her wielding GunsAkimbo [[MoreDakka flak artilleries]]...
* ''Manga/SamuraiGun'', naturally, makes heavy use of this trope in its SteamPunk Historical Japan setting. The main character, Ichimatsu, and by extent the other Samurai Guns, are a combination of The Trick Shot and The Woo. Vaporizers show up in several episodes of the anime, including a minigun-toting ImplacableMan who is only fighting because it's the only way to keep up the supply of medicine he needs to keep his sick mother alive. The main member of the Anti-Samurai Gun Unit (in the anime, at least) is actually a blend of several types; his primary weapon is a SteamPunk Uzi, but he has the same bullet-dodging training as a Samurai Gun and once proves accurate enough to shoot his opponent's bullet out of the air.
* Vash from ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' embodies Trick Shot, The Woo, and The QuickDraw, as he tries to ''avoid'' gunplay whenever he can, but when he gets into it, nothing can beat him. His traveling partner Nicolas Wolfwood completes the set as the embodiment of The Vaporizer (with some Woo thrown in), complete with a combination rocket launcher/machine gun/shotgun/pistol rack in the shape of a ''cross''.
** The Bernardelli girls: Meryl Stryfe, despite packing [[WalkingArmory 50 derringers]] under her cape, is shown to be a Trick Shot artist, able to aim accurately on the run. Milly Thompson (who normally carries her [[{{BFG}} huge Stungun]] under her cape) would be a Vaporizer if not for the fact her weapon is less-lethal.
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' is an anime with two Gun Fu experts who use two pistols at close quarters as well as a huge number of gunmen (and women). One of those totes around a minigun...
** More specifically, Balalaika is The Trick Shot, Roberta and Gretel are Vaporizers, and Revy is The Woo.
*** Eda, who we haven't seen fight much, appears to be a QuickDraw artist. For evidence, in the episode Calm Down, Two men, she's a faster draw than Revy, though not by much. That itself should be noteworthy, considering Revy's considerable skill.
*** And everyone leaves out poor Mr. Chang, who is a surgeon with the more precise types.
* Rally Vincent from ''Manga/GunsmithCats'' is most definitely a TrickShot. More bizarre tricks with a pistol than you can shake a stick at.
* Rushuna Tendo from ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}'' also combines Trick Shot and The Woo into a uniquely anime gun-style, and at one point engages in a full-scale GunKata duel with a rival in the final episode.
** Rushuna also covers The QuickDraw. While wielding one six-shooter, she has outshot a multi-barreled machine gun by not only shooting the bullets out of the air but hitting them so precisely they then blocked entire chains of other bullets.
* All of the main characters from ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. The girl are made to be so, as they're girls who have been converted into {{cyborg}}s and given paramilitary training to become assassins. Their handlers are from a variety of police and military organizations.
* While her [[GunsAkimbo guns]] are very small, Natsuki from ''Anime/MaiHime'' is definitely a Vaporizer (since her CHILD can fire missiles and incredibly powerful beams of ice.) Her ''Anime/MaiOtome'' counterpart gets a personal {{BFG}}.
* Depending on the weapon he's using, Gene Starwind of ''Anime/OutlawStar'' alternates between Trick Shot (pistols), or The Vaporizer (machine guns or rocket launchers)
* Usopp in ''Manga/OnePiece'' somehow manages to be a Trick Shot without ever actually using a firearm (at least not one using traditional chemical propulsion). Apparently, he inherits it from his father, who, while we never see being engaged in any particularly amazing examples, brags about being a Trick Shot all of the time.
* A villanious example can be found in Hol Horse from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''; a Trick Shot, thanks to the fact that his Stand, the Emperor, is a revolver that lets him control the trajectory of its bullets.
** From part 5 we have Guido Mista whose stand Sex Pistols manifest as 6 imps who guide his bullets.
** Another example from the [=JoJoVerse=] is [[AffablyEvil Ringo]] [[PunchClockVillain Roadagain,]] a semi-villainous example. He's a very solid QuickDraw. He has some Trick Shot in him, but that's a subtle subversion. He knows the most accurate distance for just about any revolver out there and he never fires one step outside of that range, which is why he never misses.
* In the anime ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'', most of the heroes gunsling quite a bit, particuarly the GunsAkimbo, [[HandCannon M13 Jericho]] wielding android Tres Iqus who has all three styles pretty much nailed (given that Gunslinger is actually his callsign this isn't at all suprising).
* In several displays of skill, Riza Hawkeye from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' combines ALL FOUR of the above types. Trick Shot is shown in her incredible long-distance sniping skill, while Vaporizer and The Woo are shown in her battles with the homunculi. Finally, QuickDraw is shown in Roy's fight with Scar.
* Mana Tatsumiya and Yuna Akashi of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. Mana is a combination of Trick Shot and The Woo: she [[GunsAkimbo dual wields]] ''[[HandCannon Desert Eagles]]'', which is perhaps only marginally made believable by [[HugeSchoolgirl her size]] and is so skillful with a sniper rifle that she can also [[ImprobableAimingSkills use ricocheting to work around the fact that her targets are behind a wall]], but in close-range combat she falls into GunFu mode. Yuna is an obvious QuickDraw who uses twin pistols.
* Teana Lanster of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' is a MagicalGirl gunslinger who uses The Woo style. ''Audioplay/StrikersSoundStageX'' shows her adding some Vaporizer to her fighting style in the form of [[spoiler:[[WaveMotionGun Starlight Breaker]]]]. [[Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce Force's]] Arnage is a solid Vaporizer - Quad {{Gatling| Good}}s, ho!
* Ryoma from ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane''.
* Brandon Heat/Death Beyond the Grave from ''VideoGame/{{Gungrave}}'': while during his human life Brandon preferred Trick Shot, The Woo, and QuickDraw, super-human strength of his undead state allowed him to carry big enough guns (the [[HandCannon Cerberus handguns]] and the [[{{BFG}} coffin]]) to add The Vaporizer to the list.
* Daisuke Jigen from ''Franchise/LupinIII'' is an expert shot who uses a custom .357 Magnum revolver to be the Trick Shot, The Woo, and the QuickDraw (0.3 seconds). Because of his strength in an array of guns, including rocket launchers and sniper rifles (which he ''shoots from the waist'' in ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro''), he also qualifies as The Vaporizer. He actually dislikes MoreDakka, saying that shooting ''more'' shots isn't better, especially when ''one'' will do the trick. He proves it in ''Anime/LupinIIIStolenLupin'', where he has a ''broken'' gun, and one bullet. This, against an enemy with automatic weapons in each hand.
** Lupin, Fujiko, and Zenigata are also good with their guns, but Lupin's the clear number two. His use of misdirection and disguise make him a better trick shot than Jigen, although many movies have Lupin's gun wrecked before he can fire.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Primera Espada Coyote Starrk's released form is that of a traditional wild-west outlaw equipped with a pair of guns. For the most part, he has exhibited Vaporizer and The Woo, albeit in a [[KamehameHadoken x100]] fashion.
** [[spoiler: Suifeng's Bankai is a shoulder-mounted missile-launcher. Pure Vaporizer.]]
** [[SmallGirlBigGun Ururu]] beat Starrk as the first gunslinger by hundreds of chapters. She's a Vaporizer.
** The Stern Ritter "N" Robert Accutrone manifests his cross as a relatively ordinary looking pistol. This being Bleach, everything is but ordinary and the guy actually [[spoiler:shoots out ''Shunsui's'' eye. Something even Starrk couldn't do.]]
** Stern Ritter "X" Lille Barro wields a powerful sniper rifle in combat. He's a mix of Vaporizer and QuickDraw, [[spoiler: able to blow a hole through the head of a Zero Squad member faster than she can react]] and whose special power, 'The X-Axis', [[spoiler: allows him to [[UnblockableAttack pierce anything in a straight line between the muzzle and the target, making defense absolutely useless]].]]
* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Death the Kid is a combination. His usual style of a [[{{Shinigami}} (literally)]] inhuman turn of speed, close-combat and GunFu falls under C, whereas Death Cannon and his other soul resonance attacks are B.
** The [[EquippableAlly Thompson Sisters]] themselves also fit the trope. While they're technically the weapons of Death the Kid, they've both shown the ability to fight using each other quite proficiently. [[spoiler: Even more so now that Patty's become Liz's meister and Kid's possibly gone through a FaceHeelTurn.]]
* [[FourStarBadass General]] Cross Marian of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' uses [[EmpathicWeapon Innocence]] in the form of a [[RevolversAreJustBetter revolver]]. He's a combination of Vaporizer and The Woo, and definitely qualifies as one of the most badass characters in the series.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' has Austin O'Brien, who pulls this off by firing trading cards from his duel disk, which doubles as gun. Said trading cards explode upon impact for [[RuleofCool some unexplained reason]].
** He duels this way too. Everyone else in the show is TheBeastmaster, commanding their monsters to attack. He just shoots you repeatedly with Blaze Accelerator ([[AbnormalAmmo which uses cards as ammo]]).
* C.T. Smith from ''Manga/ZombiePowder''; he had Trick Shot and The Woo in spades, with a splash of QuickDraw due to his super speed.
* [[ArtificialHuman Synthetic Human]] Zoichi Kanoe, of ''Manga/{{Biomega}}'', exhibits all types in virtually every fight he's involved in.
* ChildSoldier Jonah from ''Manga/{{Jormungand}}'' is both The Trick Shot and The QuickDraw, which is quite unnerving to his mercenary teammates due to his young age. He also is not afraid to do a bit of Vaporizing when the situation requires it.
* In ''LightNovel/KinosJourney'' Kino is a formidable quick draw, often seen practicing it and later putting it to use with very effective results.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has two MagicalGirl Gunslingers, both Vaporizers. [[CoolBigSis Mami Tomoe]], prefers GunFu with a supply of single-shot muskets, but finishes with a BFG. And Homura Akemi, who combines her gunslinging composed of many military-grade weapons (including machine guns and [=RPGs=]) with lots of explosives and [[spoiler:[[TimeStandsStill stopping time]]]].
** In ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]]'' Mami and Homura end up having a gun fight. [[spoiler: It was technically a draw.]]
* Ryo Saeba from ''Manga/CityHunter'', a mercenary/bodyguard who has ImprobableAimingSkills with his handgun, making him a Trick Shot.
* Yoko from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has elements of Trick Shot and Vaporizer. She carries an over-sized, high-energy sniper rifle with her wherever she goes..
* Akane from ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'' is normally a nice, quiet girl. Upon her transformation into a Kampfer however, her badass side appears along with a gun, and then starts firing at pretty much everything in sight she decides she doesn't like.
* Bisca from ''Manga/FairyTail'' is the female half of a gunslinging BattleCouple with Alzack. [[CannotSpitItOut Neither of them seems able to admit their feelings for one another]].
* Maya from ''Anime/BurnUp W/Excess''. Being a GunNut, she's so crazy for her weapons that [[ICallHerVera she gives them names]]. Vaporizer, given that most of her arsenal qualifies as "big guns" ''and'' she has an itchy trigger finger.
** Her ''Anime/BurnUp Scramble'' incarnation leans more towards a Trick Shot, showcasing more shooting skill and less desire to just shoot.
* ''VideoGame/{{Medabots}}'': [[JapaneseBeetleBrothers KBT-type]] Medabots, including [[TheHero Metabee]], are designed for shooting techniques. Metabee is both a Trick Shot, with his precision-firing revolver on his right arm; and a Vaporizer, with a quick-firing submachine gun on his left arm.
* In ''LightNovel/DateALive'', Kurumi Tokisaki wields a musket and a flintlock pistol that resemble the minute and hour hands of a clock. They not only fire regular bullets but also serve as the catalyst for her TimeMaster powers.
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' has several, but overall less than you'd expect from a series about the {{Mafia}}.
** The [[TitleCharacter eponymous hitman]] himself, Reborn, is the most notable example, and is an undisputed master of the Trick Shot. In one instance, he appears to misfire at the ground, only to have the bullets emerge from the earth ''several seconds later'' to [[ExactlyWhatIAimedAt strike his target with perfect accuracy]].
** Xanxus, leader of the [[PsychoForHire Varia]], [[GunsAkimbo dual-wields]] Dying Will Guns that shoot out a beam of his highly destructive Flames of Wrath. Xanxus follows the path of the Vaporizer, as his named techniques largely involve him unloading a [[MoreDakka constant barrage]] on his opponent without any finesse whatsoever.
** Fabio, also known as Vongola VII, was the inventor of the original Dying Will Gun. It's unknown what type of style he used, but he only used a single gun compared to Xanxus's two, and he also possessed a much weaker Dying Will Flame to use for his bullets.
* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': [[spoiler: The Military Police's Anti-Human Suppression Squad turn out to be this, using special maneuver gear and dual pistols. They especially dispatch three veteran Survey Corpsmen in an instant, establishing themselves as a serious threat]].
* Panty Anarchy of ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' has traits of ''all four types''. To be clear, she has the ImprobableAimingSkills of the Trick Shot, the explosive firepower of the Vaporizer, the preference of pistols and SuperSpeed of the Woo, and the quick reaction time and ability to ShootTheBullet of the Quick Draw.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Franchise/{{Batman}} foe ComicBook/{{Deadshot}} is a villainous example of Trick Shot. In ''ComicBook/SecretSix'', he's a combination of Trick Shot and QuickDraw, though he occasionally becomes a Vaporizer when facing someone with ContractualImmortality and DodgeTheBullet skills.
* {{Deadpool}} combines all four styles to go along with his own insane brand of ConfusionFu He is frequently depicted firing [[GunsAkimbo two guns]] while performing all sorts of insane acrobatic feats. He has been shown to pull off shots that should be [[ImprobableAimingSkills statistically impossible]]. [[QuickDraw He can pop a cap in someone before they even know they're dead]]. And being an AxCrazy gun for hire he isn't afraid to pump someone with enough [[MoreDakka bullets and explosives]] to [[UpToEleven hold back an entire army]].
* The series ''ComicBook/EastOfWest'' is filed with all types of gunslingers, which is to be expected from a comic book series that draws a heavy amount of inspiration from the Western genre. Just about every major character is expected to be some sort of master gunmen, but the two most notable ones are The Ranger and The Horseman of Death. Both of whom posses superhuman levels of marksmanship, making Trick Shot experts.
* Grifter of the ''Comicbook/{{WildCATS}}'' is always depicted wielding [[GunsAkimbo two guns]] at once in just about every appearance he's made.
* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' is a solid Trick Shot thanks to his years of practice. And as a nod to his SpaceWestern motif he also shows skill as a Quick Draw expert.
* Agent Graves and The Minutemen from ''ComicBook/OneHundredBullets''. Special mention goes to Minuteman Willie Tymes, whose skills as the Trick shot earned him the nickname "My first shot is my last"
* Kidd Twist from Joss Whedon's run of the ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' is a villainous example of a Trick Shot. He wields a pair of Magical Revolvers that allow him to hit any target he lays his eyes on and will never miss. This includes being able to fire and have his bullet ''curve through obstacles'' and hit his target with a clean shot.
* The Saint of Killers from ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' is a Trick Shot (no matter how he shots, he will kill), Vaporizer (infinite bullets) and QuickDraw (apparently he doesn't even draw, he is instantly pointing at the poor guy who encounters him).
-->'''FBI Agent''': So he drew on you and started shooting.
-->'''Sheriff Root''': Ain't what I said. I said there was a blur and then shooting. I didn't see no draw.
** Tulip O'Hare has also shown considerable skill as a Trick Shot in the few occasions we've have seen her wield a gun.
* Described as equal parts scarecrow and zombie gunslinger, the Gunwitch is a silent undead golem with unerring marksmanship from ''{{Nocturnals}}''. A Trick Shot with strong elements of The Woo and QuickDraw.
* Being a UsefulNotes/VietnamWar veteran, ThePunisher mainly uses Trick Shot (rifles) or Vaporizer ([[MoreDakka machine guns and explosive launchers]]), but occasionally utilizes The Woo ([[GunsAkimbo twin pistols]]) and even QuickDraw (quickdraw with one pistol).
* Tommy Monaghan the titular protagonist from ''ComicBook/{{Hitman}}'' is a combination of the Woo, Trick Shot and has shown shades of the Quick Draw.
* The protagonists in ''ComicBook/SinCity'' all use guns. Hartigan is a QuickDraw since he usually draws and fires a single shot without having to move too much (he is pushing sixty with a bum-ticker, afterall). Dwight is The Woo. He usually has GunsAkimbo and does a lot of fancy footwork to avoid getting shot. Wallace is a Trick Shot, as evidenced by the fact that most of his shots are impossible to perform. At the end of his story, he shoots an entire warehouse filled with assassins before any of them manage to fire off a single round. Marv [[CombatPragmatist rarely uses a gun]] even though his is the most famous due to [[ICallHerVera its name]]. From what we see, he's more of a quickdraw.
* Being an amalgamation of every western gunslinger in fiction, ComicBook/JonahHex is naturally a professional in the Trick Shot and the Woo. And is the undisputed king of the Quick Draw. For example he is the ''only'' person in the DC Universe who has been able to outdraw ''Batman'' in a duel.
* Jules from ''ComicBook/BazookaJules'' is an extremely good shot with any type of gun, big or small, despite not having any combat experience. It's all thanks to a [[TheSymbiote micro-robotic weapon that fused with her body]] called TheSymbiote. It can provide her with any type of gun she needs when she's in danger and it also assists with her aim.
* ComicBook/LuckyLuke is a AffectionateParody of the classic western cowboy who takes the Trick Shot and the Quick Draw to [[UpToEleven illogical extremes]]. The phrase "faster than his own shadow", should give you an idea of the kind of gunplay antics he usually gets up to.
* ComicBook/{{Spawn}} is ''the'' quintessential example of a Vaporizer. It makes sense seeing as how he is the poster child for the era in which it was commonplace for [[NinetiesAntiHero superheroes]] to be drawn wielding [[{{BFG}} comically oversized weapons]].
* Wesley Gibson from ''ComicBook/{{Wanted}}'' is the undisputed ''god'' of all four styles. He demonstrates his Trick Shot skills by shooting the wings off a fly and always landing perfect headshots without even ''looking'' at his victim. Aswell as always being depicted firing away with a gun in each hand while performing all sorts of acrobatics. And he later displays his Vaporizer skills by laying waste to his enemies with a Gatling gun. Justified in that his marksmanship abilities are actually a genetic ability that he inherited from his father, who was known as the greatest supervillain who ever lived.
* Plenty of characters from the ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'' use guns but its Andrea's skills as the Trick Shoot that stand out. As she is always seen landing perfect headshots. Made even more impressive by the fact that she never even handled a gun before the zombie apocalypse
* Creator/DCComics GoldenAge character Vigilante is one if the earliest examples of this trope in comics. True to his roots as a classic gunslinger, he is naturally a professional Trick Shot and Quick Draw expert.
* The ComicBook/XMen have several of these among there ranks.
** ComicBook/{{Cable}} and Bishop are both perfect examples of the Vaporizer. Not only that but they are routinely depicted firing guns that are even [[{{BFG}} larger than they are!]] And considering the large stature of both men, ''that is saying something''
** Longshot and Domino both use their mutant power to subconsciously alter probability in their favor, so if there's a trillion-to-one chance of them landing a perfect shot, you can bet that they ''will make that shot.''
** And lastly we have Fantomex who specializes in [[GunFu the Woo]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Rattlesnake Jake in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' is a combination of type B and D, and Rango claims to be a type A, and on one occasion, is one due to [[AccidentalAimingSkills dumb luck]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The Mariachi from ''Film/{{Desperado}}'' is a quintessential Woo with undertones of Trick Shot. This departs from the "AccidentalHero" played straight in ''Film/ElMariachi'', who killed his adversaries almost unintentionally. Common to expanding characters in this trope, {{flanderization}} overtakes this character and others in ''Film/OnceUponATimeInMexico''.
%%* ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'' and its GunKata.
* All seven of the ''[[Film/TheMagnificentSeven1960 The Magnificent Seven]]'' are expert gunsligers recruited by Chris to defend a small Mexican town from bandits. Britt is unquestionably stated to be the best QuickDraw alive with both gun and knife and proves it, though [[spoiler:it's not enough to keep him from being killed in the climactic firefight]].
* Smith from ''Film/ShootEmUp'' combines Trick Shot and The Woo in such an over-the-top fashion you can't help but laugh at the ludicrous amounts of carnage he dishes out.
* Tequila Yuen from the John Woo movie ''Film/HardBoiled'', being a HeroicBloodshed hero, is classic Woo, with elements of Trick Shot with the trick he pulls with the primer and [[spoiler:[[MoeGreeneSpecial how he finishes off Johnny Wong in the finale]]]]. His arsenal gets expanded in the {{Sequel}} game, ''Stranglehold'' (see below under VideoGames).
* John ''Franchise/{{Rambo}}'' is the prime example of Vaporizer.
* In the movie, at least, of ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', Tom Sawyer is a solid example of Vaporizer, but Quatermain is a far superior example of Trick Shot.
* Franchise/{{Robocop}}, although before his [[WeCanRebuildHim cyborgification]] he was a fairly poor shot who [[GunTwirling twirled his pistol]] to impress his son. Afterwards though, he gained ImprobableAimingSkills and a HandCannon, as well as being ImmuneToBullets. And continued to twirl his pistol.
* [[Film/TheManWhoShotLibertyValance Liberty Valance]] is a QuickDraw, which is why he is able to terrorize the territory.
%%* Comrade Sukhov, the most famous gunslinger of Soviet fiction, from the movie ''Film/WhiteSunOfTheDesert''.
* The Man With No Name, from Creator/SergioLeone's Film/DollarsTrilogy is a QuickDraw and Trick Shot, often being the first and the last to fire in most given situations.
* Also the ''Film/HighPlainsDrifter'', ''Film/TheOutlawJoseyWales'', the ''Film/PaleRider'' -- there may be a Creator/ClintEastwood Western character who isn't a QuickDraw and Trick Shot, but none come to mind.
* The Titular Character in ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' qualifies as a QuickDraw with hints of Vaporizer during the bounty hunting montage.
* In ''Film/{{Maverick}}'', the eponymous characters reveals himself to be a QuickDraw, but is not an actual gunfighter, preferring to bluff his way out of conflicts. This is in contrast to the [[Series/{{Maverick}} original tv series]], in which both the Maverick brothers are said to be incredibly ''slow'' on the draw. Bart once claimed that Bret could outdraw him any day of the week, and that Bret's nickname was "The Second Slowest Gun in the West".
* Jack Sparrow in ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' is a Trick Shot. [[TheMusketeer Most of the fighting he does is melee,]] but when he takes up a gun it's always to do a single shot which ''needs'' to count. To wit, he fires a gun once per film in each of the first three films [[note]]Shooting Barbossa just as Will breaks the curse in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl first]], shooting an powder barrel in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest second]], shooting Davy jones' chest out of his hands in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd third]][[/note]].
* Jimmy Ringo in ''Film/TheGunfighter'' is a QuickDraw, with the reputation of being the FastestGunInTheWest.
* Lola from ''Film/{{Transporter 2}}'' [[GunsAkimbo dual wields]] [[MoreDakka machine pistols]].
%%* Alice in the ''Film/ResidentEvil'' movies.
* Sharon Stone's character Ellen in ''Film/TheQuickAndTheDead''. The entire movie centres around a quick draw competition, so the entire cast is filled with gunslinger. While most are Quick Draws, Cort and Ace are also Trick Shots.
* Creator/HelenMirren in ''Film/{{Red}}'' with a [[{{BFG}} 50 Cal. Machine Gun]] shows that this trope isn't exclusive to younger {{Action Girl}}s.
%%* ''Film/{{Collateral}}'': Vincent is a QuickDraw. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=H8-P8sJNHk0#t=167s It's even mentioned by one of the actors in the documentary at 3:00.]]
* In ''Film/TheFastestGunAlive,'' ''Glenn Ford'' plays a store clerk who gets tired of the overblown stories of the townspeople and shows them how fast he is, shooting two silver dollars in the air. Unfortunately, this draws the attention of an outlaw who will start killing people if Ford does not face him. The truth is that Ford is the son of a famous sheriff who taught him to shoot, but he never worked up the courage to face anyone. He changed his name and hid from his past. In the end Ford has to prove himself.
* Roycephus Pulsipher of the ''Film/{{RIPD}}'' is able to shoot a two headed foe with both hands while both are jumping through the air.
* Agent Zero from ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''. Pistols, rifles, anything!
* Gold Rush era Australia had its own gunfighters, known as Bushrangers, with names like Captain Starlight, Bold Jack Donahue, Captain Moonlight, Black John Caesar, and Film/CaptainThunderbolt. As {{Film/Ned Kelly}}, Mick Jagger dual wields Colt revolvers, Film/TheOutlawMichaelHowe favors flintlock pistols, and as Film/MadDogMorgan, Dennis Hopper uses a pair of shotguns. Williamson, the {{badass longcoat}} of Kiwi film ''{{Film/Utu}}'' also fits this trope, and carries a four barreled shotgun.
* Both Doc Holiday and Johnny Ringo of the Film ''Film/{{Tombstone}}'' are quick draws with a bit of woo thrown in. Of course, "There can be only one."
* Parodied through exaggeration with [[Creator/GeneWilder the Waco Kid]] in ''Film/BlazingSaddles'', who, at one point, [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands blasts the guns out of like seven people's hands in three seconds]].
* Jason [=McCullough=] from ''Film/SupportYourLocalSheriff'' is both a QuickDraw and [[ImprobableAimingSkills The Trick Shot]] (shot a bullet through the hole in a washer). He also realizes that getting a reputation as such is a good way to get killed.
* ''Film/BringMeTheHeadOfTheMachineGunWoman'': The Machine Gun Woman is a combination of The Vaporizer and The Woo: able to lay down MoreDakka with her machine guns, or dance her way through a firefight without receiving a scratch.
* ''Film/LastManStanding1996'': Bruce Willis' hero is a pure Vaporizer that is a sort of a [[FilmNoir noir]] deconstruction of classic Quick Draw gunslingers. His style reflects the supposed changes in the times — fabled revolvers replaced by generic, mass-produced automatics, one-on-one duels by inglorious ambushes and indiscriminate slaughters, and legendary gunslinger finesse and honor by sweaty, chaotic shootouts, rather awkward (which distances him from the Woo) and taking a bloody toll on the hero — so long as the title phrase rings true.
* In ''Film/Ebenezer1998'', a setting update of ''A Christmas Carol'' to the Canadian frontier, Ebenezer Scrooge is an expert marksman and quick-draw. His partner Marlowe was also this in life, to the point that when Scrooge shoots at him he draws on him, forgetting he's a ghost and nothing would happen.

[[folder:Fan Works]]

* Charlotte "Charlie" Duncan of ''Fanfic/SapphireEleanorRoseSuzetteDeMontVsCanon'' is never seen without her BigFuckingGun.
* In ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestria'', most of Little Pip's party counts.
** Calamity is a solid Trick Shot, pulling off kill shots while performing complex aerial maneuvers, being the team's dedicated sniper with the BFG ''Spitfire's Thunder'', and being skilled in magical energy weapons.
** Steelhooves is The Vaporizer taken UpToEleven! His go-to weapons are a missile launcher and GRENADE MACHINEGUN! While his raw firepower is a great asset to his friends, it's also frequently an inconvenience as he leaves little to scavenge from.
** Little Pip herself is something of a Woo. Her telekinesis allows her to wield multiple weapons at once (not always guns even), makes frequent use of S.A.T.S to invoke BulletTime, and her weapon of choice is a scoped revolver.
* In ''Fanfic/PokeWars'', Dawn is mostly a Trick Shot but has some Woo tendencies. Her supernatural accuracy places her in the Trick Shot category but her penchant for using dual pistols at close range places her in The Woo category.
* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' the Winter Soldier falls into Trick Shot and QuickDraw with a touch of The Woo - he's capable of moving fast enough to turn and shoot a master assassin who has snuck up behind him and is holding a gun to his head before the other man can even shoot. The Trick Shot is also sort of inevitable since his grandson is [[spoiler: Clint Barton]].
* ''FanFic/BadFutureCrusaders'': Apple Bloom is mostly a QuickDraw. Having grown up in a country more technologically advanced than Equestria (and fought in a civil war), she is very proficient with her hoofgun.

* ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'': The Whistler family. All of them. It is mentioned at one point, that their children are given toy guns as toddlers, and real guns at eight years. Jerin's twelve year old sister shoots some bandits, which doesn't surprise him much when he hears about it.
* [[KnightErrant Roland Deschain of Gilead]], the Last Gunslinger of Stephen King's ''magnum opus'', ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series. As it is fairly realistic in terms of gunplay, Roland only exhibits types Trick Shot and QuickDraw. He seldom has enough ammunition to be a Vaporizer type (and would probably consider it to be obscenely wasteful), and is only The Woo insofar as dual wielding (albeit briefly), at one point gunning down 58 people attacking him as a mob. Considering he's using single action revolvers, and can only dual wield by thumbing the hammers, doing it at all is quite impressive. Not to mention the only reason he stops DualWielding is because [[spoiler: he loses two fingers off his right hand, and is rendered unable to hold a gun in that hand.]] Later, more gunslingers are added to Roland's ''[[TrueCompanions ka-tet]]'':
** [[HotBlooded Eddie Dean,]] TheLancer.
** Eddie's eventual wife, Susannah Dean. Extra points for the fact that she has [[HandicappedBadass no legs]].
* ''Literature/TheLastOfTheMohicans''. Hawkeye ([[SupportingLeader Natty Bumppo]]) is America's first Gunslinger in literature, with ImprobableAimingSkills. On film, he's capable of DualWielding -- [[GunsAkimbo frontier long rifles]]! And reloading a musket ''on the run''. He can also pick off a running man at 200 yards with a muzzle-loader, and in ''Literature/TheLeatherstockingTales'' he does frontier [[WilliamTelling William Tell]] tricks, including firing a musket-ball ''into'' another musket-ball which his compatriots had used to drive a nail into a post at 50 yards.
* ''Literature/TheExecutioner''. Mack Bolan has shown Trick Shot, Vaporizer, and even The Woo tendencies at time, although not to a superhuman extent, as have his homages like ThePunisher.
* Matthew Stark in ''Literature/CloudOfSparrows'' is a somewhat more historically accurate version than usual. He's a dirty, coarse, violent man who nevertheless is good at heart. He's also able to out-reflex {{ninja}}s.
* ''{{Shane}}'' of course.
* From Creator/DavidGemmell's ''Literature/StonesOfPower'' series, Jon Shannow, the Jerusalem Man.
* In ''Literature/WarOfTheDreaming'', Pendrake (an expy/homage of Radio/TheShadow) is a Trick Shot and The Woo.
* In ''Literature/CountToTheEschaton'', Menelaus is a Trick Shot and Vaporizer, who uses a smartgun which he [[AwesomenessByAnalysis has programmed to deliver its payload more efficiently]]. Somewhat hilariously, Menelaus' gunslinging skills make him a valued [[DuelToTheDeath "junior partner"]] for his [[TrialByCombat law firmemployers...]]
* Lewis Wetzel from Zane Grey's ''Betty Zane'' is similar to the ''Literature/LastOfTheMohicans'' example: a trick shot who can drive nails with bullets.
%%* Every Literature/TimeScout more or less by definition. Kit, Malcolm, Margo, and Ann all [[ShowDontTell demonstrate this]].
* Holly Short and Vinyaya in ''Literature/ArtemisFowl''. The latter requested for elecftric runs during a goblin rebellion despite not having to fight due to her desk job position but the same desk job position gives her a lot of power. She didn't miss.
* Trigger of the ''Literature/SeekersOfTruth''. She carries a rifle that [[SwissArmyWeapon can fire any ammunition grenade-sized or smaller]].
* [[AcePilot Medea Bentacore]] in the ''{{Literature/Eisenhorn}}'' novels keeps [[AncestralWeapon her father's Glavian needle pistol]] on hand.
** Kara Swole in the ''Literature/{{Ravenor}}'' books.
* Back in the early days of the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Han Solo had several run-ins with a professional gunman named Gallandro, a mercenary renowned for being the fastest gun in the galaxy. [[FamedInStory Exploits attributed to him]] include hunting down a crime family, single handedly hijacking a star-liner and forcing the Assassin's Guild to default on a contract (by hunting down and killing half of their Elite Guard).
* In ''Literature/ChasmCity'', it was said of the protagonist that he could take out specific brain functions with a shot, making him a Trick Shot. He laments to another character that he was never actually ''that'' good, but says he did come close.
* [[ActionGirl Lt. Karrin Murphy]] of the ''[[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Dresden Files]]'' is possibly this trope's Patron Saint. (Given the series, that could be literal -- especially since she's almost certainly at the top of the very short list of candidates [[spoiler: to become a new Knight of the Cross]].) She wades into battlefields and underground lairs of the ''things'' that go bump in the dark, armed with only a gun, a badge, and five feet of BadassAdorable. Despite that, she's covered Harry's back with surprising success, doubly so for a {{muggle}}. She even gets her own chance at narrating in ''Aftermath''.
** Supernaturals (e.g. Thomas and Lara Raith. Harry complains that he doesn't even practice, yet nails a target from over a hundred feet away with a pistol. On a boat. In Lake Michigan. At night) play this trope awfully straight, hitting Trick Shot, The Woo, and QuickDraw. Justified - they do have supernatural powers and are capable of absurd feats like grazing skin layers off with a shot, ignoring recoil, and blurring speed. Fortunately, magic is faster that bullets.
** The more forward-thinking (younger) among the Wardens and Knights of the Cross are known to carry heavy pistols and ''assault rifles'', and use them proficiently.
*** To the point where Harry draws his revolver in ''Dead Beat'' and suggests shooting Cowl in the back. Ramirez, young Warden poster boy and owner of a Desert Eagle and multiple grenades says this is why the young wizards like the way he thinks.
* Chess Pargeter of Gemma Files's [[Literature/TheHexslingerSeries Hexslinger Series]] hits Trick Shot and QuickDraw above, both killing a man with an over-the-shoulder shot without even looking and later shooting a would-be avenger twice (while ''sitting down'') before the young challenger can even draw his pistol. (He does, however, have an advantage: [[spoiler: unknown to him, he's a latent and partially-manifested "hex", a ridiculously powerful natural magician, and has been unconsciously channelling his powers into his gunplay]].)
* ''Literature/TheExilesViolin'': Jacquie is a terrific shot but Jean de Roix is so good [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname he has this as a nickname.]]
* ''Literature/TheWorstShotsInTheWest'' has Tim and Tom, two old, near blind gunslingers, with really high AccidentalAimingSkills.
* Agents of the Gun in ''Literature/TheHalfMadeWorld'' are a darker take on the trope; their superhuman gunslinging skills are provided as part of their DealWithTheDevil with the [[EvilWeapon demonic guns]] they carry, and they're compelled to carry out the will of their weapons until their inevitable violent death. On the plus side, they're basically the celebrities of the half-made West, and their exploits are remembered in the form of ballads and folk tales.
* Matt Hollis from the ''Literature/{{Valducan}}'' series UrbanFantasy published by Creator/RagnarokPublications is one of these. This is, in part, due to his ImpossiblyCoolWeapon, the revolver Damoren.
* ''Literature/TheUndertaker'' features Barnaby Gold; an undertaker turned gunslinger. Gold is primarily a quick draw, although he wears his left hand gun on a swivel on his belt, which allows him to turn and fire it from under his long black coat.
* One of the two title characters of the ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'' books is Waxillium 'Wax' Ladrian, is a MageMarksman with the ability to telekinetically push metal away from himself. In a pinch, he can kill you with a bullet without even bothering to load it into a gun, in fact. He mostly uses his ability to approximate flight or deflect incoming rounds, but occasionally uses it to increase the effective muzzle velocity of the bullets he fires. He is known for his precision shots while dual-wielding revolvers, and has managed to [[spoiler: land a headshot on someone with a hostage by firing a bullet out of a bubble of sped-up time, then having his friend drop the bubble at the exact instant he fired a second round with a heavy steelpush behind it to deflect the first one to right where it needed to go.]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/CriminalMinds'' has Aaron Hotchner, Elle Greenaway, Emily Prentiss, and Jennifer "JJ" Jareau, all of whom are incidentally very good shots (Emily is probably the worst shot out of all of them, but that's not really saying much, since the only time she's ever really *missed* was about thirty seconds after getting a concussion in a car crash). Hotchner is notable for wearing not only a pistol on the belt, but in his boot while in the field. JJ once even killed an [=UnSub=] with a perfect headshot through a glass-paned FBI door. Technical Analyst Penelope Garcia has only held a gun once.
* Wesley's forte in ''Series/{{Angel}}'', though it takes a few seasons (and CharacterDevelopment) for it to kick in. While he is primarily GunsAkimbo, he also has ''insane'' ImprobableAimingSkills. Gunn and Fred occasionally use guns as well, but without Wesley's showy movies.
** Lampshaded in "Lineage". We cut from slo-mo Wesley firing two pistols in mid-air to Fred, in real time, sighing, "Yes, thank you, Wesley, I'd love a gun."
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'':
** Mal is a shining example of QuickDraw, the stuff of legends. The fact that he hits anything at all is amazing, but at one point he [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands shoots the Operative's gun out of his hand.]] From a ''quick draw''. And the Operative's gun was '''already drawn.''' It might as well be a CharlesAtlasSuperpower.
** And in the episode "War Stories", River pulls off a CrowningMomentOfAwesome of the Trick Shot variety.
** Zoe might be the character known for accuracy, but Jayne seems to be even better at it than she is when he's trying. Most notably, he's the only member of the crew to ever use a sniper rifle: in the first episode, where he shoots the hat off his target.
* Series/MacGyver1985's arch-nemesis Murdoc appears a stereotypical black clad gunslinger (seemingly a QuickDraw) in the AllJustADream CowboyEpisode "Serenity".
* ''Series/RedDwarf'': In the episode ''Gunmen Of The Apocalypse'', the Dwarfers enter a "total immersion videogame" (basically, present-day VR cranked up to 11) version of Kryten's mindscape while he works on forming an antivirus program for the problems currently plaguing Starbug. In order to even the odds against whatever might await them, they hack in superpowered avatars from a Western-based TIV. The avatar Cat chooses is a Mexican gunslinger nicknamed ''The Riviera Kid'', a character capable of shooting bullets out of the air mid-flight... and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnLDt0RFOjU this.]] And yes, the brief dance and Spanish guitar riff at the utterance of his name ''is'' mandatory.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'''s Aeryn Sun. Especially impressive when compared to the [[ActionSurvivor male lead]], who attempts to fire a gun only to have to throw it away as it explodes. Even after [[TookALevelInBadass taking a few levels in badass]], said male lead is nowhere near Aeryn's level when it comes to gunplay (Aeryn wouldn't trust him around her {{BFG}} until things got ''really'' desperate—to his credit, during that instance, he ''finally'' handled the thing competently).
* Mossad liaison Ziva David from ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. Always lethally skilled with firearms (and everything else up to and including Kleenex and rubber bands), in an episode she exhibited the ability to [[GunsAkimbo dual wield]] a semiautomatic pistol and a revolver (at 90-degree angles to each other, no less) in a shootout to protect a Federal witness in their hideout hotel. Result: two dead {{Mooks}}, dead via simultanious PrettyLittleHeadshots, and Ziva, not so much as scratched, calmly reholstering as [=McGee=] and the terrified witness crawl out of the hotel bathroom.
%%* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' has one for each season. Rarely two gunslingers. Usually, the rider has a weapon that can change into a gun.
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderKuuga Kuuga's Pegasus Form]].
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderAgito G3]].
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Zolda]]. [[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight And Western counterpart Torque]].

%%** [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Garren]].
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderHibiki Ibuki]].
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto Drake, Kabuto has a gun that can also change into either a kunai or an axe]].

%%** [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Kiva's Bassha Form, and to an extent, Ixa]].
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Diend. Decade has his Ridebooker.]]
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Double's Trigger Form. Also Skull.]]
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Birth]].
%%** [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Fourze's Fire States]].
* ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue'' almost always resort to using their guns. In fact, they have more gunplay than the other teams. Justified due to the fact that it was a military operation, not some wizard, granting the rangers these powers.
* Kid Curry from ''Series/AliasSmithAndJones'' shot the gun from another gunfighter's holster before the man could draw; in the pilot, he tossed a bullet into the air and then hit it by firing another. Therefore, both Trick Shot and QuickDraw apply to him.
* Radio/TheLoneRanger tended to shoot guns out of bandits' hands with either hand.
* In ''Series/TheAdventuresOfBriscoCountyJr'', Brisco is able to do any kind of trick shots and QuickDraw, demonstrating one and/or the other basically in every episode.
* Wrangler Jane of ''Series/FTroop'', known to be the best shot at Fort Courage, which makes her closest to Trick Shot.
%%* [[Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles Sarah Connor]] definitely qualifies for this.
%%** As does [[RobotGirl Cameron]].
* Kara "Starbuck" Thrace of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' is a pilot who is described in canon as the best shot in the Fleet, in or out of a Viper cockpit. She gets to show off plenty of both skills.
* The only thing sexier than Samantha Carter on ''Series/StargateSG1''? Samantha Carter with a P90. Vala's pretty cool too, though she prefers zats and pistols.
%%* Scully from ''Series/TheXFiles''.
%%* Mac from ''Series/{{JAG}}''. SemperFi!
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has River Song, who likes energy handguns, and once used them to threaten the Roman Army into helping her. Liz 10 also carries two Steampunk laser pistols.
** The Doctor's full-time companions generally avoid guns, but some of them end up here anyway. Sarah-Jane demonstrates surprisingly good marksmanship for a reporter in ''Pyramids of Mars'', Ace takes out a Dalek with a rocket launcher (she aims for the eyepiece), and both Rose and Martha get in on this in the revival.
** Then Eleven faces a character in Series 7 [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin literally called the Gunslinger]]. Except he's a [[RuleOfCool cyborg]].
* ''Series/CSIMiami'''s Calleigh Duquesne, resident ballistics expert.
-->'''Horatio''': What do you get when you mix a six foot man with a three foot gun?
-->'''Calleigh''': Hot flashes. But that's just me.
* ''Series/{{Justified}}'' has both Raylan, as a Quick Draw (befitting his CowboyCop status) and Tim, as a former Ranger sniper with ImprobableAimingSkills.
** In the final season Markham brings in PsychoForHire Boon who is an excellent shot and just as fast as Raylan. Boon ends up challenging Raylan to a Western-style shootout [[spoiler: and is a fraction of a second slower than Raylan. Boon ends up with a bullet in the heart and Raylan ends up knocked down after Boon's shot grazes his head.]]
* On ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'', have you ever noticed that when the build team is testing a gun myth, Kari Byron tends to bring the [[SmallGirlBigGun biggest weapon]] to the party? Kari said in a behind-the-scenes interview once that, being a good Californian, she was very anti-gun before working with Mythbusters, and after their second or third gun myths special, she found that she had turned into a gun nerd along the way. She now privately owns several firearms of her own and never seems to be far away when they're testing gun myths on the show.
* ''Guinan'' of all beings in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' is one. She's a better Trick Shot than Worf on the phaser range, and when a BarBrawl breaks out she's the first to pull out a gun almost as big as she is.
** In "A Fistful of Datas", a holodeck malfunction gives a whole host of Western characters the strength, speed and skill of Data, making them all lightning Quick Draws.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Kira Nerys joined the [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized Bajoran Resistance]] at ''twelve''. For the love of God, if you hope to survive an encounter with her, ''do '''not''''' let the woman get her hands on a phaser!!! Otherwise you'll be even ''more'' screwed [[WaifFu than you]] [[PayEvilUntoEvil already are]].
* The BigBad's henchgirl from ''DerClown ? Payday'' seems to always carry a machine gun with her. And yes, she can shoot it better than any SWAT member.
** Subverted by the heroine who tries and first fails to shoot the same type of gun. She even asks for a manual after she picked it up.
* Ashley of ''Series/{{Sanctuary}}''. Her entire job is pretty much shooting things.
* [=Lucas McCain=], the title character of ''Series/TheRifleman'', is a crack shot with a lever-action rifle.
%%* Booth on ''Series/{{Bones}}.''
* ''Series/SirArthurConanDoylesTheLostWorld'': Roxton is the best with guns, but Malone and Marguerite are no slouches. Only Veronica doesn't use guns, but she doesn't need them.
* Paladin on ''Series/HaveGunWillTravel'' is a Quick Draw. At one point, he goes toe to toe with a hired gunman with a 12-man tally; Paladin is so much faster that the hired gun draws first, yet dies without firing a shot.

* A man actually named The Gunslinger was a member of Music/TheProtomen.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* In ''ComicStrip/RickOShay'', gunslinger Hipshot Percussion is a major supporting character. Several storylines feature his reputation as one of the best shots in the West.

* Heavily featured in ''Pinball/CactusCanyon'', with multiple game modes -- "Quick Draw", "Gun Fight", and "Showdown Multiball" -- devoted to this trope.

* ''Radio/TheLoneRanger'' is a Trick Shot and QuickDraw. He is a TechnicalPacifist who specializes in BlastingItOutOfTheirHands.

[[folder: Roleplay]]
* Clint Wayne and Angel Eyes in ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'' are a duo of gunslingers. The former is shown to be a QuickDraw , while the latter is another... with a ''rifle''. Atton Rand openly admitted that Creator/ClintEastwood and Creator/LeeVanCleef's performances in Creator/SergioLeone's Spaghetti Westerns were a major influence for both.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** Quite popular in the ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'' setting. Among the House gangs, if you're not a Gunslinger, you're probably a YoungGun. You have rifle-wielding snipers for Trick Shot, heavies who carry one of a variety of {{BFG}}S, or a melee fighter who [[GunsAkimbo dual-wields pistols]] or a pistol and close combat weapon.
** The notorius Cypher is well-known for wielding a pair of exquisitely crafted pistols (not similar; one is a bolt pistol, the other is plasma). Not to mention outdrawing and killing one of Abaddon's Terminator bodyguards so fast that even Abaddon nearly missed it. It's reflected on the tabletop too - he was the only character in the game that could fire both pistols twice in one turn. In his current rules, he has the highest Ballistic Skill in the game.
** Sisters of Battle (Witch Hunters) give us the Seraphim, power armoured ladies with jetpacks who dual-wield automatic microgrenade launcher pistols. Or, alternately, dual wield flamer pistols, or, if you really want to splash out, microwave pistols that can turn a super-heavy tank into slag. Their gun fu is so awesome that everyone around them feels just a little bit braver for having them there.
** Most armies have got some characters specializing in gunfire. Being the TropeNamer for MoreDakka, many qualify as The Vaporizer:
*** Marneus Calgar, possibly, with submachinegun microgrenade launches strapped to his forearms. Definitely a Vaporizer.
*** Maugan Ra is a Vaporizer, carrying by himself a heavy machine gun that normal Eldar have to strap to an anti-gravity platform to lug around and is easily twice as effective as Shadowsun or Calgar when facing enemy infantry.
*** Commander Shadowsun also qualifies as a Vaporizer, assisted by powered armor, what with carrying two anti-tank weapons.
*** Dark Eldar tend towards the choppy end of the scale, but their Haemonculi can carry a device called a Hexrifle: a sniper rifle that [[TakenForGranite turns the target into a statue]].
*** The Imperial Guard have more than most due to their shooty nature, but special mention must go to QuickDraw Guardsman Marbo and his sniper pistol, and Vaporizer Gunnery Sergeant Harker, who carries a heavy bolter (a weapon normally carried by two men and fired from a tripod) around.
*** The Vindicare Assassin is a classic Trick Shot, as he is at the moment the only model on the table that can single out a specific model in an enemy unit with a gun and blast a hole in his head, and carries special ammunition that lets him do things like make tanks explode with a sniper rifle. In ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'', an infiltrated Vindicare Assassin is possibly the best secondary commander unit in the game.
* It would be remiss not to mention 'Slick' Devlan of ''TabletopGame/{{Inquisitor}}''.
** Don't forget the characters spiritual successors from ''TabletopGame/DarkHeresy'', the class of Scum hailing from Gunmetal City on Scintilla.
* Anyone with Gun Schticks [=and/or=] a high enough Guns skill in ''TabletopGame/FengShui'' is a Gunslinger in terms of this trope. Maverick Cops, Killers, and Ex-Special Forces guys are especially exemplary of the trope, but Spies, Gamblers, Magic Cops, Masked Avengers, Monster Hunters, Cyborgs and even Medics can qualify as well, along with any other archetype who spends XP on Gun Schticks and the Guns skill. What type your gunslinger character generally is depends on what Gun Schticks you give your character. Trick Shots prefer Eagle Eye, [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands Shoot Weapon]], Sabotage Shot and other schticks that allow them to perform crazy feats of accuracy. Vaporizers generally go for Carnival of Carnage and 10,000 Bullets to maximize the mook slaughter, along with Cover Fire, Bullet Storm, [[BottomlessMagazines Lightning Reload]], Who Wants Some, and a good automatic weapon capable of MoreDakka. Woos can use pretty much any schtick out of the books, though Both Guns Blazing, Carnival of Carnage, Slow Mo Vengeance and others are primarily used by them. Quick Draws, as per the name, generally buy up lots of Fast Draw in order to act ahead of everyone else in a given sequence.
* One of the more common character types in ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}''. Some hucksters (called 'hexslingers') combine magic with gunplay to give them an extra edge.
* The aptly named advantage "Gunslinger" in ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' makes you into a type Trick Shot, The Woo, or QuickDraw.
* There's a Gunslinger [=O.C.C.=], in the ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' megaverse. Specifically, they can be any combination of Trick Shot, The Woo, or QuickDraw. In-game fluff describes them as assassins, hitmen, and mercenaries who specialize in close combat and dual-wielding pisols. They also have a psychic equivalent, the Psi-Slinger.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' has ''[[GunKata entire martial arts styles]]'' centered around dual-wielding badassery. Well, okay, you're really wielding [[FantasyGunControl pocket flamethrowers]], but still...
** ''Shards of the Exalted Dream'' gives us the Solar Firearms tree, which has stuff for ''all four'' types (as does its Abyssal mirror). What's especially hilarious is that with sufficient strength, you can use the GunsAkimbo Charms, Sun-Dog Gunslinger Stance (Solar) and Murder of Crows Posture (Abyssal), while dual-wielding [[{{BFG}} godcannons]], which are guns ''the size of men''.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has the Gunslinger class, which uses flintlock pistols and muskets (in the default setting; there ''are'' rules for more advanced firearms like revolvers and shotguns). Gunslinger characters have a resource called Grit which is used for pulling off crazy gunslinging stunts and is replenished with daring deeds, as the Gunslinger is not just a class about shooting things but a class about being really ballsy while you shoot things. There is also the Amateur Gunslinger feat, which gives access to a small Grit pool replenished as for a true Gunslinger, and a single basic Gunslinger stunt (most class variants that add in some gunslinger flavour tends to give it as a bonus feat).
* ''TabletopGame/{{Heroscape}}'' has several according to their bios, but only Deadeye Dan has actual effects that make him this. He's a Trick Shot who has two abilities: one which gives him a half chance to deal one damage (which is deadly to characters with one life and high defence) and the other which gives him a one tenth change of '''instant killing''' '''''anyone'''''.
* The ''TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}'' portion of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' gives us Murlynd, demigod of Magical Technology, and his White Paladins. Murlynd himself is styled after a Wild West sheriff, and he and his clerics and paladins are the only ones who can wield firearms in the setting.
* In TabletopGame/D20Modern, there is an actual advanced class called Gunslinger. Unlike most fiction gunslingers, his abilities are mostly BoringButPractical: Getting untyped bonuses to attack rolls (Trick Shot), increased benefits from [[TakeCover cover]]. He can also shoot more often than other characters (Vaporizer), and is such a good shot that he reduces cover bonuses his enemies gain against him (Trick Shot).
* The ''TabletopGame/IronKingdoms'' gun mage is a gunslinger with magic; a sorcerer who uses his or her specially made rune-engraved firearm (typically pistol/s, but a few can use rifles) as a focus for spellcasting. They can imbue their bullets with spells, allowing them to pull off all sorts of trick shots and effects, from shooting through walls (Trick Shot) to creating a localised lightning storm where the shot hits (Vaporizer). They exist as Cygnaran and Mercenary models in the wargame and as a playable class in the RPG. The most famous signature character gun mage, Allister Caine, is also adept at teleportation magic, making him a capable Woo and QuickDraw as well.
* The term "Swordsman School" is used rather loosely in ''TabletopGame/SeventhSea'' and includes many schools based around weapons other than swords. Most relevant to this trope are the Montaigne Rois et Reines school that specializes in the use of a musket with a fixed bayonet, and the Vendel Rasmussen school, focused on pistols. Rasmussen even has a swordsman knack called "Trick Shot." These being 17th century firearms, both schools emphasize training far beyond the norm, allowing unusual aim, effective range, and reload speed. A master of Rasmussen can reload a pistol in a single action, while a character without the Reload Swordsman Knack would take several entire turns (with 2-5 actions per turn) to do the same.
* The Ortegas of ''TabletopGame/{{Malifaux}}'' are an entire BadassFamily of gunslingers, led by Perdita, who is both a Trick Shot (able to ignore cover and armor) and Fast Draw (able to get in a shot before any other model can get theirs off). Her brother Santiago is a classic Vaporizer whose dual pistols can theoretically get off 16 shots per turn where two is average and four is amazing.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The AmnesiacHero of VideoGame/CaveStory, "Mister Traveler", is a gunslinger of the [[MoreDakka Vaporizer]] variety. He carries a [[HyperspaceArsenal huge variety]] of highly improbable [[EvolvingWeapon evolving guns]] and carries enough ammunition to obliterate a [[TankGoodness super-tank]] supported by various mooks. He has a sword too, but it exclusively fires [[SwordBeam sword beams.]]
* In ''{{VideoGame/Vindictus}}'', Kai's second weapon type is a SchizoTech crossbow/machine gun. He uses elements of all four basic types.
* Samus Aran of ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'', as well as her Zero Suit incarnation.
* Ein alias Phantom from ''VisualNovel/PhantomOfInferno''.
* Inspector Tequila Yuen, of ''Film/HardBoiled'' fame, demonstrates ''three'' styles with his Tequila Bomb attacks in the game-only sequel ''VideoGame/{{Stranglehold}}'':
** The Precision Aim (Trick Shot) is a sniper shot performed with any gun that can take someone out at long ranges with pinpoint accuracy.
** The Barrage attack (Vaporizer) allows you to rock and roll on full auto, tearing scenery and mooks apart.
** The Spin Attack (The Woo) takes every mook in your general vicinity out in true cinematic style, and as an added bonus, you get the [[DisturbedDoves doves flying in slow-mo]] while you're at it.
* ''[[TenThousandBullets 10000 Bullets]]'' is chock-full of these. Expect plenty of GunFu. Somewhat necessary in that you can [[NintendoHard die quite easily even in stage one]].
* [[BadassBeard John Marston]] in ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'', a Trick Shot and a The Woo in that he can shoot a man's hat off or gun out of his hand and also enter bullet-time "Dead Eye" mode for those extra-tricky shots. He is also a master of the QuickDraw and often finds himself using a mounted machine gun, making him qualify for all four.
* The [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Appropriately named]] Gunslinger boss enemies in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' qualify as Trick Shots. How good are their trick shots? These BadassNormal soldiers can [[BlownAcrossTheRoom knock down and set on fire]] the most powerful player-controlled superheroes and supervillains in the game.
** The Dual Pistols powerset features Trick Shot attacks and a couple of Vaporizer attacks such as firing bullets in the sky so they rain down on enemies.
* ''VideoGame/DungeonFighterOnline'' has the gunslinger class that can advance into three Vaporizers: The Launcher, that specializes in heavy weaponry; Mechanic, that builds robots that either explode or shoot things for him/her; Spitfire, that can use special rounds and explosives; and a Woo / QuickDraw, Ranger, that uses melee kicks and and quick shots.
* The ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' series has an example of each. Revolver Ocelot is a Trick Shot, Vulcan Raven is a Vaporizer, and The Boss is a Woo. Snake himself is a Quick Draw, but it almost never comes up.
** The Boss is The Woo ''and'' The Vaporizer. Look at The Patriot: a rifle with the barrel cut short. Size of a pistol, power of the rifle, and infinite ammo. Yes, the infinite ammo part is canon. And yes, she takes full advantage of it. She also takes away your gun, takes it apart, and hands you back the pieces.
* Jr. from ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' plays this trope straight, wielding GunsAkimbo in the Trick Shot style. His special attacks tend to involve ricocheting bullets off coins to the point in one of his moves, he throws more than a dozen coins, fires a single bullet, and the bullet bounces off every coin hitting every enemy.
** Billy in the Spiritual Predecessor ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' is another Gunslinger, mostly Trick Shot style or maybe The Woo depending on playstyle. He is also one of the best healers in the game by virtue of being a priest or training to become one. Notably his last deathblow forgoes the main types he displays and delves straight into The Vaporizer where he unloads every gun he's carrying and even briefly jumps into a FPS-like view while firing his handguns before finishing with his shotgun.
* Ramiro Cruz from the ''VideoGame/TotalOverdose'' video game is The Woo, able to run off the sides of walls, [[BulletTime slow down time]] and do all sorts of [[RuleOfCool cool stunts]].
* Sundown from ''VideoGame/LiveALive'' is a Vaporizer (see his ultimate attack, Hurricane Shot, which fires more bullets than any four revolvers should ever be able to carry). Of course, he's ALSO a Trick Shot (Multi-Counter, which animates as him turning his back to the enemy and shooting through his poncho as a counter to almost any attack, and Pierce Shot, which hits all enemies in a line). In universe, Sundown is also a QuickDraw, as he's described as having "an arm as quick as lightning" (Neo Shot Storm, which can hit up to around six times, all before his opponents can react). Mad Dog, from the same game, is also a Trick Shot, as all of his attacks are essentially trick-shots.
* Dante from ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' blends all four types together, with near-flawless accuracy and OffhandBackhand shots, a crazy rate of fire and a variety of explosive weapons, superhuman agility, and the ability (both in and out of cutscenes) to draw quickly yet still fire accurately. Of course, he has a Style explicitly named Gunslinger that enhances his firearm moveset. Nero aspires to reach the same level of competence, but isn't there yet.
** In DMC3, where the [[StanceSystem Style system]] is introduced, a gunslinger-style Dante has a different specialization for each gun he obtains:
-Ebony and Ivory are Dante's trademark handguns, they allow him to shoot two targets at once, as well, as a couple point-blank moves. The shotgun also allows Dante to move it like nunchuks while shooting everything around him. (The Woo)
-Spiral Sniper Rifle (trick shot) Dante can bounce bullets to hit several targets
-Kalina Ann(The Vaporizer) is a Bazooka that also features homing missiles
** And as of 2015, DMC4: Special Edition makes Lady playable for the first time in the series. As the true owner of the Kalina Ann, her style incorporates a lot [[MoreDakka more explosives; different kinds of missiles and grenades]], but she also uses dual handguns and shotguns with some of the moves Dante uses, in addition to her own [[SpamAttack rapid fire shots]]
* Created by the same person who created ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'', ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' takes all 4 types to truly outlandish degrees. From regular hand guns to shot guns to ROCKET LAUNCHER TONFAS and so many other weapons, Bayonetta is currently one of the most insane examples of the gunslinger in video games so far.
* Vermilion from ''VideoGame/BattleArenaToshinden'' is a Vaporizer, carrying a peacemaker in one hand, and a ''[[ThisIsMyBoomstick shotgun]]'' in the other.
* Reaver from the second ''VideoGame/{{Fable|II}}'' game is Trick Shot and QuickDraw. Makes sense, considering that [[spoiler: not only is he the Hero of Skill,]] but also that [[spoiler: by the time you see his fighting skills in action, he's had hundreds of years to practice his shots.]]
** Your player character itself is a Trick Shot, as maxed skill lets you hit from any distance, and kill with one shot.
*** The Time Control spell lets you move toward the Woo and QuickDraw types by dropping a pack of bandits before they have time to get their guns out.
* ''VideoGame/{{Boktai}}'', anyone? Both Django and his spiritual successor Aaron use Solar Guns, drawing from all three schools. In Aaron's case, the Witch is the Trick Shot, the Ninja is the Woo, and the Bomber, Dragoon, and Knight suit the Vaporizer fine.
* Dr Peace in ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' wields a pair of golden revolvers.
** And Helter Skelter in the trailer and opening has a nice set of guns, too.
*** Then there's his brother, Skelter Helter, who wields a revolver ''[[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon with a revolving set of cylinders]]''.
* All the main characters in the ''VideoGame/WildArms'' series, but ''VideoGame/WildArms3'' gets special mention since everyone in your party is a gunslinger. To Specify:
** In ''VideoGame/WildArms1'' Rudy is a solid Type B. Employing a combination of both the standard MoreDakka approach and variations of WaveMotionGun.
** Since ''all'' of the leads in ''VideoGame/WildArms3'' had [=ARMs=] they ''almost'' got to be class representatives each:
*** Jet is The Vaporizer, equipped with the machine gun - though in-game he could be considered a partial QuickDraw too thanks to having the best speed.
*** Clive is a Trick Shot, no fancy tricks but was the most accurate bar none thanks to his sniper rifle
*** Virginia is a combination of all the classes and her status as something of a JackOfAllStats in-game shows it.
* ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'' has Maria. Her marksmanship works very well with her ability to manipulate matter and energy.
* Carth Onasi in ''Videogame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' and Atton Rand in the sequel both have elements of types Vaporizer and The Woo, stretching into QuickDraw during some cutscenes. Interestingly, Mira in ''Videogame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' is the only female party member in the entire series who specializes in ranged weapons instead of melee weapons. Technically, she can be equipped with other weapons like most party members, [[spoiler:including lightsabers if you turn her into a Jedi]], but she's always most efficient with a blaster or two in hand. Some of their ImprobableAimingSkills can be explained; Mira and Atton are known to be Force Sensitive, adding enhanced intuition and reflexes. Carth's broadly hinted to be the same.
* The Kid in ''VideoGame/{{Bastion}}'' is a combination Vaporizer and QuickDraw with dueling pistols (with a side of The Woo in that he dual wields), being capable of drawing, locking on, and emptying both guns into anything essentially as fast as you can click. One special attack moves into Trick Shot territory. He also gets bonus points for reloading solely by GunTwirling.
** Use of the Scrap Musket can put him squarely into Vaporizer, particularly with the special attack unloading around half a dozen shots in rapid succession. From a single-shot, muzzle-loading, shot-firing ''musket''. There's also the Army Carbine and the Fang Repeater, the latter of which is A and B thanks to a high rate of fire and homing projectiles when appropriately upgraded.
* The main character from ''VideoGame/FalloutTacticsBrotherhoodOfSteel'' could be made into a Vaporizer in turn-based mode. Start with a high agility character who takes a starting trait which lowers the AP cost of shooting, which can later be coupled with a perk that further reduces the cost and another that halves reload time. Since the game's revolvers inexplicably shoot faster than all other pistols, using one you can fire six shots, reload, then get off three more before the other guy even gets to move. And when not using turn-based mode, your character's shooting animation is slightly quicker than normal, making him a QuickDraw. Nifty as enemies flinch and are stun-locked even from small damage, so even a huge mutant soldier can be cut down by one dude with a six-gun.
* Gilder from ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' is a definite Woo. His first S-Move is even called 'Gunslinger'.
* ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' is The Woo. Really, all that was missing from the game's bullet-time antics were the frickin' doves.
** On the occasions the player gets to take control of her, ''Max Payne'''s Mona Sax shows why she's notorious as a cleaner. Her default weapon is a Desert Eagle (which can be ''[[GunsAkimbo dual-wielded]]'') and her sniping rifle of choice is a Dragunov.
* There's a whole class of these in ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'', with any one of the types available depending on how you build one up and what weapons you use.
* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: World At War'' has two achievements in one level based around performing some Trick Shot marksmanship. At the beginning of "Vendetta," you can earn "The Professional" for only using five shots (without reloading) to clear out the first area (your targets are seven soldiers and an attack dog), while you earn "Gunslinger" for killing a German general with a pistol; said general is about a hundred yards away, has cover, and you only have a pistol if you found it early in the level (you will not find more ammo for it).
* The nameless Gunslinger from the point-and-click UsefulNotes/PlayStation and PC game ''{{Silverload}}''. He does not fit neatly into any of the types because he's controlled by YOU, plus the fact you have limited ammo for the shooting scenes. Good players can turn him into a Type A/D.
* Rubi Malone of ''VideoGame/{{Wet}}'' is a Gunslinger who likes to do acrobatic GunFu combined with up-close and deadly katana work.
* One of the three skill trees for Mordecai in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' is called Gunslinger, and focuses on pistol and revolver skills. The highlights are getting shots that do 100% more damage after a kill and occasionally getting a free bullet.
** VideoGame/Borderlands2 has both Axton the Commando and Salvador the Gunzerker as Vaporizer gunslingers. Axton's "Gunpowder" skill tree focuses on mid-range combat with guns and meshes well with Torgue guns (and occasionally Tediore) while Salvador's "Gun Lust" and "Rampage" focuses on rapidly swapping between weapons or gunzerking most, if not all, of the time to tear apart the banditry of Pandora. [=Zer0=] the Assassin, in sniper builds, is a Trick Shot who lives or dies by putting bullets into critical hit locations; with [=B0re=], he can put shots through two enemies who are lined up, and the second will actually do ''more'' damage (he can also move into Vaporiser, with skills that let him increase firing speed in a short period after scoring a kill and occasionally fire two bullets at once). Gaige the Mechromancer is a weird Trick Shot/Vaporiser hybrid when specced into Anarchy; Anarchy builds faster if you can empty clips quickly, encouraging her to fan the hammer on a Jakobs pistol, while the Close Enough and The Nth Degree skills give her an incredible ability to ricochet misses into enemies from behind...which is kind of hilarious, given that if Anarchy didn't cause her accuracy to drop like a rock, she wouldn't need so much focus on ricochets to begin with!
** In VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel, Nisha the Lawbringer is a gun-slinging CombatSadomasochist cowgirl. Her skills allows her to automatically aim at enemies, ricochet shots towards enemies, and dual wield pistols.
* Pleinair and Asagi in ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}''.
** In the second game, there's Rozalin and the Gunner class, the third has Salvatore and the Gunslinger class, and the fourth has Vulcanus.
* From the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series
** Barret Wallace and Vincent Valentine from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. Barret is a Vaporizer who uses his ArmCannon to pepper enemies into oblivion with MoreDakka, while Vincent is a Trick Shot and Quick Shot with his various firearms, with a focus on dealing out quick and decisive shots.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Irvine Kinneas]] who can be each different types on depending on the ammo type he uses and Laguna Loire who is a BadAssNormal who is a Vaporizer with his signature machine gun. For his appearance in ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Duodecim]]'', Laguna was promoted to being capable of wielding more gun types than your average [=FPS=] protagonist. Aside from his signature [[MoreDakka machine gun]], he also acquired a [[ShortRangeShotgun shotgun]], a SniperRifle, a [[MacrossMissileMassacre multi-rocket launcher]], a [[StuffBlowingUp bazooka]], and several weapon fixtures from a technologically advanced '''airship''' which each fire various flavours of [[FrickinLaserBeams laser]] (one of which being called down from an '''''[[KillSat orbiting satellite]]'''''). All of this, PLUS the few types of [[ThrowDownTheBomblet gren]][[TrickBomb ades]] he also gets to use.
** Between ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' and its sequel, the protagonist Yuna morphed from a WhiteMagicianGirl [[MessianicArchetype messiah]] to a {{Stripperific}} {{Gunslinger}} with an attitude to match. She was probably closest to The Woo.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Lightning]] pulls off enough trick shots with her gunblade to qualify for Trick Shot. One of her normal attacks is shooting an enemy mid-backflip. Sazh isn't nearly as skilled at using guns as the other entries, but has some elements of Vaporizer and Quick Draw.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' has Prompto as the resident gunslinger, unlike the other party members he is not from a trained military background uses guns because their relative ease of use. He hits all four styles of gunslinger depending on the attack, having the ability to do precision attacks, suprising rapid fire, clumsy but accurate GunFu and some pretty nifty trick shots.
* [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] of the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series falls into '''every''' category if you play as the Soldier Class; [[BulletTime Adrenaline Rush]] allows Shepard to hit nearly any point of an enemies body (Trick Shot), [[MoreDakka The Revenant]] has an insanely large ammo clip and will completely obliterate anything in its path (Vaporizer), Shepard, as previously stated has Adrenaline Rush which slows down time to a crawl allowing for completely domination in CQC (The Woo), which will also allow Shepard to kill enemies before they're even aware of his/her presence. If you're an Infiltrator, your main gun is the sniper rifle, letting you pull of some Alan Quatermain Trick Shots. In cutscenes, every Shepard is a QuickDraw, being able to pull off very impressive shots and doing so ''very'' quickly.
** As far as supporting characters go, Garrus is a mix of Trick Shot and QuickDraw (during his EstablishingCharacterMoment he headshots a hostage-holding thug without harming the hostage, and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome without looking]]), Legion is a serious Trick Shot, and in the third game Ashley is a massive Vaporizer thanks to the Marksman power, which significantly boosts her firing rate for a short time- combine it with a fast firing gun with a large clip like the Revenant or the N7 Typhoon and she'll put out an impressive wall of suppression fire.
* ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' allows the player to act as a Vaporizer (with firearms with enough firerate) and/or Type D (with a long range rifle or handgun, especially if you play in turn-based mode).
* Saika Magoichi from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', being basically a WalkingArmory, can fulfil most of the above roles, but is closest to Type B. She commonly carries around magnums, a shotgun, a tommy gun and a heat-seeking rocket launcher (detonation charges or air support optional) and uses a combination of them to blow her enemies to bits.
** Her predecessor Nouhime, despite also being a WalkingArmory was more of The Woo with a focus on GunKata-like moves.
* Any female character in ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' has a portrait shot in the Personnel tab showing them in dramatic poses with guns. Props go to Sniper Marina who after a successful snipe-shot loads her gun onto her shoulders and tosses off a bond-one liner.
%%* Sis, SIE and [[spoiler: Scarlet]] from ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol''.
%%* Tanya from the ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer: Red Alert'' series, who has a lot of fun killing enemies.
%%** ''[=C&C=]'' has other examples as well. In ''Tiberian Sun's'' campaign, there was Umagon, a mutant ActionGirl who was available in certain missions. In ''Tiberium Wars'', Nod's Commando was a FemmeFatale with an invisibility suit and dual lasers. And in ''Red Alert'', the Soviets countered Tanya with Natasha, a ColdSniper who could also call down airstrikes.
%%* ''VideoGame/{{Iji}}'' with her universal gun.
* Maria from ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'' sports guns, some kung fu, and [[spoiler:the ability to manipulate matter and energy with her mind.]]
%%* [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]] carries a pair of pistols in addition to her... [[MostCommonSuperpower other assets]].
%%* Iria Animi of ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'' mashes it up with GunsAkimbo and the WhiteMagicianGirl.
* ''VideoGame/BloodRayne'' has countless ThrowawayGuns. Though they aren't Rayne's main attack in ''[=BloodRayne=] 2'', she has a [[GunsAkimbo nice]] [[MostCommonSuperpower pair]] of blood guns that (without HandWave) cover the [[StandardFPSGuns typical arsenal]].
%%* Bea from ''[[VideoGame/{{Boktai}} Lunar Knights]]'' is the only female of the Three Gunslingers. Her weapon of choice is the Witch. There are other female Guild members who use standard-issue Solar Guns based on the Knight as well.
%%* In ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'', we get Ashelin, Tess, Taryn, and (post-AdrenalineMakeover) Keira, though [[ActionGirl only Ashelin]] actually shoots anything.
* Anne in ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTrespasser'' uses a variety of guns and, because there is no HUD, counts the number of rounds remaining in the weapon out loud.
%%* Most girls who have been playable characters in the VideoGame/{{Contra}} series. Namely Sheena Etranzi, Lucia and [[VideoGame/HardCorpsUprising Krystal]]. [[KatanasAreJustBetter Sayuri doesn't count]].%* Chiyuri Kitashikawa from ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream]]''. Justified, she's from outside Gensokyo and can't use magic for her BulletHell, only a science and technology-based substitute.
* Aya Brea, the heroine of the ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' series. She's also got some deadly magic to back her up; in the sequel one of her spells is to simply boost the power of her gun's bullets.
* One of the targets hunted by Jango Fett ''VideoGame/StarWarsBountyHunter'' is a gunslinger named Longo Two-Guns. His gang occupies a town on Tatooine, resulting in a level not unlike an old western movie.
* A playable subclass for Smuggler characters in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''. Mechanics-wise, a Type C as the class rains down ridiculous amounts of dakka on unsuspecting opponents, relying on fast AOE attacks. The Mercenary BountyHunter sub-class also takes the Vaporizer approach.
* Grit in ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Advance Wars]]'' would appear to be this, being the indirect combat specialist (though even the direct combat units use guns...) of the series, and he even carries a gun in his portrait. His mannerisms seem to be based on a Western hero.
* In ''Videogame/GuildWars2'', half the classes can use guns, but only the Warrior (with rifles) and the Thief (with pistols) really fit this trope, which usually overlaps with TheMusketeer after weapon-switching gets unlocked.
* ''VideoGame/{{Blood}}'''s AntiHero protagonist Caleb is described as a gunslinger in the manual. In the game itself, the closest thing to a revolver he uses is a flare gun.
* ''Videogame/WildStar'' has the Spellslingers, a magical variety who use mystic runes, the power of the universe, and their own sharpshooting to devastate their opponents.
* ''Videogame/AkatsukiBlitzkampf'' gives us Anonym, a ChurchMilitant LadyOfWar who uses [[DualWielding two]] plated [[RevolversAreCool Webley revolvers]] as her weapons. She has traits of both The Woo and the Trick Shot: on one hand she has quite the expertise in GunKata, on the other her fighting style relies a lot on her shooting her opponents before they can approach her since, if she runs out of ammo (after six attacks), she has to quickly recharge and that leaves her completely vulnerable for some seconds.
* Erron Black from ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', who is an Outworld gunslinger but fits the standard look with a face mask.
* The Alchemist from ''Cardinal Quest 2'' has the unlockable "Gunslinger" Perk. Gunslinger Alchemists sacrifice the ability to wield melee weapons and the ability to Craft items in exchange for starting with the Pistol skill. The Alchemist can still acquire the Pistol Skill in the skill tree, meaning the Alchemist can effectively dual wield pistols.
* ''VideoGame/CallOfJuarezGunslinger'' centres around former bounty hunter Silas Greaves recalling his days as one, though [[UnreliableNarrator his claims are questionable]]. In gameplay, this primarily overlaps with "The Woo" through a BulletTime mechanic (that can even be augmented with snap-aiming and trick reloads, among other things). Some boss battles also cover "The Quick Draw" through showdowns, where players must carefully focus and tactfully draw lest they be shot first.
* "VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends" features a number of Marksmen who fit this trope.
** Lucian is one part Trickshot, one part Woo, and one part Vaporizer, mainly in terms of his Ultimate Ability "The Culling" which fires a stream of bullets in one direction. With the right build, even the tankiest of champions will find themselves chunked to pieces.
*** It also helps that Lucian's title during the beta testing was "The Gun Templar".
** Miss Fortune has the traits of Woo with her dual pistols, and traits of a Trickshot with her ability "Double Up", which ricochets off of one enemy and into another. However, she leans more towards the role of a Vaporizer with her abilities "Make It Rain" which drops a hail fire of bullets from above, slowing anyone who passes through it and her ultimate ability "Bullet Time" ( [[BulletTime no not that Bullet Time]] )which fires wave after wave of bullet in a large gone area, requiring her to stand still during the duration of the ability.
** Jinx is the very definition of "a Vaporizer", a psychopathic outlaw toting around a large Machine Gun she affectionately refers to as "Pow-Pow" and a rocket launcher she calls "Fishbones (whom she talks to apon occasion), she terrorizes the late game, tearing whole teams to shreds while switching between the two.
* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'s'' [=McCree=] is the most obvious choice, being both a Quick Draw and Vaporizer. How ever, Many characters apply.
** Trickshots include Solider 76, Widowmaker, and, debatabley, Hanzo and Junkrat
** Vaporizers are common, including [=McCree=], Reaper, 76, Tracer, Bastion, Torbjorn, and Roadhog.
** The Woo Could be said to be represented by Tracer and Reaper
* Several games in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' franchise and its spinoffs let the human characters wield guns as secondary weapons. Some characters, however, use them as their main weapon.
** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'': Despite having become the Fairy Queen in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', Nozomi still primarily uses firearms.
** ''VideoGame/Persona2'': Maya and Katsuya wield pistols, though only Maya duel-wields hers. Additionally, Eikichi has a machine gun disguised as a ''guitar case''.
** ''VideoGame/Persona3'': Aigis and her [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot very literal firearms]] is a Vaporizer. [[DarkMessiah Takaya]] also wields a revolver.
** ''VideoGame/Persona4'': Naoto wields a handgun, and ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' reveals her to be the Trick Shot, including ricochets and suingle-shot instant kill. By comparison, [[spoiler:Adachi]] much prefers {{Pistol Whip}}ping his opponents.
** The original ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' and ''VideoGame/Persona5'' let everybody carry some sort of ranged secondary weapon, from pistols over shotguns to ''grenade launchers and {{Ray Gun}}s''. The definite example however is [[spoiler:the Persona Satanael in ''5'', which kills Yaldabaoth with a single shot from its BFG]].
* Most [[SquishyWizard Squishy Wizards]] in ''VideoGame/NexusClash'' become gunslingers to make up for their lack of defense with a good offense - an offense good enough that it had to be nerfed multiple times to become ''just'' one of the most lethal combat styles in the series.
* ''VideoGame/TargetOfDesireEpisode1'': Maia is packing heat, but that's not the only thing she's packing. Hi-o.
* ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'' has several freelancers primarily wielding guns and evoking this trope:
** Lockwood is a {{cyberpunk}} gunslinger, dual-wielding pistols and being a mixture of the Trick Shot and The Woo. His primary attack is a trick shot that bounces off walls, and he dual-wields when using his area-of-effect attack and his [[LimitBreak ultimate]], the latter of which is a long-range DashAttack that hits everyone in the vicinity of his movement.
** Elle is closest to The Woo, with her weapon of choice being a shotgun. She excels on fast movements and getting in close before blowing enemies away, and has the ability to perform an UnnecessaryCombatRoll almost at will to dash behind corners and cover. Her ultimate goes into Vaporizer territory, being a massively overcharged shotgun blast that [[BlownAcrossTheRoom blows both her and any targets away]].
** Juno is a firm Vaporizer, dual-wielding laser miniguns attached to a harness. Her basic attack is a pair of giant cones that hit everyone inside, and her ultimate overloads her guns into firing a giant DeathRay that incinerates anyone crossing its beam.


* Gordito from ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'' wields GunsAkimbo with ImprobableAimingSkills -- enough skill to earn the respect of the [=McNinja=] family. His late father, The Amazing Flying Shooting Juan, was even better.
** The Amazing Flying Shooting Juan's greatest trick deserves some explanation:
*** An audience volunteer picks a card without giving Juan any hint which one.
*** The whole deck is thrown into the air as Juan leaps from a high platform into a small water tank.
*** On the way down, he shoots the volunteer's card out of the air.
*** The shot propels the card into an entirely different part of the city and into the leg of a person.
*** The person shot is knocked into a police station, at which point they are identified as the person who looted the volunteer's apartment some time ago.
%%* [[StrawberryDeathCake SDC's]] Jessica has no supernatural powers, but she has [[http://rainchildstudios.com/strawberry/?p=1284 a magical gun]].
* Kid Katydid from ''Webcomic/TheBugPond''.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s Jade Harley is an expert markswoman, and has her Strife Specibus allocated with the Riflekind abstratus.
** On the Troll side, we have Eridan Ampora, who wields an energy rifle from the back of a flying seahorse, and is VERY proud of his gun.
** Jake English likes guns a great deal and has allocated his specibus to [[GunsAkimbo 2xPistolkind]].
* The Scarecrow of ''Webcomic/GothOz'' is a SociopathicHero who always carries a shotgun around with him.
%%* Soli of ''Webcomic/TheMeek.''
%%* Divi from HoneyAndTheWhirlwind has a magic/alchemy gun.
* Amical from ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]'' is so good with a gun that [[http://morphe.thewebcomic.com/comics/1747280/page-64-ta-da/ he can fire ten shots at five people]] with each bullet aimed perfectly at their respective hearts and foreheads. He is also a powerful enough of a mage to stop all ten bullets before they reached their mark.
* In ''Webcomic/TheWolfAtWestonCourt'' renegade [[OurFairiesAreDifferent Faerie soldier]] Nova Petrov shoots a knife [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands out of a Dwarf's hand]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Runners}}'' features the CasualDangerDialogue prone, LeapAndFire adherent Trick Shot [[InSeriesNickname Candy Bandit]], or Cember Kogi. He once (to our knowledge) made a bet on his own ImprobableAimingSkills and won easily.
* Near everyone uses them in the first two issues of ''Webcomic/SonicTheGUNProject'', including the titular hero Sonic (though he still does uses speed and spin-dashes). Shadow of course is an absolute beast in the duel-wielding department.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* This {{trope}} is the claim to fame for ''VideoGame/{{Pico}}'' of ''Website/{{Newgrounds}}''. Most often, he's a Vaporizer, preferring an AK-47 or a brace of Uzis to blast his opposition.
* Ballistic, a superhero from the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' is said to be the best shot in the world with a handgun, and qualifies as a [[ImprobableAimingSkills Trick Shot]], a master of GunFu, and is absolutely a QuickDraw.
** Sniper is a [[ThePunisher Punisher-style]] vigilante who uses [[MoreDakka gym-bags full of guns]]. He thinks of himself as a hero; most of the heroes see him as a villain.
* Hive, of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. Looks like a [[OlderThanTheyLook 17-year-old blonde]]. Shoots like a 50-year-old master sniper.
** Or Eldritch, looks like a young woman, shoots like a psychotic heavy-weapons range instructor; Generator might qualify too depending on your definition of 'girl', Loophole is quite proficient with her .45 handgun, and Bladedancer is secretly training with guns to surprise her opponents, while Bunker specializes in explosive ordinance (Girl With Bazooka)... considering the setting and the fact that training is readily available it's not uncommon to come across a girl that packs a gun or at least is proficient with one.
* The bounty hunter Moira Quicksilver in Podcast/TheEndlessNight, also a distinct example of GunsAkimbo with her two pistols Righty and Lefty.
* The Armada Marines of Literature/DamselsAndDirigibles, an Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom production, and a lot of the other female characters.
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' has many.
** Freelancer Agent Carolina is The Woo, combining her DanceBattler moves with light one-handed guns (such as a Magnum or a pair of Plasma Rifles).
** Agent Texas is the same.
** Agent South Dakota as well.
** Agent Wyoming is a Trick Shot.
** Agent North Dakota is the epitome of Trick Shot, at one point sshooting a swarm of missiles out of the air with a pair of Sniper Rifles, firing ridiculously quickly.
** Agent Washington is a Trick Shot. He's not only extremely proficient with his Battle Rifle, but once destroyed a Hornet by shooting the controls while it was trying to dodge, while he was in free fall.
* Simon Heller, a character in The Unwaking setting from ''Wiki/TheWanderersLibrary'', is a GunMarshal. What that entails is not exactly explained, but seems to involve an empathic connection with all guns.
* Neogicians from ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' combine this with TheEngineer and add a BioAugmentation extra for those that play in the technologically advanced faction.
* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', most characters carry outrageous transforming weapons which serve as both firearms and melee weapons, but some really put an emphasis on the gunslinging side of things.
** Emerald has a [[GunsAkimbo pair]] of large revolvers which she is an unnervingly good shot with, and she has a tendency to twirl them like she's in a western.
** Coco is the resident Vaporizer, toting a ''huge'' gatling gun which can mow down swarms of weak enemies or steadily wear down a tougher one.
** Ironwood carries a powerful pistol which he uses to make incredible trick shots, such as firing over his shoulder and nailing an opponent behind him without even looking. He's also highly proficient in GunFu and capable of lethal PistolWhipping.
* From ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'', we have Percy, resident GadgeteerGenius and long-range fighter par excellence. Though to even build a pistol in the first place [[spoiler: he needed some [[DealWithTheDevil help.]]]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Crazy Stunts in ''WesternAnimation/SkysurferStrikeForce''. It helps that his guns have more than one use, but also his ImprobableAimingSkills while in mid flight on a HoverBoard.
* Shane Gooseman from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOftheGalaxyRangers'' - it helps to be a genetically engineered SuperSoldier with better-than-human senses and reflexes as well as Clint Eastwood {{Expy}}.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Annie Oakley. Legend has it that she could pin an ace of hearts card to a tree, walk twenty yards away, then shoot the heart right out of the center.
* Wild Bill Hickock served as a marshal during the height of the Wild West. He was so fast with his guns that he was able to fend off an ambush in what is really the ''only'' "Showdown at High Noon" type of gun battle on historical record.
* The White Tights of urban legend, an AmazonBrigade of blonde, white-clad sniper women with a hate-on for the Russians.
* The recently-passed Bob Munden was a wizard with his single action .45LC revolver. A real life Lucky Luke, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcZHVspVIDs Munden was capable of drawing his pistol faster than the blink of an eye (literally). He could shoot multiple targets faster than the eye is able to process, split playing cards edgewise, and was able to use the reflection of a diamond ring to aim at his target.]]
* D. A. "Jelly" Bryce. He began his career with the Oklahoma City Police Department, for which he "interviewed" by fast-drawing and shooting a target group that could be covered with a silver dollar. J. Edgar Hoover himself waived the college degree requirement in order to hire the guy, who was known to practice his fast-draw in front of a mirror for eight hours straight at a time. As a "special negotiator", brought in to deal with hostage situations and stand-offs--with terminal consequences for the suspects who chose to try to out-shoot him--he became so well-known and so feared that law enforcement only had to ''call him to the scene'' and suspects would surrender without a fight. In 1945, ''Life'' magazine ran an article on Bryce, featuring a series of stroboscopic photos that documented his speed demonstration of holding a coin at his shoulder height, dropping it, drawing his gun, and shooting the coin before it passed the level of his waist. That trick shot only took ''two-fifths of a second''.
* [[http://www.miculek.com/ Jerry Miculek]] is a combination of the Trick Shot (capable of putting shots onto a target two hundred yards away from a pistol in both conventional and upside-down grips) and the Vaporizer (holds numerous speed-shooting records, including six shots on-target from a revolver in under one second).
