Lampshaded in David Weber and John Ringo's "Empire of Man" series when Prince Roger reveals he has an assassin program in his "toot", the computer embedded in his skull.

Moved the Ramayana example to Multishot.

In the ending of The Odyssey when Odysseus successfully gets an arrow through 12 axes, is that an example of this trope? I've never been clear on whether he shot through the actual axe blades, or rings attached to them, and I can't figure out what the distance was.

Most visual interpretations are that he shot through the small rings on the ax handles; the axes were positioned such that all the rings were in air making a straight path for an very long distance. Odysseus apparently shot straight through all of them at range with a giant-ass bow and a giant-ass arrow that would barely fit through the rings.

How about we find out how much of this trope is truth in television and how much is just rule of cool.
