Added DiffLines:

* A ''very'' [[NotTheIntendedUse unconventional use]] of fairies in ''Anime/FairyGone'': these beings are impervious to bullets, so their users can manifest them as mobile cover as needed.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has rules that allow a tower shield to be planted, meaning the user sacrifices all actions and the shield's usual bonus to AC and takes full cover (untargetable, although enemies can certainly aim for the shield) instead.

*** The Canadian Military is often credited with inventing the Creeping Barrage in WW1 and used it to great effect a number of times, which is quite possibly why Adolf Hitler had such respect for Canadian troops in World War II. The Vimy ridge memorial notably was guarded by a cadre of SS with orders to shoot anyone attempting to defile or mock it.

* Splatoon has the sub weapon Splash Wall, which is basically a pair windshield wipers on a rig set up to spray a wall of ink to block enemy fire. They have limited duration and durability, but immediately splat anyone trying to go through them.

Added DiffLines:

** The Red Stinger is one when placed on the right side of the lawn, though since he costs three times as much as a Wall-nut and has less than half the health of one, this isn't really all that useful.

Added DiffLines:

** The Volt warframe can also deploy a barrier of electricity, which has the side effect of strengthening allied fire that passes through it. He can optionally pick the barrier up and move it around.


** Winston's Barrier Projector lays down a temporary shield bubble.

to:

** Winston's Barrier Projector lays down a temporary shield bubble.bubble that protects from all angles, though it has a limited duration and resilience.
** Orisa can throw down a stationary force field wall that protects her and her comrades from one direction.


** The Garlic has less health than Wall-Nut, but it diverts zombies to other lanes.




to:

* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombiesHeroes'' introduces more plants that play this role. Wall-Nut, Pea-Nut, Garlic, and Sweet Potato also return.
** The Water Chestnut has slightly more health than Wall-Nut, and can be placed in the water.
** The Mirror-Nut has the same amount of health as a Wall-Nut, and it damages the zombie hero whenever a nut plant receives damage.
** The Poppin' Poppies create three Deployable Covers, in the form of Lil' Buddies. Each Lil' Buddy is a OneHitPointWonder, but will heal the plant hero for 2 HP each when spawned, for a total of 6 HP.
** The Prickly Pear has slightly less health than Wall-Nut, but when it takes damage, it deals 4 damage to a zombie in its lane, if there is one.

Added DiffLines:

** The Holly Barrier's a more traditional example. Like Endurian, it has good durability and it hurts zombies attacking it. It also can launch a berry at a targeted tile that knocks back zombies, and if the tile doesn't have a plant or obstacle it'll leave a spiked barrier that also damages zombies attacking it.

The Vimy ridge memorial notably was guarded by a cadre of SS with orders to shoot anyone attempting to defile or mock it.

* When dismounted, troops can use friendly vehicles, such as [[AwesomePersonnelCarrier Infantry Fighting Vehicles]] and [[TankGoodness tanks]] as cover during gunfights. This way they can have some protection from the small arms fire that likely makes up the majority of any fight, and are better able to pick off [[GlassCannon anyone carrying an anti-tank weapon]]. [[DontTryThisAtHome If you ever choose to use this technique]], remember that the [[TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs vast majority of motor vehicles]] [[ConcealmentEqualsCover are not actually bulletproof]].
