** Literature/CiaphasCain dodges incoming fire in just about every story. In ''Caves of Ice'', he even manages to dodge a Necron gauss flayer. However, his [[SpiderSense combat instincts]] are so highly developed that he's usually able to start the dodge before the attacker actually fires.

* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' novel ''Literature/GreyKnights'', [[spoiler: Ligeia's death cultists]] dodge almost all the firepower thrown at them.
* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Literature/BloodAngels'' novel ''Deus Sanguinius'', the daemon Malfallax dodges the rounds fired at him by the Space Marines. As a princeling of Tzeentch, Chaos god of fate, he has an ability that allows him to see where the rounds go and move appropriately; when the body part enabling this is damaged, he fares considerably worse at avoiding.

** In the ''Literature/{{Ultramarines}}'' novel ''The Chapter’s Due'', Uriel Ventris and his fellow Space Marines open fire on a troupe of Slaaneshi swordsmen. After three consecutive volleys of massed bolter fire, only ''two'' of the swordsmen go down: the remaining fifteen dodged every single bolt round while casually strolling up to the Ultramarines.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/CodeGeassThePreparedRebellion'': Sayoko dodges a bullet from Tetsuya by replacing herself with a large box right as he's pulling the trigger.



to:

* ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'': Koro-sensei's most common trick, and the main thing that makes him so nigh-impossible to kill, is using his SuperSpeed and SuperReflexes to dodge hails of automatic gunfire. Granted the guns the students usually use against him are air rifles firing special BB's, but when facing actual live ammo he dodges just as easily.

Added DiffLines:

* Chung's avatar in ''WebComic/TowerOfGod'' effortlessly dodges the bullets Batis shoots at him, presumably because the Hidden Floor is a virtual world and he runs this part of it, so his avatar can do almost anything. Endorsi manages to score a hit on him by teleporting one of the bullets in mid-air.

* In ''Literature/TheReckonersTrilogy'' the [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Epic]] Fortuity has precognitive abilities allowing him to see a short distance into the future as well as super reflexes which make him generally able to avoid getting shot. However David notes that he relies on knowing that he's about to get shot with his former power and using the latter to get out of the line of fire before the bullets are shot as super reflexes won't allow him to dodge automatic weapon fire.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''Series/WonderWoman''. She avoids gunshots not by dodging them but by letting them hit her...on her wrisys which are covered by bullet-proof bracelets.


* In ''Manga/OnePiece'' Mihawk changes the course of two bullets fired at him with his ''BFS''. Zoro claims that it is because his sword is so gentle. Later on we see Zoro dodging a gun shot at point-blank range fired by a World Noble.

* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'': Part of the training for the new recruits is to learn to run through a hail of burning arrows without being hit. This is almost an inversion in that in the beginning when they are no good at it they do some actual dodging, but once he's got the hang of it, Yao runs through without being hit without making any visible effort to dodge.

* A pretty damn [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Awesome moment]] in episode three of ''Anime/{{K}}'' has Yata dodge someone shooting him at point blank range! Justified by his enhanced abilities and powers from being a Clansman of the Red King. He then proceeds to thrash the guy who shot him and his companion.

* ''Fanfic/OldWest'': Rattlesnake Jake does this when Johan Quall fires at him with [[GunsAkimbo two revolvers]]. This is a case of a justified trope because Jake has memorized Quall's firing pattern [[CrazyPrepared in case]] the ring-tailed cat would ever turn his guns on the rattlesnake.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/XmenDaysOfFuturePast'', Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver not only dodges the bullets in the Pentagon's kitchen, he moves those about to hit the other X-men so they miss, and makes all the security guards punch out themselves or each other.
