Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/SleepyHollowHigh'', Z shoots the Horseman and he falls over. He then gets back to his feet with no ill effects


* In ''Manga/TokyoShinobiSquad'', Jin Narumi's ninpo art, the [[MagnetismManipulation "Magnetic Field Technique"]], effectively makes him this, as he can stop bullets in midair with a wave of his hand and send them right back at their owners.

* The ''Film/{{Batman|1989}}'' [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga films]] often play around with the fact he wears a bullet-proof suit. Usually for dramatic effect.

Added DiffLines:

* In fifth edition Lycanthropes are immune to damage from non magical, non silvered weapons, so a low level party could be taken out by 'wererat' if they didn't bring any magic.

Added DiffLines:

** A planet of robots has a B-grade monster movie where the monster is a human who is "impervious to their most powerful magnetic rays", yet can be [[WeakSauceWeakness brought down by a simple]] [[WoodenStake sharpened stick]].


*** Zig zagged much later on in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' when Mai snipes [[EvilCounterpart Goku Black]] with sniper rifle (admittedly with a special bullet) that goes straight though him and knocks him down. Not to mention Goku, getting taken down with a simple laser blast by Sorbet since Goku didnít have his guard up. Later Goku also gets scratched on his forearm when shot by a normal human indicating he was too relaxed and needed to train harder.

** Even if the person doesn't have a Stand, [[ThePowerOfTheSun Hamon]] energy is enough to defend against machine gunfire as Joseph Joestar gloriously [[https://youtu.be/vxr6bRn7OEY?t=224 displays]] in Part 2.
* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' since it's [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy medieval]] it's "Immune to Cannonballs" example with the [[PhysicalGod God Hand]] as when Guts fires on Femto [[spoiler: aka Griffith]] with his ArmCannon [[https://i1.mangareader.net/berserk/3/berserk-1556005.jpg it doesn't work]]. Guts did same to Slan later and while it does actually "damage" her (or the physical body she possessing at the very least) Guts only manages to get her [[CombatSadomasochist aroused]]. Outside the God Hand the only other Apostle shown to be immune to Gut's cannon is Grunbeld whose Greatshield can repel the cannon balls, actually subverted with the rest of the monsters who greatly damaged or killed by gunpowder. Cannons are just as much a StoryBreakerPower as magic in Berserk.

** Dwight has less painful variation in "The Big Fat Kill" where the badge from a dead cop he had in his jacket pocket, protected him from a Sniper bullet.

** Besides Wolverine there other ''ComicBook/XMen'' who are immune to gunfire: ComicBook/{{Colossus}} who has an [[SuperToughness organic steel body]], ComicBook/KittyPryde whose {{Intangibility}} allows pretty much [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11130/111306284/5587678-kitty+reaction+time+feat3.png everything to pass though her]] and ComicBook/{{Rogue}} who can catch [[BulletCatch bullets]] and throw them back at the same velocity. Can't forget Magneto who while technically isn't physically immune to bullets, is [[http://majorspoilers.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/NewXMen1504.jpg unaffected]] by them thanks to his [[MagnetismManipulation Mutation]].

** ''Film/IronMan'' repeatedly demonstrates the imperviousness of Tony Stark's suit to ammunition. His suit still takes damage, getting very much scratched up and dented. He even has a bit of trouble getting it off again after the first time he takes it into battle due to the damage it took. In defense of Tony's design, the suit by that time had taken hits from triple-A followed by a crash-landing, an air-to-air missile, and an F-22's cannon. Even his crappy first suit still was bulletproof enough for a minor Ten-Rings goon to get headshot by his own bullet when it reflected off Tony's helmet.

*** [[spoiler: ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' retroactively averts this as Sarah's BMG sniper rifle, pierces though the T-800's exoskeleton, though to be to fair to Kyle in the original he or Sarah didn't have that kind of firepower]].



** Vampires can't be killed by bullets. [[ImmortalityHurts That said, they do hurt a lot]]. Spike has biggest feat of toughness against bullets as in "Underneath" while TakingTheBullet for Gunn and Lindsey he gets his back gorily shredded by a Uzi, but Spike doesn't [[MadeOfIron even slow down]] or [[OnlyAFleshWound show any real pain]].

*** Mr. X from the remake of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' is the pinnacle of this. No amount of bullets can even knock him out; at most he'll just ''stumble'' for a few seconds. The only way to get him off your back for any length of time is to progress the story.

** Subverted with the rest of the Strawhats as even the strongest members behind Luffy, Zoro and Sanji, still have to [[DodgetheBullet dodge like hell]] when they're shot at. Though Zoro has to SuperReflexes to cut firerounds as seen in Film Z and Sanji is actually able to [[OnlyAFleshWound shrug]] [[MadeOfIron off]] a bullet wound while saving Luffy in Totto Land.

*** Certain Paramecia Users other than Luffy can also be immune to bullets, such as Daz Bones (aka Mr 1) thanks to his steel-like [[LivingWeapon blade body]] and Charlotte Katakuri who can [[CombatClairvoyance sense where the rounds will hit]] and nullify them safely.. There are also some Zoans such as Pekoms, thanks to his Turtle Shell powers (though a sneak attack can still at least injure him as Capone Bege showed).

* ''Film/PowerRangers2017'': When Rita Repulsa gets shot in the chest with a shotgun, all it does is knock her down for a few seconds.



** In ''Skeleton Man'', the titular monster doesn't even react to being shot with a ''mini-gun''. In the same fight scene, the hero is able to judo throw the skeleton man.

** In case your wondering, having their shells ''explode while inside them'' isn't enough to do an Abrams in, It'll just get turned into a fireball shooting upwards and out of the tank - without harming anyone/anything inside.

* This is the main advantage Franchise/{{RoboCop}} has over conventional cops, along with ImprobableAimingSkills. The only weapons capable of harming him are antimateriel weapons like the Cobra Assault Cannon.
