* This is just one of Link's repertoire of improbable skills in the animated adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda''.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "WesternAnimation/WildAndWoollyHare", WesternAnimation/BugsBunny brags to WesternAnimation/YosemiteSam that he can ricochet a shot all over the saloon until it parts Sam's hair right down the middle. He fires, and the bullet does indeed carom where Bugs said it would, but it seems to have missed Sam... until Sam's hat splits open, revealing a perfect part through his hair. Bugs Bunny also does a trick shot with a glowing rivet (who needs guns) in "Homeless Hare".
* Used in ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}'' episode "The Golden Goddess" to a ridiculous degree. Alex Sector (never previously known for his aiming skills) disables an elephant with laser cannons without harming it. He fires the cannons the elephant's feet such that the elephant steps/falls into the blast craters... which are the size of its feet. Alex accomplishes this feat:
-->¤From above and behind
-->¤While parachuting from a plane in a semi truck
-->¤With the '''giant laser cannons''' mounted distally on the truck
-->¤Hitting beneath '''all four''' feet on both sides of the elephant, without hitting the elephant
-->¤Missing only one set of three paired shots
-->¤With the "camera" noticeably rocking to convey how unsteady a platform he's shooting from
-->¤This just after commenting "... if I can just keep this blasted truck steady enough."

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends'': Myth/RobinHood, one of the figures from the Land of Legends, embodies the myth of the greatest archer who ever lived, which he demonstrates by shooting an arrow lengthwise with another arrow and then doing the same to the second with a third, and by getting a bull's eye with five arrows at once. When the legends start fading, he loses his aim and suffers an emotional breakdown as a result.

Ferb casually does "The Robot" for a couple of tourists, who give him a quarter. Then he proceeds to slingshot the coin straight into the slot and save his sister's life.
** In both "Meapless in Seattle" and "Last Day of Summer", Candace saves the day by throwing a small object at some sort of target.

This gets him yelled at by Cartman, as shooting a man in the crotch is [[EvenEvilHasStandards is too cruel even for him]].
* The ARC Troopers from ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' possess impressive powers of accuracy, almost every shot blasts a droid's head off and a single trooper takes out a Trade Federation armored tank in less than 5 seconds by running up the side of it, blasting the top off, shooting several shots from the inside of the machine and running like hell.
* Sky on ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Pahkitew Island'' displays this when performing a target shooting act using her [[{{Gasshole}} super-strong belches]]. She destroys two targets with a single belch, without affecting Chris who is sitting in between them.

This enables such feats as BlastingItOutOfTheirHands, creating a PinballProjectile, knowing how to LeadTheTarget from kilometers away, or the Offhand Backshot (the firearm-based answer to the OffhandBackhand), and is in no way dependent on the factual accuracy of the weapons in question. A frequent user of this trope is TheWestern, where the heroes are often using guns that were, in real life, notoriously inaccurate at anything other than point-blank range, for feats that would make a modern-day sniper with a top-tuned high-tech rifle turn [[GreenEyedMonster green with envy]]. It can also be done by an ArcherArchetype, who might emulate Myth/RobinHood by [[SplittingTheArrow splitting an arrow down the middle]].

{{Multishot}} successfully.

In game settings, this can be a natural result of a game simply ''allowing'' characters to be that good. If skill improvement is open-ended rather than hitting a {{Cap}} at some point, or if caps exist but the maximum allowed by the rules is sufficiently high, a character's raw skill rating (however a specific ruleset expresses it) may end up outweighing situational modifiers enough to make even "improbable" shots pretty much routine. (Depending on the system, of course, this can also quickly lead into CripplingOverspecialization and/or SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining territory if you're on any sort of character creation/advancement "budget".)



* Zen Archery and Zen Marksmanship in ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' divide range penalties by 3 when used successfully. The Precision Aiming technique is meant to be a more realistic version, taking much longer to do and requiring special equipment for a more modest gain.
** {{TabletopGame/GURPS}} also features traits and/or skills that specifically allow BlastingItOutOfTheirHands, PinballProjectile, [[LeadTheTarget Leading The Target]] from kilometers away, and the [[OffhandBackhand Offhand Backshot]], as well as tricks like [[ShootTheRope Shooting The Rope]], shooting off hats, cigarettes, etc., all the way up to outright impossible tricks like curving shots to hit people behind cover, all depending on the realism settings.

Being able to put a bolt through the center of a coin from 300 paces is considered the bare minimum of skill needed to get into the regiment to begin with, and constant training afterwards results in some of the most ludicrously accurate long-range marksmen in the Old World.



*** Hive Guard from the Tyranid Race. These models are ''so'' accurate, they're capable of attacking models they can't hit or even ''see'' - with no penalty to their hit roll. This is due to a combination of being controlled by a psychic hive mind and the fact that their missiles are alive.

* [[ColdSniper Sola]] from ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' is an insanely skilled markswoman, both in and out of her [[AMechByAnyOtherName Ryder]]ís cockpit.

In gameplay, her sniper rifle has the best range and accuracy of any weapon, and when she goes into her SuperMode (which explicitly enhances her visual acuity, perception and reflexes, amongst other things) she can hit any enemy on the map from any distance with 100% accuracy.
