* Most characters on ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'' are this by necessity, since it centres on an NYPD precinct, but it's rarely shown as the characters are very hesitant to use their sidearms. At one point, main character Jake effortlessly shoots the Penis Brain and Jaw of a silhouette target (the PB and J, as he calls it) with pinpoint accuracy. His love interest Amy is no slouch either, at one point non-fatally shooting someone in the leg with such accuracy that it doesn't cause any lasting damage. Their duty sergeant, Terry Jeffords, is noted to be the precinct's top marksman.


* In ''Series/TerrorInATexasTown'', TheDragon Johnny Crale is a QuickDraw, who is trying the fact his right hand has been replaced by [[ArtificialLimbs a prosthesis]]; forcing him to draw with his left.

* Usopp in ''Manga/OnePiece'' somehow manages to be a Trick Shot without ever actually using a firearm (at least not one using traditional chemical propulsion). Apparently, he inherits it from his father, who, while we never see being engaged in any particularly amazing examples, brags about being a Trick Shot all of the time.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'', being a series about pirates on the high seas, will have its fair share of characters who embody this trope, both among good guys and bad guys:

** Braham falls squarely within The Woo, darting about with jet-propelled shoes as he fires at his enemies. A style as acrobatic as his is necessary due to the nature of his guns, however; his ammunition is low-damage but emits bright flashes of light when he shoots, meaning his fighting style is designed around disorientation.
** [[FlyingDutchman Vander Decken IX]] has this trope as a superpower: He ate the Target-Target Fruit, which allows any projectiles launched via his actions to always head toward their mark. The only ways to get them to miss are to either put something in the way that will stop the projectile or to knock him out before the projectile reaches its destination.
** Jean Ango is the Quick Draw to Usopp's Trick Shot--he doesn't carry firearms on him either, and instead he is an incredibly fast and accurate shot using [[CatchAndReturn weapons he steals from his adversaries mid-battle]]. They don't even have to be guns. He ''throws'' things with as lethal aim as he shoots.
** The entirety of the Firetank Pirates has traits of The Vaporizer, with every member carrying Tommy guns who won't hesitate to shoot anyone who looks like a threat. Makes sense, considering they're themed on The Mafia. In addition, they keep themselves on top with the most advanced long-range weaponry available, and Gotti has a minigun for a prosthetic arm.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HecRamsey'': Hec has a fearsome reputation as a gunslinger (a Type D), and it is this that gets him hired as deputy police chief of New Prospect. However, Hec has decided that the age of the of the gunslinger is past, and he is working on becoming a scientific detective. This doesn't mean that he can't throw down with the best of them when the need arises, though.

He has a couple Woo-like tricks up his sleeve, but is ultimately too slow to really qualify as one - especially given his unfortunate tendency to get hit by his own shots.


* [[http://www.miculek.com/ Jerry Miculek]] is a combination of the Trick Shot (capable of putting shots onto a target two hundred yards away from a pistol in both conventional and upside-down grips) and the Vaporizer (holds numerous speed-shooting records, including six shots on-target from a revolver in under one second).

** [[TheBigGuy Arthur Morgan]] the protagonist of the prequel is unsurprisingly cut of the same wood. Because of the gameplay improvements made for the game, some might even argue that Arthur is even a better gunslinger than John.

[[spoiler:Given that you play as Marston in the epilogue, though, and that he inherits all the skills Morgan has, it's possible he's just as good as Morgan was, [[RealityEnsues but lost some of his edge after killing Micah because he was trying to lay low, and thus had no reason to keep practicing his gun skills]]]].

The player characters can fit any type depending on the weapons they have, and if they pick up enough during a run, they can end up being all four at once.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'', this is all Tenno and their Warframes, but there is one Warframe that stands out among the others in this area: Mesa. Her abilities are all about ranged combat, to the point that her passive abilities bolster usage of single or [[GunsAkimbo dual-wielded pistols]], and grant extra health for not bringing a melee weapon. That said, even the melee weapon associated with her, the Redeemer, is also a gun.

** And in the episode "War Stories", River pulls off a CrowningMomentOfAwesome of the Trick Shot variety.

** As far as supporting characters go, Garrus is a mix of Trick Shot and QuickDraw (during his EstablishingCharacterMoment he headshots a hostage-holding thug without harming the hostage, and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome without looking]]), Legion is a serious Trick Shot, and in the third game Ashley is a massive Vaporizer thanks to the Marksman power, which significantly boosts her firing rate for a short time- combine it with a fast firing gun with a large clip like the Revenant or the N7 Typhoon and she'll put out an impressive wall of suppression fire.
