* When Simon defeats [[spoiler:Lordgenome]] in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', he blows a round hole through his chest. There's no blood or guts or anything... just a cylindrical void where his guts should be. Which doesn't stop [[spoiler:Lordgenome]] from making a long-winded FinalSpeech ''without his lungs''. He gets better. [[OracularHead So]][[WetwareCPU rt]] [[YourMindMakesItReal of.]]

* Don Flack in ''Series/{{CSI NY}}'', when a bomb drove debris into his torso. Played realistically that time, though, as Mac had to use his combat first aid skills to keep him from bleeding to death before he was rescued.

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', there's when Goku finally kills Demon King Piccolo. Basically, Goku blasts a hole in him big enough for him to fly through. King Piccolo gets to say a few lines, spit an egg far away, and say a few more words about it. All while still flying. Then he [[MadeOfExplodium explodes]].

** Future Trunks has done this to people and been on the receiving end of it. As the one doing the deed, he blows a hole through King Cold with a God Breaker blast, leaving the tyrant alive long enough to beg for his life, only blow him to pieces by another blast. As the one on the receiving end, he gets blasted through the chest by Cell after he comes back from his near-death experience. By the text, Trunks doesn't die right away, but he isn't conscious either.
** Vegeta also gets a hole blasted in his chest by Krillin in a gamble to get Dende to heal him so he'll become strong enough to beat Frieza. In the manga, is literally seen walking with a hole where his spine should be. In the anime, however, he is simply left with a sizeable wound in his gut.

* WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy has one-time "historical" gag character Sir Henry [[MeaningfulName Giantholeinthetorso]] Wickenshire, a man who has this as his default living anatomy and is shown to be very effective in a gun duel as a result, especially compared to his onscreen opponent, the equally aptly named Sir Joseph Broadfront.
