Does it count if the superhero uses (unrealistic) rubber rounds as his/her way to dispense Non-Lethal K.O. to regular enemies and switches to harder ammo and/or grenade against foes with Super Toughness or Attack Drones or Pointless Doomsday Device?

Would Bioshock count as an example? Seeing as the main character has guns and super powers?
