15 Movie Characters That Survived Getting Shot In The Head

David Duchovny as Special Agent Fox Mulder in The X-Files: Fight the Future (1998)

In the first, and far better, of the conspiratorial X-Files movies, Special Agent Fox Mulder dials paramedics to treat his partner, Special Agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), who lays unconscious after a bee sting transmits a virus to her. When the driver of what appears to be an ambulance arrives, he shoots the FBI man in the head and takes off with the attractive redhead.

In another example of poor aim and follow-through, the slug merely grazes Mulder's temple, knocking him out but allowing him to exit the hospital he wakes up in and eventually track down his partner in Antarctica, where she is being stored in a lab that is actually, go figure, a giant alien spacecraft.
