* Also happens in ''Film/TheScorpionKing''. The villain likes to show off this ability in front of his troops. The first time we see it, he catches an arrow during practice. Later, when the hero goes to fire an arrow at him, he tries to block it with his swords... and misses. (Mathias is shown before the shot to have pulled his massive bow back farther than he usually does, adding the extra power needed to get past the villain's hands.)

** A 5th Edition Monk learns the ability Deflect Missiles, which reduces the damage caused by a missile from any ranged weapon attack. If the damage is reduced to 0 the missile is caught rather than deflected. The monk can then use a Ki point to throw the missile as a ranged weapon using the stats of a dart.
