* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', the "Archer" class can gain the ability "Arrow Catch", which effectively allows them to block and counter any arrow-based attack by doing this. Ninja have the ability to catch any thrown projectile, but not arrows. On a similar note, due to a bug, the "Sword Grasp" ability of the Samurai Class, works against EVERYTHING -- swords, maces, fists, arrows, and yes -- bullets too.

The sequels would add the "Return Fire" ability which allowed a character to not only catch an arrow, but to throw it back at the shooter as a counterattack.

** In ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', Comicbook/{{Loki}} catches one of ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}'s arrows a second before it can go through his eye, as Hawkeye has expressed a desire to do. He then turns to look at it with the [[SmugSnake smuggest most shit-eating smirk imaginable on his face.]] [[spoiler:And then the explosive tip detonates in his face, throwing him through a window into Stark Tower and setting the stage for a truly epic (and hilarious) CurbStompBattle at the hands of The Hulk.]]

* Parrying an arrow is a skill [[TheWitcher witchers]] are known for. [[MasterSwordsman Geralt]] at one point managed to parry two arrows at once, but his success came to him as a genuine surprise.

** In the fifth book, he catches a regular arrow.



* In a ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' strip from long ago, Charlie Brown is trying to play fetch with Snoopy using a bow and (suction-cup-tipped) arrow: as explained by Charlie Brown, he will shoot the arrow and Snoopy will run to where it landed and fetch it back. Snoopy doesn't feel like expending the running energy though, so he just catches the arrow with his mouth right after Charlie Brown shoots it. (Snoopy is standing right next to CB at the time, so the arrow has only been shot about a foot before Snoopy catches it.)
