* Happens regularly in the ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' manga. It's pretty much amongst the basic abilities of martial artists, even the less skilled ones. To the point the arrows are rarely aiming at hurting; more often than not, it's an ArrowGram... still aimed straight at the martial artist's head.



* TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' includes the skill "Parry Missile Weapon", which can be used to catch spears or arrows instead, at a considerable penalty.

** 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.

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

* In ''MaybeImALion'', it's apparently a standard magus test of the reflexes of supernaturally empowered beings to have them catch a bolt shot from a crossbow; the shaft is banded in color, and the score determined by where they grasped it. Lio asks if he gets bonus points for catching it in his teeth. (Lio is somewhat beyond the ordinary parameters of the test.)
