* Not exactly a boomerang, but in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', in a last ditch effort to beat Hiei, Yusuke goad him into the path of a point blank [[KiBlast Reigun]] shot. It would have hit any other opponent, but Hiei manages to use his extreme speed to get out of the way. He then takes the time to gloat about how Yusuke was almost good enough, only to be hit in the back by the return shot a few seconds later; as it turns out, Yusuke figured Hiei would dodge, so he positioned himself so the shot would hit the Mirror of Darkness behind him and ricochet back when Hiei wasn't paying attention. Good thing it worked, too. Because if his shots ''didn't'' work that way, he had no other plans left.

* One episode of ''Series/{{Blackadder}} II'' has Edmund giving a boomerang to the Queen as a present from his expedition around the world. She's unimpressed by it, and tells Percy to throw it away. He lightly tosses it out the door behind him, and a few seconds later, it miraculously emerges to strike Percy on the head. (Which, of course, amuses the Queen immensely.)

It's also exaggerated for comedy, since Percy lightly lobbed the boomerang out the door and yet it returned with enough force to knock him down.

* ''When the Eds come across a cursed boomerang in an episode of WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', they eventually manage to throw it into the distance. It comes right back with enough force to pin them all to a tree branch. Interestingly, it was the first point in the episode where the boomerang actually returned to the thrower at all.

Arthur's Scythe Toss behaves similarly to it, as does Trish and Vergil's Round Trip, although theirs are slower.
* In ''Videogame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime'', Bloomerang's projectiles can hit enemies on the first go and the return for double damage.
