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.

* Occurs in ''Captain America II: Death Too Soon'', a made-for-TV film from 1979 starring Reb Brown as ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, where the Captain foils a mugging attempt by tossing his trademark shield at a perpetrator, missing him at point-blank range, and the thug gives his shield enough time to curve back and knock himself out.

This show-off stunt immediately bites the Suicide Squad in the butt; the boomerang alerted the guard, who had time to raise an alarm before it actually hit him.

** In the [[Recap/DeathBattleS02E11CaptainAmericaVsBatman "Captain America vs. Batman"]] match, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's nails Franchise/{{Batman}} behind the head with his shield by ricocheting it against a wall. Though it is just the warm-up phase.
** In [[Recap/DeathBattleS02E24DarthVaderVsDoctorDoom "Darth Vader vs. Doctor Doom"]], toward the end of the fight, Darth Vader throws his lightsaber at Doctor Doom, who easily sidestep it. Later, though, guided by the Force, the lightsaber hits Doctor Doom in the back mid-gloating.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'': How Captain Boomerang takes out one of ''WesternAnimation/ZigAndSharko'': After Zig tries to take off carrying Marina (again), Sharko (after a big sigh) lazily throws a banana at him. Zig laughs it off as the guards on banana flies past, expecting a failed attempt at the tower: sending BananaPeel gag. Instead, the banana twists around like a boomerang past him to hit him on its return.and hits Zig in the face.

* In ''Series/{{Blackadder}} II'', Blackadder and his minions return from being lost at sea, having discovered [[UsefulNotes/Australia a bizarre new land]]. Unfortunately, the Queen doesn't like the "stick" Edmund brought her and orders Percy to get rid of it. Percy half-heartedly lobs it out the door and a few moments later it comes back and whacks him in the head, at which point Queenie decides she loves it.

* A very real problem in any ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' game with the green shell. Miss your target and it's just as likely to come back and hit you.

* ''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.
