*** Unsurprisingly, Barry and other speedsters either dodge or catch a ''lot'' of bullets. The first time Barry has to do so, it's a surprise attack from behind and the bullet breaks the skin of his neck before he can stop it. He gets better at it as the show goes on and he keeps improving on his speed.

* On ''Series/{{LoisAndClark}}'', this was Superman's preferred response to bullets, ''rather than'' showing off his classic ImmuneToBullets. (Actually more justified, since it avoided ricochet damage to bystanders.)

* On ''Series/{{LoisAndClark}}'', ''Series/LoisAndClark'', this was Superman's preferred response to bullets, ''rather than'' showing off his classic ImmuneToBullets. (Actually more justified, since it avoided ricochet damage to bystanders.)) Early on, he successfully intimidated Lex Luthor by firing a gun at him and catching the bullet before it hit him.



* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', the [[BarehandedBladeBlock Blade Grasp]] ability lets you do this due to a bug. The developers decided it was a {{Good Bad Bug|s}}, and it was kept as an AscendedGlitch in the rerelease while other bugs (like the infinite JP glitch) were fixed.

* In ''VideoGame/{{killer7}}'' MASK de Smith does not ''catch'' the bullet. Oh no. He ''[[UseYourHead headbutts it out of thin air]].'' And he ''wins.'' He isn't ''even'' MadeOfIron. He's made out of freakin' ''adamantium.''

* Possible in [[GameEngine Source engine games]], but ''much'' easier to do in VideoGame/GarrysMod. You just need to install a BulletTime addon and a hostile NPC with a non-{{hitscan}} weapon.

* A classic stage magician's gag is appearing to catch a bullet, usually in the teeth (Hans Moretti used to do it sometimes) or on a china plate (Chung Ling Soo died when this went wrong). Paul Daniels recreated the effect safely in the '80s, and PennAndTeller upped the stakes to a simultaneous double bullet-catch during their run at the Rio. [[spoiler:The principal method was to retrieve the bullet from the barrel using a trick ramrod, after the bullet had been marked in some way. Anyone familiar with UsefulNotes/GunSafety will spot immediately that just because you have removed the bullet does not actually make the weapon ''safe'' - any debris that happens to be left in the barrel is still entirely capable of being lethal. However, most of the weapons used in the tricks are pyrotechnic models, not capable of firing a real bullet even if one was inserted.]]

* In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', Quicksilver doesn't so much catch the bullets as push them out of the way with his finger, so they all miss the other mutants when he exits BulletTime. That's after putting on his goggles, cranking up "If I Could Save Time in a Bottle" on his Walkman, rearranging the shooters so that they all knock each other out, and sampling some spilled soup that is hanging in midair. Quicksilver is just that fast.
