* An InvokedTrope in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Batman fires a 40mm grenade at Superman, only for the Man of Steel to grab it in front of his face. [[spoiler:Meaning it's at exactly the right distance when it explodes, giving Superman a faceful of Kryptonite gas. So this was likely a literal BatmanGambit by the firer.]]

* [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/81/ This]] ''Blog/WhatIf'' article explains that this trope ''might'' be possible, provided you shoot the bullet upwards so that the bullet stops mid-air, and have a friend catch it there by flying with a hot-air balloon or something. DontTryThisAtHome, though; the falling bullet is ''dangerous'' if you fail to catch it.

* 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.
