* In ''Film/TheMatrix'' Neo stops bullets in mid-air simply by holding up his hand. Plucking one of the frozen bullets out of the air afterwards and casually dropping it on the floor only adds to the [[RuleOfCool coolness factor]].

Justified because he does it within the Matrix, which is a VirtualReality, in which he has superpowers due to the programming.

* The anime version of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' (although, since even Bronze Saints move at the speed of sound, it's implied they can do it there, too.) Namely: when being shot at with a machine gun, [[AnIcePerson Hyoga]] merely walks towards his assailant as his [[BattleAura Cosmo]] deflects the bullets. But then, when ''Seiya'' is shot at, he catches each and every bullet in his hands, freaking out the enemy when he drops them on the ground. Which of the two is more {{Badass}} is up to debate.

This is a topic which brooks no serious debate. Anyone who can actually catch a bullet has to be pretty amazing. We're talking about something which has the ability to cause death to any normal person (well, in RealLife anyway), and here somebody just grabs it mid-air. How unbelievably [[RuleOfCool cool]] is that?

* 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.]]

* Logically, catching a bullet with your bare hands is impossible. If a bullet can puncture something as dense as your skull, what hope do your hands have in stopping one?

** Snatching bullets out of the air is a standard tactic of pretty much all of the speedsters in the Franchise/TheFlash{{DCU}}.

* [[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.
