* In the Warhammer 40000 roleplaying game ''TabletopGame/DarkHeresy'' psykers can perform a power, which was clearly inspired by Matrix: For one round of combat a number of hits (depending on the willpower of the psyker) from projectiles are ignored, as they stop in their tracks and once the power stops fall to the ground. This has the problem that in game there are a lot of non-projectile weapons. Especially laser weapons are some of the most common weapons found in the setting.

* A 1980s ''ComicBook/XMen'' story about a group of anti-mutant bigots who discover Xavier's secret and try to murder him culminates in dueling examples of this. After their plot is thwarted, one of the villains tries to shoot ComicBook/RachelSummers, who uses her telekinesis to grab the bullet and redirect it at the shooter. Then the bullet freezes just in front of his head, having been caught by SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}, who refuses to let Rachel become a murderer like himself. The bullet just hovers in front of the now-terrified assassin's face while they push against each other, until Magneto manages to talk Rachel down.

* ''Series/DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'': When Bart gets shot, the shooter misses with every round in his chamber through a series of bizarre coincidences; Bart stumbles to the side at the right millisecond, bends down to scratch her shoe, so on. When Ken asks if she dodged the bullets, she just says "the bullets dodged me," and that she is a universal constant, like gravity. Then she reloads the gun, presses it to her forehead, and pulls the trigger to no effect. And just to underline the point, she fires a round off into the trees, then tries to shoot herself again, and repeats until the gun is empty.

* In Season 2 of ''{{Series/Continuum}}'' it's established that Kiera's futuristic suit, as well as being bulletproof, can project a sort of electromagnetic force field that deflects bullets away from her general vicinity. This allows both herself and Carlos to flee from a firefight unharmed, although the implausibility of all the bullets missing them doesn't go unnoticed.
* ''{{Series/Andromeda}}'': Conventional technology is the Electronic Countermeasure Generator (ECM), often woven into clothing. It deflects the smart bullets also used in that setting.

* In ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', Eldar Farseers do this through their Rune Armor; they channel their powers through their armor to alter fate in such a manner as to not get hit by even bolter rounds. Tabletop-wise, this means they don't have much in terms of an actual Armor Save, but they '''do''' get a rather good Invulnerable Save.
