** They also did it in ''Series/TheFlash1990''. In one episode, a scientist cloned The Flash. When someone tried to shoot it, the clone caught the bullet and threw it back at the shooter, killing him.

** They also did it in ''Series/TheFlash1990''. In one episode, a scientist cloned The Flash. When someone tried to shoot it, the clone caught the bullet and threw it back at the shooter, killing him. In another, Barry caught several bullets fired at him from a car speeding toward him, and then threw them back, blowing out the car's tires.

* ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'''s "Return to Sender" vigor allows the user to absorb projectiles and launch them (or at least their pent-up kinetic energy) at other targets.
* In ''VideoGame/BioShock2'''s online, one of the uses of telekinesis can be used to grab grenades shot by a launcher to fire it back at whoever shot it. This is also one of the reasons not to use the homing missile upgrade for the said weapon, because the item moves slower, making this much easier to catch.

* Winter, of ''{{Stormwatch}}'', did this with a lot of bullets from a gatling cannon (or two), thanks to his ability to absorb energy (kinetic in this case), then re-apply it in his chosen direction.

* The title character of ''{{Devilman}}'' manages to catch a whole ''tree'' telekinetikally flung at him and fling it back at the flinger. But then, he is the (literally) goddamn Devilman!

* ''HistorysStrongestDiscipleKenichi'' turns this trope UpToEleven in [[WarriorPoet Akisame's]] fight with Alexander Gaidar. Gaidar throws [[http://www.onemanga.com/Historys_Strongest_Disciple_Kenichi/274/11/ an enormous bundle of rebar]] at Akisame. Akisame hurls it back at Gaidar and hits a steel girder, causing the bundle to split and the rebar to rain down on Gaidar. Gaidar uses it to [[http://www.onemanga.com/Historys_Strongest_Disciple_Kenichi/274/14/ make a pretty sculpture]], which he [[http://www.onemanga.com/Historys_Strongest_Disciple_Kenichi/274/15/ hurls at Akisame]], who catches it, [[http://www.onemanga.com/Historys_Strongest_Disciple_Kenichi/274/16-17/ reconstructs it into his own sculpture, and hurls it back]]. On second thought, UpToEleven [[SerialEscalation isn't far enough]].

* In ''Manga/HokutoNoKen'', the protagonist Kenshiro does this fairly often... usually using just two fingers. The technique in question is known as ''Nishi Shinkuu Ha''. It's so typical of Kenshiro and other Hokuto practitioners to do so that the ''only'' time it didn't happen it was when Raoh (another Hokuto practitioner) got an arrow in the leg while ''on a horse, mid-air and fighting Kenshiro to the death''. He later proceeds to casually send another arrow back when he's on the ground and off his horse while ''still'' in a fight to the death.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'', it's possible with proper timing, to catch a thrown item by pressing A just before you are hit, which makes it possible to use this trope.

You might not even realize you did it if things got particularly hectic until you see "Item Catcher" and "Reciprocator" among the achievements in the match.
