* In ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', 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.

At the extreme end of the scale, Kenshiro once caught an entire battalion's worth of arrows and returned them in a single motion...killing every single man who fired on him with a precise headshot between the eyes.

--->'''[[WebAnimation/DeathBattle Boomstick]]''': Sure, Vergil could [[StatingTheSimpleSolution easily avoid Dante's bullets]], [[RuleOfCool but why dodge them]] when you can spin your sword, line 'em all up and fire 'em back? ''Like a boss''.

* Also happens in ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'', in Gem and Gemma's debut battle.

* Much later, in ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue'', the Lightspeed Solarzord can absorb attacks aimed at it and use it to fuel its' AlphaStrike (where it blasts the crap out of a target using its' multitude of cannons and blasters)- as [[TheDragon Diabolico]] found out [[ThisCannotBe to his shock]].

** An old (and certainly not recommended or taught) trick with older style grenades was pulling the pin and releasing the spoon, letting it "cook" for a second, and then throwing it, based on the theory that there'd be less time for the enemy to try and throw it back. Nice theory, not so much in practice.

* An extremely satisfying method of disposing of Hunters in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}: Episode Two'' involves picking a bulky object up with your Gravity Gun, using it as a shield against Hunter's antimatter flechettes, then smashing the Hunter hard with the object ''and'' flechettes lodged in it, causing annihilation. You even get an achievement for doing this.

* Though [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Shen]] is not exactly unarmed, he does make a great example in ''FanFic/TheVow''. A knife is thrown at his chest when he's in a crouching position, but [[JustifiedTrope having trained to be able to counter that move]] [[CrazyPrepared no matter the cost]], he strikes the knife with his Iron Claws, catches it with his feathers and immediately throws it back, [[PinnedToTheWall pinning his opponent to the ground]].

* A ''very'' common joke told by soldiers: "What do you do if [insert enemy soldier here] throws a grenade at you? Catch it, pull the pin, and throw it back."

* In ''Anime/{{Xabungle}}'', the eponymous mech is used to catch and throw back an ICBM launched at the protagonists. The whole thing is highly implausible, but then again this show [[RuleOfFunny doesn't take itself seriously at all]].

* There are two ways of defeating enemies in ''{{Solatorobo}}'': You can grab them bodily and hurl them at enemies/the ground, or wait for them to shoot a PainfullySlowProjectile and sling it right back at them.
