* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'': The Paladin tank has a laser that shoots down enemy missiles. Problem is, the laser's rate of fire is slower than most missiles, so countering a MacrossMissileMAssacre requires BeamSpam. Base defenses will also try to shoot Scud issiles and the Chinese nuke, but they're onscreen for too little time for it to matter.

* Missiles in ''Videogame/MechWarrior'' can be shot down, but only by the automated (Laser) Anti-Missile System. In ''[=MechWarrior=] Living Legends'', the LAMS is an actual turret mounted on [[HumongousMecha battlemech's]] head which benefits from steady piloting, so staring down incoming missiles can increase the number shut down.

Compare PlayingTennisWithTheBoss, where attacks are used to deflect projectiles rather than destroy them. Contrast ShootTheBullet, in which this is an extraordinary MomentOfAwesome / CutscenePowerToTheMax feat instead of a normal gameplay mechanic.
