* ''VideoGame/{{Postal}} 2''[='s=] kicking allows you to kick thrown grenades back, but enemy AI cannot do this.

* ''VideoGame/{{Postal}} 2''[='s=] kicking allows you to kick thrown grenades back, but enemy AI cannot do this. Better yet? The player can also kick ''missiles'' away from them. It's actually a crucial element, since missiles and grenades can often kill you instantly, even at full health.

* On ''Series/MythBusters'', they explored several ways to deal with a nearby grenade, including throwing it in a bucket of water or into a fridge (as per the previous example). Most were ineffective but was shown that training soldiers to throw themselves on a grenade is in fact, an effective way to reduce casualties, since each grenade only kills one person, and the human body is a better shield against fragmentation grenades than most other common objects lying around on a battlefield.

* Stitch and Jumba in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' do this with a malfunctioning plasma gun. As they toss it back and forth, they actually say "One potato, two potato..."

* A variation happens in the second episode of ''Series/BandOfBrothers'': Buck Compton pulls the pin on a grenade and is about to throw it when it slips out of his hand. After bobbling it from hand to hand in an unsuccessful attempt to catch it, he calls "Grenade!" after which he and his squadmates bail out of the trench they were in until it detonates.

Except for Joe Toye. Toye, after already having an '''enemy grenade''' go off right next to him and survive. Fucking twice indeed.

* A ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode had the ''[[WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle Blocky and Oxwinkle]]'' parody. In one episode of that, Yuri and Svetlana (the Boris and Natasha look-alikes) plan to blow up the heroes with a time bomb.
-->'''Blocky''': Hey, Mister. You left your clock in the middle of the street. Good thing we conveniently showed up to return it to you before someone runs over it.\\

When an armed grenade lands in the general vicinity, there's just enough time for the heroes to [[CatchAndReturn pick it up and throw it]] back]] (extra points for [[HoistByHisOwnPetard blowing up the original thrower]]), pass it to someone else to deal with it (which leads to them realizing they've just been handed a live grenade and try to pass it onto someone else) or, in the more heroic fashion for when the clock is really low, [[JumpingOnAGrenade jump on it]].
