* In ''VideoGame/Gamer2'''s streets level, Hailey will find her way blocked by a tall fence, and a faraway police officer will repeatedly call airstrikes on her position. To progress, she needs to stand near the fence, wait for an airstrike to be called in, then escape the blast radius in the few split seconds between the missile appearing on screen and destroying the fence.

* The Master Chief in ''Literature/HaloTheFallOfReach'' does this when when testing the new MJOLNIR Mark V armor, by slapping the missile aside just before it hit him. No, his armor and physical augmentations don't give him reflexes ''that'' ridiculous: his AI Cortana handled the timing. He wasn't completely undamaged by the missile's explosion, though.

* ''Literature/HaloTheFallOfReach'':
** Part of the famed "Keyes Loop" maneuver involves dodging homing plasma torpedos and [[DeadlyDodging having them hit an enemy ship instead]]. The book emphasizes that Keyes came up with the maneuver out of desperation against a vastly superior force, and Keyes himself notes that he would have failed any student who suggested the idea to him in class.

*** It's commonly thought (and was originally reported on this wiki) that the pilot mainly avoided the missiles using his ECM and countermeasures. However, [[http://www.airforcemag.com/MagazineArchive/Documents/2016/January%202016/0116packageq.pdf this article in the Air Force Magazine]] recounts that when Tulia returned to base, he discovered his countermeasures ''failed to deploy.'' He got through that storm of missiles ''through sheer piloting skill'' '''''alone.''''' What's more, Tulia did not have enough fuel at that point to gain airspeed to dodge the missiles properly and still return to base--he had to dodge those missiles using only "military power," that is, the maximum possible thrust from the engines without using afterburners.

Suffice to say, Major Tulia's performance that day has since been part of the curriculum at the Air Force Academy.

Twelve American F-16 fighters were on a bombing mission north of Baghdad, but ran into a MacrossMissileMassacre of surface-to-air missiles ([=SAMs=]). The pilot in this video, Major Emmett "E.T." Tulia, winds up dodging ''six'' [=SAMs=]. Two of his fellow pilots, however, were shot down. A written account of this incident [[http://www.lucky-devils.net/afm.html can be found here]], in the section labeled Day Three.

* Pilots performing "Suppression of Enemy Air Defense" duties get to know this tactic very well. In the US Air Force it's termed "{{Wild Weasel}}," but no matter what it's called it's a deadly game of flashlight tag--just with radar and missiles as the flashlights. SEAD crews ''must'' know how to dodge missiles to maximize their chances of survival.

* ''AceOnline'' has the Idle Sniper I-Gear, the fighter type Gear that can outrun most missiles from levels as low as 40-50. I-Gear top speed= 500 (before lvl 86), most missile top speed=450. Enter Episode 3 and the [[OhCrap introduction of Speed Card missile upgrades]]. Now most I-Gear pilots rely not only on pure high speed, but also a healthy dose of WronskiFeint and barrel rolls. Any I-Gear that manages to hit 94 however, will still be able to outrun most missiles except highly customized ones.

** The patch worn by the Wild Weasel aircrews showed a terrified weasel, with their slogan printed [[FunWithAcronyms in acronym form]]: YGBSM: '''Y'''ou've '''G'''otta '''B'''e '''S'''hittin' '''M'''e!, the [[OhCrap reaction]] most crews had when [[GenreSavvy informed of their new mission]]. In fact, the phrase was first coined by a former B-52 electronic warfare officer when he was told that he would be the GuyInBack to a [[TheAce self-absorbed fighter pilot]] while purposely exposing themselves to enemy SAM sites in order to destroy them.

** In the VF-21's initial test run in ''Anime/MacrossPlus'', a truly enormous swarm of self-guided decoy missiles is shot at it to display its maneuvering capabilities. Since the YF-21 is controlled via neural link, Guld merely has to plot the missiles' individual trajectories and ''think'' his way through the gaps in a massively complex vector. Ironically, when he [[spoiler: shoots an impenetrable wall of real missiles at Isamu, the latter merely shuts off his engines, drops some countermeasures for the missiles to hit, and glides peacefully above the ensuing inferno.]]
*** They even comment on the proximity fuses of the missiles and wonder why they have not detonated as the YF-21 is dodging them. It seems the YF-21 is traveling too fast for the triggers to engage.
