* G.rev's hybrid of ShootEmUp-[[XMeetsY meets]]-FightingGame series ''VideoGame/SenkoNoRonde'' features some mechs known as Rounders with homing laser weaponry (e.g. Changpo's Citronette or Lili's Brinstä), [[UpToEleven even moreso]] with certain [[SuperMode B.O.S.S.]] Shells and in-game bosses.

* Arguably one of the earliest of homing lasers in video games has to Creator/{{Taito}}'s ''[[VideoGame/RaySeries RAY Series]]'' starting with ''[=RayForce=]''. You (and a partner) take control of a SpaceFighter capable of firing multiple homing lasers at once. Some enemies and bosses can shoot homing lasers as well.

* ''VideoGame/CrimzonClover'' is pretty much ''[=RayForce=]'' as if it was made by Creator/{{CAVE}}. Specifically speaking, the Type-1 ship fires lasers whereas Type-2 fires [[MacrossMissileMassacre missiles]].

Added DiffLines:

* The player's robots in the ''VideoGame/ExZeus'' series are armed with homing missiles that can pull off some crazy twists and turns as they home-in on their target, sometimes even spiral their way to them.

[[AcceptableBreaksFromReality Who cares]] if they [[ArtisticLicensePhysics have no known or plausible way of steering]] and [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon don't possess the correct attributes to identify a target]]?! [[CrazyAwesome They make for some amazing action sequences]], [[RuleOfCool and that's all that matters]].

* Diffraction. With suitable initial conditions, a laser beam, defined as the zone of space where the intensity is above a certain level, can be shaped using diffraction gratings so that it takes an oscillating or spiralling path. More recently (2012), this was extended to potentially arbitrary technologies. ( https://www.osapublishing.org/ol/abstract.cfm?uri=ol-37-23-5003 )

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Twist can do it. As she says: “[[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/original-timeline/799-out-on-a-tether I can shoot these blasts of energy, and make them twist around and change directions in mid-air. In fact, that’s my codename. Twist]].”

** Frequent in the franchise, especially once DragonBall Z begins and the number of characters able to use energy blast-style attacks skyrockets. Somewhat more justified than most because the blasts are connected spiritually to the firer.
