* A lot of ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' critical hit animations have the character throw their weapon or shield in the air, make a jumping attack, and catch it on the way down. [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]] is particularly known for this -- his trademark Aether move involves him throwing his sword up and jumping after it -- and it even carries into his ''SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' moveset.

* Gambit in ''MarvelVsCapcom2'' (and some Capcom-made Marvel fighting games before that) has the move Royal Flush where he throws his staff up, then unloads his cards at the enemy, then he catches the staff back and flicks a figer, making the cards explode.[[/folder]]

* In the live-action ''Series/TheFlash'' show, The Flash uses this to fight the Trickster. He grabs a bunch of juggler's clubs, throws them in the direction of the Trickster, then runs the other side of him, catches the clubs and throws them back, and repeating. The Trickster is trapped in a circle of rapidly moving Flash and flying clubs until one of the clubs hits him on the head and knocks him out.

* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', Sōsuke is carrying Kaname in one hand of his HumongousMecha and Kurz in the other, while being pursued by enemy gunships. As one closes in, he throws Kaname into the air, draws his gun, blows up the helicopter, discards the gun, and catches her -- all in one smooth motion. Somewhat atypically for the "toss a person" variant used in this and several other listed examples, Kaname is knocked unconscious by Sōsuke's stunt.

Kurz muses that [[{{Tsundere}} it might not be a good idea for them to be around when she wakes up]].

* One of the moves from the [[GunsAkimbo Dual Pistols]] power set in ''CityOfHeroes'' involves tossing your pistols in the air, catching them, and "punching" them forward. This serves no purpose other than RuleOfCool, but then, so is most of that power set.

* In the pilot of ''Series/BionicWoman'', Jaime knocks a switchblade from a mugger's hand, takes him down with some martial arts moves then catches the knife as it falls. That's when she realises she's been programmed as a SuperSoldier.

* Western film "My Name is Nobody" has the gunslinger, who is carrying his saddle by the pommel over his shoulder, let go of the pommel and then draw and reholster with that hand three times before again grabbing the saddle, which hasn't had time to drop below his shoulder. Perhaps trick photography?

* Also in ''BatmanReturns'', where it's a special case in that the objects being juggled ''are'' the weapons. Two men on stilts with heavily scarred faces toss flaming sticks back and forth during a gang-style riot - in the process burning the clothes of terrified bystanders rushing past.
