* In the ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' (not to be confused with the above series) episode "Cat and Mouse", Anakin defeats Separatist [[TheDreaded Admiral Trench]] - who has a history of taking out cloaked starships by having missiles lock onto their magnetic signature - by provoking the Admiral into firing another round of missiles at his [[CallForward unusually]] [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack small]] stealth ship, redistributes the ship's power for maximum engine speed and luring the missiles right into the command bridge of Trench's dreadnought while its shields are still recharging and defenseless. As Anakin's ship speeds right towards the bridge, [[OhCrap Trench figures out too late exactly what he's trying to do]] and tries to get the shield back up in vain.

* In the ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'' animated short "The Battle Begins" the pilot of the Androsa boss launches a volley of guided missiles at Fox's Arwing. Fox manages to dodge and shoot down three of the missiles before boosting ahead of the last one. He then manages to trick that missile into destroying Androsa's main laser canon by flying past it while it's firing.

* In ''StarWarsCloneWars'', Anakin tells his clonetrooper pilots to fire all their missiles across the bow of the destroyer he's flying past. About half of the missiles destroy the droid starfighters pursuing Anakin; the other half start following Anakin, who then leads them into the open hangar of the Confederacy carrier.

** Japanese pilot Sakio Komatsu earned himself a place in both Japanese and US history books when he crashed his divebomber to detonate a Mark 14 fired at his carrier, the ''Taiho''. He might not have gotten credit for it except for the fact that several hundred people saw it happen; it wasn't until about 1950 that US interrogators were actually satisfied it was true.

** Japanese pilot Sakio Komatsu earned himself a place in both Japanese and US history books when he crashed his divebomber to detonate a intercepted one of six Mark 14 torpedoes fired by USS ''Albacore'' at his carrier, the ''Taiho''.''Taihou'', with his own aircraft. He might not have gotten credit for it except for the fact that several hundred people saw it happen; it wasn't until about 1950 that US interrogators were actually satisfied it was true. This would turn out to be a ShaggyDogStory anyway. Of the 5 remaining torpedoes, 4 missed, and the last one hit the carrier and ruptured a tank of aviation-grade gasoline for the carrier's aircraft. The fumes from the gasoline later ignited and the resultant explosion sunk the carrier.

The AcePilot either has the skills to blow it up or a plan (well, [[IndyPloy more like on the spot improvising]]) to destroy or escape from the missile. Usually by [[HighSpeedMissileDodge deftly dodging]] [[WronskiFeint and making it hit a cliff or asteroid]], just plain letting it hit his plane but using an EjectionSeat beforehand, or best of all, leading it back to the launcher! If he's being chased by the MacrossMissileMassacre, then expect his new target to go "OhCrap".
