* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'': Ryder uses such a tactic when attacking the kett armada at Meridian. While they have plenty of hacked Remnant warships backing them up, the kett still outgun them. So Ryder has the Remnant fly very close to the Scourge, that bizarre dark energy NegativeSpaceWedgie that homes in on Remnant technology, and thereby guides the Scourge tendrils to the kett ships and rips them apart. This works quite well and opens a hole for the ''Tempest'' to break through.

* Mao does [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixpnrbWvsa8&t=10m20s this]] to protect a helicopter full of refugees in the first episode of ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic The Second Raid''. Of course, it was justified that her AS is custom-equipped with electronic warfare equipment. Plus the fact that she did this with ARF missiles which also exist in real life; according to TheOtherWiki, they are specifically built in a way that if someone attempts to jam them, they lock onto the jammer instead(!).

* The entire first section of [[TrueFinalBoss The Doomsday Zone]] in [[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic & Knuckles/Sonic 3 & Knuckles]] consists of you doing this to Robotnik's ship with the homing missiles he fires at you.
* This is how you defeat Megaleg in VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy, by blowing out the HumongousMecha with its own Bullet Bills.
** And for the giant robot Malletoid in VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2, at least from the trailer, where you have to eat its own Bullet Bills with Yoshi and shoot them back at certain points on the robot.

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, [[StopHittingYourself leading it back to the launcher!]] If he's being chased by the MacrossMissileMassacre, then expect his new target to go "OhCrap".

* In ''SwordOfTheStars'', destroyers equipped with the Wild Weasel mission section can spoof enemy missiles into tracking it instead of the more valuable targets. Later patches/addons added the chance of some of these missiles returning "to sender" for a nasty surprise. In the latter case, the firing ship's [[PointDefenseless point-defense]] weapons will not intercept the returning missiles. The dreadnought Electronic Warfare command section does this along with two other important functions (sensor jamming and long-range scanning).

* Captain Jack "Heartbreak One" Bartlett took the missile away from Kei "Edge" Nagase's tail in the ''second'' mission of ''AceCombat 5''. [[spoiler: Bartlett got shot down and it isn't until the end of the game you get to see him again]]

* In the {{Marvel 2099}} sections of ''SpiderManShatteredDimensions'', it's possible to do this with the homing missiles fired by [[LawEnforcementInc Public Eye officers]]. You need to use [[BulletTime Accelerated Vision]], though.

** While largely impractical, this strategy can be re-enacted in the actual game, complete with the boss reacting the same way.
