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).

* 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.

* Used to introduce us to most of the titular dog's powers in the intro to Disney's ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'', Bolt grabs a magnetic landmine, and unintentionally gets a homing missile on his tail, which he runs away from, leading it back toward a different helicopter which he jumps over, but the missile hits home.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'' is a partial example - [[spoiler:the titular giant]] ''was'' the target, and he just escaped from the town to save ''it''. [[TearJerker He had no plan or intention to save himself.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheManCalledFlintstone'' has Fred and Barney reprogram the missile and then trick the villains inside the missile as it flies off into deep space.

* Done with absolutely no logic in a ''SecretSquirrel'' short, where Secret for some reason possesses a "Fire away then turn around and blow myself up missile."
