** 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."

* During WorldWarOne, the cruiser USS ''Vesuvius'' was struck by a torpedo she launched during a weapons test, due to the aforementioned "swimming in a circle" issue. Due to some swift DamageControl, ''Vesuvius'' was saved from sinking due to this. It is with good reason that American torpedoes through some time in WorldWarTwo have a reputation as [[ReliablyUnreliableGuns being rather unreliable or possibly dangerous to their users]].

* 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.
