* One of EI-01 (Pasdar)'s attacks in ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' was a laser than could reflect off particles in the air to hit the heroes from multiple angles. In ''[=GaoGaiGar=] FINAL'', [=TenRyuJin=] copies the attack, using missiles to scatter hundreds of reflective (and apparently ''refractive'') mirrors, then calculating the angles on the fly to strike the enemy from multiple angles at once. (Pasdar had ''Tokyo's electrical output and computing power'' to make this all work - [=TenRyuJin=] complains about how hard the calculations are when she does it.)

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/AdvancedDungeonsAndDragons'', the Lightning Bolt spell functioned like this. Due to a mixture of the excessive complexity needed to figure out how the ricochets went along with the fact that it virtually insured that it was impossible to cast in confined spaces (like your typical dungeon) without massive friendly fire, it was widely viewed as a ScrappyMechanic and removed when Third Edition was released.


Added DiffLines:

* While not actually a laser, the Lightning Bolt spell in Infinity Engine titles ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'', ''VideoGame/BaldursGate2'', and ''VideoGame/IcewindDale'' functions like this. Which typically means that it will hit an enemy, bounce off a wall, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard then return and hit your party a few times]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/RobotJox''. In the GladiatorGames between two HumongousMecha, one deflects a laser fired by the other with a mirror attached to his robot's arm.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Quark}}''. Quark is given a rock-crystal necklace that he's told will make him invincible. He doesn't quite believe it until a guard fires a DisintegratorRay at him, only to be killed when the beam reflects off the crystal and disintegrates the guard. Unfortunately this gives Quark false confidence because the crystal really doesn't have any special powers; it was just an example of this trope.

* In ''{{U|pdatedReRelease}}ltimate [[CapcomVsWhatever Marvel vs. Capcom]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 3]]'', [[StreetFighter Ryu's]] [[KamehameHadouken Shinku Hadouken]] is aimable and now reflects off of the side of the stage. Even when there's [[FridgeLogic nothing there to reflect it.]]

* The Beam Rifle in ''Franchsie/{{Halo}}'' is capable of doing this; in fact, it's possible to (accidentally) kill multiple enemies with a single shot.
