* Used by the Galbadian cruise missiles in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', which perform an exaggerated popup attack. Which gives their target time to get away! [[spoiler:Justified, since Selphie and two other party members you send with her went to the launch base specifically with the intent to sabotage the missile launch, including setting them to be as inaccurate as possible and doing what they can to delay the missile's launch. While Squall and the others went back home to warn Balamb Garden about the impending attack.]]

* In the earlier issues of ImageComics' ''ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}'', Flashpoint (one of the members of Stormwatch Prime) also had the ability to control the direction and intensity of his eye blasts. It was ''very'' cool. Too bad the character was a prime {{Jerkass}} and TheMole (actually, all three members of Stormwatch Prime were moles, but he was the only one who enjoyed it and stayed evil. He [[KarmicDeath got his in the end]], too.)

* Occurs pretty frequently in the {{DCAU}}. In one episode, they were lasers [[RuleOfCool fired out of a disco ball]]. In both ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' and ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Darkseid shows off his zig-zagging Omega Beams mentioned in the comics section.

** The latest variant of the Sidewinder, the AIM-9X, has an ability to be aimed via a helmet-mounted sight and obtain lock-ons from almost 90 degrees off the direction of the firing fighter's nose. Furthermore, it can robotech a full 180 degrees off its rail to pursue a target. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4g4_jzqBJnA Check it out here.]]
** The Russian [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vympel_R-73 Vympel R-73/AA-11 Archer]] is also aimed by a helmet-mounted sight, can can "see" targets up to 60° off the missile's centerline - and entered service 18 years earlier. After NATO learned about the capabilities of this missile, development of the AIM-9X, the IRIS-T and others was started.
*** The Archer doesn't quite have the same ability to dog a target from hilariously unlikely angles as the -9X, that said. But again--18 years earlier that said the current version in active service is capable of 75° off centerline with plans for new models to match or exceed the 180 of the AIM-9X.

** Pretty much the point of guided weapons ''period.''Thrust vectoring and hover/loiter capabilities on newer missile designs will most certainly take future ordnance in this direction.

* StarFleetBattles either averts this or plays it straight, depending both on how many drones (missiles) are used, and how clever you are at utilizing the rules. (The rules require that drones always move towards their target at every opportunity, which limits Roboteching. However, if there are a lot of drones, there's a number of tactics involving small, transporter-layed mines that can really spoil your day that Roboteching can seriously blunt.)

* In [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure]], the "cowboy" [[CasanovaWannabe Hol Horse]] has the Emperor , a [[BlingBlingBang stylish]] [[RevolversAreJustBetter revolver]] that let's Hol robotech his bullets mid-flight. It helps that Emperor is a [[FightingSpirit Stand]], rather than an actual revolver.
