* Done in ''{{Vandread}}'' with any kind of missile spam. The ''Nirvana'' does this with energy shots that can ''dodge friendly vehicles'' when properly targeted on the way to the enemy. An extreme example of gravitational lensing perhaps, although given the abilities of the shows Applied Phlebotinum, the Pixis, it could easily not have even a dubious scientific explanation. Then again, the standard guns of the Dread fighters display a more limited, but similar, principle.

{{Subtrope}} of HomingProjectile. When lasers do this, it's HomingLasers. See also MagicMissileStorm, which is likely to involve this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* For some inexplicable reason, all capital ship-mounted laser weapons in ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' fire beams that curve sharply just after leaving the barrel. [[AMechByAnyOtherName Ryder]]-scale lasers are the only ones that fire in a straight line. Missiles, by contrast, do ''not'' do this: they either fire in straight lines or in shallow arcs.

* 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.]]
