* Laser beams do this in ''Anime/GallForce'', arcing away from the ship at an angle before tracking towards the intended target.

** This also occurs in the anime ''Anime/GallForce'', although the "lasers" may actually be cheaply-animated missiles.
*** No, their missiles Roboteched the traditional way. Those were definitely beams. You could even see them tearing through the ships they hit.

* Some ground attack planes in the ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' series do an interesting variation of this; They fly straight out from the aircraft normally, but instead of proceeding directly to their target they will instead track towards it while maintaining altitude....and then diving down on the target from above. This can be helpful, such as in the case of shooting a target surrounded by walls, or a hindrance if trying to hit something underneath overhanging cover, such as an overpass.

** The CFA-44 Nosferatu's All Direction Multi-Purpose Missiles play this trope completely straight, launching out like countermeasure flares before suddenly turning towards whatever it is locked on to and closing in for the kill.

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'': Several weapons can do this naturally, like the ''Razorblade Typhoon'', and some others can do this using special ammo.

* In ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'', Shigure managed to pull this off with [[RuleOfCool shuriken]]!

* 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.

trope. When an unguided projectile does this because a game engine assumes attacks always hit, it's HomingBoulders.

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.

* This submarine-based [[http://imgur.com/oVKZ4ku missile launch]] is cool looking for a great many reasons, one being the amazing engineering tech behind it.
