* Missile-to-missile version in ''Film/TheReturnOfGodzilla'', a Japanese ground-launched missile is sent to intercept an incoming Russian space-launched thermonuclear missile. It succeeds, but the radiation cloud created revives an unconscious Godzilla.

* A less-ridiculous-than-usual variant in Seven Deadly Wonders by Creator/MatthewReilly; Stretch, the team sniper, covers allies against incoming RPG rounds by shooting them out of the air with a sniper rifle. RPG rounds, of course, are much bigger and slower than bullets. So it's less ridiculous than usual. Kind of.

* Not quite bullets, but in many {{fighting game}}s projectiles will cancel each other out--your Hadouken can knock down your enemy's Sonic Boom in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', while flaming paper fans in ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown 2'' will knock away a summonned demon.

* a common UrbanLegend of the cowboy type is of the "Third Gunman" or "Ghost Gunman" depending on who's telling the tale. The story goes that two gunmen went out to "slap leather" at high noon over a dispute over who was the faster gunman. Both men drew and fired, and to the confusion of all, both men missed, while a ''third'' gunshot rang out between them. As the story goes, the men discovered their bullets had hit each other in mid air. This led both men to drop their feud.

* Kinji from ''LightNovel/HidanNoAria'' does this in the final episode to ''redirect an ally's bullet to hit a different target''. Using it to parry bullets aimed for him becomes a virtual trademark of his in the light novels.

** It's also worth mentioning that after shooting down one bullet ([[CombatPragmatist the MOTW tried to land a cheap shot]]), the MOTW accused it of being dumb luck and shot as many as he could at him. ''Marvelous shot every single bullet and didn't even flinch.''

* In ''[[Literature/TheMistbornAdventures The Alloy of Law]]'' [[TheGunslinger Wax]] confronts a villain who's holding a human shield in front of him, preventing Wax from getting a clean shot. So Wax fires a bullet a little to one side of the villain, then fires a ''second'' bullet that collides with the first, changing its trajectory so that it hits the villain from an angle that doesn't go through the hostage. Granted, [[TimeStandsStill time was slowed down]] [[BulletTime for Wax when this happened]], but ''[[ImprobableAimingSkills still!]]''
