* While certainly not on purpose, a number of Civil War Minie balls have been found fused together from colliding in midair. Given the millions of bullets fired on both sides and the soft lead of the rounds, it was bound to happen a few times.

* A bow and arrow example, but in ''LightNovel/MadanNoOuToVanadis'', Tigre fires an arrow from 300 meters away, ''just to shoot down another arrow''.

* Although it does not involve fighting bullets with bullets, in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', the Pyro's [[KillItWithFire flamethrower]]'s alternate fire shoots out a gust of air that can deflect a soldier's fired rocket, bouncing it right back where it came from. This even works with the Sniper's arrows with fast enough reflexes. However, the Sniper's arrows can break if they hit another arrow. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UfrB49ViGI Or a rocket.]]

Certain heavy-bot variants can also pull this on the human's Soldiers and Demomen.

* DeathBattle does this to ridiculous extremes in the fight between Dead Pool and Deathstroke. The two of them meet at a bulletin board where their respective "wanted" poster are displayed, Dead Pool complaining that Deathstroke's bounty was higher, by a ridiculously minuscule amount. The moment they see each other, they whip out, and dual wield, sub-machine guns and start firing. ''Every single bullet from one collides with a bullet from the other, fusing and falling to the ground.''

* The ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' series has the ability "Shoot Down", created as a gun-based counterpart to [[ImplausibleFencingPowers "Sword Cut"]]; however, it only works on missiles, grenades, and {{Attack Drone}}s.

* 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.
