* 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.''

* Disney's ''Disney/RobinHood'' adaptation has one with arrows. In the archery competition, the sheriff has just scored a bullseye (by cheating). To make sure Robin (in disguise) can't win, the sheriff taps Robin's bow as he releases. The arrow goes in a high arc. Undaunted, Robin nocks another arrow and fires at the first arrow. It hits, changing its direction such that it too hits a perfect bullseye, ''right through the sheriff's arrow.''
* In ''WesternAnimation/DCShowcaseGreenArrow'', Green Arrow and Merlyn shoot simultaneous shots at each other. Green Arrow's arrow shatters Merlyn's, cuts his bowstring, slices his cheek and hits the wall behind him and releases a cloud of knockout gas.

* The field at the Battle of Gettysburg is apparently littered to this day with pairs of musket balls that impacted each other and fused together. There was basically no chance of this happening deliberately, so that so many musket balls managed to inadvertently shoot each other out of the air gives you some indication just how extreme the hail of gunfire from both sides must have been.

Examples of bullets fused by (accidental) head-on collision have been found on [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar American Civil War]] battlefields, so the idea in general is not impossible, just so improbable it requires two armies' worth of ammunition fired in massed, synchronized volleys to result in a few collisions. The idea of [[DestructibleProjectiles destroying projectiles]], however, is regularly used on a much bigger scale: [[MissileCommand anti-ballistic missiles]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YAL-1 lasers]] have been put into service for the purpose of destroying incoming nuclear missiles before they could detonate, and smaller variants exist for shooting down smaller projectiles like tactical missiles and artillery shells. [[UsefulNotes/TypesOfNavalShips Naval vessels]] now commonly make use of [[GatlingGood gatling-type]] [[UsefulNotes/NavalWeapons or other types of Close In Weapons Systems]] to defend themselves against low-flying aircraft and missiles (MoreDakka, it turns out, significantly increases your odds of successfully shooting the bullet), and are definitely not PointDefenseless. Tank-based systems are also being developed, as a counter to [=RPG=]s and anti-tank missiles.

* A standard part of [[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger DekaRed's]] fighting style.
* Captain Marv / [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger GokaiRed]] can do this too, and on at least one occasion (the Go-onger tribute) he wasn't even morphed.
** 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.''

* 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.
