Yes, it's Unify, not Unite. The Guyzoch members use Unify Morphs.

* ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'': The Unify Naginata deflects projectiles when spun, which is also the only attack with that particular weapon. Said deflectable projectiles range from drill-like cells to bullets from a HumongousMecha.

Wrong information
This ''may'' be TruthInTelevision. Sort of. A few hundred years ago, when bows were the norm rather than guns, there were martial artists who claimed that they could spin a staff fast enough to deflect arrows. [[RealityIsUnrealistic Sounds plausible]]![[note]]An arrow is about a foot long, so to block one reliably, the staff has to complete half a revolution/second for each foot/second of speed the arrow has. Even at a mere 20 f/s (a sprinter could outrun the arrow at that speed), that's 10 rev/s... hard to pull off. A medieval-style longbow can fire at 180 f/s, requiring 90 rev/s. If you could spin a staff ''half'' that fast, you could stick airfoils on it and become a human helicopter. To its credit, rotating slower would still provide a better defense than just holding a weapon steady, though not nearly to the degree that it's most commonly depicted.[[/note]]

* In ''[[VideoGame/SpyroTheDragon Spyro: Year of the Dragon]]'', Bentley the Yeti can spin his club to deflect projectiles; it's not particularly helpful against enemies, but it does help you solve a few puzzles.

*** In the second season, the grunts have shields ''with'' Defense Rods, but since TheFederation has gained access to GN particle technology by this point, the rods have the added benefit of generating a circular particle field for additional defense on top of everything else.

* The ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' series use this quite a bit, and is semi-plausible because they're HumongousMecha.[[note]]If by semi-plausible you mean even less plausible than for a human. The larger an object is the more difficult it is to get it moving at high velocity, and larger objects have to move even faster than smaller objects to cover the same arc distance. Oh and the more prone to catastrophic failure it becomes due to increased stresses.[[/note]]
