* In ''Manga/DragonBall'' this often goes hand-and-hand with SuperSpeed. Master Roshi once caught machine gun bullets with his bare-hands and Goku himself caught a bullet out of the air on reflex, ''without even realizing it''. Having good reflexes also allows them to keep up with opponents who may have more raw speed. Although, like the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' example, if the speed difference of an opponent is high enough, none of the characters can move fast enough to avoid danger.

** ''Anime/DragonballSuper'' introduces a state that goes above and beyond the quick reflexes shown by the fighters, known as "Ultra Instinct". Someone in this state has their entire body reacting purely on instinct, with no conscious thought on their part. The result is movements so quick and precise that observers have a hard time telling that the user has even moved at all, and incoming attacks are dodged or blocked automatically even when the user themselves didn't see them coming. Even among the gods of the ''Dragonball'' multiverse, this is something extremely difficult to do, and even Beerus, the many millions of years old God of Destruction, hasn't managed to attain it. [[spoiler:In the Tournament of Power, Goku sporadically unlocks the state, but has difficulty controlling it due to the unconscious nature of his new movements, not to mention the stamina drain it apparently involves.]]

* Same thing with Cassandra Cain as ComicBook/{{Batgirl|2000}}, minus the "almost." In one issue, while being fired upon, she jumps between the bullets because ''it's more fun that way.''

* ComicBook/{{Superman}} can do this, he just tends to prefer taking attacks because it's safer for the attack to hit him rather than someone else most of the time. It's sometimes shown that even when he lets the bullets bounce off his chest to intimidate the crooks, he's quickly catching the ricochets to prevent casualties and collateral damage. However, this can come back to bite him whenever [[KryptoniteFactor Kryptonite]] is [[https://lowbrowcomics.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/img_0215.jpg involved]].

** ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' has also inhumanly fast reflexes which she usually exploits to shove someone out of harm's way or shield them as when she [[https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-c2cj7X_My14/WgL9nL1PrmI/AAAAAAAAcac/MJLVysKYRPwJzG77l2HaoKh8qtv4FphrgCHMYCw/%255BUNSET%255D grabbed a speeding bullet]] in ''ComicBook/SupergirlRebirth''. She has been known to [[ComicBook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton leap in the Darkseid's omega beams' way]] ''after'' he fired them at her cousin.
** Subverted in ''ComicBook/ActionComics'' issue #367-368. As seen in this [[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/File:Action_Comics_367.jpg cover]], he was flying so fast than he couldn't stop in time.



* Both Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} and ComicBook/{{X-23}} display enhanced reflexes as part of their HealingFactor. In the case of the latter, Laura has been depicted ParryingBullets fired at her head at ''point-blank range''.

* In the football setting of ''Manga/Eyeshield21'', [[JerkJock Agon]] [[TheGift Kongo]] of the Shinryuji Nagas has this trope as his most defining attribute of his vastly powerful skillset. However, he does need to be aware of threats to react to them, a flaw which cause him to lose a particular exchange with the desperate Sena who pushed down upon his helmet from the back of his head.
