* A non-damaging variant occurs in ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'' with the ability Magic Bounce. If the boss ever tries to inflict a status move on the Pokemon with the said ability, it is reflected back.

** Similarly, the TrueFinalBoss of ''[[SonicStorybookSeries Sonic And The Secret Rings]]'' can be damaged and stunned by deflecting its giant energy ball back at it. Since there's no other way to avoid this attack, this is a wise course of action.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening Link's Awakening]]'' features a shadow version of Agahnim during the final showdown, complete with tennis-based battle strategy. This time, the Shovel also works.

* The XboxLiveArcade version of ''VideoGame/CastleCrashers'' literally makes you play a game of volleyball with the boss of the Desert Sandcastle.

** An unintentional example could be pulled in the SNES game adaptation of ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'' during the final battle with Vader. By switching to a blaster, firing a shot, then switching back to the lightsaber, you could play a very pointless game of pong with Vader. He has perfect deflection reflexes, and won't move until the shot clears the screen (either by hitting you or being jumped by you).

* PlayedWith in both ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}''-games. Both games require you to hit the bosses with their own projectiles ([[spoiler:rockets from [=GLaDOS=] in ''Videogame/Portal1'' and bombs from Wheatley in ''Videogame/Portal2'']]), but you don't actually ''hit'' them back. Instead, you [[spoiler: redirect them using portals]].

** In ''Ganbare Goemon 4'', a Japanese-only sequel to the game, the ''final'' boss consists of a minigame where you have to throw a ball back to the sports-obsessed villain until he is crushed by it. It's painfully difficult. And in ''Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon'' for the {{Nintendo 64}}, the boss of the Festival Temple Castle, Tsurami, flings spinning plates at the heroes, who must slap them back at her to win.

** In ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'', the final boss [[spoiler:(Ganon again... er, actually, make that '''Yuga''' Ganon)]] does this twice. The first time has the standard type of one ball; the second time, he uses two balls.

** Referenced in ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors''; Link's water-elemental 'weapon' class is the Great Fairy, and one of her combo finishers involves a quick game of Dead Man's Volley.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' plays this differently than usual; Link can knock back any FrickinLaserBeams, from {{Mook}}s and bosses alike, but he has to use his shield. [[TropesAreFlexible It still qualifies for the trope]], though, because of how shield defense works in this game; if you don't hit the right button at the right time, the sheer power of the laser attack will break just about anything but the [[ArmorOfInvincibility Hylian Shield]] (and probably get you killed if you've got less than ten hearts).
