** 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).

** It originally appeared during the fight against Agahnim in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'', which lets you use either the Master Sword or the butterfly net.

Nope. [[BatterUp Swing, batta batta, swing]]! That's right, [[AttackReflector smack that ball of destruction right back towards 'im!]] If you're lucky, he won't be ready for it, and it'll hit him, leaving him open for a few good whacks with your WeaponOfChoice. If you're not, he'll hit it ''back'' and the game is on. For the extra-challenging variety, the ball will speed up each time you do this, so that eventually, you're furiously [[ButtonMashing mashing the button]] to attack again and again and hoping that the boss misses before you do.

* This trope, combined with TakingTheBullet, is the reason why The Fairy Godmother ended up defeated in ''WesternAnimation/Shrek2''. Basically, after Fiona's father revealed that he deliberately gave her regular tea instead of the one laced with a love potion, she tries to kill Shrek by firing a null-happily ever after spell at Shrek, Fiona's father intercepts the attack and gets hit with it instead, and since he was wearing armor at the time, it rebounded and hit the Fairy Godmother, which apparently disintegrated her into bubbles.
* In ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'', [[spoiler: Po defeats Shen's battle fleet by catching and throwing back the cannonballs launched at him.]]

* In ''[[SnowboardKids Snowboard Kids 2]]'', any projectile can be deflected back at the racer who shot it by doing a quick board grab. The idea is that the projectile hits the smooth, reflective surface of the snowboard. Deflected projectiles, however, can be deflected again, sending the projectile back at its target. This can be kept up until someone times it wrong or cannot do a board grab.
