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.
