Deflection or deflexion may refer to:

  • Deflection (engineering), the displacement of a structural element under load
  • Deflection (military), a technique of shooting ahead of a moving target so that the target and projectile will collide
  • Deflection (physics), the event where an object collides and bounces against a plane surface
  • Deflexion (linguistics), a linguistic process related to inflectional languages
  • Electrostatic deflection, a technique for modifying the path of charged particles by the use of an electric field
  • Deflection (chess), a tactic that forces an opposing chess piece to leave a square
  • Khet (game), an Egyptian-themed chess-like abstract strategy board game using lasers, formerly known as Deflexion
