* The eponymous {{Yaiba}} does that is he has to face a flying opponent. Usually with a little help from Shonosuke and later with the Ryujin Katana.

A form of RammingAlwaysWorks applied to combat, AirJousting involves two combatants flying at each other at high speed and smashing together, much like Medieval knights on horses and may be applied to characters riding flying mounts, such as [[DragonRider dragons]]. If the combatants have weapons that resemble actual lances it seems even more like jousting. If both are covered with a SphereOfPower then they'll bounce off each other like very destructive glowing ping-pong balls.

* This is how the weapon-wielding characters in ''VideoGame/KillerQueen'' fight. The mechanics are deliberately similar to those of ''VideoGame/{{Joust}}''.

* Aerial battles in the ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' were often more interesting than this, given that the characters ''could'', in fact, turn around or fly backwards. It only got very lazy and commonplace for the third season, to skimp out on better choreography.

* {{Thorgal}} has space jousting, with two guys on jetbikes with tridents. ItMakesSenseInContext, as the two duellers are fighting to decide whether they return to Earth as gods among men or live in hiding.

* A DiscussedTrope in the ''Literature/XWingSeries''. Since there isn't very much cover in space, barring a ground-based engagement or a sudden deployment by carrier, every battle between starfighters involves a "head-to-head" phase. The accepted wisdom is that head-to-heads favor New Republic starfighters (which have DeflectorShields and typically carry missiles), whereas the greater maneuverability of the light Imperial fighters have an advantage in the "furball" that follows.
