* Arale from ''Manga/DoctorSlump'' perhaps is not only the first manga/anime character to ever do this, but she's also probably responsible for the name, since she does it to pretend she's flying and makes a sound like a jet engine.

A cooler, more aerodynamic variant, with the runner's body leaning foward and the arms swept farther back, like the wings on an F-14 Tomcat, is also often used to indicate a very fast and agile runner. {{Ninja}} are frequently portrayed running this way, though they now tend to prefer the NinjaRun. [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai Samurai]] also run in a similar manner, usually while keeping one hand grasped onto their katana. In a more (apparently) realistic series this may have something to do with the runner having a reduced profile and thus being harder to hit with ranged weaponry, but it's generally just the RuleOfCool. In modern Japan, this pose is known as "[[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=list&tags=bu-n buun]]"
