* ''{{Exalted}}'': The Anima Banners of Solars and Lunars are "iconic"--that is, at their brightest, they manifest as a coherent image that reflects on that particular Exalt's nature. For Solars, this can be anything--examples include symbolic animals, complex mandalas, mazes of ice, and many others. For Lunars, this is always their spirit shape, their [[ShapeshifterDefaultForm default animal form.]] Abyssals also have iconic anima banners, but they tend to be more death-related imagery, and sometimes a corruption of the former Solar banner -- skulls, corpses, wraiths, funeral shrouds, and the like. Green Sun Princes tend to have imagery styled after their Yozi patron, including demons descended from that particular Yozi. Alchemicals generally have industrial-themed imagery -- machinery, electricity, smoke, steam, etc. Sidereals and Dragon-Blooded never have iconic anima banners (except a few Dragon-Bloods who have a representation of an Elemental Dragon), so this is one of the characteristics the Wyld Hunt uses to identify Anathema.

* A number of entries in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' features the physical arte Beast, which sends a burst of spiritual energy in the shape of a lion's head flying at the enemy. Variations that use other animals like wolves or dragons also exist.

* Just like in her animated appearances, Vixen does this when activating her powers in ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''.

** The same occurs in [[WesternAnimation/{{Vixen}} her own]] animated series.

* In the fighting game Brawhalla, a handful of fighters use an animal aura for signatures, ranging from actually being their spirit, being the aura of a defeated foe, an animal companion not physically with them to just animal shaped spells.

[[AC:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** The Kyuubi chakra is one such example, growing more defined as Naruto gets older and uses more and more of its power. The first time he taps into its chakra, his BattleAura briefly forms an enormous demonic fox head above him before subsiding. When he fights Sasuke at the Valley of the End, his aura resembles a one-tailed version of the Kyuubi and is capable of moving independently of his body. Post-TimeSkip, we see that he can sprout up to three chakra tails and still be (mostly) himself - if it gets to [[FourIsDeath four]], the aura is replaced by a OneWingedAngel transformation. The use of an aura and transformation are common among the jinchuuriki.
** [[spoiler:Naruto]] gained the ability to manifest a {{Kaiju}}-sized BattleAura in the form of his bijuu. Most jinchuuriki instead manifest a physical form of their bijuu.[[note]]According to Kurama, this is because they haven't practiced it yet and the transformation is imperfect.[[/note]]
** When extremely focused, Zabuza can manifest an ethereal demon's face from his KillingIntent, terrifying opponents with a weak will. Early in the manga this is played as due to how intimidating he was, but it is confirmed as an actual technique [[spoiler:when he is brought back with the Edo Tensei.]]
** Hinata's Twin Lion Fists attack - exactly what it sounds like.
** Might Guy's [[LimitBreak Afternoon Tiger]] technique is a punch that compresses air into a giant tiger head. Unlike the others, there's no chakra involved in the tiger - once he opens enough [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Gates]], the sheer force of his blows can force the air into these shapes. [[spoiler: He goes even further with the [[DeadlyUpgrade Night Guy]], in which he uses his chakra full-blast to form a dragon head, with his light-speed kick at the receiving end.]]

Bit Beasts have these.



* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'': Kenshin occasionally gets a dragon aura, and Enishi's had a tiger aura at least once as well.
* Parodied in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': the enemies radiate a fearsome, intimidating auras of powerful beasts --a dragon, a wolf, and a tiger-- with a [[UnsoundEffect LOOOOOOOOM]] sound effect. The heroes ''try'' to do the same with the auras of... girl Ranma at her adorablest, and an equally cute duck and pig, and a much smaller [-LOOOOOM-] effect.
** Also played straight on occasion with Ranma's aura taking on the appearance of an eastern style dragon when using the Hiryu Shoten Ha attack, such as in the first movie.
* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'': Most of the Saints' patron constellations represent an animal or mystical creature; in the case of [[MonsterOfTheWeek minor foes]], the appearance of said creature in their [[BattleAura Cosmo]] is merely for intimidation, but when a Gold Saint or a main character does it, it typically heralds a [[LetsGetDangerous serious turn of the tide]] in the duel. Furthermore, the vast majority of signature attacks, such as the [[RapidFireFisticuffs Pegasus Ryusei Ken]], [[{{Shoryuken}} Rozan Shoryu Ha]], [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Phoenix Genma Ken]], [[PlayingWithFire Hou Yoku]] [[BlowYouAway Tensho]], and [[AnIcePerson Diamond Dust]], tend to manifest visible auras as the Saint delivers it (in the above examples, the Pegasus, an enormous Chinese Long, the Phoenix, or a swan).
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'':
** Yusuke's aura manifests as a phoenix near the end of the Dark Tournament.
** When Hiei uses the Dragon of the Darkness Flame against Bui, this effect happens with, you guessed it, a dragon.
** In the very first match of the Dark Tournament, Rinku, who manipulates yo-yos that can twist in the air like snakes, briefly manifests a hissing ethereal red snake behind him during the fight, at least to Kuwabara's eyes.
* Parodied in ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' : [[TheGenericGuy Nishizawa]]'s animal battle aura is a ''cute little hamster''. Which causes Nagi to thoroughly mock her and nickname her "Hamster".
* In ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'', boxer Sendo Takeshi's nickname is "The Naniwa Tiger". Try to guess what his battle aura looked like to Ippo.
* Early in ''Manga/{{Parasyte}}'', when provoked, the titular aliens project creatures behind them (a metaphor for their predatory bearing). One gives off a tarantula just before murdering a lion, and the main character shows a praying mantis before punching someone out.
* Musubi from ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'' has a bear aura, and all of her special attacks are bear-themed. The aura was even seen crying in a recent chapter when Musubi herself was upset.
* Happens quite often to Zoro in ''Manga/OnePiece'', with a variety of animals depending on what attack he is using, from a dragon, to a bull, to a [[AGodAmI demon god]]...

* Used as a one-off in the finale of ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder''. After Mesogog's OneWingedAngel form not only tanks their entire arsenal but starts ''multiplying'', the Rangers channel all their power into one final attack. This takes the form of a glowing T-rex who swallows Mesogog before the obligatory explosion.
