* Similar to ''The Flintstones'' episode mentioned above, one episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Dexter's Laboratory]]'' had the characters learn a "free Judo lesson" that involved shrieking "AAAAAH, SHITAKE!!!" while flying through the air at the opponent.

* The 2010 reboot of ''Karate Kid'', apparently needing to upstage the original, climaxes with a magical reverse flip kick that wouldn't be out-of-place in a {{Wuxia}} film.

* Creator/JetLi protagonists indulge in being BadAss and fending off one MultiMookMelee after another, but since he is a trained martial artist, his fight choreography has ShownTheirWork and tend to be grounded in more realistic martial arts moves than your average {{wuxia}} movie, and when it's fantastical, the setting is as well.

** If you ever see a depiction of a martial artist trying to kick someone despite having a perfectly good sword (or other reasonably lengthy weapon) at hand, it's almost always because of this trope. Swords have all the advantages of a kick (better power and range than a hand technique) and none of the weaknesses (generally slower than a hand strike and requires the attacker to balance on one foot). And if the opponent ''also'' has a sword, this trope is definitely in effect - the only reason a competent martial artist would ever eschew the use of their weapon in favour of a kick against an armed opponent is if they didn't really like that particular limb and wanted to see how good their dojo's disability benefits were.

* Some of the earlier fights in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' had poor choreography on Robin's part. Several times he backflips ''away'' from the enemy to kick them. Fortunately he cleaned up his act in later seasons. This might be deliberate given that every time he fought [[Big Bad]]Slade (who didn't bother with flips or gymnastics at all), Slade kicked his ass.

* In spite of his reputation as the world's greatest martial artist, BruceLee's movies feature a lot of this. He admitted that jumping high kicks were only good for movies, and he would never use them in a real fight.
