** Also hilariously averted with Po, who attempted such poses only to be an Epic Failure nine times out of ten.
** A possible example, however, occurs when Tai Lung faces Shifu with flaming fists, pausing to snarl and brandish his burning paws before continuing the fight. The fact his paws didn't even seem singed afterward may be an attempt to avoid FamilyUnfriendlyViolence, an example of the movie's general AmusingInjuries mindset, or [[RuleOfCool simply showing how awesome he really is]].

* Parodied in the [[ComicBookAdaptation supplementary manga]] of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', which had a huge background picture of the WhiteMagicianGirl ''Caro'' doing this while [[SquishyWizard Hayate]] mentioned how she might lose to her too since she's undergone Nanoha's TrainingFromHell.

* In ''Fanfic/{{Wonderful}}'', [[TheCape Taylor]] poses constantly. In chapter 11:
-->There was a flash of light, and before his eyes, the girl was wearing the more familiar red clothes he had seen at the hospital, black mask on her face… and throwing a punch at the empty air.\\
She was POSING.

* ''SoulSeries'': Kilik oddly enough does ''NOT'' use a crane stance (see Film example above) as one of his pre-battle poses, despite that his "Crane stance + Staff held at a 45 degree angle" pose is extremely iconic for the series.

* In what can only be an affectionate parody or lampshade hanging to ''Charlie's Angels'', the three heroines of ''Final Fantasy X-2'' kick the game off by appearing in an ass-kicking pose stolen directly from the movie (plus the exotic FF weaponry)

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', it's an actual gameplay mechanic during the Mettaton BossBattle, you have to raise the ratings of the battle to a certain point - and one of the ways to do it is to use the "Pose" ACT. It's more effective the more hurt you are.

* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'' more of a Pre-Ass Kicking Pose. As the pirates [[MisfitMobilizationMoment Hoist The Colors and prepare to battle]] the East India Trading Company, most of the captains stand motionless as the banners rise behind them.

* Trope name comes from ''Film/CharliesAngels: Full Throttle'', where the term was used in a decidedly derisive tone. Both ''Charlie's Angels'' movies were rife with their [[AngelsPose eponymous poses]], commonly struck in choreographic unison.
