* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', Subaru and Teana have at least two (and quite possibly three or more) Cross Shifts. They use Cross Shift A against some drones, which consists of Subaru seemingly acting as a diversion while Teana shoots from behind (one stray shot almost hits Subaru). They also use Cross Shift C against Nanoha during the mock battle in Episode 8, which mainly consists of Subaru attacking Nanoha head-on and Teana jumping down on her with Dagger Mode while she's distracted by an illusionary Teana elsewhere (this [[BarehandedBladeBlock doesn't]] [[HeroicBSOD end]] [[FingerPokeOfDoom well]]).

* The Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse is, naturally, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Tactics chock-full]] of these babies. ''Attack Run Rancor Alderaan Niner'', anyone? Or how about a ''Cracken Twist'', or a ''Thrawn Pincer''? Not an ''Ackbar Slash'', though. '''[[IThoughtItMeant Never]] an [[{{Squick}} Ackbar]] [[BrainBleach Slash]].'''

* In ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', Huey, Dewey and Louie frequently resort to "plan B" when they don't get their way. "Plan B" means "lie down on the floor, cry, scream and kick". Uncle Scrooge usually gives in.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' make fun of this. Blossom called out "Attack pattern Alpha Omega Atari!", and the girls flew toward the monster, while their beam trails looked like the {{Atari}} logo. Well, Atari ''was'' once part of Warner Communications.[[note]]Which has since become Time Warner, the parent company of Turner Entertainment, whose Creator/CartoonNetwork originally aired the show. Additionally, Time Warner now owns the post-1984 Atari (i.e., the "Atari Games") catalog (again).[[/note]]
