Added DiffLines:

* A lot of characters do this in ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' but this is hilariously parodied in the sequel ''Brave New World'' where [[VideoGame/VirtuaFighter Kage Maru]] does this while Akira Yuuki is rowing the boat all by himself.

Added DiffLines:

* This is VideoGame/{{Strider}} Hien's idle pose in ''Strider 2'', in contrast of Hiryu's battle-ready stance. Hiryu himself later borrows it as his idle pose in the 2014 ''Strider'' game.

* As her default mugshot sprite and non-battle {{Idle Animation}}, [[VideoGame/{{TheLegendaryStarfy}} Snips]] tends to do this.

** ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Kouji Kabuto sometimes does this. A good example in an episode in which Mazinger-Z is nearly completely depleted from energy during a battle, the control deck is smoking and giving off sparks due to the strain, the weapons don't work, Prof. Yumi is ordering - ''repeatedly'' - for Kouji to retreat because he'll die otherwise... and Kouji simply folds his arms across his chest as he calmly waits for one chance to blast the Beast down! It is hard to convey how {{Badass}} he seemed right then.

* Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner complains that he isn't able to do to this when [[GenderBender he turned in a woman]] ([[MostCommonSuperPower with a physical trait common with most comic superheroines]]) in an issue of ''Guy Gardner: Warrior''.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/DarkLordTheRiseOfDarthVader'', Vader, getting used to his armor, is learning which poses are most intimidating. He folds his arms often, and also plants his fists on his hips.

* Jafar from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' can pull this of well, like the scene where Prince Ali visits. In [[Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar the sequel]], Jafar comes out of the lamp as a huge red genie, folds his arms, hovers hugely and ominously, then leans in ''really'' close, scaring Abis Mal.
