* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Distant Origin", Captain Janeway tells her alien captor to hold onto something as his spaceship is about to be attacked. He defiantly does this trope instead.

Added DiffLines:

* Constable Odo from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', is exceptionally fond of this trope, in keeping with his image as a stoic, badass frontier lawman. If he's not doing one of these, then he's usually rocking its counterpart, the ReverseArmFold.

* Kratos Aurion in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' does this quite often. Succeeding him in ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' and ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'' is Gaius, who's almost always doing this when he's idle. He even does it in battle while he's participating in Rowen's Dual Capriccio link arte (Which has him take a short ride atop a magically produced air glider).

The rest of the cast [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] this and one victory pose even has a few of them ''copying'' him while he looks on in bafflement.
** [[BadassNormal Yuri]] [[BreakoutCharacter Lowell]] from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' does this in a skit pose.

* In the old Creator/DataEast medieval-themed wrestling/fighting game ''MutantFighter'' (aka ''Death [[{{Engrish}} Brade]]''), This was Pazuzu the Demon's default pose. He even did it while performing his super attack.

One of the few ways to indicate that you are a badass or at least hellishly ambitious. badasses tend to fold their arms in front of them. When you see one doing such pose, you know they are badass or remarkably powerful, or so calm they got the situation in control or at least harbor ''great'' ambition. It is also a symbol of cockiness. Bonus points if they have impressive muscles.

** This is often Gaara's default position. Justified, as his absolute sand defense ''and'' sand armor prevent much of anything from touching him.

*All of the four except Ringo do this a few times in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', particularly the NighInvulnerable Paul, who likes to do it when he's quietly daring someone to attack him.
