* Kamina pulls one of these [[http://doublek.thewebcomic.com/comics/1359081/chapter-1-017/ while standing on a car full of whores]] in the early pages of ''DoubleK''. The author notes that he simply ''had'' to do it, since he never did in [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann the main series]].

* ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'': Captain Marvelous' default stance. Leads to a great moment in the first episode: Everything is exploding, the scenery is falling apart, and the rest of the team is ducking for cover. Marvelous? Standing unfazed, not giving a damn.

The Toys/SHFiguarts figure of Gokai Red even comes with the option to replace his poseable arms with folded ones.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' does this every so often. In the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc, in which she was a Kryptonian Red Lantern (one of the most obscenely overpowered possible combinations in Franchise/TheDCU), she did this pose several times. One of those times happened ''during a battle'': she flew in the battlefield, punched an enemy across the city, folded her arms and ''glared''.

* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'': This is King's default pose in battle, and many fear what would happen if he ever ''uncrossed'' his arms. [[spoiler:He's actually standing like this because with his arms crossed, it's easier for him not to flip out and run away.]]

* Played with in psychology. This stance denotes one of two things: (a) the person is in a state of deep thought[[note]]an aversion[[/note]] or (b) the person is in a state of insecurity.[[note]]an inversion[[/note]] The actual {{badass}} (and intimidating) pose would have good posture and hands on the hips denoting the person is purposefully opening themselves up for attack but they're confident enough with themselves to do it anyway.
