** In "[[Recap/DoctorWho2016CSTheReturnOfDoctorMysterio The Return of Doctor Mysterio]]", [[FlyingBrick the Ghost]] introduces himself this way. First, he taps on the 100th floor window several times to get everyone's attention. Then, when everyone's looking in shock at a strange flying man in a cape and a mask, he nonchalantly snaps his fingers, and the window shatters, as he just as calmly lands inside. Even the episode's BigBad has to admit it was impressive, especially since the window was designed to withstand the equivalent of four nuclear blasts. Later, during his interview/date with the HotScoop Lucy, he snaps his fingers to light a candle.

** He later discovers he can open the TARDIS doors with a snap of his fingers, which he's used once as 10, several times as 11, and several times again as 12. In addition, his companion Clara Oswald became the first (and, to date, only) companion to also gain this ability, with she and the Doctor actually having a minor "finger snap duel" regarding the TARDIS doors in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E6TheCaretaker The Caretaker]]".

In a particularly memorable scene, Clara rides her motorcycle into the TARDIS, while the Doctor is busy reading an advanced quantum mechanics textbook. Without looking at her, he simply calls out "Draft!" She smiles and snaps her fingers to close the door.

* Subverted in ''Literature/TheSagaOfDarrenShan''. Mr Crepsley seemingly has the ability to summon objects to him by snapping his fingers. He later reveals he's actually grabbing them at SuperSpeed, and the finger-snapping is a form of misdirection (which he'd know about, as a stage performer).

** The Gerudo Champion Urbosa in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' can call down lightning strikes with a snap of her fingers as her signature ability. [[spoiler: Link gets the same ability after freeing the Divine Beast Vah Naboris, though the only time he snaps his fingers to do it is during the cutscene where he receives the power.]]

Compare with FingerGun, especially when a FriendlySniper is around.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock}}'': [[PlayingWithFire Incinerate is cast in this manner:]] the fact one can do this is actually used as in-game advertisement for the plasmid. Considering Subject Delta in the [[VideoGame/Bioshock2 sequel]] can use it with a simple wave of his hand, this hints that the trope is actually exploited for RuleOfCool InUniverse.
