* 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.

* ''Fanfic/MegamiNoHanabira'', [[TheDon Shusui Naito]] springs his ambush on the girls in this manner: he snaps his fingers and a battalion of {{Yakuza}} come streaming into the room, completely surrounding the heroes.

* At one point in ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'', Puss strikes a thief with a headbutt, walks away and then snaps his fingers the moment the dazed thief passes out.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has [[spoiler: Lily Potter, White Phoenix of the Crown]], reveal this as one of her signature moves. How badass is it? Well, the first time she uses it, it's almost entirely off-hand and it cows a fragment of [[spoiler: Chthon]] that had been powerful enough to go toe to toe with ''Odin''. ''Twice.'' The second time, noting impishly that she doesn't often get the chance to show off, she uses it to transport everyone from London to the royal hall in Asgard. As a deeply impressed Carol puts it...
-->'''Carol:''' Dude. [[spoiler: Your mom]] has got ''moves.''

FridgeLogic makes one wonder about the "orders" one. How much time is spent training the mooks whether the finger snap means "bring the suitcase of money", "kill them", or "get me something to drink?"
