* Evie characters that specialize in scythes in ''{{Vindictus}}'' can learn two major skills that can take enemies out with one snap of their fingers. The first skill, Bloody Thread, surrounds up to four mobs with thread and when Evie snaps her fingers, the thread contracts ForMassiveDamage. The second skill, Mark of Death, has her marking up to four mobs, getting the soul from one, and when she snaps her fingers, the souls from the mobs marked are released from the body. Scythe Evies especially love using these skills as a way to finish off bosses.

-> ''I raised my left hand in the air as I turned away, focused once more on my destination, and, in a move I stole straight from Gilgamesh, [[BadassFingersnap I snapped my fingers once]]. Above me the gears of my soul hung in the sky churned once with a noise like the heartbeat of god. And from the sky [[StormOfBlades a rain of silver flung itself down upon my foes.]]''

* In ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', Issei activates Dress Break by snapping his fingers. [[ClothingDamage It does exactly what it says.]] How badass is it? [[spoiler: Badass enough to overcome a ''higher tier'' Longinus that's currently strapped into Asia from turning her into a tactical nuke.]]

* In one episode of ''Series/BurnNotice'', Michael Westen convinces a gang of hardened Latino criminals to help him. He does this by snapping his fingers, at which point his careful planning will result in the other members of his crew (Sam Axe and Fiona) causing something dramatic and incredible to happen, like a door exploding; he essentially intimidates them into helping him. At one point, he has to improvise, and he ''bluffs'' by holding up his fingers, ready to snap them. By now, the gang is so afraid of what his finger-snaps cause to happen, even if they are reasonably sure that he's an still ordinary mortal man, that they quickly acquiesce to his demand without him having anything in place. At the end of the episode, as we cut away from the gangers from the last time (Michael's plotting having resulted in them taking control of a large turf from an arguably much-worse cartel,) the gang's leader snaps his fingers as he walks away from the scene of the confrontation, full of new confidence and most likely new ideas.
