Seriously, are these games somehow extinct and can't be played anymore? Or inexplicably the games magically stopped fitting the trope?
* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2: Echoes'' had the Quad drones as well as the Quadraxis boss battle, which could curl up into spinning top shapes. The former could only be stopped by bashing into them using the Boost Ball.

* In ''HunterXHunter'', Gido tosses tops infused with nen (life force). When hit, the main character remarks that they hit like a sledgehammer. If the opponent gets too close, Gido can then spin like a top.

** The Spinner returns as an unlockable weapon for Link in ''[[HyruleWarriors The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Warriors]]'' where it has been massively beefed up. In addition to being able to attack all enemies with it, it has become a full-fledged [[StanceSystem fighting style]] giving Link impressive [[IKnowMaddenKombat skateboard like]] attacks. Link can also summon multiple Spinners making stepping stones, traps, or he can launch the spares at enemies. The weapon has gained a [[ShockAndAwe Lightning]] elemental affinity meaning it can store electricity and create an electric charge around Link that fries enemies.
