The gesture is [[AccidentalUnfortunateGesture frequently misinterpreted in other places]], as it looks very similar to the obscene "bras d'honneur" gesture, equivalent to FlippingTheBird, used in much of Southern Europe and Latin America.

* Fumio Usui in ''{{Karin}}'' does this in job interviews, declaring that she has faith in her body. Given that she is a mom who suffers from SoBeautifulItsACurse, this is definitely a mistake.

* [[MemeticBystander Random crowd member]] [[MemeticBadass Bruce Ironstaunch]] ([[FanNickname not his real name]]) in ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. He was most likely doing it for the original Japanese meaning, but [[ImageBoards other parties]] figured he was just giving Rossiu an up-yours when he announced [[spoiler:he was executing Simon]]. His dour expression, on the other hand, doesn't really look all that supportive, which is why his gesture was interpreted as "Up Yours!" in the first place.

Probably because having [[LadyOfWar Signum herself]] do one would look really weird.

* In the anime version of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', as Joseph peeks on the bathing Lisa Lisa and admiring this pose, he does this pose to 'the audience' as he exclaimed ''"[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpTEKTLVKCE Niiiiice!]]"'' Which also goes for extra hilarity when you realize that [[spoiler:Joseph was actually peeking on his bathing ''mom'']]

* Ryouga tends to do the "up yours" variety in ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]''. One time, in the {{OVA}}s, he combined it [[FlippingTheBird with a middle-finger]].

A common Japanese gesture when preparing to take on a difficult task is to "make a muscle" and rub one's bicep, emphasizing strength. "''Yoshi!''" (''"OK!"'', or ''"Alright!"'') is frequently said with a determined expression when doing this, whereas Westerners usually just grunt. Compare to the "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:We_Can_Do_It!.jpg Rosie the Riveter]]" image from World War II.

* In ''BigTitsZombie'', two female characters sumo wrestle one another. The main character can be briefly seen making this gesture, although she does so while facing her opponent which could easily be interpreted as the Western version since both girls did not get along.
