* The Sailor trainer class does this ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' and ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire''. Due to the aforementioned cultural miscommunication, the international versions of ''Ruby'' and ''Sapphire'' edited the sprite to put the hand below the elbow.

* In one chapter of ''Manga/TheKurosagiCorpseDeliveryService'', Karatsu does this towards a villain, in a context that suggests he's going for a deliberate double meaning of both the Japanese gesture and the ''bras d'honneur''.

* [[MemeticBystander Random crowd member]] [[MemeticBadass Bruce Ironstaunch]] ([[FanNickname not his real name]]) in ''Anime/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.

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.
