* A few times in the ''RanmaOneHalf'' animation, though more often than not they will gather energy in their hands by holding them to the ''side'' rather than above. In the case of Ryouga's the Shishi Hokodan, the manga depiction will usually have him cross his arms over his chest, and he will only push his palms forward to channel the ki at the last second.

Example.
[[folder:Anime and Manga]] * ''DragonBallZ''. Goku's [[CombinedEnergyAttack Spirit Bomb]] adapts the straight up then bomb position, while the [[KamehameHadoken Kamehameha]] used start with the arms spread wide at approximately 2 and 10 before cupping the gathered energy at the waist (though later they skipped that part and went straight to cup-and-fire); Vegeta, meanwhile, is more adept at chain blasting. Vegeta also has the Final Flash, in which he holds his arms out to his sides while charging up the attack and then brings his arms forward with hands cupped together (horizontally rather than the Kamehameha's vertical alignment) to fire the attack. * In ''SaintSeiya'', Camus and later Hyoga do the double drop as part of Aurora Thunder and Aurora Execution. The former, anime only, technique executes it quickly, so that the Saint tosses several blasts in succession. For the latter, raising your hands is part of a near-ritualistic stance, rather than a gathering of power.

* A few attacks in ''CityOfHeroes'' and ''CityOfVillains'' use this animation, most notably Ionic Judgement (raise arms to gather lightning, release bolt), Neutron Bomb (charge up glowy orb, throw) and Thunderous Blast (shakily charge up electricity, release electrical bolt).

Increasing information about Saint Seiya
* In ''SaintSeiya'', Camus and later Hyoga do the double drop as part of Aurora Thunder and Aurora Execution. The former technique executes it quickly, so that the Saint tosses several blasts in succession. For the latter, raising your hands is part of a near-ritualistic stance, rather than a gathering of power. ** Subverted by the film version of Gemini Saga's Galactic Explosion. He will raise ''one'' hand high over his head... while his ''other'' hand, held close to his side, grasps a steadily-engorging globe of naked power. The TV and manga versions follow a more standard approach.

However, most of its uses happen in a different way, sometimes resembling a '' KamehameHadouken''.

* "Blasting" spells in ''{{Slayers}}'', from the basic Fireball to the [[SphereOfDestruction Dragon Slave]] are often cast this way, with the mage in question raising her hands as she recites the incantation. Quite justified because the FunctionalMagic of ''Slayers'' is basically {{Theurgy}}, with black magic in particular requiring calling upon the power of the resident {{God of Evil}} or some of his almost-as-powerful spawn; it's basically a praying gesture.

* Performed by the titular character of ''HellTeacherNube'' while momentarily transformed into a full oni due to his RedRightHand. In order to defeat a vicious, nigh-invincible enemy, oni-Nube raises his hand and gathers [[CombinedEnergyAttack the love and trust of his students]] into a sphere that he then flings down at the enemy, blasting a sizable hole through it.
