* An odd variant: when [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Dio Brando]] invokes his TimeStandStill power, he raises his arms and sweeps them down and around before throwing them out to his sides on the shout of "ZA WARUDO!"

This is similar to the PstandardPsychicPstance, this [[StockPoses pose]] is meant to give motion and direction to what would normally be intangible forces and liven up dull scenes. In the story itself, this is probably [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as being necessary for the FullContactMagic, [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinesis]] or CombinedEnergyAttack to be properly executed. In which case immobilizing the arms effectively stops the attack or forces a misfire.

* In ''Manga/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.

* Exploited as a plot-point to defeat the BigBad in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'': Makuta Teridax has to raise his arms to use his gravity-powers, with which he wants to fold the planet onto itself and make Mata Nui, the hero, watch his people and his friends die. [[spoiler:The latter uses this opening to lunge at Makuta, crushing his head against a moon/asteroid/planet chunk (depends on the medium) that's been attracted by their combined gravity-powers.]]

* Most [[FireIceLightning nature-oriented]] Mages in the ''FireEmblem'' series use this form while casting spells. Shamans (dark spellcasters) do it in reverse - holding their hands in front of themselves to charge the power up before raising them to unleash it.
