* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}: Panels focused on one of a character's hands reoccur, and usually indicate either that an important decision has been made or realization has been had. In addition, the BigBad's [[RedRightHand six-fingered hands]] are used to signify her, and are shown as a symbol of her control over Ceres and Pluto.

* This seems to be the entire idea behind the ''Crimson Chin'' [[ShowWithinAShow Comic/Webshow Within A Show]] in the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Fairly Odd Parents]]''. Aside from the eponymous hero and his [[HeyItsThatVoice Jay Leno]]-parody chin, nearly his entire rogues gallery is based on various body parts. This includes the Bronze Kneecap, Iron Lung, Copper Cranium, Titanium Toenail, Gilded Arches, Golden Gut, Brass Knuckles, Hair-Razor, and his own evil counterpart, the Nega-Chin.

** Hands get focused on a ''LOT'' in the original series, TheMovie, and ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild,]]'' to the point someone even [[http://www.en-soph.org/archives/23738746.html wrote a whole essay about it.]]

* Creator/TimothyZahn often uses a hand-as-title motif in his Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse novels. In TheThrawnTrilogy, Mara Jade was revealed to have been the Emperor's Hand, a sort of agent. In the HandOfThrawn duology, characters speculate that the Hand of Thrawn is an agent like Mara or a superweapon; it turns out to be a five-towered fortress with a massive repository of Thrawn's greatest weapon, knowledge. [[spoiler: And a very special clone.]] The Empire Thrawn set up out in the Unknown Regions is called the "Empire of the Hand". Most recently, in ''Literature/{{Allegiance}}'', the five do-gooder renegade stormtroopers accidentally name themselves the Hand of Judgement. The 501st Legion, Darth Vader's personal BadassArmy, is sometimes called "Vader's Fist", though to be fair the 501st is an AscendedMeme / Reverse {{Defictionalization}} and not Zahn's creation. At the end of ''Allegiance'', the Emperor's Hand saves the Hand of Judgement from Vader by claiming them as hers, saying "You have the entire Five-oh-first. You certainly won't begrudge me my Hand of Judgment." Then she hears the five out, concludes that while they ''are'' technically deserters they are also good Imperials, and lets them leave, telling them to lose the name. There's only one Hand in the Empire, and she's it.

** In the ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'' novelization, Anakin's mechanical hand aches when Count Dooku is near, crushes things when he's angry, and is mentioned often.

** The protagonist Crystal Gems also have a subtle secondary facial theme: Garnet hides three eyes behind her vizor, Pearl's most easily-noticed feature is her nose, and Amethyst bears the poutiest lips in the series.

** Recent additions to the cast have also put emphasis on the arms and hands. People in this comic who say they would "give their arm" for something are speaking literally. [[spoiler:Anthony willingly amputates his own right arm -- destroying his career as a surgeon and throwing away any future plans as a doctor in the process -- in a vain attempt to contact his wife and retrieve the past. Later, Ysengrin calmly sacrifices his left arm to Annie's flames of rage in order to reconnect her with her anger and fire-powers.]]
