* Spoofed in a scene of ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' where Piccolo and Android 17 are locked in one of these to tense music. The camera then switches to 18's point of view, without any music, where she comments the fight could not possibly get any dumber.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' has statues of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln get into this kind of stance with each other; hilariously enough, their fight with each other ends after that, much to Dexter and Mandark's mutual ire.

* RumikoTakahashi's ''Maris the Chojo'' does this, between the titular character and her [[TheRival rival Sue]]. Both are [[HeavyWorlder super strong due to coming from a planet with high gravity]], but Maris is at a disadvantage since [[PowerLimiter she can't remove the restraints that keep her strength in check]].

** Besides the Collar & Elbow, this exists in pro wrestling (and many a schoolyard) as the fingerlock, where the opponents lock hands with each other and try to make the other go to their knees.
** More often, subverting this has become the norm. The heel will raise one or both hands, challenging the face to a fingerlock. When the face raises his hands to lock up, the heel will immediately attack the exposed midsection with a knee or a kick.

** Also used in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'', when [[McNinja Byrne]] charges up for a rush attack, you can position the phantom guardian[[spoiler:/Zelda]] in front of you, to cut him off, and the two of them will grapple, giving Link an opportunity to attack him from behind.
