* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': The nervous tic that Shinji displayed in the series, the clenching/relaxing of his left hand, shows up again just before the battle with [[EldritchAbomination the 12th angel]]. However, in another example of character growth, Shinji actually notices this and makes himself stop (and also mentally lampshades how "old habits are hard to break".)

The fact that he still did this unconsciously is what alerts Jango to the fact Captain Kuro is as dangerous as he ever was, even as a RetiredBadass.

* Given the way comic-book physics work, there is no possible way ComicBook/{{Superman}} (or any other hero, for that matter) ''needs'' to [[UpUpAndAway raise one arm]] when he takes flight. Yet... [[RuleOfCool it looks cool]].
** Although it may be so that anything he smashes into hits his fist first instead of his head.
* There is plenty of evidence that Professor X, Jean Grey, and all the various {{telepath|y}}s of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} books can use their [[PsychicPowers mental powers]] without pressing their fingers to their temples (and optionally extending one hand) - doing so would appear to be the telepathic equivalent of sticking your tongue out the corner of your mouth while aiming at a target: it just feels like it helps, even though it serves no purpose.
* ComicBook/{{X-Men}} villain (and sometimes [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor ally]]) {{Magneto}} appears to reflexively extend his hands to guide his magnetic powers (one hand for minor uses, both for really big stuff). It clearly isn't necessary, though, as he will occasionally remain motionless when using his powers for intimidation purposes, presumably a conscious decision to imply that a foe is beneath his notice. There has been evidence that he can use his powers better when using his hand, but like the example below, it's probably just to help him focus.
* Superhumanly agile characters like {{Spider-Man}} and [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Nightcrawler]] will often [[http://www.just-marvel-x-men.com/image-files/uncanny-x-men-411-nightcrawler-teleports-1-50k.jpg crouch]] or even drop to [[http://ps2media.ign.com/ps2/image/spidey_crouch_640w.jpg all-fours]] for no reason other than because it looks [[RuleOfCool dynamic]] and to show off how flexible they are.

A lot of people found this quite charming and dramatic... Until Eleanor Audley died of respiratory failure at eighty-six.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''
** Picard's habit of straightening his uniform whenever he stands up. Nicknamed "the Picard Manoeuvre" by the production staff, it was given a ShoutOut on the show as a battle tactic the character invents also called the Picard Manoeuvre. He also often made a little flicking motion with his hand when he said "Engage", which is something Kirk used to do.
** Then there's Lore's facial tic, which comes in handy when you [[EvilTwin need to distinguish him from Data]].
** Data has a few of his own, such as tilting his head to one side or the other when he is confused. It's apparently the body language equivalent of a hard drive clicking.
*** This is lampshaded in "Hero Worship" where Data is tending to a human boy who is trying to act just like Data [[note]]The boy was suffering from severe trauma and latched onto Data[[/note]] and Data cannot get him to hold still to brush the boy's hair. Data realizes this tic could be distracting to others.
** Characters in this and later series tended to touch their communicator badge when making or receiving a call. It wasn't strictly necessary, as saying "[X] to [Y]" or "[Y] here" would open the channel. It was probably force of habit on the part of the characters ("picking up the phone", as it were).
** Q would snap his fingers to invoke his powers. Another Q, named Quinn, had a two fingered swirl-and-raise thing that served the same function.
** Riker has two notable tics: [[CaptainMorganPose leaning on top of different objects (e.g. tables and consoles)]], and sitting down by stretching his leg over the chair (much like mounting a horse), both due to Creator/JonathanFrakes' height and problems with back pain.
