*** Though that was mostly due to Kira's no kill policy that he did that. He could have went for the chest instead, making it a double KO. Possibly a win since Kira ended up surviving anyway.

* Filipino wrecking ball Nonito Donaire is a master of this technique; after baiting Fernando Montiel into throwing a big right cross, Donaire countered over it with a monstrous left hook which left Montiel spasming on the mat.

* This is actually possible in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games, though it all comes down to whoever's attack connected first.

* This For {{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'s artwork in honor of her reveal as the final GuestFighter in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for 3DS and Wii U'', it displays an epic battle of Light vs. Darkness, with the very bottom displaying [[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac]] and [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]] locked mid-cross counter. Cross countering is actually possible in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games, game proper as well, though it all comes down to whoever's attack connected first.

* Done in ''Videogame/{{Yakuza}} 2''. [[spoiler:The final battle with Ryuji Ghoda, the final quick time event results in an epic cross counter! Almost as epic as the [=MGS4=] one referenced above.]] Incidentally, Yakuza borrows heavily from MGS, among others, obviously including ''Ashita no Joh''.

* The climax of ''TheDeathOfSuperman'' had {{Superman}} and [[ImplacableMan Doomsday]]'s long, brutal fight end with both of them hitting each other as hard as they can simultaneously. This causes [[KungFuSonicBoom shockwaves for blocks]] and results in both of their deaths.

* In the third episode of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', Simon and Kamina in their newly-combined ganmen (Gurren-Lagann) rushes towards Viral's Enki. Viral throws a punch, and Kamina throws a punch along the same line. When both ganmen's fists hit each other's faces, Dayakka yells out (in GratuitousEnglish), "CUROSSU COUNTAH!" and the shot takes on the same yellow hue with dark shadows as the punch from ''AshitaNoJoe'' (as pictured at the top of the page). Another Cross Counter happens much later in the series, [[spoiler: being the first attack that starts the FinalBattle between the [[TitleDrop Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann]] and the [[BigBad Grand]] [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame Zamboa]].]]

* This happened repeatedly in ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer''. In the fight between Wizard and Hikaru, it was even altered so that, though Wizard was still punching her, Hikaru had ''kicked'' him in the face instead.

* [=EP4=] of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' features a [[AnyoneCanDie rare humorous scene]] where Krauss fights [[spoiler:a Goat-man, [[FanNickname affectionately named Bro-Goat by fans.]]]] This scene parodies multiple series, including the {{Nasuverse}}, {{Dragonball}}, and invokes [[ClicheStorm trope after trope]]. To finish it all off, it ends with a Triple Cross ([[IncrediblyLamePun Krauss]]!) Counter as the fight ending punch.

* Bruce Irvin from ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' can do a cross counter(called the Nightmare Punch) when the player times it with an opponent's punch. Also subverted in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iBaLXmR09Q arcade intro]] - Both Jin and Kazuya evade each others' fists.

Added DiffLines:

** [[RobotGirl Alisa]] can perform a variation of this in her punch counter. Her opponent punches her head, and she punches their gut. [[DetachmentCombat However, her head falls off harmlessly and she just puts herself together afterwards by generating a new head.]]
