*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': The duel between [[spoiler: Tiza and Hailey]]in ''Literature/ManaMutationMenace'' ends with both of them slugging the other at the same time and then falling over. This shows that, [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl despite their differences]] they are evenly matched.

** ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' has a straight example during the fight between Goku and Vegeta after he's become a Majin. Don't think about the fact that Vegeta should probably have shorter reach.
*** Or that since high-speed fighting is the norm for DBZ and fight scenes are meant to be very serious that the moment the trope is played straight it's accompanied by a few seconds pause ''and'' a cartoonish sound effect.
*** There's also a LikeFatherLikeSon moment where Goten and Trunks land cross counters on each other in exactly the same manner their fathers did.

*** 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.

* Alexis Arguello, who was one of the most precise punchers to ever step into the ring, [[https://youtu.be/2NzW0clbIEY?t=48s shows the proper way of countering a jab with a straight right]].
* Juan Manuel Marquez takes a moment to parry Manuel Medina's right hand before [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0c2lXEpFxk launching into a devastating combination]].

* 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]].]]
