** In his younger days Obi-Wan was a master of Soresu, the most defensive form of lightsaber combat focusing heavily on spinning the lightsaber to create a nearly impenetrable defense against blaster fire and lightsaber strikes.

** Yoda's fighting in the prequels is heavily inspired by {{Wuxia}} and is by far the most ridiculous, over the top, flashy and acrobatic style of any of the characters (even the ones who use the same in-universe fighting style that he does!). As well as tons of dramatic leaps and flips, it includes plenty of gratuitous spins. Other Jedi like Obi-Wan, Luke and Qui-Gon occasionally do a random 360 in the middle of a fight for sheer RuleOfCool, but don't do it constantly like Yoda does.

** All over the place in this movie. Dooku does a random frontflip before fighting Anakin, Anakin does a fancy twirl before using a brutal FinishingMove on Dooku, Grievous tries an IntimidationDemonstration of his lightsabers on Obi-Wan, and see above about Master Yoda's spin-happy fighting style. WeaponTwirling also abounds, like it does in all the prequels.

* ''{{Ninjago}}'' is this trope. The primary attack of the main characters is spinning so fast they turn into mini-tornadoes like the Tazmanian Devil. It isn't called Masters of Spinjitzu of nothing.

** He also once [[http://www.superdickery.com/worst-explanation-of-time-travel-i-ever-saw/ followed a signal into the future by spinning at SUPER super-speed]]. Which caused the comment at ''Website/{{Superdickery}}'' to [[SarcasmFailure hesitate to explain what was wrong with it]].
** There was [[http://seanbaby.com/superfriends/supermanb.htm one joke]] about Superman not arriving in time to save someone from a fire, so he covers them in barbecue sauce and flies around them fast in an attempt to "reverse the fire process."

Presumably, this trope is the case because fast-moving things are generally better than slow moving things, and circular motion allows something to accomplish this while actually remaining on-screen.
