** And in yet ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 1982}} another classic Supergirl story]]'', Parasite grabs Supergirl's cape and spins her around before slamming her face into a railroad track.

** 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.

* Wrestling/MitsuharuMisawa was known for twisting in midair upon connecting with his flying lariat. He also innovated the Rolling Elbow and thus popularized spinning 360 degrees before throwing a strike.
* Wrestling/ChrisHero loves the Rolling Elbow and uses countless variations. He also invented Cyclone Kill, a discus pump kick.
* Masaaki Mochizuki of Wrestling/DragonGate uses a spinning brainbuster known as the Twister as his primary finishing move. There's also a reverse brainbuster version and "Twister II", the spinning Falcon Arrow. Unrelated to the Twisters but still relevant: the [[HurricaneKick Illusion]].

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' gives us [[CuteBruiser Presea]], who wields a large ax that can be at least as large as she is. Most of her techniques involve at least one good full spin of the ax, but her advanced punishment techniques send her spinning like a top. Colette has a few attacks involving her spinning while holding out her twin chakrams. Finally, [[{{Badass}} Regal]] is a kick-based fighter with a wide range of horizontal and vertical spins, including the Crescent attacks, which make him do vertical spin kicks that ''cut.''

* In ''Discworld/NightWatch'' the incoming Patrician inquires about the possibility of getting one of those ''special'' office chairs, you know, the sort that swivel and spin. As a sort of symbol of his new-found power. His [[ObstructiveBureaucrat canny secretary]] assures him that a skilled swiveller can be there with a toolkit within the hour, sir, and your every wish to spin and swivel will be granted. This is a ShoutOut to the scene in ''Series/YesPrimeMinister'' where the incoming government minister, James Hacker, asks about getting a chair he can swivel on. [[[[ObstructiveBureaucrat Sir Humphrey Appleby]] assures him, with complete truth, that he will ensure the Minister has complete control over selection of his office furniture.
