* Tor, encountered in both ''Literature/PhoenixRising'' and the Literature/JasonWood stories. It includes tricks like turning invisible and killing demons with your bare hands. And that's only halfway through the art.

** The number of Fantastic Fighting Styles just go on and on and would take way too long to list them all.

Added DiffLines:

** Luke Skywalker's style, on the other hand, is all self-taught and far more heavy-handed than the more graceful moves seen in the prequel movies. It lacks acrobatics, doesn't use flourishes, and focuses more on power than elegance. By extension, all the lightsaber fighting in ''The Force Awakens'', where the Jedi styles of lightsaber fighting are pretty much long-forgotten, use many of the same kinds of techniques while still being unique. [[spoiler: Rey's]] style is more like fighting with a [[spoiler: staff]] than a sword, for example, and [[spoiler: Finn's]] style is noticeably direct.

* From ''{{Gunnm}}'' (''Battle Angel Alita''), Panzer Kunst and Ahato Mastarday spring to mind. Not to mention the thousands of sects of space karate, like Tohji's Electromagnetic Karate in Last Order.
* From ''{{Naruto}}'', Killer Bee uses seven swords to attack, without using his hands.

* ''DragonBall'' has the [[KamehameHadoken Turtle]] and [[{{Flight}} Crane]] Schools of Martial Arts, and while animal-named fighting styles exist in the real world, ones where a KamehameHadoken is the ultimate move... not so much.

*Virtually every {{fighting game}} made has at least a few of its characters using fictitious martial art forms, such as:
**''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'' has Kyokushin style Karate, which is used by it's protagonist, Yuka Takuchi, and her {{best friend}}/[[FriendlyRival sparring partner]], Satomi Yajima.
**''Franchise/TheKingOfFighters'': Hoo boy. So far there's:
**Kyo, Iori, and Chizuru all use fictionalized martial art forms that draw loose inspiration from the famous Orochi Legend.
***Hyakkyoku Seiken which is utilized by Terry Bogard and Geese Howard, both of ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' fame.
***Terry's brother, Andy, originally used Koppo-ken, but switched to Shiranui style ninjutsu (along with Mai) beginning in ''Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory''.
***[[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting The Sakazaki Family]] (Ryo, Yuri, and Takuma) are all practictioners of Kyokugen-ryuu Karate. While Robert is FamedInStory as being the first foreigner to ever practice ''and master'' the style.
***[[VideoGame/IkariWarriors The Ikari Team]] is said to be using Commando Sambo, except their version of it includes pyrotechnic powers.



* Practically every single FightingGame ever has at least one or two fictitious fighting styles; sometimes a game has nothing but those.

* Cole on ''{{Tracker}}'' had a martial-arts fighting style that relied on both his and the fugitives' ability to move faster-than-human, and sometimes made use of Cole's hyperspeed ability for brief periods.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/AndrzejSapkowski's ''Literature/TheWitcher'' novel series features the eponymous monster hunters, Geralt in particular, using supremely sharp claymores of either steel or silver (depending on the opponent) in sword arts relying on speed and fast footwork. These are combined with carefully managed nutrition during adolescence and mutagens and potions that further improve the witcher's abilities, which usually means any given witcher is the most lethal swordsman in the room. ''Literature/BloodOfElves'' covers witcher training with Geralt's foster daughter Ciri, showing her doing things such as running an obstacle course through the woods and practicing sword moves atop a "comb", a balance-training device made of several flexible sticks mounted horizontally at one end (with the trainee standing on the end that hangs out in the air).

** While discussing the sword styles, witcher swordmaster Lambert also comments that the higher fragility of the silver sword [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells used to kill some monsters]] requires modifications to the sword arts, namely less parrying and blocking and more use of footwork to dodge incoming attacks. While the game averts BreakableWeapons, the rest of this statement [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration is reflected in gameplay]], with separate [[SkillScoresAndPerks perk trees]] for steel and silver swords.
