* The ''Literature/MatadorSeries'' has sumito (a.k.a. the 97 steps), developed from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pencak_Silat Pencak Silat]] by professional fighter Lazlo Mourn in ''The Musashi Flex''. It eventually became associated with the monastic order the Siblings of the Shroud, then the Siblings taught it to Emile Khadaji in ''The Man Who Never Missed''. Khadaji in turn passed it on to the Matadors. Sumito relies heavily on footwork and positioning, with practitioners training by walking a pattern of 97 footprints stenciled onto the floor. The series includes a number of other examples as well, including oppugnate, a military mixed martial art fusing elements of boxing with bits of several other arts.

* ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'': ''Literature/ShadowsOfTheEmpire'', also by Creator/StevePerry, introduces Teräs Käsi, an art originally designed as a defense against Jedi. The art has since shown up elsewhere such as in Perry's later novel ''Literature/DeathStar'', and gets a brief mention in ''The Musashi Flex'' as a ShoutOut.

* ''Manga/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.
** Although, other than teaching powers of {{Flight}}, Crane style Kung Fu ''DOES'' exist.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''ComicBook/DungeonVerse'' has a sect of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''-type monks made of sentient elephants, whose racial martial art involves copious amounts of booze and violence, so they're known as [[{{Literature/Babar}} babarian monks]].

* In ''Comicbook/LegionOfSuperheroes'', Luornu Durgo Taine, alias Triplicate Girl ([[IHaveManyNames or Triad, or Duo Damsel, or Duplicate Girl, or...]]) was proficient in Tri-Jitsu, a martial arts form native to her homeworld of Cargg, that exploited her natural ability to split into three bodies, so she could attack from three different points in perfect unison. In one of the more recent reboots, after discovering the ability to [[MesACrowd split into unlimited duplicates of herself]], she could now move like a virtual army acting in concert.

* 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 ''{{Naruto}}'', Killer Bee uses seven swords to attack, without using his hands.
