* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': In the Unlimited Blade Works route, this is how Shirou manages to do battle against Gilgamesh. Usually, Gilgamesh simply [[StormOfBlades spams magic swords]] at his opponent in such numbers that they are overwhelmed, but Shirou's unique brand of sword-creation magic ([[spoiler:plus skills he subconsciously absorbed from Archer, his future self]]) allows him to spam equal numbers of swords right back, cancelling Gilgamesh's barrage out. With that advantage removed, he's able to catch Gilgamesh off-guard and defeat him before Gilgamesh pulls out [[StoryBreakerPower Ea]].

* In the first ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI Kingdom Hearts]]'' game, this trope is your best defensive option before you get Guard (and depending on your choices in the tutorial, that'll take a while). Landing an attack so that the overhead swing of Sora's Keyblade connects with your opponent's attack is the only way to block an attack (and thus earn Tech Points) without that ability; sword-wielding bosses like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Tidus]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Leon]], and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]] often employ overhead swings of their own to better fit the trope.

* Subverted in ''Anime/HikaruNoGo''. One player gets the brilliant idea of challenging TheAce by taking the first stone (putting it in the center of the board, which has no mirror spot) and then mirroring Akira's actions on the Go board. Akira figures out what he's doing almost immediately and promptly sets a trap to capture his pieces in the center.
