** Schneizel does this while he's telling the 'truth' about Lelouch to the Black Knights.
** Lelouch also does this when he's giving a ReasonYouSuckSpeech to [[spoiler:Nunnally]] - though there's a shot of his hands trembling a little, a giveaway of just how hard it was for him.

** Lelouch also does this when he's giving a ReasonYouSuckSpeech to [[spoiler:Nunnally]] - though there's a shot of his hands trembling a little, a giveaway of showing just how hard it was for him.him. The series does this a lot, showing a lot of his emotion through the tension in his hands.
* In ''[[Anime/{{K}} K: Return of Kings]]'', Munakata does this during his argument with Fushimi, before [[spoiler: Fushimi fake-defects to Jungle]]. You don't see much of his face for most of the time that he's shown - just his hands, tensing in this position, tip-to-tip (not by his face). The tension in his hands shows that he's feeling something more than he's letting on - [[spoiler: before the plan is revealed, it could be that]] he's angrier at Fushimi than he seems. [[spoiler: After the truth is revealed, and particularly after what he tells Yata outside of the bar, if you go back and watch it, you can see that he's actually ''worried'' about Fushimi]].

* ''TheSimpsons'': Mr. Burns's signature line "Excellent" is usually delivered in this pose (the tip-to-tip version), though he is usually tapping fingertips, not clasping.

* The comic book adaptation of TheThrawnTrilogy has Grand Admiral Thrawn doing this often. That, or [[RightHandCat cradling and stroking a creature]] that is probably intended to be a ysalamiri. Notably he doesn't do much of either in the novels, but Magnificent Bastards steeple, and Thrawn is a Magnificent Bastard, so "steepled" is the second-most common way his hands are drawn in the comic, in other official art, and in fanart. The ''most'' common way his hands are positioned is undeniably clasped behind his back, a gesture of restraint. Notably you can't clasp your hands behind your back while sitting, and steepling just looks stupid when you're standing up.

-->''Prince Shinji kneeled before the throne of his father, King Gendo of Tokyo-3, who sat on his great basalt and onyx throne, his gloved fingers pursed to form a triangle.''
