* Starlight Breaker of ''[[LyricalNanoha Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha]]'''s titular character, which generally caps off the big battle of the season. Since it gathers residue magic from the environment, the later it's used in a magic battle, the harder it hits. Interestingly, each time Nanoha uses Starlight Breaker in the anime, it's always a stronger variation of the one she used before.

** Wrestling/MickFoley, in his non-Cactus Jack personas of Dude Love and Mankind, would parody other wrestlers' signature moves. The most famous would be Dude Love's "Sweet Shin Music," a parody of Wrestling/ShawnMichaels' "Sweet Chin Music" (a superkick to the jaw). Dude Love would do Shawn's trademark stomp, and then kick the opponent in the shins. When the opponent doubled over in pain, he would execute a double-arm DDT.

And then there's "Mr. Socko": Basically Mankind's former finisher the mandible claw, only with an old sock with a face drawn on it put on his hand beforehand.

*** Naruto later upgrades this to the Rasenshuriken by infusing it with wind to improve its cutting power. Then [[SerialEscalation]] kicks in, creating ever-stronger Rasenshuriken variants like [[AllYourPowersCombined Sage Art: Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken]] and Six Paths: Ultra-Big Ball Rasenshuriken.

* In {{Kinnikuman}} every wrestler has at least one finishing move that is supposed to end the fight as soon as it's done. The Kinniku Buster is just one of these skills as he has made many variations to it to fit the situation.

** ''GurrenLagann'''s famous Giga Drill Break([[SpellMyNameWithAnS er]]). In the dub, Kamina and Simon do refer it as Finishing Move (''Hissatsu'', meaning Certain Kill in Japanese) the first time they perform the move.

Added DiffLines:

* A variation in the web series ''WebVideo/CriticalRole''. DM Matthew Mercer allows the player who gets the killing blow on the boss (or the last remaining opponent on the field) to describe the final attack, leading to many a Crowning Moment of Awesome. Players and viewers alike practically live for the phrase [[CatchPhrase "How do you want to do this?"]].

*** An interesting subversion occurred when the heels of the WCCW figured out that they could block the Claw TheThreeStooges Style by putting their hand in front of their forehead, which is when the Von Erichs unleashed the ABDOMINAL CLAW!

* Another ''Warhammer'' game, ''[[VideoGame/Warhammer40000SpaceMarine Space Marine]]'', uses ''VideoGame/GodOfWar''-style finishing moves extensively. The main way to replenish health is not to [[TakeCover hide behind a wall]] [[RegeneratingHealth and wait]] but to grab your most [[ChainsawGood vicious]] [[AnAxeToGrind melee]] [[DropTheHammer weapon]], [[MultiMookMelee wade into the thick of combat]], and [[{{Gorn}} personally rip the Emperor's foes to pieces!]]

* In the ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' series, when the circle symbol appears above an enemy that you've been giving the beatdown, it's time for Kratos to finish that enemy in exceedingly brutal fashion. Kratos's most brutal and badass kills are reserved for the many bosses he faces.

** In the 2016 ContinuityReboot, Finishing Moves called "Glory Kills" are a mainstream part of the game, and in fact recommended; to survive, you need the ammo and health packs (among other loot) that enemies drop on death, and a demon taken down with a Glory Kill drops more loot than one that you just shot to death. In the same vein, using the chainsaw not only provides a gory OneHitKill, but also results in even ''more'' loot than an ordinary Glory Kill.
