In Japan this is considered a somewhat milder insult than in the West. As a result this shows up a lot more often than one would expect.



* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': It's apparently considered a somewhat milder insult in Japan than in the West; it shows up in anime and manga quite a lot.

** The gesture fits very well with Law's defiant personality. [[spoiler:When he is about to be shot (again) by former mentor/current ArchEnemy Doflamingo, the man offers to allow Law to die via the Ope-Ope Fruit's DangerousForbiddenTechnique in exchange for one wish. Law's response is to troll him by seemingly agreeing, then demanding the impossible such as the revival of Doflamingo's brother (who Law idolized) and licking the assholes of every single citizen of the country Doflamingo took over a decade prior (which, disregarding sanitary reasons, Doflamingo's pride would never allow), and ''then'' taunting him one last time by stating that he'll never beat the Straw Hats or get Caesar back. All of this was ''before'' Law gave him the finger as one final "screw you" to his former boss]]. The anime again omits this, in favor of [[spoiler:a montage of the many "miracles" that the Straw Hats have accomplished up to that point]].
