JohnWoo pretty much invented it in [[TheNewestOnesInTheBook 1986]] with ''A Better Tomorrow'', which launched the HeroicBloodshed genre in Hong Kong. [[FollowTheLeader Shortly afterwards, these sequences began popping up everywhere]]. Chow Yun-Fat, who became an iconic image with [[GunsAkimbo a gun in each hand]], starred in most of Woo's later films.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' has shades of this as well, with the game's generous autoaim and [[CombatParkour "sideflip-to-dodge"]] mechanic.

* In ''ChampionsOnline,'' when you combine Munitions attacks with the Acrobatics travel power you get this. This is partly because it's an easy power to leave on all the time, so you tend to enter battle with it still activated.

* In the beginning flashback sequence of ''Anime/AfroSamurai'', Justice duels with Afro's father. Justice's weapons are a pair of six-shooters while Afro's father wields the BFS that Afro wields in the present. Afro's father may be able to [[ImplausibleFencingPowers deflect Justice's bullets with his sword,]] but Justice uses his guns to parry Afro's father's attacks and manages to do quite well in close combat with him.
