* Used in ''JojosBizarreAdventure'' Part 3 when the heroes are preparing to dive; Joseph explains how to communicate underwater by hand signals, when [[ChivalrousPervert Polnareff]] shows a hand signal of his own... which [[TheComicallySerious Kakyoin]] casually interprets as "your panties are showing".

* Eddie's orders to his troops in ''BrutalLegend'' all have associated hand signals that appear on the orders cross. He even goes through them in the JustifiedTutorial: he's allegedly teaching the somewhat thick Headbangers what the signals mean, but he's also teaching the player. Stop is the military raised fist. For follow, he raises his ax. Charge is, appropriately, throwing "the horns".
* In ''MetalGearSolid4,'' you can sometimes spot a PMC squad leader giving hand signals to direct his troops around an area. [[GeniusBonus Savvy players will notice]] that, in higher difficulties where the troops operate with more realistic tactics, the gestures actually indicate what they're going to do next, letting the player anticipate or track their movement.

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'' a character makes a handsign used by the rebels of a past revolution to signalize his readyness to take part in another revolution. They need to use hand signals because ... well, they're at the court of the very king they want to start a revolution against.

* ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'': While they normally have walkie-talkies in the cars to communicate with the bad drivers, in recent seasons Andrew has supplemented this with a hand signal -- both arms over his head to form a circle means "course is clear, start your test run". Using the hand signal also means the bad drivers aren't juggling walkie-talkie and steering wheel when they start driving.
