* In ''Comicbook/LegionOfSuperheroes'', Luornu Durgo Taine, alias Triplicate Girl ([[IHaveManyNames or Triad, or Duo Damsel, or Duplicate Girl, or...]]) was proficient in Tri-Jitsu, a martial arts form native to her homeworld of Cargg, that exploited her natural ability to split into three bodies, so she could attack from three different points in perfect unison. In one of the more recent reboots, after discovering the ability to [[MesACrowd split into unlimited duplicates of herself]], she could now move like a virtual army acting in concert.

* Shinogi Kanno of ''BakiTheGrappler'' practices a "cord-cutting" style of karate which allows him to sever his opponent's nerves and tendons, crippling or even blinding them with a single blow.
* This is RanmaOneHalf's bread and butter. The number of martial arts styles that ''aren't'' a ridiculously weaponized version of something completely unthreatening (dinner parties, for example) could be counted on one hand.

* The non-Discworld book ''Literature/JohnnyAndTheBomb'' strongly implies that involuntary time-traveller Johnny Maxwell has the secret of slicing time, and can manifest this in need. He certainly manages a life-saving run in an otherwise impossibly short time.

* The Creator/JackieChan movie ''Snake in the Eagle's Shadow'' has him as a bullied janitor who gets taught Snake Fist by an old master. When the old man is menaced by a master of the rival school Eagle Claw, Jackie steps in but gets his butt kicked. He ends up inventing his own martial art by mimicking a cat fighting a snake, complete with meowing and washing his face. At the end of the film the old master asks what he plans on calling his style and he responds with a TitleDrop.

* Author/RobertRankin gives us ''Dimac'' "The world's Deadliest Martial Art", Basically, what would happen if those mail order "Become a Kung Fu Master books advertised in comics really did [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin]]. You get to do moves that require Olympic class gymnastics and [[WireFu wires]]. The particular form practised by Hugo Rune consists of moves all alliteratively named after the male organs of fearsome animals, ''The Lunge of the Leopard's Lingam, The Twist of the Tiger's Todger, The Donk of the Dark Dragon's Dongler'' etc.
