* In Literature/{{Worm}}, where the setting is filled with people who can shoot lasers and punch through walls, Skitter can control bugs. She ends up doing this a lot, using tactics such as incapacitating an indestructible opponent with the excreted narcotic of a fallen comrade, tricking a massive foe into charging into spider silk frozen in time, and choking a woman to death by filling her lungs with bugs.

* ''Anime/Pokémon'': Ash Ketchum occasionally comes up with these in battles in order to counter a particularly tricky opponent. His most famous and popular one with the fans by far is the Counter Shield technique he developed in the Diamond & Pearl series.

* Creator/JackieChan's characters are all about this. This is because the Chan man loves action but dislikes violence so he uses his own style involving a lot of dodging and using the environment to combat his opponents.

This is because the Chan man loves action but dislikes violence so he uses his own style involving a lot of dodging and using the environment to combat his opponents. He's beaten people up with dresses, folding chairs, Legos, their own clothing, and most infamously a 10' tall stepladder.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20160701 Heroic Freestyle]] which involves a lot of improvisation and getting hit a lot. Given that the only practitioners we know of are both two-person teams (the Hetrodyne Boys and the Hoffmann brothers) it may also be based around team combat.

* Vlad Taltos from the ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' novels tends to practice this in a pinch, although he ''is'' trained in fencing and capable of deadly strikes when an opening offers itself. Rather, as an Easterner fighting seven-foot-tall Dragaerans, he needs tricks and unpredictability to avoid being overwhelmed by sheer brute force.

* ''RanmaOneHalf'': Ranma Saotome has this trope reconstructed, featuring an as-serious-as-it-can-get Anything Goes Martial Arts dojo. While the fighting style has some of its own unique characteristics, Ranma's most distinctive ability is being able to adapt with remarkable skill, something that comes in handy when forced to engage in all sorts of rule-restricted MartialArtsAndCrafts.
