* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', this just ''isn't done'' by working shinobi, but Konohamaru and friends do it all the time as little kids playing {{Ninja}} pre-TimeSkip. GenreSavvy may be involved.

* ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'' shows Tiffany, vampire-slayer-in-training, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/chapter_2_-_store-bought in the important act of choosing the catchphrase]] after she stumbled on the vampire who once bitten (and thus accidentally revived) her. From her choice it's pretty evident that she's GenreSavvy. From the rest of this comic it's pretty evident that she's rather WrongGenreSavvy...

* The Children in ''ZettaiKarenChildren'' usually perform a roll call when their {{power limiter}}s are released. The roll call is usually relevant to the situation and frequently comes with heroic posing and colored smoke. Variations of it are frequent, such as adding "... and Wild Cat" to the end when Naomi joins, and Aoi doing one of these when she's on a mission solo.

* ''Manga/YuGiOh'' tends to feature this when the God Cards are summoned. This was featured much less in ''GX'', but ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' reintroduced this with the speeches all the characters give when they Synchro Summon a Monster (Yusei: "Clustering [x] will call upon a [y]; become the path of light it shines upon!"), although the [[FourKidsEntertainment "dub"]][[note]][[{{Macekre}} If one can call it that...]][[/note]] tends to reduce this to a simple {{Catchphrase}} like "Let's rev it up!"

* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
** It subverts the actual line with the [[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce Mooninites parody]] in Episode 34.
---> "In the name of the moon..."\\
"...Better recognize!"
** Episode 47 has "Team [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]" (with the gratuitous addition of Meowth) doing a parody of the Team Rocket speech.
* Spoofed in, of course, ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged''.
--> "In the name of the moon, I like wiener schnitzel!"
* And in ''Script/ShadowjackWatchesSailorMoon'', she eventually adopts the style of Darkwing Duck. "I am the terror that trips in the night! I am the unacceptable bill in the vending machine of crime!" There are other variations as well, such as when they break into a Team Rocket intro... that changes nothing except becoming "profess the virtues of truth and love" and manages to make perfect sense. They even have a cat!

* Example (and inversion): in ''Film/PulpFiction'', Jules Winfield's (mis)quoting the Biblical book of Ezekiel before pulling the trigger.
* Spoofed in the film ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', where ClassicallyTrainedExtra Sir Alexander Dane (played by Alan Rickman) is tired of his character's CatchPhrase "By Grabthar's hammer...", even though the fans can't get enough of it.
** Until at a tragic moment, he bursts into THE WORDS before he can stop himself.

* In Creator/DianeDuane's ''YoungWizards'' and ''Feline Wizardry'' books, protocol normally requires a similarly ritualized challenge upon meeting the adversarial [[{{Satan}} Lone Power]]: "Eldest, Fairest and Fallen, greetings and defiance!" Oh, and always remember to ask the Transcendent Pig the meaning of life when you meet him (the older wizards hope that one day he'll just answer reflexively).

It is the Hour of the Cat." However, this particular turn of phrase apparently doesn't occur in the other books.
* In ''[[{{Literature/MGP}} Magical Girl Policy]]'', a need to monologue seems to be built into the Spirit Guard's transformation.
