* Due to the fact that ''BunnyMustDie'' has [[YouHaveResearchedBreathing turning around as a powerup]], it takes a few frames for her to turn around, and it feels just a bit sticky. However, turning around does make you momentarily invulnerable.
* In all {{Mario}} games, 2D or 3D, if you move in one direction and quickly slam the Control Stick in the opposite direction, Mario will skid a little; Luigi tends to skid more.
** The above also applies to all {{Sonic the Hedgehog}} games to date. Although, in the [=2D=] games at least, it's played straight if you're standing still, or moving very slowly, or if you are forced to by springs (sometimes the two close together facing each other).
*** In ''SonicUnleashed'', Sonic the Werehog not only does a full turning-around animation, but needs extra space for him to turn around in. This can result in some unintentional deaths if the player chooses to turn Sonic around when he's standing near a ledge he can't grab.

* In ''GliderPRO'', the glider goes through a few frames of spinning animation when reversing orientation. However, orientation has no mechanical importance except when shooting rubber bands.

* In the original ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'', increasing the difficulty level makes the bots capable of, among other things, turning around faster. On a moderately high level, they can do a full spin in less than a second; on the highest level (appropriately named "Godlike"), ambushing them becomes impossible as they gain [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard instant turning and a 360° field of view that goes through walls]].

* In ''VideoGame/JaggedAlliance'', characters take Time Units to turn. In ''Jagged Alliance 2'', they may automatically turn as they raise their weapon as you enter view.

* Similar to ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', ''Elasto Mania'' and its prequel had the main character along with the body of the motorbike turn although the wheels remain intact although their front wheel and rear wheel roles are reversed.

** The quick-spin was first seen in ''Resident Evil 3''. Since the series uses tank-style controls, this was quickly seen as a blessing, and every game since has implemented it (including the Gamecube remake of the first).

* Annoyingly averted in ''RuleOfRose'' where Jennifer must actually walk a small circle to turn around; turning on the spot simply isn't possible in this game. Really annoying in the Mermaid Princess bossfight where you must avoid the titular monster's corrosive vomit, and more often than not end up walking straight into it when you direct Jennifer to run away.

* In ''VideoGame/BattlefleetGothicArmada'', the huge spaceships you command definitely have turning radii, some of which are huge... But the [[SpaceElves Eldar]] have an upgrade for their ships that can allow this. Given their hit-and-run nature and relatively-fragile ships, it's quite a useful ability.

* Averted in the ''DeadliestWarrior'' videogame, to [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony's]] chagrin. The game developers actually sent him a message about his complaints, saying that you don't make instant 180 degree turns in real life, and his response was "Yes you do! If someone is stabbing you in the back, I think you turn around pretty much instantaneously!"

* In Creator/{{Jaleco}}'s ''City Connection'', it takes a few frames for the player's car to wheel itself around, but it's still improbably fast and automatic. In fact, it's still possible to execute instant 180-degree turns ''in midair''.

* ''Super {{Metroid}}'' had quite detailed animations for Samus, including turning animations for both standing up and crouching.
* ''{{Spelunky}}'' is a mixed case. While small characters turn around instantly, [[GiantMook the larger ones]] take conveniently a bit longer to turn around.

* ''SuperSmashBros'' has relatively quick turning animations, but also allows the player to execute attacks mid-turn, so the animation is mostly cosmetic. Though there are weird tricks such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yTMrFboN2I Shellshifting]]...

* Played straight in ''LeagueOfLegends'' but jarringly averted in ''DefenseOfTheAncients'' where using abilities and attacking behind you is noticeably delayed and even running away takes more time than expected, ensuring people coming from League will [[YetAnotherStupidDeath feed a lot]] at the start.
