** An old standard of Kung Fu movies is to have a group from a rival school (often Japanese) come in and start disrespecting the Hero's school and his recently deceased master, maybe making a pass at his girlfriend. ''Fist of Fury'', which uses the Chin Woo school as a basis, has a scene where this occurs and we get Lee standing there, taking the insults but with a knuckle crack to show how angry he is getting and to step up the tension.

* A deleted scene from ''Spider-Man: The Movie: The Game'' has Shocker doing this. With no sound, oddly.
* The character select screen in ''WarhammerOnline'' has the Chaos Chosen flex his fingers and clench his fist in a soundless example of the trope, but the Orc Choppa simply grabs his own head and noisily cracks his neck.

* Shepard invokes this trope in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' a lot, usually as warm up in order to extract information from a hesitant informant. Unsurprisingly, if you understand anything about [[{{Badass}} Shepard]], it works. One volus was savvy enough that all s\he had to do was crack knuckles to comply.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'': Arc-Gurren Lagann cracks its neck shortly after its first transformation, and immediately before wiping out a swathe of Mugann. That's right, a ''city-sized mecha cracks its neck.''
