* Another example of "character who has no bones and is therefore invincible but shows being invincible by cracking his neck despite having no bones after being beaten up" is in ''UltimateAvengers 2'', when the alien Nazi shapeshifter (who is kind of a colony of slugs) does this after falling from a great height.

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' Venom Snake can "Knock" by twisting his prosthetic wrist around, causing it to crack loudly and spark, drawing attention towards his location. Diamond Dogs that take over strike missions in Big Boss's place can do the same thing... and it looks like they're cracking their wrists so loudly a soldier could hear.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Bizarrogirl}}'', ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} cracks her knuckles -and makes her eyes glow to reinforce the effect- when she warns a monster that it can choose between spitting its victim out voluntarily or getting him cut out of its insides.

* In the ''Film/XMen'' film series, it appears a side effect of mutant healing factors is mutant joint-cracking, with Wolverine and Lady Deathstrike really going at this trope for all it's worth. Deathstrike really crunches those fingers of hers. Of course, they don't have to worry about arthritis. Justified in Deathstrike's case, since her claws are inside her fingers. They need to be kept loose, and are probably sore quite often. Bonus points for adding a metal clanking noise when they crack their knuckles, hinting at their adamantium skeletons.

* Random Task in the first ''Film/AustinPowers'' movie does this. Largely as a parody of Odd Job from ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', the ultimate [[TheStoic Stoic]].

* Uncle Andrew does this in ''TheMagiciansNephew'', when he's cornered the children in his attic room. Interestingly, he doesn't show any inclination to start a (physical) fight; the cracking seems to have been designed to make him more intimidating (and generally creepy).
