* The demon prince Raid in ''Anime/MahoujinGuruGuru'' is a MagicKnight who can perform some potent magic via dancing. Unfortunately, he's BlessedWithSuck as his Magic Dances are all really ''really'' stupid. To a lesser extent, female lead Kukuri occasionally incorporates dancing in the drawing of her [[GeometricMagic magic circles]] and it's implied doing so is a natural element of her magic.

Her dances all revolve around wrecking the enemy's status, as a foil to Hurdy's [[MagicMusic Bard]] class, which improves status. Both of these are {{Call Back}}s to the original ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' classes of the same name, with similar abilities.
