* ''NininGaShinobuden'' parodies this; episode 11 has Sasuke using his "special attack" on an ogre. It involves lots of posing, as well as Sasuke inexplicably flying through space while [[TalkingIsAFreeAction explaining the attack]]. Then Onsokumaru tells him to keep it shorts, at which point we find out what the end result of the attack is: [[spoiler: the ogre getting stuffed in a pair of underwear filled with mustard.]]

* ''ValkyrieProfile'', max level Nibelung Valesti.
** VP was borderline on this with most finishing moves (noting a few exceptions). ''ValkyrieProfile 2'' had nearly every finishing move be like this (and twice as excessive power wise), but at least you can skip them.
** ''[[ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume Covenant of the Plume]]'' likewise allows you to skip Soul Crush animations with the press of a button.

*** The PS4 rerelease of the game has a fast-forward feature that allows players to breeze through the excessive animations.

** The fights are fast-paced in Episode 3 compared to Episode 1. On the other hand, some [[SpecialAttack special attacks]] can last a lot longer than others. Then there's the Erde Kaisers. Their sequences are a lot shorter than the original one, but Σ takes the cake by being the longest. It doesn't stop it from being [[RuleOfCool awesome]].

* Taunt Kills in TeamFortress2, which are probably the epitome of AwesomeYetImpractical, they require someone to be oblivious enough to stay ''right in front of you'' as you do it, have a loud and very distinct sound before going off and usually don't have any bonus, other than showing off, some that verge slightly less into the impractical bit include the Medic's spinal tap, which gives him a ''full ubercharge'' for pulling it off, Heavy's Showdown, which is both long-range and silent until the target's been hit, and Sniper's Skewer, which comes out unfairly fast.

* ''VideoGame/GrandiaII'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYhhO3hzCD4 has a lot of 10-second and longer attacks]].

to:

* ''VideoGame/GrandiaII'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYhhO3hzCD4 has a lot of 10-second and longer attacks]]. Even the basic lightning spell takes several seconds to show the character conjuring up balls of lightning, and them another several seconds of said balls swirling around the enemies. And these are the most basic spells, which you'll be using a lot. The camera panning over to the character performing the spell can eat up more precious time too.

* Subverted in ''NoMoreHeroes'', when Letz Shake's "Disaster Blaster" Earthquake Generator goes through the long, fancy charging-up cinematic, and then just as it's about to fire, [[spoiler:Henry appears out of nowhere and cuts Letz Shake and the Disaster Blaster to pieces.]]

* In ''DragonBallZ'', Piccolo's [[{{Kamehamehadoken}} Special Beam Cannon]] at the start of the series takes five minutes to charge. Near the end of the series [[GoldenSuperMode Super Saiyan 3]] is introduced, which can take over ten minutes to use. Worst offender of the series would have to be the [[CombinedEnergyAttack Spirit Bomb]], which can take, in some uses, ''[[UpToEleven several episodes]]'' to complete!
* In ''OnePiece'' Jinbe's [[BlowYouAway Karakusagawara]] [[MegatonPunch Seiken]]. In the manga the shock wave took four pannels to take effect after throwing the punch, in the anime it almost a full minute.
