* For some reason, string quartets, especially if they're under 40 or so, are very fond of having themselves photographed doing power walks, either with or without instruments.

* In ''Film/Fanboys'', the main cast do this as they prepare to break into the Skywalker Ranch. Quickly descends into parody as Hutch purposefully shoves Windows out of the line-up for no reason.

* An [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqJnA5HoW1w episode]] of the BBC's ''{{Coupling}}'' parodied the Power Walk, with the leading men strutting slowly down the sidewalk in dark suits, narrow ties, and sunglasses, to be brought to a screeching halt by their girlfriends saying, "Stop playing ''Film/ReservoirDogs''!"

* Played with in the opening to ''BreakoutKings''. The power walk starts with the five leads walking together, but then prison doors slam shut in front of the three BoxedCrook[=s=].
* In the ''Series/{{Community}}'' episode ''[[Recap/CommunityS2E04BasicRocketScience Basic Rocket Science]]'', Abed has the entire group do one in slow motion walking towards a space simulator. (Except for Pierce, who doesn't realise that the others are walking in slomo.) They end up being very late because Abed keeps making them redo it until it's sufficiently dramatic.

* Happens often in Series/MarriedWithChildren. Usually preceded by Al's CatchPhrase "Let's Rock." Sometimes results in a fight, or has music over it.
* When "the gang" got together in the Series/MyNameIsEarl Season 1 episode "Stole P's HD Cart." Quickly subverted when Randy's lunch box full of beers opens and they roll out.

* Parodied in the live-action movie of ''CromartieHighSchool''. The pre-finale PowerWalk is intercut with trucking shots of the actors simply walking in place. Taken to a ridiculous level in the opening of the anime, which has two groups of students walking right through, among other things, ''a tank''.
