* The Japanese cop show ''G-Men '75'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOMboRYbvro did this in the opening]], complete with [[FramedFaceOpening Framed Face Openings]] of every character, plus the names of their actors/actresses written in Japanese and English below. They also had to end up re-shooting the sequence several times during the run when the cast got updated.

** ''YuYuHakushoAbridged'' did a parody of this -- the characters freeze at the end of their power walk (set to the same tune) and Hinageshi screams "Again!" Hiei shuts her down by bluntly saying "No."

* In ''Toys/TheGrosseryGang'' webseries, during "The Grossery Gang Movie", it us used by the powered up Grosseries and lampshaded, calling it "the heroic slo-mo walk".

* Done in ''Manga/TwentiethCenturyBoys'' and in TheMovie thereof, [[spoiler: as Kenji and his friends head out to fight the giant robot]]. Definitely of Hero Shot variety.

* ''Film/HotRod'' has one with Rod and his crew to the music of John Farnham's "You're The Voice". It starts off playing it straight (well, as straight as Andy Samberg plays anything), and becomes slightly over-the-top once hundreds of townspeople start following them [[spoiler: before it's subverted once a mass riot starts.]]

* ''Film/SororityRow'': Done by the surviving girls at the end of the film. Bonus points for walking away from [[spoiler: ''a burning mansion'']].
* Done twice in ''Film/ThisIsEngland''. The first time is very light-spirited, highlighting Shaun's acceptance into Woody's gang of skinheads. This was in [[TheEighties the '80s]], just before neo-Nazism and racism infiltrated the skinhead movement. The second time is much darker in tone, when Shaun [[spoiler: joins Combo's gang of skinheads, who are much more violent and racist than Woody's.]]

** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'': The Guardians do this after the LockAndLoadMontage as they prepare for the assault on the ''Dark Aster''. Unfortunately Peter Quill takes the time to pick his nose, Rocket to keep his outfit from riding up his crotch, and the slow-motion pacing makes Gamora actually ''yawn''.

*** In the [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 sequel]], we're treated to this trope played straight, courtesy of Rocket and Yondu shortly after [[spoiler:Yondu reacquires control of his [[TrickArrow yaka arrow.]]]].

* The BBC series The Planets (About, surprisingly enough, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the planets]]), has a shot of several planetary geologists before they talk about some of Mars's features.

** Done straight in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Fool for Love." After Spike kills the Chinese slayer, we get several shots of him, Angel, Drusilla and Darla walking, tall and hard, with lots of fire in the background. Spike even skips over a random piece of debris, adding a sadistic child-like glee to his triumph.
** Lampshaded with a song in Once More, With Feeling, during 'Walk Through the Fire.'

* Averted (at least in part) in the film ''Film/TheAdventuresOfBuckarooBanzaiAcrossThe8thDimension''. The end credits roll features Team Banzai gathering together ([[spoiler:even the member who died during the film]]) and marching in unison to the peppy "Team Banzai March". Not a true power walk in that the team walks across the screen from right to left, there is not a dramatic shot of the team walking towards the camera, much of the sequence focuses in on individual members of Team Banzai, and the tempo of the entire sequence is a bit too peppy to be as dramatic as a power walk should be. Hell, several members of Team Banzai start spontaneously ''dancing,'' including Buckaroo himself.
