* Ice missiles in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3'' act like this, when they freeze something sharp ice crystals from in a sphere then snap onto the target. Definitely a stock visual, but I'm not sure it has any other significance than that. ** Ice Bullets in the first ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' have a similar visual effect. ** Want a probable physics answer? The explosion of the missile releases the ice shards at the point of impact into a small sphere area, and then the, uh...the ''gravity'' from the missile explosions makes the shards snap to the target. So, uh, the second part is kind of flimsy, but... *** Let's just [[HandWave say]] it's a vaccuum created from the blast.

* Kohr-Ah Marauders in ''StarControl'' send out rotating blades that can do this--but it takes some skill to position them well.

* ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'' added the Blade Vortex spell in version 2.1. Each casting creates an ethereal blade that orbits the caster for five seconds and damages any enemies it passes through. With enough bonuses to casting speed and effect duration one can have up to fifty blades at a time, shredding anything that comes close.

* The Patras in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' are giant winged eyes with a bunch of smaller winged eyes circling around. ** Ghirahim in ''SkywardSword'' will occasionally summon rhomboid blades in a ring around himself, which then fly toward Link one at a time and must be deflected or dodged. Later, he creates a similar ring around Link himself, who must use the right kind of SpinAttack to take them all out or they'll simultaneously converge on him.

"How did we miss?" We didn't. I see it right there.
* How did we miss ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''? Archer is, of course, the master of the technique.

* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 3'''s Vergil, in [[HarderThanHard Dante Must Die]] mode and the Special Edition, can make his magic summoned swords encircle him, hitting all enemies that are too close. They break after a few hits though. They can and, for the boss version, always get repurposed as FlechetteStorm after a short while. ** He also does this as Nelo Angelo during the final showdown with Dante in the original ''DevilMayCry'', often summoning them around Dante before cutting loose. It is by far his deadliest attack.

* Similarly, the Earth Daggers spell from ''{{Earthdawn}}'' summons a volley of pointy crystal daggers, which home in unerringly on the target. * So many ''DungeonsAndDragons'' [[strike:powers]] spells.
