* In ''OnePiece'' Jinbei the Whale Shark Fishman use a roundhouse kick against [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Wadatsumi's fist]]. In short, he manages to kick back and ''flip over'' a giant the size of a building. * In ''RosarioToVampire'', Inner Moka, a vampire feared even by other monsters, often uses a roundhouse kick. In addition to being badass, it makes for a significant portion of the show's fanservice, as her DangerouslyShortSkirt guarantees a PantyShot.

* The 2D ''MortalKombat'' games have one of these for every character, executed by holding back when doing a high kick, that does decent damage and great knockaway. Rain from ''Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3'' gets special mention for using one so powerful that the opponent flies off the screen and ends up behind him.

* The ''StreetFighter'' series has characters that do this as their strong kick, including Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Sagat. ** Many of {{Capcom}}'s early fighting games actually used "Roundhouse" as a universal term for what is now known as the "hard kick", regardless if they were actual roundhouses or not.

* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'', this is the standard animation for human rogues (other races kick differently) using the Kick ability (which doesn't do any damage but interrupts the target's spellcasting.) With the advent of the [[BareFistedMonk Monk]] class, the Blackout Kick uses a similar animation for all races and is a bread-and-butter damage dealing ability the monks use when fancier moves are on cooldown. Male Blood Elves also use a head-height roundhouse kick for some specific action animations, such as commanding a strong-but-stupid henchman to retrieve things in some quests.

* In ''VideoGame/GoldenAxe III'', this is Sarah Barn's Forward+Attack+Jump attack. It can be blocked, but it is fast and the single most damaging move in her movelist. * ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}} and the Pirate's Curse'' has the Heavy Kick move. It deals more damage than a single, fully-upgraded hair-whip, but its slightly shorter range and long wind-up time from the spinning animation means Shantae will deal more damage with her faster hair-whips in the long run. [[AC:Web Comics]] * In ''TsunamiChannel'', [[http://www.tsunamichannel.com/index.php?date=2003-10-13&comic=MaMi Magical Mina actually deflects a punch with one]].

In RealLife, such a move is CoolButInefficient. A proper roundhouse kick is spinning in just a partial circle, to give the kick some extra force, but without telegraphing the move too much. There is a risk of the opponent dodging the kick or even grabbing the leg if he is skillful enough, but a proper roundhouse kick is one of the faster kicks in martial arts and can be launched without a chambering motion without much loss of speed for force, which makes such a dodge or kick less likely.
