* The AwesomeButImpractical nature of this move is {{discussed}} in ''Series/BurnNotice'' when Michael, playing a [[TheMafiya Russian mobster]], has to fake a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown against his brother Nate, playing a government agent holding Michael and a human trafficker prisoner. While delivering the roundhouse kick to Nate's shoulder, Michael explains in his customary voiceover that the move is showy but probably survivable (Nate is knocked out of sight of the trafficker and ends up with a couple cracked ribs).

* 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.
