*** [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Yun and Yang]] have a handplant rising kick that also functions the same. At least until ''3rd Strike'', where [[DivergentCharacterEvolution Yang started to roll before unleashing the move so it became a ranged attack.]] *** Chun-Li's Tenshoukyaku works like that as well, except it goes up sweeping the opponent with a series of kicks. ** Cody has his own uppercut called Criminal Upper that creates a vortex of wind; while he can be hit out of it, once the vortex is out, nothing can get past it until it dissipates.

He also doesn't leave the ground for his version.

* ''VideoGame/BattleCircuit'' has two out of the five playable characters that can do this. Cyber Blue's uppercut is a corkscrew version called Hyper Tornado, and Yellow Iris has a clawed version called Ariel Dance.

* In ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage 2'' and ''3'', Axel ends his RapidFireFisticuffs style forward-special with one of these. His "Bare Knuckle"/"Grand Upper" blitz attack is another rising uppercut, but doesn't have a jump component to it. In the beta version of the second game, he had a Shoryuken and a HurricaneKick as standalone moves.

** [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf]]'s Dark Dive is a leaping grab that ends in an uppercut regardless of whether it landed. One of its custom move variations, Dark Fists, is a more archetypical example; it purely consists of two much more powerful uppercuts. ** [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Zero Suit Samus]]' Boost Kick in the fourth game is a kick-based variation of this type of move.

* The Hiryuu Shouten Ha, an ancient Joketsuzoku technique in ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'', is basically a spinning uppercut that rises from a very low crouch (which doesn't actually hit the opponent). It's characterized by creating a temperature clash between hot and cold {{Battle Aura}}s that, using the uppercut as a vector, creates wind blasts of varying intensity (from "flinging the enemy off his feet" to "raging tornado that sticks around for several minutes.")
