** And yet another ''X'' series example: in ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'', Magma Dragoon uses this as an attack, even yelling "Shoryuken!" while doing it. If you have collected the appropriate armor pieces, you can charge Dragoon's weapon and do a (rather impressive) Shoryuken, complete with Rising Fire's upward flame projectile at the end. This also happens to be [[spoiler:the weakness of Sigma's first form in the final battle (although the normal version of Rising Fire actually deals '''more'' damage to Sigma)]].

** There also exists the [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Metsu Shoryuken]]. It is the reason Sagat sports that scar on his chest, as Ryu, during the finals of the [[VideoGame/StreetFighterI First World Warrior Tournament]], succumbed to his desire to win and was overcome by the [[KillingIntent Satsui no Hadou]], resulting in him rising up to strike Sagat as the Thai warrior was in the process of helping Ryu up after pinning him. The move is available to Ryu in both ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Street Fighter Alpha 3]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Super Street Fighter IV]]'' as a weaker/stronger version of the Shin Shoryuken.

* ''Manga/{{Keijo}}'' has an instance of this being performed with [[TorpedoTits breasts]]; the attack is called "Shoryupai"[[note]]"Rising Dragon Breasts"[[/note]] in Japanese and "Shoryu[[{{Pun}} cans]]" [[{{Woolseyism}} in English]].

* While [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=394567 Epic Confrontation]] depicts a standing uppercut rather than a leaping one, it arguably still counts [[StealthPun as he is punching a dragon]]

* Nagi of 'Manga/'Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' literally [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punches out The Mage Of Beginnings]] with one at the end of the Ala Rubra movie that Jack Rakan showed. Considering all the FightingGame references in the series, it may be a ShoutOut to ''StreetFighter''.

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}: I [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/21765.html?#cutid1 once did this]] to Shadowcat (as seen in the image links) in the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' comics. [[CallingYourAttacks While shouting "Shoryuken!"]] for added fun. All just to rile {{Wolverine}} into fighting me. [[ShoutOut The artist must be a fanboy!]]

* Franchise/SpiderMan (Spider Sting), ComicBook/CaptainAmerica (Stars & Stripes), {{Wolverine}} (Tornado Claw), ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} (Gene Splice), and [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Cable]] (Psimitar) all possess Shoryuken in the various CapcomVsWhatever games. Stars & Stripes is unique in that if Captain America does it without his shield, it does multiple hits (except in VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3); Gene Splice and Tornado Claw function like Ken's Shinryuken super move (mash the buttons for more hits); Scimitar becomes a projectile once Cable hits the top of his jump; and Spider Sting is the same thing as [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry's Power Dunk]] (hit the attack button again to [[MeteorMove punch the opponent back into the ground]]).

** And then after a long time of SuspiciouslySpecificDenial, [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]] himself shows up as a DLC character in the latest ''Smash''. In addition to having the Shoryuken proper as a special move fittingly (and which can be executed with the SRK motion for increased damage) his [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] is the Shin Shoryuken if triggered right up against an opponent.
