* Nagi of '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''.

** Gohan uses one on Perfect Cell; when it shows up in video games, it's even named "''Ryushouken''", using the exact same kanji as "''Shoryuken''" but swapped around (the English name is "Soaring Dragon Strike").

[[spoiler:Almost. Einhart lashed out with version of the Shoryuken and its her own SignatureMove.

The names of her Accel Smash and Exceed Smash are a DoubleKnockout]]homage to her mother's Device's Axel Mode and Exceed Mode.

*** [[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.

]] For Yun's version, it's the Nishoukyaku (Two Soaring Legs), and for Yang onwards and for only him, it's the Senkyuutai (Drilling Bow Thigh), which is one of many other martial arts moves used by other fighting game characters.
*** Chun-Li's Tenshoukyaku (Ascension Legs) works like that as well, except it goes up sweeping the opponent with a series of upward spinning 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.
