* 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 VideoGame/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]]).

* Comicbook/{{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!]]

* TropeNamers: Ryu and Ken from the ''Street Fighter'' games. Note that it can also be subjected to SpellMyNameWithAnS, with it also being written/typed out as "Shōryūken" or more simply as "Shouryuuken".

*''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'': Used by the {{Trope Codifier}}s themselves. First seen at the beginning of the film, during the flashback of Ryu's fateful bout with Sagat. Ken administers his against T. Hawk, when he makes the mistake of [[BullyingADragon picking a fight with Ken]] and wouldn't take "no" for answer.

** these return in the Xbox One version along with new users in the form of Orchid(notable in that she uses her knee), Shadow Jago who has a completely vertical one, and ARIA(though only in blade mode and using light punch). These all tend to be the character's most damaging combo finishers as well.

* Doomfist from {{Overwatch}} has a Rising Uppercut. No guesses as to what this does.

* Doomfist from {{Overwatch}} has a Rising Uppercut. No guesses as to what this does. What makes this example stand out from the other games is that Overwatch is a competitive FPS rather than a fighting game.

** ProjectM, a mod of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. Brawl'', turns Lucario's up-smash into an aura Shoryuken. It's the only smash attack in the game that ends in midair (being a Shoryuken), with the purpose of comboing into other moves.

** 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.
