* ''Manga/TigerMask'' has a few: apart from the real-world wrestlers, the various original characters tend to have a signature move that often doubles as FinishingMove. For his own, our protagonist has four of them: the Backdrop (a real world wrestling move that he adopted as his FinishingMove at the start of his HeelFaceTurn and never fully abandoned), the Super Tiger Drop (his first original finisher, originally tested on a bear. It worked), the Fujiyama Tiger Breaker (created to replace the Super Tiger Drop after Mr. Chi showed to the world how you counter it) and the Tiger V (his final finisher, created to take on Miracle 3 who could counter the Fujiyama Tiger Breaker).

Added DiffLines:

* As the sequel of the ''Tiger Mask'' anime, ''Anime/TigerMaskW'' has a few:
** The German Suplex is the signature move of the tiger-themed wrestlers, with almost all of them using it at least once.
** Yellow Devil has the Devil Crush and especially the Devil Tornado, a Tornado Chop used wearing gloves with sharpened nails. [[spoiler:When the Devil Tornado fails to draw blood it's the first sign that the Yellow Devil on the ring is a fake, and the first move The Third uses after being confirmed as Yellow Devil with a new mask is the Devil Tornado]].
** Tiger the Dark is associated with piledriver variations.
** Tiger Mask has an unnamed move (it's actually named Tiger Bomber, but Haruna did not make it public for obvious reasons) and the Tiger Fang.
** Tiger [[spoiler:the Great]] the Third has his signature Sacrifice.
** King Tiger has [[ExtremityExtremist his kicks]].
** Big Tiger the Second has the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Skewer]].
** Tiger the Black has the Black Crush. His reliance on it eventually leads to his defeat and a CareerEndingInjury, as Makabe finds out how to counter it and unleashes a terrifying NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.
** Spring Tiger is initially notable for her very simple yet effective style, but ultimately switches to [[KickChick kicks]] after she realizes it's easily countered by the more experienced opponents.

Added DiffLines:

*** In the anime the Crescent Beam is particularly prominent, as she doesn't fully abandon it until the final season, well after acquiring more powerful moves, while in the manga she ditched it ''before the start of the series'' (she used it a lot in ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'', but never used it once in the main series).

** Muhammad Ali's shuffling and lean-back style of defense.

** More of a style than an actual move, the Arie Family has "Arie swordsmanship" a [[TheGreatestStyle unique and powerful style]] of swordsmanship developed by [[MasterSwordsman Arie Hon]]. Arie swordsmanship is restricted to those who inherit Arie Hon's blood thus, only those from the Arie Family are able to learn it.[[note]]The only exceptions to this are Adori Zahard and Zahard's Royal Guards who she leads.[[/note]]

* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'': When he returned, [[TheHero Baam]] had mastered "[[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/towerofgod/images/2/28/Jyu_Viole_Grace_-_Floral_Butterfly_Piercing_Technique.gif Hwajeop Gongpasul]]" (''Floral Butterfly Piercing Technique''), a technique infamous for being used by those aligned to the criminal organization [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized FUG]]. This gets him a bit of attention. Another signature move of Baam's is "Fast Skip", which enables to [[TheParalyzer freeze]] anything and everybody that can move.

* The Solar {{Exalted}} actually have a Charm, Thunderbolt Attack Prana, that allows them to designate "signature attacks." By using said signature attack and paying the cost of the Charm, they're able to do ''ridonkulous'' amounts of damage.
