This is also common in film posters, because it helps create a cool image.

A SubTrope of RuleOfCool (since this is just because it looks cool) and GarnishingTheStory (since this pose is better than not having this pose). Often used as a way to thank whatever god lives in HeavenAbove.

** One of [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link's and Young Link's]] victory poses has this also, and the trope is also exhibited with their respective Up Smash attacks. Link, Young Link, and Toon Link's Up Aerial attacks (Up Thrust) also feature the swordsmen holding their swords in an upwards fashion, with the blade actually glowing in ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl''.

* In ''[[LegoAdaptationGame Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7]]'', when [[TookALevelInBadass Neville]] draws the Sword of Gryffindor from the [[BagOfHolding Sorting Hat]], he holds it up high like in Star Wars, complete with Hermione in Princess Lea's spot, Ron taking over as C-3PO, and Pigwidgeon portraying R2-D2. Voldemort promptly ends it, blowing the other characters away.

* ''VideoGame/MegaMan10'''s retro-style "box art" has Mega Man pointing his Mega Buster at the sky and shooting a beam, looking similar to the poster for ''ANewHope''. There are also floating images of the main characters and space-ships battling in the sky, also in a similar fashion to the ''ANewHope'' poster.

** The animation for, of all things, "Deflect Oil" for the Swordsmaster in WarhammerOnline: Age of Reckoning, is this pose. There's also an emote for it.

* Many TabletopGames figurines, including one used in ''IrregularWebcomic''. The reason for this, aside from the RuleOfCool justification used everywhere else, is because many of these figurines are cast from metal or resin as a single piece, and it means a certain "narrowness" is needed to get the material to flow evenly through the cast. Hence, weapons like swords tend to either be held straight up, or are lowered down and flush with the body.

* The current art of the ''MagicTheGathering'' card [[http://magiccards.info/autocard.php?card=holy%20Strength Holy Strength]] takes this pose (though the arms aren't overhead. The card's direct opposite, [[http://magiccards.info/autocard.php?card=unholy%20Strength Unholy Strength]], inverts this trope.

* Anime/{{Golion}}, aka the Lion Force {{Voltron}} does this ''every time'' he/it summons the Blazing Sword. He also has the odd moment where he will pose with the weapon while engulfed in lightning before delivering the final blow to an adversary.
