** 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.

* The poster for [[SeaLab2021 Tinfins]] is a direct parody of the ''Film/ANewHope'' poster with Captain Murphy holding a [[http://cdn.buzznet.com/assets/users16/liat/default/tin-fins--large-msg-119291295056.jpg pipe wrench above his head]].

* ''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.

* As implied in the main article, several characters and HumongousMecha in ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' do this pose. Simon and Kamina have theirs, and even the Gurren pulls one: they stab the sky with their finger while giving a RousingSpeech about piercing the heavens. That's not to mention every time a mech pulls a Giga Drill Breaker usually involves some fire and explosions. Just see ''Literature/TheChildrenOfHurin'', below.

* Túrin, in Creator/JRRTolkien's ''Literature/TheChildrenOfHurin'', gives a RousingSpeech, does this, and then has a magic fire ignite behind him. Which does heavily resemble [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann that same thing that this trope isn't to be confused with]].
