* The attack originally comes from ''Manga/LoveHina'', where it was used by Motoko and its development was the focus of an arc for her. The Shinmei Ryū school has a large number of ranged attack techniques, some of which have the ability to "skip" the first thing in its path and strike a target behind it.

* From ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'':
** Rath has two sword beam attacks. Crossblade has him use his two main swords Axiom and Praxis to fire off an X-shaped projectile by slashing into the air. Catalytic Smash has him use his third sword [[{{BFS}} Precept]] to unleash a shockwave, extending directly ahead of him.
** In an obvious ShoutOut to ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', Galilea's "It's Dangerous to go Alone" augment gives her the ability to unleash a ranged blast of energy with each swing of her Greatsword while her health is full.
** MX.Ronin minions are capable of sending crossblade attack waves to attack at long range. If an attack wave hits a Battleborn, it will return to the Ronin that sent it. If it hits again on the return, it will deal more damage and inflict slow for a few seconds.

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' [[spoiler:Saber's [[InfinityPlusOneSword Excalibur]]]] can be used to unleash an enormous [[PillarOfLight beam of energy]] capable of [[PurposelyOverpowered annihilating anything in its path]]. It is used in [[spoiler:LightNovel/FateZero to literally [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punch out Cthulhu]]]]. Naturally, this ability takes an immense amount of energy to use. Gilgamesh's own sword ([[StormOfBlades the only one he actually wields, that is]]), Ea, is pretty much the same thing turned UpToEleven. It's the only Noble Phantasm to be classified as "Anti-''World''", which means Gil can pretty much never unleash its full power for fear of an EarthShatteringKaboom, [[SuperpowerLottery not that he needs to]]. Even on its weakest setting, it can match the aforementioned sword with ease.

** In addition to the old standard (Majinken), there's [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Kyle]]'s Souhajin, Mary's Gou Majinken, [[VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence Ange]]'s Kouhajin, [[VideoGame/TalesOfHearts Shing]]'s Kuuretsusen and Seieireppa... suffice it to say, most melee attackers in the ''Tales of'' games are required to have at least one somewhere. That's to say nothing of the advanced versions like [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Rid]]'s Majinken Souga and [[VideoGame/TalesOfHearts Kunzite]]'s Majinrenzan.
** For the English speakers, they are "Double Demon Fang" {fires 2 DFs}, "Demonic Chaos" {fires three DFs in rapid succession}, and "Fierce Demon Fang" {which create a shockwave which hits multiple times at close range}. Variations, such as [[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia Senel's]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Luke's]] Demon Fist, [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Yuri's]] "Azure Edge" and Estelle's "Star Stroke", and Repede's "Demonic Charge", also exist.
*** Most of [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Guy]]'s second [[LimitBreak Mystic Arte]] "Brilliant Overlord" also counts.
