* Generals and captains do this in ''RomeTotalWar'' when units are ordered around the battlefield. There are also some variations, from a simple point forward with the sword to the commander spinning the sword above his head to the commander's horse (when he's mounted) rearing as the commander sweeps the sword forward in a grand gesture.

* The Legion Etiquette gesture in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' basically consists of this, and is used to salute an enemy. The Abyss Watchers boss actually performs it towards the player in their pre-battle cutscene, as it is a symbol of the Undead Legion the Watchers belong to.
