* The elaborate choreography employed by Music/{{NSYNC}} usually opened or finished with them in the [[http://i.imgur.com/vwVxr4U.jpg formation.]]
* Most music acts in general use this in order to fit everyone into frame.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has now done this a number of times in its openings as the crew grows, usually focusing on each one (with maniacal grin) before panning out as the ending shot.
** "Maniacal"?

* Subverted hilariously in ''MetalGearSolid4'', after Snake meets Akiba and disarms him. Meryl introduces her team as Rat Patrol 01, with her in point and Jonathan and Ed behind her, then [[http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/File:Ratpatrol.jpg Johnny rushes in and completely screws it up]] with the ''silliest'' pose.

** Similarly, several aircraft formations mimick this. A four-plane version used by the Americans during WorldWarII is known as the Finger Four (named for the positions your fingertips are in if you look at your hand, [[DisSimile and if you aren't missing any fingers]], [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg not counting the thumb, obviously.]] Leave one of the middle spots empty to do a MissingManFormation. If you line everyone up using only one half of the V, you get an Echelon formation instead.

* Used many times on ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' covers or title pages. Most notably the first and last issues have Tahu in the front in the same pose, except in the latter image, one side of the "V" is made up of villains.

* Almost every piece of ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' promotional art showing all six members of a given set wave did this within the first six years, occasionally with some variation such as one character flying above the pose. Come 2008, when set waves became more diverse in who was in them, this became considerably less frequent; after all, having heroes and villains posing together as a team wouldn't make all that much sense.

* During the ''Comicbook/XWingSeries'' a party of three is sent on a covert mission. Its leader, driving force, and most effective member if you don't count snarky comments is shown at the head of the little V they make on the way to a confrontation.
