** Don't forget about wave dashing in ''Melee''. Despite being controversial and having various exploits, it looks like standard video game dashing. Except for Luigi, who just slides ridiculously far.

** Don't forget about wave dashing in ''Melee''.''Melee'' (tapping the jump button and then air-dodging diagonally into the ground, allowing a character to slide a short distance without changing their stance). Despite being controversial and having various exploits, it looks like standard video game dashing. Except for Luigi, who just slides whose low traction results in him sliding ridiculously far.

** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]] has this as his normal running animation, as a nod to ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''.

* Mages in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' can do this with the "Blink" spell, savvy Mages can even use it midair to circumvent taking falling damage if cast just before landing. Using it on very rugged terrain is unpredictable and not recommended; the spell obeys line of sight and walls, thus a small plateau could result in the spell stopping just short of the normal distance, a potentially deadly outcome [[SquishyWizard for the mage]] if the spell's use was intended to create distance from a dangerous foe. There are also several enemies that can move this way, like the Ethereals.

* A handful of ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' champions have this ability, including Shen, Graves, and Lucian.

* This is a notable feature in the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series and its spin-offs, with all the above-mentioned variants present in at least one game. The regular ground dash is a modification of the sliding tackle from the first ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series and even shares the property of [[DenialOfDiagonalAttack passing under certain enemy attacks]].

*** By the time of ''X7'', the playable cast was able to air dash by default on top of this (Zero gained the ability in ''X4'' and ''X5'', finally internalizing it by ''X6'', whereas the air dash was restricted to an attribute of X's armors in most games). X's armors tend to enable him to utilize upgraded dashes (such as Blade Armor's Mach Dash in ''X6'' [[note]]a variant of the basic air dash allowing X to move in one of the four cardinal directions; it was invincible on startup and traveled twice the distance of a normal air dash[[/note]] and invincible shadow dashes allowing X to phase through enemies in ''X8''). These traits would be given (under certain circumstances) to Zero [[VideoGame/MegaManZero in his series]] and later the various Biometal Models in ''VideoGame/MegaManZX''.
** Dashing would later be backported into the Classic series with Bass starting in ''[[VideoGame/MegaManAndBass Mega Man & Bass]]'' (he is Zero's predecessor, after all). Bass' design appears to sport the boot rockets that the ''X'' series characters possess.
** The ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' series replaced this ability with a continuous forward boost (if the right Leg Parts are equipped) and the UnnecessaryCombatRoll.

In many newer action games characters will have the ability to rocket forward or backward with their legs trailing after them as if firing a jet-pack horizontally, though they usually aren't wearing one. When doing this they will be able to travel a distance many times the length of their body in a split second, better than any RealLife combat lunge. This move tends to be triggered by tapping or flicking the same direction more than once but some games have a dedicated 'dash button'.

* One of the basic movement abilities in ''{{Dragonica}}'', with dash-jumping also implemented.
* This occurs in ''RobotUnicornAttack'' (original and Heavy Metal version) when the X button is pressed.

* ''DistortedTravesty'' uses dashing quite a lot, both to extend the range of jumps and to dodge enemy attacks or environmental obstacles. There is also a short-range dash if precision jumping is necessary. A powerup partway through allows the use of an air dash as well. You ''will'' learn to use them all effectively or you [[NintendoHard will never get anywhere in the game]].
