* The lightsaber fighting in much of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequel trilogy involves lots and lots of spinning. There's at least one portion in Obi-Wan's climactic duel with Anakin that has both of them standing next to each other, spinning their sabers for a good three seconds before they actually attack again.

* ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' has a scene where the turtles come across some Foot Clan soldiers. One starts twirling some nunchucks. Michaelangelo then twirls his nunchucks. Then the Foot twirls his more elaborately, and so does Mike. Finally, the Foot does a really elaborate twirl, and then looks up in surprise - to see Mike spinning his nunchucks on top of his finger.
