* 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.

In some instances, spinning weapons are used to block projectiles or create [[BlowYouAway wind attacks.]]

* ''SoulEater'': Every single Meister in this series seems to love doing this. It may or may not aid with Soul Resonance or not, but it sure looks cool and eats up a few seconds of screen time. As Maka actually incorporates lots of this into her combat style, she is in fact sent into a brief Heroic BSOD [[spoiler: when the Book of Eibon tries to [[MindRape use this]] to claim that if she (seemingly) cannot pull off the same moves with a regular broom, she is too weak to do anything but rely on Soul Eater.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', Link twirls the Master Sword before sheathing it after every boss battle. Lampshaded in one fight when he does his victory sheathe, but then notices that the boss is still barely alive; after finishing it off he quickly returns the sword to its scabbard without showing off. [[note]]The thing is, Link wasn't even using the sword in that fight. He shouldn't have anything to sheath in the first place.[[/note]]
** In the same game, Link twirls his sword as an idle animation whenever he is locked onto an enemy.
