** Luffy truly combines this with ConfusionFu. He's highly innovative and has an extremely versatile power set, and since many of his foes can predict attacks a fluid, formless style actually counts in his favor. It's very clear that he has almost no formal training however, and said power set makes nunchucks look controllable.

* In ''[[Film/IpMan Ip Man 2]]'', BigBad boxer Twister mocks the "dancing" of the martial arts demonstration.
* The BigBad in the Film/JamesBond movie ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'' does this in front of the captured Chinese spy, making lots of karate chop moves and yelling {{Kiai}} all the while. He's supposed to be showing how "pathetic" her moves are, but it comes across as {{Narm}}. Which is kinda the point; he's mocking her since his Mooks have, y'know, ''guns''.

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E6TheVampiresOfVenice "The Vampires of Venice"]], Rory faces down a vampire with a broom, which he attempts to use to intimidate the vampire, by flailing it around wildly as if he was a master swordsman, while making ''lightsaber noises''. Unfortunately for him, the vampire he's facing ''is'' a master swordsman. Cue OhCrap on Rory's part.

* The sword-fighting abilities of [[FakeUltimateHero "Da Samurai"]] (don't confuse with the main character) in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation could be interpreted]] like this.

Sometimes, when someone is trying to show off martial arts, they just look goofy. They flail around, fall over, smack into stuff, and a whole bunch of other things. Expect a PricelessMingVase to get broken, or even the would-be black belt's own bones.

** In one episode called "A Star Is Born", there are auditions for a commercial about karate. Bulk enters the audition and shows of his "incredible karate skills" (read: making random movements while shouting). He passes the audition, but at the end of the episode we see the finished commercial; Bulk is the "[[BeforeAndAfterPictures before]]" and Tommy (who actually ''is'' a competent martial artist) is the "[[BeforeAndAfterPictures after]]".
