Diving kick from offscreen

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
An anime/manga trope I've noticed. Somebody comes out of nowhere to kick whoever's on-screen. One wonders how exactly they launched themselves thusly...

Examples:
  • Haruhi, just before accepting the Computer Research Society President's challenge.
  • Asuna to Ayaka twice in chapter 14 (volume 2) of Mahou Sensei Negima - once breaking Negi's Marshmallow Hell, and once in the subsequent flashback to snap her out of her grief at her brother's stillbirth.

    Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z when he saves Son Goku from being drained to death by Artifical Human/Android 19.

    Providing both example and better title: Dynamic Entry by Might Guy in Naruto

    Dynamic Entry for the win. For obvious reasons, this comprises a lot of anime Big Damn Heroes moments.

    Dynamic Entry rocks. I haven't seen enough of Guy recently. I need to go watch some Naruto. Excuse me.

    Villainous example from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: After Fate manages to injure the mysterious masked man from the second season a second masked man appears and does this to her.

    Well, all Three Rules Of Three have been fulfilled. Now all I need is to think of a good description for the article.

    Oh, yeah - the "WHO-THE-HELL-DO-YOU-THINK-I-AM KICK" probably counts as well.

    Dynamic Entry is really the only possible name.

    Brief Truth In Television digression: one of my former cats (an Ax Crazy Omnicidal Maniac in small, cute form essentially) also proved capable of doing this. In multiple instances... somehow.

    Hiruma from Eyeshied 21 does this when he feels the Devil Bats aren't being awesome enough.

    Wait, so what about the YKTTW about interesting ways of entering buildings or something to that effect? That one wanted to be called Dynamic Entry, too...

    Bump...Will launch later if I need to. Someone with better wiki-fu than I, might I trouble you to search out a screenshot of Haruhi's flying kick (actually I think it might already be here somewhere for an image?)

    I know there's a trope-to-be already here for Dynamic Entry. I'll try finding it and bumping it up.

Three days must pass before this YKTTW is Launchworthy or Discardable
