*** And, after spending some time in China[note]To film the action-comedy movie ''Project X'' alongside Jackie Chan[/note], he debuted a new ''sixth'' move - the ''Lightning Fist'' - a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85csZI4FLNg theatrical punch]] complete with crossed-arm power-up stands - at house shows before breaking it out on TV at the ''Super Showdown'' in Australia. And, just to show how far the meme's ascended, the new move is also an example of CallingYourAttacks; with Cena shouting out the move's name in Mandarin.

* Wrestling/MargaretTiger's sequence: a piledriver, [[MurderousThighs body scissors]], a powerbomb, a frog splash, and another piledriver.

* Wrestling/BrayWyatt, in his early run, had this sequence: Standing uranage, drag opponent to the corner, stinger splash, hang upside down from the corner, [[FinishingMove Sister Abigail]].


* Wrestling/RandyOrton has begun to develop his own since he recently [[HeelFaceTurn became a face]] in late 2010 starting with a series of short arm clothesline, followed by a scoop powerslam, a inverted headlock back breaker or sometimes an Angle Slam, followed by a rope hung DDT and [[FinishingMove lastly]] the [[FunWithAcronyms RKO]], punt or combination of the two.

More often than not lately, however, he has somewhat phased out the five moves of doom and instead hits the [[AscendedMeme RKO from outta nowhere]].

** His first move is a Space Mach Attack, occasionally going straight to the multi-directional impact barrage if starting while already airborne. Following them are the Sky Zapper and Ultimate Impact rushes (the latter the version used in the Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi games), then a Final Shine Attack (may occasionally substitute in a cyan-accented Chrono version of his primary Alpha's design), and ended with a Sadistic 18.
*** Sadistic 18's appearance usually only happens when his target does something to get on his bad side, as seen in the first chapter of The Kashima Chronicles when Jet (then disguised as a girl) stops Jack Barnes from raping title character Yuri.

* Wrestling/JohnCena's sequence: Flying shoulderblock, sitout hip toss, side-release spinout powerbomb, Five Knuckle Shuffle (fistdrop), [[strike:FU]] [[LighterAndSofter Attitude Adjustment]] (Fireman's Carry Takeover). Cena has the honor of being the first, and so far only, wrestler to openly refer to his sequence as the Five Moves of Doom in his promos. He's since added the STFU ([[strike:STF]] STS crossface combo) to the end of the sequence, making it his Six Moves of Doom.
