* ''Literature/{{Swellhead}}'' has Literature/DiogenesClub hero of TheSeventies, psychic detective Richard Jeperson, [[RetiredBadass come of retirement]] in the modern era to take on a reality-warping supervillain. In their final confrontation Jeperson gets into this position for a battle of willpower, but not without some assistance from his pretty female sidekick as he's not as flexible as he used to be. The position comes in handy though when the supervillain tries opening a trapdoor to his [[SharkPool pit of alligators]] beneath our hero, who just floats in mid-air. However the trope is subverted because it's the villain's belief in a WorthyOpponent that's enabling Jeperson to tap into his power; not the [[MeditationPowerup chanting]] or LotusPosition.
