Every character in every fighting game/RPG/beat-em-up has a vast array of moves in his/her arsenal, many of which define his/her fighting style or even personality. Therefore, they become iconic in the gaming universe and are mimicked by other characters as well.
Furthermore, many of these moves are typically based on real life martial arts, but with a twist. Ever been enamored by how influential Ryu's Hadoken is? How about the over-the-top moves many RPG characters execute?
Feel free to share your favorite ones!

Your friendly neighborhood dropout loser.
I've never thought of this before but now that I am the obvious answer would be Jiraiya's flaming Rasengan. The man set fire to the rain, I mean seriously...
Life is precious
Hmm .... the only fighting game i played before is FF : Dissidia
HP Attack : Omnislash v5
EX Burst : Gabranth's Quickening. ( Firing lazer, then punching enemy so hard then the dimension shattered then stabbing them with a bunch of flaming sword and send them into a black hole never looked so cool )
RPG Ultimate Move: Blanc/ White Heart's Hard Break. ( Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory )
Probably procrastinating or playng videogame somewhere ...
