* Creator/LarryNiven's short story "Not Long Before the End" (a part of his ''Literature/TheMagicGoesAway'' universe) features Glirendree, "the most powerful sword in the world". It can cut through anything and makes its wielder immune to all magic. On the other hand, it is also a parasitic demon forced into the shape of a sword that leeches its user's life away, giving him no more than about a year of glorious victory before killing him of old age.
* In LinCarter's ''Dragonrogue'', the hero, Kesrick, has a sword that, because of the magical gem in the pommel, can cut anything -- even adamantium.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Gosu}}'', any gosu wielding a bladed weapon fits this, with these gosu being able to cleanly slice through thick trees, boulders and cliff faces easier than pulling a hot knife through butter.

---> ''"In the hands of a gosu with great inner ki, even a dead leaf can become a weapon that can pierce iron plates."''

* Many swords in ''{{Yaiba}}'' are really, really sharp. Justified, because they're magical.

* Sanger Zombolt's Zankantou from "VideoGame/SuperRobotWars" can cut through pretty much anything. Mechs of both human and alien origin, giant flying battleships, even a mountain formed for the purpose of pulling off a CombinationAttack. The man said it himself, there is nothing his blade cannot cut.
