** A flashback during Zoro's time at his dojo has his sensei explain that inverting this trope is also necessary to playing it straight; Only the very best swordsman can ''choose'' whether or not they want to cut something. He demonstrates this by purposely failing to cut a piece of paper. During Zoro's battle against Mr. 1 in Alabasta, he shows that he's mastered this aspect by running his sword through some palm leaves- and doing no damage.

This is {{Lampshaded}} at one point when Miria says something along the lines of "Have you ever wondered why our swords never chip or dull, no matter how hard we swing or how hard the surface we hit? What exactly are they made of? The material can't be from this continent and I've looked everywhere." [[spoiler:Priscilla somehow consumed her own sword when she Awakened, and is able to form it again whenever she feels like swordfighting.]]

** Jack's [[AncestralWeapon ancestral sword]] fits this bill very well. It can potentially cut through almost anything, but he has came across things that he simply wasn't strong enough to cut. It was a plot point at one time, when Jack had to destroy a series of robots Aku supercharged himself - the blade couldn't cut, because Jack wasn't strong enough, but when given a bionic arm by the creator of the robots (who was tricked into making said robots for Aku), he's able to decapitate them easily.

Only young hero Lion-O makes good on his boast, as his Sword of Omens totally cleaves the boulder in two with a classic DiagonalCut, winning him a hefty purse.

* Chef Tony once advertised the Perfection Series knives as so sharp they can cut a pineapple in half in midair. Also a DeceptivelySimpleDemonstration, since a blade doesn't necessarily ''need'' to be razor sharp to cut through a pineapple if it's swung with enough force.

Though Carrol refuses to explain what "vorpal" means, popular {{Fanon}} is that it means "sharp". Thus, Vorpal Swords and vorpal weapons have since made appearances in numerous video games as weapons with AbsurdCuttingPower, often with the ability to inflict a OneHitKill (usually via beheading.)

Added DiffLines:

*** Dark Sister was this even more than most Valyrian steel weapons, since it was designed ''for'' Visenya, and was therefore skinnier and more flexible than the typical broad or longsword, and thus had to rely on sharpness for cutting power more than raw force. It was not, however, a rapier like Arya's Needle.
