* Tsubasa from ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' has swords ([[KatanasAreJustBetter especially katanas]]) as her WeaponOfChoice. Apart from attacks involving [[DualWielding dual-wielding swords]], [[FlamingSword flaming swords]], [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throwing swords]], [[{{BFS}} [=BFSs=]]] and [[RocketPoweredWeapon rocket powered [=BFSs=]]], her Gear design has [[MercurysWings vaguely airplane wing-like things coming out of her feet armor]] that, guess what, turn into swords.

* Most practical [[HumongousMecha [=BattleMech=]]] melee weapons in ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'' are, as one would expect, arm-mounted. The big exception are ''talons'', about the one melee weapon system originating with the Clans who normally disdain close combat in 'Mechs -- these are instead added to the legs and increase the damage of kick and death-from-above attacks by 50%. (Some 'Mechs will also carry leg-mounted conventional weapons, but those generally fall more under the LegCannon trope.)
