* Before ''Soul Calibur 4'', there was ''VideoGame/StarWarsMastersOfTerasKasi'', which was basically just ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' but with Star Wars characters. To keep the Jedi and Sith characters from being {{Game Breaker}}s, lightsabers were essentially treated like clubs or baseball bats.

To keep the Jedi and Sith characters from being {{Game Breaker}}s, lightsabers were essentially treated like clubs or baseball bats. That said, the Jedi and Sith characters were ''still'' {{Game Breaker}}s, largely because of the reach afforded to them by the weapons and the unblockable, undodgeable Saber Throw that some of them had.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' sometimes run into this with characters' built in guns. Typically they didn't do any significant damage, except against [[{{Mooks}} Vehicons]], but in one instance Megatron's arm cannon is enough to [[spoiler:kill Dreadwing with a single shot]], and is '''NEVER''' presented as being that powerful again.

Megatron's own gun has shot Bulkhead in the back and dealt no lasting damage; in the final episode, it's able to [[spoiler: kill Bumblebee]] with the first shot- the other two or three were because Megatron is a giant dick.

* In a [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11003041/23/Plot-Bunny-Ranch one-shot]] {{Literature/Worm}}/[[Franchise/StarWars Star Wars]] plot bunny, the VillainAntagonist uses a lightsaber that she sets to stun rather than kill when taking down [[FlyingBrick Glory Girl]]. It is lampshaded by one of the heroes in the debriefing.

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'': The lightsabers. Although they are [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement extremely powerful weapons]] in both games (arguably the ''only'' powerful weapons in the first one), they generally do ''not'' behave like the lightsabers of the traditional StarWars lore. They are more like normal swords, possibly to avoid the GameBreaker status. Possibly justified through the use of "cortosis", a material which [[CripplingOverspecialization blocks lightsabers and little else]]. Presumably, the overuse of cortosis in this era rendered it rare by the time of the movies.
** It should be said that ''all'' StarWars games that give the player a light saber at any point don't portray the weapon the way the movies do, otherwise the player could literally cut through the entire environment. Never mind that it would be a one hit kill on almost all enemies.

* ''Film/{{Desierto}}'' is about a VigilanteMan hunting down a group of illegal immigrants with his hunting rifle. At first he is terrifyingly accurate, but as the number of survivors falls, so the number of dramatic near misses rises.
