* Happens frequently in ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' whenever anyone draws a sword. Considering Merlin's ''eyes'' have their own sound effect, it could be worse.

** To be fair, Wolverine’s claws are metal sliding against the metal bones in his hand, so not entirely unrealistic.

* Funnily enough, bladed weapons in MitadakeHigh don't make any noise at all when being picked up or equipped. The only noise any weapon makes is when it hits something, and the sound for a bladed weapon sounds distinctively fleshy, since the only time you swing your blade is when you're stabbing someone -- not a metallic sound.

* A blade will make a ringing sound for a few seconds if drawn against metal. If this happens when it's pulled from a sheath, it's because it's scraping against the metal scabbard collar. Stage scabbards are sometimes designed specifically to produce this effect. Such scabbards have indeed also been used in real life, particularly in the 19th century[[note]]Generally it would have been a simple collar made of brass, which was softer than steel and therefore less likely to dull the edge of a sword, although entirely steel scabbards were not unknown[[/note]], and these latter-day examples may have inspired the trope in theatre and film. Ancient, medieval and early modern scabbards generally consisted of some combination of leather and wood, however, and therefore wouldn't have made much of a dramatic sound, as explained by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzbfuI0PMdA hobbyist Lindybeige]] and (in somewhat more accurate detail) by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xAjpdkO-6o HEMA instructor Matt Easton]]. Easton later demonstrated that some 19th century brass throated scabbards [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0eKdGcuxAw can in fact create the schwing]].

* The killer manages to do this with a hook in the second ''Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer'' film. Made somewhat worse by the fact that said hook is of such a shape that it probably wouldn't fit in a scabbard, and at one point the ''SHING'' seems to happen just because he takes it out from under his coat.

Used by the same kind of series that would use SwordSparks, a subset of TheCoconutEffect. For objects that aren't sharp but still cast an ambient hum along with their glow, see AudibleGleam. See also this trope's GunCounterpart, NoisyGuns.
