Compare BigBulkyBomb and {{BFG}} (as mentioned above). May well be a BiggerStick. May involve {{Hammerspace}} physics for storage, or [[SticksToTheBack some sort of strange magnetism]]. [[BladeAboveTheShoulder Almost always held casually resting on the hero's shoulder]].

* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' features [[LaserBlade lightsabers]] designed to be inordinately long. They disappeared more or less immediately when it was considered [[AwesomeButImpractical swinging one inside a ship would cause explosive decompression]]. They reappeared when someone came up with a way to put it on a switch, so it would be a regular lightsaber until the user ''needed'' a blade that could cut a small spaceship in half. Luke Skywalker said "Dual-phase lightsabers seem to have been a fad among Jedi at certain points."

** The earliest versions of lightsabers (not counting their Forcesaber precursor) were so energy-intensive and unwieldy that they were essentially relegated to rarely-used siege weapons.

Added DiffLines:

** The Sword of Nunbaku, formed from the [[PhysicalGod Six Paths']] Truth-Seeking Orbs, is a titanic DNA-shaped sword that can destroy and reform the landscape at the user's whim. [[NegatedMomentOfAwesome Unfortunately, despite being presented, it never actually got used.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/RobbReturns'': Stormbreaker, the Durrandons' ancient greatsword that Robert found, counts as one. When it is used, the sound of thunder can actually be heard. [[spoiler:[[RuleOfSymbolism It also brings out the enemy's true nature]], as it proves by making Jaime's sword rust from the inside, and will not be stained by the blood of a coward.]]

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'''s official artwork of the Paladin job shows a Roegadyn [[note]]Roegadyns are a race of large, burly people[[/note]] Paladin with a sword, the Curtana, that's nearly as tall as he is. In game the Curtana, though a bit oversized, isn't really that big. It also scales to the wielder. Proper two handed Greatswords will be the weapon of choice of Dark Knights in the first expansion.

* The Oodachi (lit. "great sword") class characters of ''VideoGame/ToukenRanbu'' are all {{Moe Anthropomorphism}}s of real life greatswords, [[NotAnExample most of which don't qualify]]. But Taroutachi is a good example, which is {{Justified|Trope}} as the real Taroutachi is a ceremonial blade: as the game points out, it IS too large for most people to wield in real life, as it's meant to serve as a temple to the gods. In real life, this means that it is not meant for combat, contrary to what he says.
