** Most other blades belonging to individual Digimon are very large, if not quite to the same degree as that of Susanoomon. Memorable examples include [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Imperialdramon Paladin Mode]], [[Anime/DigimonFrontier KaiserGreymon]], [[Anime/DigimonSavers ShineGreymon]], [[Manga/DigimonNext VictoryGreymon]], and [[Anime/DigimonXrosWars most of Shoutmon's Xrossed forms]]. ''DigimonWorld4'' is a game more or less devoted to taking several famous Digimon and giving them [=BFSs=].

Added DiffLines:

* From ''Manga/MagiTheLabyrinthOfMagic'', Alibaba's sword Amon takes the form of an enormous, and extremely wide black sword [[PlayingWithFire which also has fire powers.]] Since the size is so different from it's normal sealed form, he has trouble wielding it without performing a full-djinn equip.
** Ren Kouha's blade on the other hand makes Amon seem tiny. Kouha's sword is basically a giant cleaver that's even bigger than his entire body, (although that's partly because [[PintSizedPowerhouse he's not very big himself]]) and it's magical abilities allow it to grow even bigger, to the point that he could use it as a shield for a large portion of his army.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' generally averts this by making most of the weapons realistically sized, which makes them look tiny compared to other games. One big exception is Chrysamere, also known as the "Paladin's Blade". It looks like some attached a handle to a length of railroad track. Needless to say, it fells most opponents in a single swing.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s ''Shivering Isles'' expansion, [[BigBad Jyggalag]] wields the Sword of Jyggalag, which takes the form of a massive claymore. [[OneHandedZweihander Jyggalag himself is able to wield it with just one hand.]].

Added DiffLines:

** That sword was based off of the Holy Moonlight Sword that Ludwig discovered, and ''both'' it's forms qualify as this: a non-magical claymore that can be wielded with [[OneHandedZweihander one-hand]], and the absurdly-large magical Moonlight form that can fire burst of pure light.

** In ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'', Impa's WeaponOfChoice is the Giant Blade, which looks like a massive [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]] as long as she is tall and about half as wide, yet she's easily able to incorporate it into a number of different [[IaijutsuPractitioner iai techniques]]. Ganondorf also [[DualWielding dual-wields]] a pair of Great Swords.
** Meanwhile, Young Link's Kokiri Sword is upgraded to one. While strange at first glance, it was probably made that way so that the character model would remain consistent during attacks that involve him transforming into Fierce Deity Link, since still wields the above-mentioned Double Helix Sword.

** [=ShinkenRed=]/Red Samurai Ranger's sword, the Rekka Daizanto / Fire Smasher, from ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger''/''Series/PowerRangersSamurai''. Its Cannon Mode is also the team's finisher -- yes, ''a sword that's used as a {{BFG}}, holding several disks and channeling their energy''. The sword's size shows it. If the scale of the S.H. Figuarts action figure is correct, the Rekka Daizanto is '''eight feet long'''. Reportedly, the only person on staff who could lift it properly was Hirofumi Fukuzawa, the stuntman who played the suited-up [=ShinkenRed=]. Although, he's apparently taught someone else, because in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger,'' Marvelous and Ahim morph into Shinkenred and Lady Shinkenred and wield two of them simultaneously.

* In Literature/TheBible, after killing the giant Goliath, David cuts off his head with the giant's own sword. Considering that Goliath was about 9.5 ft tall, his sword must have been rather large compared to David.

** Among more grounded analyses of the sword, there are many who suggest that the sword being two pointed would have been useful for "catching" an opponent's sword and twist it in a bid to disarm the opponnent, though the exact practical mechanics for this work are not always agreed on.
* The [[Myth/IrishMythology Irish Ulster Cycle]] has Fergus mac Roiche's greatsword, Caladbolg ("hard sheath"). That thing could dispatch an ''army'' with a single stroke. Not that it gets to do so against Conall Cernach's forces, since a peace agreement had been arranged (even if he tore up a lot of his soldiers with Caladbolg at less than full force). Nonetheless, to show that his side won't be taking intrigues lying down, Fergus uses Caladbolg to ''cut the tops away from three hills, '''with one stroke each'''''.
** Because of close cognates in Welsh legends, some scholars believe that the stories of Caladbolg were the template for '''''[[Myth/KingArthur Excalibur]]'''''. Maybe ''that's'' why Arthur's reign persisted for so long in the stories.

* Averted in Clay and Susan Griffith's Vampire Empire series, the main heroine Princess Adele asks the famous vampire hunter, The Greyfriar, why he favours a rapier when a large crushing weapon would better suit his vampiric superstrength. He then tells her that crushing is almost useless against vampires, and it's better simply to go for a quick thrust to the heart instead.

* ''{{Neptunia}}'' gives the main protagonist Neptune a few [=BFSes=] such as the Bastard Sword and Claiomh Solais. Noire has the Elysdeon, and Blanc/White Heart has giant hammers and axes rather than swords. Additionally, Neptune and Noire's weapon becomes a BFS when they activate HDD, no matter what sword they were initially wielding.
