* The Oodachi (lit. "great sword") class characters of ''VideoGame/ToukenRanbu'' are all anthromorphism of real life BFS, but Taroutachi still stands out because it is mentioned in-game that the real sword is so big that no normal human should be able to wield it and thus it's a temple piece dedicated to the gods.

** While several notable examples are listed below, as a rule every single blade shown in the 40k universe will be much larger than anything in real life. This is both for modeling purposes and rule of cool, and include things such as the Catachan Fangs. Knives that are as long as the model's arms.

* ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' has several large swords. But the one that really takes the cake is the Galatine, which on most Warframes is '''''LONGER THEN THE WARFRAME IS TALL'''''. It's large size means that the frames aren't going to be just dancing around the battlefield, instead, they cut through the enemy with very powerful attacks that, with the right mods atleast [[note]]Fire damage and ice damage mods, creating explosive damage[[/note]], can literally send targets ''flying''. This leads to no end of laughs when your frame swings the sword like a baseball bat, the crit chance falls in your favor, and the hapless target is sent flying. Expect some players in voice chat to be making baseball announcements because of this sword.
