* The Angelic bosses Valor and Valiance in ''VideoGame/Valor'' both wield big, fancy golden swords (Valiance's face is even on situated on it). Valor's can extend to prodigious sizes (ie: something like 10 times as tall as he is).

* ''Film/XMen'':
** The InNameOnly version of {{Deadpool}} from ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' has swords that extend from each of his wrists in a slit between his knuckles like Wolverine's claws. Taking logic into account, the swords are so big that he would be unable to bend his elbows with them fully concealed.

* In ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', pretty much any famous sword is a BFS. Of special note is the two-handed ''flint'' sword made for the enormous Karsa Orlong that is implied to be about 9 feet long.

* Both Siegfried and Nightmare from the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' use a BFS. Further, in ''[=SoulCalibur=] 3'', there is a style based off of the BFS. The German sword style it was based on actually existed, but both characters use it in ways that a normal human could never accomplish with a two-handed sword of that size.

* Both Siegfried and Nightmare from the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' use a BFS. Siegfried's swords in the very first game are much more reasonably sized, but he later acquires a much bigger sword as his standard weapon. Further, in ''[=SoulCalibur=] 3'', there is a style based off of the BFS. The German sword style it was based on actually existed, but both characters use it in ways that a normal human could never accomplish with a two-handed sword of that size.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' does not disappoint in this category. Noctis can wield swords perhaps as long as he is tall, if not more, but even the largest of his swords are put to shame by Gladiolus's own sword. Perhaps it was intentional irony in his name meaning "little sword".

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.
