* In ''Manga/Brave10'', it usually appears as an excuse during fights to keep up the TrashTalk and dialogue exchange, as exemplified by Hanzo and Saizo's second fight.

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' has the "sword clash"; two people use the sword-lunge (usually a one-hit kill) at each other simultaneously, the swords will glance off each other, knock the players back from each other a bit, zap their shields, and (barring [[BigDamnHeroes assistance from a teammate]]) they try it again; it usually turns into a contest of timing at this point, to see who can get their next attack off quicker and actually manage to beat their opponent. I suppose, if you mentally squint a bit, this ''could'' be considered blade-lock, as it ''does'' result in a temporary stalemate, but it doesn't fit the literal definition of the trope.

* In the finale of ''Theatre/PoseidonsFury'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]], this happens during Poseidon's sword fight with Lord Darkenon, with the locking of their weapons creating a noticeable glowing effect. The two briefly exchange words between each other before breaking it off.

* ”Literature/TheIronTeeth” web serial’s forests are haunted by many different types of dangerous monsters. They are incredibly dangerous and a lot of people perish within them. At any given time during a Sword Fight, expect the two blades to lock together, especially when you are teaching young hobgoblin.

* Contrary to most sport fencing today, longsword fencing in the German styles practically required this. Combined with other techniques like using the pommel and guard as blunt instruments and surprisingly advanced grappling, this was practically the only way to effectively fight an opponent in full armor. The general strategy was to bind, smash or throw your opponent to the ground, and then make a thrust at the now (slightly more) exposed gaps in your opponent's armor. Several techniques involved putting one or both hands on the blade of the sword, for extra leverage.

Several techniques involved putting one or both hands on the blade of the sword, for extra leverage. However, this sort of blade contact was transient, usually with one fighter either disengaging or winning the bind, most often though superior technique, as opposed to the face-to-face brute-force contest of strength that is often portrayed in cinema and video games.
