** Her older sister Winter pulls off the technique in her debut fight. It may be a family trick. Like Weiss's example, its justified because the person she does this to is strong enough to create a crater in the pavement with his swing.

* Played RELATIVELY straight in ''Manga/FutabakunChange'', where a SUMO-WRESTLER does this. The owner of the sword couldn't hold for long.

* In ''AppleseedExMachina'', Deunan runs upon an enemy's outstretched HumongousMecha hand, taking the direct route to his cockpit. It's not the same as the blade but looks just as awesome.

* Dark Link is capable of doing this in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' if you use the stab move to attack him by freezing Link in place somehow and jumping onto the blade. This can be used to your advantage, however; if you use the broken "Giant's Knife" or the Biggoron Sword, he falls off. The other way to bypass this ability is to [[DropTheHammer use a weapon other than a sword]].
** What makes it worse is that, as the fight goes on, he'll stab you whenever he does this. This becomes incredibly annoying, given that most players will at this time be conditioned to stab a fleeing enemy.
