** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Zidane]]'s Grand Lethal is a BeamSpam in the original game, but it turns into a melee version in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''.

* The novelization of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' describes the lightsaber duel between Mace Windu and Palpatine as a blur of darkness in which Windu's blade appeared to be in seven places at once. His fighting style, Vaapad, is an ordinarily DangerousForbiddenTechnique that he designed to accomplish this.




to:

* The "Multi Strike" spell in ''VideoGame/FableI'' lets a single strike connect up to five times at once, multiplying the effect of any other buffs the Hero has.

*** Later Fate material introduced the Sakura Saber (a GenderFlip of [[TheShinsengumi Souji Okita]]), whose own signature move is the very similar yet fundamentally different '''Mumyou Sandanzuki'''; where both techniques are simultaneous triple attacks, Assassin's is a triple slash meant to be unavoidable, while Okita's is a triple thrust meant to be unblockable. Apparently, raping the fabric of reality with a sword is just a thing japanese swordsmen can do in this setting.

* '''Split-Second Blade Spam''': Where the attacks are pseudo-simultaneous - the observer cannot tell that there are multiple slashes being executed.

Blade Spam is oftentimes the mark of MasterSwordsman-type characters (or the equivalent for [[WeaponOfChoice other kinds of weapon-users]]) in many works, and usually take the form of striking a given target from several different angles/directions - typically the eight cardinal and ordinal ones - [[SuperSpeed within the span of a second]].

SubTrope of SpamAttack. MoreDakka is the GunCounterpart, while BeamSpam is the laser/magic counterpart.. Compare StormOfBlades, for when ''several'' blades are rapidly ''thrown'' at the target. If someone does this unarmed, that's RapidFireFisticuffs.

* ''Anime/GurrenLagann'': Viral's Enki-series Gunmen have swords as their primary armament. Invokes this trope with two blades, then [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four]], then [[spoiler:''literally'' takes the trope UpToEleven with Viral's Tengen Toppa in ''Lagann-hen'', armed with thirteen swords (and a kanabo) simultaneously.]] Bonus points for having split-second {{Blade Lock}}s between spams.
