* ”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.

* In the original game from the SoulSeries, ''[[{{Prequel}} Soul Blade]]'', when you clashed swords it'd happen two things, a clash in which both weapons [[{{Flynning}} repelled]] each other, but on the other hand is the attack was fierce enough, usually while doing a heavy slash. The swords'd lock and then red lightning'd appear while both combatants pressed againt each other, and finally one has to be quick enough deliver the finishing blow. It's as awesome as it sounds.
