* In the adaptation of ''[[Literature/AsianSaga Shogun]]'', Englishman John Blackthorne is shocked to see a samurai slice the head off an oldster who did not bow when he was supposed to. You get a great look at Blackthorne's face (and that of the Jesuit priest accompanying him) and just a glimpse of a headless neck - and vertebra - before the body falls out of camera shot.

* ''Series/WolfHall'' shows the RealLife execution of Anne Boleyn in its final episode. They specially hired an executioner from France who was an expert in beheadings. He does tell Cromwell that even he can't guarantee a perfect cut if she's not steady, but he uses an AbsurdlySharpBlade and a special technique to misdirect the condemned so that they aren't tense when he makes the swing.

* The ease with which ''ComicBook/{{Blade}}'' dices his enemies may be justified since he was upgraded with super strength (thanks to the movies), once punching the jaw off some charging creature in [[MarvelComics Midnight Sons Unlimited]]. Weapons sometimes don't hold up against some of the tougher enemies he fights, even when he clearly beats them.

** In the books Robb Stark requires several swings during his execution. It's subverted in the show and the show writers had already did that with Theon and wanted to show [[AdaptationalBadass Robb]] was than [[AdaptationalWimp Theon]].

* Taken to the logical extreme with [[TheGrimReaper Death]]'s scythe in the ''{{Literature/Discworld}}'' series - so thin and fine that it sharpens on ''daylight'' and can cut a person's words to pieces. His sword too, introduced in ''Discworld/Hogfather'' is only visible at the edge, due to it cutting tiny pieces of the air in half. Said sword cut through, without any effort on the part of the wielder, in fact by accident, a large portion of the dining table at UU, as well as numerous forks, knives etc. So little effort was needed, in fact, that the wielder was rather surprised to find a large chunk of table falling away.

-->'''Marrow:''' "You... you sliced his head in half, right?\\
'''Psylocke:''' "No."\\
'''Marrow:''' "Yeah yeah, I know this trick. It's like your sword's so sharp it'll take a moment for the wound to, y'know, pop open. Like in the movies."\\
'''Psylocke:''' "No."\\
'''Marrow:''' "And then there'll be this enormous fountain of blood and brai..."\\
'''Psylocke:''' "Shut up. Psychic blade. I downsized his ego."
