** Super Janemba turns an oni's mace into the red Dimension Sword. As its name implies, it cuts through dimension and can create dimension portals. It throws {{Sword Beam}}s all the time and gives SSJ3 Goku a big trouble.

* ''UsagiYojimbo'': Usagi's daisho, a katana and wakizashi [[NamedWeapon named Willow Branch and Young Willow, respectively.]] While the weapons are nothing more than master-crafted swords Usagi won in his first tournament, they have seen extensive use over more than a decade, cutting tree trunks and nicking other swords in {{Blade Lock}}s, and are still in pristine condition.

** Some fans believe it to be AwesomeButImpractical, as its design robs the wielder of a sword's primary advantage over a weapons with a shorter blade - range. Trying to use it like a normal sword results in one of the pointy ends facing your own gut, which can end badly. It's probably good for defense, but not much for attacking an enemy with a normal sword, provided the enemy knows to maintain the range.

**Not to mention that in a series with phasers, using them in actual fighting is unlikely to ever end well.

* Longsword (two-handed): The quintessential knightly weapon. A late medieval weapon, with an average blade length of 90 cm (35 in). Sometimes used as a generic term referring to any sword that long or longer. This type of sword came into vogue in late 13th century, and remained in use until the 17th century. Prone to a lot of misidentification, it is common for it to be mistaken for a Bastard Sword, a Greatsword, Broadsword and other types of swords of the period. The longsword was made to be wielded with two hands, and thus has a handle long enough to comfortably accommodate them, yet still doesn't classify as a BFS since it can be used one-handed, although you would lose dexterity in your swordplay if you did. Bastard swords are similar, yet slightly smaller in both blade and handle, and can be comfortably wielded with either one or two hands. Greatswords ARE the BFS of the real world, sometimes as tall as a man of their period and with pretty big handle and handguards. Some of the specific types of Greatswords are mentioned below. Both the German and Italian schools of swordsmanship deal with the longsword.

** Bastard Sword/Hand-and-a-Half Sword: Smaller in blade and hold than a longsword, but longer than a shortsword. These swords can support about a hand... and a half. It is designed to be used primarily one-handed, but can easily switch to two-handed for more powerful strikes. The pommel of the weapon can hold the back half of the non-dominant hand. Primarily used in medieval and European settings. Compare longsword and arming sword.
