* A good way to show the Emperor's savage nature in the Original Trilogy was for him to not use lightsaber but hurting Luke directly with the Force. While the prequels and additional material gave more in depths explanation about Force lightning, the Sith Lord fighting dirty unlike [[FallenHero Vader]] cemented the difference between the two and why Vader could redeem himself.

* Dane Whitman - Marvel's Black Knight who was an ex-Avenger, ex-Defender, ex-Ultraforce, ex-Excalibur and current MI13 member is a highly skilled scientist and engineer and has made high-tech weapons before. But because he's a descendant of a knight of the round table, he prefers using magical swords and armor as a link to his ancestry (not to mention his magical items are better than what he can manufacture with mundane tech).

* The [[KingdomHearts Keyblade Wielders]] were once common enough to form a Knighthood. By the time the first game rolls around, there are only a few left.

* ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'' Features "Durus Flamma" weapons, that look a lot like lightsabers and are used by the elves exclusively for duels. And a dual bladed one, that is completely impractical, (even in-universe) but the one person who uses them anyway is just that {{Badass}}.

* Hiro Protagonist, the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin hero protagonist]] of ''Literature/SnowCrash'', carries a [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]] for various reasons, not least because it makes him look like a {{Badass}}. In one job he was equipped with a particularly powerful pocket-sized handgun that looked like a fashion accessory and so was inadequate for intimidation. Carrying a sword, on the other hand, gets you a little more respect.

* Swords, particularly some varieties thereof (the Rapier and the Jian, for instance) have often been the mark of noblemen, military officers and others in high social standing, presumably owing to the fact that being allowed to openly go about armed was a privilege of belonging to those classes and swords were conveniently easy to carry while still leaving both hands free. (Sometimes the expense of a good sword over another weapon using less metal is also cited, but depending on the historical era some swords, especially mass-produced ones and/or war surplus, could actually be had for fairly cheap.) Ironically, one of their functions was to hack at any DirtyCoward who tried to break formation and run away.
