** The story goes that the WW1 tradition began when advancing infantry embedded their fallen mate's rifle into the ground near their body to mark the spot for the following tanks' commanders, in a bid to avoid the tanks squashing them.

* A historical example, and possibly the Trope Maker: the shogun, Ashikaga Yoshiteru was known for his skill with the katana. On 1565, when his small force was attacked by a large coalition Miyoshi force, Yoshiteru knew he was more or less screwed but determined to go down fighting. Bringing out numerous katana (Some sources say a dozen, some others say around a score or so), he plunged them into the floorboards of his castle and killed a large number of enemy troops on his own throwing aside priceless katana that broke down as their blades became notched. However, with no help arriving from daimyo that would have supported him in time, the few troops under Yoshiteru and eventually, Yoshiteru himself were overrun. This may have inspired Archer's Unlimited Blade Works, as his chant suspiciously sounds like a piece of poetry from the same man.
