* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': In [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS3E14LegacyOfMandalore "Legacy of Mandalore"]], Ezra tosses Sabine his lightsaber when they see Gar Saxon [[spoiler:sneaking up on Sabine's mother with the Darksaber. Sabine proceeds to defeat Saxon in the ensuing duel.]] (If you're wondering why Ezra didn't just deal with Saxon himself, Mandalorians and Jedi have traditionally been enemies for a ''long'' time. And, also, given that Sabine's been estranged from her family for a long time, it's more meaningful if Sabine does it. Finally, the ensuing duel proves to her family that she's worthy [[spoiler:of the Darksaber]].)

* Done with shields in the duel scene in ''Film/TheThirteenthWarrior''. Each combatant is given three shields to use. When a shield is broken, fighting stops so that the combatant can retrieve his next one.
