It's often a tribute to the fighting skill of the unarmed man or {{Fire Forged Friends}}hip of the one who gives it -- especially if he does not use the StockPhrase but the other characters do so anyway, or someone else says "Give him your sword." Location may also be significant -- throwing a sword to a man who is toe-to-toe with the monster is only prudent (and avoids ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks). Of course, failure to do that get the inverse effect, which may shade into TheDogBitesBack, if a {{Mook|s}} refuses to give the BigBad something without which he is powerless and helpless.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': In ''Mazinger-Z vs Great General of Darkness'' -the movie retold the last chapter of ''MazingerZ'' in a severely improved way, closing off the original series and kicking off the sequel, ''Anime/GreatMazinger''-, Kouji has been defeated by the Mykene War Beasts, his HumongousMecha is utterly trashed, it barely functions, and its weapons are useless. [[BigDamnHeroes Then Tetsuya shows up piloting Great Mazinger]], and as he begins to deliver a sound beating, he throws one of his swords at Mazinger-Z saying "You can use this" ([[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks and conveniently and intentionally impaling a Warbeast]]). Kouji catches the sword, and even though his HumongousMecha is barely capable to move, he still manage to destroy one of the Mykene War Beasts, and he impales the Mykene commander was leading the squad. The sword was returned to Great Mazinger afterwards, along a heartfelt "Thank you".
