* ''SwordArtOnline'' presents this quite literally in its third season, where Kirito enters the world of Gun Gale Online. Despite having poor accuracy and fighting many opponents with guns, Kirito is able to defeat them all by equipping a photon sword and using his reflexes to deflect bullets, something no other user has ever even attempted.

** That said, sword-armed cavalry still had one last victory against guns at [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charge_of_the_Savoia_Cavalleria_at_Izbushensky Izbushensky]] during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, when the Italian cavalry regiment, the Savoia Cavalleria, discovered that almost four times their numbers in infantry with artillery support had surrounded them during the previous night and so charged and routed the enemy. That said, everyone involved quickly understood the charge succeeded partly because [[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough the Soviets weren't expecting the Italians to be that crazy]] and partly because the cavalry was armed not just with sabers but also with carbines (indeed, the squadrons who still had to charge supported the charging ones with their guns), pistols, grenades, and, much to the Soviets' surprise, ''light artillery'' (every Italian cavalry regiment was supported by horse artillery).

*OFF RECORD NOTE. Imagine different situations. Trying to hunt down a guy in a swamp, fumble the gun into water,gunpowder wet, WHOOPS. But if you're facing another guy with a guy who's 3 ft away IRl...Better to have that gun. It all depends on where you are.

* All of the "Franchise/Halo" games feature plasma-sword wielding Elites, alien commanders who charge into battle against gun-toting humans. Multiplayer and campaign missions often see the gun vs sword debate play out literally, when the covenant plasma sword faces a human 8 gauge shotgun. There is even a multiplayer mode called infection dedicated to scatterguns or pistols vs swords.

* Played straight in ''{{Gunz}}''. Your character is equipped with guns and swords. Swords do more damage, can deflect bullets, and glitch up the game in advantageous ways. Guns are guns.

* StarCraft has a surprisingly high amount of bladed weapons for a sci-fi game. Protoss Zealots for example can easily cut down most of the conventionally armed Terran Infantry, and the sequel even gives them a charge ability to quickly close the distance.

* A futuristic take on the trope from ''VideoGame/{{Strider}}'': [[BadAss Hiryu]] is the unmatched expert of the Cypher, a LaserBlade which generates an edge of [[AbsurdlySharpBlade white-hot plasma]]. His first rival, the BountyHunter Solo, instead relies entirely on firearms to fight, using a giant plasma gun/cannon, a handgun and other weapons like mines and missiles.

*** Two factors make guns preferred for most people. First is the power beind the "hokey religion" is actually real and observable. Second, only a select few can actually tap the power and it still takes training to use the power to effectively use the sword.
