* In Clay and Susan Griffith's Vampire Empire series, it is TwentyMinutesInTheFuture and remnants of a steampunk British Empire barely escaped a vampire apocalypse. Among the weapons used by humans against the vampires is the Fahrenheit Blade. These are blade weapons, including khukris, that have a special sheathe which will coat the steel blade in volatile chemicals. This heats the blade to extremely high temperatures and are more devastating against the heat-sensitive vampires than regular swords.

* The Thermic Lances in ''VideoGame/{{X-Com}} 2'' are a combination of Hot Blade and {{Vibroweapon}}, and are pretty effective against the [[DemonicSpiders Demonic Crabs]]. [[note]]Ok, they are actually lobsters.[[/note]]

* In the first ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' film, after Will [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks uses his sword]] to jam the door of the smithy and cut off Jack's escape route, he grabs a replacement out of the forge. It looks impressively glowy but doesn't last very long; fortunately there are plenty more on the racks.

** [[https://www.crucible.com/eselector/general/generalpart4.html Such special metallurgy has existed since the 1930s or so]] with "high speed steels" - which were developed in response to modern industrialized machinery (like drills, end mills, ect.) becoming more capable and having higher RPMs. So, instead of finding roundabout solutions to the problem of drill bits heating up and dulling because of it, high speed steels were developed which simply retain their regular hardness at high temperatures with addition of molybdenum, tungsten and cobalt. With some of these steel alloys, ''operating'' temperatures in excess of 500°C (almost a thousand degrees Fahrenheit) are possible. More if you're willing to sacrifice some hardness. To make things even better for potential application of this, high-speed steels are popular in high-end cutlery and knife making. Steels like CPM M4 are becoming extremely popular because of how "hard" the steel can be ran (usually well above 60 HRC, which is about where most steels start to top out at before becoming too brittle - some alloys can almost reach 70 HRC, which is nearly on par with the higher end of ZDP-189) and it's wear resistance. Steels like CPM M4 and CPM Rex T15, especially, on a properly forged knife would seem like space voodoo magic to someone unaware that such capabilities were possible. Heating one up, however dangerous and unwise that would be to use, is certainly possible.

* In ''OnePiece'' [[ShockAndAwe Enel]] does a variation by using his electric powers to turn his trident into molten metal in order to burn [[RubberMan Luffy]], who's immune to direct attack by Enel's lightning.
* ''{{Yaiba}}'' has Gold, who can apparently heat up his gargantuan SinisterScimitar somehow. However he does this once.
