* In ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'', Mai Kawasumi is a master of this technique, drawing and attacking at lightning fast speed, and resheathing her sword after each strike; fighting style-wise, she's pretty similar to Hibiki from ''VideoGame/TheLastBlade'', with shades of other iaijutsu practitioners in the mix, such as [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Johnny and Baiken]], for example.

* Zhou Tai from the ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors''
series fights with a slightly more realistic version of iaijutsu, save for the fact that in earlier games, he carried a sword that was taller than him, which made his quick strikes look a bit strange. Stranger still is the fact that the series takes place in feudal China (note: not Japan), and in an era long before Japan was ever founded. But because there are only so many interesting weapon styles to spread out over a game renowned for LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, iaijutsu (and his trusty "curved sword", as Koei calls it) gets in there anyway. And just for kicks, he's something of a quiet, serious type.

* Zhou Tai from the ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' series. While the speed of his slashes is something approximating what real people can do, he still goes out of his way to return the sword to its sheath in between attacks.

* The Samurai / Fencer classes in the ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'' series have a move called Iainuki. Depending on the game and class, this is either a quick melee slash or a mighty [[SwordBeam sonic attack]] that inflicts recoil damage on the user.

*** It should be noted that the skill came into play after Wizards bought the rights to ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'', and really was just part of a bad attempt to make 'Rokugan D20'
