* 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, such as Johnny and Baiken, both from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''.

* Imperial Agents in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' do a minor example of this with their vibroknives, when they don't [[HammerSpace simply just backfist it with the knife appearing out of nowhere]]. Notably, Operatives may sometimes appear to pull a knife out, stab, and then place it right back where it belongs before getting back to their normal rotation.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', Link can learn the "Mortal Draw" technique. It requires him to keep his sword sheathed while moving close to the enemy without [[CameraLockOn Z-Targeting]], then draw it with the perfect timing, but will OneHitKill pretty much anything that isn't a boss (and severely damage anything that is) if executed correctly.

It requires him to keep his sword sheathed while moving close to the enemy without [[CameraLockOn Z-Targeting]], then draw it with the perfect timing, but will OneHitKill pretty much anything that isn't a boss (and severely damage anything that is) if executed correctly. If he returns it to the sheath just after, he uses the same flourish as after killing a boss.

* The Tenno of ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' pretty much specialize in this, as they can quick-attack from having ''any'' weapon sheathed or stowed - though of course special mention goes to the Nikanas, which actually fully resheathe after attacks/combos even if the weapon is being held ready and equipped.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has had two characters use such techniques thus far (Adam Taurus and Raven Branwen), both of whom wield Japanese-style[[note]]note that there is no Japan in the world of RWBY[[/note]] swords. It is worth noting that whilst Raven wields a more traditionally curved O-katana which is perfect for incorporating this technique, Adam wields a far older style of blade called a Chokuto with a straight blade, making his incredible swordsmanship even more impressive.
