* Takamichi from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' uses what is called "iai''ken''"; in other words, pulling his ''fist'' out of his pocket, attacking and putting it back so fast it looks like he's just standing there. And he can use it to create ''[[SwordBeam Fist Beams]]''.

* Dias Flac from ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory'' is one. Certainly of the [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]] type, he contrasts the other characters by his skills rarely doing more than one hit. His most comboish attack deals four hits, as opposed to the 10 of his counterparts. Unfortunately, this greatly decreases his usefulness in the endgame since his attacks have slow startup and his normal attack isn't affected by items that would normally make everyone's normal attacks his several times. He also however, uses his sword out of his sheath during the cutscenes as another contrast.

** Adam even [[spoiler:severs Yang's right arm through Iaijutsu in Episode 11 of Volume 3. It's worth noting that, per WordOfGod, his attack was actually strong enough to instantly deplete Yang's Aura and harm her through it]].

** Adam even [[spoiler:severs also uses Iaijutsu with his Semblance, which allows him to absorb energy from attacks that he blocks with his sword and unleash said energy via a quickdraw strike. He uses this technique to [[spoiler:sever Yang's right arm through Iaijutsu in Episode 11 of Volume 3.
