* The manga ''Manga/{{Vagabond}}'' has MiyamotoMusashi's implausible fencing powers as his ability to judge distance and range ("seeing one's sword"), his [[MadeOfIron incredible constitution]], and his unheard-of strength. When he takes on the four senior disciples of the Yagyuu, one of them actually believes DualWielding to be AwesomeButImpractical... up until Musashi breaks another disciple's sword (held in both hands) with a one-handed slash. Musashi later manages to split [[spoiler:Yoshioka Seijuurou]] in two (from the left shoulder to the right hip), sever [[spoiler:Yoshioka Denshichirou]]'s left hand, and knock back opponents with one-handed strokes.

* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Auntie Maya [[NamesToRunAwayFrom 'Murder the Gods and Topple Their Thrones']] is a master of the Art of Cutting, so of course she can do things like ParryingBullets and [[spoiler: cutting an angel in half, along with [[SwordBeam the room behind it]]]]. This appears to be a CharlesAtlasSuperpower developed from her training under Meti.

* [[Literature/TheLegendOfDrizzt Drizzt]] from the R.A. Salvatore novels deflects arrows and does a variety of amazing things with his scimitars. Of special note is ''[[Literature/HomecomingDrizzt Homecoming]]'' where Drizzt has some aid from a psionically charged forcefield, but [[spoiler: cutting Demogorgon to pieces with his tiny, tiny scimitars]] seems absurd nonetheless.

* Pearl in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is a tame example since she doesn't really show off that she could do most things listed. But her Holo Pearl ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a holographic version of herself with all of her abilities]]) proves what she is theoretically able to do. Among others, [[https://66.media.tumblr.com/0f23550f8bd4ba73415d9ab545abf3c7/tumblr_nsy3d1qVbN1st6i8ao1_r1_500.png cutting through a tree ''with a balloon'']].
