* ''VideoGame/CrushCrush'': Ayano repeatedly tries to {{MurderTheHypotenuse}}s with knives and cleavers, although, she does use other methods like TamperingWithFoodAndDrink.
--> '''Ayano''' [-(describing her new knife)-]: "Guaranteed not to slip, even when covered in... milk."
** Like with Pamu:
--> '''Pamu''': Wow! Some broad has been stalking me with a knife! She's so disturbed and adorable - I love her!
--> '''Ayano''': I think that Pamu might not be human... She laughs when she's stabbed... [[OrSoIHeard I hear.]]
** And Alpha:
-->'''Alpha''': My handlers told me that I received some poisoned chocolates.[[note]](this could be a possible reference to the game ''VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen'')[[/note]] I wonder if by accident?
-->'''Alpha''': I think someone tried to hack my servers today. And by "hack" I mean with a meat cleaver.
** And Quill:
-->'''Quill''': Are Cat-Catchers allowed to use steak knives for their jobs? Because the one that's chasing me sure is.
** And regarding Elle:
--> '''Ayano''': I heard people with narcolepsy sometimes slip and fall and stab themselves with knives 20 or 30 times. How awful!

Throwing knives are also a very popular ranged weapon in fiction, despite not being very well suited for combat in real life. (It's very hard to get them to [[TheBladeAlwaysLandsPointyEndIn hit point-first]] when aiming at a moving target.)

* Medieval German laws prohibited serfs from carrying swords. Since swords were defined as having a double-edged blade and pommeled-handle, knife makers made meter-long, two-handed blades that [[LoopholeAbuse were still legally knives]] by being single-edged and riveted-handle.

** For a specific example we have Gai Murakumo, the BadAss [[PrivateMilitaryContractors mercenary]] from ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray''. One of the plot points of the ''SEED'' universe is that mecha run off of finite batteries (rather than fusion reactors as in most other ''Gundam'' works), so many pilots prefer to have a non-powered weapon to preserve energy. While GadgeteerGenius Lowe Guele prefers his [[KatanasAreJustBetter "Gerbera Straight" katana]], Gai's mecha almost always wield combat knives. His Astray Blue Frame takes it even further with its upgrades, with Blue Frame Second L gaining [[ArmedLegs blades in its feet]] and the most recent iteration, [[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/MBF-P03D_Gundam_Astray_Blue_Frame_D Blue Frame D,]] being ''literally'' covered with [[AttackDrones Attack Drone]] knives with varying functions.

* Many members of the ''Franchise/GIJoe'' team (as well as Cobra) are skilled with knives, but [[BadAss Snake-Eyes]] has ''collections'' of them. His spike-knuckled trench knives get mentioned more than a few times during the [[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel Marvel Comics run]] alone, and his third costume (assembled from parts taken from his Cobra interrogators) has a pair of knives mounted ''right on his chest''.

There are two things about knives that make them special in movies and television. First, they are badass, since there is nothing more humiliating than being beaten with a blade [[FreudWasRight shorter]] than your palm. Second, they are ''scary'', as a single glimmer from its profile in AxCrazy hands has been known to provoke screeches of horror (that and the possibility that they're more painful than any gunshot will ever be). And sometimes, it is both.

* Dio Brando of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' is famous for his use of throwing knives. He can also [[TimeStandsStill stop time]] to make sure that they hit their target. He actually only used the knives during one fight, after just sort of finding them lying around, but they eventually became a symbol of the character. [[http://www.bbakira.co.uk/cels/mine/jojo/dio1a.jpg This screen]] visually sums up this trope so well, particularly the "[[AxCrazy nut]]" part.
