* Palm Siberia from ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' definitely qualifies.After being [[BreakTheCutie blackmailed and broken]] by her teacher, Chizuru Honda of ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'' started to carry a knife with her at all times. She threatens Kako with it when he was about to rape her in her house, and [[spoiler:in the manga, she stabs him in the neck and slits his jugular with it when he [[FreakOut freaks out]] during his battle. And before dying, she passes it down to Kirie, who later uses it to injure Hatagai]].
* PlayedForLaughs in ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'' with [[JerkassGenie Grail-kun]], whose response to ''everything'' is to give people a kitchen knife and tell them to stab their problems.

assassin characters in the series, especially the Malazan Claws, are armed from his LoveInterest Apsalar and becomes scarily competent with pairs knives. Competent enough that he catches HitmanWithAHeart Rallick Nom by surprise.
** Rallick Nom's beloved [[WeaponOfChoice weapons
of knives.choice]] are two oversized, hooked knives which Cutter calls 'pig-choppers' and which are instantly recognizable as his.
** Knives are also Apsalar's favourite weapons. Quick Ben and Kalam recall an incident from when she was still named Sorry in which instead of killing a man, she basically mutilated him until even the seasoned killer Kalam could not watch any longer and had to step in and put the poor sod out of his misery. Apsalar retains her preference for knives even after her [[DemonicPossession possession by the Patron God of Assassins]] ends.
** Smiles is obsessed with her knives. Though she's a soldier and is supposed to use her shortsword in close combat, she prefers to fight with her knives and [[InLoveWithYourCarnage gets off on watching Koryk kill enemies]]. Her squad mates consider her an AxCrazy would-be assassin who cuts people out of boredom.

* ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'': [[spoiler: Yuri is one. If you go down the Yuri route in Act 1, it's revealed that she has a large collection of knives at home, and the one she brings over to the MC's home is [[AbsurdlySharpBlade so sharp that gently touching its tip caused bleeding]]. Yuri even says it "[[FridgeHorror cuts through skin like paper]]". Her SelfHarm tendencies are hinted at, as well, creating a real UncannyValleyGirl feeling about her. This is brought to full light in Act 2, where Yuri basically goes full on {{Yandere}}, courtesy of Monika's MindRape combined with HostileShowTakeover, which takes her obsessive traits and self-harm tendencies UpToEleven, and you end up with some indiscretion shots of Yuri cutting herself (both of which are hijacked by Monika, one is rewound and the other has her physically manifest over the entire GUI), as well as the climactic ending of Act 2, where Yuri stabs herself to death, either as a show of [[DrivenToSuicide pure despair at the player refusing her confession]], or a show of [[EroticAsphyxiation pure ecstasy at the player accepting it]]. [[ButThouMust Either way, she dies]].]]

* In ''Literature/RiverOfTeeth'', Adelia spends most of the time she is with the gang with polishing and sharpening her knifes, of which she is extremely fond and which she uses exclusively when fighting, despite having access to guns. {{Justified}}, since she is a known [[ProfessionalKiller contract killer]], so nobody is particularly surprised.
