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.

* In ''Literature/SnowCrash'', Raven, named by Hiro Protagonist as "[[{{Badass}} the baddest motherfucker in the world]]," is an Aleut from a tribe that perfected the art of making glass knives with [[AbsurdlySharpBlade monomolecular edges that cut right through kevlar]]. Raven carries an arsenal of them, using them for throwing and fighting. Before the story begins, he steals a nuclear warhead from a submarine after slaughtering the entire crew with his knives. Uncle Enzo, the leader of the Mafia as well as an ex-commando, always carries a straight razor in his pocket. In the end, [[spoiler:the two have themselves a knife fight. Enzo manages to shatter Raven's knives, but gets the worst of the exchange]].

** Do not forget the final fight of the single player campaign! You fight the BigBad with nothing but your knife, [[spoiler:but you seem to drop it when he stabs you into the chest with his own.

* Billy Rocks in ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven2016'' has dozens of knives on him. He kills more people with them than he does with his guns. His attempt to instruct the townsfolk in the basic principles of knife-fighting does not go so well.

* In the old ''Warhammer Battle'' skirmish-based spin-off, ''TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}}'', there's a special mercenary character called Johann The Knife... and he has a special rule called Knife Fighter Extraordinaire that allows him to bypass the limit of three knives thrown during his turn, allowing him to throw six knives per turn if he doesn't move. He's so good with knives that they count for swords during battle.
