* One minor villain from ''Literature/MemorySorrowAndThorn'' not only always carries at least one knife, but seems intent on seizing every opportunity to tell people as much, to the point where he's earned the nickname "Avi Stetto" (which means "I have a knife" in the local ConLang). He's nowhere near as scary as he thinks he is, though, and he eventually makes the mistake of trying to take [[CoolOldGuy Duke Isgrimnur]] prisoner while warning him not to make any trouble because "I have a knife." Isgrimnur promptly demonstrates the superiority of GoodOldFisticuffs by laying the villain out with a single punch.

* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'':
** The protagonist Leon is a knife fighting expert who uses his knife for everything from breaking locks to taking down giant mutants, but his AxCrazy WorthyOpponent Krauser cements his status as the game's Knife Nut by having a design on it, and a little notch so he can twirl it.
** Leon then ''gets'' Krauser's knife when you beat him in the [[PressXToNotDie knife fight sequence]]. Ironically, Krauser's weakness in his boss battle is using the knife.
* While calling her a nut would be an insult, [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 Sheva]] stabs [[spoiler: Wesker]] seventeen times with a knife.
** [[spoiler:Jill]] is portrayed as stabbing with her knife when other characters swipe.
** [[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles Claire's]] opening video has her throwing a special forces knife into a zombie. [[FridgeBrilliance She was trained by her brother after all]]

* ''FireEmblem'': Thief/Assassin/Rogue characters. In the early games, these are just swords animated as knives (particularly cool for the assassins). As of ''Path of Radiance'', knives became their own weapon type, which thieving characters used exclusively and Sages could also use (though they'd have to forgo staves to do so), although this latter feature was no longer in effect in ''Radiant Dawn''. Knives return in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' as the weapon of choice of Ninja, their promotions (Master Ninja and Mechanist), Dread Fighters, and oddly enough, Maids and Butlers.

* Yōsuke Hanamura in ''VideoGame/Persona4'' uses knives in battle.
** As does Koromaru in [[VideoGame/Persona3 the previous game]]. He wields them in his mouth due to [[TeamPet his lack of opposable thumbs]].
** [[HeroesPreferSwords Contrasting his predecessors]], [[VideoGame/Persona5 the Phantom]] prefers knives, as befitting a PhantomThief.

* In ''Fanfic/{{Nightblade}}'', Rythin chooses a dagger when he first logs in to SwordArtOnline. It's only after he gets the titular Nightblade that he truly embraces this trope, however.
