** GenreSavvy Cory never liked using one, and he's playing Luke. After getting his hand cut off and losing his original, he had no plans to use on again. Circumstances forced his hand, however.

** GenreSavvy Cory never liked using one, one given how obviously unsafe they are, and he's playing Luke. After getting his hand cut off and losing his original, he had no plans to use on again. Circumstances forced his hand, however.

* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' has the Kagemitsu G4 in ''Gun Gale Online'', and is classified as a [[LawyerFriendlyCameo "Photon Sword"]], though it's mentioned by Sinon that it doesn't stop GGO players from calling them names like "[[WritingAroundTradeMarks Light Swords]]", or [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Beam Sabres]][[note]]Nor does it stop RealLife fans of the series from flat out calling it those, or a [[Franchise/StarWars Lightsaber]]. In the anime, it even sounds extremely similar to how a Lightsaber does when swung or powered up or down.[[/note]]. This was considered a JokeWeapon in series since by the time anyone got close enough to someone to use it, they'd be riddled with bullets. Then Kirito gets his hands on one and, thanks to skills honed in two other VRMMO games that emphasized sword fighting, turns it into a LethalJokeWeapon, [[ImplausibleFencingPowers deflecting bullets like a Jedi]]. After he leaves GGO, the Kagemitsu explodes in popularity as players try ([[DifficultButAwesome with limited success]]) to replicate his feats.

* ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX'' had one of these as one of his attacks. The {{Macekre}}ed U.S. production referred to it as an "electro-saber".

* All the various energy blades in ''TenchiMuyo'', although many of these are semi-mystical in nature; the most powerful, the Light Hawk Sword, [[spoiler:comes from Tenchi's own God powers]]. Tenchi's regular sword, named Sword Tenchi (long story), actually serves as a master key to Juraian ships; its combat abilities are just a bonus. It also has the handy ability to throw up a ForceField. Ryoko, Washu, and Kagato have to ability to create energy swords outright, Ryoko's and Washu's being simple orange constructs, and Kagato's being green and more ornate, like a bastard sword. Lightsaber-like sound effects are standard when such swords are activated.
** In ''TenchiMuyoGXP'', energy swords almost identical to Star Wars lightsabers were implied to be both Galaxy Police standard equipment and carried by space pirates. They even had similar color coding - the Galaxy Police used blue laserblades and space pirates used red.
** In TenchiUniverse, the BigBad [[spoiler:Kagato]] has a dark version of Tenchi's sword. It looks more like a large bastard sword in energy form than Tenchi's more Katana like blade.
** Subverted in TenchiInTokyo. Tenchi's sword here is made of Crystals

* ''{{Voltron}}'': Three words: Form Blazing Sword! Oddly enough, it was more or less solid. On the other hand, in the CGI-based {{Revival}}, "Stealth Voltron" is armed with an [[FunWithAcronyms N.R.G.]] Sword.

* A few ''PowerRangers'' and SuperSentai weapons resemble lightsabers. Red isn't evil; it just means its wielder is TheHero. Blades generally glow when doing a FinishingMove, but are not energized all the time and have a metal rod (not sharp; it's the energy that does the damage) that can be seen beneath them. This goes for the aforementioned Faiz Edge and Revolcane/Electro Saber.

* An episode of ''EarthFinalConflict'' features an assassin using dual laser blades to assassinate people, while framing others using dreams. Notable for being of human design, as Taelons aren't big on swordfighting. Additionally, the blade can "extend" from either end, depending on which button is pushed, [[spoiler:which is how Liam kills the assassin]].
