* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Sabrina taught several of her Kadabra to project Psycho Cut energy through their spoons to create this effect. Apparently she plagiarized this from a Pokémon Coordinator, though she insists she learned it legitimately.

* ''[[VideoGame/SaGa Final Fantasy Legend]]'' has a weapon called an "L-saber". The Japanese version straight up calls it a "lightsaber", and the ones featured in the Nintendo DS remake of ''[[VideoGame/SaGa2 Legend II]]'' looks exactly like, well...

** A few characters in the ''No Need for Tenchi''/''All-New Tenchi Muyo'' manga series swung around a few laser blades. The first villain sought to make a blade that was stronger than the Light Hawk Wing sword. Didn't work out for him. The last villain from ''No Need'' challenges Tenchi with two high-powered laser blades mounted on his hands. When he's forced to cut off a hand, the energy blade is so powerful in digs its way into the ground and causes his planet to go up.

* [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Archons]] from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' have a holy Blade of Light that basically functions as one of these. They're especially good at dispelling wards and magical defenses and purging evildoers. Some Archons may have a very [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity broad]] definition of 'evildoers'.

Note that, although the most prolific TropeCodifier is the [[StarWars lightsaber]], you'll almost never see the word "lightsaber" outside of that particular franchise for [[BlandNameProduct understandable legal reasons]]. Thus, such blades are given any variety of slightly less, but still awesome monikers, such as "beam saber", "energy sword", "plasma knife" and, for the [[JustForPun paronomasiacs]], "laser blade."[[note]]Because it sounds like "razor blade", get it?[[/note]] The energy blade concept tends to be OlderThanTheyThink; the TropeMaker is the "force knife" from the ''Literature/LuckyStarr'' novels written by Creator/IsaacAsimov under the pen-name Paul French in the [=1950s=].

* A lightsaber in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' films is composed of a metal hilt that projects a three-foot colored beam of energy that serves as a blade. The energy is provided by a "kyber crystal" stored in the hilt. They can cut through virtually any physical substance, even thick metal bulkheads, but bounce off of each other to enable swordfights. George Lucas intended them to make Jedi more like a classic KnightErrant or samurai. Because they are close-range weapons and can be used to block and reflect blaster fire, they are supposed to be seen as defensive weapons, showing that Jedi use force only to protect themselves. This characterization is pretty much abandoned with Jedi of the Dark Side, who use lightsabers just as readily. Lucas sometimes calls them "laser swords" in interviews and in fact uses this term in the original script, this carries to the prequel where child Anakin explicitly called it a "laser sword" when he saw Qui-Gon for the first time and immediately recognized the latter as a Jedi Knight. Several characters also have their own take on the lightsaber:
