* Averted in SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth'' with the [[AbsurdlySharpBlade planar swords]]. While a planar (or [[SharpenedToASingleAtom monoatomic]]) sword cuts anything, it's similar to a [[StarWars lightsaber]] in this regard in that it passes through like knife through butter. When two planar swords meet, one will always cut through the other. Which one is determined by the angle of impact and the sharpness of each blade. This completely changes how people fights with these weapons. So no {{Blade Lock}}s here. Unlike lightsabers, anyone can use a planar sword given sufficient training, and you can get them anywhere, although they're only produced on one planet.

** When first meets the Scotsman, he's surprised to find his nigh-invulnerable sword cannot so much as scratch the Scott's similarly-enchanted weapon. The two spend the ''entire day'' fighting, and only succeed in exhausting themselves to the point where neither can lift their swords anymore.
** When asked what made his sword special, the Scotsman replied "magic runes, laddie". This implies that his claymore, like Jack's katana, is endowed with magical properties, by gods or otherwise.

** Subverted in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', the beam sabers are formed with Mirage Colloid without the use of I-Fields, beam sabers can go through each other. During the fight of the Destiny Gundam versus the Infinite Justice, the Infinite Justice cuts the Destiny's [[{{BFS}} Arondight Anti-Ship Sword]] in a half. However, shields can block beam sabers.

* Beam sabers in ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' are made up of a superheated [[MinovskyPhysics Minovsky Particle]] plasma encased in [[SomeKindOfForceField I-fields]]. I-fields cannot block regular matter, so what allows beam sabers to cut through almost anything is the fact that hitting something with your saber is literally letting the plasma of the saber eat through whatever you're trying to cut. When two beam sabers make contact, the I-Fields from both swords are repelling the plasma of the other.

** According to [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse ancillary materials]], Sith lightsabers have properties that can occasionally cause the blade they are clashing with to deactivate. This explains why Obi-Wan's lightsaber flickered when he fought Vader in ANewHope.
