* Played straight in ''Manga/ShamanKing'', in that only [[MagicAIsMagicA Oversoul]] weapons can beat other Oversoul weapons (and Oversoul armor), but subverted when you get a character savvy enough to straight-up break their opponent's weapon, dispelling the Oversoul immediately.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheLongShips'': Main characters Orm and Toke have andalusian swords, made from steel far superior to what's available to the other vikings. They tend to shatter the swords of their enemies quite a bit, but when the two accidentaly cross blades, nothing happens.

* When ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' first meets the Scotsman, he's surprised to find his nigh-invulnerable sword cannot as much as scratch the Scott's similarly-enchanted weapon. The two spend the ''entire day'' fighting, and only succeed in exhausting themselves.

** A rare exception to this is the beam zanber from ''Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam''; following the description above, the zanber is basically a giant plasma flame without an I-field containing it, and can cut through standard beam sabers by introducing more plasma than their I-fields can handle.

*** [[FridgeLogic It makes you wonder why don't blasters then use some kind of spread spectrum technique.]]
*** Actually the reason was because the alien blasters (known as [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ssi-ruuvi_ion_paddle_beamer Ssi-ruuvi paddle beamers]]) used a unique form of energy that couldn't be duplicated by conventional blasters because of their...[[PoweredByAForsakenChild unusual energy source]]. In any event, a regular blaster set to stun could still be blocked by a lightsaber without needing to re-tune it.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', Harry's and Voldemort's wands behave quite strangely when they try dueling each other, due to the wands being "twins", having feathers of the same phoenix as their respective cores.

So you have a CoolSword, AnAxeToGrind, or another bladed or EnergyWeapon that is [[AbsurdlySharpBlade absurdly sharp]]. Sweet! Now nothing can stand in your way, not even [[RayEnforcedDoor Ray Enforced]] [[ElementalCrafting adamantium-mithril alloy]] bulkheads! ... except for another, equally sharp weapon made of the same material, magical enchantment, technology or by the same UltimateBlacksmith. Why? Well, maybe your LaserBlade's [[SomeKindOfForceField containment field]] is naturally blocked by your opponent's. Maybe they're both so impossibly sharp that the prospect of one cutting the other is like trying to make water wetter by splashing it with more water? Perhaps since both were ForgedByTheGods, their nature as {{Empathic Weapon}}s recognizes a sibling and refuses to harm it?

Whatever the case, neither weapon will scratch or dent, much less become a WreckedWeapon. Only a direct hit on the opponent will end the duel... which is also likely to kill them unless your ImplausibleFencingPowers are good enough to disarm them without, [[JustForPun y'know]], [[AnArmAndALeg "disarming"]] them.
