->''In the presence of many [[SinisterScythe death scythes]], the motto that a death scythe [[AbsurdlySharpBlade can cut through anything]] becomes a falsehood.''
-->'''Sebastian Michaelis''', ''Manga/BlackButler''



* In ''Manga/BlackButler,'' the Death Scythes can cut through anything. Naturally, a Death Scythe can't cut through a Death Scythe.

* In ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', the [[TheAntiGod Dark One]] can corrupt and destroy anything in existence -- including reality itself -- except his own power. [[spoiler:The key to the Last Battle is an artifact that lets the hero siphon off some of that power and incorporate it into the seals that bind the Dark One outside the Universe, preventing him from unraveling their magic like he did previously.]]

Needless to say, a character who thinks they have a DiscOneNuke in the form of their sword will be very unpleasantly surprised when facing an opponent who can even the odds. They may even get crushed if they've let their skills get rusty by relying on weapon's power. Such duels tend to prove suitably epic.

* 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.
