%%* * {{Katana}} in Franchise/TheDCU.Franchise/TheDCU. In addition to being a master swordswoman, her sword Soultaker can take the souls of those it kills, storing them inside the sword, where they can engage in limited communication with whoever wields it.



* In ''Comicbook/TheTombOfDracula'' (#49), the Count defeats both Zorro and D'Artagnan with the blade. Given the age of Dracula's birth and the length of his Unlife, it makes sense that he'd be a consummate duelist; as ''Film/GroundhogDay'' showed, practice anything for enough centuries and you'll get really good. Then again, the story does leave us asking OrWasItADream

* Many characters in Creator/SMStirling's Literature/{{Emberverse}}, notably Mike Havel, Norman Arminger, Pam Arnstein, Astrid Larsson, Tiphaine d'Ath, Rudi Mackenzie, and Mathilda Arminger.
** It's also worth noting that all but the last two on the list began training with swords in adulthood, and frequently comment on how ''scarily'' competent the "kids", who are in their early twenties but have trained since childhood, are.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Syrio Forel, Jaime Lannister and Ned Stark all display high skill at swordsmanship. For his part, Jaime Lannister describes the swordsmanship of Barristan Selmy with awe, calling him "a painter who only uses red." In a flashback, Ser Arthur Dayne is shown to be quite proficient at DualWielding, cutting down several Northern men-at-arms with ease and almost killing Ned Stark, who was saved by his friend stabbing Dayne in the back. As of Season 6, [[spoiler: Jon Snow seems to be taking up the mantle of Westeros' legendary swordfighter, slaughtering his way through three of the four major onscreen battles in the series, killing a white walker in single combat, and being called out by Ramsay Bolton as a living legend in the north.]]
