* Hiei from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' cut Seiryu 16 times before his enemy knew what hit him. Keep in mind said guy could throw [[SuperSpeed 100 punches in a split second]]! There's also the time Hiei cut Makintaro's arm off, and held said arm in the air, because Makintaro had no idea what was going on. Or the time Hiei stabbed Sniper in the abdomen, intentionally missing every vital organ and muscle, making the stab just enough to put him down.

* ''Anime/{{K}}'' has [[RealMenWearPink Kuroh]] [[TheLancer Yatogami]] and [[AgentPeacock Yukari]] [[TheDragon Mishakuji]], both {{Badass}}, both trained by the same master: [[CoolOldGuy Ichigen]] [[{{Seer}} Miwa]]. Said guy could have probably [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] both of his students but being a PostHumousCharacter (and previously an IllBoy) means that won't ever happen. As is, Yukari is better than Kuroh (who can wipe the floor with everyone except for [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Kings]]) [[spoiler: until the finale of the 2nd season where Kuroh manages to reach beyond him in skill.]] Bonus points for all of them invoking {{Samurai}} aesthetics in different ways.

* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' has quite a few awesome sword wielders: Okita (best sword in the Shinsengumi), Hijikata, Katsura, Takasugi, Nobume, etc. But Gintoki is the main character and big badass with his curry-stained, mail-order, frequently broken wooden sword. He'll use real swords when it gets really serious, and when he's serious, he's pretty much unbeatable.

* Mellar from ''[[Literature/{{Dragaera}} Jhereg]]'' was so skilled at swordsmanship that he successfully fought his way into the House of the Dzur: a task that required him to defeat ''seventeen'' of that battle-loving House's best warriors in one-on-one duels.

* In Daoism-themed ''Literature/DesolateEra'', the most powerful swordfighters are Sword Immortals. Although many immortal practitioners use a sword, a small number actually study and comprehend the Dao of the Sword. Of those that comprehend some of it, one character notes that no one in the entire world has fully comprehended it.
** One Sword Immortal, Immortal Northwalker, was so strong that he single-handedly fought against a supreme clan and won. [[RenownedSelectiveMentor Immortal Diancai]], the one Sword Immortal currently in the Black-White College, had stated that he will only take as a disciple one that can commune with the sword-intent of Immortal Northwalker, which members of the College had taken to mean that Diancai would never take a disciple.
