[[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.

This is noted to be extremely skilled discovered when Shirou copies his 'sword' and the skills coming with a blade. She's nowhere near it and whips out his ultimate attack Nine Lives, that is ''three Tsubame Gaeshi [[UpToEleven executed at the level of a Servant (she challenges Saber at one point and is almost instantly defeated), but she is recognized same time]]''. To add insult to injury, that's actually an inefficient adaptation, as a world-class swordswoman despite her rambunctious personality.Nine Lives was originally an ''archery'' technique that would strike ''one hundred times per arrow''.

** Luke Skywalker has become such a god with a lightsaber that one VillainSue who thinks of himself as a GodModeSue admits to himself that Luke is better with a lightsaber than he is. In ''[[Literature/FateOfTheJedi Fate of the Jedi: Abyss]]'', Luke is able to pick apart a Sith teacher ''in one opening'' while facing two highly skilled attackers simultaneously, despite having been weakened for several ''weeks'' (and near death!) by performing the Jedi equivalent of astral projection. And when lightsaber sparring with his own son Ben, no slouch despite his youth, he defeats him without taking out his lightsaber for a very long time, and at the start doesn't even have to take a step.

** An in-universe short story states that there were some Redguard masters so skilled that their blades could be used to [[FantasticNuke cut atoms]], causing the massive explosion that destroyed their home continent of Yokuda. Cyrus the Restless (the protagonist of the spin-off game ''Redguard'') bluffs out Vivec, an archetypal GodModeSue, with the very ''idea'' of it and forces the god to flee.
