** Brienne of Tarth also shows significant skill, but is generally underestimated because of her sex.

** Brienne of Tarth also shows significant skill, but is generally underestimated because of her sex. She's the winner of Renly's tourney, defeating all opponents, including the Knight of Flowers who's taken on the Mountain and the Kingslayer and won. She quickly takes down the members of Renly's Kingsguard who try to kill her, and even the Kingslayer seems impressed when he first sees her in action. Come Season 3, she easily defeats Jaime. Granted, he was wearing manacles at the time and somewhat out-of-practice, but it's still no mean feat, particularly since near the end of their engagement, she actually looked slightly ''bored''. She also beat Sandor Clegane, who himself is one of the few people who can match his brother, The Mountain.

* The old ''Tales'' character cameo BonusBoss in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' coliseums will invariably be billed as either a stupendously skilled foreigner or the greatest swordsman in the world. There are also these in actual canon, and often they will berate the BookDumb main character for their crude self-taught technique instead of a "real" style. Early examples: Ras to Rid in ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'', Kratos to Lloyd in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''.

* Most of the characters in ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' are all accomplished swordsmen. The creators ranked the swordsmen in the following order: Will is the greatest, followed by Barbossa and Norrington tied second. Jack is the least of the four, but he is enough of a trickster to match blades with anyone of the the aforementioned.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11962940/1/ A Brighter Dark]]'': The very first scene is of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Corrin]] walking into a dungeon, arming three prisoners, and ordering them to try to kill her. At the same time. Naturally, she's able to defeat them all with barely any effort.
** And she's still no match compared to her brother.

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonandtheOlympians'': Percy Jackson is said to be one of the best swordsmen in the past few hundred years. He's survived fights with four Titans, beat Ares at the age of 12 (admittedly, it was only a flesh wound, but still), and carves his way through the Roman Twelfth Legion during war games.

* Practically every Jedi character with a real role in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequel trilogy. Qui-Gon Jinn displays quite a lot of skill, but even he's defeated by Darth Maul, who fights him and Obi-Wan Kenobi to a standstill at the same time. Obi-Wan later defeats General Grievous (who notably wields ''four'' lightsabers against Obi's one), as well as the newly minted Darth Vader. Yoda also reveals himself to be an incredible swordsman despite appearing to be decrepit in the original trilogy. However, Darth Sidious (who earlier in the film defeated ''four'' Jedi Masters single-handed) manages to best him in their duel. In episode II, Dooku easily handles both Obi-Wan and Anakin; in episode III, after Dooku incapacitates Obi-Wan, Anakin easily bests him.
