* Something like this was used in the first episode of ''TransformersVictory''. Fist, Star Saber defeats two gun-wielding Decepticons using only a sword. Later, when the Dinoforce fights the Brainmasters, Goryu criticises one of his underlings for using a gun; said underling immediately switches to an [[AxeToGrind axe]].

* Subverted in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', when Ric Chee and Bobby Jacks fight with GoodOldFisticuffs. When Bobby realises that, conversely to his expectations, he is getting beaten down mercilessly (by a guy with no combat expertise whatsoever) he pulls out a knife (well, scalpel) and [[spoiler: immediately fatally stabs Ric.]]

A subtrope of the InverseLawOfUtilityAndLethality. Works where this is in play are anathema to the KnifeNut. Similar to RockBeatsLaser. Contrast NeverBringAKnifeToAGunfight. Compare NeverBringAGunToAKnifeFight.

* In ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'', several people hold a knife against Shizuo Heiwajima. This includes [[ManipulativeBastard Izaya]], Seiji and an army of possessed people. The latter two manage to cut him quite a bit. This is all pretty much irrelevant when he starts fighting. It's not that they lost because they brought knives. They lost because they're trying to fight ''[[{{Badass}} Shizuo Heiwajima]].''

* Played with in ''{{Juathuur}}'': both Bivv and Mijuu [[spoiler: try to disarm Rowasu, the latter succeeding, but his use of a sword is actually a ''handicap''. They both die soon after.]]

** Strangely exaggerated in ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]]'', where landing an unarmed 4 hit combo after dodging a [[GoddamnBats Jannisary]] will take him out when it can take up to 3 armed combos to do the same.
