** Even more with the type advantage the Figting type (whose pokemon and moves got a heavy martial arts influence) has against the Steel type (That includes a lot of bladed pokemon)

* 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.

* Never bring a knife to a fistfight with ChuckNorris: he will boot it off your hand in a sec, as seen in ''Film/TheDeltaForce''.

** Pawniard and Bisharp are literally made of sharp blades and their Dark/Steel typing gives them a ''double'' weakness to Fighting attacks.

** He uses this so much that it's made into a gameplay mechanic in VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity: once you unlock Knife Counter Takedown, you can instantly defeat any mook that attacks you with one once you figure out the timing for it, including the armored ones.

* In ''Manga/AsuNoYoichi'', when Yoichi has an early fight with Washizu, it starts out as a fist fight, which the former enjoys despite getting hit rather hard. Then Washizu pulls out a weapon (in the manga, a knife. In the anime, a [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms ridiculously oversized pair of boxing gloves resembling a spiked mace]]). In both versions, Yoichi destroys the weapon and berates Washizu for relying on those things instead of his own strength, and promptly [[CurbStompBattle beats him in one blow.]]

* Most of the fights the protagonist of ''VinlandSaga'' loses are to unarmed opponents. Likewise his father was a master at this trope when fighting a horde of mooks, beating them all without drawing his sword.
