* ''Series/{{Lucifer}}''. The trope is lampshaded right before Maze uses her throwing knife to take out a hitwoman with a submachine gun ''[[OffhandBackhand while hiding behind a table]]''.

** Pyat Pree though he could keep Daenerys and her dragons chained up for eternity. Bad idea.

* ''Literature/MartinFierro'': This NarrativePoem talks about the war between the Argentinian Indians and the {{Gaucho}}s trying to SettlingTheFrontier. This trope is deliberately averted by the Argentinian Army. The {{Gaucho}}s have guns and the Indians have only [[BladeOnAStick polearms]]. But the Army wants the Gauchos to be CannonFodder, so they invoke GunsAreUseless by [[ArmsDealer selling the bullets]] to ThePioneer.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDsn-RRmDXU a sketch]] on ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie'', two men about to have a duel are presented by a referee with a choice of weapons, sword or pistol. Laurie's character selects the sword, which the referee hands him-- then ''hands Fry's character the pistol.'' Laurie's character protests that this was not what he meant, and [[HilarityEnsues silliness ensues]] as they try to figure out a way to make the fight fair since those are the only weapons they have.

-->"Well it's just that when you said sword or pistol, I sort of assumed that we would both have the same one, if you know what I mean..."

* During UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution at the [[https://www.ncpedia.org/moores-creek-bridge-battle Battle of Moore’s Creek Bridge]], a Loyalist militia unit mostly composed of settlers recruited from the Scottish Highlands found themselves across the aforementioned creek from a Patriot unit they had been chasing through the North Carolina swamps. Assuming their enemies were fleeing because of the abandoned camp they had found on the west bank of the creek, at daybreak [[BraveScot a group of 500 Loyalists armed with broadswords and dirks attempted to storm the other side]]. They quickly found out that the only bridge had its planks removed and its railings greased, and the well-entrenched Patriot forces had targeted the east bank with muskets and two artillery pieces. As another Patriot commander said while explaining to a newspaper why his forces were late to the fight, [[CurbStompBattle “The battle lasted three minutes.”]]

* In ''Anime/OnePiece'' during the Skypiea arc, Zoro found himself fighting a Shandian warrior named Braham who specializes in using flash guns in battle. Zoro had a tough time fighting Braham due to the latter keeping his distance while Zoro was strictly a close-combat fighter due to being a swordsman. However, Zoro managed to use [[SwordBeam Sword Beams]] for the first time allowing him to strike down Braham from a distance and defeat him.
