** Averted in ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', where the knife on a character's shoulder can be used for assassinations. however, it's played straight with the Security Armor, which has a large kukri on its right shoulder that forever remains unused.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' has an unlockable katana that can be worn on the back, as seen in the trope image. It naturally cannot be used in game. Also, the CQB armor has a knife on the front of the chest which cannot be used.

* Many miniatures are sculpted with more weapons on them than they are actually designed to use in the game. ''TabletopGame/Malifaux'' is a big offender here, with many figures wearing multiple revolvers but only having a few attacks to use in the game, none of which involve all, or sometimes any, of them.

* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-572 SCP-572]] is a replica sword in a fantasy style, which, when held, produces a major mind-control effect, whereupon people will become convinced of its superior balance and sharpness, of which it really has neither, being purely a decorative piece. It also compels them to perform insane stunts with it (all while convincing them they can), such as deflecting bullets with the blade, taking on trained swordsmen with real swords, and cutting moving cars in half. Due to the prevalence of unnecessary blades facing in odd directions, the slightest swing will result in injury to the user. Fortunately, upon removing the sword from the holder with tongs, the psychological effects can be instanly redacted by a smack on the head.

* In the SoulSeries, customizable characters will sometimes get some. In 4, there is a pirate's belt that has a pistol on it, as well as gloves that have a claw on it. The only fighting is done with weapons.

* In ''{{Slayers}}'', [[{{Stripperiffic}} one of the few things]] Naga wears is a large sword that seems to be purely for show. It gets stuck in the sheath the one time she tries to use it, and she tends to faint at the sight of blood ([[FridgeLogic which shows up a lot around swords]]).

* No matter what he has equipped, Dagran in ''VideoGame/TheLastStory'' always carries a small sword at his belt. [[JustifiedTrope This is later explained]] as being the first sword Dagran ever bought, and it is, in fact, meant to be an ornamental weapon--Dagran just wears it for sentimental reasons.
