* Omi in ''LightNovel/{{Kanokon}}'' has this as his main attack technique. This makes sense, as he is actually a kamaitachi in human form.



* This is precisely what "Fuuhazan"/"Wind Slash" attack does in ''VideoGame/HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe'' (also counts as a SwordBeam). In the TV anime, [[{{Samurai}} Yorihisa]] performs the move the very moment he receives the [[PowerCrystal Dragon Gem]] (albeit without the associated [[CallingYourAttacks incantation]] the first time around).



* In {{Worm}}, this is [[AnimalThemedSuperbeing Stormtiger]]'s main superpower.

* Nearly every ''SuperSentai''/''PowerRangers'' character or HumongousMecha ever to wield a sword or other bladed weapon (and a few with staff-like weapons, in fact) is capable of an attack like this. As the show [[LongRunners continues to stand the test of time]], these attacks become more and more elaborate to keep it interesting, such as arcs of energy that fly around crazily before striking the opponent, or the wielder slashing several times at once (as several ghostlike images occupying the same space in a manner resembling Film/TheMatrix's bullet-dodging.) When a Ranger goes from real space to a fancy background, you know his bladed weapon is about to finish what lasers, cannons, fireballs, and HumongousMecha could only start. Even, no especially, if the enemy is about twenty yards away.
* ''Series/KamenRiderHibiki'''s Armed Saber was capable of this.
** Pretty much any Kamen Rider with a sword can do it. Series/KamenRiderDouble doesn't have a sword until they get Xtreme Form, but they manage to do it with the Metal Shaft using the Metal Twister Maximum Drive.

** The legend of the Kamitachi was originally thought to come from the cuts on skin created by the vacuum in the center of whirlwinds. However the established theory now is that the sudden cooling, caused by the vaporization of moisture on exposed skin, in very cold, windy conditions causes the skin to split open and become chapped. Thats why the Kamaitachi legends are common in snowy regions and is why there is little to no blood, and the pain will set in later, and you’ll suffer for days as the wound heals.

* One of the melee-based [[FunctionalMagic charms]] in ''{{TabletopGame/Exalted}}'' enables the use of an energy-shockwave variant.
** Iron Raptor Technique specifically (the 'Sandstorm Wind Attack' variant). Ironically, Shining Razor Wind is *not* this trope, just really deadly.



* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 3''/3.5ed features the Blood Wind spell, which invokes this trope to allow melee attacks to function as ranged.

** The ''Blood Wind'' spell enchants a character's natural weapons, allowing them
to allow make melee attacks to function with them at range.
** ''Flaywind Burst'' creates a blast of wind that knocks enemies back while also damaging them. However, the actual cutting is done by dust and grit that's summoned along with it (the spell has both the [[BlowYouAway Air]] and [[DishingOutDirt Earth]] descriptors).
** The ''Yari of Air'' spell from ''Oriental Adventures'' [[SpontaneousWeaponCreation creates a spear]] out of condensed winds, which can be wielded
as ranged.a normal weapon.

Ichigo then says that he didn't fire a Gestuga Tensho at all, that was just ''the air being displaced from a normal sword swing''. [[OhCrap Suddenly the bad guy isn't so cocky anymore]]]].

* The Kamaitachi from Japanese folklore are said to resemble weasels with sharp, sickle like claws, the attacks happen instantaneously, with the weasels moving faster than the eye can see. Accounts of their attacks vary; some claim that they attack in trios,the first sickle weasel attacking with a strong gust of wind(or a whirlwind) knocking their victim to the ground the second weasel attacking using it's sickle-like claws to cut a deep gash into the skin, and the final weasel applies a medicine that numbs pain and stops bleeding. While others claim the monster works alone attacking with razor sharp wind that cuts the victim, and the Kamaitachi then licks the blood off the victim till the wound is dry, and continues this till the victim is dead.

*** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' spinoffs CrisisCore and DirgeOfCerberus have more specific examples. Though not necessarily wind, Sephiroth will slash the air and produce a kind of white shockwave that travels for a long distance (called "Draw Slash") in Crisis Core. In Dirge, Rosso the Crimson attacks primarily with slicing blades heavily implied to be wind, and since Weiss the Immaculate has (almost) everyone's powers, he is an example of this trope, as well.
