* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', many firebenders apply an aggressive combat style using "fire daggers" which they wield as if holding real daggers with reverse grip.

* Alita/Falis from ''MurderPrincess'' does the katana+wakizashi variety and switches from saber-grip to reverse-grip and back all the damn time with ease.

* Integra ''{{Hellsing}}'' reveals just how badass she can be by facing an army of vampires holding her saber in a reverse grip. On a side note, Alexander Anderson who appears soon thereafter switches from reverse grip to normal and back with ease all the time.

*** Ironically, while [[FireEmblemElibe Roy]] doesn't use the grip in his game, many of his attacks in Super Smash Bros for 3DS/Wii U has him swing his sword this way. * More ''SoulCalibur'' fun. Taki carried two ninjato into battle; her primary seemed to be held conventionally, while her secondary, on the rare occasion it's used, is held this way. In addition, in ''Soul Calibur 3'' you could give the 'Wave Sword' skill set to a generic character; these were twin swords used normally that just curved around the wielder's hands like a basket hilt then continued downwards.

* Vader's apprentice does it in ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'' and ''SoulCalibur IV'' with a [[LaserBlade lightsaber]]. While still not ''wholly'' practical, this is probably one of the best opportunities to use it since it's uni-directional blade.

Holding a blade in this manner imposes some restrictions on the wielder. The wielder's reach and angle of attack is reduced compared to a forward grip, notably preventing any direct thrusts. Additionally this weakens the grip and decreases the blade's stability, due to the weaker pinky taking precedence. Despite this there are advantages with this style, namely that it allows longer blades to be more readily wielded in close combat.

Related to GangstaStyle, with the difference Reverse Grip is actually practical.

Adding information from Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita

* In ''Manga/{{Gunnm}}'' Gally/Alita wields a pair of Damascus style swords this way during her Motorball Career. After she leaves Motorball, she keeps the reforged single blade wrapped in cloth in her apartment until [[spoiler: she discovers Ido has been kidnapped by Desty Nova]]. When [[spoiler: she is blown up by a doll bomb]] at the end of the original manga, it is [[spoiler: assumed to be lost forever]], along with Gally. In Gunnm: Last Order, [[spoiler: Desty Nova integrates the heavily damaged blades into her new Imaginos body]], allowing her to summon one for each arm at will.

* Used in ''DragonQuest: DaiNoDaibouken'', for the 'Avan Slash' attack and other based on it...Dai does this with knives, short swords and BFS alike.
