powered? Not only that, the jet will make every powered swing stronger than if they aren't boosted.

There are also Bianco Angelos, EliteMooks with jet-powered lances that (unlike Nero's, which merely powers his sword up by flames) are used for high-speed joustings.

* Khamsin in ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' uses a rocket to assist his MiniMecha/{{Cyborg}} body's arms in swinging a massive hammer, and uses it as a speed boost. Jetstream Sam's [[VibroWeapon vibro]] katana is a variant on the rocket concept; the sword's scabbard is based on a modified AR-15 receiver loaded with blanks. By pressing the trigger, he can send the sword [[IaijutsuPractitioner shooting out of the scabbard at lethal velocity]]; it's the only way he managed to [[spoiler: sever Senator Armstrong's nanotech-reinforced arm]]
