* Subverted in ''Manga/OnePiece''; When Zoro the swordsman wants to knock someone out, he uses the blunt side of his katana, usually saying he did so for the audience's sake.

* Subverted in ''Manga/OnePiece''; When Zoro the swordsman wants to knock someone out, he uses the blunt side of his katana, usually saying he did so for the audience's sake. Nami and Chopper point out that this can still be fatal due to broken bones and internal injuries.



* In ''Anime/TenchiMuyoGXP'', [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Seiryo Tennan]] knocks out [[BigBadWannabe Tarant Shank]] with a [[SingleStrokeBattle single stroke]] of his ''[[LaserBlade lightsaber]]''. He then says not to worry, that he'd hit him with the flat side of the blade. Fellow {{Space Pirate|s}} Kyo Komachi is openly confused, because energy blades don't ''have'' a flat side.

* In ''Anime/GundamBuildFightersTry'', the new and improved Gunpla Battle machine has Damage Level settings which affect the level of damage the participants' models suffer after the game powers down, but has absolutely no effect on the damage it ''seems'' to incur during battle. In one episode, one Gunpla's forearms shatter like glass, but since the machine was set to Damage Level C it's perfectly fine afterwards.

** The ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' games feature characters with incredibly sharp claws or blades like Comicbook/{{Wolverine}}, Comicbook/BlackPanther, [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante, Vergil]] and VideoGame/MonsterHunter, top tier physical powerhouses like [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]], and characters with access to powerful energy projectiles like Comicbook/{{Storm}}, Comicbook/DoctorDoom, [[Comicbook/JeanGrey Phoenix]] and [[Comicbook/MsMarvel Captain Marvel]]. Despite the fact that many of the other combatants are [[VideoGame/StreetFighter human martial artists]] (albeit ones with {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}s), [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil government agents]] or even [[VideoGame/DeadRising reporters]] and ''[[VideoGame/AceAttorney lawyers]]'', they're *perfectly capable of withstanding beatdowns, slashes and energy blasts from the superpowered characters without dying.

* Likewise, in ''[[VideoGame/DragonBallFighterz Dragon Ball FighterZ]]'', Majin Buu can turn his opponents into cookies and then eat them. While this obviously killed people in the TV show, the victims return to normal after being devoured in the game.

** As mentioned in the ''Soul Calibur'' section, ''Soul Calibur IV'' features Darth Vader, Yoda and Starkiller as {{Guest Fighter}}s. Their lightsabers are treated as no more lethal or dangerous than any other weapons in the game, and can easily be blocked.

** ''Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi'' is basically ''Videogame/{{Tekken}}'' [[XMeetsY but with]] Star Wars characters, meaning that lightsabers aren't treated as lethal. In fact, much like the swords in ''Soul Calibur'', they act more like clubs or baseball bats. Even if you defeat an opponent by using a lightsaber, it's still simply classified as a "Knockout" rather than anything fatal.

* The Creator/DCComics fighting game ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' has many characters with lethal weaponry, like the guns that the Joker, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn wield, as well as BadassNormal types with no special protection, such as the Green Arrow. The game justifies this in the story mode: every character who isn't already {{Nigh Invulnerab|ility}}le takes some kind of Kryptonian nano-tech pill to compensate...[[GameplayAndStorySegregation after they've already been smacking each other around]]. In one scene, the Joker takes a burst of gunfire to the chest and says "[[LampshadeHanging I should be dead!]] Thanks, happy pill!".
