* Narberal does this in ''LightNovel/{{Overlord}}'' when faced with an undead dragon made of human bones. Since a blunt weapon would be more effective than a bladed one, she ties her sword's hilt to the sheath to use her sword as a bludgeon.

* Occasionally done by Zhou Tai as a juggling attack in the various ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' and ''WarriorsOrochi'' games where he is given a katana. Then again, he's one of maybe two characters to even have a scabbard in the first place.

* Ogami Itto of ''Manga/{{Lone Wolf and Cub}}'' is fond of doing this; it's ridiculously effective when he does it, because his [[HonorBeforeReason opponents are rigidly following the rules of combat]] laid out by the code of the Samurai, whereas Itto has cast that aside and become a CombatPragmatist ''par excellence''.
** It's also sometimes used, of all things, as a defusing tactic - there's multiple times in the series when Itto is talking to high-ranking officials who have soldiers hidden in wait behind thin panels in their castle rooms to strike Itto down. By chucking his scabbard through the walls and taking the doublecrossing official hostage, he buys time to either negotiate his way out, or strike down his target.

* In ''UsagiYojimbo'', Genosuké the bounty hunter dual wields his katana and scabbard from time to time. However, that seems to be more a result of him always casually carrying his sword dangling over his shoulder, rather than a specific technique. Since he never tucks the sword into his belt in the conventional manner, he has to keep the scabbard in his off hand even with the sword drawn. After meeting Gen, Usagi uses the same technique occasionally. He also uses his scabbard to beat sense into idiots who don't deserve to die.
