* 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.

* ''Literature/TheVorkosiganSaga'' features a variant; Koudelka's SwordCane has a spring-loaded release mechanism powerful enough to launch the sheath with enough force to knock a man over and probably crack some ribs.

* Sarah Gizka, One of the iconic characters of ''Song of Swords'' uses the steel scabbard of her rapier as an off-hand weapon to parry with. This can be done in-game, and is reasonably effective.
