* The climactic battle of the first season of ''LightNovel/ChivalryOfAFailedKnight'' boils down to this. [[WeakButSkilled Ikki Kurogane]] faces off in his final match against [[TheAce Touka Toudou]] in his final match, which he must win to graduate. He puts his all into a single strike, and she responds in kind [[spoiler: and in the end he is victorious, earning himself a place in the next Seven Stars Tournament.]]

* The third mission of ''VideoGame/VanguardBandits'' features a duel between [[TheObiWan Kamorge]] and [[BigBad Faulkner]] that ends this way. There is also a move called the Wind Strike, which essentially allows players to do this to enemies.

* In ''Film/WarCraft2016'', [[spoiler:the climatic fight between Lothar and Blackhand]] goes this way, with the former sliding low and striking under the latter's guard. He adds a second strike, but that's mostly a finishing touch - his opponent would've bled out of the first cut anyway.

Note: it is also incredibly common to have [[DelayedCausality a beat go by]], one character (99% of the time the hero) falls to one knee as if he has been hit, and then have the other character fall over dead. In RealLife, UsefulNotes/{{kendo}} kata #7 ends this way. Another common subversion involves revealing ''both'' combatants to have been injured (or killed).

Swordplay equivalent to ShowdownAtHighNoon. One use of the FlashStep. Probably implies a OneHitKill. If the battle is one sided and the winner uses a flash step, then there is a good chance that the loser will perform a SnapToTheSide before realizing that they've just been cut in two. For battles that end with one strike, see CurbStompBattle
