[[AC:TabletopGames]]
* A combat feat to do this menacingly exists in in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}''. Downing a foe with the Killing Finish feat, provided for use in [[GladiatorGames performance combat,]] results in a demoralizing spray of blood against nearby enemies as you prepare for the next one. The Mythic Champion ability ''Clean Blade'' [[UpToEleven goes a step further,]] and involves taking a free action after a successful critical hit to swipe the blood and gore off your blade directly onto an opponent, sickening opponents and potentially blinding them.

In many recent Japanese films, because the blood is often CGI, this method will be shown as completely effective. This leads to a case of [[RealityIsUnrealistic Reality Being Unrealistic]], as the act of chiburi does not completely clean a blade. If there's enough blood on the sword, it won't even prevent rust. Samurai would often wipe their blade off after performing chiburi to ensure it was clean before sheathing it. [[LawOfConservationOfDetail But don't expect to see that part]].

Related to FinishingMove and VictoryPose (as part of the flair that goes with it), and while not exclusive to katanas( [[RuleOfCool sometimes not even exclusive to swords]]), the [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana looks best for it.]] This may be because it was originally a katana technique (more or less). Compare SmokingBarrelBlowout.
