** ''And'' when O-Ren deals with the belligerant Yakuza boss. Realistically however, the sword is still clearly bloody as she sheaths it right after.

* Notably averted by Ryoma from ''PowerStone''; one of his victory poses involves him wiping off the blade with a few pieces of paper and letting them [[DramaticWind dramatically fly away in the breeze]].

* In the ''{{Onechanbara}}'' games, this is a gameplay mechanic where slicing through hordes of [[ZombieApocalypse zombies]] (whose blood is probably well-rotted) without cleaning the blade can cause it to get stuck in the corpse, leaving the player vulnerable.

* There's some discussion and debate amongst modern iaido and kenjitsu practitioners as to whether the chiburui's primary purpose was to get blood off at all. While it will shake some of the blood off if it's a particularly messy cut (or if you just killed multiple people), the use of a cloth to wipe off the rest is more or less essential for anyone who doesn't want a rusty sword. Other interpretations of the chiburui include a signal to any surviving opponents that hostilities were over (while still keeping the sword in a position where it could be used if said opponent didn't agree) or to ingrain a habit for the samurai to take a moment to check his surroundings for any additional threats before sheathing his blade.

* Galad does this in ''WheelOfTime'', but characters usually just clean their weapons with a cloth, because the swipe is not 100% effective.

* Vergil does this quite a few times with his sword, Yamato, in ''Franchise/DevilMayCry 3''. [[note]]Those paying attention, however, will see that before he sheathes Yamato, he also wipes the blade by running it through the fingers of his left hand which is holding the sheath[[/note]][[note]]He actually doesn't, not in any cut scene or in any battle[[/note]]
