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.

* In ''SoulEater'', Medusa does this to Erika and the eldest Mizune sister. It's done with drool after she shoves her hands in their mouths to make them shut up. [[spoiler: It turns out to be a bit of subtle foreshadowing, as she later reveals she did this to [[BodyHorror implant them with snakes]] which allow her to kill them at any time]].
