* The "Grubberfly's Elegy" Charm, the reward for doing Papa Grub's sidequest, from ''VideoGame/HollowKnight'' allows for this It creates a shockwave-shaped blast from the tip of the Kight's sword, and does 50% weapon damage. It can be stacked with "Quick Nail" for BeamSpam. However, it only works at full HP (but this can be cheated with Lifeblood charms, which grant temporary HP).

* Hype's sword in ''VideoGame/HypeTheTimeQuest'' produces some kind of medium-ranged razor beam when swung, which deals as much damage to the enemies as a hit from the blade itself.

** Expanded universe materials introduce more swords that shoot beams: [[VideoGame/FateExtra Gawain's Excalibur Galatine]], [[LightNovel/FateApocrypha Siegfried's Balmung, Mordred's Clarent Blood Arthur]], [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder Lancelot's Arondight-Overload]], and [[VideoGame/FateExtella Altera's Teardrop Photon Ray]]. A Drama CD jokes about the overuse of this trope with Saber declaring that Sabers must be able to shoot beams. In actuality though, there are about as many Sabers who don't shoot beams as there are that do.

A character will make a slashing motion with their CoolSword, but at a distance, optionally [[ChargedAttack charging the weapon with power right before this]]. What springs forth is a beam of PureEnergy, usually crescent-shaped. It travels through the air or on the ground, either keeping the original size and shape or covering the full sector of the swing thus rapidly growing larger with distance. In the second case, often features AbsurdCuttingPower, allowing TheHero to fell entire companies of {{Mooks}} in one fell swoop. ArbitraryMaximumRange prevents it from cutting anything outside of the intended battlefield.
