The one flaw with all swords is, of course, the obvious lack of range. How do you solve this problem? Well, you could [[SwordAndGun carry a gun]], but FantasyGunControl or [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms angry censors]] might object. Then what? The answer in those cases is Sword Beams.

** The Moonlight Greatsword returns as the Holy Moonlight Blade in the DLC of ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', and retains its SwordBeam properties. Also from the DLC is the {{Squick}} of this trope being combined with the game's motif: [[spoiler: Lady Maria]] creates what are basically Sword Beams with their ''blood''.

** [[PublicDomainArtifact Excalibur]] the Sword of Promised Victory, Saber's weapon, can release blasts of destructive power capable of annihilating entire buildings. Due to flawed summoning and Shirou's low prana capacity, Saber cannot use this attack freely.

** The Skyward Strike from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', the first 3D Zelda game to have this as a regular ability, can be used at any amount of health, though the sword has to be raised to the sky to charge up for use, leaving Link vulnerable to possible injury. The beam can be shot off vertically, horizontally, diagonally and as a tiny bullet with a thrust..

A character will make a slashing motion with their CoolSword, but at a distance. What springs forth is a beam of PureEnergy, usually crescent-shaped. These can travel through the air or on the ground. Another version is stabbing or smashing the blade into the ground and creating a V-shaped stream of energy that may or may not actually tear through the earth as it crashes towards the enemy. Occasionally, it may even be a straight beam or bolt that fires down the length of the blade, much like a really sharp gun. This may be fired in a simple [[SwordPoint point]]-and-shoot manner, or unleashed with a thrusting motion similar to the other methods.
