* In ''VideoGame/LegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'', Agate uses this as his final S-Craft. Every enemy will be targeted as long as they're within his attack circle range.

** 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.

The one flaw with all swords is, of course, the obvious lack of range. How do you solve this problem? Sword Beams. A character will make a slashing motion with their CoolSword, but at a distance.

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.

* Inverted and defied in ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' where one of the alchemic weapons "Sword Samurai X" takes the form of a sword that has the ability to [[AntiMagic nullify energy attacks]]. NobuhiroWatsuki, the writer, stated that he gave it this power because he didn't like sword beams, as they defeated the very purpose of a sword, so he gave the sword the ability to nullify ''other'' ranged attacks instead.

* In ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam Reborn'', many previously melee-focused suits such as the [[MobileSuitGundamWing Epyon]] can send [[LaserSword beam saber]] slashes flying at enemies as their 'charged shot' attack. The best example is probably the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Susanowo]] piloted by [[CharClone Mister Bushido]], which has a charged LimitBreak consisting of an enormous horizontal beam-slash the width of the screen that flies nearly to the edge of the game's draw distance. It is basically instant death to any {{Mook}}s caught in its path and will usually bring enemy aces or Mobile Armors to their knees.

** Franchise/{{Kirby}}, as seen in the page picture, can fire beams from his sword when he becomes Sword Kirby (In the games it only works while he's at full health, in homage to the Zelda example). Final Cutter a move that can be used by Sword or Cutter Kirby depending on the game is a blade combo ending in one of these and appears as Kirby's Up B special in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games. In ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'' Sword Kirby can fire off a Skyward Strike like in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''. [[spoiler: Master/Galaxia]] Kirby can use a charged version of the move (that closly resembles the anime depiction of the move) in KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror.
