* As the name suggests, the players in ''SwordArtOnline'' use swordplay in their fighting. No {{Flynning}} here in the original story arc as players [[spoiler: are trapped in this virtual MMORPG]] and must literally fight their way through many enemies. In a later story arc in the light novels in another virtual game where guns are the primary weapon, the hero still prefers a sword. As TheAce, [[ImplausibleFencingPowers he makes it work.]]

* Averted in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. Judge Doom has a SwordCane. Eddie Valiant opens an AcmeProducts box marked "Singing Sword" and draws out the sword...which [[VisualGag starts singing]] "Wicked Witchcraft" by FrankSinatra. Eddie quickly picks another box.

** May also be justified by the better [=SOLDIERs=] having SuperReflexes which makes [[GunsAreWorthless Guns relatively useless against them]]. Zack -- recognized in canon as pretty much the top [=SOLDIER=] around except for Sephiroth -- appears to be capable of pulling off some serious [[DodgeTheBullet bullet-dodging]] (as seen in ''Last Order'') as well as the [[CutscenePowerToTheMax bullet-blocking shown in the intro cutscene]] of ''CrisisCore''.

* The 90th episode of ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale''.
--> '''Cecil:''' I want to tell you I drew a glowing sword, and he drew a sword made of fire. I want to tell you our mighty blades clashed above our heads, as our elbows and faces met. I think itíd be a really cool thing to say that I then pushed him back with a kick to the chest and swung my blade down upon him as he tried to deflect it with his own, my sword shattering his, causing him to burst open with white light and doves, and order returned for good to Night Vale. But what Iím going to tell you isÖ I donít own a sword.

* The most famous sword fight in all comics history is probably [[http://atomicwanderers.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/batman-244-scorpion.jpg this climactic one]] that concludes the Ra's al-Ghul arc of ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'', fought between a [[WalkingShirtlessScene shirtless]] Batman and Ra's al-Ghul (Batman still has his cowl on). The fight drags on for the better part of the day, and [[DiabolusExMachina only ends when a scorpion stings Batman]]. Talia lingers behind to give Batman the antidote, and that and HeroicWillpower drag him back to Ra's's tent, [[http://atomicwanderers.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/rasalghul_bythegods.jpg causing the latter to exclaim]]:
--> '''Ra's al-Ghul''': ''By the '''gods'''! You pursue me past your '''dying...'''! Are you '''man'''...or '''fiend from hell'''?''
--> '''Batman''': *[[TalkToTheFist One Punch]]*

** The climactic dual between Rhaegar Targaryen and Robert Baratheon at the climax of Robert's Rebellion (though Robert is wielding [[DropTheHammer an exceptionally large warhammer]]) wherein Robert wins the throne by smashing Rhaegar's chest in.
** Bronn's TrialByCombat against Ser Vardis Egen to decide whether Tyrion is executed or not. The latter is armored head to toe, providing protection at the expense of speed and movement, the latter in little more than his daily wear, trading protection for maneuverability. [[spoiler: Bronn's unorthodox, streetwise technique wins him the day.]]
