* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheSamuraiSword'' features a sword fight between the Black Samurai and Scoob and Shaggy, Scooby won by using the tremendous horse-cut technique.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin''. Sir Francis Haddock and pirate Red Rackham duel with cutlasses over a burning PowderTrail. In a CallBack at the finale, Captain Haddock (using a machete-like dockyard tool) duels the BigBad with his SwordCane (though it's overshadowed by their prior fight with ''dockyard cranes'').

* In ''TheGreatRace'', Tony Curtis vs. NatalieWood at the beginning of the movie, to demonstrate just how good he is. Then, when the race goes through {{Ruritania}} he rescues the prince and engages in a massive swordfight in a parody of ''The Prisoner of Zenda''.

** ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': Ronon has a rather big sword and he's rather good at it (mainly due to him being even more muscular than a Jaffa, he handles it like a really big kife). In fact, Satedans appear to be naturals at sword fighting despite being skilled at guns and [[RuleOfCool gunplay]] too.
