* ''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.

* ''TheMalazanBookOfTheFallen'' has several notable ones, such as Whiskeyjack fighting [[spoiler: Kallor]] or Rhulad Sengar and [[spoiler: Brys Beddict]]. Not to mention Anomander Rake, or Gruntle, or Adjunct Tavore Paran... you get the idea.

* ''Anime/SwordOfTheStranger'' culminates in one of the most technically impressive fight scenes ever animated, and can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xryoNr_qhyI&feature=related here]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/PanzerWorldGalient'', many main characters and antagonists use swords, and many HumongousMecha (such like the titular giant robot) are equipped with swords. There're a lot of instances of sword duels, such like the scuffle between [[ActionGirl Hilmuka]] and [[TheDragon Hy Shaltat]] in the fifth episode.

Added DiffLines:

* In a bit of a twist, the FinalBattle of the SherlockHolmes parody ''Film/WithoutAClue'' turns into a sword fight when Professor Moriarty unsheathes his SwordCane. This allows [[FakeUltimateHero Reginald Kincaid]] to finally stand up to Moriarty, as there are functional prop swords lying around and fencing is the one thing he's good at.

[[RoyalRapier Rapiers]], [[{{Pirate}} Cutlasses]], [[KatanasAreJustBetter Katanas]], {{Laser Blade}}s, whatever. At times, a goodie and a baddie just have to have a one-on-one fight, with UsefulNotes/{{Swords}}.
