** Link's swordplanting is first seen in the NES game ''Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link''. It allowed link to "[[GoombaStomp bounce]]" on enemies, quasi-''{{Mario}}''-style.

* Carta Issue and her bodyguards in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' does this whenever they introduce themselves to their enemies, it doesn't stop Akihiro from [[CombatPragmatist shooting them during their speech however]].

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' itself, Chrom also does this after defeating an enemy. [[JustifiedTrope Makes a little more sense]] for Chrom, whose sword, Falchion, is uniquely indestructible, surviving without damage or dulling for thousands of years - it's the same weapon wielded by Marth [[AncestralWeapon millennia before Chrom's time,]] and can be visibly recognized as such by characters old enough to have seen both.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts II Final Mix'', Sora finds the Lingering Will - the AnimatedArmor of a previous Keyblade hero - crouching over its enormous Keyblade, head bowed. In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', we see how it came to be there.

** Ragna does this in his win pose, stabbing his {{BFS}} to the ground and then resting his foot onto the notch on the blunt side of the blade. Kagura also does this in his win pose - his blade is almost as long as he is tall and he can easily rest his whole body on it as if it's a wall.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'', the weapon skill of [[{{BFS}} Wolnir's Holy Sword]] has you stabbing the sword into the ground to cast a shockwave similar to the Wrath of the Gods miracle.

* This is Chrom's VictoryPose as a Lord or Great Lord in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. If he initiates battle, it begins with him pulling his sword out of the ground.

* [[DarkMessiah Rand]] plants ''[[AmplifierArtifact Callandor]]'' in the floor of the Stone of Tear in book 4 of the ''WheelOfTime'', and leaves it to remind the Tairen nobles that he will return. Justified in this case, since ''[[InfinityPlusOneSword Callandor]]'' is [[AbsurdlySharpBlade easily sharp and durable enough to cut into the stone floor]].

* Matt in the ''Videogame/EpicBattleFantasy'' series uses this for some of his attacks. Anna in ''4'' and ''5'' can do this too, but with her bow.

In the tiresome world of RealLife, this is not advised -- mistreat a sword this way and you are likely to chip, dull, bend, or even break the blade. In fiction, of course, anything is possible [[RuleOfCool if it looks cool enough]]. So go ahead and drive your AbsurdlySharpBlade into six inches of reinforced concrete: it'll be fine. That said, this trope has a little backing in reality: sand or soft soil can be used to clean a blood-covered blade if nothing else is around, preventing rust. In any case, it's better to leave the sheathe on when doing this.
