** 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.

* 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.

* 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]].
