* 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.

* Major Olivia Armstrong in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' carries a saber everywhere she goes, and she's usually seen holding it in this position when she's standing and talking to anyone.

* Jin Kisaragi of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' has a MagicKnight variation as his [[FinishingMove Astral Heat]] "Arctic Dungeon": he stabs the ground with his [[AnIcePerson magical ice]] [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]], causing ice crystals to erupt across the ground. If his opponent is touching the ground when this happens, they are frozen and, when the ice shatters, instant-killed. In the third game onward, his Touga Hyoujin and Gekka Hyourou super moves all involve stabbing his katana to the ground to impale the foe with ice spikes.
