* In an episode of ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Jaime and Bronn get held at spearpoint by a few Dornish riders, and Bronn does this when they are told to toss their swords in the sand. Not willing to get caught, Bronn ends up pulling out a knife and tossing it into the chest of one of the riders; planting his sword saves him a precious half-second to rearm himself before the other riders attack him and Jaime.

* Dementia D'Rose has done this with her knife as a sign she's ready to fight. She makes people bleed [[BareFistedMonk the hard way]], she just takes the knife around because [[CloudCuckooLander she likes the way it looks.]][[/folder]]

* The FinalBoss of ''ReturnToCastleWolfenstein'' uses this to compensate for his lack of ranged attacks: he jams his sword into the ground, causing the rain of rocks from the construction above and sending Blazkovitz flying towards him, into his reach.

* Happens a few times in the ''[[VideoGame/GodOfWarSeries God of War]]'' games, mostly with the [[{{BFS}} Blade of Olympus]]. In VideoGame/GodOfWarII, Zeus stabs the ground with it and single-handedly ends the war by [[OneHitPolyKill banishing all of the Titans]] to the underworld with the ensuing magical attack. VideoGame/GodOfWarIII has Kratos stabbing the ground with it for a magic attack in a manner reminiscent of the way Zeus used it.

* Not an attack precisely, but the opening cinematic to ''WorldOfWarcraft: Wrath of the Lich King'' features Arthas stabbing the runeblade Frostmourne into a glacier as part of a spell to reanimate the massive blue dragon Sindragosa, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkyGhSBc-do as seen here.]] He later uses the same method to shatter the ground beneath the Argent Coliseum during the Trial of the Crusader, dropping characters into the Nerubian underworld to face Anub'arak. It's also one of Arthas' idle animations-- he stabs Frostmourne into the ground so he can use both hands to adjust his gauntlets. Apparently they're a little too big for him.

* The [[HumongousMecha Shogun Executioner]] of ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert 3'' has a special ability that slams ''three'' {{Laser Blade}}s into the ground at once, producing [[ShockwaveStomp a massive shockwave of power]] that destroys anything around it. Not that the Shogun Executioner has much trouble on that front...
* In ''GuildWars2'', Mesmers and Guardians can stab the ground with their greatswords, the former to attack the enemy with a ghostly sword blade erupting from the ground, the latter to magically burn a protective symbol into the ground.
