* The Claymores from ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' often plant their swords in the ground to have [[MundaneUtility something to lean against when they are sitting or sleeping]]. Justified in this case, since the swords in question are made from ThunderboltIron and so never break or need sharpening, no matter how much abuse they're put through.

* The introductory illustrations of ''BattleForWesnoth''[='s=] ''Heir to the Throne'' campaign show Delfador making the point that even a hotshot princely swordsman shouldn't mess around with a SimpleStaff, as their duel concludes with Delfador leaving said staff behind ''rammed through the prince's body into the ground''.

* 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.
