* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Trunks has sheathed his sword at least once by catching it out of midair with its sheath. At least once, [[TalkingIsAFreeAction he lets out a good sentence before the thing fall down]]. Partially justified in that Trunks is strong enough to throw his sword [[SuperStrength into orbit]]. Another time he does this ''without'' taking the sheath off his back, simply leaning to the side as the blade slides in.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FinalFantasyXIII:'' Lightning straddles the line between this trope and UnorthodoxHolstering; her {{gunblade}} is stored in firearm mode, but during combat she keeps it in sword mode except for certain attacks. Consequently, a few cutscenes have her drawing it and switching it to blade in a flashy manner for intimidation.

* Witchers in ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' wear their swords across the back and it's stated that witchers are the only ones who really do so. In the games, they wear both swords with the hilt over the right shoulder, except in the first game, where they're crossed.

* Toboso Yana seems to like this trope. In ''Manga/BlackButler'''s anime season two, [[spoiler: Hannah keeps a demon sword in her esophagus.]] In ''Manga/RustBlaster'', [[spoiler: Kai literally is the sheath.]]
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Orochimaru retrieves the Sword of {{Kusanagi}} by [[StomachOfHolding vomiting it.]] Occasionally it comes out tip first as a surprise attack, or hilt first to be wielded.

** While not having an actual sheath, Qui-Gon Jinn in ''[[Film/ThePhantomMenace Star Wars: The Phantom Menace]]'' ignites his Lightsaber before it's fully left his belt, making it look like he's 'drawing' the energy blade. He does the same thing when 'sheathing' it.

* Link has one of these in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''; two slashes before him, then three spins to the side before sheathing the sword on his back. He does it in the cutscenes after six of the eight dungeon bosses (and two minibosses), but he'll also do it if the player manually resheathes immediately after clearing an area of enemies. It also appears as one of Link's taunts in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]''.

* Vergil and Dante of ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' sheathe the Yamato in odd ways after performing its aerial attack. After performing his aerial rave move, Vergil moves the sword and its sheath behind him at hip level, sheathing the sword behind his back horizontally, the same form was used by Dante in homage to his brother once acquiring Yamato. [[HalfHumanHybrid Naturally]], they're able to do this with flawless precision in less than half a second.
** Vergil, the weapon's original owner, also has variants of his sheathing technique in holding the sheathe behind him, moves the sword over his head and drops it directly down into the sheath after decimating a Hell Abyss ambush. He also sheathes Yamato in the same way as he does with his aerial rave technique - behind him at hip-level - after confronting Beowulf.
** Vergil does the same behind-the-back sheathing in his ''Ultimate VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' victory animation.

* Keiji Maeda from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', whose {{BFS}} sheath descends from the heavens and lands perfectly over the blade after the end of each battle (with the implications that he threw it away at the beginning and can summon it back at will).

* According to Samurai experts, female samurai and ninjas in old Japan exploited a [[ChastityDagger very natural place]] to hide a Weapon of Last Resort, usually a long knife - in a suitably shaped sheath, naturally. Given the difficulty of extracting it whilst wearing the required layers of formal clothing and kimonos, the circumstances in which this dagger could be employed would be limited - and possibly very effective.
