* One of [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Lloyd Irving's]] {{Victory Pose}}s is to ''throw his blades spinning up into the air'' which both land perfectly into their sheaths without him even moving them. It's somewhat justified, however, by the fact that Lloyd Irving is empowered by an [[MacGuffin Exsphere]], which gives him superhuman strength and reflexes... and, by virtue of being the protagonist, he has the most powerful one among his allies.

* 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.

* In the ''NightWatch'' movie EvilSorceror Zabulon pulls a sword ''out of his own spine'' (or maybe uses the spine itself as a sword).

* According to Samurai experts, female samurai and ninjas in old Japan exploited a 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.

* Although frequently worn on the back in most games and popular culture, in reality swords were almost ''never'' worn on the back except for rudimentary transport. Unless using an improbably short and dangerous scabbard, a sword worn on the back cannot be any longer than the arm of its wielder or else it could never be drawn without first taking it off of the back. There are interesting ways to work around this problem, such as a sheath that is partially open-sided, but this would introduce rattling and exposure to the elements that would be unwelcome in actual use.

** Darknuts from the same game will swing the scabbard off their longswords after they toss their {{One Handed Zweihander}}s when you strip them of all their armor. The scabbard can actually strike Link for light damage.

* Link has one of these in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''. Mostly it just involves lots of random spinning until he gets around to putting it back in. He always does it in cutscenes, 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 ''SuperSmashBros Brawl''.
