*** ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe shield]] is partially (or in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, wholly given adamantium is exclusive to the ''Film/XMen'' movies) built out of vibranium. Thus it's the reason for being [[MadeOfIndestructium indestructible]]: everything that hits the shield just bounces off by being absorbed and reflected.

* Franchise/{{Superman}} did this to defeat the Cyborg Superman at the end of ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'', punching through his chest and vibrating so fast that his body, weakened by Kryptonite exposure, was completely obliterated.

* TheFlash can do this with his entire body, as demonstrated numerous times by Wally West when he chainsawed his way through objects instead of vibrating through intangibly like Barry Allen.

* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' has vibroblades... usually used as practical tools, they do a fine job of carving up flesh, too, and some [[PoweredArmor Battle Armor]] suits mount vibroclaws for hand-to-hand combat. There are also [[HumongousMecha Battlemech]] sized vibroblades, but they're rarely seen outside of arena combat.

* The SuperPrototype Lancelot from ''CodeGeass'' uses [[DualWielding twin]] "Maser Vibration Swords", initially making it the only powered weapon-wielding [[HumongousMecha Knightmare Frame]] in the world. In the second season, similar blades are given to the Lancelot's production model version as well as the Ace Customs descended from it. The Guren SEITEN has a dagger version. The Black Knights were also able to get a Katana version developed for use with their newer frames, referred to as a Revolving Blade Sword, ostensibly developed from different technologies (it's really a ''[[ChainsawGood chainsaw]] [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]]'') and meant as a counter to the [=MVSs.=]

Compare HotBlade, which uses heat instead of vibrations to cut better than a mundane sword. A subtrope of AbsurdCuttingPower. For lower-tech cutting weapons with moving parts, see ChainsawGood.

to:

A variant of this is blunt weapons (sometimes even the person's own body) that are charged with high frequency vibrations; in this case it's used to deliver higher striking power, as well as giving the target a violent dose of vibrations, which [[AntiArmor can bypass defenses]].

ChainsawGood. For another weapon that uses vibrations, see SonicStunner.

* They're also favored weapons in ''{{Rifts}}''. More like a necessity, given that everyone and their mother has body armor that can stop a tank shell. Strangely enough, depending on which book you look at (it's not terribly consistent) a vibro-blade doesn't actually shake the blade itself but surrounds it in a ''vibrating energy sheath'', bizarrely invalidating it for this trope by making it a sort of LaserBlade with a solid core.

* A common melee weapon of evil speedsters in Series/TheFlash2014, who vibrate their hands into lethal weapons. It also lets them become intangible leading to BloodlessCarnage as they attack internal organs like hearts instead of cutting apart bodies.
