StaringThroughTheSword. Resting the sword on the shoulder is also a common practice in certain German-based zweihander fighting styles, as it let the wielder conserve energy while the weapon was out, and it could be very quickly snapped up into a guard or attack position.

* Requisite pose for many WorldWarTwo or TheVietnamWar action-adventure novels where the cover features the protagonist armed with a belt-fed medium machine gun.

Having it resting on the shoulder accompanied by {{permastubble}} and a [[ShellShockedVeteran war-weary expression]] made the hero look authentically BadAss.
