** In the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Tellius]] games, Greil carries his axe like this. His son Ike will pick up the habit upon promoting to Vanguard, for both swords and axes. He also has it as one of his idle animations in SuperSmashBrosBrawl.

** [[SwordAndGun Alvin]] from ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' as well as ''VideoGame/TaleOfXillia2'' holds his BFS like this with one hand, regardless of if he's equipped with a single edge sword, and lets his gun dangle in his other hand. He does this whenever he's not using the sword: even when he's firing his gun and thus assumes a less relaxed pose, his sword rests on his shoulders.

** In ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'', any large sword being only one handed will be held on the shoulder, which makes more sense as it would be dragged across the ground otherwise. * [[Franchise/GodOfWar Kratos]] loves this one.

** [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100312142126/kingdomhearts/images/8/8c/KH_Sora.jpg Sora]] from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. He tends to default to doing this when he's running around with the Keyblade out when there are no enemies around.

* Requisite pose for many WorldWarTwo or TheVietnamWar action-adventure novels where the cover features the protagonist armed with a belt-fed medium machine gun. If they were [[SightedGunsAreLowTech holding the weapon at the hip]], the novel just looked like a {{Rambo}} rip-off. Having it resting on the shoulder accompanied by {{permastubble}} and a [[ShellShockedSenior war-weary expression]] made the hero look authentically BadAss.

* Shardbearers in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' will sometimes carry their blades in this fashion if they don't want to just dismiss them. Since they also usually wear Shardplate, which is the only armor capable to stopping said blades, it adds a major intimidation factor; those blades normally cut through people [SoulCuttingBlade without any resistance].

* Chakaal the warrior-woman in early issues of ''GrooTheWanderer''. Since her neck is drawn quite thin and her sword is very thick it always surprised me that she didn't manage to decapitate herself accidentally.

* Gennosuke from ''UsagiYojimbo'' carries his katana like this. A better idea than most examples, since his sword has a sheath, but one still wonders why he doesn't tuck it into his belt along with his wakizashi.
