In ''Jedi Outcast'' it's mostly just the animations for activating or deactivating a lightsaber while standing still[[note]]as well as an EasterEgg "taunt" function where your character lifts his current weapon above his hand with the Force, spins it around, then lowers it again; active lightsaber blade passing harmlessly through his head during this optional[[/note]], but ''Jedi Academy'' incorporates a lot of spinning and twirling into the fighting styles for {{dual|Wielding}} or double-bladed sabers.

* The Disney comic "La cappa e la spada" has Goofy write a novel where one of the characters used to be a knight who loved to show off by twirling his swords (even lampshading that it's much more impressive than doing it with revolvers.) He stopped using physical weapons altogether after one stabbed his foot while in mid-twirl.
