* In ''Series/ThunderboltFantasy'', [[spoiler:Sho Fu Kan's]] sword turns out to be this. He just paints the sword silver and harnesses his energy to make the blade sharp in order to keep up appearances.

* [[BloodKnight Uzu Sanegeyama]] of ''Anime/KillLaKill'' actually subverts this. His primary weapon is a Shinai and is definitely capable of kicking ass with it, [[spoiler: even beating Ryuko rather handily after he sewed his eyes shut.]] His weapon however is still inferior to the ones used by Ryuko or Satsuki though [[spoiler: as theirs can sever life fibers completely without them regenerating.]]

* Eventually averted by Syrio Forel from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. [[spoiler: In a suicidal last stand, Syrio quickly kills five lightly armored guardsmen with a wooden sparring rapier. When he faces an armored knight, however, his blows have no effect, and his wooden sword gets chopped in half.]]

** Averted with Kenshin in the Hokkaido Arc who, when the need arises, will still ask for the ''sakabato'' from Yahiko. Granted that one of the times, it was against one of Kaoru's students who'd gone berserk, while wielding Shishio's FlamingSword Mugenjin, resulting in his own bokken getting burned.

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', you can transmogrify a [[http://www.wowhead.com/item=8178 Training Sword]] for any two-handed weapons to fit this trope.

trope. In terms of characters, there was the orc Broxigar Saurfang. After losing his axe, the demigod Cenarius gifted Broxigar with a wooden axe made of enchanted wood, stronger and sharper than steel. Broxigar would go down in history by using this axe [[spoiler:to wound ''Sargeras'', the Fallen Titan himself.]]

* Tatewaki Kuno of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' can cut through ''stone walls'' with his bokken; one wonders why he even bothered to upgrade to an actual katana in his second-to-last appearance in the manga.
** And that's only after training! In his first fight, he nearly decapitated Ranma.

** The bokken he improvised would form the template of yet another sword-like training weapon with an oar-like blade known as a suburito, which is heavier.

* ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'': Taken to its logical conclusion. The greatest swordsmen don't need swords at all. They can cut through entire armies with nothing but their will alone. Auntie Maya, the greatest swordswoman the multiverse has ever seen, only drew a sword once over the course of the comic--to fight an angel, which is described as a living nuclear explosion trained in millennia-old martial arts. Even then, she only used a broken sword with barely an inch of the blade left.
