Ever gotten a paper cut while handling particularly thin wire or string? Yeah, me neither. Still, in the wonderful world of anime, yards and yards of really thin wire is one of the most dangerous weapons one can encounter, equally capable of slicing boulders neatly in two, decapitating zombie hordes and picking pockets. What the audience sees amounts usually to Sword Lines sans the sword.

Examples:
  • Walter C. Dornes of Hellsing, a scanlation of which woould be the Trope Namer for me.
  • Yashamaru of Basilisk.
  • Yura of the Hair from Inuyasha.
  • I recall monomolecular trip wires appeared in William Gibson's Count Zero.
