I Like Swords

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
A Sud Index of Weapons and Wielding Tropes dealing mainly with swords, knives, daggers, and other such weapons.

It doesn't have to be them exclusively, but mainly. And if it's about weapons in general, it doesn't count.

Names for Fighter's Catch Phrase in 8-Bit Theater.

    Problem is, a lot of these are done with other weapons. BFS includes spears, axes and boomerangs, among other things. There are laser scythes (at least two I can think of) and flaming spears. The picture on Licking The Blade has a guy with claws. Blade Run has an example with a big metal staff.

    Corrected the text to account for other weapons at least being included. And the claws on Licking The Blade are still blades.

    What if the claws're just pointed rather than bladed?

    The trope is licking blades. Those claws counted because they were blades.

    ^^ Indexes don't require "tropes" in the title.

    I only brought up the claws because of the "only swords" thing. It's fine now.

    I'd go for a plainer title, since I Like Swords may be easily confused with Welcome To Corneria in the minds of people familiar with the joke.

    "I'd go for a plainer title, since I Like Swords may be easily confused with Welcome To Corneria in the minds of people familiar with the joke."

    They would have read the comic to even think it means that, and if they did, they would know Fighter says this beyond that point.
