->''"He had thrown those thoughts as far to the side of his mind as he could manage, because '''holy shit sword-cane'''. '''[[LargeHam Swooooooooooooooord-caaaaaaaaaaaaane!]]"'''''
-->-- About Jeremy Franco, '''[[http://s10.zetaboards.com/SOTF_V2/topic/7286544/1/?x=10 The Only Way Is Up]]''', ''SurvivalOfTheFittest''

A Sword Cane is a short sword or other bladed weapon that is concealed inside of a [[CaneFu cane]]. The cane is opened by twisting the top or pressing a release button, then pulling on the handle to reveal a blade, [[AudibleSharpness often with a "Tzing" sound]]. This weapon is typically used by CulturedBadass characters or as a weapon of advantage by a character who walks with a limp ([[ObfuscatingDisability or pretends to]]). Also popular amongst blind swordsmen. Occasionally, this will be altered by the character having a gun or stun baton disguised as a cane, which are also real weapons (and arguably [[Analysis/SwordCane more practical]]), but relatively rare in fiction.

Connected to, and sometimes overlaps with, ParasolOfPain. Compare CombatHaircomb.

SwordCane is a SubTrope of ArsenalAttire.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime & Manga ]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Kisuke Urahara's Zanpaku-to, Benihime.
** Ryūjin Jakka, Captain Commander Yamamoto's Zanpaku-to/wooden staff, which literally dissolves to reveal a normal katana rather than being a fancy blade.
* From ''Franchise/LupinIII'': Ishikawa Goemon XIII carries a katana with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_sword_mountings#Shirasaya shirasaya style mounting]]. He has, however, disguised it as a cane on a few occasions.
** The TV special ''Anime/LupinIIIAngelTactics'' has two examples. At the very beginning, when Goemon is disguised as a scientist, he hides his sword like this. Later, his opponent also disguises her katana as a cane. This is how Goemon realizes she's hostile: someone who genuinely needed a cane couldn't possibly have climbed the mountain he was meditating atop of.
* Brook of ''OnePiece''.
** [[spoiler: Admiral Fujitora uses a cane sword that doubles as a weapon and a cane for his blindness.]]
* ''UntilDeathDoUsPart'': the main character is blind (he can "see" with the aid of his special sunglasses, but [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual that's a different trope]]) and stores his katana in his white cane.
* Xerxes Break in ''PandoraHearts.''
* ''Anime/LastExile''. [[BadAss Alex Rowe]] has a gun-in-a-cane. Pretty powerful one at that.
* Saito Hajime uses one in his first appearance in ''RurouniKenshin''. It breaks the first time he uses it to perform a [[SignatureMove gatotsu]], [[KatanasAreJustBetter so he discards it and goes back to using a katana]].
* ''SailorMoon'' has Tuxedo Mask's cane, which can function as both a sword or a staff depending on the type of ass-kicking he's in the mood for.
* Mad Pierrot from the ''CowboyBebop'' episode "Pierrot Le Fou" uses a gun-cane in his first battle with Spike. Though Spike doesn't get shot, he still gets his ever-loving ass handed to him.
* Mandala Gundam from ''MobileFighterGGundam'' is one of the more absurd examples, being a HumongousMecha styled after a Buddhist monk with a LaserBlade hidden inside its khakkhara.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* In one of the older MickeyMouse comic books, among the items Mickey inherits from a deceased uncle is a cane that supposedly "will help you in your time of need." The context makes it sound like it's in case he hurts himself, but in a critical moment he figures out that it can be bent and reconfigured into a long-barrelled rifle. (He uses it to shoot a coconut and knock it out of a tree so it lands on the villain's head. This is Disney, after all.)
* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'': Fiddler's Green has one which he carries with him when wandering around in human form. He uses it during ''The Doll's House'' arc.
* Jedi Master Zao has a ''[[LaserSword lightsaber]]'' cane. That is, a lightsaber built into a cane.
* Used by one of the villains in ''{{Tintin}} in America''.
* {{DCU}} character The Shade has one, although it's really just a solid formation of his shadow powers.
* When he first appeared, the Batman foe, Anarky, used a taser concealed in a walking stick.
* The Fourth ComicBook/{{Foolkiller}}, Mike Trace, from the Marvel MAX series has one.
* ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}'': Matt Murdock's cane conceals a variety of weapons and tools, including a billy club, grappling hook and (originally) a small-caliber rifle.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Grendel}}'', Hunter Rose has a cane that expands into Grendel's trade mark "fork on a stick" weapon.
* In ''Comicbook/ThePunisher'' books, Full Moon Killer, Cane and Blind Joe Death had swords in their canes. The latter two even had guns in them.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* R'as Al-Ghul has one with him in ''Film/BatmanBegins'' during Bruce Wayne's birthday party.
* Watson carries one in ''Film/SherlockHolmes''. The villain swipes it in a deleted scene to duel with Holmes.
* In the Direct-To-Video movie ''Sherlock'', SherlockHolmes and Professor Moriarty both have them. Since Moriarity is a much better swordsman, Holmes trades this in for a Single Shot .45 caliber Gun Cane. And [[CrazyPrepared Moriarty turns out to be wearing body armor under his clothes.]]
* {{Zatoichi}}, who needs a cane due to his blindness.
* Alex's cane in ''Film/AClockworkOrange'' conceals a dagger, which is apparently a surprise to the rest of his gang.
* The BigBad of ''TheGameOfDeath'' is a textbook example. [[BruceLee Unsurprisingly,]] [[NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight he gets his ass handed to him.]]
* ''Film/TheAvengers1998''. During the final fight with Sir August, Steed reveals a sword hidden in his umbrella.
* ''Film/TheAdventureOfSherlockHolmesSmarterBrother''. Sigerson uses one while fighting the {{mooks}} during the carriage battle.
* The wizard version appears in the movies of ''Film/HarryPotter''. Lucius Malfoy has a [[MemeticMutation "pimp cane"]] that he unscrews his magic wand from (this was apparently JasonIsaacs' idea).
* ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''. Dorian Gray has one.
* Judge Doom in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', which he uses in the climactic confrontation.
* [[BigBad Gideon]] in ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld''.
* [[PsychoForHire Thin Man]] from ''Film/CharliesAngels''.
* In ''Film/TronLegacy'', Castor's cane doubles as a machine gun. This being {{cyberspace}}, it's completely transparent.
** The machine gun seems to be just for effect, since he wildly shoots it at a crowd, but no-one is injured. On the other hand, when he simply pokes a soldier with it in the back, the soldier ''explodes''.
* The main bad guy in the 1978 ''Film/TheThirtyNineSteps'' carries one.
* Pujol in ''TheTigerBrigades'', a film (from a TV series) about an elite squad of detectives in 1910's France.
* Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine has one in ''Film/TheAdventuresOfTintin''.
* [[TheDragon Killer #2]] in ''Film/{{Bunraku}}'' uses one, although he uses it as a striking cane about as much as he uses the hidden blade
* Zhukovsky has the gun variant in ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough''.
* In ''Film/TheFirstGreatTrainRobbery'', Edward Pierce uses one to defend himself when two thugs try to mug him in a part of Victorian London's seedy underbelly.
* Nick Parker in ''Film/BlindFury'' has one as his primary weapon.
* Alejandro has one when he poses as a Don in ''Film/TheMaskOfZorro''. He doesn't use it though. In fact, the only reason we know it's a swordstick at all is that he checks it briefly before attending the banquet.
* In ''Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera1989'', Erik has a whip which has a hidden knife in its handle
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In a flashback in ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo'', it was mentioned that BadassGrandpa Monsieur Noirtier carried one and was even able to defeat a seasoned military officer armed with a full-sized rapier with it.
* Courfeyrac uses one in ''Literature/LesMiserables''.
* More or less subverted in the book ''Literature/ADirtyJob''. Charlie Asher has one. Then, being an antique, it jams when he tries to draw it. He gets a newer one, then turns out to leave it at home when he just gets a friend to lend him a gun.
* 'Ham' Brooks' preferred weapon in the ''DocSavage'' novels. It's also coated with a drug that [[InstantSedation rapidly produces unconsciousness]] when he scratches someone with it.
* Koudelka in the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' has a swordstick. It gains special historical notability when it is used (by [[spoiler: Sergeant Bothari]]) to [[spoiler: behead a pretender to the throne]]. It has an ejector mechanism that is so powerful that it turns the sheath into a projectile weapon, which is the subject of some comedy as Koudelka slowly masters its workings.
* In Barthe [=DeClements=]'s ''Double Trouble'', villainous teacher Mr. Gessert has a gun version.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'':
** SecretPolice leader Captain Swing in ''Discworld/NightWatch'' carries a sword cane, which like other "covert weapons" (i.e. flick knives and palm daggers) is looked upon with disgust by Vimes. Swing surprises him by not {{Flynning}} but actually being a fairly competent swordsman
** In both ''Discworld/TheTruth'' and ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', rumour has it that Vetinari's walking stick is a sword cane, possibly forged from the blood of his enemies. Vetinari's own view is that if people think your stick might be a sword, they forget that it's [[SimpleStaff definitely a stick]].
* StarWarsExpandedUniverse: An older Lando Calrissian, as of the ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'' series, carries a cane with a small blaster and a voice-activated stunner. (Which stuns anyone ''touching'' the cane -- in case it's taken from him. Lando's [[CrazyPrepared like that]].)
* In one of Creator/AgathaChristie's Literature/TommyAndTuppence stories, Tommy (who is pretending to be blind to win a bet with his wife) has one concealed in his fake "white stick" in one of the tales in ''Partners in Crime''.
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', Harry Dresden has ''two'' of these. One is an authentic 19th-century sword cane that's been prepared to be a focus for magic, useful for moving around without drawing attention and as a backup magic-focusing tool. The other is [[spoiler: one of the Swords (capital "S" there) wielded by the [[KnightInShiningArmor Knights of the Cross]];]] the latter is actually a ''shirasaya'', a type of Japanese sword that, when sheathed, looks just like a long, somewhat curved walking stick, and is otherwise known as [[spoiler: Kusanagi]]
* In ''The Wrecking Crew'', MattHelm fights a man wielding a SwordCane.
* Syme, the protagonist of ''TheManWhoWasThursday'' carries one, mostly because it fits with his sense of living a life of whimsy and adventure, although he actually does know how to fence. The author, Creator/GKChesterton, also carried a SwordCane (and quite frequently a revolver) for much the same reason.
* In one of the ''Literature/FatherBrown'' stories, [[spoiler:the solution hinges upon the murderer using a sword cane.]]
* Doctor Talos in Creator/GeneWolfe's ''Literature/BookOfTheNewSun'' turns out to be armed with one of these.
* The [[TheNthDoctor Eighth]] [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor]] [[ExpandedUniverse Adventure]] novel ''The Slow Empire'' has The Doctor discover that the question-mark umbrella he carried in his previous incarnation contained a sword which had never been used. Presumably because The Seventh Doctor was CrazyPrepared enough not to have to resort to swordplay.
* Creator/PeterSBeagle's recurring character Lal carries a swordcane.
* Granny Carry of the ''Literature/{{Liavek}}'' anthologies has a swordcane, although she never actually has to use it.
* The victim in the Literature/LordDarcy mystery ''Murder on the Napoli Express'' was killed by his own swordstick. This turns out to be a major clue: [[spoiler: He was bludgeoned to death with the stick. Every member of the original list of suspects knew that it was a swordstick, and thus would presumably use the blade if they planned to kill someone with it]].
* In the MatthewHawkwood novel ''Resurrectionist'', MadDoctor Colonel Titus Hyde carries a sword cane and very nearly does the hero in with it.
* In the kid's horror novel ''The Nightmarys'', the main character is afraid that the old man he and his friend are going to talk to has one.
* In the ''Literature/{{Ravirn}}'' series, Ravirn stores his court weaponry (rapier and dagger a la a Renaissance nobleman) in his ski poles in the first book. They're actually useful, too, even though he also carries a gun (he doesn't have any silver bullets, but the silver inlay on the rapier proves very helpful when his werewolf cousin attacks him).
* Steerpike of ''Literature/{{Gormenghast}}'' uses a swordcane.
* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Rehvenge]] in the ''Literature/BlackDaggerBrotherhood'' series has a sword ''pimp-cane'' with a ''blood-red'' blade.
* ''[[Literature/ArtemisFowl Artemis Fowl -- The Lost Colony]]'', Billy Kong uses crutches modified as tranquilizer guns whilst attempting demon capturing.
* Simon Templar, AKA Literature/TheSaint, uses a sword cane in his early adventures, notably "The Man Who Was Clever."
* The narrator in Creator/UmbertoEco's ''Literature/ThePragueCemetery'' carries one so nobody will notice he's armed. The first person he meets immediately congratulates him on carrying such a fine CaneSword.
* Creator/ManlyWadeWellman's OccultDetective Judge Pursuivant has a silver version of one of these, with the words "Sic pereant omnes inimici tui" (thus perish all your enemies) engraved on it. When he becomes too old to wield it, the Judge passes it on to his colleague John Thunstone.
* In ''TheFirstLaw'' series, Inquisitor Glokta, a former soldier turned torturer who has extensive injuries because he was tortured himself, walks with a cane. It has a sword in it, and as the third book reveals he's still capable of inflicting quite a bit of damage with it.
* After Keyoke is crippled in the second book of the ''[[RiftwarCycle Daughter of the Empire]]'' trilogy and has to retire from his life as a soldier, he is given a crutch with an retractable sword blade built into it. [[spoiler:He dies while wielding it in the third book.]]
* The main protagonist of Wolfgang Hohlbein's ''Hexer von Salem'' stories, Robert Craven, occasionally uses one of these that he's inherited from his father. He's never really described as a particularly exceptional fencer, but the weapon itself is magical and rather effective at killing [[CthulhuMythos shoggoths]].
* In the Literature/LordDarcy story "The Napoli Express", a sword cane (and the fact that it wasn't used) provides a vital clue in solving the murder.

* ''{{Series/Highlander}}'' had at least one immortal who carried one of these, in 'The Vampire'.
* A sword ''umbrella'' was a murder weapon in an early episode of ''MurderSheWrote'' [[spoiler: (although it was used accidentally in self-defense by someone who didn't know there was a sword in it)]].
