->You don't kill a man by mucking around with [[CoolGun rifles]], [[AnnoyingArrows arrows]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking rocks]] or [[GunsAndGunplayTropes other long-distanced rubbish]]. You kill him by grabbing [[{{BFS}} the biggest bloody sword you can find]], running up nice and close to him, and [[OffWithHisHead chop the dumb bastard's head off]]!

->"That thing was too big to be called a sword. Too big, too thick, too heavy and too rough. It was more like a large hunk of Iron."
-->--'''Manga/{{Berserk}}''', narration describing Guts' Dragon Slayer.

->'''Rickert''': What's this?\\
'''Erica''': Oh, that? The ''[[{{BFS}} Dragon Slayer]]''.\\
'''Rickert''': Dragon Slayer...?\\
'''[[TheBlacksmith Godo]]''': A king sent out a proclamation long ago to bring him a sword that could kill a dragon, and so the lord put me on the job. At that time I'd gotten sick of doing work for nobles. "Make 'em refined, make 'em elegant..." Swords are just large butcher knives, after all. Tools meant for ''killing'' people. And so I forged it, as it was ''described''. A sword that could butcher...a ''dragon''.\\
'''Rickert''': S-so then?\\
'''Godo''': I almost got hung out to dry. So I ran away from the castle town, and I've lived here quietly since. I sure was ''young'' back then. Mighty things, things that could kill, that's all there was for me. But if anyone could handle ''this'', it'd still just be a hinderance. I don't like losin' track of the essence of a tool, but that's exactly what I did here. Now it's a good reminder.\\
'''Rickert''': Can it...kill one? Could this really kill...a dragon?\\
'''Godo''': If there ''were'' any dragons. But you know, this ain't even what you'd call a sword. It's a meaningless slab of iron you can't even lift, for killin' dragons and monsters that ain't even real. Your friend looks like he's about to fight a dragon, though. Seems to want to fight even after losing his hand and eye. He ain't up to the job, is he? Dragons are dragons because humans can't ''beat'' 'em."

->'''Hippolyta:''' And you could not find a bigger sword, Artemis?\\
'''Artemis:''' Sword? This is but my dagger.

->"You see, 'cause, right now, [[LampshadeHanging this is the part in any RPG ever where you have to kill God.]] It's pretty rad. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday I love killing God; I do it every day.]] You know, some people have breakfast. [[BadassBoast I kill God, with my super giant... house-sized sword, you know.]] It's, uh... I have like three mortgages on it. Two families could live in it, but instead I use it as a weapon. It's pretty rad."

'''[[Videogame/DragonAgeOrigins Sten]]:''' This weapon is off balance to the point of uselessness. It may as well be scrap metal on a stick. Can I assume you wield it with the intent that it [[CompensatingForSomething compensate for your inadequate genitals]]?
