Swords and guns, probably the two coolest and most versatile weapons in all media. As many creators have seen what those weapons could do, they are always trying to make best out of those weapons, [[GunsVsSwords as if each is trying to out-cool the other]] and in the process, they tend to mimic each other.

To put it simply, this is a list of tropes from GunsAndGunplayTropes and ILikeSwords (or other tropes from WeaponsAndWieldingTropes) which have similar concepts to each other, the difference being the weapon used: Melee Range. For example, "X Trope from GunsAndGunplayTropes is Y Trope from ILikeSwords [[RecycledINSPACE WITH GUNS!]]" And vice versa.

Related to TheMusketeer, SamuraiCowboy, GunsVsSwords and its opposite SwordAndGun, all of which combine swords and guns.
