** Take UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm'' where ultralisks can be given a campaign upgrade that lets their blades deal full damage to every target they hit, meaning they cut through anything including multiple tanks without losing momentum.

Added DiffLines:

* The claws of the monsters in ''Film/AQuietPlace'' can cut through pretty much anything the plot demands, including metal plates, until the RuleOfDrama dictates they suddenly can't.


* In ''Videogame/MonsterHunter'' ''Generations,'' the Glavenus, a large theropod-like Brute Wyvern, plays with this trope. Its sword-like tail is shown to be so sharp that it neatly slices the stems off of plants that it walks by. Its tail is so hard that it can only be cut off when glowing molten hot—and even then the severed tail will dramatically fly off and slice into the ground, sticking up. However, a Glavenus must constantly use its whetstone-like mouth to sharpen its tail, lest it go dull.


* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' has Rigardo. He visually resembles a [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent werelion]], but he is an [[FaceMonsterTurn Awakened Being]], and fights with his claws. On his first appearance, he kills four out of five high-ranking warriornesses.

* The Macra from the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E3Gridlock "Gridlock"]]. The Macra can be found at the bottom of the motorway in [[NewNeoCity New New York]] (on New Earth). In the "fast lane" you can reach speeds of up to thirty miles per hour! (Usually taking six years to get to Brooklyn from Queens!) However, this comes with a risk: the potential of being sliced and mauled by the Macra. What's even scarier is that you only really get to see these claws above the fumes.
