** In ''VideoGame/HaloWars2'', a flashback to the day Atriox forsook the Covenant shows him doing something similar with the bladed side of his gravity hammer.

Added DiffLines:

* Equipping [[ChainsawGood Salamandra]] to your legs in ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'' will have Bayonetta do this automatically when she runs, complete with a gratuitous amount of SwordSparks.


* Terui Ryuu does this with the Engine Blade during episode 18 of ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' prior to his transformation into Kamen Rider Accel. This may count as a subversion though, since it's not to look intimidating, but rather because the blade is to heavy to carry normally while untransformed.

Naturally, this would be a terrible maneuver to use in real life as it would wear down any good sword, slow down the wielder, and telegraph the coming attack obviously. Thankfully in fiction, we have the RuleOfCool to make up for that. [[IThoughtItMeant No, this is not about drag queens armed with swords.]]

* ''Film/TheCrazies'' has a ''pitchfork'' drag. One of "the crazies" shambles toward a field hospital ward full of people who are strapped helplessly to beds and cannot move. [[NightmareFuel/TheCrazies Horror]] [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice ensues]].

* The boyfriend drags a shovel this way as he decides whether to [[spoiler:finish off the MistakenForDead guy he was planning to bury.]] It's more a sign of reluctance than a deliberate intimidation tactic, but it's no less creepy for it.

** James also does this when wielding the Great Knife, as he's barely strong enough to swing the thing, let alone carry normally. This even becomes a game mechanic; dragging the Knife in the dark will cause enemies to think James is the Pyramid Head and [[TheDreaded run the hell away]].

Added DiffLines:

* During Season Five of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' Jack faces off against a very tall assassin who wields a very large sword he controls musically; it flies around at his command. When Jack, stripped of his other weapons, finally cuts Scaramouche down he drags that sword over before heaving it up for the strike.

* Lucina does this in her approach to attack Captain Falcon in her and Robin's reveal trailer for ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS''. {{Justified}} in that Falchion is an unbreakable magic sword which presumably wouldn't suffer too much from such an act.


* In ''Film/BlackRain'', Sato does this [[spoiler: right before he kills Charlie]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Transistor}}'', the protagonist Red drags the titular Transistor behind her at all times, [[JustifiedTrope since it's almost as tall as she is]]. The "wear down the sword" bit comes up in an unused line where [[spoiler:Royce]] expresses his distaste upon watching Red drag it around. It's still sharp enough to [[spoiler:stab through Red]] at the end.
