How come there\'s no trope image yet?

Removed from Real Life section:

  • Ksenia Rogers is a Russian mistress of the Cossack art of the shaksa: a ritual dance calling on her to manipulate two long sharp sabres simultaneously. Although this fighting style is derided by Western sword-masters as \"windmilling\"note  it is certainly spectacular to watch.

This is really just dancing with props, while the trope is about someone who fights with swords.

Interesting point of view. Refer to astute comment below about \"Does anyone find this trope a bit vague?\" Definitely YMMV!

Yo, could anyone add Altair Ibn la ahad from Assassin's creed? According to the games canon, you lost synchronization every time you got hit. Which meant that the "real" Altair *never got hit*.

In brotherhood, part of living out the ancestor was tending wounds by visiting doctors, Implying that Ezio could lose a few battles

Does anyone find this trope a bit vague? Does this cover any really good swordsmen in the series?

I think it's meant to cover a swordsman who is truly superlative in his abilities. Not just competent or experienced or good with a blade, the top twenty percent or so. This trope applies to the top ONE percent. The guys who can make a blade do incredible things.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
