Added whooshing noises, such as when some karate dude is slicing his hands through the air - whoosh, whoosh.
Also, swords that go "schwing!" when you pull them from their scabbard are dumb. Swords that go "schwing!" when you swing them through the air are inexcusable.

My favorite example of the latter was in Daredevil's second season, when the titular blind superhero is fighting undead ninjas, and is defenseless against them because he can't hear their heartbeats! I'm like, "Dude, just listen for their swords! Every time they swing one, it sounds like they're operating a leaf blower!"
