* Valyrian steel weapons from ''Series/GameOfThrones'' are so valuable they are usually these. Examples include Ice of House Stark which was gifted to the Starks by Aegon the Conqueror after Torrhen, the last Stark King of Winter, bent his knee and Longclaw of House Mormont. House Lannister lacks such a sword, so after defeating House Stark, Tywin Lannister has Ice reforged into two Valyrian swords for his House. Jaime's sword is named Oathkeeper after he gives it to Brienne, and Joffrey dubs his Widow's Wail. Only the Targaryens have matched such a status symbol with their swords Blackfyre and Dark Sister.

** Averted with House Bolton. Instead of having an inherited sword, they just have flaying knives - a "signature weapon" but one that isn't passed down from one generation to the next.
--> '''Roose Bolton:''' They passed down not a Valyrian greatsword, but a knife - honed and thin enough to fit between the topmost layer of skin and the tissue below... and peel.

* Stormbringer and its twin Mournblade are these in Literature/TheElricSaga. They are only able to wielded by Melnibonean royalty, in fact it's believed that not even the gods are able to hold onto them. The two swords are passed down from one royal generation to another until they were lost for centuries, only to be rediscovered by Elric and his evil cousin Yrkoon.

** This is [[PlanetOfHats the hat]] of the Vostroyan Firstborns who, instead of having weapons issued to them which are expected to be returned to the Munitorium at the end of service like every other regiment, instead each weapon is property of the family that has it. Where possible, weapons are brought back to the homeworld and returned to the families to which they belong, who then pass the weapon down to the next firstborn. Their weapons are all considered priceless family heirlooms, especially the older ones.
