* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'': The Hurricane Lance was first used by Commander Hurricane, then it was passed to his daughter Ardent Sentry. It is not strictly an ancestral weapon because it is always passed to the current Captain of the Royal Guard; it's just that most of the time, it is a member of the Sentry Family. Flash Sentry's father Stalwart Sentry passed it to his successor Blueberry Frost, since Flash was too young for the position.



*** Apparently it's a family heirloom now; Ben's holding it on the cover for ''[[FateOfTheJedi Backlash]]'', and the ''Legacy Era Campaign Guide'' says it was passed down through the line, though where it is by 137 ABY is unknown.

* In ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'', Film/JamesBond uses an old hunting rifle that was once his father's to fight off the {{Big Bad}}. [[spoiler: How'er, it's his old ASTON MARTIN, the one from ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' that really is his true ancestral weapon.]]

* The two swords Lloyd receives near the end of ''VideoGame/TalesofSymphonia'' belonged to both of his "fathers." From his biological father, [[spoiler:Kratos, he receives the Flamberge, which Kratos had been using for the latter half of the game]] and from his adoptive father Dirk he receives the Vorpal Sword, a blade Dirk forged himself. Together they're called the Material Blade.

* If you do a long sidequest in ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' you can get Guy one. [[spoiler: It's the [[NamedWeapons Jewel of Gardios]] and after the Hod War and death of the rest of his family, Duke Fabre took with him and hanged it in the entrance hall of his manor. Getting it back is also a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] moment of [[FriendshipMoment friendship]] between Guy and Luke as he immediately swears fealty to him as he once promised.]] It's quite useful on a second playthrough as it works as a InfinityMinusOneSword as equipping it allows access to his second LimitBreak.

* Kakashi Hatake of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' used the tanto of his father in Kakashi Gaiden. The tanto gave off a white streak of chakra when it was [[http://images.wikia.com/naruto/images/archive/2/21/20110220005127!Kakashi_White_Light_Chakra_Sabre.png swung]], which gave the original owner, Sakumo Hatake, the nickname "Konoha's White Fang" [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it broke when Kakashi used it to defend himself and Rin from a swarm of Iwa-nin]].

** Valyrian steel weapons 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.

* ''WonderWoman2017'': The God-Killer sword, treated as sacred by the Amazons and powerful enough to kill a god. Zeus forged the sword and gave it to the Amazons in the event that Ares returns. Diana steals it with the intent of killing Ares. [[spoiler:However, when Diana confronts the God of War, he vaporizes the blade and reveals that she herself is the God-Killer. Zeus conceived her through Hippolyta, so that when the time comes, she will confront Ares and slay him once and for all, explaining that only a god can kill another god.]]

* The [[KatanasAreJustBetter Dragon Sword]] wielded by [[HighlyVisibleNinja Ryu Hayabusa]] is an ancient sword handed down by generations in the Dragon Lineage and the Hayabusa Clan. It is also mentioned in both the NES and the XBox series that Ryu got the blade directly from his father.

* The Gran Centurio, which has been passed down the Fantasinian royal line which may or may not have started with the sword's creator, [[spoiler:Nessiah.]] Its most famous wielder was [[YggdraUnion Princess Yggdra Yuril Artwaltz]], who obtained it after the death of her father [[VideoGame/BlazeUnion King Ordene]].

** 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.
