** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]]'s InfinityPlusOneSword, Ragnell, was once wielded by Ike's father Greil, and would later show up in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]'' in the hands of his descendant Priam. Unlike the Falchion, though, this does not seem to be a requirement to wield the weapon (in-universe at least -the Tellius games still have it restricted to Ike in gameplay). Ettard, Ike's starting weapon in ''Radiant Dawn'', may also have been one, it's never specified, but a flashback shows Greil holding a sword that looks strikingly similar.

* Duncan used his father's sword twice in ''{{Series/Highlander}}'' The first time was to defeat the immortal that killed him as a symbolic gesture of avenging his death. The second time was using it as a symbol of his true self when fighting off the EnemyWithin created by taking a dark quickening (basically absorbing the essence of another immortal so evil is corrupted him)

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'', they directly say in the description for [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/oodoov.htm Oodoov]] that certain examples of this creature are passed down as family heirlooms. Of course, given that the creature's power to absorb pain tends to turn the user into TheBerzerker, surviving long enough to pass it on is easier said than done.

* Valyrian steel weapons from ''Series/GameOfThrones'' are so valuable they are usually these. Examples include Ice of House Stark 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.
