* The ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' stories have several instances of this. Sturm Brightblade wears his father's armor. He also wields the ''Brightblade'' which is described as a "....splendid, if old-fashioned, two-handed sword". This editor is not sure if it belonged to his father, like the armor. However, the ''Brightblade'' does get handed down to Sturm's son, Steel Brightblade.

** [[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.

* In ''Anime/BubukiBuranki'', the [[EmpathicWeapon quasi-sentient]] Bubuki are normally passed down from parent to child. (Can be subverted, in that a Bubuki can also be taken by defeating its current wielder.)

* ''Franchise/{{Neptunia}}'' (in the [[{{Retcon}} first game/remake]]) has the Trinity Blade, the Dual Revolvers, the Wisdom Bow, and the Trust Spear (collectively known as the [[LegendaryWeapon Quartet Arms)]]. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, by the time Neptune and the other goddesses got to them, they were already [[WreckedWeapon old and decrepit]] and had to be restored into the [[ReforgedWeapon Holy Fang Blade, Hero's Sword, Hero's Spear, and Hero's Hammer]], respectively.]] Subverted in a way however, because while they are pretty decent weapons by that stage of the game, you may already have the bonus weapons from the Coliseum and as a result, act more like PlotCoupons than anything.

** In the new film continuity of ''The Force Awakens'', it eventually falls into the hands of Rey, a new potential Jedi with a mysterious past. Time will tell whether she proves to be another generation of Skywalker to inherit the sword, or whether her receiving it rather than Leia's Dark Side son Kylo Ren averts this trope.
