* Myth/GreekMythology: The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necklace_of_Harmonia Necklace of Harmonia]], which was made by Hephaestus, for his wife Aphrodite's illegitimate daughter Harmonia. It allowed any woman that wore it to remain [[TheAgeless eternally young and beautiful]], but was also cursed to bring disaster to its owners. It was worn by the queens and princesses of Thebes, most notably Jocasta, the wife/mother of Oedipus.

** the Alicorn Amulet is also this, with the twist that it actively ''wants'' a member of Trixie's bloodline to use it because [[spoiler:Trixie's ancestor Magic Star created it in the first place using the Rainbow of Darkness as the materials.]] Another twist is the Amulet originally ''wasn't'' this trope, it was corrupted when it [[spoiler:was used to seal away the majority of the evil PureMagicBeing Lilith, the First Witch, in order to defeat her]].

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''
** The [=titular=] ''Halo Array'' is a network of [[LostTechnology ancient stellar megastructures]] scattered across the galaxy. When activated from Installation 00 - the Ark - in a single, synchronized event, the Halo Array annihilates all ''thinking'' life in the galaxy - including the local EldritchAbomination.
** The Forerunners who built the Array were forced to fire this weapon to end [[TheVirus the Flood]] threat; they were believed to have all perished and fall into extinction as a result, but not before they ordered their AIs to reseed life across the galaxy ''postbellum'' with the specimens they had gathered and sheltered for preservation.
** The entire ''Halo'' trilogy - the first three games - is spent trying to stop [[ScaryDogmaticAliens the Covenant]] from activating the Halos in their demented belief that doing so will make them into [[{{AscendtoaHigherPlaneofExistence}} Gods]]... while also preventing the resurgent Flood from eating every living thing in sight ''at the same time''.

** Later in the series there's the Scepter of Dul-Aman. It gives the wielder (Tucker) neat powers, but it also causes him to become proud and imperious.

** In the LooseCanon SequelSeries Dark World Drabbles, a member of Trixie's family a thousand years later named Masquerade got her hooves on it. While it's largely offscreen, the Dark World Heroes apparently had quite a bit of trouble getting it off of her [[spoiler:and it attempted to get Magica to put it on her (implying she too is of Trixie's blood). It's implied that Anasi (Alicorn!Trixie from a previous loop) covertly helped them do so and purify it so it could be used to forge an independent set of Elements of Chaos for use by the new Bearers]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Vangers}}'' allow you access to several powerful artifacts, which are hidden on cursed worlds. One of them is particularly standing out - the Mechanical Messiah, a CreepyDoll that looks like ClockPunk African idol. It allows you destructive powers, such as burning everyone around with fireballs, robbing their cargo holds or forcibly taking their weapons, or even [[spoiler:destroying the Spobs escave with Parapheen by causing a cave-in and turning the whole escave into soil]] under certain circumstances. No wonder the Messiah is considered to be cursed and no one wants to see you in their escaves carrying this menace. One of the functions, though, is called [[SchmuckBait Lucky]], and activating it grants you [[spoiler:NonStandardGameOver, where TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou]].
