* In Creator/RobertEHoward's Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian novel ''Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon'', the Heart of Ahriman. Even one of the evil conspirators tries to get it from the EvilSorcerer. Though interestingly, the Heart is actually noted to be a force of ''good'', and the EvilSorceror in question kept it close because he knew that it was the one power that could defeat his own dark arts and that he could never wield it himself. The conspirator in question only ''thought'' it was a source of dark power and intended to remove it under the belief it would weaken the sorceror, and Conan goes on a quest to get it back so he and his allies can defeat the sorceror.

* The Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/il/shimmer/shimmer-s.html Singles Championship belt]] seems to have a habit of causing {{Face Heel Turn}}s, either in pursuit of it (Madison Eagles), or once a wrestler becomes champion (Wrestling/SaraDelRey, Wrestling/CheerleaderMelissa). The only {{Face}} to avoid turning heel thus far has been Wrestling/{{MsChif}}, who has a [[OurBansheesAreLouder banshee]] [[TheGimmick gimmick]]. Eagles in particular is who sparked this line of thinking, as she seemed to have been driven crazy by the belt itself, defining herself by it before her first run had been ended by Melissa, who promptly turned heel herself.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series is positively rife with them. Each game seems to feature at least one as part of its main quest, with others showing up in the side quests or deep backstory.

* ''Blog/AlwaysHavingJuice'': In the Juiceverse, the Chaos Emeralds turn out to be these, ''big time.''. They appear to grant incredible power to anyone who wields it, but it drives them ''completely '''insane''''' as a result and it's not pretty. While the primary example we see is Sonic himself (in a shoutout to Fleetway's Super Sonic), Knuckles has stated that Chaos and Gerald Robotnik also went insane (but unlike Sonic, did not snap out of it at first). If [[GodOfGood a benevolent deity]], [[FatherlyScientist a kindly scientist]], and [[TheHero even the main hero]] are driven to complete and utter bedlam, then the Chaos Emeralds definitely qualify as these, and thus the Master Emerald is moee important to keep them in check.

If [[GodOfGood a benevolent deity]], [[FatherlyScientist a kindly scientist]], and [[TheHero even the main hero]] are driven to complete and utter bedlam, bedlam because of their power, then the AHJ's Chaos Emeralds definitely qualify as these, and thus these. This makes the Master Emerald is moee important to keep Emerald's role in keeping them in check.at bay all the more important.

** The Concept Killing Spear, AKA the [[WeaponOfMassDestruction Most Feared Weapon in Creation]], is a unique case: it's not so much inherently evil or corrupting as so dang dangerous that using it for good is nigh impossible. This is because it [[RetGone erases anyone it kills from existence]] unless used very specifically, as was done with [[spoiler:Rancor to Dark World!Discord]], and everyone who's currently alive because of them, which can cause massive devastation. It was created by a ChildProdigy from Tirek's Chariot of Darkness to kill Cupid and Venus. She succeeded in killing Cupid with it, and the end result was sending countless lives to Oblivion along with him and drastically changing history for the worst, and until [[spoiler:Nightmare Eclipse]] eventually surpassed it, it was the greatest amount of devastation done to reality by a mortal ''ever''. The Spear is so dangerous that Strife (the literal AnthropomorphicPersonification of Conflict itself) considers it unfit to remain in the mortal realm and kept it sealed in her realm, one of the most dangerous places in existence, just to make sure it was never used unless absolutely needed. It's telling that the only reason the Concepts don't just destroy it is because they ''can't'', as [[spoiler:only Destruction could do so and Discord ate him]].

** Hydia spent a good chunk of her time before dying creating a ''lot'' of these to scatter across Ponyland as a last act of spite on Ponykind. This included the Inspiration Manifestation.
