* The Zahir from JorgeLuisBorges' 1949 short story ''El Zahir'' is the most fascinating object in the world. It doesn't matter what it is - but there's always one Zahir in the world at any one time. ''Zahir'' is an Arabic word meaning "the obvious meaning," "the conspicuous" or "something that cannot be ignored."

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', the [[spoiler:lyrium idol]] that Hawke and Varric find in the Primeval Thaig. Being made of the supposed 'leftover creation' (lyruim), it is able to draw people to itself. It starts with Varric's brother, convincing him to lock Hawke and friends in the thaig, then ends up [[spoiler:in the hands of Meredith]], who has it forged into a sword. [[spoiler:From there she clings to it religiously and becomes drastically harsher more paranoid of mages.]] Without this trait, almost the entire endgame could have been averted.

* There's an inversion in ''Franchise/GreenLantern''. Larfleeze, the Orange Lantern of the light of avarice, is the greediest being in the cosmos. How greedy? Everything and even everyone he sees become Artifacts of Attraction for him. He hoards precious and useless things and he even "steals" the people he kills by turning them into "[[LivingMemory ghosts]]" under his control, making up the Orange Lantern Corps.

He's the sole member of the Corps because he's far too greedy to ever share any of his power.

* The Golden Helmet from Creator/CarlBarks' ''Donald Duck'' comic of the same name is a headgear version of the One Ring Of Power. Using an ancient edict, an AmoralAttorney has come up with some legal mumbo jumbo that declares anyone who owns the helmet becomes legal king of North America, and one by one, the heroes succumb to the temptation and decide they don't just want to keep it away from the villain, they want to rule North America themselves! They eventually manage to throw it into Mt. D-- sorry, the ocean, only for it to reappear courtesy of [[LuckyBastard Gladstone Gander]] in a sequel by [[Creator/DonRosa Keno Don Rosa]].
