* ''Literature/TheJungleBook'': In RudyardKipling's "The King's Ankus", the eponymous object (an elephant-goad made from ivory and precious stones) looks like an ArtifactOfDoom to Mowgli because after he discards it he discovers six men who have killed each other fighting over it. Being a WildChild he doesn't understand that men will kill for something they can't eat.

* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): The [[SoulCuttingBlade Shardblades]] represent the [[TheOathbreaker broken oaths]] of the old [[TheOrder Knights Radiant]], as well as centuries of blood and murder as people scrambled to win and steal them. When Kaladin touches one, he hears it ''screaming'', though only he and the wielder can hear it. [[spoiler:They're actually [[BondCreature spren]], killed by the broken oaths, given some semblance of life by bonding to a living being (enough to be [[SummonToHand summoned and dismissed at will]], but no more). Being touched by a Radiant who still holds his oath gives them life and memory of their pain for a moment]].

* The ''VideoGame/BlackMirror'' trilogy has the titular Black Mirror. [[spoiler: Hidden in a massive cave system under the castle of the same name, it transports the souls of anyone evil who dies near it to some kind of hellish dimension (if not ''the'' Hell), generates shadow versions of people that can torture said souls or kill the living, and literally radiates evil that only certain people can resist. It's heavily implied that the trilogy's BigBad Mordred was a heroic person until he was corrupted by it. No one knows why it exists or who made it, but one character claims there's proof that it's as old as the universe itself.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' special "The Smurfic Games", Gargamel's cousin Argus gives Papa Smurf a powerful and dangerous magical item called the Medallion of Poseidon that he wants to see buried. Gargamel, hearing about the medallion from his cousin before he died, rescues the only book that didn't disappear with his cousin when he died and from it puts together all the items necessary to unleash its destructive power. Although Papa Smurf has buried the medallion and rendered its power inert, Brainy mistakenly unearths it and has Painter paint gold over it to present it as the Smurfic Games medal. As Clumsy is awarded with the medal which turns out to be the medallion, Gargamel recites the incantation that unleashes its destructive power ("Ravage the land as never before, total destruction from mountain to shore.") and thus the entire forest and village is rocked by a serious earthquake. Papa Smurf uses his magic to bury the medallion into the earth, thus stopping its destructive power from consuming everything.

* The grail in Creator/TeresaEdgerton's ''[[{{Celydonn}} The Grail and the Ring]]'' became this because it was corrupted when its powers were first revealed. SubvertedTrope in that the object can be redeemed, and doing this is a necessary step to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.
