* Subverted in ''VideoGame/ShiningForce''. The Sword Of Darkness is indeed a powerful sword, with slightly better attack power than the Sword Of Light. However, it has two major drawbacks: It's cursed and its spell effect is a UselessUsefulSpell. It's also not even the best sword in the game, though it is one of the two requirements to obtain the Chaos Breaker.

* The Black Knight's Ebony Blade from Creator/MarvelComics. Another example of ThunderboltIron. It can cut through anything and fire energy beams, but if it's used "in an unworthy manner," it fills the wielder with an uncontrollable bloodlust.

* From the gamebook series ''Literature/LoneWolf'', most of the [[EliteMook Drakkarim warriors]] wield black swords and weapons made from a peculiar mineral. Lone Wolf himself can obtain and wield the Dagger of [[PredecessorVillain Vashna]] and the Black Sword Helshezag: both weapons are powerful (though not as the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Sommerswerd]]) and can kill Darklords, but the latter drains Stamina with each use. In ''The Curse of Naar'', you have to face the Drakkarim War God Zantaz, who wields a pitch-black runed sword and is a though, mandatory opponent.
