** Though Stormbringer is most famous, in Moorcock's mythology of the Eternal Champion, it is but an incarnation of a multiversal entity that is used and uses the Eternal Champion in many incarnations, an entity that is outright called the Black Sword. The Black Sword also manifests in its purest form when the Champion incarnates as Urlik Skarsol.

* Played with in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. In the ''Heaven's Feel'' route, [[spoiler:Saber turns evil due to TheCorruption that's been attacking the Servants, and to match her new "Saber Alter" state her golden sword Excalibur turns black. While the sword itself is not inherently stronger than the original Excalibur, it ''is'' far deadlier, if only because Saber Alter is now receiving infinite mana from the corruption, and can thus use her sword's devastating SwordBeam function almost infinitely (beforehand, the SwordBeam used by the good Saber had to be used with restraint due to its high mana consumption).]]

** Inverted, however, with Dawn, the ancestral sword of house Dayne forged from ThunderboltIron. It's described as ''milky white'' in color, and yet is at least as good as a Valyrian steel sword.

* VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2013 has the fully-upgraded Nobitsura Kage, which looks like the blade was forged from obsidian with lava-cracks running through it. It's the most powerful weapon you get and fires off one-hit kill slashes that cut through the crowds of enemies running at you, and has a high rate of fire.

* All Black the Necrosword, wielded by ''Comicbook/TheMightyThor'' villain Gor the God-butcher. Finding the sword is what allowed a poor starving mortal to butcher gods. The sword grants power over darkness and turns its wielder into a PhysicalGod.

* Guts of ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' fame wouldn't be the Black Swordsman without that sheet of black blade he calls the Dragonslayer.
* ''Manga/SamuraiDeeperKyo'' has the Shibien, one of the four muramasa swords crafted by [[NamesTheSame Muramasa]]. It apparently absorbed too much blood and turned black as a result.

* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Elucidator, one of Kirito's two swords, is pitch black. In ALO, his sword is also black. In GGO, his sword is '''still''' black. And go on, guess what color his sword in Underworld is going to be.

* In ''VideoGame/NuclearThrone'', by leaving Chicken's starting weapon (the Chicken Sword) in area 1-1 and then looping the game, the aptly named [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Black Sword]] will spawn near you. This weapon swings faster than most other melee weapons in the game, and while it doesn't have too much base damage (12 per hit), it has the ability to deal ''80 damage per hit''... [[DesperationAttack if Chicken is headless.]]
