* The Black Knight's Ebony Blade from ''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.

* The first Muramasa sword in Wolverine comics. Like the Ebony Blade, anyone else than the one born to wield it would have uncontrollable bloodlust.

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', both [[GreatDetective Willard H. Wright]] and [[RealityWarper Bernkastel]] have black blades. Given in VisualNovel/{{Umineko|NoNakuKoroNi}}, colour is ''incredibly'' important, the colour of these weapons is far more than just cosmetic, giving them powers to attack ideas and metaphysical concepts directly. Oh, and fitting Bernkastel's [[GoodPowersBadPeople personality]], her black blade takes the form of a SinisterScythe that can reap miracles.

** 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.
