** Harry's sword, forged for him by Uhtred, with the guidance of Tony Stark, and enchanted by Loki. It was designed along the lines of an Alfheim sabre, based on Harry's preference [[LightningBruiser for speed based attacks]], with a few twists. Thanks to parallel evolution, the end result is explicitly described as closely resembling the ''shashka'', the famed sabre of the Russian Cossacks and real life example of this trope. [[spoiler: Since this triggers more than a few Red Room based memories, this is not necessarily a good thing.]]

[[spoiler: Since this triggers more than a few Red Room based memories, this is not necessarily a good thing.]] After the ''Bloody Hell'' arc, it becomes even cooler, as Dracula [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaling Harry]] with it and then blasting him with magical lightning, causes it to take on [[PlayingWithFire attributes]] of Harry's Phoenix-infused blood, and possibly gives it a bit of sentience. At this point, Harry names it Curtana, after the legendary sword of Sir Tristan.
* ''Fanfic/AManOfIron'' continues Westeros' tradition of having lots of cool swords lying around. In addition to the canonical [[{{BFS}} Ice]]:
** Tony has forged two Valyrian steel swords, Lawkeeper (which he gave to Rhodey) and Shadowfang (which he gifts to Jon, hoping to create a new AncestralWeapon for the Iron Pointe Starks). Bonus points to the latter, which has a sunstone in the hilt, which makes it lighter to wield.
** House Bracken's AncestralWeapon, Hate Eternal, which is powerful enough to cut through both of a man's hands in one blow [[spoiler: even when used by a teenager like Theon]].
** [[spoiler: Gerion Lannister, [[CompositeCharacter now called]] Nikolos Fury, retrieved and now wields Brightroar.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has some pretty cool swords, including:
*** The Windcleaver, for being a big-ass katana that shoots RazorWind

*** Any of the [[BattleBoomerang boomerang-type weapons]], for obvious reasons
*** The Ancient Bladesaw, for literally being a HardLight [[ChainsawGood Chainsaw]]
*** The Demon Carver, for having one of the strangest shapes of any sword from any video game ever

* Captain Reilly's AncientWeapon katana in [[Literature/{{Okuyyuki}} "Okuyyuki"]]. Made even cooler by being inhabited by a genuine Japanese ''kami'' spirit, who teaches him Japanese and eventually becomes a sort of MagicalGirlfriend to him.

** Ván, the Sword of Hope, appears to be a completely unremarkable arming sword to the untrained eye, and completely unlike what one would expect from an incredibly powerful magic sword - something which is lampshaded. However, it is sentient (probably), layered with enchantments, made of uru and vibranium, and designed to NoSell [[spoiler: ''Phoenix fire.'']] That's pretty darn cool.
