* Ragnell from ''VideoGame/FireEmblem 9'' and ''10''. It's one of the few weapons in the games that's indestructible, does insane damage, has a ranged attack, and is huge for the setting. It's only really comparable to it's twin, Alondite. That both swords are wielded by embodiments of awesome doesn't hurt.
** [[PersonOfMassDestruction It does if you happen to be enemies of said embodiments of awesome.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' in general is pretty big on swords. Though swords are part of the weapon triangle, they are most commonly given to the main character and as such there is guaranteed to be a cool sword for the main character lying around somewhere. It doesn't hurt that swords are the most balanced of the melee weapons.

* Kleever from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2''. It's a FlyingWeapon with no one wielding it, [[{{BFS}} absolutely huge]], most definitely an EvilWeapon and looks like something made in hell.

* ''Film/WarCraft2016'' has Lothar's and Llane's blades, lion-decorated swords wih runic inscriptions on them. They don't seem to be special in any way, they just look way cool.

* A lot of {{Transformers}} use swords despite possessing lasers. Those that stand out include Star Saber's Saber Blade from ''TransformersVictory'' and the unrelated blade known as the Star Saber (made of three [[CombiningMecha Mini-cons]]) from ''TransformersArmada''.

*** Ice, the Stark's Valyrian steel '''greatsword'''
*** Longclaw, a bastard sword for a bastard

*** Ice, the Stark's Valyrian steel '''greatsword'''
'''greatsword'''.
*** Longclaw, a bastard sword for a bastardbastard, originally an heirloom of House Mormont but remade with a wolfhead pommel and gifted to Jon Snow.



*** Aegon the Conqueror's Blackfyre. His sister/wife Visenya had Dark Sister. Both became legacy weapons, with Blackfyre wielded and inspiring the name of the bastard pretender Daemon Blackfyre, while Dark Sister would go on to be wielded by Prince Daemon Targaryen, Aemon the Dragonknight and Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers.

*** Thoros of Myr's swords, [[FlamingSword set on fire]] with [[GreekFire wildfire]] or BloodMagic(and later, BloodMagic). The former is for pure showmanship, and he keeps needing to buy new ones because [[RealityEnsues setting ones sword on fire absolutely ruins the thing]].

* ''Literature/TheBalancedSword'' has several swords created by an UltimateBlacksmith, each of which has its own name and unique power. In addition, there's Poplock's sword Steelthorn, which is quite small (a larger person might even consider it a dagger), but is enchanted to deal damage as if it were a much larger weapon.
