* The ''StarOcean'' games do this a lot. It's possible you're just recreating the item for whatever planet you're on; and the FlavorText is aimed at us, the audience; but still.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The various [[LegendaryWeapon Daedric artifacts]] are a [[JustifiedTrope justified example]], as the [[OurGodsAreDifferent associated deity]] chooses how the artifact manifests in the physical realm. In some cases, this means the item comes into existence right before your eyes, and also justifies the changing appearance and properties of the items throughout the series. For example, in ''Skyrim'', The Savior's Hide armor is made from the skin of a werewolf ''you just slew''. Further, it looks nothing like it did in previous appearances in ''Battlespire'', ''Morrowind'', and ''Oblivion'', and has a different enchantment in each game.

* Played straight and subverted in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''. Many weapons you upgrade get the normal treatment, but a few of the truly unique weapons require using [[PoweredByAForsakenChild soul of their owner]] to forge them, implying that you are literally remaking that legend again.

** In terms of actual item crafting, in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the "quality" of a crafted items has several levels depending on your Smithing skill, with the highest being "Legendary". With a high enough Smithing skill, you can forge a brand new weapon or piece of armor, take it to a grindstone or workbench, and make it Legendary. Subverted in that, while the item is literally just seconds old, the "Legendary" label refers to the quality of the weapon, rather than the weapon itself being "legendary".

* ''TheNeverEndingStory'' explores this idea in-depth, as Bastian can create whole worlds from scratch, and they come with their own history and mythology, even if Bastian did not think this up himself.

* A slight example in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. Items have several levels depending on the quality, the highest level being "Legendary". So with a high enough smithing skill, you can forge a weapon or piece of armour, then immediately take it to a grindstone or workbench and make it legendary, despite being literally seconds old.

** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', killing a nameless high dragon will let you loot her Fire Gland, which, in turn, can be crafted by a local enchanter into an amulet named Urzara's Tooth. This unlocks a Codex entry, which claims that Urzara's Tooth is a 200-year-old relic of a dragon-worshiping cult.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' use to spoof this by giving each class a starting weapon that can be upgraded to an Epic Weapon, then Legendary Epic Weapon, then Ultimate Legendary Epic Weapon, but that was changed recently (now the Epic Weapon is actually a unique weapon found in the tomb of an ancient warrior, rather than being constructed by the player)
