** Other similar weapons appear to have the same shtick. [[spoiler:Otherbane, the Gardener's spear, burns Mace Tyrell's hand when he tries to take it for himself when it is meant to be for his son Willas, and when Joffrey tries to grab the Durrandon's sword, Stormbreaker, he gets electrocuted and BlownAcrossTheRoom.]]



Animation/{{Firing Range}} gives us a literal Emphatic Tank that senses and analyzes the enemy's (actually anyone's) hatred and fear, using them respectively to dodge their attacks and kill them.

** And then there's the Masou Kishin machines, giant mecha hailing from a techno-slash-fantasy-medieval land, which as quoted by legends function as chariots by a patron elemental god.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', the mecha sometimes act like Empathic Weapons, especially when people with PsychicPowers are using them. See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oN0IlOcBykQ this clip]]. The Mechanoids also are also more requested to do attacks then 'piloted'.
** Moreover, every pilot has a "Will" statistic representing fighting spirit that modifies his or her robot's stats and determines what attacks it can use. Depressed pilots deal less damage, take more, and can only use basic weapons.

than "piloted"to do so. Justified in that they have a mind and even a voice of their own, and that their power output is highly dependent of the pilot's willpower.

Added DiffLines:

** The Star Dragon Sword has a significantly abrasive personality, and often disagrees with its' wielder. You have to ''fight'' it in the second game before you can use it.

** In episode XLII, "The Aku Infection", it was practically Jack holding the sword, yet it couldn't harm the monks.

* UniverseAtWar has Viktor, [[ActionGirl Mirabel's]] battlesuit, which has lines of his own (if not understandable). The two serve, together, as one of Novus' hero units. Viktor's just as sentient as the rest of the machine race. It's just that while the others use TranslationConvention and eventually explicitly communicate in English, Viktor only ever speaks to Mirabel, and therefore doesn't bother.

* ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'': Awakened blades, such as Josef's Heart of War, are sentient to some extent. In Heart of War's case, it's humanlike and would be a TalkingWeapon if Josef wasn't completely spirit-deaf. As it is, it communicates mainly by visions and emotions.

** Daemon weapons are typically sentient, and are sometimes known to try and impede their suers for fun.
*** The Blade of Antwyr wielded by Castellan Garran Crowe is a Daemon weapon that spends its times trying to corrupt and kill it's user. It's corrupting evil is so great that it once corrupted an entire sector of the Imperium and is speculated to be either an incredibly powerful greater daemon or a forgotten Chaos god. Crowe must always have one of his hands holding the blade, otherwise it may possibly escape again and never uses the power of the weapon itself, merely using it as an ordinary two handed sword. It is known to be able to recognise other daemons. [[spoiler:It once offered advice to Crowe on how to defeat Skulltaker, one of it's ancient enemies.]]
*** Drach'nyen is a Daemon weapon wielded by Abaddon the Despoiler, Warmaster of Chaos. It changes forms to whatever it's current master wishes (Currently a greatsword). The Daemon that is formed from the blade was born from the first murder committed by humans.

-->'''Aku''': How!?
-->'''Jack''': Even I had forgotten that the sword was forged with purity and strain. It can only be used for good. In the hands of evil it can never harm an innocent and so Aku... [[PreAssKickingOneLiner it cannot harm]] ''[[PreAssKickingOneLiner me]]'' [[PreAssKickingOneLiner but it can harm]] ''[[PreAssKickingOneLiner you.]]''

** In the fifth season, Jack is shown to have dropped his sword down a hole at some point during the last 50 years. In episode XCVIII, [[spoiler: it's shown that he was tricked into murdering a trio of goat kids that Aku had turned into monsters. The goats were technically innocent, and upon using it to kill them the sword "abandoned" Jack, requiring him to go on a spiritual quest to retrieve it.]]
