** And then in ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu]]'', you have the Demon Sword Mistoltin. [[SubvertedTrope Not an evil weapon in truth]], as it's one of the Holy Weapons of the Twelve Crusaders which saved Jugdral from Dragon EvilOverlord Loptous : but it's a sword that craves for blood, as [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by his 2nd Generation owner, [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Ares[=/=]Aless]] ; the Special Skill it grants (Critical) and the main stats boost it gives to its user (Skill, needed to activate Critical often) are another giveaway of this.

** More examples include several of the Artifact Weapons introduced in Legion, such as Apocalypse, a murderous greatsword that Unholy-spec Death Knights get, the cursed Dreadblades that Outlaw Rogues end up with, and literally all of the Warlock's possible Artifact Weapons. Shadow Priests even get a talking Old-God-related dagger with a [[ArousedByTheirVoice disconcertingly attractive]] [[HearingVoices voice]]. Oddly enough, the Frost Death Knight swords, Icebringer and Frostreaper, despite being made from the remains of Warcraft's king of this trope, Frostmourne, manage [[SubvertedTrope not]] to be.

* The second game in ''VideoGame/TheDarkness'' series introduces the sword Kusanagi, which used to be benevolent, until an evil shogun used it to take thousands of innocent lives, corrupting it. In order to purify it, it has to be fed the hearts of (via impalement) ten thousand evil souls, or else it reduces the lifespan of the current wielder by a year each day. Luckily for the sword, its current wielder is the revenge crazy BloodKnight Inugami, who's hunting down murderous cultists.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'': Near the end of the first act, an ArtifactofDoom gets onto the market. Later, [[spoiler: it is used to smith an Evil Sword, and makes Meredith, who was already a KnightTemplar, turn outright evil and crazy (and [[RedEyesTakeWarning make her eyes glow red]]). She eventually tries to use it to become a OneWingedAngel, but that backfires, [[TakenforGranite turning her and the sword to stone]]. Before that, it allowed her to use magic, including [[SuddenlyHarmfulHarmlessObject animating statues]] to [[MalevolentArchitecture fight for her.]]]]
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' - should you side with the mages, [[spoiler: Samson]], General of the Red Templars, wields what is implied to be [[spoiler: the red lyrium sword somehow recreated. You can actually add it your inventory after beating him.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures'', the Trident wielded by Ganon is a demonic weapon that marks its holder as the King of Darkness. It was stealing the Trident from the Gerudo's sacred pyramid that transformed [[{{Reincarnation}} this incarnation]] of Ganondorf into the monstrous Ganon.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' has [[spoiler:the sword of the Demon King Demise. It can take on the form of a white-haired man called Ghirahim, who has an AxCrazy BloodKnight personality.]]

* ''Fanfic/ThirtyHs'' brings us Fuckslayer, a guitar wrought from the silver heart of heaven's false promise, laced with vessels that pulsed with angel's menstrual blood, hewn from the horns of Satan's generals. Yes, that is a direct quote. Even more amazingly, this thing can summon fire in space, blow planets into smithereens, and requires its own pocket dimension where all scream for nought to store the thing.

* ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' has the Sword of Darkness, which Rita used to sustain her control over the Green Ranger. The name says it all. And it looked so awesome, too. Of course, the weapon on Power Rangers you most want to stay away from is the [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]] White Ranger ''power gem,'' which drove its user mad. To be fair, that was after Mesagog had it soaking in evil energy for a long while. Once that was gone, the White Ranger was an okay guy.

* The swords in Creator/FredSaberhagen's ''Literature/TheBookOfSwords'' series don't talk, but each of them has a specific magic power that sounds like it would be awesome but in fact are mostly BlessedWithSuck. (Farslayer, for example; you can throw it and tell it to kill anyone, and it will, no matter how far away or well guarded they are. Of course, that leaves it right next to the allies of the person you just killed, who can then pick it up themselves...) It's somewhat ambiguous whether the swords themselves are evil or just cursed (and a couple of them aren't too bad, except that they make you a target for everyone in the world who would prefer to have it themselves).
