* Quite a few weapons used by or based off of the Hive in ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' are this given the Hive's casual relationship with things like death and the soul. The Sword of Crota was capable of draining the Light of Guardians it killed and resulting in their permanent end, Ir Anûk and Ir Halak once wielded a sniper rifle that didn't kill but [[FateWorseThanDeath altered the targets existence into one of never ending torment]], the Touch of Mailce [[spoiler: holds a piece of Oryx's soul and will eventually warp its wielder into him]], the Bad Juju gains power as it kills anything, and the HandCannon Thorn [[spoiler: turned one of the greatest Titans of the City into a servant of the Darkness that killed for pleasure and was forced to be put down by his best friend.]]

* One of Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/TheMagicGoesAway'' stories had Glirendree. The sword gave great power to its wielder, who would inevitably die within a year. The Warlock tells the current owner (who hadn't been aware of this) that Glirendree is a demon, correcting him when he asks "There's a demon in the blade?" that ''there is no blade''. It's a demon in the ''shape'' of a blade.

* The [[BladeOnAStick glaive]] known as the Whisperer of Souls in an example in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' mythology. It is the weapon of the {{Love Goddess}} Shelyn and is an inherently evil weapon that delights in drinking souls. Once the glaive eats 100 powerful souls, it will supposedly [[AGodAmI become a god]] and create an era of strife and death. Luckily, Shelyn has been freeing the souls trapped in the glaive with a combination of heroic deeds and {{Incorruptible Pure Pureness}}, keeping the evil weapon in check.

* In ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'' Lord Briarwood's blade, Craven Edge is this. [[spoiler: As a greats word it is of course wielded by Grog. It constantly whispers to him, craving fresh blood, and occasionally seems to influence Grog into being... Slightly more of a bloodthirtsy maniac than usual. Gets turned [[UpToEleven up to eleven]] when you read Craven Edge's stats. If it's ability to absorb the strength of the people it cuts is used too often, it can outright kill the wielder the next time they sleep.]]

** ''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.]]

The same game also reveals what exactly makes the sword evil; the sword is made of lyrium, which only turns red when it has been infected with [[TheCorruption the Blight]].]]

* Gallowsdodger in ''Videogame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell'' is a sentient pistol which appears to have been carved from a demon's skull, and is one the [[SevenDeadlySins Seven Deadly Weapons]], representing the sin of Pride. When you first find it, it gets upset at being called "a gun", claiming that it's like calling Jesus "a guy who wore sandals", and claims that it gets antsy when it hasn't killed for a while. When used during combat, it will compliment you on your killing prowess and make dismissive taunts at your enemies, and if used to inflict enough damage in a short period of time, it will enter "Overkill Mode", granting an increased rate of fire and explosive shots until it runs out.

* In ''Videogame/LeagueOfLegends'', the Darkin weapons are a series of weapons that corrupt the wielder, eventually taking them over. The champion Aatrox is actually the name of the sword wielded by a nameless gargantuan. Varus is hinted at wielding a Darkin Bow, but not being corrupted - possibly its a symbiotic relationship between the bow's bloodlust and the champions' desire for revenge. The whole schtick of the champion Kayn is he begins each game wielding the corrupting scythe Rhaast, and either succumbs to it or dominates it through the course of each match. Rhaast form is a tanky bruiser, while Shadow Assassin Form is basically ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.

* Several in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. For starters, every single daemon weapon ever. Notable one's include Kingslayer, the sword of Archaeon, the Lord of End Times (''Warhammer Fantasy''), Gorechild[[note]]originally wielded by [[FourStarBadass Primarch]] [[UnstoppableRage Angron]], [[DualWielding in tandem]] with its partner [[ThemeNaming Gorefather]][[/note]], the chain-axe belonging to Kharn the Betrayer (''40k''), and Drach'nyen, the sword of Abaddon the Despoiler (''40k''). The Primarch Fulgrim in ''40k'' got corrupted by a powerful daemon weapon. The weapon slowly caused him to turn to Chaos, and in the end, [[spoiler:when he refused to obey it, it possessed his body, turning him into a daemon]].

** Drach'nyen, the sword of Abaddon the Despoiler (''40k''). It's a Daemon Weapon bound in the form of a sword, but only because that's how Abbadon wills it to be. The entity bound within it is possibly the most powerful warp entity short of the Chaos Gods, having been born from Humanity's primal urge to murder, and was capable of fighting the Emperor to a standstill. Appropriately, it's name roughly translates to "The End of Empires".

* The Ars Armagus and Nox Nyctores of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. While the Ars Armagus, for the most part, "only" expose their weilders to [[AppliedPhlebotinum seithr]], [[PhlebotinumOverload which often leads to]] seithr addiction, physical and mental detoiration, death ([[FateWorseThanDeath if you're lucky]]) and/or BodyHorror bundled up with [[AndIMustScream complete and utter madness]] (if you're not), the Nox Nyctores are noticably more evil in nature. First of all, the catalyst to smelt a Nox Nyctores are tens of thousands of human souls. Secondly, the Nox Nyctores suppress "unnecessary" traits (e.g. fear, empathy, compassion and reason) and amplify others (e.g. aggression, hate, bloodlust and latent psychosises) in their wielders in order to make them more effective in combat. Thirdly there's also the fact that a Nox Nyctores shares the Ars Armagus' wonderful side effects.
