* ''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).

* The PS2 remake of ''VideoGame/{{Shinobi}}'' has the main character wielding Akujiki, a cursed soul-eating sword that if not repeatedly fed, will begin to eat the wielder (in this case, main character Hotsuma)'s own soul.

* ''ComicBook/ContestOfChampions:'' Guillotine's sword is an ancient living weapon which feeds on blood, and plenty of it for preference. When first seen it's in an abandoned catacomb under Paris, surrounded by bones, whispering to a Frenchman fleeing some revolutionaries to pick it up. In the modern day, it's having to get by on the paltry amounts Guillotine gives it, while suggesting she solve the little problem of her fiancé by murdering him. And as it turns out, ownership of the sword extends beyond death, since the flashback to Guillotine's origin shows that when she accidentally woke the sword up by cutting her finger on it, she was met by the spirits of every one of her forebears.

* Shows up a lot in Creator/DavidGemmell's Drenai saga: Turns out that, among other weapons, [[spoiler: Druss's mighty ax, Snaga]], as well as [[spoiler: the Swords of Night and Day used by Skilgannon]] are so effective not just because of their respective wielders' skill, but also because they each come with a built-in bloodthirsty demon.

* In ''Literature/LightThickens'' by Creator/NgaioMarsh, this trope is played with. [[spoiler:The deranged and wildly imaginative fight master believes his claymore to be associated with decapitation and to possess a supernatural power, and allows this to take control of him.]]
