* 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.

* 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 ''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.

* Mo's "Zahn Special" white violin in ''Literature/TheLaundryFiles'' by Charles Stross. Despite its [[PoweredByAForsakenChild horrific]] [[HumanResources manufacture]] and [[BrownNote gruesome effects]], the main characters believe that it can still be used for a good cause. [[spoiler:It can, but only until the evil sentience inside it gets strong enough to start trying to take action on its own.]]

* In a ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' anime filler arc only appearance there are the Bakkōtō swords that - unlike Zanpakutō who are borne of their users souls - are more akin to parasites that will become increasingly powerful with their wielder, but also devour their user eventually. They're outlawed for that very reason.

* Miramoto Musashi's [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter bokken]] from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''.
* Sacrifar, the ninth form of the ''Manga/RaveMaster'''s [[MorphWeapon Ten Commandments]] sword, is actually a subversion. When Haru used it, it increased his bloodlust and tried to forcefully merge with his body, causing Musica to wonder why his grandfather had created the sword with such a form. The answer: He ''hadn't.'' What the elder Musica ''had'' done was create a sword for the specific use of Haru's predecessor which, in its more powerful forms, would not work properly, if at all, when Haru himself tried to use them.

* The ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' known as "DwarfFortress/{{Deathgate}}" forged the Red Monster Sword. While not intrinsically evil, it ''was'' made from the arm of a fire demon and burned with everlasting {{hellfire}}, so hot that even going near it caused third-degree burns. No one could wield it. At great cost it was sealed in stone.
