* 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.]]

* In ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', Mikoto's sword Miroku is an aspect of a very malevolent [[EldritchAbomination demonic entity]], and it [[ClingyMacGuffin rarely ever leaves her sight]] [[spoiler:because Mikoto's family had [[{{Tykebomb}} trained her to use it ever since she was little]], and it and [[OrphansPlotTrinket the pendant she wears]] possess mind-controlling powers]].
* In ''Franchise/OnePiece'' [[BadassNormal Zoro]] gets a cursed katana. It encourages the owner to seek conflict and kill, but Zoro was able to overpower it. Occasionally it delivers a serious blow when Zoro tries to hold back, like on Whiskey Peak. It is not sentient, nor does it ever "communicate" in any way- we only have Zoro's reactions and sense to go on.
** It's also the youngest, and thus weakest, of three swords of the same class by it's forger. The oldest is also said to be in the strongest category of swords, and is likely to be much more evil.

** The Nyras Sceptre is empowered by the [[ArtifactOfDoom Doomstone of Darke]], the most powerful Doomstone created by Agarash the Damned. An ambitious Drakkar warlord named Magnaarn rediscovered both and used the Sceptre in a bid to conquer the good kingdom of Lencia. The Sceptre granted him vast power and allowed him to cow the [[EvilSorcerer Nadziranim]] and their armies into serving him, but he paid a terrible price. By the time Lone Wolf catches up with Magnaarn, he is little more than the Sceptre's frail undead puppet.

* The titular weapon in ''Literature/TheBrokenSword''. Every time it is drawn it cannot return to its scabbard until someone is killed with it, and to ensure that it fills its wielders with violent rage and lust for slaughter. And it is bound to eventually cause death of any creature who dares to use it, likely not before inflicting enough misfortune on them that death would seem a release.

* All-Black the Necrosword wielded by Gorr the God-butcher, a foe of Comicbook/TheMightyThor, is a blade of darkness that grants its owner vast power fueled by the lifeblood of slain gods. The sword also has a nasty habit of corrupting anyone who wields it into an AxCrazy butcher, even someone as heroic as Thor. It's one of the most powerful and evil weapons in the Marvel Universe.
