* In ''Literature/TheLostYearsOfMerlin,'' the title character finds a magic sword and is told that he'll one day help a great king pull it from a stone. Oddly, "Excalibur" is never stated because Merlin [[IKnowYourTrueName doesn't want people to know its true name]].



* In ''Series/{{Charmed}},'' the Lady of the Lake is killed by a demon, and the Charmed Ones come into possession of Excalibur, once more in the stone. Piper manages to pull it out, but it begins to corrupt her, as apparently anyone not [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield "chosen" to wield it]] will eventually [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity go mad with power]]. It turns out that Excalibur is actually destined for ''[[GooGooGodlike Wyatt]],'' and Piper managed to pull it out because, as his mother, she's now the new Lady of the Lake.



* In ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'', one of Dave's sidequests in Sburb was to find and retrieve Caledfwlch, aka the Legendary Piece of Shit. It was embedded in a stone, [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter and rather than attempting to pull it]], he felt he instead had to break it out. [[FutureBadass Davesprite]] had already done the same before travelling back in time, and had already alchemized it into the superior Caledscratch, making the Caledfwlch more or less useless... [[InfinityPlusOneSword for a while]].

* ''Film/TheLastLegion'' presents Excalibur as a sword first wielded by Creator/JuliusCaesar which is taken from Rome to Britain by its last emperor, Romulus Augustus. At the end of the film, Romulus (strongly implied to be Uther Pendragon) drives the sword into a stone. The last shot of the film shows the sword in the PresentDay, still in the stone and with the original Latin inscription on it covered by moss, save for the letters which spell out 'Excalibur'.

* In ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', the Gold Saints Capricorn Shura has Excalibur in his arms... and legs!!!. In the anime, it was said that in mythical times, Athena granted the legendary sword Excalibur only to a Saint who proved his undying loyalty towards the goddess. This technique is a very sharp blast, composed of extreme cosmo concentration released by his arms and legs movements. Since it is quickly released, it can be used multiple times.
** After, Shura pass his power to Shiryu's arm before dying. However, in order to use it, the Bronze Saint would have to burn his cosmos to a Gold Saint's level and raise it to the limit.

* In ''The Skystone'', the first book in Jack Whyte's ''Camulod Chronicles'', ironsmith Publius Varrus at one point smelts some ore from a meteor that landed in a lake near his home, and forges it into a statue of a woman which he calls "The Lady of the Lake". He later melts down the statue and reforges the metal into the sword Excalibur.

* In the webcomic ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'', Uther Pendragon, Arthur's father, allows people to believe his sword is the legendary Excalibur as a PR exercise. This is the sword that ends up in the stone, while the ''real'' Excalibur is in the care of the Lady of the Lake.

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'', being set in a world where AllMythsAreTrue, quite naturally features Excalibur. [[spoiler: It's actually the MacGuffin of the first major story arc. Having been stolen from its Arthurian resting place by Vikings, it was then taken to New England in order to help the Wabanaki tribe fight off an invasion by Mayans hell-bent on unleashing the [[EldritchAbomination entity]] [[SealedEvilInACan slumbering under Solomon Island]]. Unfortunately, the sword was lost on the return journey and remained so until the 21st century, when it was accidentally discovered by a fishing vessel and brought back to Solomon Island; unfortunately, it brought the zombified Vikings with it - which is where the player gets involved. Eventually, [[StarterVillain Freddy Beaumont]] acquires the sword and tries to seize the Island's power with it before getting his ass handed to him by the player; unfortunately, Beaumont's DarkMistress makes off with Excalibur immediately afterward and hasn't been seen since.]]
