* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'': In the spin-off ''The Bridge: Humanity's Stand'', scientist Joanna Johnson reveals an old, rusted sword that she theorizes may have been Excalibur itself, as well as other legendary swords such as Durendal, Caledfwlch, and Caladbolg. When the weapon is properly infused with mana, it turns into a pristine, glowing, AbsurdlySharpBlade, but reverts to its unimpressive, rusted form once it's no longer being fed mana.

* In ''VideoGame/SoulOfTheSamurai'' (known as ''VideoGame/RoninBlade'' in Europe), [[PlayerCharacter Kotaro]] can find a rusty sword. It is the ''weakest'' katana in the game, even worse than your starting sword, but if you ''do'' manage to obtain it and follow an advice given by an NPC a few levels earlier, you can bring the rusty sword to the resident UltimateBlacksmith who, by the time you can start the game's final mission, will have turned it into the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Supreme Katana Of Greater Asskikckery]], which will have a blade as long as the [[{{BFS}} nodachi]], swing as fast as the [[DeathOfAThousandCuts wakizashi]] and hit as hard as the InfinityMinusOneSword you'll get by sticking to the story without going out of your way to find fancier blades.

* Gundam Barbatos from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamTheIronBloodedOrphans'' is a centuries old mobile suit reduced to being a jury-rigged reactor. After being hastily repaired so it can be piloted in a desperate situation, it quickly proves why the Gundams were able to end the Calamity War.

* Something of an interesting version in ''VideoGame/DragonsDogma''. Many basic weapons come in "rust" varieties (Rust Daggers, for example). These seem like {{Joke Item}}s at first, but once the player begins to upgrade them, they become much more powerful. While still having a generally lower damage output, they become capable of inflicting numerous useful status ailments on your enemies. The best part? They're still called "Rust Daggers" (etc.) regardless of how much you improve them. [[FridgeLogic Guess the weaponsmith figured out how to]] ''[[FridgeLogic weaponize rust]]''.

** Yamamoto's bankai played this as straight as possible. On the outside, it looked like a burnt out, rusty sword. It was also the strongest bankai in existence, with ThePowerOfTheSun and capable of destroying the world if activated for too long.

** Yamamoto's bankai played this as straight as possible. On the outside, it looked like a burnt out, rusty sword. It was also the strongest bankai in existence, with ThePowerOfTheSun and capable of destroying the world if activated for too long. And its power is concentrated on the edge of the blade, to the extent that a single cut would be enough to obliterate the victim's ''soul''.



* Inverted ''hilariously'' with [[LaughingMad Excalibur]] of ''Manga/SoulEater''; initially it seems to be a gloriously CoolSword, but once it's pulled from the stone, it's revealed to be an EquippableAlly... who wears a tiny [[NiceHat top hat]] and stands at half the height of any other character. Not to mention he's ''[[PhraseCatcher so annoying.]]'' [[spoiler:It's implied that some of the annoying behavior is actually an act to keep people from abusing Excalibur's incredible power.]]

** The Knights of the Cross have three swords that can burn faeries, kill demons, and help dispatch all manner of supernatural nasties. These three swords are fairly plain, save for the Nail from the Cross embedded in the hilt. [[spoiler: Turns out that all of these swords are actually pretty famous, because they're {{Excalibur}}, {{Kusanagi}}, and Durendal]]. So this a very good example of the trope.
