* ''ComicBook/NewAvengers2015:'' Hulking is abducted by some Kree-Skrull hybrids, who wish to determine if he is their prophesised king. As a test, they show him a pillar of light and tell him to enter. Hulking's in and out of the beam with a sword before they can finish telling him about what would happen if he's not worthy. And to top everything off, Teddy's not even very impressed.

* The pair are different weapons in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Excalibur functions is a [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Sword]], whereas Caliburn simply appears to be a really powerful sword, to the point [[spoiler:where a projection of it, if wielded by Saber, can kill Beserker seven times in a single strike. That is only if it is wielded by Saber though. And that's just a ''replica'']].
** ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'' includes Clarent as a separate sword which Mordred stole from Camelot's armory. It is capable of an attack similar to Excalibur but is weaker due to its theft.

* In ''The Kingmaking'' by Helen Hollick, Arthur's sword, which he calls Caliburn, is a trophy taken from a defeated Saxon warrior, but rumoured to be handed down by the [[NorseMythology Norse goddess]] Freya who appeared at a lake. Some Latin words for "stone", ''saxum'' or ''saxo'', are similar to the word for Saxons, ''Saxones'', and the author suggests this is how the legend may have started.

** Just to round out the confusion ''VideoGame/FateExtra'' has Excalibur Galantine, a sword separate from, but related to, Arthur's Excalibur, wielded by Gawain.

** Just to round out the confusion ''VideoGame/FateExtra'' has Excalibur Galantine, a sword separate from, but related to, Arthur's Excalibur, wielded by Gawain. This reflects the fact that in some early versions of the legend, it was Gawain rather than Arthur who wielded Excalibur (or "Escalibor" as it was then called).

* Averted in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', where the sword in the stone is specifically identified as Caledfwych, not Excalibur. Dave retrieves it by breaking it and using his time powers to wield it intact, and it serves not only as his main weapon but also as a recurring symbol for his CharacterDevelopment.

* Lara makes this identification repeatedly in ''VideoGame/TombRaiderLegend'', despite Alister's repeated and passionate reminders that they were "two different bloody swords!" It turns out in the end Lara was right and in his excitement over seeing what the completed sword can do even Alister forgets his previous comments.

Still a subversion in that the finished "Excalibur" was pieced together from several similar swords.

* ''Literature/TheOnceAndFutureKing'' actually takes a fairly ambiguous approach towards the sword(s). The Sword in the Stone is not given any other name when Arthur pulls it out, but after a bit of a TimeSkip, Arthur is referring to his sword as Excalibur. The book makes no mention of the Sword in the Stone breaking or Excalibur being from the Lady of the Lake, indicating that they are one and the same, but not confirming it.

For what it's worth, the book's author would later use the name Excalibur to describe the Sword in the Stone attraction at Disneyland, further suggesting that he views them as the same sword.
