* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'' has Big Boy, a unique Fat Man. It has the special ability Two Shot: it's slightly less accurate than a normal Fat Man, but every time it fires it launches two mini nukes while only using a single shot. It's also considered both an explosive and a heavy weapon for the purposes of damage bonuses. With even a few ranks of either perk, its damage gets pumped to the point where there will be very few enemies who can withstand a single strike from it.

** The Last Minute, a fully outfitted Gauss Rifle that deals bonus limb damage, purchasable from Ronnie Shaw after the completion of "Old Guns".
** Elder Maxson's Final Judgement Gatling Laser, which has a 50% faster rate of fire, and deals twice as much damage. However, [[BraggingRightsReward it only becomes available near the very end of the main quest line]], and only if siding with the Institute or the Railroad.

* ''[[VideoGame/GranTurismo Gran Turismo 5]]'' features the [[http://www.topspeed.com/cars/2012-red-bull-x2010-ar102912.html Red Bull X2010]], created as a joint project between Polyphony Digital and Red Bull Racing. The idea behind the car was essentially "let's go build a race car that isn't bound by any stupid league restrictions!" The car features over 1400 horsepower and weighs only 550 kilograms, and can achieve lateral acceleration levels of 8.75 G's (in comparison, real-life F1 cars get anywhere from 2-4 depending on speed) and has a top speed of over 500 km/h. It is so fast that there is zero competition for it from any AI racers in-game and it is disallowed in all 'serious' online racing rooms. Acquiring the X2010 requires you to score at least Bronze on three time trials that feature the X2010 - the time is actually easy for anyone with simulation racing experience and a wheel, [[NintendoHard but scoring Gold is the hardest challenge in the entire game]]. Only a handful of people have gotten Gold for all three trials with a standard PS3 controller.

** The Fell Arms work the same way. After you defeat the TrueFinalBoss, the Fell Arms' strength increases by the number of kills that the character has acquired. Combine this with the [[spoiler:cape you receive from defeating Dhaos in the 200 man melee that transforms Destruction Field into a massive attack known as Dhaos Blast]] and Yuri becomes an absolute monster in battle. The difference here is you can keep the activated weapons on a NewGamePlus and they ''remain activated''. Fortunately the ability to save the kill-count was removed, or they'd be the mother of all {{Game Breaker}}s. As it is, it still takes a good while to grind enough kills to make them the best weapons again in a new game. The PS3 version added the ability to save the kill count to the grade shop, and isn't particularly expensive either. To compensate (though barely), if you power up all the Fell Arms, the final boss gets a new third form. Also, even with the extreme attack power they can rack up, it'll barely be enough to fight the Spiral Draco.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3''[='s Patriot is simple -- just clear the game=]. ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'''s on the other hand ''requires'' a no Alert, no Continues, [[TechnicalPacifist No Kills]] (of humans; tranquilizing an enemy who falls to his or her death counts, but [=GEKKOs=] and Scarabs don't), no recovery item (normal and [[spoiler:iPod]]-assisted natural regeneration is fine), no special item (Stealth Camo or Bandanna), {{Speedrun}} on [[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels The Boss Extreme]]... where ''everything'' that's not a "Now Loading" screen (but the "Press Start" prompt ''does'' count!), between-Acts install time (including the "Press Start" prompt), and a post-Act results screen counts towards the 5 hour time limit. Yes, ''even the Start menu and the PS3 home screen''.

* ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose'' has multiple ones. The gun is the most powerful, on top of being a ranged weapon, but you need four perfumes in exchange for the key to it. The secret costumes come each with their own melee weapon, but they require a NewGamePlus; some of them also require an easy fetch quest, but they're functionally the same. The Knight Sword is a combination of the two: you need to kill five special Imps, which then drop a knife each, which then are traded to get the Bronze\Rusty Sword, [[RunningGag which then]] must be traded back in a NewGamePlus. And you need to do all that again if you want it in the ''next'' playthrough; the only consolation is it's only sligthly less powerful than the Gun, but has infinite uses.

** The original InfinityPlusOneSword was the Yoshitsuna. A sword that was stronger than the mightiest axe (axes were the most powerful weapons but decereased your accuracy and could hit only one enemy at time), more range than guns, and increased almost all your others stats by a lot to boot.

* The Aquarion Logos Genesis from ''AquarionLogos'' uses a sword capable of going on forever, providing more overkill to its already gigantic arsenal of powers.

* In VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown, the Blaster Launcher. Absolutely staggering blast radius, can shoot around corners, and massive damage. Getting ''one'' requires taking down a Battleship. The joke is by the time you get the Blaster Launcher, you've proven you no longer need it.

** You get most with out doing anything! Usually these either are obtained later on or they're MagikarpPower, like the ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' after it unlocks all its abilities in Z, (It was meh to average in Alpha Gaiden), Zeyormer in J and MX, where you get it VERY early on and it's near unstoppable (though useing it on J unnecessarily will cause you not to get Great Zeyormer, but the regular version is GameBreaker incarnate as it is), Ideon in Alpha 3, the Nirvash Spec 2, Spec3, and Aquarion in Z, usually Mazinkaiser and Shin Getter are the strongest things you'll get, and you don't have to do anything for them. (Except in @ Gaiden for Getter but it's VERY easy. Which makes its [[GlassCannon Dissapointing]] [{AwesomeButImpractical Stats]] even more annoying considering you get something like [[GameBreaker Mazinkaiser]] alongside it) You pretty much start the game with tons of infinity plus one swords in hand. Of course they need upgrades as you go along.

** Furthermore, Goldbrand can be upgraded to Eltonbrand - en even more awesome sword, but only if you're a vampire and (at some point) if you have a certain exact amount of gold in your inventory.

** The Halloween update adds Mom's Knife, which is DifficultButAwesome that leans heavily towards the Awesome side. Unlocked by beating the new TrueFinalBoss as Isaac, you would throw a highadamage knife that hit frequently.
