* ''VideoGame/{{Nethack}}'': Grayswandir is likely the most popular artifact (i.e. unique) weapon; there are others of similar strength, but most of them have inconvenient downsides, such as occasionally destroying your own items. It's also the only artifact that does [[SilverBullet silver damage]], and most of the tougher late-game enemies are vulnerable to it. Actually getting this sword, like most other things in this game, is a LuckBasedMission, as there are no scripted instances of it in the standard game.

*** The ''boomerang'' is the Infinity Plus One weapon -- it can kill almost anything, ''including the final boss'', in one hit, and if you still have the magic rooster, one can throw the boomerang and then fly around invulnerable. Although the Magic Rod, a mandatory weapon, is pretty much as good, if not better against certain enemies.

Compared to most examples, it's very easy to obtain--you have to complete a lengthy ChainOfDeals first, but you have to do that to complete the game anyway, and afterward you just have to visit a nondescript cave at the beach where the game started and trade away a less-valuable item.

* All kinds of crazy powerful weapons exist in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', but the one that fits this trope the best is Dave's sword Caledfwlch[[note]]This is another name for Exalibur, and is pronounced "Cal-ed-Fool-ch"[[/note]]. Obtaining this sword required going through a complicated sidequest. Dave first finds the sword stuck in a stone which he is unable to remove it from, so he gets just the bottom half of the sword by breaking it. The broken half is then used to make a new sword called Royal Deringer, which Dave also ends up breaking. The broken Royal Deringer is then combined with a magic cue ball to recreate Caledfwlch. Caledfwlch is one of the only weapons capable of harming the otherwise [[CompleteImmortality completely immortal]] BigBad, Lord English. During [S] Collide, Dave shows just how powerful Caledfwlch is when he uses it to [[spoiler:[[BeyondTheImpossible break the Unbreakable Katana]] and decapitate three people, one of whom was Lord English's avatar]] in one stroke.

* Fred Saberhagen's ''Literature/BookOfSwords'' gives each of the twelve eponymous swords a superpower. One provides uncanny luck, another instills loyalty, and a third creates illusions. Several tend to kill their wielders. And then there is Shieldbreaker, which instantly detonates any weapon used against it (spells and ''demons'' count as weapons), including other Swords, and makes the wielder immune to other Swords' effects like the aforementioned luck and illusions. Its weaknesses are small enough to be the surprise conclusion to both ''Swords'' series. Doomgiver also qualifies, as it gives the wielder a virtually impenetrable AttackReflector that can be used against the other Swords, and its only weakness is Shieldbreaker.

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'': Everything the [[FinalBoss Moon Lord]] drops is going to be the strongest of that class. The magic, melee, and ranged weapons it drops are, bar none, the best of their type (with the exception of the [[JokeItem Celebration]]). Of course, since they're only obtainable after the final boss, they're pretty much {{Bragging Rights Reward}}s
** Star Wrath: Essentially a Starfury on steroids, each swing of this weapon rains down three highly damaging stars that pierce enemies.
** Meowmere: The melee weapon with ''the'' highest melee base damage in the game, it fires out bouncy rainbow-trailing cats with each swing, dealing incredible damage in closed spaces.
** Terrarian: The strongest yoyo in the game with the second-highest base melee damage, it has an infinite flight time, and like the Flairon, it spews out powerful homing shots rapidly from the yoyo.
** SDMG: Basically the Megashark/Chain Gun on crack, this weapon has an extremely high rate of fire, 50% chance to not consume ammo, a much higher crit rate, and hurts even more than the other machinegun-type weapons.
** Lunar Flare: An upgraded Blizzard Staff, this magic weapon deals heavy damage with splash and can be aimed at any point the user wants it to hit for powerful precision damage. Not even walls are a problem with this weapon.
** Last Prism: The highest-DPS weapon in the game, it fires six streams that converge together to form a single beam that deals 6x the damage. It absolutely ''shreds'' almost anything that's not behind a wall. Its only drawback is the insane amount of mana it guzzles.

* Excalibur of ''Manga/SoulEater'' is the most powerful weapon in the world and is also what inspired the creation of [[EquipableAlly Demon Weapons]], and unlike Demon Weapons, which can only be used by someone the weapon can synchronize with, he can he can be used by anyone. Some of the known abilities he grants his wielder are Heavenly Wings, light speed movement, the ability to slash everything with ''[[StuffBlowingUp gigantic explosions of golden fire]]'', and cuting open dimensional portals. But almost nobody would ever want to wield Excalibur because he is an unlikeable egotistical lunatic.

*** An odd case with Prishe, during her EX mode she equips Destroyers, which on her original title are inferior to both the weapons used for her unique level 90 and 100 weapons on Dissidia. However the Destroyers were the best weapon a Monk could realistically obtain for a long time generally being considered a career goal.
