** The Aedra, deities who [[CreationMyth aided in the creation]] of Mundus (the mortal plane) primarily worshiped in the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines]] religion, have provided some legendary weapons as well. Some of the most famous are Auri-El's Bow and Shield, Auri-El being the [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmeri]] [[NobleBirdOfPrey eagle]] version of Akatosh, the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time. (The Bow is said to be the weapon that launched [[TheMaker Lorkhan]]'s [[CosmicKeystone Heart]] down into the world after he was [[GodIsDead "killed"]] for his perceived treachery during creation.) Similarly, the Divines each contributed to the Crusader's Relics. Originally worn by [[GodInHumanForm Pelinal]] [[EternalHero Whitestrake]] during the Alessian Revolt when he defeated Umaril the Unfeathered, they would have to be collected and sanctified by "[[PlayerCharacter Pelinal Reborn]]" in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s ''Knights of the Nine'' expansion.

Each is associated with a particular Daedric (daemonic, more or less) deity and passes from owner to owner according to the wishes of those deities. Famous ones include the hammer Volendrung, the dagger Mehrunes' Razor, the Mace of Molag Bal, the sword Dawnbreaker and the staff Wabbajack.

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': The Master Sword, aka "the Blade of Evil's Bane," is as legendary as the Triforce itself. It is inscribed in Hyrule's lore that [[GoodHurtsEvil evil ones cannot touch it]], nor can anyone save for the [[TheChosenOne Chosen Hero]] [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield draw it from the Pedestal of Time]].

Some ''Zelda'' games (those made by Capcom) feature the Four Sword instead, which has the same "evil-destroying" power, and is also attached to both a sacred pedestal and the ancient malice of an eldritch BigBad.

* While ''Literature/LoneWolf'' has many a CoolSword and other awesome weapons, the Sommerswerd, the Sword of the Sun, is ''the'' blade of legend. This golden sword was forged by a god-like race and sent by the sun god Kai to the people of Sommerlund to aid them in fighting off the dark god Naar's champions, the Darklords of Helgedad. The second book revolves entirely around Lone Wolf retrieving the sword in order to repel another invasion by the Darklords.

** The 'Legion' expansion gives a legendary weapon for every available player class specialization. These range from old classics (such as twinblades forged from the broken shards of the previously mentioned Frostmourne, and the sword who broke Frostmourne in the first place) to completely new ones, which were given a fitting backstory.

A character in a work finds a weapon, and discovers that it is the same weapon from one of the [[OralTradition legends]] of their world. Most of the time, legendary weapons are a pretty big deal -- they don't call them "legendary" for nothing, after all -- and instead of being a ''very'' [[ExcaliburInTheRust old, rusty piece of scrap]] that's been in a display case for the last millennium, are actually extremely powerful and useful. They might even have the spirit of an ancient hero trapped in them, have immense magical properties, or be made with [[LostTechnology a technique that has been lost to the ages]]. Occasionally, when the protagonist is TheChosenOne of a {{Fantasy}} setting, they'll just happen to be a descendant of the last great hero to use that weapon, and the weapon [[OnlyTheChosenMaWield will unlock its true power only in their hands]].
