* 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]].

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has the Colt. A bullet fired from this gun can kill nearly anything, even creatures that are normally ImmuneToBullets. In fact, it's specifically stated that there's only a total of five beings in all of creation that it ''can't'' kill (implied to be God and the four Archangels).
