** The Sweet Memories Keyblade unlocked from 100 Acre Wood in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' has 0 attack and magic power in the original game making it the weakest keyblade in the series. That weak attack power makes it ideal for levelling up the Valor drive form which gains experience from each hit dealt to an enemy. It also has the Lucky Lucky skill, which increases the rate of item drops. The Final Mix version rejigged it's moveset so it has +4 magic, which makes it one of the most powerful magical Keyblades equalling Bond of Flame and only toped by the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Swords]]. It also got Drive Convertor, meaning it can also be used to leavel up all Drive forms but particularly Master form.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2'' Roxas use a stick for a single mission. It is entirely useless, but somehow retains the passive abilities of whatever Keyblade you had equipped. Which means with the right setup, it can can randomly [[StandardStatusEffects light Heartless on fire or freeze them solid]]. As Xion puts it:

** Also from ''Kingdom Hearts II'' is the Gull Wing. It had no magic power in the original game (the Final Mix boosts it) but it also increases experience earned if HP is below 50%.

*** ''Tribunal'' adds the Bi-Polar Blade as a reward for completing "[[MatchMakerQuest The Match Maker]]" side quest in a certain way. The two enchantments on the blade cancel each other out, which is fitting given the name of the weapon, but it is still a powerful blade in it's own right - dealing base damage on the level of the game's other artifact two-handed blades. Unlike the other artifact two-handed blades, which are in the hands of powerful enemies toward the end of lengthy faction quest lines, the Bi-Polar Blade can be obtained as soon as you reach Mournhold and requires no combat as part of the quest to obtain it. (It can also be sold to the Mournhold Museum for a cool 20,000 gold if you prefer.)

** Also of note: there was Diotoir's fur in the earlier series. All it ever seemed to do was catch fire really easily, so it was practically useless right? ''Wrong''. The robot was barely actually damaged by the fur if it did catch on fire, and the fur had a very nasty tenancy to snag off onto the opponents robots and interfere with their systems, as Pussycat and Tornado found out.

* Not actually a video game, but certainly similar; in the sport of UsefulNotes/RobotCombat, chain flail weapons have always been considered utterly useless weapons. {{Epic Flail}}s they were not, as they usually just dragged around on the floor of the battle arena, occasionally bumping against an opposing robot to absolutely no effect or getting caught on something and anchoring their wielder down. However, in Series 10 of ''Series/RobotWars'', a CrazyAwesome robot called [[Characters/RobotWarsChampionsAndGrandFinalists Nuts 2]] (previously a JokeCharacter) had amped up the spin speed of their 2-wheeled body to unprecedented levels, meaning the chain flails equipped on either side spun at an ''incredible'' velocity, finally giving the hammer weights at the end of the chains the necessary impact to smash enemy components and batter their armour, and allowing them to take meaningful advantage of the long reach a chain flail was always intended to offer. Combined with a bit of customised technology called a Meltybrain circuit, Nuts 2 was also able to move across the floor while spinning at full speed and with its new deadly weapons a robot that had previously never won a battle ''reached the Grand Final'' and even ''[[DefeatingTheUndefeatable overcame the unbeaten reigning champion Carbide]]'' in the first melee round!

The true value of this sword is that it "[[ExactWords Always hits for 1 damage]]" when the "Fight" command is used; ''it never misses''. Because Magic Sword skills ''enhance'' a weapon, with the strikes ''themselves'' inflicted with the "Fight" command, any magic sword spell that inflicts negative status will ''always'' affect the enemy without immunity to that specific status, including the few bosses that are not immune to instant death, petrification, or tension (warp). It is almost an essential item to low-level runs. It is also useful for killing the game's MetalSlime, the Skull Eater, which is nigh invulnerable despite only having one HP, except against a sword that never misses and always does 1 damage.
