* ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' character Alberich, a weapons training master, sourly notes that he ''hates'' this trope. People get overconfident, and then when they don't have the named weapon they don't fight well enough with unnamed ones. He won't let his pupils practice with any weapons but those found in the salle, and if he finds out that one of them has picked a favorite sword or whatever he has it melted down. [[GoodIsNotNice He's a good guy]], just so you know.
** In the same universe, there is the sword named Need. She's a sword an ancient mage/fighter bound her soul to.
