** This leads to some tension between Link and Zelda in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]''. In preparation for the coming of Calamity Ganon, Link is quickly found to be the true wielder of the Master Sword and is made Zelda's bodyguard in response. Zelda, on the other hand, is unable to unlock her "Sealing Power" necessary to defeat Ganon; she thus finds Link's presence a constant reminder of her own failure to fulfill her destiny. Only by gradually opening up to her protector does she find out that Link is just as nervous as she is about the upcoming fight against Ganon.

* The Mani Katti blade from ''VideoGame/FireEmblem [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe : The Blazing Sword]]''. It's sort of an Arthurian thing... Lyn successfully removed it from its scabbard after the level boss failed. Of course, she had to kill him to get it done.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind]]'' The Moon-And-Star ring is said to be blessed by Azura to kill anyone trying to wear it other than Nerevar (or his reincarnation, the Nerevarine). Whether this is for real or a story made up to scare off pretenders is never discovered. However, certain moments imply that being the Nerevarine is more a matter of ''becoming'' than something you are born as -- if you fulfill the requirements to be the Nerevarine, and follow what the prophecy says the Nerevarine is supposed to do, then you ''are'' the Nerevarine, and so can wear Moon-and-Star. In other words, only the Chosen may wield, but the Chosen is partly self-chosen.

* The Moon and Star Ring of Nerevar (''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''), that legends say could only be used by the reincarnation of the Chimer king Nerevar ([[spoiler: this is you]]). It's never demonstrated if this actually true or not, and some moments imply it may be a myth and that anybody can wear the ring, as people are less eager to claim to be Nerevarine if they believe there's a magical artefact that can kill them.

* The Crusader's Relics (and weapons) can only be wielded by the Divine Crusader in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' expansion Knights of the Nine. In addition, if the wielder gains two points in infamy then the artifacts cannot be used until the pilgrimage is undertaken again.
** The amulet of kings can only be worn by someone of the royal line. If you try to equip it you are given a message that it simply slips off your neck.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' reveals that Deadric artifacts function this way. While the artifacts themselves aren't sentient, just really really strong the deadra who created them can be really picky about who uses them. Hircine, not liking a werewolf who uses his ring removes all control the man has over his transformations (though if you attempt to help the werewolf Hircine will make the ring work correctly for you) while one necromancer spent decades working defects into Azura's star to remove her control over it so he could live forever using it.

** Despite being evil, the villainesses Genocide and Devastation are able to wield the Lasso, thanks to their unique origins that fool the Lasso into thinking they are Wonder Woman.



* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueThroneOfAtlantis'', only Atlantean royalty can wield the Trident of Poseidon. Anyone else who tries to hold it gets electrocuted.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans''[='=] second season, the Gundam Bael is essentially treated as Excalibur in the form of a HumongousMecha, with claims that it possesses the soul of Gjallarhorn founder Agnika Kaieru and whomever can pilot it is the organization's rightful leader. [[spoiler:After [=McGillis=] Fareed claims it, he implies that Gjallarhorn screwed themselves out of using it; they built the Gundam to use the [[BrainComputerInterface Ālaya-Vijñāna System]], then declared such implants taboo, and then the "secret" of its operation was lost to history.]]

* In ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars - Spring Carnival'', the main villain, having stolen the heroine's collective Transformation Trinket, tries to use them to turn into a so-called "Cure Thief". However, it's pointed out by one of the fairies that only the "Legendary Hero Precure" (re: our heroines) can use them. [[IMeantToDoThat He laughs it off and claims he knew that.]]

** This was actually a {{retcon}} as, during the Silver Age and further on, anyone could run around with a Green Lantern ring if they were taken from their user. Since ''Green Lantern: Rebirth'', the sufficient amount of emotion was set in place.

* In ''Franchise/WonderWoman'', the Lasso of Truth can only be wielded by one who is worthy. Played in reverse in ''ComicBook/JusticeLordsBeyond''. [[spoiler: Wonder Woman uses the Lasso of Truth to strangle/snap the neck of her Justice Lord counterpart for killing Lord Batman, and so she is no longer worthy and the lasso disintegrates.]]

** In ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'', Cheetah manages to steal the Lasso, but when she snares Steve Trevor with it, he's easily able to escape. He explains that Cheetah wasn't worthy so she couldn't use its powers, then snares her with it and knocks her out.

*In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', the Kanohi Ignika has a mind of its own, and only chooses to grant its power over life to those with no hesitation or fear in their hearts. So while previous Toa died when attempting to use the mask because they still were afraid, only Toa Matoro succeeded when he [[spoiler: sacrificed his own life to resurrect the dead Mata Nui and save his friends]].

** This is averted, however, if the Pokémon are familiar enough with the individuals in the group. For example, Ash's Pokémon have no issues with obeying Misty or Brock when separated from Ash, even without permission.
