legend]]:
** Also, After the death of Uther Pendragon the Britons cannot agree on who should be the next king, as Uther's only son Arthur has been taken away by Merlin to be raised in secret. When the nobles turn to Merlin for advice, Merlin shows them a sword lodged in an anvil or rock placed in a churchyard at Westminster and prophecies that only the true king of Britain will be able to pull the blade out. When Arthur has grown, his kingship is revealed when he succeeds in pulling the sword out, after many others have tried to do so in vain. The tale of the Sword in the Stone first appears in Robert de Boron's ''Merlin'' and later also in ''Literature/LeMorteDarthur''.

* In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, it is stated that the Pokemon will only obey the original person that caught, trained, and raised it (and only if it considers him/her worthy). So care must be taken when loaning other people your Pokemon, or gifting them to others, or trading them to instruct the creature to "do whatever so-and-so tells you to do."

The best example of this being Ash's Charmander, which becomes rebellious when it evolves to a Charmander/Charmeleon, as it belonged to another trainer before joining him.



* Aegislash (a Steel/Ghost royal sword pokemon) from ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' can detect the qualities of leadership. According to legend, it can recognize those destined to become king.

Pokémon in general will only obey a trainer they respect, this is reflected by traded Pokémon only obeying you up to a certain level unless you have the right gym badge (otherwise they might act randomly in battle).
