** 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.

* Dual Blade in ''Franchise/{{Lufia}}'' resonates with spiritual power. Sufficiently powerful beings can make it ring, unleashing its full power, and all of these beings are gods, until Maxim comes along.

* ''Series/TheGoodies''. Spoofed in the King Arthur episode; faced with the Sword In The Stone problem, the Goodies just pick up the whole lot and thump the villains with the rock on the end.

** 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''.

** Thor is exiled to Midgard (Earth) and stripped of his power. When he finds Mjölnir, his hammer, he can't lift it due to the protective spell his father placed on it that keeps anyone but the worthy from wielding it. After CharacterDevelopment and a HeroicSacrifice, the magic judges him worthy, and the hammer flies to him and restores his powers.

** The three holy swords used by Knights of the Cross (outright stated to be [[spoiler:Kusanagi, Durandal and Excalibur]]) respond strongly to powerful faith, hope, and love, respectively[[note]]Note that none of these feelings need be towards God, just focusing on the base feeling. A man who believes in right overcoming wrong, that one person can make a difference, can wield the Sword of Faith, while a monster mother defending her daughter from the forces of evil can draw out the Sword of Love's power even if she is tainted by evil herself. Sanya, KNight of Hope, doesn't even believe in God, taking an agnostic view, but has never had trouble drawing out his Sword's power[[/note]]. Further, it's revealed in ''Small Favor'' that all three of the most recent Knights have royalty in their ancestry[[note]]Shiro was descended from the last king of Okinawa, Michael is descended from Charlemagne, and Sanya's ancestry links him to Saladin, [[spoiler: which strongly implies that Butters has royal ancestry as well]][[/note]]. It is also important to note not every wielder is meant to be a life-long Knight. Many Knights are one-timers, who take up the Sword during some crisis, wield it to victory, and leave it aside once the danger has past. Note that unworthy mortals can still ''pick up'' and fight with the Swords, but the weapons don't provide them with any particular advantage over plain steel. Moreover, if a treacherous person is given authority over the blade, say the Knight gives a thief the Sword to defend himself when the Knight is out of commission, wielding a Sword in a treacherous or unjust manner renders the holy blade vulnerable to destruction, either physical or (if used to kill an innocent) spiritual.

* ''Series/{{Galavant}}: There is a legend of a king who will come and bring all the kingdoms under his reign in peace. The mythical sword is even in a stump with a sign engraved on the stump telling people this is the real sword. The titular hero Galavant even comes across it [[spoiler:but doesn't try pulling it out. He doesn't even read the sign. Neither does his companion, the former evil King Richard, who pulls the blade out of the stump, realize the meaning of this event]]. Later in the series finale, the True King loses the sword, it landing in a rock but the BigBad cannot pull it out. After he is defeated, the True King shows off his ability to put the blade in any rock or ground and be able to pull it out.
