* In ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', the Shimada brothers, Genji and Hanzo can use mystical-seeming Asian dragons as part of their ultimate abilities. In the ''Dragons'' cinematic, after Genji reveals his ability to summon a dragon, Hanzo declares that only a Shimada can control the dragons in disbelief, suggesting that only their family has this power.

** A hidden weapon weapon in the recent game parodies this: you get the Sword, which, unfortunately, is still in the stone. At least the Stone makes a nice bludgeon.

** A hidden weapon weapon Parodied in ''Aria of Sorrow''. Soma can find the Sword in the recent game parodies this: you get the Sword, which, unfortunately, is still in the stone. At least the Stone makes a nice bludgeon.Stone, but he's not destined to rule, so he can't pull it out. However, by this point he has enough strength to wield it anyway, [[Funny/{{Castlevania}} stone and all]].

*** 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, wielding a Sword in a treacherous or unjust manner renders the holy blade vulnerable to destruction, either physical [[spoiler: (which is repairable)]] or (if used to kill an innocent) spiritual.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' was a parody of King Arthur, involving a golden plunger that only Mario could pull out of a toilet. The legend went that whoever pulled the plunger would defeat Koopa and become the king of Cramalot, but that didn't stop Mario from getting cold feet and passing it on to the wizard.

To be fair, he did defeat Koopa. Mario only refused the throne upon learning that, as the king of Cramalot, he'd have to subject himself to a pasta-free diet.

** Hachiken's sword, the Thunder-Cutter, cannot be used for evil. When Mumm-Ra tricks Hachiken into fighting Lion-O, Thunder-Cutter's refusal to let itself be drawn makes Hachiken see through Mumm-Ra's lies. In a later episode, the Lunataks steal the Thunder-Cutter and get around the sword's restrictions by giving it to a robot that doesn't understand concepts of good and evil. The restrictions are kicked in again when Hachiken touches the sword.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'': When the mind stone causes a mix-up between the Avengers' minds and their bodies, the one who gets Thor's body tries to lift Mjolnir but can't since he's not worthy and a FreakyFridayFlip doesn't trick the hammer.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]] is an outlier: Link is chosen from the get-go, being a descendant of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime the Hero of Time]] and the bearer of the Triforce of Courage (which comes when he's granted the clothes of the hero). When he goes to get the Master Sword, it's simply a matter of finding it, it did not require any kind of proof of the gods (other than possibly having to solve their puzzle, which itself may only have required his lineage to complete).
