* Keyblades in the ''KingdomHearts'' series. In the first game, it looked as though Sora was the only chosen one, with a brief tug-of-war for control with RivalTurnedEvil Riku. Then King Mickey was revealed to have one at the end, and it's become TheChosenMany since then.

* 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.]]

* The Staff of Ages from ''VideoGame/{{Shadowgate}}'' can only be used by the bloodline of kings, starting with Lord Jair, the hero of the original game. [[spoiler:This comes up later in ''Shadowgate 64'', where civilian Del Cottonwood must wear a ring owned by said bloodline in order to even carry the Staff safely. And when the time comes to defeat the Warlock Lord with it, he has to give the Staff to a ''statue'' of Lord Jair, then put the ring on it, whereupon it comes to life and kills the Warlock Lord.]]

* This is implied to be the case with [[TheTrickster trickster demigod]] Maui's magical fishhook in ''Disney/{{Moana}}''. It was a gift from the gods that grants Maui great powers, including VoluntaryShapeshifting; he loses it during his first battle with Te Ka, the fire demon. When Moana finds Maui, he insists that they recover the fishhook before he helps her complete her quest to restore [[MineralMacGuffin the Heart of Te Fiti]] (which Maui himself stole) to its original location--the hook was picked up by Tamatoa, an [[GiantEnemyCrab enormous hermit crab]] who loves to collect rare treasures. Both Tamatoa and Moana are capable of picking up the fishhook, but they can't tap into its magic. Unfortunately, stealing the Heart and being [[ItsAllAboutMe generally selfish]] have made Maui unable to use its powers properly, which [[HeroicBSOD temporarily devastates him]], as he's tied most of his self-worth to the weapon. It's only by developing a genuine bond with Moana and teaching her how to navigate the sea that he is allowed to master it again. [[spoiler: Maui [[HeroicSacrifice allows the hook to shatter]] while battling Te Ka in an effort to buy Moana time to restore the Heart, having learned that he can still be himself regardless of its powers. As a [[SweetAndSourGrapes reward for his humility]], Te Fiti grants him a new hook.]]

** The Heart itself may also count--when Moana demonstrates her kindness and love of the sea as a baby, the [[GeniusLoci ocean itself]] sends her the gem, though she doesn't realize what it is. Her [[CoolOldLady grandmother Tala]] does, though, and keeps it safe until Moana is old enough to go on the journey to restore the Heart.

* The Mani Katti blade from ''VideoGame/FireEmblem[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade : The Blazing Blade]]''. 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.

** Gleefully spoofed in "Like a Virgin". Dean needs a sword that can kill a dragon; conveniently the local expert has one of the only surviving swords in her basement. Unfortunately it's embedded in a huge stone, both to prevent people stealing it and well, because it was fashionable a while back. Only a brave knight can remove the stone, so Dean rises to the challenge... and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TivWgU3u0M& fails ignominiously as shown here]]. TimeForPlanB, which involves [[CuttingTheKnot cracking the stone with plastic explosive]]. It works, only for Dean to discover he's cracked the sword in half too.

** Of the strongest of holy magics, Soulfire, the thing He and His angels used to make Reality, can be given to a mortal to wield, but can only be done when Lucifer has acted first with giving his agents Super-Hellfire. Soulfire, when invoked, makes the magic or action have more substance, making it able to break through some mystical defenses that a foe might have. [[CastFromHitPoints However, it eats at the soul of the user]] and if one uses too much, the person will not recover.
