* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Prince Sidon wears a sword on his hip, but like all the other [[FishPeople Zora]] he favors the spear in actual combat.



* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-572 SCP-572]] is a replica sword in a fantasy style, which, when held, produces a major mind-control effect, whereupon people will become convinced of its superior balance and sharpness, of which it really has neither, being purely a decorative piece. It also compels them to perform insane stunts with it (all while convincing them they can), such as deflecting bullets with the blade, taking on trained swordsmen with real swords, and cutting moving cars in half. Due to the prevalence of unnecessary blades facing in odd directions, the slightest swing will result in injury to the user. Fortunately, upon removing the sword from the holder with tongs, the psychological effects can be instanly redacted by a smack on the head.

* Subverted with the Eto Gun in ''Manga/EtCetera''. It looks like a toy gun and could not be used to shoot normally, but when added with a proper animal extract, it is considered one of the strongest weapons in the West.

* Power Forged weapons in the ''WheelOfTime'' look like this because they have been enchanted to never break, rust or need sharpening. One character mentions that over the thousands of years since his sword had been made his family has only had to replace the hilt.

** Correction: He has used it, it's just exclusively for opponents he considers unworthy of facing his powered armor and other abilities. Granted, it sees less and less use over the years, but it has been used before.

* Minfilia in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' carries a Mythril Dagger that is imbued with materia for enhanced power. However, due to her being more of a political figure than an actual fighter, she never uses the knife at all and she also doesn't use it in the times where she is captured.
