* ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': How to activate a Dungeon Heart: From [[https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/dungeon-keeper-ami-sailor-moon-dungeon-keeper-story-only-thread.30066/#post-6355661 the first chapter]]:
--> The dungeon heart, while not being sentient, reacted according to its programming when it felt itself being accessed. User is intending to use my power to destroy her enemies? Check. User's blood? On the cover, coagulated but present. Check. Strong source of magical power? Oh hell yes! Check.

Supertrope to LevelLockedLoot, LoyalPhlebotinum, OnlyThePureOfHeart, and OnlyTheChosenMayWield. SisterTrope to OperatorIncompatibility. Contrast SelfGuardingPhlebotinum, which is when the item protects itself ''against'' people with a certain quality. See also PhlebotinumHandlingEquipment. If a character is the only one in the cast who meets the requirements, they might also be TheTeamBenefactor.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': with the exception of the [[MatterReplicator replicator wand]] in "Onion Trade", gem technology (most obviously [[PortalNetwork Warp Pads]]) can only be activated by gems and lays dormant otherwise. It's unclear if this is a deliberate feature or [[OperatorIncompatibility accidental]], but the result is [[SufficientlyAdvancedBambooTechnology ancient-looking high technology]] sitting around the Earth unguarded for thousands of years without any human reverse-engineering.

** {{Downplayed|Trope}} example: The Holy Avenger longsword is ordinarily "just" a +2 cold iron longsword. In the hands of a [[ThePaladin paladin]] it becomes a +5 holy cold iron longsword that also provides spell resistance to the wielder and anyone adjacent to them, as well as allowing them to cast ''[[StatusBuffDispel greater dispel magic]]'' once per turn.
