* The Book of Darkness in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is a powerful ArtifactOfDoom capable of granting world-destroying powers to any mage. When it landed in Hayate's possession, she took good care of it not because she knew what it was, but because it looked really pretty in her bookshelf.

* This is the solution to one story in the Literature/HerculePoirot collection ''The Labours of Hercules''. A priceless Renaissance goblet is stolen and then disappears for ten years. Why has it not come back onto the market? [[spoiler:Poirot finds it in a convent, being used as an ordinary cup.]]

** [[spoiler:Which Lucina attempts to do herself in a support conversation with her (possible) brother or sister. [[VerbalIrony After berating them for using such a heralded sword for a degrading job as chopping apples]].]]

* ''GhostbustersTheVideoGame'': One of the Cursed Artifacts is a clock that can tell the time at which its present owner will die. The flavor-text notes that the clock's hands spin out of control at GBHQ, because it's near the ghosts in the Containment Unit. "Peter uses it as a desk fan."

* One of Creator/NeilGaiman's short stories, "Chivalry", involves the HolyGrail being found by an old lady in a thrift store. The ancient knight who comes in search of the grail discovers that she knows ''exactly'' what it is, and keeps it for no greater reason than because it looks nice on her mantle.

He offers to trade several other priceless treasures for it, [[LampshadeHanging knowing that she will use them for decoration the same way]]. At the end of the story, she goes back to the thrift store and finds the lamp from the Thousand And One Nights... but [[SubvertedTrope concludes that she has nowhere to put it]].

* ''Series{{Millennium}}'' did this with a chunk of the cross which once held Christ. A rival faction called [[ThoseWackyNazis Odessa]] had the priceless artifact in a beautiful glass case on a velvet cushion, with a Nazi flag behind it. When the Millennium Group proper gets ahold of it, the [[BigGood Old Man]] uses it as the other half of a bookends. It's practically a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
