* One of Creator/NeilGaiman's short stories, "Chivalry", involves the holy grail 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.

* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' Warehouse 23 mentioned that one of the powers ascribed to the Ark of the Covenant was that it would shoot lightning to kill the vermin on the Israelites' path, thus making it the Bug Zapper Of The Gods, and dared the GM to imagine a Secret Master decadent enough to use it only as such.

* Mummies were once a lot more common in Egypt, since mummification had previously been a very popular form of burial. Before the world fully appreciated the scientific and historical significance of mummies, many of them were used to make medicine (not something they're good for). There are also stories of them being used as fuel for locomotives, but the jury's still out on the truth of that.
