* In SoundHorizon's ''Marchen'' album, "The Blue Count's Castle" reveals that [[TheBluebeard Bluebeard]] wields this lance for... whatever reason. Although it may well simply be named after the original.

* Variation on the nails legend: in Piers Anthony's ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series, reference is made to how the nails were fashioned. When the time came for Jesus to be crucified, the Roman soldiers needed to have nails made, but no one would make them once they found out who was to be crucified with them. After several fruitless attempts, [[IdiotBall the Roman soldiers finally wised up]] and didn't tell the next forger who the nails were for--until he had made three nails and was working on the fourth. Once he found out, he then refused to finish the last nail. The soldiers took the completed three, thus supposedly explaining why Jesus had his feet nailed together instead of separately--while the blacksmith and his family were forced to flee from terrible, nightmare visions of the unfinished nail following them everywhere they went. The forger was Roma...thus explaining [[CommonKnowledge why their people wander to this day]]. Considering the author got everything right about the origin of "Gypsy" and their being native to India, and that their depiction was both sympathetic and working hard to overturn a lot of stereotypes, these little lapses can be forgiven. Besides, it was a pretty good (albeit entirely fictional?) legend.

* Also the Graphic Novel ''ComicBook/{{Camelot 3000}}'', in which the Grail transforms a {{muta|nts}}ted Knight back into human form, and then, when stolen by Mordred and merged into a suit of armor, creates an armor that instantly [[HealingFactor heals any and all damage]], no matter how fatal. Not that it really did Modred that much good...

* ''ThePracticalPrincess'' references this when the titular princess is likewise trying to dissuade an unwanted suitor - she requests the fireproof robe, then the jewelled branch and rejects him for bringing fakes. (He kidnaps her instead before she can carry on to more of the requests, and the story ends as a GenderFlipped Rapunzel.)

* In Creator/HarryHarrison's ''Literature/TheHammerAndTheCross'' series, the word 'Grail' turns out to be a corruption of 'graduale', Latin for 'ladder', and refers to the ladder which Joseph of Arimethea used to take Jesus down from the Cross and as a stretcher to bear him away. ''King and Emperor'', the third book, has the titular King and Emperor both seeking the Grail where it is hidden by the UsefulNotes/{{Gnostic|ism}}s.

* In ''{{Rifts}}'', Atlantis was thrown into a pocket dimension after experiments by the ancient Atlanteans WentHorriblyWrong. The Coming of the Rifts caused Atlantis to return, which raised the sea level around the globe. Obviously, the original inhabitants are long since gone, and Atlantis is now the domain of an EldritchAbomination and his thousands of slaves.

* The hammer is of course the focal point in the ''ComicBook/DeRodeRidder'' album ''De Hamer van Thor'' [[note]]Thor's Hammer[[/note]]. Both Mjollnir and Gungnir also make an appearance in the album ''De Walkure'' [[note:The Valkyrie]], where they are wielded by their original owners. The album ''Doodsbrenger'' [[note]]Deathbringer[[/note]] briefly shows how Mjollnir was originally forged (from mithril, according to the story!), but instead focusses on the sword Deathbringer, which was forged at the same time but ended up hidden on Midgard, where it was eventually found by the album's main villain.
