* Durandal gets a brief mention in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', and is one of the weapons in Gilgamesh's ''Gate of Babylon''. According to it's profile, it was given to Roland by an Archangel, which makes you wonder how Gilgamesh has a protoversion of it...

Added DiffLines:

* Amaterasu as she appears in ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'' utilizes all the Imperial Regalia. The Yasakani no Magatama is used to initiate an aura that boosts offense or speed of surrounding allies while she gets a small period of self-healing. The Yata no Kagami is used to generate a shield that decreases damage to her while building up a charge that can be shot back to the enemy for more damage the more she has been hit beforehand. And she's basically using her Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi to either hack and slash her enemies, or placing a damage-increasing debuff on them, silencing them or her ultimate wide strikes.


Added DiffLines:

* Since Thor appears in ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'', he naturally carries his Mjolnir around and has been using it more than his title, God of Thunder, imply.

* In ''{{Dinotopia}}'', Poseidos is thought to be Atlantis. It was an island with an advanced society that sank into the sea. Atlantis in the myths was said to belong to Poseidon, and things got garbled.

* Excalibur and the [[ExcaliburInTheStone stone from which it was retrieved]] do make an appearance in the main series and the spin-off ''JackOfFables,'' though... the sword is easily recognizable, the stone, however, goes through a change or two.

Durandal -- Sword of the Hero Roland, knight of Charlemagne, as well as Hector of Troy. Supposedly he threw it into a "poisoned stream" in order to protect it from the Saracens; this seems to have occasionally given it a "Darkness" element in fiction and games. It could also be associated with evil or [[VideoGame/{{Marathon}} insanity]]. [[Creator/{{Bungie}} One game studio]] has not only used it, but also the inscription on Ogier the Dane's sword Curtana, which read My name is [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Cortana]], of the same steel and temper as Joyeuse and [[VideoGame/{{Marathon}} Durendal]]. In ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' Durandal ''is'' Excalibur, having been stolen by Orlando/Roland and renamed to not arouse suspicion (because even he knows it was kind of a dick thing to do).

** Excalibur itself shows up throughout [[Franchise/FireEmblem the series]], but unlike most examples here, it, as well the similarly-named Rexcalibur, is usually portrayed as [[BlowYouAway a high-level wind tome]], not a sword.
