* The eponymous Silmarils from ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' burned any evil creature touching them, such as Morgoth and Carcharoth, while sparing the good-aligned heroes such as Beren and Eärendil. Becomes a plot point late in the book, when two remaining sons of Fëanor (Simarils' creator) finally get their hands on their "heirloom"--only to find that the Simarils reject and burn them, [[HeWhoFightsMonsters after all they have done to get them back]].

* [[WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat Felix the Cat's]] [[WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat Magic Bag of Tricks]] is more than capable of defending itself from The Professor should it fall into his hands. It has been known to violently attack or backfire on Professor whenever he tries to exploit its abilities, like turning into a giant balloon in [[Recap/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat1x04FelixOutWest "Felix Out West"]] or chasing Professor around like an angry dog in [[Recap/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat1x11FelixInEgypt "Felix In Egypt".]]

* ''Literature/TheBelgariad'''s Orb of Aldur does this to some extent, being artifact with nigh-unlimited power and a sense of its own purpose. The legend that OnlyThePureOfHeart can touch it and survive was [[ILied invented wholesale]] by Belgarath the Sorcerer, but given that it [[WoundThatWillNotHeal permanently]] mutilated a {{god|OfEvil}} who abused its abilities, people tend not to keep away from it unless they're sure they're on its good side.

* Thanks to poor Broderick Bode, we learn in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' that touching a prophecy in the aptly-named Hall of Prophecies at the Ministry of Magic has ''very'' bad consequences for you unless you're the subject of the prophecy. The protective enchantments placed around the prophecies make Voldemort's attempts just to listen to the complete prophecy about TheChosenOne last an entire school year.

* In ''{{Literature/Lensman}}'', the titular Lens will kill anyone but its owner if it's not being worn, to prevent anyone from impersonating the Lensmen. Boskone found this out scientifically in the prequel, by forcing enough workers to hold onto the thing and die until they were satisfied it wasn't coincidental.
