** Also once when Piper pulled [[PublicDomainArtifact Excalibur]] from the stone, the sword would let no one else [[[EmpathicWeapon but]] [[LoyalPhlebotinum her]] touch it, though a demon used a spell to amass a bunch of power and take it from her.

* ''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.

* ''Literature/{{Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince}}'': The cursed opal necklace that kills anyone who touches it. Bonus points for being a ChekhovsGun from its brief mention in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets Chamber of Secrets]].''

* In ''InuYasha'', the sword Tessaiga has a barrier around it that prevents demons from touching it. Humans and half-demons can touch it without pain, however.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* The Omnitrix from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' generates a small field around itself when someone who is not the person who it is currently attached to tries to touch it. However, it should noted that the Omnitrix is neither [[EmpathicWeapon Empathic]] nor [[LoyalPhlebotinum Loyal]] and only tries to protect itself; in fact, one way you can obtain it is to kill the current user and then take it for yourself.

* ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'': The Cave of Wonders, where Aladdin first found both the flying carpet and Genie, would only allow one who was worthy, [[ArcWords "The Diamond in the Rough"]], to enter. Even then it would not permit Aladdin to touch any of the treasure except for the lamp.
