** The [[EvilKnockoff Apokoliptian counterpart]] to the Mother Box is the Fatherbox. It too is sentient. Unlike the Mother Box, it is manipulative and controlling...not unlike {{Darkseid}} himself, one of the worst fathers in comics. When Orion was given a Fatherbox to replace his seemingly dead Mother Box, it tried to turn him back to Darkseid.

* [[WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat Felix the Cat's]] [[WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat Magic Bag of Tricks]] is strongly implied to be sentient and have a personality of its own. It also pulls double duty as LoyalPhlebotinum, since it refuses to work for anyone besides Felix ([[Recap/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat1x64MartinTheMartianMeetsFelixTheCat although it made a one-time exception for Felix's friend Poindexter]]).

* ''Toys/{{BIONICLE}}'': Energized Protodermis and Antidermis. For Energized Protodermis, see the page quote. Antidermis, meanwhile, is a semi-gaseous substance that renders those it comes in contact with [[MassHypnosis extremely suggestible]]. The "sentient" part comes in when it's revealed [[spoiler: it's the essence/consciousness of the Makuta, and the quantity currently in the hands of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Piraka]] is the consciousness of the BigBad.]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Any magic item in some editions of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' can be made intelligent - this is most frequently found in [[EmpathicWeapon weapons]], but nearly anything enhanced by magic can be given intelligence. Most artifacts, in fact, are intelligent, and have specific agendas of their own. Any intelligent item can hold back on granted powers if it feels like it (generally, if the wielder isn't doing something the item wants - in at least two cases, this can include ''living''), and sufficiently strong ones can [[PeoplePuppets force users to take particular actions]].

* Simon R. Green's ''SecretHistories'' series concerns this, first with [[spoiler:the family's enchanted armor]] is powered by a evil fugitive extradimensional being that eats newborns. The replacement is possibly a good guy, but being a StarfishAlien it's not easy to tell its complete motives.
