* ''TabletopGame/TheWitcherGameOfImagination'' has this relationship with crossbows, as long as their users aren't blind and have basic ''Shooting'' skill. They deal enough damage to take down anything human-sized with a single bolt. Critical hit or just good aiming allow to badly maim ''a dragon'', if not outright kill it.

* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Excalibur is '''the''' strongest [[EquippableAlly Demon Weapon]], and instantly usable by anyone without the (direct) need for compatibility like most have. The catch is that he's such an [[CloudCuckoolander insane]] [[{{Jerkass}} jackass]] that almost no one can put up with him, even for that much power. But Hiro, the only person we've seen that ''could'' stand him, instantly jumped from the DWMA's worst student to completely unbeatable once he partner with Excalibur. [[spoiler:Then even Hiro rejected Excalibur [[MinorFlawMajorBreakup for sneezing too much]]]].

* Crona from ''Manga/SoulEater'' is an excellent example. On hir own, xe is weak physically and so emotionally insecure that xe can barely even talk to other people on hir own. Literally 100% of Crona's power comes from Ragnarok, a demon sword made of black blood which was injected into Crona's body (give or take a few sword skills).

** As shown in ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', they turn even ''more'' deadly when given the chance to pilot [[MiniMecha Goblins]]. A single one can chew through a small army of Spartans and tanks, all while yelling through a megaphone about how awesome he is.

** Even earlier, the SilverAge League tended to encounter ordinary hoodlums who had stumbled upon amazing alien machines that enabled them to take on the entire team. They usually didn't reappear after a single story, typically because the alien devices would be destroyed by the heroes to end the menace.

** Additionally, artefacts pretty much intentionally invoke this trope in third edition. Not only do they possess power beyond normal items, they're indestructable and have their own mental stats and (usually) greater knowledge of waht's going on in the setting than the player using them. A character with an artefact in hand is almost a completely different, and much more powerful, character.
