* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' the best weapon in the core game is between an Easter Egg long sword (the normal powered version is good too though), the main quest important hammer (which requires a special glove be worn with it so it doesn't kill you and drains your fatigue even if you have the glove) and a dagger that does 1.5 the damage of either, but needs to recharge after 11 hits. The limitations make the sword the best choice.
** The first expansion pack ups the power by giving you 2 unique uber swords that have 20-75 damage (plus 30 fire damage) and swing fast but no other high end weapons (oh and one of the swords [[spoiler:belonged to your previous incarnation]]). The 2nd expansion pack gives a spear that is blatantly inferior doing only 40-60 damage with some gimmicky enchantments that often backfire thanks to the reflect on high level foes (and is a two handed weapon!) that isn't very fast to attack with.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' plays with it. There are two options clearly designed to be the best weapon in game's top weapons, both swords: the core game is between an Easter Egg long sword (the normal powered version is good too though), the main quest important hammer one-handed EasterEgg upgrade for Goldbrand called Eltonbrand (which requires is a special glove be worn [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana to boot]]), and the two-handed "Paladin's Blade" Chrysamere. In practice, however, there are other weapons which can surpass those two (such as the blunt-weapon Sunder or the short-blade Black Hands Dagger) due to their enchantments, faster attacking speed, etc. Played with it so it doesn't kill you and drains because, if you've been focusing on increasing your fatigue even if you have the glove) and a dagger that does 1.5 the damage of either, but needs to recharge after 11 hits. The limitations make Long Blade skill, the sword options will still be better than the best choice.

others because you're more skilled with that type of weapon. The first ''Tribunal'' expansion pack ups then adds the power by giving SwordOfPlotAdvancement FlamingSword True Flame, which you 2 unique uber swords that have 20-75 damage (plus 30 fire damage) reforge with the intent of using it to kill a ''god''. After completing the expansion's main quest, you'll also get it's twin, the [[ShockAndAwe Lightning Sword]] Hopesfire. Unlike Eltonbrand and swing fast but no other high end weapons (oh Chrysamere, which require a time-consuming GuideDangIt sidequest and one completing the Imperial Legion faction questline, respectively, Trueflame and Hopesfire are simply handed to you during the main plot of the swords [[spoiler:belonged to your previous incarnation]]). The 2nd expansion pack gives a spear that is blatantly inferior doing only 40-60 damage with some gimmicky enchantments that often backfire thanks to the reflect on high level foes (and is a two handed weapon!) that isn't very fast to attack with.expansion.

* There are a few of these in ''Anime/ToukenRanbuHanamaru''. The catch? They're not props, they're characters. All of the characters are MoeAnthropomorphisms of historic Japanese swords. So swords like this manifest as extremely powerful - and [[{{Bishounen}} beautiful]] - "Sword Warriors".

* Averted in [[CelticMythology Irish myth]]; while their are plenty of powerful magical swords, such as Fragarach and Caladbolg, Cu Chulainn's spear [[BladeOnAStick Gae Bolge]] is probably the most enduringly famous weapon in the mythos.

* And in Creator/JimButcher's other series ''Literature/CodexAlera'', high Lords, including the First Lord often wield a ''FlamingSword'' when going into battle. Here, the sword itself is a typical sword, but their Furycrafting imbues it with fire.
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' novels, there are 3 Swords of the Cross. When wielded by the appropriate people, and doing God's work, they are well-nigh invulnerable and unstoppable, as seen in "Changes" when [[spoiler:Karrin Murphy]] wielding one, takes down several high Red Court nobles who are nearly {{Eldritch Abomination}}s in terms of power.

** Justified in that in the real Middle Ages, the sword was the weapon of choice of the feudal nobility, and most ASoIaF characters are exactly that. The Valyrian swords are rare weapons, and no common knight or mercenary can hope to have one.
