It contrasts with the InfinityPlusOneSword, which is optional to the plot and is collected long after the protagonist ceases to require it. It is, however, somewhat of a headscratcher when said InfinityPlusOneSword (and even the InfinityMinusOneSword) is stronger; see PenultimateWeapon.

* Several Heisei ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series have the main character gain his SuperMode via the acquisition of a unique and powerful sword, hence the FanNickname "[=SwordGrade=]" ('''sword''' + up'''grade'''). Examples include Faiz's Faiz Blaster (doubles as a {{BFG}}!), Hibiki's Armed Saber, and Den-O's [=DenKamen=] Sword; Kabuto's Perfect Zecter and Kiva's Zanvat Sword are typically counted despite coming ''after'' the Rider got his SuperMode. The rest [[note]]Agito [[ShiningGoodness Shining Form]], Blade King Form, Double CJX, OOO [=PuToTyra=], Fourze Cosmic, and Wizard Infinity[[/note]] have swords (or in OOO and Wizard's cases, axes) that are part of their powers, rather than the source of them. The stand-outs are Decade, who uses the same weapon in all his forms, and Gaim, whose penultimate form gets the unique weapon (though his final form can also use it due to being a WalkingArmory).

* In early editions of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', Artifacts were meant to be this. Rather than just supremely powerful magic items (which, admittedly, they were), every Artifact had a backstory and usually some kind of curse or other condition that made life... "interesting" for anyone who ended up with one in their possession. The Hand and Eye of Vecna, for example, slowly drove their bearers to recreate Vecna's fallen empire (with plenty of tyranny along the way). Or digging up pieces of the Rod of Seven Parts caught the attention of various powerful demons since it was used to bind the essence of their greatest lord. An Artifact was something that entire campaigns were meant to turn around, and were never meant to be treated as just another step up in power for a PlayerCharacter.
