* 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.

Added DiffLines:
* In ''VideoGame/SonicAndTheBlackKnight'', Sonic is tasked with not only retrieving the sword Caliburn, who becomes his teacher in all things knightly, but also to collect the weapons of the Knight of the Round Table. [[spoiler:The blades are first used to try to erect a barrier to stop Merlina from freezing Camelot in time, then all four are ultimately revealed to actually be Excalibur, making Sonic the true King Arthur.]]

* Every ''Franchise/BioShock'' game has one point where the protagonist needs to find a Vigor/Plasmid that will give them an ability they need to continue, such as "telekinesis" to grab explosives needed to remove rubble, "Incinerate" to melt a wall of ice, and "Electrobolt" needed to power a gondola. After the main point where it's needed to continue, the Vigor/Plasmid remains a useful tool in combat. * The Vampire Killer in ''/VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin''. An unusual case, since the Vampire Killer is A) a whip and B) the hero has it already. The real focus is the quest to unseal it and use it to defeat {{Dracula}}, but the hero is warned that if it's used too much [[ArtifactOfDoom it'll kill him]] the same way it killed his father. There's no ingame effect representing this, but it's hinted it takes longer than one would spend tramping around Castlevania for the effect to kick in.

* The Godsbane from ''VideoGame/DragonsDogma'' is a divine blade said to be able to guide the chosen to true freedom. [[spoiler: However the only thing you can do with the blade is to [[{{Sepukuu}} stab yourself to death]]. Indeed, it is a blade [[ItMakesSenseInContext made for committing suicide]]. Once you have become the [[{{God}} Seneschal]], you're permanently stuck beyond the Rift, and the only way out is, needless to say, cast away your life when it sees fit. Of course, you can also exploit it to re-roll chest loots and boss drop. That said, the Black Cats somehow managed to replicate the Godsbane, which can be bought ''as many as possible''.]]
