Most of the time, since said weapon acts as an AmplifierArtifact, it is the only AchillesHeel of the {{immortal|ity}} or NighInvulnerable BigBad. It may also be an example of a LegendaryWeapon.

* In the ''Videogame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' ''III'' expansion ''Armageddon's Blade'', the titular campaign revolves around Armageddon's Blade, a sword capable of setting the world of Enroth aflame. After their defeat in the main game, the Kreegans devote their efforts to forging the blade, a threat so dire that the legendary Elemental Confluxes appear to aid the heroes in stopping them. The sword is forged, but the heroes are able to wrest it away from the Kreegans and use its power against them. Queen Catherine entrusts her ally Gelu with the Blade...a decision that has dire consequences for Enroth.

** Minor example in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI''. During the quest that unlocks the Samurai job the player is extolled with how the blade is an extension of its owner, and upon completion of the quest received a level 1 Great Katana to wield on your new job. Most players quickly trash that weapon once they've gained a couple levels, but when you hit level 40 and attempt to do the [=AF1=] weapon quest you need that weapon to upgrade it. If you didn't cherish your blade you'll have to pay out a health sum (at the time the job was released anyway) to buy a replacement from the NPC.

*** The ''Tribunal'' expansion has you reforge True Flame, the FlamingSword of the original Nerevar, as part of the main quest. It's actually a high quality weapon, and is even more useful in the ''Bloodmoon'' expansion thanks to it's fire enchantment taking down the many fire-weak enemies there.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has Nettlebane. It is the only weapon that can harm the Gildergreen, a sacred tree, and it is needed to clear a path to the Gildergreen and retrieve some of its sap. This is just part of a small sidequest though.

*** In the ''Dawnguard'' DLC, there is a Bow of Plot Advancement, [[SacredBowAndArrows Auriel's Bow]], which you need if you want to defeat the final boss at the end of the quest line. Of course, said Bow is also very useful against undead.

* 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 [[{{Seppuku}} stab yourself to death]]. Indeed, it is a blade [[ItMakesSenseInContext made for committing suicide]]. Once you have become the [[AGodIsYou 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''.]]

* The Silver/Cleria Sword in ''VideoGame/{{Ys}} I and II''. In Book 1, you get it right before TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon, and there is an InfinityPlusOneSword in said dungeon, but that doesn't work against Dark Fact. In ''Book II'', it is the InfinityPlusOneSword, and you obtain it just before fighting the BigBad Darm. In ''Ys Origin'' it's the same sword as in ''Book I'', but you get it in a cutscene after defeating the penultimate boss and before facing the final boss in one route. In ''Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys'', you start with the Cleria Equipment, but lose it shortly after, to regain it near the end of the game. ''Ys: The Ark of Napishtim'', the sixth game in the series, has only three swords (which can be upgraded) and all of them are relevant to the plot. In ''Videogame/YsTheOathInFelghana'' this sword and the InfinityPlusOneSword are the same: it's obtained automatically before the final dungeon, and is the only weapon capable of breaking the barrier spell used by the penultimate boss.
