** In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', and ''Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire''[='=]s Delta Episode, you're ''required'' to catch the mascot legendary in order to proceed. Unlike other legendary Pokémon, defeating them in these scenarios causes them to respawn instantly, they give out no experience, and [[AntiFrustrationFeatures they have a slightly higher catch rate (45 as opposed to 3)]].

** Subverted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': due to the open-ended nature of the game, you don't need the Master Sword to defeat Ganon. It is indeed possible to defeat him with any of the otherwise ordinary weapons you can collect everywhere. You do, however, need to obtain the Master Sword to get the GoldenEnding.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has the hammer Sunder, the sword Keening and the gauntlet Wraithguard that you need to use together to defeat Dagoth Ur. Interesting thing is that they don't need to be used against him personally. You're supposed to strike the source of Dagoth Ur's powers, the Heart of Lorkhan, with Sunder and Keening to kill him.
** Its expansion ''Tribunal'' not only asks you to find but to repair and relight [[AwesomeButImpractical (yes it is a flaming sword)]] the blade Trueflame. It's important to the plot. Really. It ''is'' important to Almalexia and getting her to reveal the fact that [[spoiler:she's gone batshit crazy and thinks she needs to kill the Nerevarine, aka, you in order to maintain her god status. Getting the sword is probably meant to prove you're Nerevar's reincarnation]]. One of the people who help you restore the blade points out that the flames are pretty much for decoration, and have absolutely no effect on its performance as a weapon. Looks pretty, though.\\\
It is still a pretty powerful weapon. It is the most powerful artifact sword in the game. This means that it lacks the massive enchantments that are possible with player enchanted weapons. It does only 30 fire damage as opposed to the 300 possible with a top level sword and soul gem, as well as having a slow swung. It is one handed though which allows one to use a shield, which is at the very least an additional enchantment slot. Having a weapon do 300 magic damage sure can suck when you meet high level enemies that reflect/absorb magic.
** ''An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire'' has the Moon Reiver, the only sword that can hurt the final boss, Mehrunes Dagon.
** ''The Elder Scrolls V: 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.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'':
*** The main quest tasks you with acquiring
the Tools of Kagrenac, which are the blunt-weapon hammer Sunder, the sword Keening Sunder and the gauntlet Wraithguard that dagger Keening. [[spoiler: In a twist, you need to use together to defeat Dagoth Ur. Interesting thing is that they don't need to be used against him personally. You're supposed use them on [[BigBad Dagoth Ur]] himself to win. You must strike the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]], source of Dagoth Ur's powers, his (and the Heart of Lorkhan, [[PhysicalGod Tribunal]]'s) power, with Sunder the tools]].
*** Towards the end of the Imperial Legion questline, you'll be tasked with finding the legendary "Paladin's Blade" Chrysamere. It's the most powerful two-handed sword in the game. [[spoiler:You must turn it in to your commander if you want to complete the questline,
and Keening in order to kill him.
** Its expansion
get it back, you must best him in a duel. He will use said blade against you in said duel.]] Have fun.
*** The
''Tribunal'' not only asks expansion has you to find but to repair and relight [[AwesomeButImpractical (yes it is a flaming sword)]] reforge True Flame, the blade Trueflame. FlamingSword of the original Nerevar, as part of the main quest. It's important to the plot. Really. It ''is'' important to Almalexia actually a high quality weapon, and getting her to reveal the fact that [[spoiler:she's gone batshit crazy and thinks she needs to kill the Nerevarine, aka, you in order to maintain her god status.

One of the people who help you restore the blade points out that the flames are pretty much for decoration, and have absolutely no effect on its performance as a weapon. Looks pretty, though.\\\
It is still a pretty powerful weapon. It is the most powerful artifact sword
even more useful in the game. This means that it lacks the massive enchantments that are possible with player enchanted weapons. It does only 30 ''Bloodmoon'' expansion thanks to it's fire damage as opposed to the 300 possible with a top level sword and soul gem, as well as having a slow swung. It is one handed though which allows one to use a shield, which is at the very least an additional enchantment slot. Having a weapon do 300 magic damage sure can suck when you meet high level taking down the many fire-weak enemies that reflect/absorb magic.

* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' has the Sword of Light. Presented as a ForgottenSuperweapon or ExcaliburInTheRust, the Sword was created by a god and is one of the few things that can kill Mazoku, and it's reemergence marks a turning point in the divine stalemate. While the sword itself seems to be a minor plot point, it takes a sharp turn into the spotlight in the third season, as do the other weapons of its kind.

Most of the time, since said sword 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.

** The Master Sword in several ''Zelda'' games, starting with ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast''. Most prevalent in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' where [[spoiler:it is actually with you from the get-go as the Goddess Sword and turning it into the Master Sword happens over the course of the game. In a way the plot advances because of the sword]].
