** The Boganella in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', which [[ClusterFBomb talks like a stereotypical Bogan]] (the Australian equivalent of a redneck or chav). The Claptastic Voyage DLC introduces a gun that's constantly shrieking "KILL" as you fire it, a laser that has [[ArtfulDodger Pickle's]] voice and a shield that talks like Creator/RobinWilliams.

** If you take the AI core from "Out of Body Experience" to Marcus at the end of the quest, he'll install it in a gun that will provide commentary like "Nice one, boss!" when you kill an enemy, or "Why'd we stop shooting?" when you reload or if you aim down the sights ("Let's take a closer look.").

** If you take the Loader #1340's AI core from "Out of Body Experience" to Marcus at the end of the quest, he'll install it in a gun shotgun that will provide commentary like "Nice one, boss!" when you kill an enemy, or "Why'd we stop shooting?" when you reload or if you aim down the sights ("Let's take a closer look."). Take it to Zed and he'll install it in an Absorb shield that warns you when he's fully charged ("Come at me.") or depleted ("Sorry boss! I'm gone!"), as well as trash talk any elemental DamageOverTime that isn't Shock, the main weakness of all shields).

A weapon--usually a CoolSword--that talks. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Some combination of EmpathicWeapon, EvilWeapon, and ExpositionFairy may apply.

** Shinigami swords (zanpakutou) are born from the shinigami's soul. It takes talent and desire for the shinigami to awaken the living spirit within the sword for it to become an EmpathicWeapon and even more talent to learn its name and release its powers, at which point it crosses into a TalkingWeapon. Zanpakutou tend to share the shinigami's personality, including strengths and flaws, which can make it very hard for shinigami and their zanpakutou to get along. For those that crack the skill of Jinzen (the meditative skill of communing with the zanpakutou to strength bonds of trust and respect), great power can be developed and harnessed. It's not possible to reach the higher seats without this bond, and only one captain (Kenpachi Zaraki) has ever existed who had no communication with his zanpakutou. Lack of good communion with one's sword can diminish strength and make the sword itself fragile and prone to breaking. The manga mostly focuses on the MainCharacter's zanpakutou, Zangetsu, but has shown other zanpakutou such as Zabimaru [[spoiler: and Ouetsu Nimaiya's room full of HoneyTrap female zanpakutou spirits]].

* ''Literature/RoguesOfTheRepublic:'' There are a few ancient weapons scattered around with the souls of ancients bound within them. While the weapons retain their full intelligence and memories, they usually can't speak more than two or three phrases, and only in the ancient language.
