* The axe from ''UnforgottenRealms'' speaks in a French accent, apparently. It turns out he was originally a lumberjack/wizard who was transmogrified into an axe, then brainwashed so he thought that he'd been an axe all along.

* Racath's sword, Daragoian, in ''Attrition Acts of Penance'' is inhabited by an ancient, sentient conciousness with a glib sense of humor. It frequently falls silent for long stretches of time, but scarcely fails to mock Racath's failures (especially regarding his excuses surrounding not pursuing a relationship with Nelle) whenever the opportunity arises. The sword is well aware of its own usefulness and magical properties - indeed, it is actually capable of shaping magic on its own, enabling Racath to perform feats like [[FlashStep "the Red Surge"]] - and is frequently smug or arrogant about its own importance. For Racath this makes the BlessedWithSuck issue especially prominent.

* ''Literature/RumoAndHisMiraculousAdventures''. Rumo gets a sword that talks to him, but he is the only one who can hear it. The problem: The two-bladed "sword" (more the size of a pig-sticker) actually contains two personalities. One is a very talkative and mostly ineffective coward (who talked Rumo in taking the sword), the other one a blood-thirsty, single-minded warrior (who can sulk when denied a fight). Rumo actually threatens to abandon the sword should it not stop talking.

* The Star Dragon Sword from the ''{{Suikoden}}'' series. It ''tries'' to come off as ancient and all-knowing, but since the only person who can wield it is the resident BoisterousBruiser, they both end up snarking to each other ''constantly''.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', Link's sword is inhabited by a spirit named Fi, which manifests itself in the form of a young girl. She frequently gives Link advice on how to proceed, and basically serves as his ExpositionFairy. [[spoiler:Ghirahim is later revealed to be Demise's own talking weapon as well.]]

* The ''MuppetBabies'' acted out a fantasy RagsToRiches story where Piggy had to go on a quest to find a "Singing Sword", which never shut up until she shoved a sock in its mouth... and then wouldn't sing until she told it ''what song'' to sing.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/DesolateEra'': Talking weapons and treasures abound. Upon reaching a certain level of power, all treasures will generate a talking spirit. These spirits can even eventually [[spoiler: cultivate on their own and leave the weapon they once inhabited, becoming truly independent.]]

* Nightblood in ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'' is a sword that not only speaks (telepathically) nearly constantly, but is also something of a DeadpanSnarker. He also reads minds and seems to think any thought he picks up was directed at him.

He also reads minds and seems to think any thought he picks up was directed at him. It has an unusual personality and something of a BlueAndOrangeMorality, because it was made to fight evil but its creator didn't consider that an inanimate object has at best a vague sense of right and wrong.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': The [[spoiler:living Shardblades, since they are actually a form that the Radiant's spren companion can assume. The dead Shards as well]], though it's not so much ''talking'' as ''screaming in unspeakable agony''.
