* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'', from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path Of Radiance]]'' onwards, has the [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Forge Forge]] game mechanic where some characters can become blacksmiths and forge all kinds of pre-existing weapons (swords, knives, axes, lances, bows, magic tomes, etc.) into stronger versions:
** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius The Tellius games]] have Daniel from the Merchant Convoy.
** The remakes of the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemArchanea Archanea games]] and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' have NPC's (and in Awakening's case, the Merchant Annas who show up randomly) that double as merchants and blacksmiths.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', ''anyone'' in the playable cast save for the Avatar and Lilith can take up the blacksmith role if the Avatar has a Smithy building in My Castle, goes in there and has not only weapons to spare, but some specific type of ore. (i.e., a Nohrian sword and some rubies, a Hoshidan katana and pearls, etc.)
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', some towns have NPC's that will forge weapons in exchange for Silver and Gold marks.

* Two major characters, and several minor ones, in L.E. Modessit's ''Literature/TheSagaOfRecluce'' practice blacksmithing as their profession. Not just weapons, but tools and various other odds and ends. One of the most [[ShownTheirWork realistic depictions of the craft]] in fiction.

* John Henry Irons, a.k.a. {{Steel}} from the DC Universe often invokes blacksmithing in addition to his folkloric image (see his first and middle names). He is notable for hand-forging the plating of most of his PoweredArmor.

** Gendry was a smith in training before being sold to the Night's Watch, and his craft comes in useful as he makes his way across wartorn Westeros, as it makes him a valuable prisoner when taken to Harrenhal and he's later able to assist the Brotherhood Without Banners with their weapons. He mentions he was an armorer's apprentice specifically rather than an ordinary blacksmith, so his ability to forge weapons and armour for various characters is more realistic than most versions of this trope. [[spoiler: He's also a perfect example of the secret legacy variant mentioned above.]]
