* Vulkan, the primarch of the Salamanders in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' was raised as a blacksmith on his home planet, and his chapter has kept this tradition alive in the millennia since. In addition to forging and maintaining their own gear, The Salamanders also tend to favor [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers, meltaguns]], and [[DropTheHammer energized hammers]] in combat.
** This has practical applications to their role as defenders of humanity as well; they are the only chapter able (and [[ThePaladin willing]]) to help rebuild essential infrastructure when the fighting is over.
** To a lesser extent there is (or rather ''was'') Ferrus Manus of the Iron Hands who forwent hammers and used his fists (covered in some sort of living metal) in his forging. And for the Heretics there was Fulgrim, who challenged Ferrus to a forging competition to see who could make the better weapon. In the end they called it a draw, though Fulgrim went on to use the sword Ferrus made [[spoiler:to cut off Ferrus' own head in a duel.]]

** [[AllThereInTheManual Side material]] reveals that Mu isn't actually supposed to be a Clothsmith, as the job would fall to the Sculptor Saint and the Caelum Saint, whose Cloths include the appropriate tools. Currently there is no Caelum Saint, so Mu is possession of the Cloth and uses its tools for the job (and may be training his little brother for it), while the Sculptor Saint is never seen.

* Modern blacksmithing took a huge leap in popularity with the {{Film/LordOfTheRings]], where the newfound addition of SpecialFeatures (more so with the ExtendedEditions) showed how detailed and authentic the production went into recreating the weaponry of the movie. From the hero swords, the villain weapons, the hand made chainmail, the added shown attention influenced many fans into going into the craft.

* On the Literature/{{Discworld}}, there's Jason Ogg, son of Nanny Ogg, who's so good at his craft that he's the only one [[AC:Death]] trusts to shoe his horse. The downside is, well, he has to shoe Death's horse.
** He also shoes [[spoiler: a unicorn. He has to use silver shoes and nails, and remarks that they won't last very long.]]
** On the other hand, the reward for being the best blacksmith in the world [[ShapedLikeItself is being the best blacksmith in the world.]] As in, being the best obligates you to ''always'' be the best. If someone brings him something and asks for it to be shoed, Jason must shoe it. He's even put shoes on an ant that some friends brought to him as a joke.
** Eskarina Smith's father in ''Discworld/EqualRites'' was a blacksmith
** Possibly Galder Weatherwax.
