* 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.
