* In the WhateleyUniverse, Caitlin Bardue is The Artificer, a [[{{Golem}} construct]] magically designed to be The UltimateBlacksmith. Things that a high-end mage would need months to make, she can make overnight with the right stuff. As for accessibility, she lives in one of the dorms at Whateley Academy, so she's easy to get to.

* Hephaestus in ''ThaliasMusings''. His son Eros inherited some of his skill, but since Eros' biological father is probably either Ares or Hermes, it's likely more nurture than nature.

* Dagna in ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition'' may have chosen to study magic as an artificer and rune crafter, but she's still a former member of the Dwarven Smith Caste. Smithing is in her blood and it shows; she is able to forge Masterwork equipment ''and'' craft runes for you. Much to the chagrin of Haven's former blacksmith Herritt, who finds himself OvershadowedByAwesome. And while she isn't able to [[ReforgedBlade reforge]] a LegendaryWeapon like a typical Ultimate Blacksmith when given the pieces, she is able to use them as inspiration to forge a new sword. Played with in that she isn't the best master smith or best master enchanter, but she is the world's only expert on the interactions between the two fields and the scientific examination of magic in general.

** The the dwarfs (or dark elves) Sindri and Brokkr. To win a bet with Loki, they forge three magical treasures, a living, golden boar for Freyr, a gold ring that duplicates itself every nine nights for Odin, and for Thor, his hammer Mjölnir. And this is despite Loki sabotaging every attempt. Two of the treasures turned out fine, but Mjölnir's handle was too short thanks to Loki. Sindri crafted Thor's iron gloves so he could safely wield the hammer anyway.

** The sons of Ivaldi were also very talented smiths. In fact, the bet Loki made with Sindri and Brokkr was over whether or not they could create anything as good as the sons of Ivaldi's work. The sons of Ivaldi created Sif's replacement golden hair (which was why Loki was there in the first place since he had to replace the hair he cut off as a prank) and threw in Skidbladnir, the greatest of all ships which could be folded up like a cloth to fit in one's pocket for Freyr, and Gungnir, the deadliest of all spears which always hit its target for Odin.

* [[OurTitansAreDifferent Autochthon]] [[MechanicalLifeform the Great Maker]] of ''{{Exalted}}'' has been implied to embody this concept as part of his conceptual nature; among his more impresssive accomplishments, he invented the titular Exalted, plus a whole mess of other artifacts which allowed them to take down his fellow [[JerkassGods Primordials.]] Among one of the most legendary is the plot-changing level artifact called the Eye of Autochthon (which may be [[BodyToJewel literally what it says]]) which can [[RealityWarper pretty much do anything imaginable]] [[GameBreaker provided it's on the scale of a castle or bigger.]]

* In ''Literature/TheBalancedSword'', the Spiritsmith has practiced his craft for thousands of years, studied under masters of every form of weapon and armor making in the world, and produces work so good that even the gods themselves offer him commissions. When he's not needed elsewhere, he makes his home at the top of a tall mountain in a forbidding mountain range, and even if a person can find out which mountain there are a bunch of rules about when you can climb it and what equipment you're allowed to use to make sure the only people who make it to his doorstep are ones who are worth his time.

The Ultimate Blacksmith is the only person in the world that can [[ElementalCrafting turn that ingot]] of [[AppliedPhlebotinum Phlebotinum]] into the InfinityPlusOneSword. Usually lives in a cave in a mountain on the edge of the world. The bottom edge. Guarded by a dragon with eight heads and twelve necks. Sometimes he is not guarded, hidden or the likes, but instead he has sworn never again to forge an instrument of bloodshed. In this case he must be persuaded to do so, which often turns out to be more complicated than the little dragon-problem. If persuaded, he will probably feature as the star of a ForgingScene.

* Dennis, Handyman of the Gods, fulfils the same function in ''Discworld/TheLastHero''. He is seen at his forge repairing the spaceship that brought the adventurers to Dunmanidestin. It is explicitly said that every habitat of Gods gets its resident god of Making and Maintaining Things, as every house needs someone who can do basic repairs, hang doors, fix the roof, plaster a wall, shoe the horses of the Chariot of the Sun, et c, as without them it would all slump into wreckage and disrepair.
