* 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 is 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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', Solus Prime, one of the Original Thirteen Primes, was the greatest smith/inventor in Transformer history. Her trademark tool, the Forge of Solus Prime, was a massive {{Magitek}} hammer capable of forging just about anything. Simply wielding it will turn a Prime into an Ultimate Blacksmith. [[spoiler:Megatron, after transplanting the arm of a dead Prime onto his own, used it to forge the Dark Star Saber, which was powerful enough to ''shatter'' the original Star Saber. Optimus later uses the Forge to upgrade the Autobots' Ground Bridge into a Space Bridge and reforge the Star Saber. However it is limited by the individuals skill level. When asked if he simply forge a new copy of the Macguffin the Decepticon's had stole, Optimus laments that he doesn't possess the skill to do so, despite having just upgraded the bridge and repaired the saber, implying that the Macguffin in question was unimaginably complex.]]

* VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising there's Dyntos, the god of the forge. He has created nearly every weapon that Pit uses in-game, including the Three Sacred Treasures and the new Great Sacred Treasure. He can create armies and even entire landscapes indistinguishable from the originals in the blink of an eye. With his powers, he is said to be able to conquer anyone he wishes. He isn't interested in war, however.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' had one for the Pink Tails / Adamantine equipment. ** Make that two, in the DS remake: the nameless Tail Guy, who gives you trinkets for bringing him tails [[RandomlyDrops (which drop from monsters at an absolutely disgusting rate)]], including Adamant Armor and Onion Swords, and the nugget of [[GreenRocks adamantite]] he gives you for bringing him the Rat Tail. You take the adamantite to Kokkol (who lives at the edge of the underworld, and yes, there are dragons where he hangs around), and a few plot events later, your dear old SwordOfPlotAdvancement has become the [[InfinityMinusOneSword Excalibur]]. * ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' had one, in the form of Hades, situated in the FinalDungeon, and he's actually a GOD, and you have to beat him up. ** And he is also ''hidden'' somewhat offscreen nicely, so you could easily skip him without a guide if you're not rummaging every single corner. * A dwarf makes a powerful sword in some of the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games.

* Gerolt from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' takes up the mantle of the Relic Weapon maker. He's, simply put, a lazy drunkard who swears like a sailor and sends you run errands in every single corner of the world just to get you off his back for a couple of minutes, but he's also the best craftsman the world has ever known, no joke. Just to give you an example of how good he is, bring him some items and a worn-out armor, put them in his furnace and '''the armor will travel back in time''' until when it was pristine.

* Similarly Watts in several of the ''VideoGame/WorldOfMana'' games. He forges and upgrades the many types of weapons SD is known for. ** And arguably the player character himself in ''VideoGame/LegendOfMana''. With the right materials, you can make just about any kind of equipment imaginable, from joke items like a [[CherryTapping cotton sword]] to [[GameBreaker weapons powerful enough to one-shot pretty much everything.]]

** Similarly, ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' had two alternate universe versions of their ultimate blacksmith, Zappa, [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters one of whom can join your party]]. If you bring playable-Zappa to talk with NPC-Zappa, they'll combine forces and figure out how to forge the rainbow shell into powerful weapons, most of which are [[InfinityPlusOneSword infinity-plus-one swords]]. *** ''"Ye be me!"'' * In the ''{{Suikoden}}'' series, there's always an Ultimate Blacksmith for you to recruit. He's always the only one capable of upgrading weapons to the max level. For the most part, he starts out somewhat worse, but gets better as you bring him better hammers... and of course, the Golden Hammer is the best one. Somehow.

*** ...he still wields a Gold Hammer, though.

* Cromwell in ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'', Cespenar in ''VideoGame/ThroneOfBhaal''. They're both quite accessible, though -- it's only the "forge the infinity plus one items" part that fits. ** Accessible to the player's party, that is. Anybody else that wants to make use of Cespenar's services had better learn how to travel to a demonic pocket dimension constructed and held together solely by the main character's will. *** Furthermore, Cespenar answers to nobody but the protagonist of the story. But the actual UltimateBlacksmith of the game is probably ''Kerrick the Smith''.

** Algernon from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' blows every other tinkerer in the game out of the water. He'll perform just about any upgrade in the game--Mega Power Fists, Turbo Plasma Rifles, improved flamer fuel, and more--for ''zero'' cost, and he's available in one of the biggest towns in the game, guarded by two dogs who won't attack. Even better, his scripting gives automatically fills the magazine of any gun you give him to upgrade. *** Kind of subverted in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''; there are no blacksmiths, but some merchants will offer to repair your weapons and armor in exchange for [[CallAHitPointASmeerp bottle caps]], Fallout's currency. But no merchant have a perfect 100 repair skill. Only ''you'', the player, can have that through leveling, making you the best repairman in the state. *** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', specifically ''Honest Hearts'', introduces the New Canaanites. Mormons who are known for their high quality .45 caliber weapons, especially their .45 Auto Pistols (M1911A1). This is actually a TruthInTelevision as Browning basically created most modern firearms for the Mormon community to defend themselves. They just take it to PlanetOfHats levels in New Vegas.

* Godo in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', the expert Blacksmith who makes Guts' weapons lives in the middle of nowhere. Guts appears to be his only customer. ** It should be noted that Godo had a small mine nearby, and his protege and adoptive daughter were forced to move away after the mine was collapsed during a fight between Guts and Zodd.

* Godo in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', the expert Blacksmith blacksmith who makes Guts' weapons weapons, lives in the middle of nowhere. Guts nowhere, although this is {{justified}}: his hut is convenient to old mine that was once the home of elves. He still appears to be his only customer. ** It should be noted highly sought-after, as a merchant comes racing to him with the news that Godo had a small mine nearby, the campaign to eradicate [[spoiler: the Hawks]] requires fresh supplies of arms and his protege armor. Godo's greatest accomplishment may be the Dragonslayer sword, which he forged in response to an unidentified king's challenge to craft a sword that could [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin slay a dragon]]. It [[NonIndicativeName hasn't killed any dragons yet]], but given how many huge, overpowered demons and adoptive daughter were forced to move away after the mine was collapsed during a fight between Guts other creatures it ''has'' killed, there's not much question that it ''could'', but it's so large and Zodd.heavy that no one has been shown to successfully wield it but Guts.

* Uprox Screl, who forged TheSwordOfShannara, and subsequently retires and becomes the ancestor of Panamon Creel. * Daja and her teacher Frostpine from Literature/CircleOfMagic. Both of them have power over metal, fire and smithing, and can create truly amazing pieces of work. Daja in particular produces some impressive stuff out of the living brass growing on her arm. * Hank Rearden from AtlasShrugged is this trope, transplanted into the context of a modern industrial steel industry. His abilities with steel and the new alloys he invents are just as great as the talents of the medieval-fantasy Ultimate Blacksmith. * Vulcan in the ''Series/BookOfSwords'' series, who made the twelve eponymous swords, each a perfectly made sword with incredibly powerful magical abilities. Played with, perhaps, in that he could only do it once and came to forget how he did it.

* In ''{{Preacher}}'' the Angel of Death wants to give up his job. When he finds a worthy soul, he melts down his Angelic Sword of Death and allows {{Satan}} to forge it into a pair of Colt revolvers. The result is a pair of pistols which never run out of ammo, never miss, and never fail to kill. The new Angel of Death, now named the Saint of Killers, immediately shoots the Devil in the head and kills him. [[spoiler: He later shoots and kills {{God}}.]]
