* 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.

* Hattori Hanzo from ''Film/KillBill'' is the greatest Japanese swordsmith in the world, to the extent that criminals and assassins would consider $1 million a reasonable price for a katana made by him. Eventually he was tormented that his swords were used to kill people and promised God that he would stop making them, and since then has lived in Okinawa running a restaurant. Since the Bride needs one of his weapons to take on Bill and the Deadly Vipers for her RoaringRampageOfRevenge, she goes there and convinces him to break his vow in order to make one last sword. The result is a weapon that under the right conditions can cut another sword in half: "I can tell you with no ego this is my finest sword. If on your journey, should you encounter God, God will be cut."

* 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.

* 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.]]
