* Film/{{Excalibur}} is broken in the film of the same title when Arthur uses it for an unjust purpose -- namely, killing Lancelot to satisfy his ego. When he realises the depth of his error, the knight is revived and his sword returned to him in one piece by the Lady of the Lake. This sequence was added so that Arthur could receive Excalibur from the Lady of the Lake as well as pull it from the stone earlier in the film.

** In ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' Darth Maul's [[DoubleWeapon double-bladed lightsaber]] is cut in half by a swift undercut from Obi-Wan, and Maul is forced to fight with the working half. [[spoiler:In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' and ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' Maul continues to use the bifurcated weapon, after his own bisection.]]
** In ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'', Anakin's lightsaber is destroyed and he's unarmed until another Jedi [[GiveMeASword gives him a new one.]] He also loses one saber while DualWielding against Dooku.
** In ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' Luke loses his father's lightsaber ([[AnArmAndALeg as well as his hand]]) while fighting Darth Vader. Luckily, by ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' he's built another one, and has gotten an artificial hand to match. This isn't a completely straight example, as the lightsaber simply falls down a chasm rather than being destroyed [[spoiler:(indeed, ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' has the weapon resurface after a matter of decades)]], but the symbolism is still intact due to the fact that Luke had pretty much lost his father's lightsaber for good [[spoiler:at first]].
* In ''Film/TheScorpionKing'', Balthazar and Mathayus' first sword clash shatters both their weapons. They just resort to fisticuffs.
* In ''Film/ThePunisher2004'', the bad guys send a Russian mercenary to beat up and kill Frank Castle. After taken quite a beating, Frank tries to grab his trusty revolver, only to have it smashed by the Russian's hammer. The look on Frank's face when he sees the bent barrel is priceless.

The whole scene has slightly creepy Oedipal overtones.



* In C.S. Goto's ''Literature/BloodRavens'' trilogy, Rhamah's [[NamedWeapons Vairocanum]].

But when the EldritchAbomination summoned by Thoth-Amon comes calling for the leader of the assassins, the broken sword proves to be the only thing that can kill it because of the phoenix mark that Epemitreus placed upon the weapon.
* At the end of ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', Susannah, having crossed over into another dimesion to live out a normal life, discovers that one of Roland's revolvers has become completely unusable as a result. Roland abandons the other pistol in order to gain entry to the titular tower.

Hero Gregor Eisenhorn's sword Barbarister shatters during his duel with BigBad Quixos. Rather than being played for emasculation imagery, this actually allows Eisenhorn to win, as the sword shatters while Quixos was blocking a thrust, allowing the half remaining in Eisenhorn's hand to impale Quixos through the heart -- had the blade not shattered, the blow would have been deflected and the duel continued.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'' has Puss in Boots adamantly refusing to give up in battle against the all-powerful Bloodwolf even though his attacks have no effect on him at all. It is only when Puss lands a clean hit that does nothing but shatter his rapier that Puss begins to pass into the DespairEventHorizon.
* In the first season finale for ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', Loki shatters ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's shield using [[spoiler:the Odinforce]]. Cap is later shown to have collected the pieces and it takes more than half a season for it to finally get fixed by Wakandan scientists, the only people who know how to deal with [[{{Unobtainium}} vibranium]] and its alloys. The shield is briefly replaced by a holographic version designed and built by Iron Man, although [[spoiler:it turns out that Cap was in fact a Skrull during the entire time the holo-shield was used, and the real Cap much prefers the original.]]



* Midway through Dinobot's final battle in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', his sword and fan-bladed shield are shattered, the first hint that this won't end like any other battle so far. To add insult to injury, said weapons were formed out of his beast-mode's tail, which would make it impossible for him to transform.
* In ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', this happens a few times to Ulrich's katana, but being a virtual weapon it is intact on his next virtualization. Most notable is in "The Pretender", where Frelions blast the sword with their lasers, higher and higher, until it disintegrates. Ulrich still manages to destroy them barehanded or [[ImprovisedWeapon with a shard of stone]].
* The poor [[CoolCar Ecto-1]] gets wrecked by a weather controlling ghost in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'', prompting MrFixit Roland to declare ItsPersonal, since he had spent all day cleaning and maintaining the thing.
* ''WesternAnimation/GerryAndersonsNewCaptainScarlet'': Spectrum write off a ''lot'' of [[AwesomePersonnelCarrier Rhinos]] and White Falcon interceptors, but on one occasion this trope kicks off the whole plot of an episode; Captain Blue accidentally trashed some guy's Harley while pursuing a Mysteron agent, and the guy retaliated by stealing the [[CoolBike Spectrum Raid Bike]] that Captain Ochre had ridden to the scene. Colonel White was ''not'' pleased when he found out she'd forgotten to set the immobiliser.



* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Cyborg's car is destroyed in what seems like all of its appearances.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats1985'', the Sword of Omens is first broken when it is accidentally used to attack a fellow Thundercat; repairing it is said to be nearly impossible, and indeed proves to be nearly so. It took bribing a villain to reforge it, and they still had to escape him with the sword afterward. Much later, the sword is broken again in the introduction of new villain Tug-Mug, whose life on a moon with high gravity has given him tremendous strength. This occurrence slightly twists the trope, as the sword is promptly repaired by nearly-as-new hero Ben-Gali, demonstrating his own impressive skills as a blacksmith, which means the heroes now have the means to make repairs regularly.

*A very, very common inversion for the ActualPacifist four in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', in that they take every opportunity to destroy the weapons, and sometimes the armor, of their opponents. If the weapons are unbreakable, then Paul [[SuperStrength hammers them deep into the ground]]. Which does not endear them to anyone.

* Happens dramatically to Andromeda Shun in ''Manga/SaintSeiya''. When Pisces Aphrodite destroys the [[EpicFlail Andromeda Chain]], Shun is left with no other choice than to [[IAmNotLeftHanded unleash the Nebula Storm]]. This is a serious moment given its due gravitas, as the Chain was Shun's WeaponOfChoice and [[EmpathicWeapon a companion]] at times. [[FridgeLogic The strange thing is]] that the Chain had been broken dozens upon dozens of times before, and it had merely regenerated from its fragments every time...

Although this is sometimes a [[MerchandiseDriven cheap and inexplicable device]] to show off a [[SoLastSeason new transformation]], more often the hero is [[FreudWasRight figuratively neutered]], and has to deal with the emotional aftermath. Even if he has a buddy who can fix it up, that won't be as important as him coming to grips with either his reasons for fighting or just learning not to be such a clod about it. If this is a videogame, it's by far the easiest way to REALLY [[PlayerPunch piss off the player]] along with their virtual avatar.

** Since at least ''Series/ChikyuuSentaiFiveman'', it's very common for the a gattai robo's sword to be broken once a season. In those without organic creatures substituting for actual mecha, having a gattai robo losing an arm might also qualify.

to:

**''Series/HikariSentaiMaskman'' has the Shot Bomber, the team cannon {{BFG}} used for the small-size FinishingMove, trashed. This puts the team in dire straits indeed. It is eventually replaced with the Jet Cannon.

Added DiffLines:

**Due to StockFootage, a lot of the sentai examples go for their respective PR series. Most notably, Deker's story is different from Juzo's so ''why'' his sword breaking is a huge plot point turns out to be very different when everything is revealed.

** Kenshin slices Sanosuke's [[{{BFS}} Zanbato]] in half. Afterwards, Sanosuke puts it away and fights with his fists for the rest of the series. During the Jinchu Arc, Sanosuke wields the Zanbato, now held together with metal staples, again, but it shatters after he uses it to knock away a cannonball.



* This appears to be [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Saionji's]] fate in ''UndocumentedFeatures''. First, when Kaitlyn Hutchins attacks him with the [[SpamAttack Hyakken no Arashi]], his blade breaks. Then after becoming her apprentice, he fights [[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth Lafarga]], performs the Hyakken no Arashi himself, and his blade breaks after he's done. A while after that, he fights [[Franchise/StarWars Sith Lord]] [[Series/BabylonFive Psi Cop]] Roger Tremayne, and gets his sword cut in half by his lightsaber. Is it any wonder after this record that he claimed Tremayne's lightsaber for himself?
