Compare BreakableWeapons, where this is a gameplay mechanic instead of a plot event. Contrast LikeCannotCutLike. A weapon with DetachableBlades can simply replace the blade and becomes usable again.

** Optimus gets one of his blades broken again, also by Megatron, in the lead-up to the first season finale. This time, however, it stays broken for the following ''six episodes'', as he's too busy dealing with crises or [[spoiler: having amnesia]] to get it fixed.

* The Star Saber in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' was destroyed by Megatron the episode after it was introduced. Given that in its introduction it [[StoryBreakerPower sliced a mountain in half]], this outcome was not especially surprising.

The Star Saber in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' was destroyed by Megatron the episode after it was introduced. Given that in its introduction it [[StoryBreakerPower sliced a mountain in half]], this outcome was not especially surprising. It's reforged later, but spends most of the following season out of the heroes' hands.

*** It had been attempted a number of times with the Fujiyama Tiger Breaker, but any attempt before Miracle 3 had failed or backfired horribly on the opponent due [[GenreSavvy Tiger Mask seeing it coming and coming up with variations to neutralize any counter]]. Also, this move was used again, because, as said above, only Miracle 3 could counter it.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the World Eater Primarch Angron went through several weapons in his lifetime. However, he defies the emotional connotations of the trope by [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness discarding them without a second thought]] and simply [[DiscardAndDraw getting new weapons]]. This is because of the gladiator traditions of his homeworld that treated broken weapons as bad luck. One of the World Eaters, Kharn, defied Angron's principles by retrieving one of the Primarch's discarded and broken twin chain axes, Gorechild, [[ReforgedBlade and had it repaired for his own use]]. Gorechild's twin Gorefather remains lost and broken.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' knows a technique called "The Tremendous Horse-Cut" that destroys an opponent's weapon. He's only used it once, against [[EnsembleDarkHorse The Scotsman]] - whose sword was also magical and [[LikeCannotCutLike thus resisted the attack]].

knows a technique called "The Tremendous Horse-Cut" that destroys an opponent's weapon. He's only used it once, against [[EnsembleDarkHorse The Scotsman]] - whose sword was also magical and [[LikeCannotCutLike thus resisted the attack]]. [[spoiler:Played straight in Season 5 when Aku blasts the aged Scotsman with his EyeBeams, reducing him to ash and shattering his sword. Fortunately, the Celtic magic in the sword brings the Scotsman back as a ghost.]]
** In Season 5, Jack's futuristic weapons and armor are all destroyed by the Daughters of Aku in the second episode.

** The '''Master Sword''' of all things in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' is gimped in gameplay terms; it can only draw out its full power around manifestations of Malice and can only do so for so long before it is forced to recharge. It's also this in story as well: [[spoiler:pre-Calamity Link fought with it for far longer than it was expected to handle against Calamity Ganon and its horde of possessed Guardians, to the point where parts of it rusted and chipped from all the nonstop combat, and while the blade looks good as new in the present day, its inability to hold a charge indicates that it still hadn't repaired itself completely.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower'': In "The Stone in the Sword", the jewel in the hilt of Princess Adora's sword gets cracked by an attack, which depowered the sword and prevented her from transforming into She-Ra. She had to pass several tests to get it repaired.
