** Fate had a version symbolic of her mental state near the end of the first season when she dropped her weapon in shock of [[spoiler: [[TomatoInTheMirror finding out her]] [[CloningBlues true nature]]]] and, combined with the damage it had recieved from her battle against Nanoha, it shattered upon hitting the ground. It remained that way until she recovered from her HeroicBSOD and jump-started it's self-repair function.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', after Lewa tries to intimidate the Piraka Reidak with a tale of how the Toa had defeated the dreaded Rahkshi; Rediak grabs one of Lewa's Air Katana and snaps it over his knee. "Rahkshi? I pick my teeth with Rahkshi." The defeated Toa were then stripped of their weapons and imprisoned, further humiliated by being made slaves. After being rescued, a villager offered to make a new Air Katana.

* A twofer from the ''DresdenFiles'' novels: in ''[[WhamEpisode Changes]]'', a vampire assassin destroys Harry's [[TheAllegedCar cherished car]], the Blue Beetle, as well as his staff (which happened to be in the trunk). Even several books later, he's metaphysically hamstrung by the loss, since he hasn't had time to build a new staff, and is much less effective at controlled, long-distance magic as a result.
** Then, in ''[[Literature/SkinGame]]'', ''Fidelacchius'', the Sword of Faith, is broken by Nicodemus when Murphy tries to use it in rage. [[spoiler:Butters manages to [[ReforgedBlade reforge]] it... into a [[LaserBlade Lightsaber]]. Thanks to his faith. In Franchise/StarWars.]]

* Nanoha's and Fate's wands cracking each other in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. In the second season (''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs''), both Nanoha and Fate have their weapons heavily damaged in separate duels against the new antagonists.
** Taken to a new level in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' when Subaru does this to herself right after her [[spoiler: RoboticReveal]] by pushing her device past the breaking point after her BerserkButton is pressed.
** Also in ''[=StrikerS=]'', Vita breaks Graf Eisen [[spoiler:trying to break through the shielding on the Saint Cradle's engine. However, Eisen's tip lodges in the engine after her last attack, eventually shattering the engine.]]

** And more recently in the ''[[Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaFORCE FORCE]]'' manga [[spoiler: Signum does this to Laevatein by trying to fight a new villain with heavy AntiMagic powers and a body tough enough to provoke the mighty Belkan sword to crack like a cookie; obviously, things do not end well for our beloved LadyOfWar]].

** The manga takes the concept and runs with it, giving the other characters their chance to shine as they daydream about taking over the entire series. After all, if Hamel's violin is destroyed, what's the point of the manga being called ''ViolinistOfHameln''? Better make way for ''The Adventures of Flute'' or ''Tron Bone Z''...

* Happens twice in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' during Clare's mission in Rabona. The Yoma Clare was ordered to hunt down first destroys the sword of a Human soldier, Galk, and then also smashes Clare's own knives. This to show how Human weapons are ineffective against Yoma and only the [[{{BFS}} Claymore swords]] that give the warriors like Clare their name are up to the task, especially because they're made of ThunderboltIron.

** Used again much later when [[spoiler: Haschwald snaps Tensa Zangetsu. Then it's revealed that ReforgedBlade is ''not'' an option for zanpakuto in bankai state. Ichigo has to work ''really'' hard to get a new bankai.]]

** Kallen's Radiant Wave Surger on her Guren is broken three times over the 2 seasons, once at the end of the first, once about a quarter into the second, and finally in the last episode. The first time, Suzaku is nearly beaten, but manages to get free and blast the arm off. The second time, the trope is played straight, showing off the power of Suzaku's new mech against Kallen. She got a replacement within 2 minutes, then gave back nearly as good as she got. Finally, the arm is lost in her final battle with Suzaku, but at that point it was meaningless.

* In ''VideoGame/ConanHyborianAge'', the quest's goal is initially to explore a dungeon to find a sword crafted in a superior metal. Said sword being found broken in two (the part with the handle and the lower part of the blade is usable as a dagger), the last objective is to reforge it, either as a one-handed sword or a greatsword.
