* The Like Likes in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series, monsters that look like a stack of pancakes and ''eat'' shields and tunics.
** There's also the [[{{BFS}} Giant's Knife]] from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', that can only take so much blunt trauma until it breaks, leaving you with a handle and some broken metal jutting out. Still works as a weapon, but does minimal damage. Interestingly the broken knife is a LethalJokeWeapon against [[ThatOneBoss Dark Link]] thanks to a GoodBadBug: He blocks as if he were defending against the full blade and the broken handle slips right past and lands a hit every time.
*** "So much blunt trauma" meaning 8 swings. Tops. [[spoiler:And that's only if you've bought ''at least'' SIX of them already.]]
** 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.]]

** The same episode introducing Bane also turns this trope into a ChekhovsGun. During their battle, Batman tosses a Batarang at Bane, who catches it and crushes it. Batman ends up using the crushed weapon to damage Bane's Venom Feed, causing him to have a major overload of the drug.

* In the ''Stormblood'' expansion of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', your fight with BigBad of this part of the storyline Zenos causes the katana he was using to shatter. Despite the fact that you lost, the game makes it ambiguous if it broke because you're becoming so much stronger or it broke because it couldn't handle Zenos' power.

** The start of the original Relic questline has you trying to hunt down a legendary blade, which has been taken. Once you retrieve it, the blacksmith notes how terrible of shape its in from its disuse and wrongful possession, forcing you into a quest to reforge it.
** There's a game mechanic where the character's gear and weapons all have a health meter of sorts. The more you use them, the lower the gear. Should they reach 0%, they "break" and their usefulness is cut down in half.

* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' has Kirito do this several times. The first time it happened, he intends to break a sword dropped by a rare monster with one he intends to purchase and instead [[TheWorfEffect breaks the one he intends to purchase on his monster drop]]. The second time, it's revealed that most players [[HowIsThatEvenPossible don't even know SAO's gameplay engine can do that]].

** In the "End of an Era" video, we watch as Louisoux's attempt to recapture Bahamut fails and the resulting backlash shatters the mage's staff. Minfilia keeps the wrecked remains in the Scions' base.

* Not actually a weapon, but a few of Franchise/SailorMoon's brooches have been destroyed or damaged in the line of duty

to:

* Not actually Franchise/SailorMoon and the Guardians had a weapon, but a few bad habit of Franchise/SailorMoon's brooches have been destroyed or damaged wrecking their gear in the line early days.
** In the manga, Sailor Moon loses her first tiara when it was used to bind Jadeite, who is incinerated by Sailor Mars' Fire Soul. She doesn't realize that it didn't come back until she transformed again later on and a new one suddenly appeared.
** In both the manga and ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', Sailor Moon overloads her first brooch destroying Queen Metalla. Queen Serenity gives her a new one. In the original anime, it was one
of dutyAli and An's monsters that causes it, with Queen Serenity using the Silver Crystal to create the new one.
** Also in the manga and ''Crystal'', the other Sailor Guardians overload their wands to help Sailor Moon against the Dark Kingdom. They get new ones when the next arc starts.
** In the anime, Sailor Mercury smashes her pocket computer over the head of one of the monsters that captured her before her death. It was whole once everything was said and done.
** In the ''Sailor Moon R'' movie, Fiore clamps down hard on Usagi's brooch, crushing it slightly and causing her to lose her uniform. Usagi later blows up the Silver Crystal in stopping a Colony Drop. Both are fixed up at the end.
** [[RuleOfThree For a hat trick with this sort of thing]], the manga and ''Crystal'' has Sailor Moon overload her second brooch and the Cutie Moon Rod stopping the Death Phantom. Neo-Queen Serenity gives her a new brooch and weapon. The anime instead has a new monster bite down on her brooch, draining it of its power.
