A character has been using one weapon for most of a film/book/series. Usually he is portrayed as a novice, very much still in training, and likely to lose a lot of his fights. Then, about 3/4 of the way through, he gets/makes a new sword, and suddenly emerges as a fully fledged warrior.

Examples:

The Dante Valentine series by Lilith Saint Crow has this happen to the title character in book 2 of 5.

Probably most famous in Star Wars, Return of the Jedi, where Luke has made a new Lightsaber to replace the one he lost. Behold, he is now a Jedi.
