** In the spin-off ActionAdventure game ''Redguard'', the hero Cyrus comes into possession of the Soul Sword, a [[EmpathicWeapon sentient longsword]] housing the soul of the Crown Prince of Hammerfell, Prince A'tor. It is able to move on its own accord [[spoiler:(which proves very useful in the game's climax)]] and A'tor is able to telepathically speak with the wielder of the blade.

* The Flaming Raging Poisoning Sword of Doom from Podcast/TheAdventureZoneBalance is just as rad as it sounds. [[spoiler: Which makes it even funnier that Taako never uses it after swindling it from Garfield the Deals Warlock. Then we get to see what it can [[Awesome/TheAdventureZoneBalance really]] do when Magnus gets to use it.]]

** To correct the tropers above me regarding the Ulfberhts, first let's correct the spelling. It's "U or V - L - F - B - E - R - H - T." Second, Ulfberhts come in three main groups. The ones that have the name, "+ULFBERH+T" are originals, made entirely out of crucible steel, with exception of the wrought iron inlays. The second group are also originals, these are spelled, "+ULFBERHT+". The final group are the fakes, with the inlay, "+UBRLFH+T". The ones with the incorrect spelling are made out of subpar material and are known for more fancy fittings, while the originals are made out of superior materials and aren't known for fancy fittings.

** Glamdring ('Foe Hammer'): this elven-blade was originally wielded by [[Literature/TheSilmarillion Turgon, the king of Gondolin]]; it was lost over the years, but was [[Literature/TheHobbit later rediscovered by Gandalf]]. Quite possibly, this was the weapon used to [[Literature/LordOfTheRings slay Durin's Bane, the Balrog in Moria]].

** The Nine Lives Stealer is pretty cool. It's a +2 sword with the potential to, if the player scores a critical hit (1/20 chance), instantly kill any enemy with less than 100 health. Once its 9 uses are spent, it's still a +2 sword. and if you use the Book of Exalted deeds, it may be redeemed.

* ''Film/YamatoTakeru'' has the Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi (see Myths & Religion below for more on that), which contains most of [[BigBad Tsukuyomi]]'s PhysicalGod powers, and the Sword of Karasai, which is embedded in stone in the underworld and can turn into what's basically a [[Franchise/StarWars lightsaber]] ([[StockSoundEffects complete with matching noises]]). The barbarian warlord Kumaso Takeru has a two-handed scimitar which, while merely a mundane weapon, also looks fairly impressive.

* The Saingeom(Four Tigers Sword) in Myth/KoreanMythology. Being forged in Tiger day's tiger hour, of Tiger year's Tiger month (plus, a metalsmith can only make one in his ''entire lifetime''), it has powerful positive(Yang) force that can ''destroy'' monsters and evil spirits. In one story, a scholar named Shin Heum(1566 1628) was plagued by evil spirits in his house, and the King presented Saingeom to his son to stop it. While his son was returning from the palace, the saingeom suddenly flew out of its scabbard and struck one of the columns in Shin Heums house, ''causing the blood to spurt out of it''. Shin Heum was not bothered by evil spirits since.
