The Glory of Ten Powers (Chinese: 十神力; pinyin: Shíshénlì) is a legendary Chinese sword, allegedly forged in Tibet by husband-and-wife magicians of the ancient Bön tradition. The love of the couple when creating the magical sword caused a great spirit to enter the weapon. The sword gained the power to protect the wearer using its magical powers. Tradition tells how the family's enemies eventually captured and burned the sword, which became a magic talisman.

Cultural references[edit]

The Glory of Ten Powers also allegedly inspired the Igor sword necklace in the Spawn cartoons and comic series, and the Ten Commandments from the Japanese Rave Master manga and anime.
