* Alabama in ''Film/TrueRomance''. She doesn't use graceful kicks, or fancy backflipping, or any other SheFu bullshit when she's struggling for her life against a brutal hit man three times her size. What she ''does'' use is a corkscrew, a porcelain bust of Elvis, shampoo in the eyes, a toilet tank lid, an AerosolFlamethrower, the corkscrew again, and five blasts from a shotgun.

** This is continued by Batman in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Batman [[ThouShaltNotKill won't kill]]…directly. But if he shoots a truck, and the truck explodes and you die, he's fine.

* The professional fighter "Mad Dog" in ''OngBak: The Thai Warrior'' was a particularly dramatic example of this, using absolutely everything that came to hand as a weapon, even ripping out electrical wires to attack his opponent.

* The title characters from ''TheBoondockSaints'' who actually kill a guy by ''dropping a porcelain toilet off a building'' so that it crushes him. The toilet was literally what Connor had handy (well, that and a pair of handcuffs with which the Russian mob dude in question had forced him to cuff himself to the toilet). Connor also landed right on the bad guy's buddy after dropping the toilet on the first bad guy. (ItMakesSenseInContext). Ignore any theories involving [[WildMassGuessing Huge Friggen Guoys]].

* ''Film/TheBourneSeries'''s Jason Bourne is a definite and obvious example - hitting foes with [[ImprovisedWeapon everything]] [[KitchenSinkIncluded almost literally including the kitchen sink]] [[note]]it was actually the bathroom sink[[/note]], preparing traps and ambushes MacGyver style in the heat of combat, and lulling foes into a false sense of security whenever possible (see his escape from the customs officials in the second movie).

* ''ComicBook/Superman'' gets a dose of this in ''Film/ManOfSteel'': he [[spoiler: smashes Zod's helmet in their fight, knowing that Zod will be overwhelmed when his helmet no longer filters his SuperSenses.]] He also [[spoiler: snaps Zod's neck at the end,]] when he has no other choice.
