** ''VideoGame/TalesOfZestiria'' has a unique twist on it; while Leilah uses paper (that she [[PlayingWithFire sets on fire]]), [[DishingOutDirt Edna]] uses a parasol, and [[BlowYouAway Dezel and Zaveid]] use pendulums, this is actually ''normal'' for seraphs like them. Their weapons represent the element they are strong over (fire, earth, and wind respectively), which means [[MakingASplash Mikleo]] is unusual for using a MagicStaff instead of something representing water. He's doing it the '''hard''' way compared to the rest...and apparently because he's [[HeightAngst short]] compared to his ChildhoodFriend Sorey.

** Peacock is a cartoon-obsessed [[RealityWarper]] that throws pretty much everything at her enemies. Especially her [[ShadowofImpendingDoom Shadow of Impending Doom]] move, which makes use of: A bowling ball, a teacup, a sandbag, a fish, a flower pot, a shoe, a bottle, a sentient anvil and weight, a tv, the head of another character, a safe, an elephant, a piano, a fridge, an elephant, a steamroller, a barrage of spiked balls, and of course: the [[KitchenSinkIncluded kitchen sink]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'': There are eight weapons in game (nine, counting a [[KillThemAll Genocide Route-only]] upgrade to one of them), most of them very improbable. [[KnifeNut Worn Dagger, Real Knife]]? Makes sense. Stick? Can do. Toy Knife? Tough Glove? Ballet Shoes? [[ThrowTheBookAtThem Torn Notebook?]] [[FryingPanOfDoom Burnt Pan?]] Special mention goes to Empty Gun. While the game never states that if it's a real gun or just a toy, it's explictly [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin empty]] - meaning that the player character [[PistolWhip pistol-whips]] [[ImprobableUseOfAWeapon their enemies with it.]] [[JustifiedTrope It should be noted though that the monsters in the game are stated to be vulnerable to killing intent - meaning that even something completely ridiculous can be used to hurt them if their attacker wants it enough.]]
** The game has not only imprbable weapons, but also improbable armors (Bandage, Faded Ribbon, Manly Bandana, Old Tutu, Cloudy Glasses, Stained Appron, Cowboy Hat, Heart Locket, Locket and [[BribingYourWayToVictory Temmie Armor]]) - though a piece of flavor text regarding Faded Ribbon ("''If you're cuter, monsters won't hit you as hard.''") seems to imply they're less of actual armor and more of defence-increasing StatSticks.

* ''WWFNoMercy'' included a lot of the already used improbable weapons already mentioned in the ProfessionalWrestling section. It also included weapons improbable for even the wrestling industry's standards, such as a giant plastic block of cheese and a huge copy of Wrestling/TheRock's book ''The Rock Says''.

** The ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' spinoff ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' also has some rather odd choices of weapons for some characters, though the majority use said weapon to focus their elemental abilities or use them to summon helpers. These include Link (one of his weapons is a spinner), Sheik (a harp), Lana (a book), Zelda (a conductor's baton), Agitha (a parasol), Linkle (winged boots), Skull Kid (an ocarina), King Daphnes (a sail), Medli (a harp), Marin (a bell), and Yuga (a picture frame). But none of them compare to [[AmericansHateTingle Tingle]], whose weapon is a balloon, but in battle also uses folded maps, bags of rupees and statues of himself. And compared to the other character, none of these are magical in nature.

** From the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' series of games, Mario is armed with a jump attack [[FridgeLogic (which is pretty weird when you think about it;]] [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim why not just punch them like in Mario 64?)]] and his hammer, which are relatively normal. Some of his companions, though...Bow's strongest attack is to slap the enemy silly with a fan, Sushie spits water, and it's a plot point in the second game that [[HelloInsertNameHere your Yoshi companion]] has an attack that [[ThrowTheMookAtThem spits an enemy into another enemy]]. Some of the enemies are pretty crazy, too; over the course of the games, Mario risks being suffocated by clouds, being shot by ''an [[AbnormalAmmo audience cannon]]'', having a Pokey's body sections thrown at him, and being completely destroyed by ''a [[MetalSlime flower's]] singing voice''.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'' somehow manages to take this to new extremes with its seasonal variant characters. Highlights include: [[EdibleBludgeon a carrot lance]]; magical eggs; a magical bouquet; seashell shuriken; a watermelon on a stick functioning as an axe; a bow made out of sweets, ''[[EdibleAmmunition shooting]]'' sweets; a beach floatie also somehow functioning as an axe; and ''[[ProducePelting a tome that summons tomatoes from the sky]]''.
