* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' introduced a few "joke weapons" that were weaker than most weapons--the weakest axe was a ''ladle'', the weakest sword a tree branch, and the weakest lance a ''log''. ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Fates]]'', however, introduced quite a few more, not al of which were true "joke" weapons. Axe/Club users could attack with a Carp Streamer, a [[FryingPanOfDoom Frying Pan]], or a [[GardeningVarietyWeapon Hoe]] (which actually equals the weakest non-joke axes/clubs in power but with the added bonus of ignoring enemies' [[GeoEffects terrain bonuses]]; Lance/Naginata users have a Broom, a Stick, a Bamboo Pole, and a Pine Branch (the last of which is actually fairly powerful, but inaccurate); Sword/Katana users can attack with a Daikon Radish, an [[ParasolOfPain Umbrella or Parasol]], or a [[GrievousBottleyHarm Bottle]]; Knife/Shuriken users can attack with Chopsticks, Plates, Trays, Hair Pins, Votive Candles, Pebbles, and [[BaguetteBeatdown Stale Bread]], and one weapon that Bow/Yumi users can attack with is the [[{{Pun}} Violin Bow]] (along with the [[MusicalAssassin Harp Yumi]]).

* Not actually used as a weapon, per se, but [[MustHaveCaffeine Godot]] from ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Trials and Tribulations]]'' has been known to chuck his coffee mug at Phoenix's head with unerring accuracy; Maya refers to them as "coffee grenades".

** There's also the titular Painkiller, a gauntlet-weedwacker that can launch to create a laser or launch the blades as they spin. Later games carry their own ridiculous weapons such as the severed demon head and spinning "totally not the Painkiller" super-puzzle in ''Overdose''.

* ''PainKiller'' has a gun that shoots Shurikens and lightning. To quote Ben "Yahtzee" Crowshaw from WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation, "It could only be more awesome if it had tits and was on fire."
** Lets not forget the gun that shoots sharpened fenceposts that pin enemies to the wall, as well as grenades

** A fan mod allows you to wield a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3ZZrAZudKU# fire hydrant]].

** A fan mod allows you to wield a the same [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3ZZrAZudKU# fire hydrant]].hydrant]] Super Mutant Behemoths use.
** Speaking of which, Super Mutant Behemoths use a fire hydrant to bludgeon any poor sop who tries to fight back. The hydrant and the shopping cart strapped to their backs are over-sized because to make the monster look more intimating, the developers decided to just set the size scale bigger, awkward looking parts be damned.

** Likewise, using an empty bottle against Ganondorf's projectiles in the first fight against him in ''Ocarina of Time'' actually works! When fighting the wizard in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', the Bug Catching Net can also reflect the projectiles back. The net is also Link's JokeWeapon in ''Soul Calibur 2''.
*** The empty bottle trick works in Twilight Princess too.

** One of the most famous examples is a player in Adventure Mode who encountered a Bronze Colossus, grabbed the first thing he could find in his backpack, and proceeded to headshot the Bronze Colossus with a thrown ''[[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Fluffy Wambler]]''. Another legend of the forums is a user whose chosen weapon was a huge stone coffin [[{{Hammerspace}} quantum-stuffed]] with the corpses of everything he had ever killed, for extra weight. It was heavy enough to pulverize ''anything'' when thrown. A less extreme but more common example: A mining pick is one of the game's most deadly weapons, due to Real Life picks' advantages being simulated but not the disadvantages. [[note]]To make this clear: Any item you hold must either be put in a backpack or held in a hand. During combat the game chooses a hand and where to hit with the object in that hand. This means anything be held is liable to be used as a weapon at any point during combat. With dwarves it's just a matter of when combat happens and if the dwarf likes holding an item. In adventure mode you can [[InvokedTrope invoke this]] by holding anything from meat to bones to armor to an actual weapon, as you directly control your character. Also, thought not gamebreaking, thrown items still do a good bit of damage. If you find a source of rocks, you can just endlessly pick them up and throw them at a target, or you can pull out that shirt form your backpack and throw it.[[/note]]

* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', you can be the Improbable Weapon User. Some of the weapons you can wield include black hole launchers, head inflators, and guns that shoot dubstep. Some of the weapon skins can make your guns look improbable too, like the guitar case for the rocket launcher, rubber band gun for the SMG, and water gun for the assault rifle.

Others are a gun that shoots octopi that speak engrish and explode after they attach to some poor bastard's head, a pair of oversized costume fists that turn people into bloody chunks, and a blunderbuss/chum maker that allows The Boss to summon the elusive and very real Steelport Sewer Shark. And then there's the [[MeaningfulName The Penetrator]] [[GagPenis dildo]] [[JokeWeapon bat]] (with candy cane skin in ''How The Saints Saved Christmas'').

* VideoGame/{{Kirby}} has a fairly large repertoire of abilities he can call upon with his [[MegaManning copying powers]]. Some are understandable, like the ReflectingLaser or the [[BreathWeapon fire breath]]. Then there's things like Ball (Kirby becomes bouncy and spherical, and with enough velocity can damage enemies by bouncing into them), Mike (Kirby's voice is amplified to the point where it harms all onscreen enemies), and Stone (Kirby [[TakenForGranite takes himself for granite]] and drops onto the foe).
** ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'' allows you to combine two abilities, often with insane results. Highlights include an active volcano [[NiceHat (worn as a hat)]], ice skates, fireworks, and a ''refrigerator''. To elaborate on that last one: Kirby transforms into a fridge and flings deadly food at the enemy...and any leftover food can be eaten to heal Kirby.
*** The Fire/Spark combo ability is another particularly silly one, being a simple sheet of plastic that Kirby rubs on his head to generate harmful sparks of static electricity. Do it for too long, though, and his head will ignite from friction burn and send him running around in a panic (Though ultimately no worse for wear), scorching anything he touches.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Double Dealing Character'' adds Sekibanki, who uses her own head for attacks, the Tsukumo Sisters and Raiko Horikawa, who use instruments (that are also their bodies) to attack with music and Shinmyoumaru Sukuna, who uses a needle and mallet.
*** Seija Kijin takes this further in ''Impossible Spellcard'' in which she uses a yin-yang orb, a toy camera, an umbrella, a replica of Shinmyoumaru's mallet, a jizo statue, a doll, a lantern and a piece of fabric as items to protect herself from bosses attacks. Oh, she also uses a bomb.
** ''Urban Legend in Limbo'' introduces Sumireko Usami, who attacks with a ton of junk, including: a panda ride, pieces of rubble (including concrete and cardboard boxes), a 3D printed gun, a black hole tablet, an electricity pole and street signs.
*** The game also gives characters from ''Hopeless Masquerade'' more moves, like giving Byakuren a motorcycle, Mamizou gachapon balls, and Koishi a telephone (and a knife).
** ''Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom'' adds Clownpiece and Hecatia Lapislazuli who both use moons as attacks.
