Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/UncommonTime'' has a few examples. The protagonist, Alto, fights with [[InstrumentOfMurder cello bows]]... somehow. Saki fights with [[DeathDealer card decks]] and Aubrey fights with handchimes, though their attack animations imply they may be attacking magically.

* ''VideoGame/{{Condemned}}: Criminal Orgins'', and ''Condemned 2: Bloodshot'' for the Xbox 360 have many improvisational weapons, including prosthetic limbs, crutches, and weirdest of all, exploding dolls. The game did feature firearms and hand to hand combat, but in the first Condemned, Ethan didn't carry any extra ammo, and so could not reload (however, the weapon could be used as a bludgeon both to conserve ammo and as a fallback if he ran out - the firearms were the only example of BreakableWeapons, though.), and in the second, ammo had to be scavenged from other weapons of the same type, or ammo boxes - which were, as usual, hard to come by. This led to the player relying on melee weapons (in the original) and his fists (in the sequel).

* Watanabe Seisakujo's ''{{Tsukihime}}'' doujin fighting game ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'', later rehashed by Ecole, features the Tohno maids in full blast as [[NinjaMaid Battle]] [[{{Meido}} Maids]]. Hisui, powered by the Tatari, has her personal HyperspaceArsenal ("Hisui's [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gate of Babylon]]") where she can attack by launching books, hangers, vases, lamps and trays. Other weaponry include [[DieChairDie This Chair]] (and [[DemolitionFu Table]]), [[LethalChef Explosive Plum Bento]], a FryingPanOfDoom, a Stirring Spoon of Hurt, a [[MakingASplash Bucket and Cloth]] and a watering can. Kohaku follows up with syringes, [[WhenTreesAttack semi-sentient plants]] that can pack a punch (Go, Johnny!) and her trademark broom, which, justifiably, doubles as a sword sheath. And her [[RobotMaid Mech-Hisui]], which is also a playable character...

* ''DonkeyKong64'' has this with each of the Kongs' weapons. The weapons themselves aren't improbable, discounting that they're all made of wood: a gun, a pair of popguns, a blowgun, a crossbow, and a bazooka. However, they're used with AbnormalAmmo: coconuts, peanuts, grapes, feathers, and pineapples, respectively. They also use [[MusicalAssassin bongos, an electric guitar, a trombone, a saxophone, and a triangle for an area wide attack]], and they throw oranges that act like grenades.

* ''ShovelKnight'', obviously, is yet another shovel user in this page. And yet one of the most efficient wielders of the spade!

* In ''VideoGame/TheSimpsons'' ArcadeGame, of the four playable characters, Bart attacks with his skateboard, Marge with a vaccuum cleaner and Lisa with a jump rope. The last (Homer) uses no weapons at all, just GoodOldFisticuffs.

* In ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain: Defiance'' a certain cheat code would allow you to give Raziel a cardboard tube to replace the Soul Reaver, in a nod to the PennyArcade strips about the cardboard tube samurai.
