* Though they might look normal at first glance, the majority of weapons in ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' were actually cobbled together from non-weapon items. The Nozzlenoses are repurposed garden hoses, the Inkbrush is a giant paintbrush, the Hydra Splatling is a portable fire hydrant, and the Luna Blaster is a hair dryer, for instance. There is also an entire weapon class consisting of gigantic paint rollers, which can be swung to flick harmful ink at foes or club them as a bludgeon. ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon 2}}'' introduces more outlandish weaponized mundane objects, such as the Goo Tuber (a soybean paste dispenser), the Clash Blaster (a roll of crayons), and the Curling Bomb (an exploding curling stone), as well as a new weapon class themed on [[ParasolOfPain umbrellas]].

* Mal'Damba from ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' is a witch doctor who uses a cobra as his main weapon, which spits globs of venom and shoots healing lasers from its eyes. He also "[[UnorthodoxReload reloads]]" his snake by throwing it (which stuns enemies) and having a new one slither up his arm.

** Some of the moves make use of improbable weapons as well; Grass Knot ties a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin grass knot]] around the foe's leg to cause them to trip, Octozooka is a giant blast of ink.

** Some of the moves make use of improbable weapons as well; Grass Knot ties a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin grass knot]] around the foe's leg to cause them to trip, Octozooka is a giant blast of ink. In Chansey's case, egg bomb qualifies as well, given that it's using its own egg as a weapon. Pay day essentially [[AbnormalAmmo shoots coins at the opponent]]. If the trainer whose Pokémon used that move wins, they'll find money on the ground if the battle is a wild encounter, or will receive a boost in prize money, if it is a trainer encounter.



** The move "Fling" lets your Pokemon use [[ImprovisedWeapon whatever item they're holding as a weapon by throwing it at the opponent]]. It's advised that you use an item that can deal a lot of damage, but you can easily stock up on though. This can be averted if your pokemon knows Recycle, but chances are you might accidentally take out your opponent with fling before you have a chance to do anything else.

Averted if you're using Fling in settings like the Battle Tower or Battle Subway where one-use items are replenished after each match, but that's still a move you can only use once per match, and with its Dark typing, it can only do massive damage to two types.

* A notable game mechanic of ''VideoGame/LEGOIndianaJones'' let the player become this if they so choose. In many of the stages, half the [[DieChairDie destructible objects there are]] useable as weapons, if the character is unarmed. One of the tips at the beginning of the game says, "Ammo problems? Start throwing the room at them!" This is often a wise choice, as unlike other games in the LEGO series, most of the firearms in this game have limited ammo, so the room itself can, indeed, be a viable weapon, chairs included.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'', Beatrix's WeaponOfChoice is her right cybernetic arm the Incistyx Injector which is a gigantic syringe-arm larger than herself. She typically uses it like a SniperRifle to shoot out diseases on the battlefield to either enfeeble enemies or aid allies.

* The ''VideoGame/StreetPassMiiPlaza'' game ''Battleground Z'' has weapons based on the hobbies of the Miis from 3DS systems you pass by. Since most of these hobbies aren't exactly based around combat, they can get really bizarre when they get weaponized. The default weapon is the most normal one: A giant {{Wii}} Remote you swing around. Beyond that, you can attack with paintbrushes, the Internet, party poppers, pop-up books, selfies, suitcases, a tour bus that drives enemies into oblivion, and much more. The absurd weaponry makes this ZombieApocalypse game a lot lighter.

** 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.
