* ''[[VideoGame/BigFight Big Fight: Big Trouble in the Atlantic Ocean]]'' has a big arsenal of weapons for an arcade game: in addition to more traditional weapons of the genre, you can use: a bucket, a frying pan, a football, a hammer, and a two-by-four table.

** At one point, the player gets the chance to turn a gigantic magnetic crane into a weapon. Few things say "you're fucked" like having a shipping container dropped on your head.

** At one point, point in the chapter "Highway 17", the player gets the chance to turn a gigantic magnetic crane into a weapon. Few things say "you're fucked" like having a shipping container dropped on your head. Hell, you can use the dune buggy as a wrecking ball but that's not nearly as fun as using shipping containers.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' you can obtain schematics for [[HomemadeInventions various weapons]] to make out of the junk which litters the game's AfterTheEnd setting. These weapons themselves qualify to a degree (such as a crossbow made from a paint gun and a toy car and a flaming sword made from a lawnmower blade and a petrol tank) but the straightest example of this trope is the Rock-It-Launcher, which can fire ''[[AbnormalAmmo anything]'' you put into it as a projectile.
** In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', the trend is continued, with machetes that are clearly lawnmower blades electrical-taped onto a wooden handle. Another is a "rebar club" which is literally a steel rebar with a chunk of concrete on the end swung as a club. There's also the Bumper Sword, which is literally a car bumper, license plate still attached, which has been fashioned into a massive sword.
** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has its own share of improvised weapons. The Rock-It launcher is back, renamed as the Junk Jet and can shoot any item classified as "Junk" (which includes bundles of [[CastFromMoney pre-War currency]]), as well as most of the other improvised weapons from ''3''. New to this game is the Syringer Rifle, which shoots [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin syringes]] [[AbnormalAmmo full of chemicals]], with the effects depending on the chemical inside the syringe.

* Kazuma Kiryuu from ''Videogame/{{Yakuza}}'' is capable of beating the crap out of people with a range of unconventional weaponry including, but not limited to: bowling balls, flowerpots, briefcases, traffic cones, tea kettles, and salt shakers.

His Beast/Destroyer style even lets him lug a motorbike onto his shoulder and beat a man over the head with it!

** Cubone and Marowak use a dirt-covered bone (they're Ground-Type for ''some'' reason), and Farfetch'd uses a ''leek'', which became an actual item in ''Generation II''.
** Introduced in Gen IV is the move Fling, which makes you throw your held item- ''any'' held item- at the enemy.

** Cubone and Marowak use a dirt-covered bone (they're Ground-Type for ''some'' reason), Ground-type because bones can be found underground; the Dark-type would have worked better, because Dark-type moves are all about [[CombatPragmatist fighting dirty]], but it didn't exist yet), and Farfetch'd uses a ''leek'', both of which became an actual item in ''Generation II''.

* Most weapons in ''VideoGame/TheSurge'' are re-purposed industrial tools such as large hammers, cutting tools, welding tools, and manipulator attachments. Justified in that the game takes place in a giant factory complex where all the workers went insane so most of them are armed with industrial tools.

* There are so many improvised weapons available in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' that the [[PerpetualBeta development team]] had to dial back the number of them in the game in favor of more normal weapons. Characters can pummel their enemies to death with fishing poles, frying pans, broken bottles, chunks of ripped-off coral reef, HollywoodTorches, and more.

* ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' for the Xbox 360 has this as a main selling point. ''Any'' item that Frank can lift can be used to kill zombies, up to and including a deck parasol. An XBox Achievement is actually called "It's Raining Men" and involves using the deck parasol to push a number of zombies out of the way. It's actually a great item to clear a path. Bowling balls will knock over zombies like bowling ''pins''. In a pinch, park benches will kill a dozen zombies in a single swing - and then break. Now, burning zombie faces with a heated frying pan, throwing soda cans at zombies heads or embedding a ketchup bottle there... [[RuleOfFunny that's just silly]]. To say nothing of the Shower Head, now. Zombies seem to have HighPressureBlood, so jamming one in their head [[BloodyHilarious causes them to give themselves showers]]. And at later skill levels, the player learns a skill that lets him [[GrievousHarmWithABody pick up zombies and throw them]].

* ''VideoGame/AkibasTrip'' runs off of this, as your weapons are all improvised items you can find being carried by people in Akiba, like laptop computers, umbrellas, rolled-up posters, and other random items.

Even the few actual weapons you can get in the game, like the anti-material rifle, are just used to hit people rather than for their intended combat function.
