The Art Attacker is a character who uses {{art}} as a weapon. This could be paint, puppetry, music, video, etc.

Unlike a StarvingArtist (who is dying ''for'' their art) an ArtAttacker has someone else is dying ''from'' their art. The attacker can be, but is not necessarily, a MadArtist. If they run a WaxMuseumMorgue, then their victims are very, very screwed.

* ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon'' features two artistic superpowers. "Neon" has various attacks that are accompanied by vibrant colors and one character can use them to pain glowing art wherever they want. The "Video" power set summons videogame angels and demons to do all sorts of things.

As opposed to a StarvingArtist who is dying for their art, someone else is dying ''by'' their art. The Art Attacker is a character who uses their art as a weapon. This could be paint, puppetry, music, video, etc.

Supertrope to MusicalAssassin, DanceBattler, and PaperMaster. Those examples should be listed on their own pages. ArtInitiatesLife is also strongly related.

The attacker can be, but is not necessarily, a MadArtist. If they run a WaxMuseumMorgue, then their victims are very, very screwed.

This trope has nothing to do with the telly series, Series/ArtAttack.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Kakyoin does this while he's BrainwashedAndCrazy early in the story. He attacks Jotaro by making a painting of him, then slashing the leg with red paint, causing a gash to appear on Jotaro's leg; later on, he uses a marionette to control the school nurse's body. After he's freed from DIO's mind control, it's shown that this was all unnecessary (since he then fights directly along with his [[FightingSpirit Stand]] Heirophant Green), suggesting that it was just [[EvilIsHammy theatrical flair]].
** The stand Bohemian Rhapsody also gives Ungalo the ability to do it. The stand causes fictional characters over the entire earth to come to life if there's a picture of them. When a person runs into a character they like, they get the character's role and are doomed to share their fate. For example, if you really like Vincent van Gogh and run into one of his self portraits, you will cut off your own ear and [[AteHisGun kill yourself]]. How is the stand beaten? [[spoiler:[[HoistByHisOwnPetard Weather Report has Vincent van Gogh draw a fictional character who's ability is to stop Bohemian Rhapsody]]]]

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has a sizable stable of art weapon users. Sasori, Kankuro and Chiyo are trained puppetmasters, Deidara uses explosive clay, and Sai can bring his paintings to life. Sasori and Deidara, like the ''Manga/OnePiece'' example, were partnered, but constantly argued over whose definition of art was superior.

* One group of interest for the ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' is the art group "Are We Cool Yet?", who is specialized on producing artwork with anomalous properties - sometimes with deathly results.
