* Samson, the original {{badass}} of Literature/TheBible, once wiped out a thousand Philistines with the jawbone of a donkey [[note]]this was a violation of his Nazarite vows, as he was to have nothing to do with dead bodies.[[/note]], this making this OlderThanFeudalism.

* In the French comic book ''La Licorne'' ("The Unicorn"), [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambroise_Pare Ambroise Paré]] is attacked by assassins sent by the Church. Thankfully, it happens in a laboratory with multiple dead bodies on study, which the surgeon promptly weaponizes - he stabs one to death with a rib, trips another into falling onto a ribcage (like the ''Final Destination'' example above) and smashes yet another by using a skull still attached to a spine as an improvised mace.

* Väinämöinen from ''Literature/TheKalevala'' built his first kantele (a stringed musical instrument) out of the jaw bone of a giant fish he has slain. Not exactly a weapon, but seeing how he was a master of MagicMusic, he used his kantele later to disable Louhi's guards to make a clean getaway with TheSampo.

** And even in Generation IV and on, Bone Club and Bonemerang are still exclusive to the two; meanwhile, Lucario and Mandibuzz are the only other Pokémon with Bone Rush.
** To further this trope, the held item Thick Club (known as Thick Bone in Japanese versions), which has the icon of a bone, doubles the Attack stat of a Cubone or Marowak holding it. Marowak is especially notable in that its Attack stat can reach a maximum of 568, the highest Attack stat obtainable in the ''Pokémon'' games without the assistance of stat-enhancing moves, abilities, or berries.
