* Kimimaro from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' can use the bones in his body as weapons, including his fingertips as bullet-like projectiles. Justified in his case, since he can grow new bones with chakra.

** Stalnox in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' can break off their rib bones and hurl them, though unlike most examples of the trope, they have a limited supply. You can also pull this off yourself using the dropped arms of Stal enemies and in the case of a Stalizalfos arm, it'll act as a fragile PrecisionGuidedBoomerang.

* [[BossInMookClothing Ghouls]] in ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' carry across their chests a bandolier of skulls that are not just for show. Skull Toss is their go-to method of wrecking your backline: it causes a ''lot'' of physical damage, deals stress, and has a considerable chance of stunning the targeted hero.

* In Tercio/Line Infantry warfare (c.1550-1850) the most common form of shrapnel removed from the wounded was bone. Arquebus, matchlock, and musket barrels were made wide enough for them to fire bullets which could shatter even the body's largest bones and spray them the other side of a man as shrapnel. The second-most common material removed from wounds was of course clothing. Overclothes were particularly dirty as they were rarely washed, since very few (common) dies were capable of retaining their colour when washed with water (undyed underclothes were there to insulate your overclothes from your sweaty body, and ''were' washed). Both bone and clothing had a tendency to cause infection when left in wounds.
