** The Monk also appears in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' as an aggressive melee [[CombatMedic healer]] named Kharazim.



* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' introduced the monk class in the Mists of Pandaria expansion. Monks equip weapons to get improved stats, but the only time they use them to actually attack is with the "Jab" ability, and this is purely cosmetic. And even then, you can get a minor glyph which causes jab to use the "unarmed" animation instead of the one matching the weapon you have equiped.

** You can theoretically make one in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', but with a twist: there's no actual "unarmed" skill, nor are there any "fist weapons". Even training up one-handed weapons won't give you any useful perks. You need to build up your Heavy Armor stat until you unlock the "Fists of Steel", which adds your gauntlets' ''armor'' rating to the base damage of your punches, and if you find the Gloves of the Pugilist item you also gain the "Fortify unarmed" enchantment. After these are unlocked, you're suddenly going from long, grueling fights, to counting the seconds before [[WrestlerInAllOfUs the brutal kill-animations]] run. However, seeing as this build takes a long time to set up and there is no way to increase your damage output past a certain point this build can be considered less than useful. Especially when you can easily improve weapons to almost godlike quality.

* [[VideoGame/FZero Captain Falcon]] and [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf]] in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' share a moveset that only utilizes physical attacks. The main difference between them is that Ganondorf is [[MightyGlacier slower and much more powerful]] while Falcon is the second fastest character in the game. Franchise/{{Sonic|TheHedgehog}} also takes this approach in ''Brawl'', except weaker and ''much much'' faster.

[[Franchise/DonkeyKong]] also fits into this trope, as his moveset are all physical attacks, bar his Final Smash in ''Brawl'' onwards. Unlike the aforementioned three, he both moves fast and hits hard, making him a LightningBruiser.

In ''TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}}'', a ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' GaidenGame, [[RatMen Skaven]] Heroes are able to learn the Art of Silent Death special skill, turning them into a master of unarmed combat. Heroes with this skill are able to fight unarmed with no penalty, always count as being armed with two close combat weapons and are more likely to cause a CriticalHit against their opponent in hand-to-hand combat.
