* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': various boomerangs are available for Link throughout the series, used both in battle and puzzle-solving. Some boomerangs also carry over as one of Link's [[SpecialAttack special attacks]] in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series. The boomerangs usually stun enemies while a few others can cause some damage. The only games where the Boomerang is absent as an item are ''[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink The Adventure of Link]]'' (only present as an enemy weapon), ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' (replaced by Zora Link's fins) and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' (where the Beetle combines its properties with those of the Hyoi Pear from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'').

** In ''Discworld/TheShepherdsCrown'', Tiffany Aching wonders briefly why the Feegle are collecting the hardest substance known to man, toenail clippings from old people. As [[{{Squick}}]] the idea is so disgusting]], she shudders and moves on. Later in the book, she realises they are exploiting the semicircular clippings as battle boomerangs and using other fragments as edged blades... [[note]]In Irish mythology, the battle-goddess Morrigan apparently did use her fingernails as throwing weapons, capable of decapitating somebody if they hit.[[/note]]
