** Like their representations in other works of fiction, Wyverns fro ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' have tails that end in a wickedly barbed, poisoned stinger. In some versions of the rules a wyvern who was slain could make one last Taking You with Me attack with the stinger before it fell.

* Wyverns (again) in one of the previous versions of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''. A wyvern who was slain could make one last TakingYouWithMe attack with the stinger before it fell.
* Likewise, the 4th Edition Carnifex in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has either a scythe or mace tail upgrade option. The difference? The scythe tail has 1-3 (''relatively'') weak attacks; the mace tail has one strong attack.
** Both attacks can only be used if there's enough enemies around, too.

* Scorpina in ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' has a deadly tail capable of [[ShockAndAwe electrocution]] in her giant, monstrous form.
** Dragonzord also has a [[ThisIsADrill drill]] on the end of its tail.

to:

* Several characters and mecha from ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and its adaptation ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' have this as a weapon. Most of the time, when a MonsterOfTheWeek is based on a scorpion, it has a stinger tail.

form. On the side of the good guys, Dragon Ceasar/Dragonzord also has a [[ThisIsADrill drill]] on the end of its tail.
** Both the Tyrannosaurus and Ankylosaurus mecha from ''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger'' (which is adapted into ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'') have drills for their tails. The Parasaurolophus has a tail that opens like a pair of scissors.
** Gozyujin, the HumongousMecha belonging to the SixthRanger in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' (adapted as ''Series/PowerRangersSuperMegaforce'') has one transformation based on a theropod dinosaur, which, like Dragon Ceasar and the Abaranger Mecha above, has a drill at the tip of its tail. The similarity in this case is justified, as this mecha is meant to be an expy to both the Zyuranger and Abaranger Mecha, as ''Gokaiger'' is an anniversary series.
** Yet another dinosaur based example happens in ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' (and its adaptation ''[[Series/PowerRangersDinocharge Power Rangers Dino (Super) Charge]]'', where each of the dinosaurs capable of transforming into an arm has its weapon inside its tail. These weapons include a claw, gun, hammer, wrecking ball and, yet again, a drill.
** The aptly named Stinger from ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'' is a HumanoidAlien with a poisonous tail, which he can extend at will to execute sneak attacks. His Ranger powers are based on the Scorpius constellation, so naturally, his Mecha is based on a scorpion and has a laser shooting
tail.
