Added DiffLines:

* Spinosaurid dinosaurs like Spinosaurus, Baryonyx, and Suchomimus had a greatly enlarged thumb claw. Scientists aren't completely sure what the claw was for, but suspect that it was for clawing fish like a modern grizzly bear or to hold down large prey while ripping it apart with their jaws.


Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/Dungeons&Dragons'':
** The Hook Horror is a monster with a body like a bipedal beetle and a head like a vulture. Each arm end with a single, enormous hooked claw, hence the name.
** Rules for replacing a missing hand with a hook, short sword, or hand axe were present in older editions of the game, though they've been absent since 3.0 Edition since starting then rules for having a limb chopped off were taken out of the game.

Added DiffLines:

* The dinosaur ''Mononykus'' had lost two of the fingers on its hands, leaving only a large single claw (hence the name: "One Claw"). It's suspected that it may have used this claw to break into insect nests like a modern anteater.

Though most well known for their appearance on the Celestials, Retractable Blades can be used in other 'Mechs. However, they're considered to be the weakest among the already [[AwesomeButImpractical impractical]] melee weapons a mech can mount unless certain optional rules are used.

* In ''[[VideoGame/RimWorld Rimworld]]'' you can replace your pawns' arms, weather they lost the limb or not, with Mechanoid blades. This, predictably, gives the pawn in question a severe penalty to work they do compared to even a regular prosthetic, but it equally predictably gives an excellent modifier to melee attacks. Assuming the pawn is unarmed, anyway, since the game AI will prioritize held weapons even if their arm blades are superior.[[/folder]]

* The demon Mosp of ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' has a long curving spike on each arm just below her elbows. [[spoiler:They used to be handheld swords when she was human, but she was turned into a demon as punishment for betraying her whole dimension by letting the invading demon force pass through the dungeon she once guarded. Her swords fusing with her body was part of the transformation.]]
