* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games feature a small assortment of spears that can be useful in the early to middle parts of the game, before getting completely eclipsed by various quality melee weapons, guns, and grenades. Still, dropping a fleeing {{Mook}} by hurling a spear through his back is far more badass then just shooting him.
* The ''Dead Money'' DLC for ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' introduces [[{{GasMaskMooks}} Ghost People]], whose WeaponOfChoice is the Knife Spear, which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. It's a decent melee weapon for The Courier to use throughout the DLC, as ammunition is scarce and Ghost People must be dismembered to be permanently killed.
