* In Peter Jackson's ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' Aiglos, the spear of the Elven king Gil-galad, is inscribed with an elvish poem that boils down to: "This is Gil-galad, and [[BadAss he is kicking your ass.]]"

* Just about everyone in ''Literature/TheIliad'' uses a spear. The most BadAss example would be Ajax, who at one point protects the Greek ships [[YouShallNotPass from the incoming Trojans]] DualWielding two big-ass spears to keep them away.

* 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.

* ''GuildWars'' associates spears with the Paragon class, though they're better classified as javelins and are thrown in combat. ''GuildWars2'' uses them exclusively for underwater combat.

** Accurately called the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZ2vUpp4ADU Hunting Tiger Trident]], this variation on your typical trident was notable because it was designed primarily for, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin hunting tigers.]] A hunter wielding this would go into the wilderness, with the intent of killing perhaps a man-eating tiger, and when he found it, the tiger would often charge at him. The trident would be held forward, and the tiger would impale itself upon it. The prongs on the sides would keep the tiger from sliding farther onto the spear and swiping at the hunter. To strengthen this, the wielder would often dig the back end of the spear into the ground for extra bracing against the rampaging animal.

* The Royal Guards of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' tend to carry spears. The fact that quadruped creatures without opposable thumbs are given such a weapon is [[FridgeLogic likely a large contributing factor]] to why they get [[MilitariesAreUseless their clocks completely cleaned]] by each and every threat that rears it's head in Equestria.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'', several deities come equipped with spears or its variations, though not all of them are specialized in swinging their spears directly. There's Athena (who can throw her spear/javelin, but mostly relies on disruptive magic as a Guardian), Anhur (more a JavelinThrower), Ne Zha (aside of his fire-tipped spear, has some other tools for various utilities), and Awilix (uses several spear attacks, but heavily uses teamwork with her panther Suku). There is one God who is more specialized in spear-ish thing and all of his skills aside of just one involves how you slice your BladeOnAStick to your enemy: the aforementioned Guan Yu with his Green Dragon Sabre.

And later on, there's another one who is even moreso than Guan Yu: Erlang Shen, seeing that he's more about empowering his own normal attacks with spear for deadly results.
