* ''VagrantStory'' has spears, two handed axes, and two handed maces, and you can combine them to your hearts delight
* ''ChivalryMedievalWarfare'' has this as the Vanguard's weapon of choice, from spears to axes to billhooks. The Archer can also get in on the fun, with their [[JavelinThrower javelins, and short/heavy throwing spears]] - good for both throwing and for stabbing.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' features spear weapons, usable by the protagonist and Ken Amada. The protagonist mostly uses it as a stabbing weapon, while Ken uses it as a combination stabbing/slashing weapon, and a pole around which to swing his body for a couple of crazy kicks. In an interesting justification, Ken uses a spear, which is at least twice as long as he is tall, because he's so short, and he needs to use it to increase his range. Which isn't really an issue, given his attack style.
** The female protagonist in the PSP remake exclusively uses a naginata, although it is a different weapon type that does slashing damage compared to Ken's spears.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}: Innocent Sin'', [[spoiler: [[StupidJetpackHitler Hitler]]]] wields TheSpearOfDestiny. It [[AllMythsAreTrue has been told, for the past 2000 years]] (give or take) that a wound caused by this spear [[WoundThatWillNotHeal will not heal]]... which becomes a plot point when [[spoiler:[[BigBad Nyarlatothep]] manipulates Maya Okamura into fatally stabbing Maya Amano with it]], therefore leading to the events of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}: Eternal Punishment''.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' introduces a range of spears and halberds that Link himself can wield. As compared to the other melee weapon types (being primarily one-handed swords and two-handed greatswords/axes), these deal the least damage with each individual hit, but can strike more rapidly and from farther away, and are particularly ideal for mounted combat, too.

* Polearms are occasionally assigned in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', and when a character needs an ImprovisedWeapon they usually either make a shiv or a spear from available materials. Examples of characters who made spears include Niniko Kishinawa and Daniel Brent.

* ''SpartacusBloodAndSand'' The gladiator fighting style hoplomachus included a spear and a dagger. The length of the spear gave them a great advantage at a distance, but was obviously unwieldy in close quarters. Barca and Auctus fought in this style to great effect. Nasir, though not a gladiator, also wielded a spear when he joined the rebellion.

** In ''Literature/DaughterOfTheLioness'' we're introduced to what is probably the most fantastical weapon in Pierce's books. As a slave, Junai has to be more covert; therefore, Junai's "staff" sprouts foot-long blades at both ends when she twists the grip.
