* In ''[[Literature/MatthewHawkwood Rapscallion]]'', Hawkwood defends himself with a besom broom. Played far more seriously than most examples, as Hawkwood shoves the twig end of the broom in his foe's face; causing dozens of sharp twigs to snap off and embed themselves in his face. Ouch!

* ''VideoGame/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' for the XBox. Stuck without a weapon? Look for a broom or a mop (or just kick a chair in half).

* Played straight countless time on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''; any wooden object can become a stake, and Buffy will use it to great effect to slay a vampire, most notably when she massacres a vampire gang in "Into The Woods". PlayedForLaughs a few times, including when Cordelia picks up a spatula thinking she will use it as a weapon.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': When Agatha and Tarvek [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20061020 get cornered]] by Vrin the sword-wielding Geisterdamen warrior-priestess, Tarvek tries without success to use a broom as a weapon; Agatha has better luck because commands issued in her voice trigger just enough of an involuntary reaction in Vrin to slow her down.

Added DiffLines:

* It's not quite this trope, but several knife companies make a sheath knife with a handle that can unscrew, to allow attachment to a standard broom or brush handle. The idea being, you carry the knife on you, and when the zombies come (or whatever), you grab the nearest broom and attach the knife, resulting in a 4-6 foot stabbing spear. In skilled or at least fit hands, would definitely beat a basic knife as a self-defense weapon, and can be carried in places you can't legally have a gun.
