* ''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.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'' uses this in a fight between Jimmy's mother and a robot duplicate of her: after pulling out the broom, mop, and rake, and having each one snapped in half by the robot, she reveals that she keeps a [[{{BFG}} plasma rifle]] in her broom closet "for those tough, ground-in stains". (Considering her son's experiments, a wise precaution...)

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', one of the melee weapons is a Wooden Mop, found either around the villages and stables or being wielded by Bokoblins. Strangely, when swung around it always makes a wet sloshing sound as if it had just been dipped in a bucket for a cleaning job, even the ones the Bokoblins use.
