* ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer40000}}'': Fabius Bile (formerly) of the Emperor's Children has a ClassyCane that he uses to beat people to death with (it causes Instant Death[[labelnote: its rule]]If a model suffers an unsaved wound from an attack that has a Strength value of double its Toughness or greater, it is killed outright and removed as a casualty.[[/labelnote]]) but it's not a "Power Pimp Cane" and therefore can't punch through armor. Which is the point as he serves the "beef up these Chaos Space Marines to make them hit like a dump truck" guy.

* Laid-back {{Yakuza}} executive Mizuki Akabayashi from ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' may seem mellow, but if you think that [[WeaponOfChoice gaudy cane]] is just for decoration you have another thing coming.

* In 1856, after Senator Charles Sumner berated Senator Andrew Butler for fighting for slavery (which included much ridicule on his mannerisms), Butler's nephew, Senator Preston Brooks, retaliated by beating him with his heavy cane until it broke. As would be expected in pre-[[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Civil War]] America, Brooks was hailed a hero in the South (with Sumner the same in the North).

As would be expected in pre-[[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Civil War]] America, Brooks was hailed a hero in the South (with Sumner the same in the North). Also note that Brooks had deliberately timed his attack so that Sumner would be trapped in his combined Senate desk-and-chair and be unable to fight back effectively.

The use of a cane as an ImprovisedWeapon. Often associated with WhenEldersAttack, next to HandbagOfHurt. Given the bent shape, it can also double as a [[HooksAndCrooks hook]]. A JustifiedTrope in that the Korean martial art [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hapkido Hapkido,]] the British [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartitsu Bartitsu]] and the French [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savate Savate]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canne_de_combat Canne]] utilize the walking cane as a potentially deadly weapon. Of course, consider for a moment that a cane, to be effective in it's designed purpose, has to be strong enough to support a person's weight, and long enough to allow themselves to hold themselves upright with it. That combination makes for a potentially very effective melee weapon.
