* Most of the murders in ''Film/TheHouseOnSororityRow'' are committed with a cane.
* A MythologyGag in the loose remake, ''Film/SororityRow'' has the FinalGirl grab a cane identical to the one used in the original for self-defense.

* 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, causing him permanent brain damage. 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.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' antagonist Roman Torchwick utilizes this as his primary fighting style. It's a particularly epic example considering he uses it to fend of two attackers simultaneously, one of whom utilizes FlashStep and the other a pair of [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon (Shot)Gunchakus]]. Beacon headmaster Ozpin is an even more impressive example, given the sheer speed he can wield his cane at. In Volume 5, the much younger Oscar Pine takes up Ozpin's cane and fights similarly to him after receiving Ozpin's memories and Aura.

** In France, during the 1920s/1930s, the leaded cane (a cane made heavier with lead, especially at the tip) was actively used during street fights between ultra-nationalists (mostly royalists) and communists. Dueling was extremely popular from peasants to nobles until WWI when it started dying out (although the last known one took place in 1967).

* ''{{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.
