* And then there is the Chinese weapon know as the [[http://www.chinatown-shop.com/images/p3/11048g.jpg Wolf Tooth Club]], which is in fact every bit as {{Badass}} as it sounds, with a pointy bit on one end and a head full of spikes on the other.

* Sharur, "smasher of thousands", was the weapon and symbol of the Sumerian/Akkadian god Ninurta. It talks, it flies, provides a way to talk to the god Enlil, and can turn into a ''winged lion''. It also smashes stuff.

* Fighting in the trenches in [[UsefulNotes/WorldWar1 The Great War]] necessitated a quieter breed of weapons. Sure you had your standard issue weapons, but when you need something with a little more oomph there's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trench_raiding_club the trench club]]. Fashioned in the field by squad carpenters, they were made with any wood-handles and on-hand metals, including ''defused grenades'', to create maces, morningstars, and [[EpicFlail flails]] to get the drop on enemy troopers and finish them off after a gas attack.

* Vetinari in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' series walks with the aid of a cane, rumoured by some to conceal a sword. He encourages these rumours, because "if people think your stick might be a sword, they forget that it's ''definitely'' a stick." There's also Arch-chancellor Ridcully, whose staff is dependable enough as a bludgeon that he seldom needs to resort to fireballs, and Igor (not TheIgor, just a guy called Igor that runs a BadGuyBar) using a club with several {{Weaksauce Weakness}}es of the local beasties added on to it. For regular people, the fact it's a damn good club is usually enough.

* Referenced again in ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'' in a match with Washington vs Lincoln, who were being coached by Nixon and Roosevelt respectively. Midway through the match, Nixon and Roosevelt have an exchange of words, but Nixon then comments that he can't hear Roosevelt because he's speaking so softly. Roosevelt then pulls out a big stick and proceeds to hit him with it.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'': Protagonist Mikazuki favors enormous, heavy bludgeoning weapons. His Gundam Barbatos starts out with a gigantic mace with concealed pile-driver, moves on to what is effectively an even larger ''wrench'' with a built-in chainsaw, and finally a huge straight sword in the second season (and please note: these weapons are oversized even by HumongousMecha standards). He's carried guns and a katana as well, but he seems to prefer simply crushing foes with giant hunks of metal.

** Kudal, original pilot of the Gundam Gusion, used a huge, rocket-propelled sledgehammer. When Akihiro gets the Gusion, he ditches this in favor of more traditional weaponry.
