The hammer is probably the most popular form of bludgeon; see DropTheHammer for examples of those. Also compare the more finesse-oriented SimpleStaff and the improvised BatterUp and RollingPinOfDoom for other types of clubbing weapons. For literal cases of a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ''big stick'']], often used as a pole-arm, see TelephonePolearm. Combine it with WhipItGood and you get an EpicFlail. Putting a blade on the stick gives you, well, a BladeOnAStick.

** In the [[ScaryBlackMan Yokudan/Redguard]] religions tradition, Ruptga, the "Tall Papa" and [[TopGod chief deity]] of the pantheon created Sep, the serpentine Yokudan version of [[GodIsDead Lorkhan]], to help him save spirits from Satakal's ViciousCycle of eating the world. However, Sep convinced other spirits to help him build an easier alternative, even though Ruptga did not participate or approve. When the plan proved to be a failure, leaving many spirits stranded on a dying patchwork worldskin, Ruptga punished Sep by "squashing him with a big stick". Sep could then only [[GodInHumanForm slink around in a dead skin]] or swim about harmlessly in the sky.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', maces and warhammers are differentiated from other weapons; they do the most damage per strike but have the slowest swing speed. They also have the potential to circumvent a percentage of a foe's armor when struck.

* The Kanabō, also known as the Tetsubō, was a popular weapon in feudal Japan. It consisted of a long, heavy wooden stick -- typically straight with an octagonal cross-section -- covered with iron studs or spikes over at least half of its length. There was a kata (fighting technique) -- Kanabō-jutsu or Tetsubō-jutsu -- specifically devoted to its use. Some later versions were completely clad in, or made entirely of, iron. In Japanese folklore, it was the favoured weapon of the [[{{Youkai}} Oni]]. According to TheOtherWiki, there is a saying in Japanese: "Like giving a kanabō to an oni" which means to give an extra advantage to someone who already has the advantage (the strong made stronger).
