* [[{{Badass Grandpa}} Master Asia]] of ''[[Anime/{{Mobile Fighter G Gundam}} G Gundam]]'', [[{{Red Baron}} The Undefeated of the East]], uses the sash he wears around his waist as a weapon. ''To absurdly lethal effect''. He can turn it into a makeshift drill or whip and the thing appears to exhibit the properties of a steel blade... and this is when he ''isn't'' [[{{Ki Attacks}} empowering it with his own ki]]. With this, he can destroy [[HumongousMecha Mobile Suits]] while on foot. Remember, [[{{Old Master}} this is the man who taught]] [[{{Showy Invincible Hero}} Domon]] everything he knew. [[MemeticBadass Yes, he's just that good]].

* ''Literature/ChildrenOfDune'' featured a fight between [[BadAss Gurney Halleck]] and some mook. Halleck's strategy is to wait until the man lunges at him, then to [[CombatPragmatist throw his cloak over the guy's head and stab him through it]].

* In ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'', LifeEnergy can be transmitted into inanimate objects, causing them to obey a simple command. This can be used to make clothing behave variously as CombatTentacles ("Grab things"), armor ("Protect me"), or PoweredArmor ("Give me strength"), enhancing the strength of the wearer.
** An enterprising Awakener once took this to its logical conclusion by telling a guardsman's tunic and pants to "fight for [him], as if they were [him]."

Added DiffLines:

* In the first ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' novel, Mudge suggests to Jon-Tom that the latter carry his more valuable coinage by sewing it into the hem of his cloak. Not just as a way of hiding it, but because the weight of them can be a useful weapon.

* ''Series/{{Rome}}''. When Marc Antony is attacked outside the Senate just after Caesar's assassination, he yanks off his toga and throws it in the face of the first man to charge at him, slowing the assassin down and making it easier to flee.

* [[VideoGame/DiabloIII Auriel the Archangel of Hope]] has the holy sash Al'maiesh as her weapon, which she pretty much uses to wrap enemies and obliterate them with it (or wrap allies and heal/buff them). She didn't get to use them in the game she appeared in (she had to play the DistressedDamsel routine), but she gets to use it during a promotional animated video Wrath, depicting the Eternal Conflict where she fought, and in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''.

* In ''GeneratorRex'', one of Rex's old buddies is made up entirely of bandages, and he can use them either for ranged attacks, or dissolve himself and slip in tight spaces. The mercenary IV also uses bandages as a weapon.
