* A crowbar is one of many, many [[ImprovisedWeapon household items]] that can be swung into zombie heads in ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid''. It's a moderately good choice, with short reach but very high durability. In an aversion of UtilityWeapon, quite unusual for Zomboid, the crowbar had no non-combat use until the ability to scavenge furnishings was added. Now a crowbar can also pry up tile flooring to spruce up your base with.

Crowbars are actually awesome, yet practical - they are very sturdy, fairly easy to obtain, heavy enough to be used as [[CarryABigStick clubs]] without being too heavy to carry, and have two bladed points that can do some nasty damage either by swinging or thrusting. Plus, they can be used as [[ShootOutTheLock lock bypassers]].

* Nyarko of ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' wields her "unspeakable bar thing" the same way others would use swords (and occasionally [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throws it]]). It's probably meant to be a reference to the crowbar's prominence of Lovecraft-inspired games like ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'', though Some fans have suggested it's a subtle nod to Nyarlathotep's Egyptian origins, since the crowbar resembles the ''was'' staff carried by pharoahs (and such was one of Nyarlathotep's 1,000 forms).
