* In {{Infocom}}'s ''VideoGame/TheLurkingHorror'', one can find a fire emergency cabinet in the middle of the university hallway. The description even notes that the glass-fronted cabinet lacks a fire extinguisher or hose, but contains a fire ax.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayedForDrama, and later PlayedForLaughs, in Series/AgentsOfShield: when Phil Coulson grabs one of the terrigenesis crystals, his hand begins turning to stone (because that's what happens when non-Inhumans touch a crystal). To prevent him from being completely turned, Mack chops off his hand with a nearby fire ax. The ax can be seen on the wall of Coulson's office in later episodes, and the event first spawns Mack's infatuation with the idea of a shotgun-ax hybrid.

* In ''Series/PersonOfInterest'', different characters use this in [[GroundhogDayLoop different simulations]], Team Machine is trying to escape from the stock exchange after Samaritan turned it into a trap. Though they don't actually use it as a weapon, instead using it to cut a lock that is preventing the elevator from working.

* A few of the boys from [[HiredGun Murder Inc.]] back in the 30's and 40's were known for doing their kills this way. It saved you from the need to carry a gun and as said above, almost every public building had a fire axe.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/SilentHill1'', Harry finds a new melee weapon in each section of town, barring the resort district. The hospital level holds the almighty '''Emergency Hammer'''. What's great about this "hammer" -- what makes it an anomaly from the later games -- is that it's found in the Otherworld. So the blood-red hammer is chipped and rusted, and it has a giant, chrome horn at the end. Perfect for sodomizing demons, and indeed, there's little reason to use anything else, so keep it equipped from here on out! This is one of few times when a SH protagonist can use Otherworld artifacts in the Fog World.
