* 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.

* 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.

* Lana managed to find a fire ax in ''{{Smallville}}'' once. And inside Smallville High School no less.
* An episode of ''{{CSI}}'' began with a student going insane with a fire ax from the building where all his friends were murdered. [[spoiler:He was in the bathroom, just tripping on LSD that a couple of hookers had slipped him (hoping to steal some money he'd won earlier playing bingo) and their pimp (whom they'd shot and were trying to flee) was the one who used the ax to kill his friends.]]

* While no axe appears the trope's spirit is mocked by one Treehouse of Horror episode in TheSimpsons. The Manor has a Baseball Bat in a Glass Case within easy reach marked OPEN IN CASE OF SPOUSAL INSANITY.
