* Sun Ce from the ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' series provides the page image. He wields a pair of tonfas as his WeaponOfChoice in every entry but ''6'', as well as the [[VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi crossovers]].
** Guo Huai receives a MixAndMatchWeapon which can only be described as a large, studded tonfa with an ''autocannon'' in it, with the muzzle opening towards the grip-end and a [[BayonetYa blade below the barrel]]. He bashes, stabs, and shoots in about equal measure.

* Raven uses them in ''EveOfExtinction'', where they are the most advanced Legacy prototype and give him access to energy blasts. Josh gets his hands on them for the last level, where they lose that power but can make him ImmuneToBullets for their [[LimitBreak Legacy Drive]].

* The R-Blade in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' series uses bladed tonfas.the appropriately-named "Blade Tonfas".


Added DiffLines:

* Lloyd Bannings, the protagonist of ''The Legend of Heroes: VideoGame/ZeroNoKiseki'' and its sequel, ''Ao no Kiseki'', uses these. It's even noted to be an appropriate weapon for a cop.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel III'' also gives us Juna Crawford's "Gunbreakers," which are tonfas that double as guns. Not surprising, given how she idolized the Special Support Section (the special unit of the Crossbell Police that Lloyd was the team leader of).

Wielded in pairs with one in each hand, a martial art based on the use of dual tonfas (Kobudo) exists in the Japanese islands of Okinawa. Archaeological evidence suggests the first tonfa were of Chinese or Indonesian origin, but they enjoyed much more widespread use in Okinawa and other Japanese islands. There it was claimed to have been developed from a a modified millstone handle as a result of the restriction of conventional weapons by the rulers of the land back in the day, forcing people to [[ImprovisedWeapon make their own weapons, often out of farm tools. ]]

They are a staple in weapon based fighters, where they are most commonly the main weapon for one of the female characters,[[note]]why male tonfa-users are the minority in fiction is unknown, since nothing about this weapon is particularly feminine, and it's popular among male martial artists in RealLife,[[/note]] and in any anime or manga where all kinds of weapons are already around they will often turn up somewhere down the line in the hands of a character, usually either a competent part of the hero's team or a major threat to the protagonists.
