* Tika's most prominent scene in the ''[[{{Dragonlance}} Dragonlance Chronicles]]'' has her bashing a draconian in the head with a cast-iron skillet. The skillet was listed in her equipment (1d8 damage) in a version of the campaign modules on which the novels were based. In the 15th anniversary edition of the trilogy (The Annotated Chronicles), Tracy Hickman notes that Tika had a special weapon specialization, known as "Skillet Bashing", which gave several benefits when wielding a skillet.

* In ''NinjaBurger'', one of the combat boosting items you can get is the spatula, which is as deadly as the Ninja Burger Official Wakazashi. Also, a training card "Wok the Casbah" shows a ninja dual wielding ironcast woks on top of the Casbah.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', a Frying Pan is a JokeItem (in the axe/club category) acquired from random drops in skirmishes or around the avatar's castle. It's not completely useless, as it adds 10 to the wielder's Dodge rating, and unlike the E-ranked brass/bronze weapons, it is capable of scoring critical hits.

* ''Series/TheXFiles''. In one episode the MonsterOfTheWeek is an IntangibleMan. He breaks into the house of his ex, who swings a glass frying pan at him. The boiling contents pass right through his body, but fortunately glass is the one thing that doesn't, so he gets knocked out long enough for her to flee.

* The frying pan is one of many household items that can be [[ImprovisedWeapon drafted for combat duty]] in ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid''. It's only mediocre—much better used for making "[[ReducedToRatburgers small animal meat]]" stir-fry—but if you're desperately scrabbling through kitchen cabinets and your only other choice is a butter knife, take the pan.

* In the Met Opera's production of Donizetti's Don Pasquale, Norina playfully fences with Doctor Malatesta while they're coming up with their plot - she with a frying pan, he with a ClassyCane. This can be seen in the 2011 recording, though the revival [[https://youtu.be/XGbRsHpoZpE?t=26s changed it]] to a RollingPinOfDoom.

* Patty Fleur in the PS3 remake of ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' uses a frying pan for her Little Big Chef and Fire Big Chef artes. She only smacks them over the head with it for the former attack, though, and only if she's using certain attack styles. This is somehow just as capable of producing dishes as the other variants of the attack that actually look as though she's preparing food with the pan.
