* In ''Theatre/{{Ruddigore}}'', when Robin, as Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd, has kidnapped Dame Hannah, she draws a small dagger to defend herself with, but what makes him cringe in terror is when seizes a much larger dagger from an armored figure and tosses the smaller one to him.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' is built off of this trope, to the point where some call it "the Killer-Loli anime". The series features the iconic, AxCrazy Ryuugu Rena, a.k.a. "Cleaver Girl". (The weapon, [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on who you ask]], is either a cleaver, a hooked machete, or a billhook/cleaver.) The machete is, mostly, used to find cute things. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Mostly]]. The Sonozaki family has an elaborate torture room that is put to good use, while Shion favors her taser. And even Rika wields a large butcher knife at one point. A syringe also makes a few appearances as a weapon, [[spoiler:although it's never actually used for ill -- it's always either an antidote for the show's slow-acting HatePlague or a hallucination]] (except for [[spoiler:when one was used to kill Tomitake]]). Rika's weapon of choice, however, seems to be a '''mop''' [[spoiler:, as seen in the Atonement chapter]]. This is even her weapon in Daybreak, a ''fighting'' game.

* The eponymous character from ''AmericanMcGeesAlice'' ''VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice'' slices and dices everyone and everything with her wicked kitchen knife. Until she needs to kill faster and more efficiently, that is. This is a literal psycho example, since she's really [[CuckooNest locked up in an insane asylum]] and all this is [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind a battle for her sanity]]. * In ''HeavenlySword'', ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword'', the supporting heroine, Kai, is an adorable girl who seems not all there in the head. She wields some sort of [[AutomaticCrossbows giant reloading crossbow]]. She also won't hesitate to threaten an enemy's '[[GroinAttack weak point]]' for 'massive damage'.

* In ''YumeNikki'', Madotsuki can use a kitchen knife, which causes some characters to move away from her if equipped, and is only effective against characters are harmless anyway (Uboa can't be stabbed, and the Toriningen take multiple hits, and will almost certainly get you first). She has 24 effects/items that she can use in total, but judging by the FanArt, the knife is easily the most remembered. ** Most player characters in YumeNikki fangames. Urotsuki from {{VideoGame/Yume2kki}} in particular uses a {{C|hainsawGood}}HAINSAW, and other one use [[VideoGame/DotFlow a pipe]] and another [[BiggerStick a club with nails in it]], [[{{VideoGame/LCDDEM}} another]] {{an axe|ToGrind}}, and more.

* [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Sapphire and her chainsaw]]. Played for laughs in one of the funniest moments of the third game. ** She's also proficient with {{ax|Crazy}}es. * Tira from SoulCalibur uses a weapon that's crazy in itself, being a bladed hula hoop sort of thing.

* CuteWitch Evie from ''{{Vindictus}}'' gains the ability to wield an increasingly large, elaborate, and frightening-looking SinisterScythe (some versions of which are larger than she is). * Lady in [[DevilMayCry Devil May Cry 3]] sports the "Kalina Ann," a modified [[{{BFG}} rocket launcher]] that is topped off with a bayonet. * [[OlderThanTheyLook Presea]] [[EmotionlessGirl Combatir]] of VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia fame wields a [[AnAxetoGrind battleaxe]].

* Molly in VideoGame/TheWalkingDead fights with an ice axe she calls Hilda. And she's more badass with it than all the other characters combined. * Both ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' and ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'' have this in spades. Female characters pack all sorts of psycho weapons like [[KnifeNut knives]], bladed hoop weapons, and in one particularly notable instance (Dynasty Warriors' Bao Sannang) what appears to be a [[KillerYoyo giant yoyo with blade attachments]].

* Mell Kelly of ''{{Narbonic}}'' has an ''alarming'' tendency to get her hands on such weapons, which, coupled with [[HeroicComedicSociopath her nature]], makes her one of the scarier ([[RuleOfFunny in a funny way]]) characters of the series. * Oasis from ''SluggyFreelance'' is a very sweet girl until something comes between her and Torg or she spots a Hereti Corp employee. Then the knives come out.

* Lily from ''AfterLily'' wields her psycho weapon (a knife) as early as page [[http://www.drunkduck.com/After_Lily/index.php?p=421878 4]] with very... bloody results.

** Arguably a subversion, in that she's much more therapist than psycho, to the extent that she's the trolls' TeamMom if not the [[{{OnlySaneMan}}the most level-headed of them all]]. Which may not be saying much. [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Trolls sure are weird]]. [[spoiler: She did have [[BackAlleyDoctor a pretty good reason]] for cutting off Tavros's legs.]]

** Subverted also in that, in a MythologyGag reference to ProblemSleuth, the chainsaw often turns into a tube of lipstick. [[spoiler: And then double subverted when she [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005441 coolly applies]] the lipstick, which is still covered in her chainsaw victim's blood.]]

* Not just girls, but ''ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum'' Agents in general, tend to be unbalanced. They also tend to have a thing for [[{{BFS}} pointy objects]], {{BFG}}'s, [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers]], and [[DeathRay Death Rays]]. * Don't piss WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick off. Lord MacGuffin learned this when she pointed a gun at him, and Lupa nearly got stabbed in the chest because she had Todd's "[[StalkerWithACrush affections]]". ** Elisa strangles Paw with a scarf and pokes him in the crotch (twice!) with his own dart after it accidentally hit one of her stuffed Phantom dolls. * Jade Sinclair (Generator) of the WhateleyUniverse ''loves'' this trope. There's her cabbit... that turns into a KillerRabbit and once slaughtered around a dozen badguys in one fight. There's her Hello Kitty compact, which flies... and knives pop out of the sides to become a sinning top of doom. There's 'Spinner', which is basically a lawnmower blade spinning at high speed without the lawnmower engine or housing getting in the way. There's the big athame that she turned into a spinning blade. The railroad spikes. The bear trap. There's a reason she's on the page for CrazyAwesome.
