* Parodied during an episode of ''WesternAnimation/StrokerAndHoop''. When the duo smack a cameraman and sound guy with bottles, the bottles don't break. It's heavily implied it kills the cameraman, and the sound guy just pretends to be knocked out to avoid brain damage.

* In ''Film/EnterTheDragon'', Oharra is getting destroyed by BruceLee, and in frustration grabs a bottle from an on-looker and smashes it. In the scene where he actually breaks it, he ends up with a very tiny stem of the bottle in his hand, with very small jagged edges to act as a weapon. In the next scene cut, he is threatening Lee with a more visually appropriately broken bottle. Of course, it still doesn't do him any good...

* ''VideoGame/ThePunisher'' for the XBox subverts this. Thrown beer bottles hurt... oddly just as much as a bullet to the chest (on easy mode).

* SoftGlass is {{Averted|Trope}} in ''RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy'', when Raidou hits [[CasanovaWannabe Rasputin]], who's an [[spoiler:android]], over the head with a bottle. Rasputin ends up knocked out cold and the bottle doesn't break.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'': In the second mission, the protagonist is sitting in a bar watching the news, when a gang member comes by and has the TV turned off. The protagonist says he/she was watching that, and the gang member replies "I guess you're not anymore, are ya bitch?" The main character sits quiet for a moment, then casually [[CrowningMomentOfFunny grabs a beer bottle and backhands it across the gang members face]], knocking him out instantly. Note also that Boss takes the gang member's bottle, and then ''goes back to drinking their own''.
* In ''{{VideoGame/World of Warcraft}}'' the "Barman Shanker" is a broken bottle, looted from a bartender in one of the (at the time) higher level dungeons. It is easier to get than anything from raids, and its damage-over-time effect was situationally useful. Most importantly, it was ''cool'' to carry around a broken bottle as a dagger.

** In the "Buster Special," when Adam tried to christen the new "Buster 2.0". It took several three tries for the bottle to break. Apparently whenever the Mythbusters try to christen something one should expect them to need several tries to make the bottle shatter.

** Marge (playing Blanche Du Bois) uses a bottle in this manner against Ned (playing Stanley) in the ''Theatre/AStreetcarNamedDesire'' {{musical episode}}. Notably she has trouble breaking it at first, but after getting a bit ''too'' into the role and imagining Ned as Homer (whom she was mad at at the time) she successfully breaks it, tackles him, and judging from the bandage on his chest later apparently managed to hurt him.
** The Comic Book Guy goes to Moe's Tavern and states that he dislikes beer: "Beer is the nectar of the nitwit." Lenny is incited, yells out "No one badmouths Duff!" and proceeds to attempt to break the bottom end of the Duff bottle he's holding for a weapon. [[RuleOfFunny The entire bottle shatters in his hands]] (though it doesn't harm him) and he says dejected "Aw, [[HypocriticalHumor piece of crap]]."
