WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer, everything begins to look like a nail. And when all you have is a group of enemies... Taking the ImprovisedWeapon trope to heart, hard-pressed combatants will use not just anything, but any'''body''' around as weapons. In less friendly terms: [[spoiler: beating a motherfucker with another motherfucker.]]

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Edward regularly uses his brother Alphonse's head as a throwing weapon. Since Al is a soul bound into a massive suit of armor, he really doesn't need his head, but it irritates him nonetheless.

ShamuFu is a SubTrope where the body in question is a fish or some other marine animal. The FastballSpecial is another subtrope specific to superheroing where a powerhouse throws a (usually) willing partner at a target, at which point the partner's unique abilities come into play. For people who club the others with bodies as standard weapon see ImprobableWeaponUser. For the un-improvised version see EquippableAlly. StopHittingYourself is a variant when you use your opponent's limb (severed or not) to hurt them.
