* Dr. Hutchison from ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''. The hook is extremely prominent, and she uses it to scratch something to announce herself, but she is generally a friendly warm person. However, this just accentuates her StepfordSmiler characteristics, and the viewer is constantly sure she's gonna start killing everyone. (According to the creator, the hook was due to the fact that they were [[ExecutiveMeddling told by executives]] that they needed a [[AffirmativeActionGirl female character with a good hook]]. They decided to take that a bit more literally than intended.)

* Captain Stickybeard from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has a candy cane as Hook Hand. (He also has an eyepatch and a peg-leg; this guy pretty much has ''every'' pirate stereotype.)

* One NPC you meet in the Frogwares game ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes: [[CthulhuMythos The Awakened]]'' is an utterly miserable guy with one of them. The punchline to his sordid story is the one time he had to go to the toilet.... You get to help him by delivering a prosthetic instead, because you need the hook to solve a puzzle. It's that kind of game.

* In the JulesVerne novels ''Literature/FromTheEarthToTheMoon'' and ''The Purchase of the North Pole'', veteran artilleryman, engineer and mathematician J.T. Maston has a hook (with fittings for a pen or a chalk) for the right hand and a guttapercha skullcap to cover a horrible scar in the head. His wounds are explained as the result of him designing a giant mortar during the UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar, which exploded at the first test shot, killing more than 300 men [[HoistByHisOwnPetard and disabling even more including him]].

* This was parodied in the first issue of ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'', where Comicbook/{{Robin}} has a nightmare about his hand being eaten by cockroaches and being replaced by a batarang hook thing. SelfDeprecatingHumor at work -- PeterDavid wrote both ''Aquaman'' when the hook was first introduced and ''Young Justice''. The other two characters' nightmares were ComicBook/{{Superboy}}'s jacket becoming fiery wings (David's ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'') and [[TheFlash Impulse]] ricocheting from one unbalanced personality to another, before snarling "[[HulkSpeak Impulse FLASH!]]" (David's ''ComicBook/IncredibleHulk'').
