* The original version of ''Series/HawaiiFiveO'' did an episode in which the villain of the week is a vengeful sniper with hooks for hands; he was played by J. J. Armes, who is listed in Real Life below. [[Series/HawaiiFive0 The remake]] of the series remade the episode, with Peter Weller playing the character, along with a stand-in for closeups.

* ''PeterPanAndThePirates'' has the epitome of gentleman pirates, Captain Hook. This version is closer than most to the original Barrie novel and its sequels, devoting an episode to just how the hook came to be (Peter sliced his hand off with a sword in a fit of rage) and a couple showing what James Hook was like as a young man with two good hands (he was always a greedy cutthroat, though [[SiblingRivalry his elder brother was worse]], and even [[BackFromTheDead death couldn't stop his reign of terror]]).

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' treats hook hands as both prosthetics and melee weapons (they don't do much damage, though). Of note is the magical item called "Wizard Hook" from the pirate-themed adventure path ''Skull & Shackles'': not only does it allow a one-handed wizard to perform spell-casting gestures without penalty, but it also gives them bonuses to touch attacks for spells that require them.
