* In ''VideoGame/MedievalIITotalWar'', the English can field regiments of soldiers with billhooks (see Real Life below). They won't blunt a head-on cavalry charge like a formation of [[AntiCavalry pikemen]], but billmen do better in a protracted melee against horse units than more conventional spearmen, and are also effective against enemy infantry.

* ''GundamAGE'': Fitting its general "pirate" theme, the Gundam AGE-2 Dark Hound has two hooks at the end of cables mounted on its forearms. They are used as mid-range weapons and to yank the enemy around, throwing him off balance.

[[AC:RealLife]] * The billhook is a farming implement, basically a metal hook [[BladeOnAStick on a stick]] that was used for clearing brush and other obstructions from fields. Like many peasants' tools during the medieval period, it was a common ImprovisedWeapon and spent some time as the English NationalWeapon (alongside the more famous longbow). Many other types of polearms included a hook among their [[SwissArmyWeapon various fixtures]]; usually they were used to unhorse and/or trip the foe before moving in for the kill.
