* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': A member of Captian Hawkins' crew fights with a pair of hooks attacked by a chain. In this instance they're a group of rather obvious SkyPirates who insist that they're perfectly legal merchants who dress that way because it's their heritage, later evidence shows that they're more like recovering pirates who are sort of trying to do legal business.

* ''Disney/{{Moana}}'': {{Deuteragonist}} Maui's weapon is a fishing hook almost six feet long. A formidable enough weapon on its own, it's also the source of his powers; as long as Maui is touching it, he can shapeshift into whatever animal he wants.

* Like the above, fellow Blizzard game ''VideoGame/Diablo3'' has the demon boss, The Butcher, fight you with a giant cleaver and a sickle on a chain to reel you in. Both weapons can be found as Legendary items, so your character can also drag enemies to their doom with a hook.

* [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Tyranids]] use a biological version of this, aptly named ''flesh hooks.'' These weapons are typically housed in the rib cage or abdomen and are fired by intercostal muscle spasms. Nominally, flesh hooks are used for scaling sheer surfaces, but they can also be used to impale or snare unfortunate victims and drag them to their doom [[MortalKombat Scorpion-style]].

A SubTrope of ImprovisedWeapon, a hook is a curved or bent device for catching, holding, or pulling, while a crook is an implement having a bent or hooked form, such as a shepherd's staff. These can be great weapons with the addition of tripping and catching things. Included are canes and fishing hooks. Hooks on a rope or chain can also be used as GrapplingHookPistol.
