This trope is surprisingly not that far from reality when you consider how martial arts weapons have included not just spears, swords, and knives, but farming tools, boat oars (see also UsefulNotes/MiyamotoMusashi), [[PaperFanOfDoom fans]], [[RingsOfDeath metal rings]] (no, not even chakram, just round metal rings), and... small wooden benches? Heck, this doesn't even go into the military trench shovel[[note]][[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entrenching_tool which is actually fairly terrifying, sometimes featuring a saw blade edge or bayonette]][[/note]].

Many games also have a [[JokeItem gag]] weapon for each of the party members, which is essentially an Improbable or NerfArm version of their regular weapon, such as a [[CombatHandFan fan]] or a [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter wooden sword]] for the sword-wielder, a broom for the WhiteMagicianGirl, or a squeaky-mallet for someone who normally wields [[AnAxeToGrind an axe]] [[DropTheHammer or hammer]]. Of course, this might end up subverted with an [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One]] [[LethalJokeItem Marshmallow Slingshot]]. Compare TheManMakesTheWeapon for when someone deliberately use a gag substitute of a real weapon to showcase his skill.

Sometimes they may be StatSticks instead, things that are "equipped" as a "weapon" to give the user the stats but aren't actually used for attacking.
