* The Erich Zahn violin in ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries''.''Literature/TheLaundryFiles''. "This machine kills demons" indeed. In fact, it takes extreme skill and luck (and often costs sanity) to limit its killing to just demons, as it actually is one itself.

And the pipe-organ is a fully functional instrument. [[RuleOfCool Holy crap.]]

* The Bard class in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' qualifies as a variety; while they aren't using the instrument itself as a weapon (although certain rule interpretations can allow for this), the instrument acts much the same as a Wizard's spell catalyst or a Cleric's holy symbol as a tool with which they cast their magic, meaning that any offensive spells they cast are caused by the instrument they use.

Despite being weak with melee fighting, Billy can do a little dance that causes his guitar to spin around him, bludgeoning mooks.
