* ''FireEmblem'' has the Javelin, Spear and Short Spear weapons. Along with magic and Hand Axes, they are the only weapons to have the benefit of having a 1-2 attack range, meaning that they can attack ''both'' up close and at a distance. However, aside from this fact, these weapons (save for magic) are some of the least efficient weapons in the series, combining [[ScratchDamage scrappy damage]], scrappy accuracy and overweight.

Also it was apparently able to punch through any armor, be it quilted, leather or chainmail. The onyl thing it couldn't pierce was the Spanish steel plate of the invasion period.

* ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth'' has javelin throwers (and later pilum throwers and Persian cavalry ) as a shorter-ranged, higher-damage alternative to the archer and is useful for reversing the TacticalRockPaperScissors. In the expansion's Roman campaign, the Legionary can throw two pila at full charge, making them remarkably good at turning enemies into pincushions.
* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'': Troll Headhunters throw spears and have the least range of all the faction's basic ranged unit, while human bandits use poisoned spears.

* Javelins are often used by horsemen in the ''Literature/{{Deverry}}'' series, although the author's notes point out that they're very short javelins (three feet) and an alternate [[TranslationConvention translation of the Deverrian word]] might be "war dart".
