* ''Film/OBrotherWhereArtThough'': The one-eyed Klansman is nearly killed by a metal pole flying at him, but he catches it midair. The giant burning cross that falls on him, however, is not so easily stopped.

** Common in Mesoamerica, The ''Atlatl'', Náhuatl name for the spear-thrower, was a weapon very difficult to master, and so was a symbol of distinction and skill, the Aztec gods very commonly depicted wielding one. 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".

* One EliteMook in Manga/{{Berserk}} uses javelins, though given his size they're more like harpoons. In a lightless tunnel, he's lethal... unfortunately, he's up against Guts.
