* The Water Pistol, from ''MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''. It can actually be used to startle enemies and short-circuit electronics, but it's not nearly useful enough to be a LethalJokeItem.

[[spoiler: During the fight against the Man on Fire in Mission 20 it can be used to extinguish his flames despite Miller's protests, but it takes about ''90 shots'' at close range to put him out once.]]

* ''Videogame/JustCause 2'' has the Bubble Blaster, a hidden weapon which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Made even more hilarious by the fact that NPCs react to it like it's any other weapon, cowering in fear when it's fired at them.

* In the first edition TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasyRoleplay Realms of Sorcery had Erik' Sword of Confusion:
-->This was made for Erik the [[TheAlcoholic drunkard]], a notorious [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Nors]][[GrimUpNorth can]] mercenary. While in the cups he foolishly commissioned a wizard to make him a sword that could "cut through things like butter." The wizard was s good as his [[ExactWords word]]. Against normal targets, the sword has Damage -3, but it cuts through dairy products with the efficiency of a fine cheesewire. The wizard who made the sword was later found drowned in a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath vat of yoghurt.]]
* In the ''{{TabletopGame/Paranoia}}'' adventure "WMD" surprises players at about its halfway point with bizarre additional skills (Expensive Soaps, Quality Theater). At first it seems to be just more ''Paranoia'' weirdness, but it [[spoiler: actually foreshadows that the player characters have all been mindwiped. They are remembering skills from their previous lives as rich, successful citizens.]]

* ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers'' allowed you to pick up an Unstable Ordnance for 25 points, then put it back where you found it at a 20-point penalty, for a net gain of 5 points. If you did not put it back, you would explode when you dropped into the sewers.

** ''Awakening'' also has a joke staff and bow (called the Kneader and Slack Bow, respectively). The Miniature Lance and Missiletainn play with it a bit, as the Miniature Lance has 1 might but a rather good [[CriticalHit critical rate]], and Missiletainn is decent but not much better than the generic Steel Swords you can buy in armories.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': The Wooden Sword from the ''Heartfire'' DLC. It's meant to be a toy for a child, but you can beat a bandit to death with one all the same (The Wooden Sword can be turned into LethalJokeItem if you decided to apply enchants onto it). Odd considering you can give your adopted children real daggers as gifts. ''Dawnguard'' also allows you to dual-wield [[ImprobableWeaponUser a knife and fork]].
