** Similarly to the Sticky Jumper is the Rocket Jumper; a counterpart training weapon for the Soldier. Like the Sticky Jumper, it negated all explosive damage. However, one of the taunts you could do made the Soldier grab a grenade, pull the pin, and blow himself up along with everything in the immediate vicinity. Normally, soldiers are loud and easy to spot, so it would be really hard to actually catch anyone in this (especially since they can just shoot your face in). However, with the Rocket Jumper, not only could you maneuver to the back lines extremely quickly and without drawing attention (you can jump extremely high without worrying about self-damage, and no one ever looks that high up), you also didn't die from your own suicide attack! This is especially potent against snipers and engineers setting up their sentries, as they will be completely vulnerable and unaware you're there and will generally be unmoving. Sadly, this has since been removed from the game.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' has a sidequest involving an eccentric inventor that ends up netting your party lots of useful goodies: the last part of the sidequest requires you to perform various tasks, like doing enough total damage during a single playthrough, fighting enough battles, carrying enough money, and running away from enough battles. As a reward, you get a [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter shinai]], a piece of grilled chicken made out of metal, a cat-teasing toy, a measuring tape, [[{{Tekken}} Heihachi's]] head made out stone on a handle with [[GoroawaseNumber 765]] Kg printed on its forehead, a [[RunningGag deck brush]], and a slingshot with a blade attached to it. They're still useful, since like in the above example, their attack strength is compareable to most other endgame weapons, and even if it wasn't, all of them still teach you unique skills you can't learn elsewhere. The cat teaser and the deck brush also have unique special attacks, the latter of which even has potential to do an easy infinite combo.

** The [[VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}} first]] [[VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}} two]] games both have the Red Ryder Limited Edition BB gun, which has the same average damage as a sniper rifle with half the weight, a 50% faster fire rate, and a 100-round magazine. Its best use is putting someone's eye out (no coincidence, since it's a ShoutOut to ''AChristmasStory''.)

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' brings back the Rock-It Launcher, now renamed the Junk Jet. As with before, you can launch any junk item at any enemy and turn them into [[ChunkySalsaRule chunky salsa]].

** ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' The Pimp slap was a ring on your finger that was only available in multiplayer. On the ground it was a pimp hat and when you picked it up you wore the hat.

* The PS3 version of ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'' has the Pretty Parasol. It's not even a ParasolOfPain -- it's classified as a shield. It also ups ''every single stat'' and offers resistance to [[FireIceLightning the three core elements.]]

* In ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'', Akiko Minase's fighting style revolves around using a vast array of household items, such as: A broom, a vacuum cleaner, a frying pan, a duster, a ladle, a fire extinguisher, a cooler that she uses as a missile launcher (Fittingly enough, the "ammunition" is [[EdibleAmmunition vegetables]])... even ''a washing machine!'' And of course, her famous "[[GargleBlaster Special]] [[ScrewballSerum Jam]]", which she reserves for her Final Memory.

* In ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'': twin maids [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Hisui and Kohaku]] were powered up by the Tatari influence, and both fight using items tied to her chores at the Tohno Mansion.
** Hisui uses items such as: a bucket of water, a watering can, a duster, explosive bentos (with plum sandwiches no less), several vases and books which she throws as projectiles, cooking utensils such as a ladle, a frying pan, a wok, a serving tray, [[MemeticMutation a chair]]... even ''a table!''.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has a set of joke weapons that become available for the party around the end of the first Disc. They have no Materia slots, but hugely impressive attack. Notable is Aeris's Umbrella, her most powerful physical weapon, and obtainable relatively early into the game if you're into betting on the Chocobo races - it's so strong as to outclass anything else your party members have available, meaning you can use her as a bruiser or even Berserker for a while.

*** If you're still feeling peckish, The Jade Ham from the ''Jaws of Hakkon'' DLC is a carved ham roast stuck on top of a stick. It's one of the best one-handed weapons in the entire game. (Notably, you can put a magical rune on your ham roast to upgrade it. The weapon also has a chance to inflict poison, which has some [[CordonBleughChef less savory implications]].)

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has the Ramjet Rifle. You get to keep it after field-testing it for a weapons researcher, who decides against developing it further due to the fact that most of its stats are absolute garbage (for instance, it has an attack of ''one'' at a point in the game where other weapons of the same type will be closer to ten). The key word being ''most'': While its attack is awful and it has an absurdly long cooldown, it also gives 300 TP per attack, meaning with the right build you can practically spam powerful attacks that would otherwise take a while to build up TP for.

** [[FridgeLogic Interestingly enough]], their fighting styles are switched around in regards to their normal chores: Hisui fights with cooking utensils, despite the fact that [[LethalChef she's not precisely a good cook]], but she does a great work cleaning; and Kohaku fights with a broom, despite the fact that she's [[CuteClumsyGirl a little clumsy for cleaning]], but [[SupremeChef her cooking is excellent]] ([[FridgeBrilliance However]], throwing plants in battle is actually tied to her gardening, and attacking with a duster and a bucket of water is tied to Hisui's cleaning).
