* Papillon of ''LaPucelle'' wields a paper fan as her main weapon and can do pretty good damage with it. This being Creator/NipponIchi, 'pretty good damage' means 'nearly unlimited with enough grinding.'

* An incredibly rare non-anime example: In Creator/TamoraPierce's ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall'': the Yamani women of the warrior class use ''shukusen'', the delicate, deadly Japanese "war fans". Said women carry these fans when they feel endangered but can't carry a weapon openly. They are silk with razor-sharp steel ribs, are much heavier than they look, and can slice fingers like sausage--as Neal finds out when he interrupts a game of fan toss. (Luckily it ''doesn't'' end in {{Fingore}}, but Lady Yukimi demonstrates its cutting power on a tent pole to demonstrate what could have happened.) Queen Thayet immediately requests one for herself. Ilane also used to whack her children with a normal fan when they didn't cooperate with healers.

* In ''MortalKombat,'' Kitana uses fans as her weapons. They appeared to just be paper fans in ''MKII,'' but in more recent versions they strongly resemble [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_war_fan Japanese war fans]], most likely ''tessen''. She can [[MadeOfPlasticine decapitate people with them]].

* Inagawa Yuu from ''Videogame/ComicParty'' is also a fan-wielder. And similar to Tomoko above, she also [[CombatHandFan weaponizes]] it in ''[[VideoGame/TheQueenOfHeart Party's Breaker: The Queen Of Heart 2001]]'', and later when she appears as an AssistCharacter in ''VideoGame/{{Aquapazza}}''.

* Yuzu Hiragi's main shtick in ''[[Anime/YuGiOhARCV Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V]]''. Even her own father isn't safe. Her other target is Yuya, and since she primarily dishes out this punishment when someone's being stupid, and her father and Yuya are a BumblingDad and IdiotHero respectively, this happens frequently.

* In ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' and ''WarriorsOrochi'' the two Qiao sisters, Da and Xiao, take out entire armies with their twin paper fans[[note]]It takes a close examination, but the edges are tipped with metal, which is what they use to fight[[/note]]. Strategists Sima Yi and Zhuge Liang use big feathered fans that shoot FrickinLaserBeams. Sima Yi trades his in for RazorFloss and claws in [=DW6=] but gets it back in 7, also where Zhuge Dan takes up the family tradition with a feathered fan of his own. Of course, they are actually incredibly weak weapons though by 7 the feathered fan users can summon lightning as part of their repertoire and attack more by blowing gusts of wind at their opponents than simply whacking them.
* In ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'' and ''WarriorsOrochi'' the {{Bishonen}} Mitsunari Ishida, who wields a paper fan, happens to be a rather snarky and sarcastic fellow. Also, Takeda Shingen uses ''gunbai'' fans.

* The author of [[Fanfic/AWildBadficAppearedCommentaries A Wild Badfic Appeared! Commentaries]] is from Kansai, and has her AuthorAvatar Erika wield one of these starting from episode 5.

* The author of [[Fanfic/AWildBadficAppearedCommentaries A Wild Badfic Appeared! Commentaries]] ''Fanfic/AWildBadficAppearedCommentaries'' is actually from Kansai, and rather appropriately has her AuthorAvatar Erika wield one of these starting from episode 5.Episode 5. Though, it isn't until Episode 25 that she actually uses it as a weapon.

* [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Yukiko Amagi]] makes use of these. Oddly, she throws them at enemies rather than the typical smacking.
