There are also "Blast Knuckles", an armored glove that designed to fire blaster bolts when the user connects with a punch. Causing quite a bit of damage but also strain to the user.

* Lugnut of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' can perform what fans have referred to as "[[FanNickname the Punch of Kill Everything]]." His fist produces a bomb, and when he punches the ground with it (which he sometimes does with ''a jet engine''), it sends a devastating shockwave (no, not [[TheMole that Shockwave]]) in all directions (somehow not damaging him). Of course, it can also be an AchillesHeel: hit his fist before it hits the ground, it goes off early and he takes the brunt.
** And from Fun Publications' fiction based on ''Anime/TransformersCybertron'' and ''TransformersAnimated'' come the [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Nucleon_shock_gauntlet Nucleon Shock Gauntlets]].

** ''Anime/TransformersCybertron'' joins this with CombiningMecha to give us Savage Claw Mode. Leobreaker transforms into a massive arm that can take the place of one of Optimus Prime's arms (Optimus must be in SuperMode, though). It becomes even more devastating when Leobreaker deploys his [[NitroBoost Cyber]] [[AmplifierArtifact Key]]-activated claws, which extend over the fist. With the claws out, Optimus can perform an attack inspired by Goldymarg's Shining Finger move. After Megatron creates Nemesis Breaker, an EvilKnockoff of Leobreaker, he can combine with N.B. for Dark Claw Mode.

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' gives us back cestuses and claws, which can now be [[DualWielding powerstanced]] for a quick combo of punches. Also, there's a [[InfinityPlusOneSword special]] ring that gives your [[BareFistedMonk bare fists]] a massive boost and allows powerstance for them as well.

***Then there is the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Bone Fist]] that after strapping to your fists as a weapon, allows the player to fight in martial arts moves, a mixture of Bājíquán with Muay Thai and Ryu's moves, "as if the very spirit of the bone's malicious owner had taken control".

* In ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', Paperinik's favored function of his [[SwissArmyWeapon Extransformer shield]] is the Crusher, a powerful and extendible power fist. The Crusher has become [[IconicWeapon so iconic]] that "classic" Paperinik stories (that ignore the ''Paperinik New Adventures'' continuity) from Denmark have given him a multi-purpose gauntlet as his main weapon.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' all fighters wear armor, so they have this by default, but the Dragon Cloth includes a reinforced right gauntlet that is far harder than it should, allowing the Dragon Saint to punch much above his weight.

* Master Monks in ''ShiningForce II'' equips fist weapons to counter their abysmal base Attack power, due to being [[WhiteMage healers]] previously before promoting. They still manage to turn the class into a walking death machine though, due to the fists having the highest attack ratings of all the game's weapons.
