* The Counter Sword in ''S4League'' keeps a small sword in the right hand, but it's only used for the weapon's weaker attacks. Counterattacks and the weapon's uberpowerful Jump Attacks and Strong Attacks instead use a massive armored gauntlet, nearly as large as the player character.

** There's also the (slightly less destructive, as well as much rarer) Displacer Glove, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin displaces]] things you punch [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom with predictable results]]. Its unique model "Pushy" pushes everyone's shit in faster than literally nothing else than the Industrial Hand (and even then it's only the blade having the massive damage per second).

*** ''Old World Blues'' adds the steriliser glove and corrosive glove: rubber safety gloves covered in chemicals that [[KillItWithFire set enemies on fire]] and [[PoisonIsCorrosive drain health over time]], respectively. There's also the Saturnite Fist, which is a slightly more powerful version of the normal Pneumatic Power Fist made out of a special allow called "Saturnite"[[note]]The same material that the Sierra Madre resort and casino has had for over 200 years with no dulling[[/note]], but taking it to your world-destroying toaster (yes) will give you the option to superheat it, which makes it stronger ''and'' lights targets on fire.

* Nero's Devil Bringer from ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4''. Dante has the Ifrit in the first game and Beowulf in the third, and the Gilgamesh in the fourth. The later two are gauntlet-and-shoes comboes, while the first are just gauntlets. Eryx in ''[[VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry DmC (2013)]]'' too. They're just gauntletls that looks similar to Hulk's hands.

** ''VideoGame/Fallout3'' returns to the original Power Fist (and two unique ones ''The Shocker'' [an electrical power fist] and ''Fisto!'' [exclamation mark included])., but also includes the Deathclaw Gauntlet, which consists of strapping the hand of the titular wasteland beastie to the end of one's arm. This doesn't sound much until you try it and realize that ''it ignores the target's armor''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' had the "Big Frigger" Power Fist. VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}} adds the Mega Power Fist which was the same except, you know, fistier. VideoGame/Fallout3 returns to the original Power Fist, but also includes the Deathclaw Gauntlet, which consists of strapping the hand of the titular wasteland beastie to the end of one's arm.

** Also, in Fallout 3 there's the unique weapons ''The Shocker'' (an electrical power fist) and ''Fisto!'' (exclamation mark included).
** And ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' surpasses everything that came before with the Ballistic Fist: a glove with a SHOTGUN attached to it which triggers on contact. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Uppercut a Deathclaw with it, go ahead.]] There's also the (slightly less destructive, as well as much rarer) Displacer Glove, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin displaces]] things you punch [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom with predictable results]].
** It's possible to learn to craft [[ImprovisedWeapon dog tags]] into a set of WolverineClaws, essentially holding sharpened tags between one's fingers. There's a unique version appropriately [[NamedWeapons named]] Recompense Of The Fallen.
** And lastly, there's [[BoringButPractical plain jane]] knuckle dusters, in both the brass and the spiked varieties.

** Oh, and you can't forget how some of the Ghost People in dead Money have a weapon that is literally a bear trap strapped to their fist.
** And in ''Lonesome Road'' comes the Industrial Hand, which adds a rather gruesome buzzsaw blade where the weapons punches so you can slice and dice as you ground and pound.
** Then there's Greased Lightning, an unique version of the regular Power Fist, which allows for some impressive RapidFireFisticuffs. Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar jokes optional.
** Speaking of which, there's the Fist of (the North) Rawr. Assuming, of course, you can take it from [[BonusBoss Rawr]].
** From ''Honest Hearts'' is the [[BearsAreBadNews Yao Guai]] Gauntlet, similar to the Deathclaw Gauntlet but worn as a glove. It's specialized variant is ''She's Embrace'', your prize after you kill Ghost of She.
** One last piece of DLC goodness ... the Two-Step Goodbye. Power fist, check. Shotgun, check. Critical kills cause a grenade-like explosion? Ka-boom.

** ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' still has the Pneumatic Power Fist, here being Pre-War power tools instead of military hardware. It can be upgraded to be Puncturing for armor piercing (by chaining some old concrete and rebar to it) or adding a Heating coil for 20 extra points of energy damage. Unfortunately, you won't get as much mileage as you can't use fist weapons with Power Armor and there are much better weapons to put Perk points in.

* ''{{Darksiders}}'' features the Tremor Gauntlet, a huge lighting-wreathed glove granting [[HorsemenOfTheApocalypse War]] a powerful area-effect attack. It bears a striking resemblance to the Power Fists of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' Anakin/DarthVader would use his ArtificialLimb As one. Anakin's arm could punch realisticly harder than a normal hand and a powerful grip.
