* ''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.

* General Electric's "Hardiman" system has particularly terrifying hydraulic claws (as may be seen [[http://cyberneticzoo.com/?p=2656 here]]). They'd need the whole exoskeleton to be worn to use in a standalone fashion, and GE [[WhatCouldHaveBeen never solved]] [[AwesomeButImpractical potentially lethal positive feedback loops]] in the control system. Man amplifiers are coming back into fashion though...

* In the games where monks/martial artists appear in ''DragonQuest'' games, there is at least a few weapons of this type (although most monk and martial artist weapons are of the claw variety).

* The modern boxing glove is something of an aversion, designed more to ''cushion'' the impact of the fist with its target than anything else. Still probably has its shades of this mainly due to the context in which one most often sees it used...
** Boxing gloves are mainly designed to protect the hand of the puncher and not the face/body of the person getting punched. In fact, studies have shown that there are more deaths and serious injuries in Boxing than in MMA (wich uses smaller gloves) and for that matter, bare knuckle combat sports (like Kyokushin Karate) because the huge padded gloves cause the fighters to unconsciously punch harder. And allow them to punch the other guy in the head with near-impunity, whereas in a barehanded fight that's a great way to break your own fingers. And that's not even getting into the instances of boxers who have cheated by dipping their hand-wraps in plaster before putting on the gloves, meaning that there's effectively a thin layer of ''rock'' hidden by the gloves.

* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime'' has the Jurassic Rockpuncher zombie who uses the BambooTechnology version of this -- rocks tied to his fists. It's a surprisingly effective weapon since one smash from it will not only OneHitKill a plant, it will also leave a temporary unplantable crater behind!

* ''Videogame/{{Skyrim}}'' has one obscure encounter with an enemy wearing the magic Gloves of the Pugilist. And getting these gloves is almost the only way (besides an expensive Heavy Armor perk) to increase your weaponless Brawl damage, which is required for a few missions and "negotiations."
