* The Emergency Hammer in ''VideoGame/SilentHill1'' is basically a gigantic Horseman's pick with a small flat peen on one end and and a huge spiked one on the other; you guess which end Harry prefers to strike with. It's easily the most devastating melee weapon in the game.

* An ordinary icepick is the closest thing ''Ferazel's Wand'' has to an InfinityPlusOneSword, doing ''many'' times the damage of a dagger or a fireball spell.

* The Pickaxe of Despair is by far the most damaging-per-swing weapon you can find in ''SilentHill4: The Room'', and its ChargeAttack is a 720 degree SpinAttack that will [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom kick anything close to you away by a good 7 feet]]. [[AwesomeButImpractical The drawback is that the thing is so slow that you'll often get hurt while trying to use it, taking around 4 seconds for a single attack and over 20 to charge a spin.]] Interestingly, with it, your [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown stomp attack]] is replaced by Henry thrusting the shovel against the enemy when it's down.

* You ''can'' use your pick this way in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', but usually it's better to stick to swords or bows, as using your pick as a weapon deals less damage than either of those weapons and you cannot block with it like you can a sword.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' includes picks, which are required to mine ore. They can make a decent weapon if enchanted.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' includes picks, which are required to mine ore. They can make a decent weapon if enchanted. Two unique versions can be found: the [[VideoGame/MineCraft Notched]] [[ShoutOut Pickaxe]], which raises the Dragonborn's Smithing skill when equipped and deals minor shock damage to enemies, and Hoarfrost, which deals frost damage and has a chance to [[HarmlessFreezing freeze enemies solid]].
