* In one issue of ''[[ComicBook/TheFlash]]'', Doctor Alchemy strung fine wires of pure molybdenum across the shortest path to reach him. Glash realized what was going on and veered off in time, but if he hadn't, he likely would have sliced himself to pieces at the speed he was running at.

** In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStoneOcean Stone Ocean]]'', Jolyne ''becomes'' this with her Stand, Stone Free. It unravels parts of her own body into durable strings, which are used in increasingly clever strategies. It further helps that the Stand itself is free to fight off enemies at close range with brute force while Jolyne handles the TrapMaster work.

* ''{{GURPS}}'' finds a bunch of clever uses for monowire from whips to swords to fences to bullets. There's also a superior version called nanothorn which is like monowire but doesn't cut things so much as it ''dissolves'' them by slicing their molecular bonds.

* Alex Fierro's signature weapon in ''Literature/MagnusChaseAndTheGodsOfAsgard'' is an enchanted pottery wire. It's magically extendable and can cut through boulders, but not always magical beings. [[CombatPragmatist Still makes an excellent garrotte in those cases]].
