* When wrestlers bring a shopping cart full of weapons to the ring to use in a Hardcore match the cart itself often becomes an ImprovisedWeapon. One memorable incident during the Wrestling/{{Raven}} and Wrestling/{{Rhyno}} match at Backlash 2001 had Rhyno try to hit his opponent with the [[RammingAlwaysWorks Gore]] only to [[http://youtu.be/33lQfKCPGhc?t=8m43s end up stuck in the cart]].

* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'': The Bundys and the Darcys both win a shot at a local grocery store's ''SupermarketSweep''-type contest. The Bundys show up with a {{Pimped Out car}}t.

* A far-less lighthearted example, in ''VideoGame/Fallout3'' Super Mutants use shopping carts as cages to keep wastelanders secure until the Mutants get hungry or worse, need someone to keep up their numbers. Super Mutant Behemoths, the [[LargeAndInCharge biggest]] and [[StrongerWithAge oldest]] carry shopping carts on their backs for the same purpose. The thing is the shopping carts the Behemoths carry are much larger than others; this is due to the Behemoth model being sized up to be more intimidating at the cost of not everything being scaled properly.

* ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'': In season 5, one contestant was reminiscing about playing "Shopping Cart Hockey" with his friends -- and they incorporated it into the show, with the contestants using their cars to push a shopping cart down a road and through a goal. They liked it so much, they have used several variations since then (but not with actual shopping carts).

* Done on ''[[Series/{{Studio 3}} Bitcom]]'' (a short, live action comedy show that runs as filler between programs on ABC3 in Australia) where the discovery of a shopping cart in the parking lot causes the two main characters to completely abandon their plans in favor of playing with it.
