* This trope's association with TechnicalPacifist types came about (at least in the Europe) from their use as [[StaffOfAuthority Staves of Authority]] for doctors during the Medieval period, especially [[PlagueDoctor plague doctors]] during the era of TheBlackDeath; the doctor could use the staff to manipulate diseased patients without having to touch them directly, and it proved handy for [[ImprovisedWeapon defending the doctor from bandits on the roads]], since they had to travel between plague-stricken towns a lot.

* Nami from ''Manga/OnePiece'' uses a simple staff at the beginning but later replaces it with the Clima Tact in Alabasta.
** Which is perfected into the Perfect Clima-Tact in Enies Lobby and after the time skip, now the Sorcery Clima-Tact.

* Husky in Manga/PlusAnima. He occasionally fights with it (he's good), but it's used more as a punishing staff.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'' Yata switches to using a pipe as a staff from the movie onwards, replacing his previous [[BatterUp baseball bat]]. It even gets ''modified'' during the climax [[spoiler: when Anna becomes the Red King]] to look more like a proper bo staff.

* Quarterstaves in ''Videogame/PillarsOfEternity''. The Weapon Focus talent (+6 accuracy) associated with them also supports Unarmed attacks, making quarterstaves the perfect secondary long-ranged melee option for Monks. The Greenstone Staff, one of the Soulbound items introduced in the first expansion, grants so many special powers in addition to great combat stats that it blurs the line between this and MagicStaff. The first expansion also introduces a new Monk companion Zahua who can make good use of it.

* As mentioned in the ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'' example below, Son Goku of DragonBall wields the Nyoi-Bo. A magical staff that grows and shrinks as the user's will. (Known as the "Power Pole" in the dub.) However, it fades from use in DragonBallZ. Also, Kamesennin (Master Roshi) has a staff of his own, he never seems to really use it for anything though.

* Staves in the world of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' don't tend to count, but Raising Heart's staff form is Nanoha's melee weapon of choice -- unless she's reached the point of using its final form, which can produce a [[BladeOnAStick spear-head]].
