* 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. * Nami from OnePiece uses a simple staff at the beginning but later replaces it with the Clima Tact in Alabasta.

* 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]].
