* ''Film/{{Mallrats}}'': "Phase one: First you take a run at La Fours with a sock full of quarters. I'd do it, but I pulled my back out humping your mom last night. [[VerbalTic Nootch]]. Okay, you clock him on his headpiece and knock his ass out cold. That's when phase two kicks in.

* Referenced in the first ''{{Starfist}}'' novel: as a child from a lower-class background sent to an elite school, Joseph Dean decided to take matters into his own hands when tormented by a bully over his EmbarrassingMiddleName. He calmly and efficiently laid the bully's head open with "a field-expedient cosh made from a gym sock and a chunk of broken concrete," which got him kicked out of the school but also flagged as a potential recruit for military service.

* A variant occurs in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2'' where the students have to solve a murder mystery within a murder mystery involving a missing school swimsuit, a broken fish tank and a victim with a bashed-in skull. At Mioda's offhanded suggestion, TheHero figures that the culprit wrapped the tank's gravel in the swimsuit and tied it into a knot so that they could disguise the swimsuit's going missing as a random pervert sneaking onto the campus (also a convenient RedHerring to lead the police off their trail).
