* 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).

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': In the short story "Heorot," Harry is attacked by a lowlife wielding a weighted sock. It's specified as a "dirty gym sock," the implication being that the thug took it off and stuffed something heavy in it just minutes before. Harry is ambushed and smacked in the head, preventing him from concentrating enough to use magic, but he manages to disarm the guy by wrapping the sock around his wizard's staff and yanking it away. Then he gets in a GroinAttack with the other end.
