* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', Marneus Calgar (The [[CanonSue Ultramarines']] chapter master) once picked up a ''Necron Pylon'' (read: a crescent-shaped sttructure about 10 times his size usually used as an artillery piece) and used it to devastate hordes of Necrons that were swarming him.

* In ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'', Superman uses a street lamp on Goku. Needless to say, Goku is barely scratched and Superman is still nowhere near using his full strength at that point.

* {{GURPS}}: Supers (4th edition) has rules for using such polearms, based on their length and how hard it is to hold them in hand.
* Prometheans in ''TabletopGame/PrometheanTheCreated'' can learn refinements specializing in making the body stronger, allowing them to pick up objects as though their strength rating was twice what it actually is. A second refinement lets them use such objects as melee or thrown weapons. (Two further refinements increase this effect to ''triple'' strength -- for those times when they really need to hit people with a minivan.)

** In one [[ComicBook/XMen X-men]] comic, X-men are trapped in another dimention and forced to take part in a large battle. Colossus (for who the whole arc is a serious case of ItsPersonal) goes to battle swinging a tree. The narration lampshades how horrified he would be at the damage if he wasn't so angry.

* The [[GiantMook Unclean Giant]] from ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' wields a small tree for a club. Its main attack, Treebranch Smackdown, is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, and is easily one of the most damaging attacks from a non-boss. Woe betide thee if it {{crit|icalHit}}s, because even a fully healed tank-ish character like the Leper or the Crusader can be sent to [[LastChanceHitPoint Death's Door]]. Mortality clarified in a single strike, indeed.
