* In ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', Paul batters his way up the steps to the Heart of Evil while swinging a six-foot length of fallen rock pillar. Does a nice job of clearing off the undead in the way... until he reaches the intangible wraiths.
* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', Paul does this with a convenient log when a bunch of dirt golems attack him. Unlike other examples of this trope, the log doesn't last very long because he's so strong, and [[PowerIncontinence so not-good with his strength]], that he rapidly squeezes the log into pieces, though it holds out long enough to take care of the golems. (At least until the guy making them starts making more.)

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': During [[TheBigGuy Chad's]] first fight against a Hollow (which he can't even see at the time), he rips a telephone pole out of the ground and sweeps it around until it hits something. This is ''before'' he gains any powers whatsoever; he's just that BadAss.

* 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.)
