* ''ComicBook/{{Archie}}'' found himself using a lamp post in this manner, though he didn't intend to. When he was confronted by a collection of oily thugs who called him and Jughead "fun on the run," Jughead signaled Archie to turn in his direction, which resulted in the whole gang being poleaxed. He finishes off the leader by landing the head of the post into his stomach, also unintentionally.

* Used ''against'' Tennyo in the WhateleyUniverse story "Boston Brawl" when the Arch-Fiend rips up a streetlight and lets her have it. On the other hand, smashing Tennyo into the pavement doesn't stop her.

* 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.
