* In ''ComicBook/DeathVigil'', Starlock is Clara's veilripper, and it takes the form of a quill pen. Clara finds out that she can draw wherever she wants with it, but she later finds out its true potential to [[ThinkingUpPortals Think Up Portals]] and tap into and fix other people's memories (although the latter ability is hinted to be 'her'' ability, not the veilripper's). In addition, like all veilrippers, it can be used to seal necromancers' powers.

You know, they weren't joking when they said the pen was mightier than the sword. Or the pencil. Or the paintbrush. In the proper hands ''any'' writing tool can become [[ImprovisedWeapon a truly deadly weapon]], and earns extra badass points for the user at the same time - especially if used against an opponent with one of those piddling "real" weapons.

Paint brushes being used to write spells and {{curse}}s on opponents are common in eastern works; most popular depictions of this are derived from [[http://traditions.cultural-china.com/en/211Traditions9846.html a Chinese folktale]] about a boy who could bring paintings to life when he signed them. An evil emperor would force the boy into drawing him vast riches and he would instead conjure a dragon or tsunami to kill the emperor, depending on the telling.
