* TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}} features not a pen but an iron brush. It is a weaponized scholar's brush in an Asian-themed setting, where any person of refinement or education is expected to know some calligraphy. It's really not a great weapon mechanically aside from being easily concealed, but it can kill and be enchanted, plus a clever player can certainly find uses for a weapon which allows them to appear to be an unarmed scholar or aristocrat.

* When Viggo is impressing on Iosef just how deadly John is in ''Film/JohnWick'', he mentions he [[OnceKilledAManWithANoodleImplement once saw John kill three men in a bar with a pencil]]. The improbability of this is lampshaded by Abram in ''Film/JohnWickChapter2'' ("A ''pencil''. How the fuck do you do that?!"), and later in the film, John kills two assassins with a pencil when they attack him for the seven million dollar bounty on him posted by [[spoiler:Santino]].
