* 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]].

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.

* A HeroSystem supplement magazine once gave instructions/stats for running "Hack Writing" as a (none-too-serious) Martial Art. It originated when an ancient messenger, facing execution for being the bearer of bad news, decided to take someone with him and used his stylus as a weapon. Organizations such as The Brotherhood of the Pen use specially-crafted writing implements designed for maximum damage. Special maneuvers include "Cut & Paste" ("The writer cuts his victim's legs out from under him and then pastes him one."); "Narrative Hook" ("The writer simply reaches out and grabs his target."); and "Writer's Block", a defensive measure. ("The first maneuver taught to hack writers. Some are so skilled with it that it's all they do.")
