* Touko Matsudaira from the Light Novel ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'', appears in the TagTeam FightingGame ''[[VideoGame/{{Maribato}} Maribato!]]'' as a playable carácter. Touko fights by summoning drills in her hands, and ram her opponents with them. In general, Touko seems to have an obssession for drills, as most of her normal attacks, specials and even one super are related to drills. Curious enough, if you look carefully during her standng A animation, she actually hits her opponents with one of her MegaTwintails, which you guessed, are [[VisualPun drill-shaped.]]

** ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' Has a Drill Kick thanks to Astro Switch 3 being a Drill.

** ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' Has a Drill Kick thanks to Astro Switch 3 being a Drill. In a Direct-to-Video special only, he gets a special Astro Switch 3 (it's clear) that, when used, fuses the Drill foot attachment with his Rocket arm one to make a rocket-powered drill arm. Considering the series' writer having previously written[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann]], the reference was more obvious than most other examples.

* One of the five types of weapons you can use in ''SummonNight: Swordcraft Story'' (among much more "mundane" weapon types like swords, spears and axes). They were a bit arthritic and had limited attack range compared to the other weapons, but were great at stunlocking enemies and shattering weapons in duels, the latter being ''very'' useful because shattering a weapon grants you the blueprints necessary to construct it later.

* In ''[[VideoGame/TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial 2]]'', drills are a trademark of [[{{Tomboy}} Homura]] [[StudentCouncilPresident Akai]], who's a fan of mecha anime. It's such a trademark of hers, that in a ShoutOut to VideoGame/MetalGearSolid, the game's illustrator even made a joke illustration in one of the official illustrations books of ''[[FanNickname Tokimemo 2]]'' where Homura offers a drill to [[TriggerHappy Revolver]] [[BadassGrandpa Ocelot]] (who's rather annoyed by the girl's antics, so much that Homura's best friend, clearly afraid, tries to restrain her) so he can use it as a replacement for his severed arm.

* A few Franchise/{{Transformers}}, including Menasor from ''[[Anime/TransformersCybertron Cybertron]]'' (not the combiner from ''[[TransformersGeneration1 G1]]''), have these. More turn into drill tanks but lose the ability to use their drills offensively in robot form. Examples are Twin Twist and Nosecone from ''[[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 G1]]'', and Drillhorn from ''TransformersVictory''.

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSun'' subverts this with the [[DrillTank Subterranean APC]], as it cannot use its drill to attack anything (save for crushing infantry) and must rely on its transported infantry to cause damage. Same with ''VideoGame/MetalFatigue'''s Drilltruck which is only used to dig tunnels and capture Hedoth structures. This is also true with the [[PlanetLooters Zuul]] ships with Rip, Rend, and Radiant Bore sections in ''SwordOfTheStars''. These ships look like giant spinning drills in space. However, their only function is "digging" tunnels through [[SubspaceOrHyperspace node space]] and cannot be used as a weapon. Even colliding with another ship with the drill results in no more damage than from a normal collision.
