* ''StarBlazers'': The Gamilons use a drill missile to penetrate the barrel opening of the WaveMotionGun and destroy the Argo. It probably would've worked too, if it didn't travel at about 2 miles an hour.

* ''KeroroGunsou'': In Episode 197, Keroro gets a virus called the Space Drill, that causes him to sprout a drill in the middle of his forehead and dig holes. The whole episode becomes a lot more awkward when it is revealed the virus is spread by anally drilling unsuspecting victims. * ''KonjikiNoGashBell'' (a.k.a. ''Zatch Bell!''):

* The flash-game ''[[http://www.kongregate.com/games/kupo707/epic-battle-fantasy-3 Epic Battle Fantasy 3]]'', which essentially RUNS on tropes, features several drills, inevitably escorted by [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Gurren Lagann]] references. Two of the player characters can learn a special move that summons a huge drill from below the ground, dealing enormous damage to enemies with buffed defense, and one late-game enemy is a Flying Drill-Bot. Seriously, that's its NAME.

* The arcade (and Dreamcast) game ''Tech Romancer/Kikaioh'', a FightingGame involving giant robots, has the CombiningMecha Twinzam V. In one of its two forms, it has drill arms that can even be used for a FinishingMove... in which the mecha pins its opponent, punches it repeatedly, then drills through its ''face''.

{{Chainsaw|Good}}s aren't the only power tools to be used as weapons in TV Land, and weaponised drills'' are a staple of the SuperRobotGenre, almost as ubiquitous as the RocketPunch. Perhaps it's because they're actually fairly effective against heavily-armoured targets, or perhaps [[MostWritersAreMale the male gender]] finds an inherent appeal in the idea of [[FreudWasRight "penetration"]]. It also puts one in mind of a "spinning" chainsaw, which of course, makes [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning Everything Better]].

Not to be confused with ThisIsNotADrill, [[ShapedLikeItself because it is a drill]]. BavarianFireDrill [[IThoughtItMeant is not an overly specific example of this trope]]. Neither is DrillSergeantNasty, although again, a nasty sergeant armed with a drill would be cool and {{Badass}}. And if you still want to dig and kick ass with one tool, but lack the budget, you can always choose the PowerfulPick or the ShovelStrike instead.
