* 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.

* The point of Franchise/RockRaiders, as well as its SpiritualSuccessor: Toys/LEGOPowerMiners. Though sometimes [[FrickinLaserBeams lasers]] were used in place of drills in the former line.
