* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero'', Gilgamesh's [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Sword]] Ea (the Sword of Rupture) is ostensibly a sword, but designed specifically to resemble a subterranean tunnel drill. When charging up, it sucks in wind by [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning rotating like a drill]]. The Wave Motion bit comes in when it rips apart spacetime. A less flashy example is Servant Archer's frequent use of a modified duplicate of Caladbolg as a TrickArrow. His 'Caladbolg II' is dubbed 'the Fake Spiral Sword.'

Gilgamesh's [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Sword]] personal weapon, Ea (the Sword of Rupture) Rupture), is ostensibly called a sword, but designed specifically to resemble a subterranean tunnel drill.drill. Gilgamesh rarely uses it as an actual striking weapon (though he did impale an enemy on it at least once), instead charging up energy and unleashing tremendously powerful magic beams from it. When charging up, it sucks in wind by [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning rotating like a drill]]. The Wave Motion bit comes reason it looks so weird for a "sword" is because it pre-dates humanity, pre-dates the world itself, and indeed pre-dates the very ''concept'' of a sword in when it rips apart spacetime. the first place. In fact, Shirou, whose very existence is deeply tied to swords, cannot get a read on Ea and fails to understand anything about it. It's simply beyond human comprehension.

A less flashy example is Servant Archer's frequent use of a modified duplicate of Caladbolg as a TrickArrow. His 'Caladbolg II' is dubbed 'the Fake Spiral Sword.'' ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' reveals the original Caladbolg looked even more like a drill, mounted on a hilt that made it overall resemble an enormous lance more than a sword.

* ''Anime/D4Princess'': A [[MagicalGirl Magical Girl]] example, where girls called Panzers fight each other with [[ImprobableWeaponUser increasingly silly weapons.]] The main character Doris wields a drill lance, has a [[NiceHat drill on her head]], and even has [[OjouRinglets drill hair]], needless to say, there are quite a few drills here.

* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel'' has the main character wield a MorphWeapon (supposedly a builder's tool) which can be used as a sword, a scissor or... a drill. The first Supermove you learn with him has the drill grow to enormous proportions as he charges through the enemies. [[UpToEleven Taken to the extreme with his Ultra Supermove.]] He even remarks that the drill is every man's fantasy.

* In ''Film/UnderworldBloodWars'', Gregor shoots David in the gut with a bullet tipped with a spinning drill that is also a TrackingDevice. The drill makes it burrow through David's body faster than his HealingFactor can push it out, until Selene manages to cut it out of him.

* 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. 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.
