* In ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'', a building-sized tracked mining drill is used to get Isaac and Ellie into the Sprawl's government sector. While the massive mechanical beast is too slow and ponderous to directly score Necromorph kills, there's still blood everywhere due to it shredding thick layers of [[TheCorruption Corruption tissue]] while digging its way through the sector's foundations.

* Standard drills in ''{{Mekton}}'' are an armour-piercing melee weapon with a low accuracy. ''Mekton Plus'' lets you build ones that can be anywhere up to "pinpoint" accurate.
* In the ''MechWarrior Dark Age'' click-base game, industrial machines can use their civilian equipment as reasonably capable melee weapons. This includes [[ChainsawGood forestry saws]], [[CrazyAwesome combine harvesters]], and of course, mining drills. The [=MiningMech=] [=IndustrialMech=] uses rock cutters and mining drills as its primary means of attack. Aesthetically subverted, however, in that the drill is not a traditional cone-shaped drill, but more like [[http://www.sarna.net/wiki/File:Dig_Lord.jpg a trifecta of smaller drills mounted together]] (left arm; the right arm has a rock cutter, essentially a mining saw). With ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' caught up to the Dark Age/Age of Destruction clicky game, time wise, canon stats for the [[FreudWasRight Violator]] Battlemech have been released, making it the first official Battlemech to mount a mining drill as a weapon. It's explained that the mech was actually built for the gladiator games on Solaris VII, where it's popular to mount exotic melee weapons and other AwesomeButImpractical equipment on mechs because crowds like it.

* Benny "I'm gonna screw you", the cab driver from the original ''Film/TotalRecall1990'', who is about to use a tunnel drilling machine to crush Douglas Quaid, until Quaid grabs a hand-held drill and cuts into to the operator's cab and does unto Benny before Benny does unto him. And with [[{{Narm}} that accent of Arnie's]], we have the immortally classic line:

* ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}: Terror From The Deep'' widened the operatives melee arsenal from the previous game (which was limited to the [[StunGuns Stun Rod]]) with a series of oversized power drills. Very efficient at dispatching armored critters, too.

** Edgar of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has a Drill amongst his Tools skill set. And it penetrates defense. In the original Japanese version, a GoodBadBug resulted in the Drill being the best '''''headgear equip''''' available to your characters. This was [[MythologyGag referenced]] in ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'', where [[AscendedGlitch a drill was the headgear part of the 'Machine' equipment set]].

** In the second season, the rather AxCrazy Knight of Rounds, Luciano Bradley, pilots a Knightmare with an arm-mounted [[LaserBlade laser]] [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot drill lance]].
** When he tries using it against [[ActionGirl Kallen]] (who he had threatened to rape earlier in the season), she ends up [[FreudWasRight breaking his drill to little bits]].
** The Byakuen from the spinoff story ''Oz the Reflection'' has a drill (resembling a modern power drill more than the ''Gurren Lagann'' variety) among its variety of optional weapons.

*** There's an official {{Yonkoma}} where Kallen is introduced to her Guren Mk-II and says that it should have a drill instead of its microwave-emitting claw hand. While arguing with Zero, she even drops the famous phrase "A drill is a man's romance!"
** The Byakuen from the spinoff story ''Oz the Reflection'' has a drill (resembling a modern power drill more than the ''Gurren Lagann'' variety) among its variety of optional weapons. When the Byakuen is being repaired, Orpheus pilots a custom Glasgow that carries a combination drill[=/=][[GatlingGood Gatling gun]] weapon which Oz's teammate Zi Dian nicknames the "Mince Maker".
