* There's a [[{{Omake}} fake preview]] in one of the ''{{Hyakko}}'' episodes which makes it seem the next episode will be something more along ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' lines than ''Hyakko'' -- including a scene where Amagasa-sensei holds the students at gunpoint until Touma knocks the gun out of his hand with a blow from a book.

** Some cartoons featuring a cat waking a character up at night have the character throwing a book (say, ''The Thin Man'') at ThatPoorCat, but the book's ''sequel'' is thrown back at him (thus, ''The Thin Man Returns''). Such cartoons include ''Porky's Badtime Story'' and its remake, ''Tick Tock Tuckered''.

* ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters''. The Clerics, while in the front row, will hit the opponent with their holy book. A useless attack, but worth watching purely for a good laugh. If you don't put your clerics in the front row to see this in action, fear not, because a Cleric Gatekeeper at Zazana uses this same attack to keep a noisome intruder from going into town -- one who goes by the name of [[ButtMonkey Odie]].

Note that this is for books being used to physically attack. For books used offensively by casting spells from it, see SpellBook. For the paper of books being used as a supernatural weapon, see PaperMaster. For books with dangerous words in them, see BrownNote. For books thrown by the reader due to the atrocious quality of their content, see DarthWiki/WallBanger. For the ''other'' meaning of "throw the book at them",[[note]]Which means "Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law"[[/note]] see the courtroom tropes on the CrimeAndPunishmentTropes page (it's been known to overlap, especially in comedies and especially when a JokerJury is involved).

Added DiffLines:
* ''VideoGame/DisgaeaD2'' adds a new class of weapons: Books. Books are Int-based weapons, but while Staves are used to enhance the range and area of spells, Books are better for straight-up damage and have weapon skills.
