* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': the melee weapon of the Engineer. It is used for [[PercussiveMaintenance hastening building, repairing and upgrading]] the Engineer's buildings. Other uses include hurting people - and the wrench is good at it, hitting critically often because Sentries do a lot of damage - especially removing Spies and their sappers from the Engineer's guns' vicinity. Variants include the Southern Hospitality, implemented with a sharp piece of metal and a spiked handguard, which cause the hit enemy to bleed, the Jag, which hastens building even more but doesn't hurt as much, and the Eureka Effect, which can teleport the Engineer back to his base at the cost of being unable to move his buildings.

** In Fallout 4 in particular the pipe wrench is actually a fairly effective melee weapon at low to mid levels, thanks to the weapon mod system, as it gains mods that not only boost its damage, but also increase its chances of crippling a target or deal extra damage to limbs.
