* ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle'': Baron Otto Matic of the Tom Slick segment usually uses a wrench to hit his henchman Clutcher with. It's done so often that, when he creates an Irish alter ego to violate a ban, Clutcher says people will figure out it's him if he keeps doing it[[note]]like the Irish name "Ott O'Matic" wouldn't be a dead giveaway[[/note]] and he reacts by using a different object to hit Clutcher with.
* ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'': In one occasion, Muttley covers his head with a bucket under the belief that Dick Dastardly will hit him bare-handed (if the gloves he wears don't count) as usual but Dastardly uses a wrench instead.

* Adrian Shephard in ''VideoGame/HalfLife1: Opposing Force'' has one (in place of one. It's stronger then Gordon Freeman's [[CrowbarCombatant crowbar]] but swings slower. He later gets a crowbar).combat knife which is weaker but swings faster.



* Since ''VideoGame/{{BioShock}}'' is a {{spiritual successor}} to the ''VideoGame/SystemShock'', it would naturally feature a wrench as the first available weapon. With the right tonics and Plasmids (read: Electrobolt and Insect Swarm), the wrench goes from a weak EmergencyWeapon to the sole weapon you use. The tonics boost damage and swing speed along with other combat bonuses while the Plasmids cause Splicers to be "unaware" and thus grant a '''big''' boost to damage.

The tonics Tonics can boost the wrench's damage, swing speed, and even give it LifeDrain, meaning you can run headlong into a group of enemies swinging wildly and come out with more health than you had going in. There are also Tonics intended for stealthy players that give ''huge'' damage and swing speed along boosts to the wrench on enemies that aren't aware of your presence... except no stealth is actually required, since stunning an enemy with other combat bonuses while either Electro Bolt or Insect Swarm will make the Plasmids cause Splicers to be "unaware" and thus grant a '''big''' boost to damage.game count them as not being aware of you.
