* ''Film/RumbleInTheBronx'' subverts this with JackieChan starting out by hitting the GiantMook, [[NoSell to no effect]] - then the TagalongKid passes him a bike helmet, which he whacks the guy's face with, still no effect - then the kid gives him a big wrench. One look at it and the mook caves.

* Around the turn of the 20th century, many manufacurers such as Bemis & Call designed their monkey wrenches to include a hammerhead on the back side of the wrench. They were meant to be multi-purpose tools rather than being overly specialized. They fell out of favor for lighter designs.

* ''Series/TheATeam'', "[Recap/TheATeamS3E20KnightsOfTheRoad Knights of the Road]]". When Tyler's men move in on her, Jenny picks up a wrench and swings at them. It ultimately does no good, and one of the men takes the wrench from her to bust up her and her father's tow truck.

* ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'': the first weapon the player character gets.
** ''VideoGame/SystemShock2'' also has a wrench as a weapon. Where else do you think ''[[SpiritualSuccessor BioShock]]'' got it from?
*** And if you're playing on harder difficulties, it's pretty much the best weapon available.
-->'''Chris Lee's Ultimate [=SS2=] Analysis''': ''You should get intimately familiar with how your wrench works and how to optimally use it against virtually every enemy in the game. You may think I'm kidding, but as I once heard said, System Shock 2 on Impossible isn't a sci-fi/horror first person role-playing game, it's a wrench simulator that lets you simulate hitting all sorts of things with a wrench.''

* Mikazuki Augus from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' adapted a gigantic [[DropTheHammer wrench mace]] for the Gundam Barbatos since the original mace was lost. He also doubles as ImprobableWeaponUser since the wrench mace wasn't supposed to be a weapon, but rather a tool for repairing mobile suits.
