The use of bones as an Improvised Weapon and/or Improvised Armour. Dem Bones may be involved.

Examples:

Anime and Manga
  • Kimimaro from Naruto
  • Bleach: various Arrancar, such as Nel with a skull helmet.

Comic Books
  • Marrow from X-men.
    • Wolverine when he has his bone claws instead of his Adamantium claws counts, as well.

Film

Oral Tradition
  • Samson, the original badass of The Bible, once wiped out a thousand Philistines with the jawbone of an ass, this making this Older Than Dirt.

Tabletop Games
  • Dungeons & Dragons. Adventure A4 In The Dungeons of The Slave Lords starts with the PCs in the title location, stripped of all weapons and equipment. If they search carefully they can find a human skull (usable as a thrown weapon) and a human thigh bone (usable as a club).

Video Games
  • The first "weapon" you get in Secret of Evermore is a large bone.
  • Pokémon: Cubone and Marowak, which use bone attacks such as Bone Club, Bonemerang, and Bone Rush. Cubone in particular wears the skull of its dead mother.
  • Halo: skulls can be used as melee weapons.
  • Skull helmets in Diablo II.
  • In AdventureQuest Worlds, your character can use bone based weapons. I think they can also use an actual bone at one point.
  • In Phantom Brave, you can use both leg bones and skulls as weapons.
