|That's Just Not Cricket|
Using a cricket bat as a weapon, rather than its intended usage.
Needs a Better Description. Often in melees one sees combatants using baseball bats. One of the rarer melee weapons, however, but just as effective, is the baseball bat's British cousin, the cricket bat. Having a flat surface, it can also be used effectively as a paddle. Examples:
- In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, one of Casey Jones' weapons is a cricket bat. Lampshaded by Raphael in the first TMNT movie.
- In Shaun of the Dead, Shaun uses a cricket bat against the zombies.
- Zombie-slayer Katherine Blackmoore of The League of S.T.E.A.M.'s primary weapon is a cricket bat. (Perhaps a shout-out to Shaun of the Dead.)
