* A celebrated example from comics books: Franchise/{{Superman}} once used the ''Empire State Building'' as a weapon against Doomsday. (It was evacuated beforehand, since this is Superman we're talking about.)
* ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'': Rorschach. Hairspray. Cooking fat. Grappling gun. Toilet (twice). Numerous others. Hurm. Deconstruction. Lethal and gruesome results.
** Similarly, Ozymandias. Ashtray. Fork. Bowl Cover. Place Mat. Less Than Lethal Results. Most of which probably wouldn't work in real life. But then again, it is Ozymandias.
* Likewise, [[JusticeLeague The Question]]. Potted Plant. Computer Monitor. ''Car''.
* Bullseye can use anything as a weapon, usually by throwing it. One example where he is in prison, with his hands restrained. He is using a straw to drink his fresh-squeezed orange juice. Occasionally, he sucks out a pit, and fires it through the straw. To kill flies. But when the ninja show up to kill him, he is all out of pits.
** During another prison stint, he was not restrained, but he was denied access to any hard object. So he created his own ammo: he bashed his face into the concrete floor and spat one of his ''broken teeth'' in a guard's eye.
** At another point when he was beaten to paralysis (it happens to him a lot), he had to be kept on liquid food so that he couldn't throw ''[[DungFu his stool]]'' as a deadly weapon... which Bullseye admits would probably work.
** To take on Venom in ''Sinister Spider-Man'', he lobbed a yap dog, which ended up clamping onto Venom's eye for the entire fight! Even more amazingly, the dog lived through the ordeal.
* SpiderMan's enemy Boomerang, being a former baseball pitcher, can do the same thing as Bullseye (he's just not nearly as good as it) and he displayed this ability during the ''Deadly Foes of Spider-Man'' limited series. However, true to his name, he prefers to use boomerangs.
* Hawkeye from ''UltimateMarvel'' throws his fingernails through the skulls of several guards in an act of desperation. He's later seen firing pieces of rebar out of his bow.
* ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' has been known to use his webbing for offensive situations, such as forming a bat like object out of it, or more famously, Ben Reilly's "impact webbing".
** Spider-Man's used quick drying cement to defeat Hydroman;
** Fire hose on Electro;
** Cathedral bell on Venom;
** Whipped up acid to melt Rhino's suit and Doc Ock's arms;
** Threw a doom bot at Dr. Doom;
** Another, time he used a semi truck on the Juggernaut (didn't work).
** Absorbing Man once got Spider-Man to back off with the threat of tossing a commercial airliner.
* Rhino once bashed the Silver Surfer over the head with a gum ball machine.
* [[KillerRobot The Living Brain]] tried to swat Spider-Man with an unhinged door.
* ''WorldWarHulk'' has a flashback of the Hulk swinging an adamantium statue of himself at Thor.
** ''World War Hulk: X-men'' had Hulk using the wreckage of the jet the X-men just crashed on top of him as a weapon against them.
* TheFlash will sometimes throw as many rocks, bricks, dishes, shoes, whatever on hand in rapid succession.
** And failing at that he might just whip up a dirt storm.
* ComicBook/{{Blade}} once stuck a vampire to the ceiling with an electric screw driver. Points for ramming it through him without turning it on.
* ''ComicBook/ThePunisher''
** In their first encounter, The Punisher managed to defeat the Russian (an ungodly powerhouse who shrugged off a knife to the gut like it was nothing and casually tore apart a pistol with his bare hands) using only a hot pizza and an extremely fat man.
** Creator/GarthEnnis's "ComicBook/WelcomeBackFrank" storyline is full of instances of the Punisher using improvised weapons with lethal results. The best example is when Frank gets trapped by mobsters in the Bronx Zoo without ammo and [[AnimalAssassin uses the animals to kill them off.]] He throws one guy at a snake, dunks another one head first in a piranha tank and leads the rest into a polar bear pit. Unfortunately, the bears are more docile and curious than Frank expects, so he '''[[CrazyAwesome punches]] [[RefugeInAudacity a]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome polar bear]] [[http://overcaffeinated.net/img/punisher2.jpg in the face]]''' to get it angry.
* [[AntMan Hank Pym]] once used [[AppliedPhlebotinum Pym Particles]] to enlarge coins and use them as throwing weapons. He specifically said he was "[[{{Pun}} throwing big money at the problem]]."
* The Tick in one of his early stories as related by the Ninja/victims, "And then he threw a chimney at us!"
* In the ''XWingSeries'' Winter drove off a ronk by [[http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/4379/swrstro209.jpg splashing it]] with "oratay", which seems to be a [[CallARabbitASmeerp coffee analog]]. Even though she had her blaster at her side and had proved able to [[BadassBack shoot without looking]]. Then again, later in the issue we find that [[http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/4169/swrstro217.jpg ronks are extremely allergic to oratay]], so maybe she just wanted to [[MartialPacifist avoid unnecessary killing]].
* ComicBook/{{Gambit}}'s power is custom made for this trope. Aside from his standard playing cards, he's charged a wad of gum, his credit cards, an anchor, poker chips, a bowling ball (stolen from a pair of guys who look suspiciously like [[TheBigLebowski Walter and Donnie]]), and in one particularly memorable scene, a boysenberry pie.
** Does it really count as an improvised weapon, though, if you get to charge it with explosive psychic destruction before you throw it?
* DeathsHead from MarvelComics is willing to improvise weapons from whatever is at hand, including furniture, barbecue skewers, and doors. If the room isn't empty, he's armed.
* Marv from ''SinCity'' has made great use of his surroundings in order to bash enemies' brains in.
* Franchise/{{Tintin}} frequently makes use of this trope to get out of the unusual situations he's thrown into; for example, he knocks a butler out using a phone in ''[[Recap/TintinSecretOfTheUnicorn Secret of the Unicorn]]''.
* The [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] ComicBook/BlackCanary displayed uncanny accuracy with improvised thrown weapons, no matter how improbable or unbalanced - including [[http://img710.imageshack.us/img710/2949/bcthrowingthings1.jpg footwear]], [[http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/4889/bcthrowingthings2.jpg vases]], [[http://img805.imageshack.us/img805/3594/bcthrowingthings3.jpg bulky cameras]], [[http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/3932/bcthrowingthings4.jpg random cutlery, and pies]]. Curiously, while she demonstrates her amazing throwing skills often, neither she nor any other characters ever make particular note of it.
* The Franchise/{{Batman}} story "The Hungry Grass!" involves a bellhop killing a hotel guest with an ashtray.
