->''"This weapon's a man, man!"''
-->-- ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave''

WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer, everything begins to look like a nail. And when all you have is a group of enemies... Taking the ImprovisedWeapon trope to heart, hard-pressed combatants will use not just anything, but any'''body''' around as weapons.

Two common variants exist. In the first, regular individuals may choose to use a body part as a club, the source of that body part depending heavily on the setting:
* Neutral: Certain specific locations, like morgues or battlefields, will inevitably be littered with limbs, making it easy to locate one.
* Enemy: Particularly vicious characters may choose to forcibly dismember opponents, then attack them with it in a fit of sadistic humor. Of course, it's easier if your opponents tend to fall apart spontaneously, like {{Zombie|Apocalypse}}s or [[DemBones Skeletons]], or are MadeOfPlasticine.
* Self: If you're not particularly worried about the loss of your own body parts (hint: being a HumongousMecha or a HollywoodCyborg helps), you may, in a last-ditch situation, choose to use your own limb as a weapon.

Alternatively, characters gifted with SuperStrength may eschew the dismemberment completely and use an entire body as a weapon. This is also an alternative for mechs of the appropriate size in relation to the body being used. Of course, you'd have to be nuts (or [[BashBrothers really, REALLY]], [[BattleCouple trusting]] / [[NighInvulnerable durable]]) to let anyone do that to you, which is why most "weapons" are either dead or unconscious - or will be by the time you're done. May be combined with MetronomicManMashing if you're attacking both the person you're hitting and the person you're hitting ''with''.

ShamuFu is a SubTrope where the body in question is a fish or some other marine animal. The FastballSpecial is another subtrope specific to superheroing where a powerhouse throws a (usually) willing partner at a target, at which point the partner's unique abilities come into play. For the un-improvised version see EquippableAlly.

Has nothing to do with a [[Franchise/StarWars certain general]] or HumanWeapon.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/UshioAndTora'' had an interesting variation, where Tora swung Ushio at an enemy, at which point Ushio took the Beast Spear to them.
* Arlequin in ''Manga/KarakuriCircus'' uses a puppet's left arm to stab people with.
* Quant from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' at one point throws [[TheSmartGuy Ship Leesoo]] against [[InformedAbility First Emperor]] and knocks him out cold.
* In ''Manga/RosarioToVampire,'' [[spoiler: Tsukune]] picked up one Outcast monster by the skull and used him for a vicarious drop-kick against his friend.
** Shown [[http://www.mangareader.net/320-22369-40/rosario-vampire/chapter-20.html here]].
* In ''[[Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi]]'', one of the masters fought off an island full of heavily-equipped opposing forces by [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/8511/historys-strongest-disciple-kenichi_ch251_by_nerieru-scans/13 using them as giant shurikens]]. Arguably also a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome CMOA]].
* In ''[[Anime/KotetsuJeeg Kotetsushin Jeeg]]'', a MonsterOfTheWeek rips Jeeg's arm off, and an [[HotBlooded enraged]] Kenji responds by stealing it back and wielding it like a club. This example is actually [[JustifiedTrope justified]], since Jeeg is a modular robot built around magnetic joints and can thus drop, replace, and retrieve limbs easily. On top of that, the shoulder had a couple of fins which extend into blades, suggesting that it was '''meant''' to be used this way.
* ''{{Mazinger}}'':
** In ''Anime/MazingerZ'', [[{{Robeast}} Mechanical Beast]] Genocyder F9 had troubles shattering the HomeBase's DeflectorShield, so it ripped its own arm off and threw it against the barrier. The ensuing explosion succesfully destroyed the energy shield, and Genocyder's [[MacrossMissileMassacre missiles]] pummeled the place flat.
** In ''Anime/ShinMazinger'', Zeus gets his arm cut off by Hades. When he sees MazingerZ use a RocketPunch later in the episode, he's so impressed that he picks up his own severed arm and ''throws it'' while shouting "ROCKETTO PAAAANCH!!"
** In ''ShinMazingerZero'', ''[[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]]'' has his arm ripped off in the first story arc. Like a last resort, he does pick it up and RocketPunch his enemy with it.
* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam'', Shiro Amada rips off his own Gundam's disabled arm and uses it as a club. This move is one of the Gundam's most iconic moments (along with its WorfBarrage), and can be re-created in the ''VideoGame/GundamVsSeries'' (though there it shoves the arm back onto its elbow for continued use).
** The eponymous [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]] is made up of a [[EjectorSeat Core Fighter]] and [[CombiningMecha replaceable modules for the upper and lower body]]. LaResistance manufactures the modules in bulk, so throughout the series we see Usso firing off damaged modules as gigantic missiles and then calling for a replacement.
*** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Gundam SEED Destiny]]'' {{homage}}d this in Shinn's battle with the Freedom Gundam; when the Impulse gets decapitated, he ejects the torso module at the Freedom, gets a replacement, and then shoots the damaged one with his beam rifle.
*** Likewise, the Bawoo from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'' is a TransformingMecha that splits into upper and lower halves, the lower being remote controlled. The [[AllThereInTheManual official info]] says that the Neo Zeons looked into the idea of packing the leg module full of high explosives and using it as an enormous missile, but considered it too wasteful.
** In ''Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam'', one of Tobia's more memorable bits of ImprovFu involves grabbing an enemy machine by its SnakeSword limbs and swinging it like a literal EpicFlail, before throwing it bodily into one of its teammates. This move, like the ''08th MS Team'' example, made its way into the ''VideoGame/GundamVsSeries''.
* In ''{{Manga/Gunnm}}: Last Order'', Alita allows one of her own arms to be cut off, specifically so she can use it as a weapon to increase her reach.
* In ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'', Asuka throws one of the Mass-production Evas through a wall, then pulls it out and throws it into another. It doesn't work, so she punches through both of them.
* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' contains an example in the first between the demon Zodd and the main characters, Guts and Griffith. Griffith, after Zodd transforms into his monstrous true form, chops Zodd's arm clean off with one slice ([[ImplausibleFencingPowers somehow]]). Zodd then promptly picks up his severed arm and uses it to smack Griffith down, knocking him unconscious.
** In ''Berserk: The Abridged Series'', Guts, after seeing this, comments,
---> "Did you just beat him with your own arm? That is hardcore! Seriously, kill me right now, that is the coolest thing that I will ''ever'' see!"
** [[CombatPragmatist Guts does this a bit]]: during the Eclipse tore of an opponents horn and used it as a spear to kill over a dozen apostles and when breaking Griffith out of the Tower of Punishment he uses a corpse as a shield before throwing it at his attackers.
* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' Kamina once [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan smacked some sense into Simon]] by having the Gurren throw one of its arms at the Lagann. It may or may not have already been completely detached by the savage beating it just took.
** Often the Gurren Lagann does a combination of this and a FastballSpecial when it throws the Lagann so it can reach an enemy; since the Lagann [[CombiningMecha forms the head of the Gurren Lagann]], it was actually ripping its own head off and throwing it.
* Kengamine Nagi from ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' recently [[spoiler:''ripped off his own arm'' and used it to attack Hibana with the Branch of Sin]] after she disabled him.
* In ''Manga/ToLoveRu'', while trapped in a haunted house and confronted with the prospect of being raped, an adrenaline and fear-fueled Haruna picks up Rito and tosses him into the monster.
** Haruna's typical reaction to anything threatening is to pick up Rito and use him as a hammer. On one occasion, it [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/to_love_ru/v02/c016/11.html creates a tornado]].
* In the third episode of ''Anime/DaiGuard'', the Dai-Guard mecha rips off one of its own forearms to use as an improvised RocketPunch against the MonsterOfTheWeek. Widely considered a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.
* The Phoenix Emperor Saffron, Ranma's final enemy in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', could [[HealingFactor regenerate from any injury]] by means of his own flame (being frozen solid prevented this, though.) Therefore, he had no trouble whatsoever ripping off [[WingedHumanoid his own wings]], setting them ablaze, and hurling them at his enemies as [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang deadly flaming boomerangs]].
** Two more conventional applications of the trope appear in the [[MartialArtsAndCrafts Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics]] and [[MartialArtsAndCrafts Martial Arts Shogi]] challenges (the latter of which only occurs in the anime). In the first, Ranma makes use of the fact P-chan has been chained to his (currently her) wrist to turn him into an impromptu flail, as the rules of the match strictly prohibit bare hands and feet. In the second, Akane, at one point, grabs Ranma and spins around wildly, using him like a human flail to defeat a swarm of FacelessGoons.
** During said Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics match, Kodachi counters an attack from Ranma by grabbing her own brother from the audience with her ribbon and flinging him at the table Ranma was tossing.
** Another variation rakes place in the Martial Arts and Ice Skating match. Whenever Mikado and Azusa fight, a good part of their tactics come from Mikado grabbing Azusa by the arms and spinning her so she sort-of becomes an extension of his body: At times he slides her on the icy ground so she can trip the rivals with her legs; at others, he spins her around in the air to kick the rivals in the face...
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Edward regularly uses his brother Alphonse's head as a throwing weapon. Since Al is a soul bound into a massive suit of armor, he really doesn't need his head, but it irritates him nonetheless.
** Ed also comically clangs Ling in the face with his broken off automail arm.
** When Alphonse fights [[spoiler:Pride and Kimblee]] he gets his ([[AnimatedArmor metal]]) hand cut off but then instantly grabs it and ''turns it into a sword''
* In {{Manga/Guyver}}, Akito as Gigantic Dark looses a leg when fighting a pair of Zoalords. Later on he remotely controls the severed limb to fly through the air and smack into one of his opponents before reattaching it.
* Grabbing an ally and tossing him or her at an enemy is a favorite tactic of [[{{Jerkass}} Hamel]] in ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln''. "Tron Bomber!" "Oboe Launcher!" "Flute Missile!" Said ally usually screams bloody murder all the way.
* The climax of the ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' {{light novel|s}} ''Drugs and Dominoes:'' After getting his arm blown off by a high gauge revolver point blank, Luck Gandor picks up his own shattered limb and tears [[spoiler:Gustavo]]'s throat apart with its jagged, broken bones -- After which he calmly reattaches the severed arm ([[GoodThingYouCanHeal good thing for that immortality, huh?]]), gives a pithy BondOneLiner, checks to see if the resident [[TheIngenue Ingenue]] is alright...[[PostVictoryCollapse and then promptly passes out from the pain]].
* In ''Manga/HayateCrossBlade'', when Hayate is knocked out by a drug, Ayana uses her body as a 'human sword' in their duel against two other girls. ''She actually wins this way too.'' [[spoiler:She uses this to defeat Ensuu as well.]]
* Not strictly a weapon, but there is a [[{{Meido}} Maid]] Guitar in the opening of ''Manga/MariaHolic''.
* In the TraintopBattle of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', [[CuteBruiser Subaru]] starts her attack by smashing the first [[MechaMooks Gadget Drone]] she comes across then chucking its damaged frame at a second Gadget Drone.
* Done at last once in ''{{Manga/Bokurano}}''.
* [[HealingFactor Deneve]] in ''{{Manga/Claymore}}'' "blocks" extremely fast growing parasitic spikes with one arm. After seeing the first breath of her new attachments, she rips off her arm and impales the originator of said spikes' forehead with it. Not that that inconveniences either of them for more than a second. [[http://www.onemanga.com/Claymore/95/08/ This chapter probably has the highest but per second count in the series]].
* In an early case of ''Manga/MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'', two officers are arguing in the middle of an investigation. What does Neuro do to shut them up? Use [[ButtMonkey Yako]] [[http://www.onemanga.com/Majin_Tantei_Nougami_Neuro/27/07/ as a club]] and whack them both. Also used as one of his standard attacks in [[JumpSuperStars Jump Ultimate Stars]].
* In ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'', [[spoiler: Tobi]] got his arm infected by TheVirus, so he [[LifeOrLimbDecision breaks it off before it spreads]], drops it on the ground, then kicks it at his other opponent (who dodged it since TheVirus is spread by touch) which leaves him open so he could [[spoiler:suck him into another dimension]].
** A while early, [[spoiler:Pain]] pulled a weird one on Naruto: after he [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled]] [[spoiler:Fukasaku]], he throws his corpse at Naruto which distracted him long enough to pull him in and pin him down.
** Thanks to the use of [[MesACrowd Shadow Clones,]] the title character has sometimes done this ''with himself.''
** Kinkaku likewise drop kicks his arm into Darui in response to him cutting it off, which, thanks to the artifact on his arm, made Darui's soul come out [[PullingThemselvesTogether right before the arm reattaches]] because of the jutsu Kinkaku was [[spoiler:brought back to life with.]]
** When Killer Bee grabbed A with a [[CombatTentacles tentacle]] to let Naruto get past him, A grabbed the tentacle and swung Bee into Naruto like an EpicFlail.
** During the Jinchuuriki fight, Naruto takes this UpToEleven, with ''Grievous Harm with a '''{{Kaiju}}'''''.
* ''{{Manga/Gintama}}'' has a whole storyline where the characters end up in a RPG and use the stock RPG [=NPCs=] (and/or their corpses) as weapons.
** Even in non-virtual situations, the characters have no problems using each other as weapons. [[http://www.onemanga.com/Gintama/114/18/ Show 'em]] [[http://www.onemanga.com/Gintama/114/19/ Kagura]].
* During the [[FishPeople Arlong Arc]] in ''Manga/OnePiece'', Luffy grabbed the seamonstercow Momoo and used it to clear out all the {{Mooks}} prior to engaging the QuirkyMinibossSquad.
** And Zoro tried to use Sogeking as a sword. ItMakesSenseInContext.
** More recently, Van Der Dekken turned several human {{mooks}} into {{homing projectile}}s to be used against Shirahoshi.
** In the Ice Hunter Arc filler arc, Salchow uses his wife as a projectile (He throws her with her ice skates first).
* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' has done this a few times. Once, Naga had done something called a 'Baker' strike by throwing a baker at a demon. Lina has thrown Naga, and Zelgadis thrown Lina, but neither of those cases were primarily for damage, more to distract the foe they'd just chucked the person at.
* In one episode of ''[[Anime/JungleWaItsumoHaleNochiGuu Hare+Guu]]'', Hare gets pressed into service as a projectile in an [[EscalatingWar escalating game of dodgeball]] between Gupta and Guu. A relatively less violent cases of the trope, since Hare is both intact and conscious, but he is understandably dismayed.
* In chapter 307 of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' Gon [[spoiler: gets his arm ripped off]]. He later takes it and [[spoiler: stabs a headless Pitou through the torso with his own ripped off arm to pin him down]].
** Earlier, Uvogin takes a bite out of an opponent's head, and spits out a fragment of his skull with enough force to hit and kill another guy.
* In ''Manga/DragonBall Z'', after Vegeta tries to attack Android #17, #18 grabs him by the leg from behind and slams him into Trunks.
* When a Great White Shark attacks Nagi, Manga/HayateTheCombatButler beats it senseless ... with another shark, which had been trying to devour him (and which is big enough that it could've swallowed him whole).
* Perhaps not a straight example, but it counts: When environmental sources of throwable projectiles aren't available, [[Manga/ElfenLied Nana]] resorts to flinging her ''detachable prosthetic limbs''.
* Done by Briareos in the 2004 ''{{Manga/Appleseed}}'' film; he grabs an assassin-roid's arm, rips it off, and bashes her in the face with it.
* The ''{{Anime/Patlabor}}'' movie has Oota running out of ammo fighting rogue [[AMechByAnyOtherName Labors]] and briefly using the arm of one he ripped off to destroy some of the others.
* Subverted '''spectacularly''' in ''{{Manga/Beelzebub}}'' when Oga attempts this with Arandron. Considering Oga's [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower insane strength]] and [[MachoCamp Adrandon's build]], you'd have though that this was a surefire combination...[[http://www.mangareader.net/beelzebub/106/7 until his opponent simply punches him out of Oga's hands.]]
* In ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'', Berserket quickly replaces his missing stone axe with [[TheChewToy Lancer]]. He manages to wield Lancer so effectively that the spearman in question literally becomes his Noble Phantasm, [[http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/209/474/1320397102202.jpg stat sheet and all]].
* Not harmful per se, but during the Magic World arc of MahouSenseiNegima, Fate's [[spoiler: arm is cut off during a fight. He then proceeds to console a member of his AmazonBrigade with the severed arm, in a rare moment of ComicallySerious for a character who normally comes off as a SpearCounterpart ReiAyanamiExpy]].
* Tsuchiya throws a thug at some others twice in ''Manga/{{Holyland}}'' chapter 144.
* The robot that comes out of Ninamori's head in ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' jacks control of her body and uses her as a weapon.
* During the Grand Magic Games in ''Manga/FairyTail'' Natsu does this to Sting using Rogue at one point.
* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'':
** During Training, Annie puts Eren in a hold he can't get out of, Mikasa throws Reiner at her to separate them. [[spoiler: The Armored Titan]] tries this by flinging [[spoiler: other Titans]] at some escaping soldiers, they don't hit them, but they do block their escape.
** Earlier, the Rogue Titan [[AnArmAndALeg has lost its arms]], so it grabs a nearby Titan with its teeth and starts using it as a weapon.
* One memetic scene from ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' has Cure Lovely snatch up two [[{{Mooks}} Choiarks]] and pummel a [[MonsterOfTheWeek Saiark]] with them like they were boxing gloves. She was given the FanNickname "Cure Not-So-Lovely" for that scene.
* ''Hilariously'' used in Manga/{{Bleach}}, when [[spoiler: Zombie!Charlotte]] tosses [[spoiler: Zombie!Bambietta]] at [[spoiler: Mayuri Kurotsuchi]]. It would seem that this is an accident since [[spoiler: Charlotte tosses Bambietta aside and into a building when she attacks him]], but his reply when [[spoiler: Mayuri]] points out that he was almost hit confirms the trope:
--> [[spoiler: Charlotte]]: "[[BlatantLies Oops, my hand slipped ~]]"

[[folder:ComicBooks]]
* DC Universe examples: The only good thing to come of Mary Marvel's FaceHeelTurn, when in ''CountdownToFinalCrisis'', she lays the beatdown on Donna Troy with Kyle Rayner, as seen above.
** [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], even as he admitted liking the scene, still listed it in his "Top Fifteen Worst Moments of Countdown", dubbing it a mood breaker.
** Also, in ''Trinity'', {{Franchise/Superman}} grabs the ankle of his [[MirrorUniverse anti-matter]] [[EvilTwin counterpart]], [=Ultraman=] (not to be confused with the more famous ''tokusatsu'' character), and swings him face-first into the Franchise/WonderWoman analogue, Superwoman.
* A [[WartimeCartoon WWII-era]] ''Cat-Man'' featured the eponymous hero [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=35%3Apropaganda-index&id=869%3Amore-cat-man&Itemid=24 beating up a German soldier with a Japanese one]].
* In his arc in the post-''ComicBook/ZeroHour'' ''{{Comicbook/Legion of Super-Heroes}}'', Mordru [[http://www.minorvariation.net/comics/Magno/sd/L482.jpg hit Star Boy with M'Onel,]] made especially notable by the fact that M'Onel is a CaptainErsatz of {{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} ComicBook/{{Superboy}}.
** Also [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arm_Fall_Off_Boy Arm Fall Off Boy]] will rip his ''own'' arm off and beat you with the wet end.
** In the second issue of ''Comicbook/DemonKnights'', VandalSavage beats a dinosaur to death [[http://comicrunway.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/demonnights-neves3.jpg with another dinosaur.]]
* In the CultClassic comic book series ''{{ComicBook/Hitman}}'', {{Etrigan}} uses the corpse of a dead mob boss to beat up an alien parasite who interrupted the funeral.
* "You realize you're talking to a man with a human head in his hands who has every intention of using it to beat these people to death?" -Jack Hawksmoor, ''Comicbook/TheAuthority''
* In ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'', if Obélix does not punch a Roman soldier (or a pirate), he will grab him by the foot and start hammering the others around him.
* In an issue of the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' comic, in the ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' portion, Princess Lana is framed for Mother Brain's crimes ([[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking including a plethora of unpaid parking tickets]]) and Samus is arrested for defending her (the real judge having been replaced by Ridley) and both are sent to different parts of a prison colony. While the Princess is off defending the rights of prisoners, Samus defends herself with this trope when attacked.
* In ''SecretInvasion'' Canadian goddess Snowbird killed the Skrull god [[PunctuationShaker Kly'bn]] with the spine of the slain [[EldritchAbomination Demogorge]].
* One of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'s trademark attacks is the "FastballSpecial", where Colossus throws {{Wolverine}}, claws outstretched, at the enemy. Other characters have done it too and called it such; at least once Nocturne possessed somebody in this manner.
** In a [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of Funny]] [[TheComicallySerious for a character not known for his sense of humor]], Colossus once cut short an argument with Emma Frost by throwing her diamond body at a villain, taking to heart Cyclops' advice to do something unexpected.
--->'''Emma''': You can't just throw people at all your problems, dear.
* ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' did one, while he tried to protect Wolf-Man, who was framed in murder, from being taken by superhero team Guardians Of The Globe - he just grabbed their leader's head and beat the rest of them with him, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome casually tossing him over the horizon when he was done.]]
* Comicbook/ThePunisher: "Looks like they sent two hitmen after me. It's a lot of work resisting the urge to beat the big one to death with the little one."
** When fighting The Russian, Franchise/SpiderMan tries to get involved, and gets effortlessly tossed aside for his troubles. Punisher uses the unconscious Spider-Man to help throw the Russian off the Empire State Building.
--> '''Spider-Man''': ''[waking up]'' "...what happened?"
--> '''The Punisher''': [[BondOneLiner "We had a team-up. You were great."]]
* In the ''Comicbook/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' comic ''On the Road'', Sam grabs Max by the ankles and swings him at a biker, knocking him off his motorcycle. Max finds the experience refreshing.
* In issue 3 of the Franchise/{{Transformers}} comic mini-series "Headmasters", Fortress Maximus throws Skullcruncher (in beast mode) into Scorponok to throw off his aim.
** Also, an issue of Transformers where Apeface has his arm ripped off while in gorilla mode. He proceeds to pummel everything in sight with it.
* {{Deadpool}} once threw Alani aka [[Characters/XMenOtherTeams Loa]] at a bunch of BackFromTheDead zombie Acolytes. GrievousHarmWithABody is a lot more effective if said body has the power to dissolve matter on contact.
* This technique is employed by Thorn Harvestar in the first volume of ''Comicbook/{{Bone}}'', where she uses Fone Bone to head-butt an oncoming rat creature. Naturally, Fone is not amused by her actions.
* In ''ComicBook/DarkwingDuck'', F.O.W.L.'s giant mecha, The Walrus, freezes Steelbeak and Femme Appeal with a stasis beam. Then, for absolutely no discernible reason whatsoever, it grabs Femme and uses her as a ''sword'' to fight Darkwing... who then grabs Steelbeak and parries. Neither of the two F.O.W.L. agents was amused.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' crossover fanfiction ''Fanfic/AShadowOfTheTitans'', the Titans are watching footage of the AxCrazy villain Gadjo's early known career. We don't see or hear much of it, but at one point he's apparently "whaling on zombies ''with'' a zombie".
* In FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi, Marda, the troll chieftess, uses the body parts of several of Mercury's reaperbots to dismember their fellows during the stress-testing portion of their development.
* In ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'', Yuki invokes this trope in the first CurbStompBattle against Yakuza, when Yuki, Kyon and Tsuruya are outnumbered 3 to 1. Kyon learns from this, and invokes this trope when he engages in his CurbStompBattle, while outnumbered 12:1. In both cases, they kick/fling/punch their opponents hard enough that they collide with someone else.
* In ''[[PokeWars Poké Wars: The Exigence]]'', Mewtwo rips off Registeel's arms and proceeds to beat the crap out of him with said torn off arms.
* In ''Fanfic/TheLastSpartan'', The Master Chief uses a dead Geth Juggernaut's body to plow through other geth attacking him.
* ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}'': Gamzee is [[BerserkerRage displeased]] when Vriska tells him to cheer up because the horrible mutilations he suffered at the hands of [[AbusiveParents his own bloodlink]] are "[[ComplimentBackfire fucking hardcore]]", and beats her up with her own torn-off mechanical arm.
* In ''FanFic/ZeroVsKira'' when two Brittanian thugs attack Suzaku at once, he smashes them into each other.
* Jun Shigeno in the ''FanFic/{{Horseshoes and Hand Grenades}}'' story, ''Month of Sundays'' uses [[spoiler: Shotaro's mannequin arm, long story]] to fight off Damballa, even slapping him across the face with it!
* In the RanmaOneHalf fic, [[http://www.iamnota.net/ff:comes%20the%20cold%20dragon Comes the Cold Dragon]], a drunken Soun ends up using a waitress's exboyfriend as a makeshift [[BladeOnAStick naginata]], in the middle of a bar fight instigated by Happosai.
* In ''Fanfic/TheSwarmOfWar'', the Host’s attack against Bugklaw’s forces starts with him summoning a small army of Zerg and ''flinging'' them at the Ork tanks and Stompa.
* In ''FanFic/DiariesOfAMadman'', Trixie tries to hurl Twilight at Navarone but misses. Later Nav manages to injure himself through this, after killing a timberwolf but being knocked into a wall by the body.
* ''Fanfic/TheDarkLordsOfNerima'': During a sparring match between Ranma, Mousse, and Ryouga, which is crashed by the rest of the NWC, Kuno gets knocked out and is briefly used as a projectile between Ranma and Ryouga.
* ''FanFic/TheIronyOfApplejack'': Pinkie reenacts the scene from [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 Season 2's finale]] where she grabs Twilight and uses her as a [[GatlingGood gatling gun]]. [[ShoutOut And paraphrases]] ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'' when she does it.
-->"Say hello to my purple friend!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' features a scene where a LaughingMad Buzz is briefly [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan brought back to his senses]] by a hard slap in the face from Woody. It's this trope because Woody does this using Buzz's own severed arm, lost in an earlier accident. As he is a plastic toy, this is hilarious rather than gruesome.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', this happens during the family's first fight as a team.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', Slim the walking stick bug is the sword in the circus bugs' Robin Hood routine (much to his displeasure).
-->'''Slim ''[flatly]'':''' [[DeadpanSnarker Swish swish. Twang twang.]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The [[NonSerialMovie movie]] adaptation of ''CityHunter'' has Ryo (Creator/JackieChan) pick up ''his partner'' (Chingmy Yau) and use her as a weapon. The gun in her leg holster does most of the work, though.
* Creator/JetLi picks {{Music/Aaliyah}} up and uses her to fight off a female assailant in ''Film/RomeoMustDie''. You see, he WouldntHitAGirl, so he manipulates ''her'' arms and legs to attack the bad girl.
* In ''Film/TheBirthOfANation'' one of the ''"heroic"''(!) Ku-Kluxers clobbers several black guys with one of their friends.
* Another comedic example comes from ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'', in which during the climax David [[spoiler: is pulled apart by invading zombies]]. His girlfriend, instead of lying back and crying, gets mad and [[spoiler: uses his separated leg to fight her way through the zombie horde]]. Strangely enough, according to the DVD extras [[spoiler: she survives! And eats the leg a bit.]]
* In Creator/JetLi's ''My Father Is A Hero'' (also known as ''Letter To Daddy''), there's a scene where his character and his character's young son are surrounded on all sides by enemies. The young son is a martial arts champion in his own right and there's rope on hand, so Jet ties the rope around the kid's waist and proceeds to ''throw'' the kid at his enemies, whereupon the boy kicks at least half of them in the face running horizontally around their massed ranks.
* Threatened in ''Film/SurfNinjas'' when one character utters the line "Don' make me beat you with the leg of mine that no longer works 'cause ''I'll do it''!"
* In ''Film/SpaceJam'', one of the Monstars uses Tweety like a golf ball and uses Foghorn Leghorn as a club.

* The fight in ''Film/ShakespeareInLove'' between Creator/WilliamShakespeare's cast and Burbage's men in the Rose ends when Hugh Fennyman KO's Burbage with a human skull prop.
* Played for laughs in ''Film/JasonX'' when Jason is lured into a holographic simulation designed to provoke him. By the time we cut back to Jason and a pair of (virtual) bubble-headed sexually promiscuous drug-and-alcohol-abusing female campers, Jason has somehow forced them back into their sleeping bags and is furiously using one to bludgeon the other.
** ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' also had Jason impaling Freddy with his own severed arm.
* In ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'', when Optimus Prime is triple-teamed by Megatron, Starscream, and Grindor, he is seen at one point beating Starscream with his own severed arm before [[spoiler:being killed by Megatron]]. Of course, being a robot, Starscream is able to retrieve his arm and reattach it afterward. After Megatron hit him with it a couple times too.
** In the last battle, Optimus Prime (now combined with Jetfire) manages to make Megatron shoot himself in the face.
** After [[KidAppealCharacter Bumblebee]] [[spoiler:kills Ravage... [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath by peeling him]]... he uses what's left to smack Rampage in the face.]]

* In ''Film/{{Ironclad}}'', based on the siege of Rochester Castle in 1214, one of the castle defenders hacks the arm off one of the attacking mooks. Another defender, lacking a weapon, picks up the stump and proceeds to beat another attacker to death with the wet end.
* Similar to the Jet Li example above, in ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', Scott is [[WouldNotHitAGirl unwilling to attack Roxanne]] (one of Ramona's evil ex's). Ramona first fights off Roxanne with a giant hammer, but is told that Scott must be the one to defeat her. So, Ramona jumps behind Scott and starts moving his arms and feet to land punches and kicks on Roxanne.
* ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'' - After Neo breaks free from the [[SendInTheClones Smiths]]' DogPileOfDoom, he grabs one of them, swings him around and throws him at a bunch of other Smiths, scattering them like bowling pins.
* Film/TheToxicAvenger is prone to doing this, most notably in the first movie where he rips a thug's arm off (so effortlessly, in fact, that said thug requires several seconds of visual confirmation before noticing) and casually knocks him out of the fight with it.
* In ''Film/NightOfTheDemon'', a man is whipped to death with his own entrails. By Bigfoot.
* A strip bar bouncer is clobbered with his own ripped off arm in ''Jolly Roger: Massacre at Cutter's Cove''.
* A woman is beaten with her friend's severed head in ''Blood Cult''.
* ''Film/DemolitionMan'': In one scene, Simon uses an innocent bystander not actually as a weapon, but as a smashing tool to break a museum glass box.
--> '''Bystander''': What seems to be your boggle?
--> '''Phoenix''': My boggle? Oh, brother. [beat] Hold on... how much do you weigh?

* In the 2007 version of ''Film/{{Hairspray}}'' , in an attempt to keep Tracy to appear on the Corny Collins show, the guards unknowingly use a giant bottle of hairspray (with Tracy inside) to bang open the door to the studio where the Corny Collins show was being filmed at.
* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'', an Ent can be seen using an orc to bludgeon other orcs.
* In Film/TheAvengers: The Hulk causes grievous harm to the floor of Stark's penthouse using Loki.
* In ''Film/IronMan2'' Tony does this with some Hammer Drones using parts from other Hammer Drones.
* Downplayed in ''Film/JackReacher''; in the bathroom fight scene, Reacher knocks down one guy onto another and smashes the top guy's head into the bottom guy's until both are out.
* ''Film/TheTransporter''. The protagonist recaptures the 'package' (a BoundAndGagged young woman) and carries her back to his car [[OhCrap only to find two motorcycle cops have stopped to investigate]]. As a NotWhatItLooksLike ploy clearly isn't going to work, he throws the woman at the cops when they go for their guns, then follows it up with some martial arts.
* Variant in the 2009 film of ''Film/SherlockHolmes'': Holmes, after swiftly calculating a couple of angles, touches an electrified fork to a metal pipe in the wall that a mook he has been engaged in fisticuffs with is hanging onto. The resulting shock not only sends said mook flying across the room, it causes him to slam straight into ''another'' mook several feet away who is holding a knife to Watson's throat, sending ''him'' flying across the room as well (and as seen later, accidentally killing him).
* ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman''. PlayedForLaughs with the introduction of Eric the Huntsman, who's in a BarBrawl with a GiantMook. At one point the mook punches an onlooker who gets in his way. Seeing this, Eric grabs another onlooker and throws him in the mook's path. It doesn't slow him.

* OlderThanFeudalism: In ''Literature/TheBible'' (Book Judges), the captured Samson breaks his bonds and kills a thousand Phillistines using the first thing within reach: the jawbone of a donkey skeleton.
* In ''Literature/{{Beowulf}}''... well, let's just let [[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} Miss Grotke]] explain:
--> ''"And then our hero, Beowulf, rips Grendel's arm off and beats him with it."''
* In ''Literature/{{Gone}}'', Caine throws Duck at the Darkness. It doesn't seem like much, but Duck has altered his mass to that of a ''mountain''.
* In ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'', Cao Cao's entourage was ambushed by their treacherous host. Trapped without his armour or weapons, Cao Cao's bodyguard, Dian Wei, grabbed a loose sword and slew the enemies until it broke... whereupon he picked up a couple of soldiers and used them as bludgeons.
* ''{{Literature/Discworld}}'' example, ''Discworld/LordsAndLadies'':
-->"I saw Jason Ogg hit three elves with the first thing he could lay hands on."
-->"Another elf?"
-->"Right."
** In ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'', Reg Shoe gets his arm cut off while fighting Klatchians. Being a zombie, he's not much bothered by this and uses his severed arm as a club. And then he's puzzled when the enemy runs away screaming. Vimes muses they're not used to his form of [[IncrediblyLamePun unarmed combat]].
*** Earlier in the same book, the [[AllTrollsAreDifferent troll Watch officer Sergeant Detritus]] casually hits a bunch of men with another man. After climbing on top of the pile he tells the rest of the crowd they must disperse or he is prepared to use force. The man who served as Detritus' weapon asks what he just used, and is told that that was just 'you helping the Watch'.
** Used vicariously by Corporal Carrot in ''Discworld/MenAtArms'' to avert a potential riot between a parade of trolls (marching in one direction) and a parade of dwarves (marching in the other direction). When Carrot perceives that the bickering of Lance-Constable Cuddy (a dwarf) and Lance-Constable Detritus (a troll) is doing nothing to ease tensions between the two groups of marchers, he orders, "Lance-Constable Detritus, salute!" Detritus salutes. His hand is full of Cuddy. They're both wearing helmets. Mutual unconsciousness ensues. With their incitement thus removed, Carrot (using his "krisma") berates the other trolls and dwarves for being silly chaps who ought to be ashamed of themselves for wanting to riot and cause mass bloodshed and destruction.
** Lampshaded in ''Discworld/GoingPostal'' when Moist overhears a group of would-be bar brawlers carefully choreographing their upcoming melee.
-->"We have an Igor standing by, so if your arm gets taken off do pick it up and hit the other bugger with it, it gets a laugh and twenty points."
** The clown martial art of "''sloshi''", [[AllThereInTheManual as discussed in supplemental material]] like the ''Discworld Companion'', provides training as an ImprobableWeaponUser for all kinds of unlikely armaments -- buckets, ladders, balloons, pies -- including (cooperative) fellow clowns.
** The Nac Mac Feegle take their babies into battle for use if a weapon if need be.
** Various members of the Silver Horde have resorted to this. One of them is well known for fighting 100 men, killing 99 of them with his bare hands, and the remaining 1 with his (that is to say, the remaining man) with his own hands.
* In ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'', Percy defeats Polybotes by smashing his face in with Terminus' head.
* In ''Literature/WorldWarZ'', one of the last interviewees mentions having a [[ProfessionalWrestling former pro wrestler]] in his squad whom he describes as a "Roidasaurus" who at least once picked up a zombie and used it as a club against other zombies.
* ''[[Franchise/FridayThe13th Friday the 13th: Hate-Kill-Repeat]]'' has a part where Jason beats a girl to death with her boyfriend's severed head, while she's wrapped up in a tent. Later, another character is garroted with his own guts, though Jason apparently decides that this isn't killing the guy fast enough, so he proceeds to just rip his head off.
* In one ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' book, Rachel (in bear morph) beats a Hork-Bajir with her own severed arm.
** You forgot the part where she's pretty much having [[LaughingMad hysterical fit of]] ''[[LaughingMad joy]]'' over it, too, and [[BloodKnight thinking about how glorious it is]]. She ''was'' suffering a case of LiteralSplitPersonality at the time, and this was the "mean" one, but that's still part of the "complete" Rachel.
* There was a Creator/ShelSilverstein poem, in which a bunch of pen-drawn people were being chosen for football positions. Each was drawn burly and compact, with the exception of one tiny little player, who became the designated "ball".
* In the ''Film/IronMan2'' novelisation, Tony beats on some Hammeroids with parts from other Hammeroids, noting that [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman he wouldn't be able to do this with humans.]]
* In Creator/IsaacAsimov's novel ''Literature/TheNakedSun'', a robot's detachable arm is used as a murder weapon. The [[ThreeLawsOfRobotics First Law]] did not kick in, because the robot did not know until too late what would happen as a result of carrying out its instructions (which were to await the next furious argument between the murder target and his wife, then detach its arm and hand it to her).
* In ''[[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Return of the King]]'', the armies of Mordor use psychological warfare at the siege of Minas Tirith: they catapult the severed heads of their enemies, branded with Sauron's eye symbol, over the walls of the city.
* A bizarre short story titled "Sen Yen Babbo and the Heavenly Host" involved a professional wrestler with a natural-looking cyborg arm. Part of his gimmick was that at a key point in a match, the adversary would rip the limb loose, with lots of simulated gore, and this guy would then come back from the "shock," seize his arm back with his other hand, and bludgeon his foe into defeat with the cyborg arm. Unfortunately, despite being promoted as a "Face," he was an AxCrazy who beat a few of his opponents ''to death''. And then Divine Justice came along, in the form of a [[spoiler:not-especially-bright adversary who got mixed up and tore off the ''wrong'' arm, causing the psycho "Face" to collapse in shock]].
* [[TheBerserker Fyodor]] in ''Daughter Of The Drow'' caught one deepbat by the tail to clobber others from its pack with it.
* In the novel ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic: Fatal Alliance'', at one point, Satele Shan is caught in space without a suit, so she curls into a ball and uses TheForce to protect herself while Shigar Konshi (who has a suit) pulls her into his ship. When he realizes that she's practically invulnerable in this state, he uses her as a battering ram against enemy droids.
* In ''[[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Changes]]'', while tag-team dueling a pair of monsters, Harry uses wind magic to pick up a Red Court vampire and slam it forcibly into the shins of its co-duelist. As its battle partner is several yards tall, the unlucky vampire gets stomped into paste, and the giant creature slips in the resulting LudicrousGibs.
* In one of Creator/SimonRGreen's ''Hawk and Fisher'' novels, a psychotic magical construct calling itself the Dark Man goes on a rampage, part of which involves it smacking Watch officers around with the human head it's carrying.
** Also a common battle-tactic of Droods in Green's ''SecretHistories'' series. At one point, Eddie takes down a helicopter by picking up one of the Mooks who've been machine-gunning him and [[HelicopterBlender tossing the man into the rotors]].
* In ''Literature/TheVampireEarth'', Ahn-Kha (giant ape-like grog) beats a Twisted Cross minion to death with the head of the Twisted Cross, the General. Unfortunately, immortality hasn't been good to the General and he starts falling apart after the second blow.
* In ''TheOregonFiles'' book Corsair, the protagonist finds himself facing a bad guy on top of a speeding boxcar. His solution? Tear off his own [[ArtificialLimbs prosthetic leg,]] use it like a war mace to beat the man within an inch of his life, then finish him off with the leg's [[ArmCannon built in high-caliber pistol,]] sending the man sailing over the side and into a ravine.
* The ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' tale ''Eulalia!'' includes a scene of Mad Maudie beating up enemies with a live snake.
* In ''[[Literature/MonsterHunterInternational Monster Hunter Nemesis]]'', when veteran MCB agents are informing a newbie agent about Special Agent Franks, one of the stories they relate about Franks is that he once ripped the arm off a werewolf, and beat the were to death with his own limb.

[[folder:LiveActionTV]]
* Hercules is fond of this in ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys''. Most often he grabs a bad guy (or even a damsel in distress occasionally), turns him/her sideways and holds him/her behind his back. Hercules then proceeds to use the person's feet and legs to kick/bludgeon bad guys repeatedly while said person is held helplessly behind him and unable to attack him. In the episode of Xena's first appearance, after he's done using the bad guy he sets him upright and punches him in the face as the bad guy was still wanting to hit Hercules after all that.
* A fantasy sequence in ''{{Series/Scrubs}}'' has Dr. Cox and Dr. Kelso pulling on Dr. Miller's arms, eventually ripping them off, and using them to beat each other.
* When Series/{{Chuck}} and Casey were tied back-to-back in two chairs, Casey just lifted Chuck up and swung him around to kick baddies in the face.
* In ''Series/{{Angel}}'' a flashback has Spike complimenting Angelus on beating the groom at a wedding they crashed to death with his own arm. A less direct example also had Angelus killing The Beast with a dagger made from its own bones, although he didn't have anything to do with creating it.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' often has this to justify a VillainExitStageLeft -- in short, to explain why Buffy doesn't pursue a vampire, it's because he threw the victim he was about to feed on into Buffy, knocking her down.
** In "Never Leave Me", Buffy briefly uses a tied-up Andrew to hit a pair of Bringers.
* In ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'''s [[Series/KamenRiderDenO World of Den-O]] arc, Den-O[=/=]Momotaros' [[FinishingMove Final Attack Ride]] is Den-O's regular finisher, in which its sword blade detaches on an energy "chain" and is then swung around...except that the blade jabs into Yuusuke[=/=][[Series/KamenRiderKuuga Kuuga]], who is at the moment in his Final Form Ride form (an insect-like machine). What results is EpicFlail with a living flail, and the zenith of Yuusuke's ButtMonkey treatment (literally) in the Den-O arc.
* ''Series/TrueBlood'': When a JerkAss tries to [[spoiler:put silver in his face, [[EnsembleDarkhorse Eric Northman]] flips shit, rips off the guy's arm, and beats him with it. There is no GoryDiscretionShot.]]
* One of the many commercial parodies on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' includes "Bug Off", which instead of actually ''killing'' cockroaches submits them to ridiculous torture including tweezers ripping their limbs off and beating them senseless.
** Another sketch has a bunch of ninjas discussing the ass-kicking they just received from some hero, and one of them tells another that when he was unconscious, the hero used him like a bludgeon against the rest of them.
* ''Series/ICarly'': In "iHalloween", while the gang were broadcasting their web show in a supposed haunted house, things began to get freaky and they start to leave. Unfortunately, the door got locked. While trying to figure out a way to open the door, Carly suggests hitting it with something. Sam [[KickTheDog promptly proceeds to use Freddie.]]

* A common theme in men's adventure pulp magazines from the 1950s feature cover stories of attacks by vicious animals - one titled "Weasels Ripped My Flesh" showed a guy brandishing a weasel to club away at a swarm of weasels. This was also used for a swarm of monkeys, flying squirrels(!), etc.

[[folder:ProfessionalWrestling]]
* Something of a staple. This comes in a few forms:
** The ubiquitous splash, using yourself as a weapon by jumping off something high and landing on an opponent. Usually not done boot first, so avoids GoombaStomp.
*** Usually.
** Helping an ally splash, by providing a portable ringpost for them to climb. Often done when one member of a tag team is over the 2m height mark.
** Whipping a partner to splash into a victim, often lying in a corner and waiting for impending doom. A real life variant of a FastballSpecial.
** The 'meeting of the minds', as it were: grab a head of each enemy, smash together.
** And into the MightyGlacier realm ... making an opponent smash down into a victim. Whether done by whipping one enemy into a corner and following with another, or by throwing or slamming one down on a prone victim.
* In the build to WrestleMania 23, the mind games between {{Wrestling/Batista}} and Wrestling/TheUndertaker consisted mainly of them tossing opponents at each other.
* In battle royals and the RoyalRumble, one way to eliminate two opponents at the same time is by throwing one into the other near the ropes so the momentum takes them both over the top.

[[folder:TabletopGames]]
* The third edition of ''{{TabletopGame/Runequest}}'' actually has rules for damage to a large creature used as a club by a larger creature, "Such as when a giant picks up an elephant and uses it to swat pesky adventurers."
* Knowing fully well what their players are likely to try to do, several TabletopGames include rules for using another person as an improvised weapon. ''{{TabletopGame/Shadowrun}}'' is one of these.
** One of the peculiarities of the HERO system is that bodies make decent projectiles: the penalties for unbalanced, unaerodynamic missiles are not so extreme to balance out the fact that a KO'd thrown by a high-strength character is actually capable of dealing more damage than, say, a thrown telephone pole.
** ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds'' follows suit. People don't make especially good projectiles or melee weapons, but it does do damage to both parties and, since the rules for improvised weapons only allow increased damage from improvised weapons if their toughness is greater than your strength, using a super-tough opponent as a club is one of the few ways to break caps.
* [[http://theglen.livejournal.com/16735.html The 1250]] ''Blog/ThingsMrWelchIsNoLongerAllowedToDoInAnRPG'' has a RunningGag where he's forbidden from having weapon proficiency in using various races as clubs, battering rams, catapult ammunition, anvils...
* In [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons D&D 4th Edition]], there is a magic item called Giant's Gloves. These improve your character's ability to grab an enemy, normally not very useful, but the Gloves add an extra bit of bite to this action - You can throw your grappled target at another enemy within a certain number of spaces, dealing a fair amount of damage to both of them and knocking at least one of them down.
** More than a few 3e DMs house-ruled appropriate Weapon Proficiency skills for their creative players; "Weapon Proficiency: Thrown Dwarf", anyone? Bonus when your players then go out of their way to do more of it just to exercise their skill. Cue players grinning madly at the DM when a description of a room full of monsters happens to include a few of the appropriate living ammunition.
** 3.5 had some feats for large characters: Creature Club, to pick up little guys and hit other little guys with them, and Fling Enemy, to use your opponents as thrown weapons.
*** There's also Fling Ally, but that's typically used to get your allies somewhere safe or more useful rather than actually using them as weapons.
** 4e monks have no less than 3 ability choices that can do this to your enemy, usually in the old "human bowling ball" form to knock down if not damage a group. Also, Warlords now have the ability to fling their ''allies'' around; combing this with a feat that allows you to make a basic attack after forced movement and the Warlord's normal array of forced-movement and "make someone else attack" abilities, [[GameBreaker lets one character instigate something in the range of a dozen attacks during a single turn.]]
** In addition the way logic and physics apply in DandD makes it entirely possible for an unusually strong character to use essentially any living thing he is capable of lifting as a weapon ranging from dwarves to dragons. One memorable case of exactly such an event involved a somewhat drunk human in an arena fight to the death using one giant lightning scorpion to smash another into a pile of gore. Make no mistake he still died, but he died like a man using giant scorpions to kill other bigger giant scorpions.
* Some of the Power Attacks in the {{Kaiju}}-themed miniatures game ''{{TabletopGame/Monsterpocalypse}}'' involve knocking your opponent's monster and/or units around to do serious property damage, including Body Slam (which allows you to move an enemy monster into another space, including one occupied by one or more units or buildings) and Swat (which lets you knock an enemy unit into a building or monster).
* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'', naturally (?) enough, comes with melee combat rules that among other things allow [=BattleMechs=] to potentially use each other's detached limbs as improvised clubs. Assault 'Mechs can even [[ImprovisedWeapon pick up and swing light 'Mechs around as giant melee weapons]].
** In the RPG, there's a picture of an angry-looking man missing an arm, wielding a severed arm that looks like it just might have been his. And he's apparently attacking someone...
** Even better, the recent advanced rulebook, Strategic Ops now even has options for Battlemechs picking up smaller units like tanks and protoMechs and throwing them at opponents.
* The Infernal ''{{TabletopGame/Exalted}}'' have a Charm called "World-Breaker Grip". Being used as a blunt instrument is just about the ''nicest'' possible fate for the victim.
** Frankly, the whole of Infernal Monster Style is designed for pure body horror but the worst has to be the charm that allows you to rip bits off someone and use them as improvised weapons. Arms and legs are normal and expected but the charm also functions for internal organs too. The levels of {{Squick}} involved reach a peak when you realise that you can now beat a person to death with a foetus. Bonus points if it was in their uterus until about three ticks ago...
** And if you know Splintered Gale Shintai, you can ''[[DualWielding dual-wield yourself]]''.
** The Abyssal's DarkMessiah Style can be used in conjunction with any improvised weapon. A corpse is explicitly mentioned as an improvised weapon for this purpose. There's no size limit for the corpse in either direction of age...
** Solar Hero has a number of moves that permit you to bowl an opponent into a group of other opponents.
* Quite a few Giant cards in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', such as [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=140217 Brion Stoutarm]] and [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=45387 Bloodshot Cyclops]], have the ability "Sacrifice a creature: [This Card] deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature or player". The Card Art and Flavor Text makes it obvious how they do this (i.e., by chucking the sacrificed creature).
** The ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' card game has some, too, most prominently the Catapult Turtle, which was taken to [[ScrewTheRulesIHavePlot hilarious extremes]] in [[Anime/YuGiOh the anime.]] The Amazon Archer works like that too, which would make it throwing allies at the enemy ''as if they were arrows''. The Cannon Soldier seems to use them [[PoweredByAForsakenChild as fuel for the cannon]], though.
** Said giants are basically creaturized versions of [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=5151 Fling]], the earliest example of this in the game.
* The Dwarf Tossing card in ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'', in which a hapless party member who has been staying out of a combat is grabbed by the scruff of his neck and hurled at either a monster or another party member. The ''dwarf'' takes no penalties for this. Unlike whoever gets hit.
** In the set ''Munchkin Bites!'', a non-item bonus "Dead Friend" can be played for +2. If in that game someone has already died, it can also be used as a ''weapon'', is now a big item and takes two hands to use, and gives a +4 bonus.
* WarhammerFantasy has the famous Giants, who, as part of their randomized moveset, can grab an opposing creature and either fling it into it's own unit or into a nearby unit. Needless to say the creature, and some of his comrades, do not survive this.
** Orcs and Goblins, the most famous users of Giants, can also field the Goblin Doom Diver catapult, which uses Goblins fitted with wings as its AbnormalAmmo. It was originally conceived as a reconnaissance technique, but since very few divers survived, and typically the slates they were sent up with would be found with a message along the lines of "wheeeee", they decided to make the best of it and just shoot the goblins at enemy units.
** There's an imageboard post out there with a player looking at the points cost of an [[Warhammer40K ork warboss']] weapon, finding it costs the same as three [[{{Mooks}} boyz]], and pondering the consequences.
** Not that [=WH40K=] orks don't already do this. The Shokk Attack gun usually fires a gretchin (read:space goblin) through the Warp to try and TeleFrag the targets, which already does count. But among its many misfires, it can also end up flinging its wielder, who being a freaking ''[[OurOrcsAreDifferent Ork]]'' hurts even more, at the unfortunate target.
* In TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}, the spell "Enemy Hammer" allows you to beat one enemy with another using telekinetic power.
** Barbarians can get the rage power "Body Bludgeon". Basically the same thing, only while grappling.
** And let's not forget "Throw Anything". When they say anything, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin they mean ANYTHING.]]
* ''Fantasy Craft'' has the grapple move "Screaming Club". After you successfully pin a smaller enemy with a grapple check you can use them as a club, both of the enemies (Club and target) take equal damage.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:VideoGames]]
* The protagonists of ''Videogame/RiverCityRansom'' can pick up and throw prone enemies, and, yes, even batter people with them.
** You can also use ''your partner''.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' allows its protagonists to pick up enemies and throw them at others.
** Mario could also do this with certain enemies in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' for the GameBoy (and ''VideoGame/MarioVsDonkeyKong'').
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' allows the use of body parts (your own or otherwise) as weapons.
* In ''VideoGame/{{MediEvil}}'', it is possible for our [[DemBones skeletal]] hero, Sir Daniel, to use his arm as a weapon.
* Any body slam in a beat-'em-up usually involves picking up an enemy, swinging him around several times (damaging surrounding enemies in the process), and then throwing him into another pack of foes, segueing into the FastballSpecial.
** Annoying in the X-Men beat-'em-up since this would also harm other players.
** Not to mention Colossus and other [[TheBigGuy Big Guys']] abilities to pick up unfortunate {{mooks}} and use them as makeshift clubs in ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance''.
*** Likewise, this is by far the most fun way to use Jean Grey's telekinesis in the ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'' series.
** ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage'': [[SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound GRRRRR! GYAAAAH! GYAAAAH!]]
* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', When a [[DemBones Stalfos]] loses its club, it will literally rip off one of its arms and try to batter Link with it.
* In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', The Scout got the spy's disembodied arm as a [[http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Unarmed_Combat weapon.]] [[HilariousInHindsight Funnily enough]], this was a while after a cut line from "Meet the Sandvich" where the Scout is hit with his own legbone by the Heavy.
** Introduced during the 2012 Halloween patch, the [[http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Bat_Outta_Hell Bat Outta Hell]] is a skull and spinal cord that players can use to bludgeon each other to death. Players may also customize it to appear as a generic skull or that of a Demoman, Soldier, or Scout.
** While it is an unofficial mod to the game, [[http://www.gamebanana.com/skins/110629 this modification]] is notable as it takes a weapon for the Medic known as the Solemn Vow, [[HypocriticalHumor a bust of Hippocrates]], and changes its view model into that of the still-living severed head of the BLU spy from Meet the Medic. Medics may then proceed to beat someone over the head with ''another'' head.
* In ''[[VideoGame/DragonQuestHeroesRocketSlime Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime]]'', the player can use their Elasto Blast ability to pick up items or enemies. They can then either throw them at other enemies, or throw them onto a mine cart that takes them back to the hub.
* In ''VideoGame/ZoneOfTheEnders'', you can grab various objects and use them as a bludgeoning device, including your enemies.
** Hell, even your ''allies''. Gets especially hilarious in TheWarSequence, since you can grab the Vic Viper and whack enemies with it. Thing is, the Vic doesn't get hurt by this, so you could go the entire battle like this.
* ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave'' allows you to use any unit, active or KO'd, ally or enemy, as a weapon. You can even use whatever attacks they know, so if you pick up a Witch, for example, you can either smack somebody with her or cast her spells. Enemies will stomp you and do damage on their turn if you're holding them, though.
** ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' does let you throw enemies into other enemies, but the result is generally [[FusionDance one higher-level enemy]]. However, you can instantly destroy [[GeoEffects Geo Symbols]] by throwing enemies into them.
*** Not if you have some exploding Prinnies, dood!
*** More traditional examples of the trope would be the Season's Hesitance and Grudge Basher magichange attacks present in ''VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice'' and the remake of ''VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories'', the former having a humanoid character improvise and use their Cockatrice partner as a blunt weapon after it turns out to be a much slower flier then expected, the latter having the humanoid smack their Bone Dragon assistant into the opposition after it helps them.
* In ''VideoGame/MortalKombat4'' and beyond, Quan Chi has a [[FinishingMove Fatality]] in which he rips off an opponent's leg and beats him to death with it. And doesn't stop. Ever. The entire series also has multiple instances of using arms, ribs, and other parts as fatality tools, for example:
** Sheeva, who already [[MultiArmedAndDangerous has four arms]], rips off her opponent's arms and beats them with it. She then poses with her top two arms behind her head, while she claps for herself using her opponent's arms.
** In the [[GaidenGame spinoff game]] ''Shaolin Monks,'' the intro has Sub-Zero doing his classic [[OffWithHisHead head rip fataility]] on one of Shang Tsung's unlucky bodyguards, then using the severed skull and spinal cord to smack Scorpion across the face.
** Kung Lao also has a fatality where he produces a rabbit from his hat... [[BlackComedy and proceeds]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice to beat]] [[RefugeInAudacity his victim]] [[DeathAsComedy to death]] [[Funny/MortalKombatShaolinMonks with it.]]
** If you glitch or hack ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' to fight NPC opponents (mainly the background models in cutscenes and the like), you can do Fatalities on them. The problem is that the game never assigned dismemberment models to these unplayable characters, so a FinishingMove that would, say, [[OffWithHisHead remove the victim's head]] ends up causing the NPC to suddenly split into ''two'' [=NPCs=], with a new NPC object spawned for each body separated part on the field. This leads to [[http://youtu.be/TArGF-PHXLY?t=11m18s the hilarious spectacle]] of the Quan Chi leg-beating fatality above being performed on a monk ''with'' a monk.
* In the Roguelike game ''VideoGame/NetHack'', the cockatrice and chickatrice monsters cause instant petrification on direct contact, whether they are alive or dead, so a common tactic for a character with a pair of gloves is to pick up the corpse of a cockatrice (often referred to as a "rubber chicken") while wearing gloves and use it to bash other monsters, which effectively insta-kills them unless they happen to be immune to petrification.
** Oftentimes players with superstrong characters will skip the cockatrice entirely. It is terribly satisfying to beat six elves to death with the corpse of another elf.
** You can also pick up and wield a cockatrice in ''[[VideoGame/RagnarokRoguelike Ragnarok]]'', providing you're wearing gauntlets or are immune to petrification. You can also pick up any corpse and wield it as a weapon, though it's not particularly effective.
* Several video games with RagdollPhysics will allow the player to use enemy corpses as throwing weapons:
** ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'', when Gordon has the super gravity gun. The normal one doesn't pick up bodies.
*** But if you do a circuitous roundabout of commands (or just a single command, in the episodes) to play with the super gravity gun in the rest of the game... [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential *maniacal laughter* ]]
** ''VideoGame/BioShock1'', with the telekinesis plasmid.
*** Its [[VideoGame/BioShock2 sequel]] lets you [[EleventhHourSuperpower upgrade it to level 3 at the last level]], letting you pick up ''living'' smaller enemies and throw them at each other or at the walls ([[VideoGameCrueltyPotential though it's more practical to kill them before throwing them, since they can't fight back]]).
** ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'', with the kinesis module. Most body parts you can throw won't do much though.
* ''VideoGame/{{Painkiller}}'' has an enemy demon with telekinetic powers that pick up corpses from the ground and hurls them at you.
* ''VideoGame/{{Crysis}}'' lets you pick up ''live'' enemy soldiers and throw them at their comrades. You don't even need to use your nanosuit's strength mode to do this.
* An interesting example from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' Bloodmoon expansion: the Uderfrykte monster wields a severed leg. Once you've killed it, ''you'' can wield the leg, though it's technically just a pretty mediocre club.
* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', you come across a crazy doctor who attacks you with a severed arm. After killing him, you can take the arm for your own weapon.
** In the TabletopRPG it was based on, the Vicissitude discipline allowed you to craft vicious weapons from bones, including your own.
* Several enemies in ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden II'' will pick up the dead bodies of their fellow monsters and chuck them at you. Annoying, and exceedingly painful.
* In the comedic ''{{VideoGame/Doom}}'' [[GameMod mod]] ''[[http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index.php?id=15194 Zharkov Goes to the Store]]'' (requires [[http://zdoom.org ZDoom]],) the alt-fire of your fist causes you to rip off your own arm and throw it at the enemy, upon which it instantly grows back. In fact, if you grab the "demonsphere" weapons powerup, you can throw multiple arms in succession!
* In the ''Franchise/DieHard'' arcade game, it is possible to stun opponents briefly, enabling you to grab them by their legs, drag their unconscious bodies around, and beat the snot out of other opponents with them. Bonus points is that it deals damage to both the whapped ''and'' the one being used to do the whapping.
* One of Umaro's attacks in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has him throwing his allies at the enemy.
* Though it never actually happens, in ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', [=LeChuck=] is said to threaten his crew with beatings... using their own legs. As his crew are almost entirely undead, this is not in fact a death threat.
* In ''VideoGame/LittleRedRidingHoodsZombieBBQ'' for the DS, all the enemies are fairy tale characters turned into various monsters and zombies. This trope shows when Gretel (yes, [[Literature/HanselAndGretel that one]]) uses her brother's leg as a makeshift bat and to bludgeon the player characters.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' games, you can and are in fact encouraged to do this. The first two games have a knockback move that exists specifically to allow you to kick one enemy into another, dealing damage to both (''A New Beginning'' teaches this move in the tutorial, not letting you move on until you get it exactly right), and the third game takes it UpToEleven by allowing you to grab one enemy and either bash it repeatedly into the ground and any other enemies in the way, or swing it around you in a circle, effectively creating a living, screaming, damage-dealing shield around the PlayerCharacter.
* In ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'', it is entirely possible (and very enjoyable) to smash one Stormtrooper to death with the screaming body of another Stormtrooper (and then throw both bodies into space).
* Kratos from ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' can throw enemies at one another rather easily. Additionally, one of his ActionCommands has him rip off the enemy's arm and slam their weapon, still clutched in a death grip, into their face.
* In ''VideoGame/DeadRising'', Frank can pull off multiple variations of this. He can lift an opponent over his head and throw them (knocking any enemy it hits down), irish whip an opponent into a crowd (knocking over any enemy that one runs into), or grab a downed zombie by the legs, and repeatedly spin 360 degrees (knocking down and possibly killing any zombie that comes close and dismantling the one being used as a weapon). He can even used severed human hands to jam into a zombie's mouth, rendering them unable to bite.
* One of Bowser's weapons in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' allows him to pick up Mario and toss him at the enemy.
* In ''VideoGame/WarioWorld'', Wario's "Mad Moves" are all examples of this. In addition to being great for clearing out groups of enemies, sometimes you need the Mega Throw to hit switches or the Pile Driver to smash through trapdoors.
** The ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' series as a whole has this as a major mechanic. Want to beat up mooks in the first four games? Throw them at other mooks! Want to hit a switch? Throw a mook at it! Want to beat up bosses in Shake Dimension? Throw the flunkies at the boss... or in the case of [[EvilChef Large Fry]], feed them to the boss for lunch.
** And then there's a [[SurferDude basketball playing gangsta rabbit]] boss in ''Wario Land 2'' and ''3''. [[BeTheBall There's no ball to use for basketball or soccer, so you end up having to stun the boss and use him as the ball. Or he'll do the same to poor Wario.]]
* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' has an automaton enemy that does this.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', one of King Dedede's special moves involves him chucking various {{Mooks}} at his opponent.
** Many characters are able to damage other enemies while throwing an opponent they've grabbed, whether by hitting them with their throw animation (Mario's spinning throw is actually a decent way to clear off a crowd of enemies) or actually hitting them in the sky with the thrown opponent. The attacks, however, are brief, and not particularly damaging.
** One of the Subspace Emissary enemies, the [[http://super-smash-bros.wikia.com/wiki/Bombed Bombed]], has a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin bomb. For a head.]] Three guesses what he does with it.
* You wouldn't believe the Hidden Skulls in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' to be effective, one-shot-kill melee weapons, but, there you go.
** In the "Oddball" multiplayer gametype (think keepaway, using the skull), players holding the skull can also oneshot people with the skull.
* ''Asterix Mega Madness'' had a level in which you had to clear an encampment of soldiers and bring back their helmets as proof; as melee weapons would break after a while you could knock out enemies and swing them around like any other weapon.
* In ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', Sonic's Werehog form is usually doing this to enemies if he isn't hitting them with his bare claws. The flavor text for the Little and Red Rex enemies even suggests trying this.
** And it's completely, utterly ''hilarious''.
* It only shows up once, and briefly at that, but Kazuya does this against several JACK-4 robots in the opening cinematic to ''[[{{VideoGame/Tekken}} Tekken 5]]''. The robot he uses, he catches out of midair after Heihachi headbutts it into the ground and it bounces. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnLB3BndYfo See for yourself.]]
* Very possible in Adventurer mode in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', due to the way the damage system works. It's probably the only game where you can do grievous harm with a ''bodily fluid'' by chucking puddles of vomit at foes.
** It's possible to chop off a man's arm in front of his wife, take the arm, throw it at him so hard he flies into his wife, sending her careening into their child, who hits a wall and turns into a pile of goo. For some horrors, replace 'arm' with the man's head. Or entrails.
*** Or you can just throw the entire rotting corpse of his child at him and kill him with it. It's entirely possible to kill a town by stockpiling bodies of dead animals and tossing them around at high speeds. If you're dedicated enough to hunt and kill two whales, you can put one in each hand (Don't ask how it works) and ''[[ShamuFu dual wield whales]]''.
** In earlier versions, before the physics system was properly implemented, this was an absurdly effective means of dealing damage, as is evident from the famous tale of the player who ''knocked the head off'' of a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever bronze colossus]] by hurling a ''[[RidiculouslyCuteCritter fluffy wambler]]'' at it.
* This is one means of attack in ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTurtlesInTime''. Of course, these are robots you're attacking... In the SNES version, you use this to attack Shredder in the first fight with him.
* In ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'', [[CuteWitch Yoriko]] does not attack with [[SimpleStaff staff]], her staff attacks with ''her''. As in it twirls around to smack enemies using Yoriko. The problems of having a trapped Demon King as your EmpathicWeapon.
* There's a club in ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II'' that is made from the leg of its creator. Apparently after his family was killed by zombies he cut if off and enchanted it. It deals extra damage to the undead, possibly less to do with the enchantment than because he was just that pissed.
** Zombies sometimes tore off their own arm in an attempt to attack the party.
* ''VideoGame/GunstarHeroes'' features this - not just for the titular Heroes, but all the bad guys, too.
* One of the many ways to kill someone in ''VideoGame/PsiOpsTheMindgateConspiracy''.
* ''{{Franchise/Kirby}}'', anyone? In addition to being able to spit the enemies he inhales at other enemies, the Throw ability that appears in some games allows him to throw enemies with extra force, as well.
** ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'' allows the pink puffball to roll his enemies into balls and toss them at enemies.
* The {{Wrestling/WWE}} ''Day of Reckoning'' ProfessionalWrestling games for the GameCube let you do this as well. Nothing like a Giant Swing to give you a metre or two of clear space all around.
* In ''VideoGame/DecapAttack'', one of Chuck's power-ups is a skull that he can throw at enemies.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Lego|AdaptationGame}} Franchise/StarWars II'' and ''The Complete Saga'', if you enable Extra Toggle, you can be a Lego Skeleton on certain levels. Attacking with him causes him to pull off one of his arms and club an enemy.
* As part of one of the Far Side routes in ''{{VisualNovel/Tsukihime}}'', Satsuki is chasing Shiki and having trouble catching him. So she kills some guy, beheads him and throws his corpse at Shiki. It's meant to be a distraction, but she notes that her aim has improved lately....
* When characters are out of special energy in ''VideoGame/{{Ehrgeiz}}'', their special attacks are instead replaced with a weak attack that somehow relates to the nature of their special attacks. Godhand's variety involves removing his prosthetic hand and bashing the enemy over the head with it.
* ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' has the Hurl Orb, which lets you use the Fastball Special variation using any adjacent enemy. Their version of Strength and Fling also work this way as well.
** Moves that forced switching in the main games like Roar and Whirlwind instead send their victims flying away in a straight line, and they'll take and cause a tiny amount of damage if they collide with another Pokemon.
** Its version of Splash flops the user into a random adjacent square, making this trope with your own body possible when you've got enemies on several sides.
* In ''VideoGame/DawnOfMana'', using the Whip to snag enemies and toss them into other enemies causes both to panic and drop stat-boosting tokens; at level three, you can use the whip to yank enemies about like a yo-yo, but unfortunately you can't lock onto anything while you're doing so.
* ''{{VideoGame/Spelunky}}''. [[DamselInDistress Distressed Damsels]] can take [[MadeOfIron a remarkable beating]], and make surprisingly good throwing weapons.
* Nero's Buster abilities in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4'' often involve picking up an enemy and flinging/slamming it around, damaging other enemies.
* The mutilated body parts that can be found in Super Mutant gore bags can be used as ammo for the Rock-it-Launcher in ''{{VideoGame/Fallout 3}}''.
* ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'''s Charger zombie specializes in this; picking up one player and slamming into the others with him.
** Although he doesn't do it in-game, the Tank does this in the opening movie for the first game where he grabs a zombie out of the horde and throws it at Francis.
* Once Mercer grabs someone in ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'' he can either [[ImAHumanitarian eat them]] or throw them. Taking down a helicopter by throwing screaming civilians at it might not be the most efficient way to take it down, but damn if it isn't fun. Later in the game, he can also acquire moves where he uses whoever he picks up to make an impact crater that can kill or seriously wound surrounding normals (and some damage to more powerful foes and tanks).
* In ''VideoGame/TimeCrisis 4'', the Stage 2 boss, Jack Mathers, throws the players' ally, Captain Rush, at the players twice during the battle with him.
** In ''VideoGame/RazingStorm'', the second [[HumongousMecha Raptor]] you encounter tosses one of your allies at you.
* ''The VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead III'' takes this to terrifying levels: The Fool, the undead sloth boss of the DFI Institute and Genome Ward, periodically shakes the cage he's in, causing ''corpses'' to rain down upon you. You must shoot them away (at least the ones that are clearly headed towards you), as getting hit with a corpse takes off a life.
* ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' uses this with one of the bosses (Lord Crump/Magnus Von Grapple 2.0). The robot uses ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the audience]]'' as machine gun ammunition against Mario.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Lugaru}}'', the player can use opponents (active, knocked out, or corpses) as projectiles against an enemy (as well as kill the enemy if he is only knocked out). Difficult to aim and set up right, but does a lot of damage. Recommended by some players against groups of wolves.
* In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', you can throw Omochao as a projectile against the enemy.
* ''[[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie Banjo-Tooie]]'': Banjo can acquire the optional "Breegull Bash" technique, which allows him to pull Kazooie out of his backpack by her ''neck'' and slam her into the ground, much to her dismay (and to his own enjoyment). Endless fun, and even surprisingly useful in low-intensity combat situations.
** "Surprisingly useful" meaning that it's a one-hit kill on most run-of-the-mill {{Mooks}}. Unfortunately (for the player), it's too slow to use for much more than that.
* ''VideoGame/DynamiteHeaddy'' mixes this with RaymanianLimbs, as Headdy's primary attack is to throw his own head at enemies.
* In ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'', the Gargantuar carries one of three things for a club: a street sign, a telephone pole... or a normal zombie.
** Gigantuar can, among other things, flatten your plants with a nearby zombie and FastballSpecial Imp (the game's resident FragileSpeedster) into your plants.
* ''{{VideoGame/Drakan}}: Order of the Flame'' has Giant Wartoks, which pick up and hurl any large movable object they can find - usually boulders and explosive barrels - at Rynn, but they're so mindless and feral that their projectiles of choice also include normal sized (and living) Wartoks and Orcs (the latter two of course always end up getting killed upon impact; thus these guys actually fear those lumbering giants as if they're their enemies too).
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesCrystalBearers'', throwing items and enemies at other enemies is your main form of attack.
* One of [[CatGirl Taokaka]]'s attacks in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is throwing fish at her enemy. Occasionally she throws a Kaka clan kitten instead.
* In ''[[VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Sam & Max Hit The Road]]'', Sam occasionally uses his three-foot rabbity-thing partner Max as either a tool or a blunt instrument.
* Can be done hilariously via a glitch using Nene in ''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi''. The glitch allows Nene to pick up multiple enemies and when she swings and launches her swords at the men attacking her, the enemies that are stuck to her get launched and swung around as well. Watch the madness [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0k1_r7BpXk here]].
* In ''VideoGame/WarriorsLegendsOfTroy'', [[TheBigGuy Aj]][[BloodKnight ax]]'s very first stun-based FinishingMove involves [[NeckLift picking up an enemy]], ''[[NeckSnap breaking their neck with his bare hand]]'', and then flinging the corpse into their former allies. Needless to say, any {{Mook|s}} who isn't dead after this is [[MookHorrorShow understandably terrified]]... and ripe for [[TheJoysOfTorturingMooks more carnage]].
* The entire game mechanic of ''VideoGame/MischiefMakers'' involves picking up, shaking, and throwing things, especially enemies.
* The [[spoiler:Titan injected Henchmen]] in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' will occasionally pick up defeated enemies and throw them if nothing else is available.
** One can also disorient said enemies, and climb on top of them, basically using them as a bulldozer to demolish lesser mooks.
* ''{{VideoGame/Overlord}}'': Your minions will pick up zombie limbs as weapons.
* In ''VideoGame/NinetyNineNights'', one of Vigk Vagk's moves involves picking up an enemy and wielding him as a flail.
* In ''VideoGame/RiseToHonor'', possibly as an homage to ''Film/RomeoMustDie'', there is a scene where can link up with your girlfriend and use her as a blunt weapon, throwing her into enemies to kick them and such.
* ''VideoGame/BloodRayne 2'' features a series of 'killing puzzles' where you use the bodies of enemies to break things, complete electrical circuits, and open doors. You can also knock enemies into other enemies to disable them.
* ''VideoGame/UndeadKnights'' requires you to do this to proceed. You have the ability to turn any of the enemies swarming you into zombies under your control, and are expected to throw them into booby traps, throw them onto enemies to stun them, smash them into the ground for massive damage, and so on.
* ''VideoGame/BionicCommando'' has this as a special ability for Rad Spencer, at least in the 2009 sequel. Using the [[GrapplingHookPistol grappling claw]] in his [[ArtificialLimbs bionic arm]], Spencer can pull enemies off their feet and sling them at each other, with predictably entertaining results. He can also pick up dead enemies and use them as weapons. This leads to scenarios such as beating a sniper to death with another sniper, picking up an enemy wielding a machine gun and smacking his squadmates around with him, or grappling a disabled [[PoweredArmor Bio-Mech]] and dropping it on a grunt.
* ''VideoGame/ScottPilgrim'' lets you pick up a downed enemy and bash his friends with him, or throw him at them. Interestingly, throwing an enemy, whether he hits another enemy or the ground, hurts him, but using him as a club does not.
* In ''[[VideoGame/GearsOfWar Gears of War 3]]'', Locust players have access to an execution where they rip off a downed enemy's arm and beat them to death with it.
* In ''VideoGame/StubbsTheZombie'', the title character can pull the arms off of his enemies, and wield them. The victim will shortly die of blood loss, or you can beat them to death before they do, then turn the arm on their friends. There's also all the stuff Stubbs can do with his own decaying meat like pull off his own head and bowl it into a group of enemies where it'll explode!
* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', Sora has the Reaction Command "Wild Dance" where he snatches up a Water Form (basically a clone of Demyx made of water), and uses it to pummel the other Water Forms. There are similar reaction commands that are used throughout the game, but they each require a certain type of villain to be used as the "body". A few Limit techniques also qualify.
** Also from II, the Final Mix version has one Reaction Command in the fight with [[spoiler: Larxene, where Sora ''pummels her with her own'' ''[[DopplegangerAttack clone]]'' ''and then merges the two together from the force of the attack''.]]
** The Collision Magnet command introduced in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' has the user trap their current target in a magnetic field, then hurl them into the nearest enemy.
** The Blow-off flowmotion attack in ''VideoGame/{{Kingdom Hearts 3D|DreamDropDistance}}'' allows you to use the size of the larger dream eater varieties to your advantage by throwing them at other enemies.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' and ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', the [[FleshGolem Harvester]] makes full use of this trope. The Harvester in ''The Golems of Amgarrak'' DLC will tear out one of the bodies that makes up its massive bulk and smack the PC with it. In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', the Harvester may tear off its own arm and use it as a club.
* ''VideoGame/{{Whiplash}}'' stars a weasel named Spanx hand-cuffed to a night-invulnerable rabbit named Redmond, with the former using the latter as a blunt instrument (and to solve puzzles) as the pair escapes from an animal testing facility.
* In ''VideoGame/SilentScope 2'', [[ThatOneBoss Cobra]] frequently throws live hostages at you. The only way to avoid damage is to shoot him before he throws the body, which is [[ImprobableAimingSkills easier said than done]].
* ''VideoGame/LetsGoJungle'' has the GiantSpider boss, who slams the floor to create a shockwave that tosses smaller (but still big) spiders at you.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bug}}!'' has the octopus boss, who grabs fish with his tentacles and throws them at you. Bug counters by taking a [[TennisBoss tennis racket and whacking them back]] at the octopus' head!
* ''VideoGame/CyborgJustice'' lets you rip opponent's parts off. [[AppendageAssimilation You can then attach them to your own body]] and proceed to beat the enemy to death with their former components. Very amusing, in addition to being very useful. Mook with a chainsaw arm making your life difficult? Borrow it and use it to rearrange his face as payback!
* In ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', most of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's moves can only be performed while he has an enemy in his grasp, and typically involve slamming them into the ground with enough force to send anyone else in the near vicinity flying; piledrivers, power bombs, and MetronomicManMashing being among them. A special item in the second game even allows him to grab his own troops for this purpose.
** The third installment in the series allows Oichi to do this with her creepy demon hands, picking up enemies and [[MetronomicManMashing smashing them back and forth on the ground and anyone nearby]], brutalizing both the club and the clubbed. Mori Motonari, also from the same game, can summon and bodily fling his own archers at enemies. Not much of a surprise, seeing as how he's an explicit BadBoss who thinks ItsAllAboutMe.
* In the remake of ''VideoGame/{{Splatterhouse}}'' Rick can pick up severed limbs and heads to use as weapons. [[spoiler: In the final chapter part of his SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome involves ripping Dr West's arm and use it to club the MadScientist.]] Also, if an enemy cuts Rick's arm off, it slowly grows back, so he can then pick up his ''own'' severed limb and use it as a weapon - doing so for the first time gets you an achievement.
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft: Cataclysm,'' some ogres in the Deadmines instance use their kobold miners as weapons.
** Since mid-''Wrath of the Lich King'' the death knight's pet ghoul could be empowered into a bigger, more ghouley version. Said version's arm would sometimes fall off and start to crawl away. The ghoul then proceeds to pick up his arm, scratch his back with it and reattaches it. 'Tis amusing to watch.
* Senel from ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' can throw almost any knocked down enemy, and other enemies that happen to be around the point of impact will get damaged, as well.
* In the ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfTheWorld Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology]]'' trilogy, enemies that have been knocked down can be thrown by a Fighter; a "light" enemy will be tossed and smacked a la a volleyball jump serve, a "medium" enemy will be grabbed and the Fighter will spin around a few times before releasing it, and a "heavy" enemy will be lifted and slammed to the ground. Any other enemies nearby CAN be damaged if struck by the hapless victim at any point of the throw.
** Certain enemies such as the Sandworm cause the character to display a different animation than usual when throwing. In the case of the Sandworm (Weight: Heavy), instead of lifting and slamming it as per the typical "heavy" animation, the Fighter [[FlashStep zips in]] and vanishes temporarily as he or she rapidly damages it thrice before zipping back out. Naturally, since it isn't technically being "thrown" per se, it can't be used to damage nearby enemies, thus averting this trope.
* In ''VideoGame/BioForge'' the protagonist finds a severed arm and may use it to beat its violently insane owner to death.
* In ''VideoGame/PsychoWaluigi'' you telekinetically throw around enemies all the time.
* This is the most common method for dealing with groups of multiple enemies in ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}''.
* In the ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' series you can throw enemies into each other. This is a good way of dealing with multiple foes since they don't obey MookChivalry.
* In the SegaGenesis game ''[[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren and Stimpy: Stimpy's Invention]]'', Ren and Stimpy do this ''to each other''!. Ren uses Stimpy as a jet pack, a hairball launcher, and a jackhammer while Stimpy uses Ren as a helicopter, a boomerang, and a shovel!
* In ''VideoGame/{{Toribash}}'', [[OrganAutonomy severed limbs can be controlled by the player]], which opens up several [[BloodyHilarious interesting]] [[CrazyAwesome strategies]]. In fact, ripping off your own limbs is pretty much the only way to have a projectile. You may also rip off an opponent's head and throw it at the rest of their body, earning a mess of LudicrousGibs for your effort.
* KingArthursGold let's you toss enemy (or ally...[[FridgeLogic or your own]]) corpse at other enemies. It also makes good catapult ammo.
* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' there are enemies called [[http://i.imgur.com/9fsYV.jpg Infested Ghouls]], some of which attack you with corpses.
* Hilariously used in Zangief's ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 3'' ending. How does he stop [[spoiler: the BigBad's Psycho Drive (which is also a KillSat]])? [[RefugeInAudacity By piledriving]] [[StoutStrength E. Honda]] [[RefugeInAudacity into it repeatedly.]]
* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' has the Genki [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Manapult]], which sucks up pedestrians and fires them, for a twofer with AbnormalAmmo.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Syndicate}}'' (2012), an infobank entry mentions an Agent throwing a suspect off a tall building. This trope comes in when the entry mentions that the body just missed a secretary and would have hit her had it been thrown a few seconds earlier.
* In ''VideoGame/TransformersFallOfCybertron'', Grimlock's only projectile comes in the form of grabbing enemies and throwing them.
* ''Videogame/EYEDivineCybermancy'' allows players to use dismembered body parts as a sort of weapon. If an enemy is decapitated or dismembered with a sword or [[HandCannon high powered gun]], the player can pick up the gibs and use their psychic powers to hurl it at enemies.
* 1993's ''VideoGame/DieByTheSword'' had you cutting off ankles, legs, arms, etc., off of enemies, who would keep hopping around and fighting. If you sheathed your sword and picked up their limb, you could literally beat them to death with it. Especially useful if the enemy's limb was holding a weapon, as this greatly extended your range. You could also throw the limbs, but it took inhuman levels of timing and accuracy to actually hit someone that way.
* Most melee attacks were DummiedOut of the first ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'', but apparently all items have a melee damage value, which can be re-enabled via a glitch. Bodies do [[PowersOfTwoMinusOne 255]] damage, and are the most damaging weapons in the game by a wide margin, but are extremely heavy as a tradeoff. Still, there is something to be said for beating a Sectoid to death with another Sectoid...
* In ''Blind Justice'' RPG the first weapon you get are rotting severed limbs of a less lucky inmate. Setting the appropriate tone for the rest of the game.
** Ms. Fortune has a self-inflicted variant where she uses her own head and/or tail for various attacks.
* All the "Unite" abilities in ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'' basically involve the eponymous heroes linking together to use their own bodies for powerful attacks. Unite Whip has them link up in a long line and get whipped at enemies, Unite Gun has them link up into a gun and [[AbnormalAmmo fire themselves as bullets]], and so on and so forth.
* In ''ResidentEvil6'', if you stun an enemy and melee them from the front, most characters will do a realistic throw or striking sequence. Chris Redfield, on the other hand, picks the mook up and flings it forward like a living javelin, hurting anything that stands in the victim's path.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'', Ms. Fortune uses her DetachmentCombat like this, and Valentine's jumping hard kick has her use a cadaver to strike the opponent.
** Of the many possible potential DLC characters for their Kickstarter stretch goal, Scynthia's gimmick was to be able to pick up KO'd bodies and use them to bludgeon their opponent with it. She didn't make a cut, but they did program a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yic4-2hfIZI short demo]] of the concept.
* ''VideoGame/TheDarkness II'' allows you to pick up your enemies' bodies (or what remains of them, for that matter) and throw them at others for damage. An optional upgrade allows you to do the same with your Darkling, who can assist you by incapacitating or plain out killing the unfortunate victim.
* In ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors 4'', any body sent flying through the air dealt collision damage to anyone behind it...usually on the order of ''their entire lifebar''. It didn't matter if the party on the receiving end of the impact were {{Mook}}s, random officers, or named generals, everyone died equally to flying corpses. This made officers with attacks that sent people flying highly dangerous to be around--Taishi Ci and Xu Zhu were monsters because they could annihilate players without ever attacking them, and Lu Bu was even ''more'' nightmarish than before.
* Enemies explode into body parts when they are killed in ''VideoGame/TheForest''. It is possible to pick up the severed legs and arms of the cannibals and use them as weapons.
* The Last Giant in ''Videogame/DarkSoulsII'' hates you so much that it will eventually ''tear off its own arm'' and use it as a club.
* In ''VideoGame/TheMatrixPathOfNeo'' Neo can pick up enemies by their feet and swing them into other enemies to knock them over.
* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends:''
** Lee Sin's ultimate kicks an enemy extremely hard, causing them to go flying. Any of Lee Sin's enemies they collide with along the way take the same damage.
** Sion's roar sends out a shockwave that damages and reduces the armor of the first person hit. If that's a minion instead of a champion the minion will be thrown back, dealing bonus damage to anyone it hits.

** Not to mention every time Black Mage gets ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice; the weapon he's impaled on will often still be used with him on it.
* ''{{Webcomic/Girly}}'': Otra uses Winter to [[http://girlyyy.com/go/510 beat off vore fetishists]].
* Gamespy's webcomic ''Webcomic/FlintlockesGuideToAzeroth'' has Bloodrose. [[http://pc.gamespy.com/flintlockes-guide-to-azeroth/episode-16-fast-times-in-arathi-basin/705778p1.html You do not mess with her.]]
* In ''{{Webcomic/Nodwick}}'', Yeagar has to have weapon specialization in Henchman. And since they tend to be shorter, he doesn't even have to disassemble Nodwick before attacking with him.
* ''Webcomic/BratHalla'': Before Thor gets Mjolnir, he tends to break every weapon he uses. At one point, having so disarmed himself, he suddenly realises that his brother Balder is ''invulnerable''... so he uses him as a weapon. Note that Balder can still feel pain...
* In ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' Oasis actually grabs two guys who are [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=010227 handcuffed together]] so she can use one as a human shield and swing the other one around like a club.
* ''Webcomic/DeadWinter'' has Fight using Flight as an improvised ball-and-chain [[http://deadwinter.cc/page/strip/053.jpg here.]]

* Webcomic/AGirlAndHerFed: It's a cybernetic arm. [[http://www.agirlandherfed.com/1.662.html Here.]]
* Referenced in ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''.
-->'''Dan:''' So you see, you can beat an alligator to death with another alligator but it's probably not worth the investment.
* In [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20100224 this]] ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' strip done by [[spoiler:Lucrezia]] on Zeetha with Theo as the bludgeon. Later Vole [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20110729 hit Tarvek with Gil]].
* Done in [[http://www.goblinscomic.com/08092010/ this]] ''{{Webcomic/Goblins}}'' strip as a way for a lizardman to get around his conviction that you don't fight things you can't eat. After all, if it's one of the {{Mecha Mook}}s doing the actual impact, it's really that mook that's fighting his friends instead, right?
* In ''{{Webcomic/Hellbound}}'', at one point Mel throws a guy through another guy's chest.
* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' Tagon [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2004-03-07 swung Breya]] at a goon. With an added kick (literally).
* SuperNaturalMartialArts expert Greg of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' further defies the already strained laws of physics regarding Fire Summons by using the "hair" of one of them to pull this manoeuvre off in [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-04-29 this strip]].
* In ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'', fairly late in the Court of Karnak storyline, maybe November 2010, Karnak provokes Siegfried into striking at him and severing his chains, and then gets the chains wrapped around Siggy and uses him as a flail against the rest of the 'court.'
** Some little while after this, he uses the same chains and the same move to throw exploding Bulgak into the middle of his enemies, so ''they'' can get hit with Redemption Spillover Damage, instead of him. In this case, obviously, it's less about the impact than the delivery-of-a-soul-hitting-nova.
** How To Stop An Exploding Dead Orc.
* Occasionally used in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''. Since Ran can almost instantly respawn after death, leaving behind a corpse, he has been used in everything from explosive {{Fastball Special}}s to beating out fires with his own body. The phrase "Ran-bombs" has been thrown around on multiple occasions.
* ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'' [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/electricwonderland/index.php?issue=6&page=16 once]] had Aerynn use NJ as a bat to keep an angry mob at bay.
* In ''Webcomic/ImpureBlood'', [[http://www.impurebloodwebcomic.com/Pages/Chapter001/ib004.html Roan tears off]] a BladeBelowTheShoulder and uses it on the {{Cyborg}} himself.
* ''{{Webcomic/xkcd}}'' fandom [[http://www.xkcdb.com/?6349 reminds]]: a body with excessive piercings can inflict more damage.

* Occurs in the ''WebAnimation/DickFigures'' episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nc-d-2oPCvU&feature=showob Kung Fu Winners]]. Once where Red tears off a ninja's leg to use in his fight against the rest of the ninja's. And the second time being in Red's fight with the big bad head of the restaurant/dojo where he uses Blue as a human shield against a table flung at him by said big bad before, in turn, flinging him at said big bad. The big bad promptly knocks Blue away leaving Blue the only one injured in that altercation.
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' quickly establishes how [[BadAss terrifying]] [[SamusIsAGirl Tex]] is:
-->'''Church:''' Poor Jimmy was the last one to go. Tex walked up to him, pulled Jimmy's skull right out of his head, and beat him to death with it.\\
'''Tucker:''' Wait a second... how do you beat someone to death with their own skull? That doesn't seem physically possible.\\
'''Church:''' That's ''exactly'' what Jimmy kept screaming!\\
'''Jimmy:''' (''in flashback, being beaten to death with his own skull'') This doesn't seem physically possible!
** And of course, in her now famous [[CurbStompBattle smackdown]] of Sarge, Simmons, Grif, and Tucker (at the same time no less) in Revelations, all four of them are subjected to this trope at least once.
* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse story "Boston Brawl", Phase finds out that she can control [[spoiler:the {{Technobabble}} that makes Matterhorn seem to be a 40-foot giant]]. She then picks him up and beats the tar out of everyone in reach with his body.
* [[Literature/StoneBurners Olivia]] does this to Freedom Fighter with his own arm while under the [[UnstoppableRage effects of his powers.]]
* When the PuppeteerParasite [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-378 SCP-378]] is discovered by Wiki/SCPFoundation medics in an agent, it tears off its host's arm and uses it to beat them to death.
* [[MyWayEntertainment Don't mess with Juggernaut.]] He'll [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSuvOVH0aSQ hit you with your own pimp]].
** "I will beat the shit outta you, Charles. I'll beat the shit outta you ''with'' Charles!"
* In ''Literature/PayMeBug'', [[StarfishAlien Ktk]] can do this with ''[[DualWielding three bodies at the same time]]''.
* Not actually done in ''Roleplay/DarwinsSoldiers'' but Gustave threatened to dismember Roux and beat her to death with her own limbs if she did anything funny.
** Alfred used the same threat on Kain.
* Flippy from ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' has been known to do this, in "This Is Your Knife" he rips out Cuddles' intestines then uses them to strangle Giggles, in "Keepin' It Reel" he kills Flakey and uses her as a club to hit Cuddles, and in "Operation Tiger Bomb" he uses his deceased friend Sneaky's body parts as weapons against the tiger army, his spine and ribcage as a mace, and his stomach organ as a machine gun using the teeth of one of the soldiers as ammo.
* In a variation, [[Website/{{Cracked}} Robert Brockaway]] suggests that when facing off against a wild animal, you [[RunningGag BEAT IT WITH THEIR OWN KIND]].
* In ''Webcomic/NotAVillain'', in the tutorial section of the Game, The Dude bludgeons a fiendi to death... by using the NPC child that he was supposed to be protecting as his weapon.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''
** When a pillow fight between Peter, Joe, Quagmire, and Cleveland degenerated into a fistfight, Peter used Joe as a weapon against Quagmire and Cleveland.
** In a deleted scene of another episode, some school boys use Meg to beat up Chris.
** One of the ways Peter tries to keep Brian away from him in "Brian Swings and Sings" is by throwing Stewie at him.
** In the Peter vs. Giant Chicken fight in "No Chris Left Behind", they kill an alligator while in a sewer then Ernie hits Peter with it.
** In "Meg Stinks!", when Brian gets sprayed by a skunk and grabs Chris's leg while blinded Chris beats him with Stewie to get him to let go.
** In ''It's A Trap!'' (the ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' parody), four female stormtroopers are jumped by Ewoks; each grabs her furry assailant and slams it around until it dies. Then use them against each other in a "pillow" fight.
* A ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' episode had a Franchise/JamesBond spoof where the super-spy Agent Tag was unconscious for the majority of the story, forcing Jackie to drag him around everywhere. One mook tried to intimidate Chan with his nunchuck skills, and Jackie replies by swinging around the dead weight Agent Tag like a nunchuck. [[RuleOfFunny It was quite comical.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Kole is a girl whose ability is to transform into immobile diamond. Her best pal Gnarrk is a thawed-out caveman. When they need to fight, Kole willingly becomes a super-hard club for him to swing.
** Not just a club. She'll shape herself into whatever form best suits the moment, able to de-diamond, move, re-diamond, and be used in an instant, which shows the insanely good coordination between her and her partner, as well as the ability to think fast. It sounds like WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway, [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower but seen in action it's pretty sweet.]]
** She's also able to use her diamond form as a refracting lens for Starfire's starbolts.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', Optimus was able to defeat the body of Sentinel Prime [[GrandTheftMe controlled by a Headmaster unit]] by tearing the arm that held a shield arm off and beating it with it. When the Headmaster unit detached and Masterson tries to get away Optimus gets him by kicking Sentinel's decapitated head at him like a soccer ball. (We don't feel much sympathy for Sentinel, since he's a {{jerk|Ass}}.)
** In "Transwarped" Spittor, well, ''spits'' an Autobot medic at her comrades, after grabbing her with his tongues and coating her in explosive slime.
** In "Human Error, Part 1" a virtual Megatron gets his arm cut off by Prowl and Optimus proceeds to beat him with it. He does it ''again'' in part 2 when he uses his grappling hook to grab Laserbeak, throws him at Soundwave, forcibly transforms it into a guitar, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome then uses it to cut Soundwave]] [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe in half]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', the viewer's first introduction to [[AdaptationalBadass Wheeljack]] has him going head to head with a squad of Vehicons. At one point he proceeds to karate-chop one Vehicon's arm off and beat the living daylights out of another Vehiccon with it.
** Done more brutally in Season 3, with [[spoiler: Predaking using a Vehicon as a club in his fight against Megatron.]]
* In the ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' episode "Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love?", Zoidberg cuts off Fry's arm in a fight to the death. Fry retaliates by beating Zoidberg over the head with it.
* [[MesACrowd Triplicate Girl]] on ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes'' uses this move with her other selves, ''in a chain''. Validus didn't stand a chance.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', when Brock Samson's hands were wrapped in bandages and a pirate was doing an anal cavity search to find his boat key (ItsALongStory), Brock clenched his ass, locking the pirate's arm in place, and swung him like a club to knock out him and his partner.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episodes "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe" and "Cancelled", Kyle knocks down Cartman with his little brother Ike.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' season 3 (Primus), Ben didn't exactly rip Vilgax's arm off and beat him to with it, he just grabbed a hold of his wrist and proceeded to hit him repeatedly with it while saying "Stop hitting yourself" every time he uses Vigax's fist to punch Vilgax in the face.
** Kevin: "Heh-he, classic!"
* In ''WesternAnimation/KorgothOfBarbaria'', Korgoth tears off a mook's arm and beats him to death with it.
* In ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy's Big Picture Show'', Edd attempts to get [[spoiler:Eddy's Brother]] to stop beating Eddy; in response, he hammers him into the ground with Eddy.
** In "Little Ed Blue", Ed is in a very bad mood, so when Kevin and Eddy start pestering him he grabs Eddy, molds him into a baseball bat, and uses him to hit Kevin.
** In "Here's Mud In Your Ed", Eddy tried to use Ed as a battering ram to knock down Rolf's front door, though [[TheDitz Ed]] seemed [[CloudCuckoolander blissfully unaware]] [[MadeOfIron and unhurt.]]
---->'''Ed:''' Who's there? Who's there? Who's there?
** In "O-Ed Eleven", two of the Kanker sisters knock down a door using the third sister.
** In "May I Have This Ed", Lee grabs Ed and molds him into a hammer to whack Marie (who has similarly "borrowed" Eddy to use as a bludgeon against Nazz) with, but she's interrupted by May.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy'' episode "Doom-mates", Dudley uses Kitty as a stick to whack Keswick and the Chief whom he thought were the Chameleon.
* ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'' loves this trope. In fact, the very first fight [[IdiotHero Coop]] fights is won by ripping the arm off a charging [[MechaMooks Mecha-Mook]] and knocking it out with it. Hell, a later episode has Coop '''[[CrazyAwesome tear the scales of a worm alien to use it as a nunchuk.]]'''
* In episode 5 of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', the background video when Batman is explaining the Amazo situation to the team shows the pointy-eared guy grabbing Superman by the cape and bludgeoning the rest of the League's response team with him. This is very cathartic, since Clark had been a big meanie-pants to Superboy again in the previous scene.
* On ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', a [[CatsAreMean Shwartzentiger]] uses Lucius to try and beat [[ItMakesSenseInContext a holographic duck]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', Buford does this during a surf contest.
-->'''Announcer:''' He's got him in a half nelson. Now a full nelson. Oh! And now he's actually beating him with Bobby Nelson!
* Almost happened on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' when Homer was temporarily in charge of a navy fleet and accidentally shot the captain out while he was inspecting the torpedoes. The captain on the other ship tells his crew to respond in kind and when [[ExactWords they then grab him]], he clarifies that he meant with a torpedo.
** In the ''Treehouse of Horror XV" segment "Four Beheadings and a Funeral", as Homer flees the opium den he throws people to slow his pursuers. Moe tells him to obey the sign, "No Tossing Addicts".
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]] uses '''''The Everlovin', Blue-Eyed [[Comicbook/FantasticFour Thing]]''''' as a club to defeat Doombots!

* What happens in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' when you combine and weaponize Pinkie Pie's RuleOfFunny antics with Twilight Sparkle's magic? [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Equippable_Ally_4717.png A frigging Twilight Gatling-Gun, that's what]].
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'': In "The Last Patrol!", the giant Elast-Girl grabs one of the Mutant Master's mutant bodies and uses it to pound another one.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheSecretDoor'', Malucia levitates the trogs with magic and throws them at Alexa.

The bear had been hit by another car and flew through their windshield. The bear died too.
