** Alternately, Alice's stick alone allows them to beat hordes of enemies armed with actual weapons.
** She uses something that shouldn't ''be'' a weapon by any train of logic (like [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure soap]] [[Manga/OnePiece bubbles]]).
* '''Downplayed''': Alice uses kitchen knives, when combat knives are available.
* '''Justified''': Her hockey stick accidentally came in contact with GreenRocks and now has magical powers making it more deadly in combat than any actual weapon.
* '''Inverted''': Alice uses a mace to play hockey.
* '''Subverted''': Alternatively: Alice's weapon of choice isn't actually a hockey stick, she just used it as an ImprovisedWeapon due to its similarity to something she ''is'' skilled with.
* '''Double Subverted''': Alternatively: After so long using the hockey stick, she's gotten rusty with her actual weapon, and ends up just sticking with the hockey stick.
* '''Parodied''': Alice's hockey stick is basically an InfinityPlusOneSword with the ability to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu take down Cthulhu]].

* '''Defied''': Alice is given the opportunity to choose her weapon. The hockey stick is available, but she passes it over for a sword.
* '''Discussed''': "Just watch: she's totally gonna kick his ass with that hockey stick."
* '''Conversed''': "How long do you think it takes to master hockey stick-fu?"
* '''Deconstructed''': Alice is being attacked and uses a hockey stick to defend herself. It is ineffective and her attacker overpowers her.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Alice is fighting an enemy who is [[WeaksauceWeakness vulnerable to the type of wood used in hockey sticks.]]
** Alice was using the weapon in a way it was ineffective. With proper knowledge of what kinds of attacks are best applied where, the borderline improvised weapon becomes as lethal as any "normal" weapon.
