Added DiffLines:

* Darli Dagger in ''Videogame/SamuraiShodown'' (2019) has a super where she swaps her giant saw for a drill & literally performs a [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Giga Drill Breaker]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheCarRoadToRevenge'': One of Talen's gang has a drill implanted in his hand. He uses it to inflict an EyeScream on Craddock, and later to kill the cop on watch outside Daria's house.

Added DiffLines:

* With a massive amount of RuleOfCool, ''[[Manga/RurouniKenshin Rurouni Kenshin Restoration]] Chapter Zero'' has a Spaniard assassin whose weapon of choice is, essentially, an unholy hybrid of RoyalRapier and screwdriver, which can apparently hit hard enough to demolish a rickshaw.


* One of the Earth Corps scientists from ''WesternAnimation/{{Inhumanoids}}'', Eddie "Auger" Augutter, has an [[CaptainObvious auger]] attached to his exosuit.

Added DiffLines:

*** 8th Edition added the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Tectonic Fragdrill]], a gigantic stationary drilling platform for Genestealer Cults. It can damage anything that comes close and even cause earthquakes by drilling into the planet's crust. Some cultists can also arm themselves with smaller rock drills, which are capable of boring through multiple enemies with a single attack.


* ''VideoGame/DrillDozer'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.

to:

* ''VideoGame/DrillDozer'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.In ''VideoGame/DrillDozer'', almost everything possible is achieved by spinning your drill, including deflecting bullets, navigating screw-patterned air vents, controlling a fountain to defuse EMP bombs, removing screws to defuse more bombs, playing a complex hot-potato game with even ''more'' bombs with a giant mech, launching up the sides of buildings, flying via attaching a propeller to your drillbit, slaughtering the police force, and causing a giant drill-tipped missile to suddenly reverse direction and crash into the enemy gang's HQ building. The only thing you ''don't'' accomplish by this is defeating the main villain, which the character, a pink-haired schoolgirl, accomplishes by simply punching him in the face.


*** ''Series/KishiryuSentaiRyusoulger got Kishiryu Tyramigo/[=KishiRyuOh=]'s twin drills where he uses this to detach joint parts for attacks in combat. [=KishiRyuOh=] Three Knights can swap its weapon parts to equip the Triken Knight Sword and both drills on its legs for a slashing kick or Tyramigo's drills on its knees. [=KishiRyuOh=] Five Knights, [=MilNeedle=]'s tail combines with Tyramigo's drills on each side called Needle Attack

Added DiffLines:

* In the 1940's ''Venus Equilateral'' series by George O. Smith, the eponymous SpaceStation is being threatened by a SpacePirate and various means of defense are considered. The problem is that a spaceship hull is tough enough to resist most of them. A drill-tipped warhead is suggested, but the drill would just shatter on impact. However they realise an electric arc drill is not subject to the same problem.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/{{Subnautica}}'' has a more unusual (in fiction) example in the PRAWN Suit's mining drill arm, which is a grinding wheel drill rather than the usual pointed one. Still, it works wonders to dig through large mineral deposits and, while it won't kill much without a lot of perseverance (mostly because the planet's life seems to be MadeOfIron), it ''will'' get pesky predators to back off for a decent while when applied directly.


* There is one in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' and Cartman will not hesitate to use it against hippies.

* The ''Narada'', the Romulan ship in ''Film/StarTrek'', is a giant 24th-century mining vessel with a drill that can reach a planet's core in a relatively short amount of time. The fact that the drill is made of ''fire'' is just that much more awesome. The original ''Narada'' was a mining ship with no weapons. The MacrossMissileMassacre monstrosity shown in the film was modified using reverse-engineered [[TheVirus Borg]] technology, as shown in the ''Countdown'' comic.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the baddies in the horror-parody ''Pandemonium'' (1982) kills the toothpaste-salesman's daughter with a drill to the mouth. (Due to her extreme over-brushing habits, she spews out ''quarts'' of toothpaste rather than blood.) Exaggerated in that he's said to turn his victims into furniture, with such expertise that the "corpses" are portrayed by actual cabinets, end tables, etc.
