A mop (such as a floor mop) is a mass or bundle of coarse strings or yarn, etc., or a piece of cloth, sponge, or other absorbent material, attached to a pole or stick. It appears on occasion as an improvised weapon, though mostly for the sake of humor, or in real-world scenarios where nothing better is available. The handle of a mop can serve as a fairly useful clubbing implement once the mop-head is removed.

Not to be confused with the MOP (Massive Ordinance Penetrator).


  • The mop is a weak "joke" weapon for Crono in Chrono Trigger.
  • Another JRPG appearance involves the mop as a weapon for Cid Highwind in Final Fantasy VII.
  • Maple Story features the Maroon Mop as the most powerful weapon in the game. Clearly, someone in South Korea has a very keen sense of humor.
  • A mop is one of the hidden weapons in WWF Smackdown 2.
