* The swung-on-a-chain version comes in to play at the end of an ''{{ESWAT}}'' level. You had to guess which height it would be swung at, and for some reason it was swung just right so the enemy could deflect your bullets.

A favored weapon of sailors and pirates, the anchor ranks high on the list of badass [[ImprobableWeaponUser improbable weapons]]. Anchor weapons come in two flavors: either strapped to a chain and swung as an EpicFlail variation on HooksAndCrooks, or as a large heavy melee weapon with a cool shape.

Anchors are supposed to be exceptionally heavy, their intended purpose is to hold down a ship. You'd expect any anchor wielder to be a huge, burly man. This just makes little girls swinging anchors all the more amusing.

* Coon from ''FreeCollarsKingdom'' uses a giant anchor as a weapon. However, since all the characters are the size of cats, it's not so much a giant anchor than just a fancy fish-hook. Still, it's giant to them.
* One of the first scenes of ''{{Zambot3}}'' has Kappei and Shingo fighting each other with anchors meant for row-boats, using them somewhat like flails.
