** Chainfists are a variant of the PowerFist that combines the energy field of the powered gauntlet with the cutting power a chainsaw blade, allowing the wielder to cut through armoured vehicles and bulkheads as if they were paper.
** Lightning Claws are weapons consisting of a number of a number of blades wreathed in a power field and attached to an armoured gauntlet. How the blades are attached to the gauntlet differ, with some attached to the back of the hand while other patterns attaching the blades to the knuckles or have them replace the gauntletís fingers.



* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', one piece of wargear available to Eldar are Power Blades, described as fitting onto the forearm and allowing the Eldar in question to wield other weapons in addition to the blades.
** Whereas SpaceMarine Terminators (and their [[FaceHeelTurn Chaos Marine]] counterparts) have the chainfist, a PowerFist (a giant mechanical glove that smites most things you can touch with it) with a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw strapped to it]] to make it [[NoKillLikeOverkill extra killy]].
** They also have [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin lightning claws]].
** Members of the Black Dragon SpaceMarine Chapter often have retractable bone blades that grow from their forearms. They sheath them in adamantium to make them extra-effective.
