* One can make a reasonable assumption that any game where the hero mainly fights [[WhipItGood with a whip]] (such as ''VideoGame/LaMulana'' or any ''VideoGame/Castlevania'' starring a Belmont) will inevitably have an upgraded version of the whip made of chain. And sometimes ''that'' can be upgraded even further into an EpicFlail.

* '''Mech-sized'' "chain whips" exist in ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}''. As dedicated [[HumongousMecha [=BattleMech=]]] melee weapons go, they do relatively little damage, but have the fairly unique ability to momentarily entangle another 'Mech's limbs if they hit them, potentially tripping the target or keeping it from moving away from the attacker for a turn or two. They're acknowledged as AwesomeButImpractical in-universe, since like most melee weapons they were designed for use in gladiator games where wowing the crowd with flashy moves to generate ticket sales is more important than efficiency.
