Ironically, the Bandit is later defeated when he steals a bike and tries to escape. Sonic throws a bike chain into the wheel, jamming it and causing him to crash.

* A chain is one of Shack's weapons of choice in ''[[Film/EmperorOfTheNorth Emperor of the North Pole]]''. He mostly uses it offensively like a flail, but at one point uses it defensively to stop a blow from an ax.

Sometimes the chain is all you need for a weapon, without the weight at the end. It's used much the same way as a {{whip|ItGood}}, and in less realistic works, skilled users can make InstantKnots with it.

A BadassBiker will often do this in a rumble. Also very common in 80s movies with street gangs and among fictional Japanese delinquents. See also EpicFlail, FightingWithChucks, VariableLengthChain, ChainedByFashion and WhipItGood. SubTrope of ImprovisedWeapon.

* 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.
