They've tried [[TooManyBelts belts]], [[{{Zipperiffic}} zippers]], [[PowerCrystal crystals]], [[PowerGivesYouWings wings]], [[SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset bones]], and even their kid sister's [[PowerGlows glowy]] [[PowerFloats floaty]] {{sparkles}}, but none of those made them look {{Badass}} and [[PowerMakeover super powerful]] (more like a cute RummageSaleReject)... so what's a budding {{Mons}}, [[SummonMagic summon monster]], or enslaved freedom fighter to do?

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' The Protagonist's GuardianEntity, Arsène, is surrounded by totally aesthetic, ornate iron chains which the Protagonist grips onto whenever Arsène's summoned. [[spoiler:The Protagonist breaks these chains when Arsène [[EvolutionPowerUp evolves]] into Satanael.]]

* Hinted at in ''SaintSeiya''. [[DudeLooksLikeALady Shun]], [[TechnicalPacifist Bronze]] [[MartyrWithoutACause Saint]] of [[BarrierMaiden Andromeda]], wields the [[EpicFlail Nebula]] [[WhipItGood Chains]] on each arm: the right-arm one, with a pointed end, is meant for offense; the left-arm one, with a circular weight, defends (although it can suffer from TheWorfBarrage from time to time.) While he uses these as his primary tools most of the time, woe to the foe that destroys them or forces him to take them off --at that point, [[BewareTheNiceOnes Shun will shed his inhibitions]], explode his [[BattleAura Cosmo]], and summon the [[GameBreaker unbeatable attack]] ''Nebula Storm''.
* The characters of TsubasaReservoirChronicle wore chains on their goth-y outfits in the Human Chess-obsessed Mafia world they stopped off in after the series took a turn for the confusing. ItMakesSenseInContext, but not much.

* Ikari in ''{{Eyeshield 21}}''. He's not the most powerful character in the series, so much that his teammates have to chain him up, so you'd usually see him restrained until the critical time comes. But he's pretty showy about his BerserkButton.

* Karura, from ''VideoGame/{{Utawarerumono}}'' was introduced as being heavily chained in the deepest hold of a slave ship that was sinking in a storm. When she escapes, she's still wearing the thick, heavy chained collar around her neck. She implies to Eruruu that it's probably impossible to remove, though she refers to it as a "necklace" when chatting with Aruruu, likely to avoid having to explain the horrors of slavery to such a young child.



* [[{{Utawarerumono}} Karura]] keeps an immense iron ring around her neck. Don't worry, she has superhuman strength. She keeps it to remind herself that she is a normal woman and not [[spoiler:a princess of a country that (justifiably, apparently they were huge jerkasses) turned on her race and killed/drove them all out,]] though she dismisses offers to remove it as it is CLEARLY much too heavy.

* The Guy, the mascot of Music/{{Disturbed}}, is frequently portrayed with numerous chains strung across his body, often in part from having broken some restraints. Even when he hasn't, he generally wears them anyway to convey the same theme.

* ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'': Chuuya has a small chain on his hat. If someone's in need of being knocked down a peg (either because they're the target of the Port Mafia or because [[TheGadfly their name is Osamu Dazai]]) they're in for a beating.

* Cheza from ''WolfsRain'', who has golden manacles and a neck chain from her time in the scientist's [[PeopleJars People Jar]]. Subverted in that they're so ''not'' chain-like that they look like a matching necklace and bracelets, but considering the only thing she'd respond to was the blood of a wolf (believed extinct for two centuries), the scientists understandably didn't think she'd ever move enough to ''get'' out. Or that Darcia would break in and bust her out himself.

* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'''s poster boy Liu Kang is killed and resurrected as a zombie, complete with chains attached to his wrists. The opening video for ''MK: Armageddon'' even shows him using them in a whip-like manner to grab hold of another character, a move he [[GameplayAndStorySegregation isn't actually able to perform in the game]]. This one comes complete with total inexplicability: we saw Lang's death scene the previous game (Shang Tsung broke his neck), and there wee no chains on him then. And the zombie is explicitly Liu Kang's corpse (since we also see his spirit, mostly appearing to tell people how disgusted he is that his body was [[CameBackWrong brought back wrong]]. So one has to assume that Raiden put chains on Liu Kang's corpse before bringing it back [[GenreSavvy just to invoke this trope]].
