* Bowser, of ''{{Mario}}'' fame has manacles. Given that he's a ''king'' and has never been depicted as being chained up, he only wears them truly because of RuleOfCool.

* A later series by Creator/StudioGainax, ''Anime/MelodyOfOblivion'' has Sayoko, who wears manacles which do the exact same thing as Haruko's, pointing toward the man she's in love with. [[spoiler: The manacles are left over from when she was going to be sacrificed, but was saved by Kurofune. Also, they stop pointing toward him and start pointing to Bocca about midway through the series, for obvious reasons.]]

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has the Bloody Baron, ghost of Slytherin House, whose distinguishing features are being covered in chains and blood. The last book reveals that he wears them [[spoiler: out of guilt for killing Rowena Ravenclaw's daughter, which drove him to kill himself.]]

* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' there's Berserker, the Greek hero Herakles, and there's Gilgamesh's magical chain, "Enkidu", which responds to any divinity a captive has by growing stronger. As the son of Zeus, Berserker's divinity is highest ever seen in the series (since Gilgamesh lost most of his long beforehand). Despite that, Berserker still manages to break free with sheer strength and rage in order to protect his summoner. He's not a straight example in that he doesn't wear any part of the chains afterwards [[spoiler: indeed, Gilgamesh kills him shortly afterwards]], but his "breaking free" moment is iconic, and a part of one of the game's video intros.
