* Ikari in ''Manga/{{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.

But he's pretty showy about his BerserkButton. It's revealed that back in middle school he was TheDreaded due to being TheBerserker and the chains were part of his clothing style, which gave him the nickname Prison Chain Ikari.

For a little something extra at the end of your chain, see ChainedHeat. Needless to say, expect this trope to be FetishFuel for some. For chains as {{Improvised Weapon}}s, see ChainPain.

* Prince Josua of ''MemorySorrowAndThorn'' wears the manacle around his left wrist that his brother, King Elias, imprisoned him with. In his case, it's the humble version of the trope, and serves to emphasize his [[TheChainsOfCommanding personality]]. It also gets a ChekhovsGun moment at the end of the story, when it [[spoiler:saves his life from Elias' sword blow]].

* Early in SnowCrash, Y.T. gets arrested for going in to a burbclave while not on official Kourier business, and while they're processing her paperwork, they handcuff her to a radiator. She picks the lock and escapes with the help of Hiro, but she still takes the cuffs and wears them on one arm like a double bracelet because she thinks it looks cool.

* In the battle against Bahamut in GranblueFantasy, he spends the first half of the fight heavily chained, a remnant of his original sealing. When he [[TurnsRed goes into Overdrive]], he breaks the chains and unleashes a party-wiping 999999-damage laser.

* In the GBA iterations of the FireEmblem games, the General class has a chain which attaches their lance or axe to their arm. Why exactly this is helpful is uncertain, but that's made up for by the fact that watching a giant suit of armor throw a spear or an axe at someone and then yank it back via the chain is [[RuleOfCool simply too cool to question.]]

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'', anybody? Aries bestows upon Kratos the most {{Badass}} weapons ever forged that doubly exist so that he can control Kratos.... for awhile anyway.

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?
