* ''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]].

* [[http://postalmuseum.si.edu/exhibits/images/2c1f_7_ondisplay2.jpg Owney the Postal Dog]], mascot of the U.S. Railway Mail Service in the 1890s, was a travel-loving mutt who habitually hitched rides on the postal trains to travel hundreds of miles cross-country. To ensure their beloved mascot's safety from animal-control officials, the postal workers registered him for dog-license tags in dozens of towns and cities, eventually linking them all together with lightweight chains to construct a full-body "vest" the little dog could wear during his travels.

* 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 then on one arm like a double bracelet because she thinks it looks cool.

* [[MamaBear Rosa]] from the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' series had a thick, metal collar welded around her neck with shackles attached to her wrists and ankles connected by chains, although they don't seem to actually impede her movement. They were placed there when she was incarcerated by the Umbra Witch clan for breaking their code by having a child with a Lumen Sage, and they possibly act as a PowerLimiter. In ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta 2}}'' she even uses them as an ImprovisedWeapon to slaughter several angels during the Witch Hunts ... well, [[CutscenePowerToTheMax in the cutscenes anyway]].

* Kukuri's guardian angel Abraxas in ''ElevenEyes'', a representation of her soul, is restrained as much as possible. Its mouth and eyes are covered and its hands are bound. Yet it can still unleash some powerful mace attacks.

* In ''[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate/Stay Night]]'' 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.

* Though [[SoulSeries Voldo]] doesn't own costumes with chains on them, there is a memorable mission in Soul IV. Nightmare has ravaging the countryside and as you chase him down you come across a large town that is destroyed and abandoned. The description explains that in the chaos, many prisoners were released (possibly by nightmare) from the local dungeon including a guy who is found clanging onto a wall like a spider. He simply hisses at the hero and attacks him. He has so many restraints that he completely absorbs most damage and the only way to defeat him is by using power attacks to throw him forcibly across the walls for concussion damage.
