** The 5th game features the "Grind Blade" a six [[KillItWithFire flaming]], [[EverythingIsBetterWithSpinning rotating]] chainsaws. Not just any weapon; it is classified as an Overed (Ultimate in the US/EU versions) Weapon, and once activated, completely replaces the left arm and purges the right arm weapon, and one hit ''will'' kill any AC it comes into contact with. Steep requirements make this weapon situational at best, but [[RuleOfCool Mech-mounted gigantic sextuple rotating superheated chainsaws]]!

* ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore 5'' brings us one of the most awesome chainsaws to ever be wielded by a mecha. The most powerful weapon, the Grind Blade, consists of 6 chainsaws that can be positioned either adjacent to each other, or for even more awesomeness and destructive power, in a gatling-gun-like formation. Each of the chainsaws are about as long as the mech's own arms, possibly even longer, and in total, the weapon is able to dish out... pretty large amounts of damage. According to the customization-trailer, it is the most powerful weapon in the entire game, being able to rip apart even the strongest enemy mechs in seconds. But given its sheer size, it isn't the best weapon for all situations, such as dealing with smaller, faster enemies or when you need high speed to evade attacks easily.

* ''Persona5'' gives us a hilarious version of this trope. Within ''ShinMegamiTensei'' history, there is a chance a FusionDance between two demons/personas could go awry. This leads to humorous scenes enough, but ''Persona 5'' ups the ante in this regard: if a fusion accident happens (with the fusion taking the form of an execution), your two assistants, [[GoodCopBadCop Caroline and Justine]], will break out a [[{{BFS}} huge freakin' chainsaw]] [[CrazyAwesome to lop off the demon's head!]] Seriously, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNdF1InU80c the results need to be seen to be believed.]]

* The classic horror movie ''Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre1974'' (sic) just might be the {{Trope Maker|s}}. Taken to a whole new level in [[Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre2 the sequel]], which features Dennis Hopper [[DualWielding dual-wielding]] chainsaws in a climactic duel against Leatherface. And Leatherface's ''drive-by chainsawing'' in the same film.

* ''Film/TigerOnTheBeat'', where the hero and villain have a final kung fu showdown with chainsaws. This is the same movie that had Chow Yun-Fat using a shotgun-on-a-string that essentially let him fire around corners to kill bad guys. Yeah. It's that kind of movie.

* "Das deutsche Kettensägenmassaker" by Christoph Schlingensief, a political satire on the reunification of Germany, is a nod to the Texas original already in the title.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has the Ancient Bladesaw, which is a [[LaserBlade laser chainsaw]] with a hilt. It has one of the highest damage ratings out of all two-handed weaponry, although some of the parts required to make them are hard to come by.

* The ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series from ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity Vice City]]'' onwards has a couple of chainsaws scattered around the map. As the guns dealer from ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas San Andreas]]'' would say: "works best in a crowded area".

** ''{{Heretic}}'' features the Gauntlets of the Necromancer, functionally identical to the chainsaw of VideoGame/{{Doom}}, but made more practical by the limited number of enemies that possesses ranged attacks. When powered up using a Tome of Power, not only do they rip into enemies with red magical lightning, they also vampirically heal you.

** Extremely badass doomers are known to complete the game without using any weapon other than the chainsaw and, when absolutely needed, the pistol. This is known as [[http://doom.wikia.com/wiki/UV_Tyson Tyson]] style, preferably done on ultra violence (UV Tyson). [[http://www.doom2.net/~compet-n/database/cn.cgi?record:udoom:tyson+ 2005:7 The COMPET-N]] has demos of all four boss levels from the original Doom being played "Tyson" style, with only the fists. The Cyberdemon can be punched to death, but it takes patience, dexterity, precision, strategy, and a very long time (28 minutes 10 seconds is the record). The two Spiderdemons can be lured into being killed by other monsters.

** The game also has the Dual-Saw, which is a paired set of circular saws that are built to cut ''rock''. They're more effective against mech armor than chainsaws (though still not a terribly effective weapon).
