* The song "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" by Music/TheRadiatorsUS (named for the movie)—in the early days, they'd start up an actual chainsaw when performing the song live. (Which got them thrown out of a club or two.)

* Cars from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTedency'' can spring chainsaw-swords from his body.
* Akutabi Gamma, of ''Manga/ZombiePowder'', carries a chainsword as tall as he is. He wields it one-handed. Oddly, he's supposedly one of the greatest swordsmen in the world anyway, which makes you wonder why he needs to carry around an encumbering, gas-guzzling chunk of overkill as well. [[RuleOfCool Outside of the obvious]].

** To be fair, the word 'chainsaw' is never used, and none of the other characters seem to know what it is.
** In the French version, it is.

* ''VideoGame/{{Payday 2}}'' has the [[MemeticMutation OVE9000]] industrial circular saw as a weapon. [[SubvertedTrope It's absolutely worthless in a fight, given that it uses limited saw blades that can only be replenished by an ammo bag, and a durable blade will last for about four of the common]] {{Mook}} before wearing out. It is meant to be used as an UtilityWeapon, to saw open stationary items such as doors, deposit boxes and ATM. And for the purpose it is intended for, it is efficient. Said purpose just happens not to be direct combat.

** The Lumber Lite L2 chainsaw comes with the [[Film/Scarface1983 Scarface]] Character Pack as a melee weapon. [[SubvertedTrope Like the OVE saw, it's also considered a poor weapon]], though for different reasons - it does poor damage without a ChargedAttack, and charging an attack to full damage takes a whopping four seconds, leaving you very vulnerable to attack. On top of that, there are other melee weapons that do the chainsaw's job just as well, if not better, ultimately making the Lumber Lite redundant.

Added DiffLines:

* The chainsaw is used fairly realistically in ''VideoGame/ObsCure II''. It's not a weapon, but a tool, meant for cutting through downed trees and other obstacles that lay in your path. It even holds this utility during a boss fight, the player using the chainsaw to cut off a giant [[PlantPerson plant monster]]'s vine-tentacles when it lays them down on the ground. [[HillbillyHorrors Jedidiah]], on the other hand, uses a chainsaw as his primary weapon -- appropriate, given that he's a walking ShoutOut to [[Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre1974 Leatherface]]. The final scene where Jedidiah is taken down involves a chainsaw duel between him and Corey straight out of the aforementioned ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' (the two games came out the same year).
