* ''RiseOfTheKasai'' features this as a reoccuring boss type; tentacles from an underground monster will burst out in a large area and the player has to hack them apart one at a time. Some are thin grabbers, some are spiked with mace heads, some are armored, and one has a grasper, or possibly the creature's mouth.

* The [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranids]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have a variety of specialized, weaponized appendages, running the gamut from the flesh hooks a lictor uses to grapple up a cliff, to the feeder tendrils genestealers use to [[BrainFood eat your brains]], to skyscraper-sized tentacles their [[BattlefleetGothic living spaceships]] use to break enemy vessels apart. Quite a few of them are also ''bladed''.
** Daemons of [[HornyDevils Slaanesh]] have ''weaponized'' Naughty Tentacles, and [[CombatSadomasochist given their nature]] it can quite difficult to tell how they're using them at any given time.
** Members of the [[CargoCult Adeptus Mechanicus]] can be outfitted with [[ArtificialLimbs mechadendrites]] which are essentially robotic tentacles. Although most of them are designed for technical or medical work, they still have secondary combat capabilities, when not outright armed with huge cutters, massive hydraulic claws, or pistols. In the roleplay lines, the only limits to the amount you have is the amount you can afford, turning many high-level Tech-priest [[PlayerCharacter PCs]] into writhing masses of mechadendrites with a partially-organic core.
