** & Bulkhead can turn his fist into a wrecking ball that he can also [[RocketPunch shoot as a projectile]]. This is awesome. Jazz has [[LaserBlade energy nunchucks]]; if you're wondering how they stay together, well, RuleOfCool. The Decepticon Oil Slick has a weapon that's basically two halves of a barrel connected by a long chain. The Dinobot Swoop also has a flail-in common with the weapons of the other Dinobots, it can [[IncendiaryExponent burst into flames]].

* ''{{Transformers}}'' has quite a few:
** Megatron used an [[EnergyWeapons energon flail]] in the second episode of ''TransformersGeneration1'', which was never seen again but was made available with come reissues of the toy.
** Also in the G1 cartoon were the Sharkticons (which despite the name looked like weird frog-piranha monsters than sharks) that could use their tails as flails in robot mode. An action figure was made under the name "Gnaw."
** In ''TransformersAnimated,'' Bulkhead can turn his fist into a wrecking ball that he can also [[RocketPunch shoot as a projectile]]. This is awesome.

* The "ball and chain" type flail seems to have been rarer in Europe than the agricultural flail, judging by its few depictions in art and almost complete lack of them in texts. Several historians have questioned whether they existed at all because of this scant documentation and the fact that many flails of this type in museums have turned out to be forgeries. Shafted weapons expert John Waldman has examined a few in private collections that he believed to be authentic, but even if they did exist they were certainly rare. It probably had to do with their inherent impracticality and danger to the user.

* Agricultural flails make threshing more efficient by adding force to each blow through centrifugal force. Peasant conscripts militarized them by attaching metal spikes. The 15th century Hussites took that to the extreme.
* Medieval knightly "ball and chain" flails offer a few advantages. Centrifugal force adds force to the impact, and the shock of impact is not transferred back to the wielder. It can also wrap around an opponent's shield.
