* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' features four different flails, the Ball o' Hurt found in shadow orbs of TheCorruption, the Blue Moon found in the locked chests of the dungeon, the Sunfury found in the shadow chests of the underworld, which can set enemies on fire, the Dao of Pao that's crafted in hardmode with a Ying-Yang theme and the ability to confuse enemies, and lastly, the Flower Pow which has a 16.67% chance to drop from Plantera, that launches petals torward enemies as long as the fire button is held and there are enemies near. If you hold down the mouse button and hold left and right at the right times, you can even get the flail "spinning" around your character.

** While different mechanically from other flails in the game, the Solar Eruption is a giant flaming spear head on a chain. It does extremely high damage, goes through solid blocks, and can hit a target multiple times. It also causes explosions centered on any enemy it hits and inflicts Daybroken, which is a more powerful version of On Fire debuff that can't be put out by water and even spreads to other enemies.

* Grenades in the ''GearsOfWar'' series are attached to a stick by a length of chain. Epic Flail indeed. Also, the Locust Mauler is a GiantMook that carries a huge shield and uses a flail once it closes in.

Added DiffLines:

* The Heavy Infantryman unit in ''VideoGame/BattleForWesnoth'' replaces its mace with a flail when advancing to a level 2 Shock Trooper. Funnily enough, if it manages to advance to a level 3 Iron Mauler, it switches ''back'' to using a mace; there's no practical difference between the weapons other than the accompanying sound effect in battle (they're both impact melee weapons, both get the same number of attacks, and damage goes up with level either way), but it ''may'' make one stop and wonder a bit.

Added DiffLines:

* In early series of ''Series/RobotWars'' quite a few competitors tried to use weights dangling from chains as flail weapons, but [[JokeItem they never did any damage at all]]. In the 3rd series of the reboot, a CrazyAwesome robot called Nuts 2 finally managed to evolve from a JokeCharacter to a LethalJokeCharacter by spinning so fast that its chain flails could actually strike with enough force to cave in armour and smash components, and [[spoiler:it ended up with ''joint 3rd place'' in the series, at one point even [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable overcoming the unstoppable reigning champions, Carbide,]] when their flails [[AttackItsWeakPoint disabled the drive chain for Carbide's spinning blade weapon]]!]]

*** The Turn A's [[LimitBreak SP Attack]] in ''DynastyWarriorsGundam 2'' has it swinging two flails around in circles. It also uses the flails in a regular attack that's good for clearing crowds.

* Dhelmise, the Sea Creeper Pokémon introduced in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', uses a nearly '''12'10'' tall anchor''' attached to a VariableLengthChain as an flail. The sheer power of it can OneHitKO a Wailord.
