* Justified with Flechette of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', who has a [[GadgeteerGenius tinker made]] chain fabrication machine installed in her arbalest, which when combined with her power to [[NoArcInArchery make a projectile ignore gravity]], allows her to overcome the difficulties inherent in this trope.

* ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' features the grappler, a lightweight rifle sized grapnel launcher with a magnetic head and vise-like claws. They're usually used by asteroid belt miners who'd rather not drift off into the deep black.

* [[OnePiece Usopp]], being a sometime GadgeteerGenius, debuted something along these lines in the Skypiea arc: it fired from his belt, enabling him (in theory) to swing from tree to tree. It was called something along the lines of "Usopp [[{{Tarzan}} AaahAahAahAahAahAah]]!" In practice, he didn't figure a good way to ''detach'', which kept him from actually getting anywhere.
* In ''ChronoCrusade'', Rosette has a grapnel gun built into her pistol that gets used once.

* The extremely useful grappling hook from the ''{{Tenchu}}'' series of {{ninja}} {{Stealth Based Game}}s is apparently an ordinary, hand-swung version -- but nonetheless shares all of the features of the Grappling-Hook Pistol, including the ability to almost instantly pull you to the anchoring point. Must be a ninja thing.

* Played straight in ''[[TheLordsOfCreation In the Courts of the Crimson Kings]]'' by SMStirling, thanks to BioPunk. A Martian 'grappeling hook' is a genetically-engineered octopoid creature that grabs onto the nearest object once it lands, thus avoiding all these problems.
