* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': The Grass/Steel Pokemon [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/597-598_6982.png Ferroseed and its evolution Ferrothorn]] from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Black and White]]''. Both are spiky ''metal plants'', and Ferrothorn pretty much fits ''all'' the criteria at the top of the page (alive, hanging, spins, on [[strike: chains]]vines). Obviously, using a contact move on either of them will result in the attacker taking damage.

* ''VideoGame/RogueLegacy'' has spikeballs as possible enemies that can be spawned in rooms. They always move in straight lines - horizontal, vertical, or diagonal, bouncing off walls and slopes. Unlike most other examples, these ones will self-destruct if they bounce too many times in quick succession (like if they spawn trapped in a small hallway).

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' has these as one of variant [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Trap_component trap components.]]]] Due to the way damage works, they're not too good on fleshy foes, as the spikes don't penetrate much, but the small contact area makes them excellent against hardened enemies and anything armored, often shattering bones. The fact they hit thrice per ball helps a lot, too.

** Has a few of them. For an example, in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', there are spikeballs spinning around in a few stages. In ''NewSuperMarioBros'' and ''NewSuperMarioBrosWii'', there are spike balls that act like enemies and destroy anything they touch.
