* In ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'' Grandpa Freeman can wield a belt with incomparable skill. Apparently beating one's grandson with a weapon enough times allows you to develop enough skill to disarm an angry pimp.

The slaves are whipped by the ''khalasar'', and Viserys ends up on the wrong end of one, being slowly strangled by it at one point.

** Izayoi from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'' equips whips or bows, despite her art depicting her with a dagger. She can still equip ninja swords, but she generally ends up with either of the latter 2 since none of the other ninjas can equip either of those. There's also a set of Queen equipment that includes a whip (which can turn enemies it hits into pigs, aptly enough), it being the only whip that a RedMage and a rebellious kung fu princess can use and former of which is involved in a whip-based CombinationAttack with the above-mentioned ninja, an female assistant to a handsome but somewhat weak king and a {{Stripperific}} summoner, aptly called Call Me Queen.

* Kratos from ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' has magic blades attached by chains to his arms that he uses like whips - in one scene in the second game you even use them to drive some giant stone horses. It's actually a different version of the blades with each game (the first is the Blades of Chaos, the second is the Blades of Athena, and the third game gives you the Blades of Exile).

* [[VideoGame/{{Prototype}} Alex Mercer]] has the Whipfist, a mutation that turns his arm into a black, flexible and extremely extendable whip-like appendage. If you think that's not cool enough, the most basic attack can ''slice a human in half''. And then there's the secondary attack which singles out a target and can destroy an attack helicopter from up to 30 meters away, even while falling. And after an upgrade, can even be used as an impromptu grappling hook to catch someone from afar. And it has cool [[ImAHumanitarian consume]] animations to boot.

* Creator/MichellePfeiffer, who played Catwoman in ''Film/BatmanReturns'', was said to be a natural with a whip... which just added to the sexy factor for the already sexy actress.

** Just to put that in perspective, the professional whip master who was on-set to teach her to use the thing pointed out that ''he'' would have been hard-pressed to demonstrate that level of accuracy.

* The ''sjaemboek'' or sjambok whip is considered pretty much synonymous with the old [[TheApartheidEra South Africa]] and consists of ten metres of rhinoceros hide rolled and coiled into a tapered cylindrical form between three and five feet long. It is derived from an Indonesian weapon used for slave management and arrived in Africa with Arab slavers. here, white settlers saw its potential and took the weapon up, adding their own refinements. It became synonymous with police riot control and is still used for this purpose by today's South African police force, albeit with a more ecologically friendly plastic version. The Indian ''lathi'' is a relative and while an imperial British hangover, is still used today by Indian police for public order purposes.

* Franziska von Karma in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' constantly carries a whip, which she uses on nearly everyone she meets. Her favorite victims are Phoenix and Gumshoe -- she seems to consider it almost affectionate, by the end, never mind that that thing ''hurts'' -- only eight-year-old [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Pearl Fey]] (which probably would have killed any possible sympathy for her,) paralyzed-from-the-waist-down [[WheelchairWoobie Acro]], middle-aged (and not the picture of health) [[CoolOldLady Sister Bikini]], [[DashingHispanic Godot]], who simply shamed her into compliance, [[BadassLongcoat Detective Badd]] ([[NonchalantDodge who swayed out of the way]]) and Shi-Long Lang (who ''caught'' the whip when Frannie tried to use it on him) manage to escape unscathed. Also notable in that she completely averts a {{Stripperiffic}} outfit, even to the point of constantly wearing gloves (at least while on the job).
