* In ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'', one of the weapons is a plasma whip. It's like the lightwhip from Franchise/StarWars, only ten times more awesome. Chainblade, a boss in ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingCommando Going Commando]]'', is an even better example, wielding ''[[DualWielding two]] Whip Swords.''.

** The game also had the spiked chain. Depending on who you asked it was either a GameBreaker or the only exotic weapon actually worth spending a feat on.

* Ries Argent, a main playable character from VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky The 3rd and Scarlet from VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel has this as weapon of choice. It is also implied that [[ChurchMilitant Gralsritter]] squires in VideoGame/KisekiSeries are trained to use what in this universe calls "Templar Sword". [[spoiler:This is a hint that Scarlet used to be member of Gralsritter, although she quit midway in her training.]]

A downplayed, more plausible (but still AwesomeButImpractical) version of this is a normal sword/knife tied to a rope or chain. It avoids the "cutting whip" problem, and it's easier to make, but then controlling it to actually hit enemies is another matter.

* Saber Alter in the Heaven's Feel scenario of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' gets one of these when she becomes a MightyGlacier, and it reappears with her in ''BattleMoonWars''. Specifically, she uses the energy from her sword like this. The sword itself is basically a palette swapped evil version of [[spoiler:Excalibur]], and is still as solid as it was before.

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV'': The Phantom Pain, Metal Gear Sahelanthropus' arsenal features one of these. Why it even HAS this when it sports twin Gatling guns, missiles, a flamethrower, and numerous other weapons, can best be explained by the RuleOfCool.

** In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', Julieta's customized Reginlaze Julia has a pair of more traditional Whip Swords mounted on its forearms; she's utterly shocked when an enemy pilot is able to dodge an attempted surprise attack with the whip form the very first time it's deployed.
