* Cody from ''StreetFighter Alpha 3'', an escaped convict, wears handcuffs. In one of his taunts, he easily puts them off and then on again. This is because he wears them by choice, as his fighting ability has increased to the point that he requires a PowerLimiter in order to even be remotely challenged by anyone. In fact, breaking out of prison in the first place was spurred by his incessant boredom growing out of his head with no one to fight; he ends up going back afterwards because he still admits he's not a very upstanding guy.

* Cody from ''StreetFighter Alpha 3'', a recently escaped convict, wears handcuffs. In one of his taunts, he easily slips them off and on again. This is because he wears them by choice, as his fighting ability has surpassed so many of those he meets he needs a PowerLimiter in order to even be remotely challenged by anyone (heck, breaking out of prison in the first place was only spurred by his incessant boredom growing out of his head with no one to fight; he ends up going back afterwards because he still admits he's not a very upstanding guy).
* Oro from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'' has one arm tied inside his gi. He refuses to use it until and unless he finds an opponent his equal.
** Though he'll occasionally pull out his other arm to power up one of his Super Arts, or to perform [[WrestlerInAllOfUs the mother of all body slams.]]

* In the first ''BaldursGate'', bandits and guards are occasionally heard quipping "I can take Drizzt with both hands tied behind my back.". With a cheat code, it is possible to summon Drizzt and prove how terribly wrong they are, as Drizzt is totally {{Badass}} in this game...

* One [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Star Wars comic]] showed a young Ki-Adi-Mundi tracking down a group of bandits on his homeworld. Being a young and brash man, he boasted that he could beat the leader with his hands tied behind his back. So she takes him up on it, [[SubvertedTrope and]] RealityEnsues.

* Discussed and parodied in one episode of ''MutantLeague'', when Razor Kidd tells the strong {{Badass}}, "I can beat you with one hand tied behind my back!" Of course, the strong guy rips off Razor's arm as a literal response, and the latter snaps back, "Hey! I said ''tied!''" Razor even tries to kick the strong one, who quickly rips off his leg as well!

* In the first book of the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, several characters are captured, and one in particular, a boundary warden named Chase, has his hands tied behind his back (because he'd ''already'' killed five of the nine attackers on his own). When a suitable distraction happens, he tackles one of the captors and snaps his neck with his legs before being beaten savagely by the captor's leader. He's standing up again within minutes, leading one of the other characters to remark that he's far tougher than he has any right to be.

* There's a section near the beginning of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' where Bruce Wayne gets arrested on bogus charges for speaking out against Arkham City, and after he gets thrown into the prison himself, you to fight off a few groups of goons as a still-handcuffed Bruce.

Partway through the fight, Bruce kicks so much ass ''the handcuffs '''shatter'''''.

* Ryuji Yamazaki of the ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' and ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series kicks copious amounts of ass with one hand in his pocket (though he'll occasionally pull it out to attack, revealing he's carrying a knife in his other hand.) In his case it is not a self-imposed handicap but rather a sign of respect for a gangster he taught him everything he knows about the life.
