The Chain whip has gone through various designs throughout the years. When it was first introduced in V, the whip had a simple design that consisted of a metal chain, a handle, and a weight at the other end for striking enemies. This design appears in VI, as well as remake versions of III. When the Chain whip reappeared in VII, the handle became more elaborate, gaining gold sections at the top and bottom, as well as a decorative golden cross at the end, true to the weapon's Japanese name. The weight at the end of the whip also became slightly larger. The Chain whip has a completely different design in VIII, featuring a sharp silver and gold arrowhead at the end and a gold and silver handle with a loop. This design is used in IX and Heroes.

The chain whip is a real-life weapon that is used in traditional Chinese martial arts, originating as far back as the Jìn Dynasty. The whip consists of several metal rods joined end-to-end by rings to form a flexible chain, with a handle on one end and a metal dart at the other end, typically used for slashing or piercing one's opponent.
