Yeah, Indiana Jones uses a bull whip in all of his books, games, and
movies. When he uses it to swing across a chasm or something the end of
it wraps around something a couple of times, and then he swings across.
Like you say that isn't exactly realistic, but is cool anyway, and very
creative for George Lucas to come up with that idea.
For our purposes we can use something more realistic like a grappling
hook. Those are just a hook tied to a rope, and those are at least real.
Though, the grappling gun like you see Batman with is pure fiction.\
