I'm looking for any magical weapons or artifacts which have the power to bind the wielder's enemies. It can be literally binding them with conjured chains, or just something like paralyzing them temporarily. Basically, making them unable to move and fight back for a while, like the Hold Person spell does in D&D.

For example: a magical staff which will make a person it's pointed at unable to move when a spell is spoken.

It just needs to be from an existing book series (or a movie, a game, etc.)

I agree with Richard when he claims that it's too broad, but still, you deserve an awnser nonetheless.

It's pretty easy to think about one example, let's take Harry Potter:

Here's the description of the Full Body-Bind Curse in the Harry Potter Universe:

"Neville's arms snapped to his sides. His legs sprang together. His whole body rigid, he swayed where he stood and then fell flat on his face, stiff as a board. Neville's jaws were jammed together so he couldn't speak. Only his eyes were moving, looking at them in horror."

It fits under your description of:

For example: a magical staff which will make a person it's pointed at unable to move when a spell is spoken.

In this case, a wand
