** In the present day of the story, as Dolarhyde's "Dragon" persona starts feeling more separate and hostile within his deranged mind, one way it keeps him in line is by making a similar threat. Which, surreally, requires D to physically go through the motions.

* David's infamous CollectionSidequest in ''Literature/TheBible'' had King Saul order him to bring back [[TwentyBearAsses 100 foreskins]] from Philistines he killed in battle as proof of his bravery (presumably a safeguard against cheating, since only their Gentile enemies still had foreskins to collect). [[UpToEleven David brought back 200.]]

* ''{{Literature/Ender|sGame}}'' used the groin attack on bullies in order to make an example out of them to stop other people from picking on him. His guilt over hurting people, the graphic descriptions of his victims' reaction to the attack, and the fact that Ender, near the end of the book, finds out that [[spoiler: he actually '''killed''' two people like this]] push the whole thing into a rather horrible [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction of the trope. He didn't kill them by kicking them in the groin; those were humility shots after the damage had been done.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/HollowPlaces,'' the three main characters use an anomaly to travel to a serial killer's cell and stab him in three places while he sleeps. Jeffery and Austin stab him in the neck and heart, respectively. Isabella stabs him in the crotch, leaving it in "tattered remains". [[RasputinianDeath Too bad this isn't quite enough to take him out, at least not immediately.]]

* No idea if the actual story saw print, but in D.P. Lyle's ''Murder And Mayhem'', the author (a doctor) compiles his newsletter responses to mystery writers' questions about wounds, poisons, and the like. One of the odder questions from an aspiring writer concerned a teenage female character's best choice of irritating substances with which to sabotage the prophylactic diaphragm of her father's mistress. Dr. Lyle's recommendation, best suited to inflict a double GroinAttack on the mistress ''and'' her father next time the cheaters had sex? '''Tabasco'''. [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce Think about it.]]
