* Graphically presented in ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist'', when the Romans [[{{Gorn}} flog the ever-living-shit out of]] UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}. A bit of accidental EnforcedMethodActing is involved -- in one take, the whip actually hit the actor, instead of the board they'd placed on him to protect his back.

* In the fake movie trailer for ''Buggery On The High Seas'' from Creator/CheechAndChong's "Pedro And Man At The Drive-In" sketch from the ''Los Cochinos'' album, one of the pirates gets flogged for sassing the ship's captain, which starts off sounding painful but then his reaction turns to ecstatic joy with each whip lash he receives.

* In ''Series/{{Roots}}'' (as in real history) the slaves are whipped for just about any reason. You would think some masters would [[PragmaticVillainy prefer]] to limit this though, as it reduces a slave's ability to work and their value at auction (who wants a slave that needs to be whipped constantly?). In RealLife, that was usually the case for that exact reason. Flogging isn't for the benefit of the one person being flogged. It's for the benefit of the twenty people forced to watch.
* ''Series/ChappellesShow'' does a sketch poking fun at the actors of ''Series/{{Roots}}'' during a whipping scene.

* ''{{ComicBook/Preacher}}'': When the future Saint of Killers ends up in Hell, his hatred for those who delayed him in getting medicine back to his family is such that it ''extinguishes'' the fires of Hell. When Satan finds out he flogs the man so mercilessly his spine is the only things connecting both halves of his body, and even that isn't enough to break him. Only by taking the Angel of Death's place does he leave, allowing the fires to restart ([[spoiler:and killing Satan as he leaves over an insult]]).

* The Flagellant DLC class from the ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' expansion ''The Crimson Court'' uses flagellation (hence the name) as a source of his abilities and power, which mostly come in the form of high bleed damage and healing skills. He even uses it to relieve stress and status effects when camping, eschewing the traditional forms of comfort.
* Harrow from {{VideoGame/Warframe}} uses his signature thurible to whip himself in his ability animations, particularly when using his "Penance" ability, which sacrifices all of his current shields to provide a life steal for his allies alongside a passive fire rate and reload speed bonus.
