* An early arc in ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' had Hobbes tying Calvin to a chair so that he could try to escape it. Unfortunately, Calvin is no Houdini, and when his parents come in, they're convinced that he did this to himself.



* PlayedForDrama in the second manhwa of ''Manhwa/TheBreaker'', ''New Waves.'' When it's revealed that the doctor who helped Shiwoon overcome several members of the S.U.C was only trying to get close to him, Shiwoon is then shown StrappedToAnOperatingTable. It turned out that the doctor was after him for the {{Phlebotinum}} he was [[PhlebotinumRebel given in the previous manwa.]] He's given two options: join the S.U.C, or have his blood turned into a powerful {{Phlebotinum}} that will help the S.U.C qonquer Seoul. Since the doctor is [[spoiler: responsible for his mother's severe injuries in an S.U.C. attack]], he naturally refuses. So, the doctor promptly shoves a gag in his mouth and gets ready to turn him into a living blood bank.

To the captors themselves, they're likely to say "IHaveYouNowMyPretty" or "YouGotSpunk" or some variation/combination of the two. Both of which usually inspire the DefiantCaptive to be extra defiant.

Simple rope is popular among these villains. Others use handcuffs. Sedatives are rare unless the kidnapper uses it to do the initial nabbing. Some villains will invest in unbreakable chains made of {{Unobtainium}} to restrain a super-strong captive (and possibly [[FatalFlaw forget that whatever said chains are bolted to]] isn't made of the same stuff) of possibly include a PowerNullifier.

* The indie comedy ''Manalive'' features a scene at a southern boarding house where several tenants trick a wealthy snob named ''Rosamond'' into accepting her own comeuppance. Rosamond is asked to participate in a game called "Knights in Shining Armor" (where two knights fight over a princess). She refuses to play until they let her be the princess. Of course, that was their plan all along. The narrator says, "What she doesn't know is that this princess is a damsel in distress." It then cuts to Rosamond tied to a tree and gagged, looking angry. Her predicament is made worse when a toad hops onto her foot. A female tenant picks it up and holds it in Rosamond's face, saying, "Oh come on, it's a fairy tale. If you kiss it, it'll turn into a prince!" Rosamond squirms and protests through the gag.
