* One episode of ''CrossingJordan'' involved a serial killer who buries his victims alive -- with a ''walkie-talkie so he can hear their dying pleas''. Shudder.

* Clearly the most evil thing {{Spider Man}}'s enemy Kraven the Hunter did was to inflict this on the hero during the "Kraven's Last Hunt" storyline (also known as "Fearful Symmetry") the reason it's regarded as the definitive Kraven story. Having been driven completely AxeCrazy, Kraven confronts the hero, defeating him (using a gun, the weapon he has, up to this point, always hated, shooting the hero while helpless due to a tranquilizer dart) and believing him dead, buries him alive. Spidey eventually digs his way out, but it takes ''a week'', due to Spidey having to recover from the paralysis that leaves him [[AndIMustScream still conscious and unable to move.]] Indeed, this experience clearly gave him nightmares for years to come, as ''every'' time Kraven was mentioned from that point on focuses on that story.

* As part of his final scheme in ''ComicBook/KravensLastHunt'', Kraven the Hunter shoots Franchise/SpiderMan with a tranq dart and buries him alive outside his estate. Kraven then goes on to assume the identity of Spider-Man, until Peter finally digs himself out.

* Happens TWICE in ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. First in the episode "Deep Freeze" to a villanous WaltDisney-expy who's obsessed with immortality and has Mr Freeze help him undergo the same cryogenic process Freeze had. By the end of the episode, he's been frozen inside an iceberg at the bottom of the ocean, trapped forever.
** Also happens at the end of "Avatar" to an immortal, undead sorceress. She was technically already buried alive, but by the end, her tomb caves in on top of her. Assuming her immortality kept her alive through that, she is now trapped in a FateWorseThanDeath.

* ComicBook/{{Magneto}} does this to ComicBook/RedSkull in the aftermath of ''[[VillainTeamUp Acts of Vengeance]]'', during which SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} had manipulated the two into working together. Given that Magneto is a Holocaust survivor and Red Skull was Hitler's right-hand man, this had been a rather ill-conceived partnership. Red Skull survives because his [[TheDragon Dragon]], Crossbones, rescues him from the tomb Magneto had created.

* The French comic "Les Maitres de l'Orge" has a disturbing variant: Adrien Steenfort entombs his son's murderer Garcin on the spot of the murder, chaining him to a wall before bricking it up. Every evening, he returns to the wall and removes a brick, giving Garcin just enough food and water to live. This goes on for ''twelve years'', with Steenfort using Garcin as his confident, before Steenfort has a heart attack due to financial problems and ends up unconscious for several days. By the time he's out of the hospital, Garcin is dead, and Steenfort burns his body before shooting himself, expressly likening talking with him as a drug.
