* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' begins and ends with a woman named Cloaca Devlin being burned at the stake by the heroes. Her crime? The heresy of claiming to be a female bishop, though she did ''not'' help her case by claiming to have worshiped Isis for years at her trial.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has this when a mystical trap causes Lelouch to see images of C.C.'s past, including multiple gruesome "deaths" -- one of which was, of course, burning at the stake. Justified in that C.C. is both [[HealingFactor immortal]] and [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld ageless]], meaning she did indeed live through the time when people were doing this sort of thing. It doesn't help matters that official sources both inside and outside the anime call her a witch.
