* ''Videogame/{{Starbound}}'' has the Glitch as a race born of an experiment to test out how civilizations advanced, who got stuck in MedievalStasis when their programming bugged out. The response of the rest when one figures it out and turns self-aware? This trope.

* ''VideoGame/JeanneDArc'', naturally (see RealLife example below). In a twist, however, it is not Jeanne who suffers this fate, as she's [[NeverFoundTheBody currently missing]] and [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat presumed dead]]. Rather, the girl who's burned at the stake is her best friend [[ReplacementGoldfish Liane, who had been forced to impersonate her friend by the French commanders]] [[ElCidPloy in order to keep morale up]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IF4bQOSKQQ Jeanne even tries to *stop* Liane's execution, but isn't able to get there in time]].

* Both subverted and played straight with two songs off the RobZombie album 'Educated Horses'. 'American Witch' subverts the trope with the line "We all hang high - 20 innocents" (referencing the twenty victims of the Salem Witch Trials), while 'Lords of Salem' plays it straight and subverts it with the line "Burn me and hang me".
