* The ''Jessica Blandy'' spin-off ''The Path of Jessica'' has Anita Royola aka Red Pigment as the main danger in the second issue. She has her victims drowned this way at a private beach. Whenever the weather is good and she's in the mood, she goes for a swim in her "garden". Naked.

* PlayedWith in "Styrofoam Boots" by ModestMouse, where the lyrics refer to wearing very bouyant styrofoam boots instead of being weighed down by heavy ones, still drowning you, but upside down.
--> You'll be drowned in boots like mafia, but your feet'll still float like Christ.

* In a "Fractured Fairytales" segment from ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' that parodied "Sleeping Beauty", Prince Charming ([[TakeThat who bore a striking resemblance to]] WaltDisney) decided not to kiss Sleeping Beauty awake, but to build a theme park around her ("Awake, she's just a princess. Asleep, she's a goldmine!"). When the evil fairy who cast the spell on Beauty showed up demanding a cut of the profits, Charming showed her a new "submarine ride" he set up as an attraction, insisting that the cement shoes were part of the ride ("It's just a safety precaution, the state makes us do it.")

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' fic [[http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=25907&chapter=8 Ten Moments]], the Eighth Doctor is nearly given this treatment while in the middle of foiling some unspecified evil plot. After failing to convince the mobsters that's it's in their best interests to let him go, he simply turns the concrete to dust with his sonic screwdriver. The only thing that ''really'' annoys him is that they've ruined his shoes.

* An old skit from ''Series/TheElectricCompany'' involves two StupidCrooks holding a tied up and gagged hostage and threatening to apply this trope unless he spills "what we want to know". Unfortunately - for them - they get into a heated argument about whether the material is actually cement or concrete, until the captive manages to get loose and find a cop. (And to add insult to injury, after said cop hauls them away - still arguing over it - the would-be victim says to the viewer that [[ShaggyDogStory he had no idea what they wanted him to tell]] them in the first place.)

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' uses the construction site variation. Major General Olivier Mira Armstrong, a LadyOfWar and FourStarBadass in charge of Fort Briggs (home of the toughest troops in Amestris), plays along with SmugSnake Lt. General Raven from Central Command to find out about the AncientConspiracy that the Elric brothers are up against, having already seen some rather shady behavior from him. She learns that the Central leaders have been offered immortality in exchange for furthering Father's plans, and Raven offers her the opportunity to gain immortality as well. As she leads him down to a construction site, Raven rants about how the weak of Amestris will become the foundation for the strong. Having finally heard enough, Olivier stabs Raven in the hand, retorts that ''he'' is the weak one, having become a [[FallenHero shell of his former self]], and slashes him before knocking him into the newly-poured cement floor. As Raven drowns, she [[PreMortemOneLiner comments]] that [[KarmicDeath the weak will indeed become the foundation for the strong]] - in this case, Raven becoming the foundation for Briggs.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' episode "[=CatDog=] sent me", Cat does this to Winslow after the latter squeals to the police about Cat's black market burger bone business. Winslow later attaches a spring to it so he can use it to get around.
