* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': [[WeHaveReserves Bridgemen]] who commit serious infractions, such as murder or repeated theft, may be chained to a wall facing into a [[HostileWeather highstorm]]. This is tantamount to a death sentence, as highstorms are incredibly powerful, with winds capable of stripping skin off (assuming you aren't crushed by flying debris first), but it still allows the executioner to claim that "the Stormfather decided their fate," washing their hands of the matter.

This also leads to a potential TheManTheyCouldntHang scenario, as there is a very, very slim chance of surviving the process, whereupon one's sentence has been carried out and they can't be executed again. This amounts to a source of false hope for most, unless they have special powers.

* The movie ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' distorts the mythic Greek original somewhat, showing the rock-bound Andromeda being rescued from the Kraken by Perseus. To be fair, that's ''far'' from the ''only'' way the movie "distorts the mythic Greek"...

* In the ''{{Bionicle}}'' serial ''Federation of Fear'', the former Makuta leader, Miserix, is found chained to a cave wall, unable to escape despite his incredible amount of special powers. He spent centuries there absorbing the nearby creatures into his own essence to pad out his armor and make himself grow, but the chains increased in size with him. This cruel imprisonment was actually meant to keep him (and his still loyal Makuta brethren tasked with killing him) out of harm's way, by making sure the then-current leader would not learn about his existence.
