* Loki, the {{Norse|Mythology}} trickster god from the Literature/{{Edda}} and father of Mišgaršsormur, Fenrir the wolf and the death goddess Hel. Was chained to a rock with the entrails of his murdered sons, and a snake hanging over him dripping poisonous acid into his face. Whenever his wife went outside to empty out the bowl she was holding up to catch the drops, Loki's pain made him writhe in his bonds, which created earthquakes. The prophecy was his chains would fail when Ragnarök start. Will be killed in the FinalBattle between the gods of Įsgaršr and their enemies. * In Greek mythology, the Trojan princess Hesione was Chained to a Rock to appease a sea monster set loose because the king of Troy had cheated the gods of their payment for building the walls of Troy. Hercules rescued her. (Whereupon the king of Troy [[DudeWheresMyRespect tried to cheat him]], and Hercules sacked Troy.)

* ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982'' features three examples. When Conan first encounters his future sidekick Subotai, he is chained to a rock to be eaten by wolves as punishment for various crimes. Later, Conan himself is tied to a tree to be eaten by vultures. Finally, the DamselInDistress gets this treatment by the heroes when they lay a trap for the BigBad's war party, though in this case it was more as bait than to kill her.

* Played straight in Literature/TheLastApprentice series, when as a young woman, the main character's mother is chained to a rock [[spoiler: The chain used was silver, which burnt her due to her being a lamia witch, and she was also harmed by sunlight for similar reasons.]] And they nailed her hand to the rock, although she pulled it free with no effort once rescued. rather than a monster, however, she was left to suffer for several days before her enemies would return to drain her of blood. Predictably, the person who rescued her became her husband. The silver chain was eventually given to her son, who used it as a weapon from the second book onwards.
