* In ''[[{{Deryni}} The Bishop's Heir]]'', Dhugal (who doesn't then know he's Deryni, never mind controlling his shields) reacts badly to the psychic energies unleashed at Duncan's consecration as bishop. Morgan uses a choke hold on Dhugal to get him away from the cathedral via Transfer Portal and avoid unwanted attention from potentially hostile clerics when Dhugal's shields prove impossible for Morgan to breach.

* GuyRitchie's ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' features both chokes at the same time. A thug sneaking up on Holmes is put in a blood choke by Watson.

At the end of the film, a big mook has to be slowly air choked because he's just [[TheBigGuy too darn big]] for anything else.

* A form of the "sleeper hold" variant comes up in ''Yoda: DarkRendezvous''. WeakButSkilled Padawan Scout has a particular move where she can grab someone's throat, cut off the blood flow, and render them unconscious in seconds without permanently damaging them. She uses it in Jedi Initiate tournaments to great effect. Scout is herself [[NeckLift grabbed and held up by the neck]] later in the novel, and later still is on the receiving end of a Force Choke, and in the narration we see her struggle to breathe and think past the reduced blood flow.

* In the ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/ManEatersOfZamboula", an executioner named Baal-pteor who kills the condemned by strangulation tries to do this to Conan, but his thick neck muscles prevent him. Conan then returns the favor and strangles Baal-pteor to death.

* Air chokes are, as has been noted, not very good for knocking people out -- but the pressure they exert on the trachea can be extremely uncomfortable, and the person escaping the choke might still be coughing an hour after being released.

The air choke is when someone is choked unconscious by cutting off his air supply. The air to the lungs is suspended. In fiction the person chokes and flails in silence, and after maybe thirty seconds he is rendered unconscious. In reality, cutting off someone's air supply would take several minutes and he'd be at full strength the whole time[[note]]A reasonably fit individual can hold their breath for up to a minute, so why should the choke be any different?[[/note]]. Do not choke someone this way.
