* This was a regular staple of Jack Bauer on ''Series/TwentyFour'' to the point of being something of a SignatureMove and known in some circles as the "patented Jack Bauer sleeper hold." The ''24'' wiki indicates that it was used a total of 13 times on the series, and this despite the fact that it didn't first appear until the third season. It even came with its own CatchPhrase.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 3rd Edition had a wizard/sorcerer spell called Choke, which worked similarly to the Force Grip Darth Vader liked using in ''Franchise/StarWars''. It was pathetically underpowered and useless.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Darth Vader's Force Choke appears to be a long distance mystical air choke. Slow, unpleasant, unstoppable. Very dark-sidey.

* The [[TheUndead Redead]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' is infamous for this, doubles as NightmareFuel by how they ride on Link's back and ''[[FreudWasRight hump him to death]]''.

* In ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', Alex's Headbutt changes to a Choke Hold after turning an opponent around with his Flash Chop. The attack doesn't do much damage but it swiftly fills up the stun meter.
