* ''Fanfic/MortalKombatDesperation'' has Kano torture Cassie Cage after he and a corrupted Raiden kidnap her in order to keep her parents and S-F in line.
** In the Desperation Omake in ''Fanfic/MortalKombatVsMarvelUniverse'' it's ''Kano'' who is on the receiving end of the torture by that fic's version of Cassie Cage.
** Speaking of the aforementioned fanfic, Kano gets it even worse in an omake; his crotch is destroyed, one his legs is sliced into kibble, his faceplate is wrenched off his face and Cassie digs her thumb into the eye socket. Then Cassie kills him via his [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Knife to Meet You]] fatality.

* In ''SakuraGari'' [[DepravedBisexual Katsuragi]] tortures Masataka because he's {{Yandere}} for Souma who is in love with Masataka. He does so by drugging Masataka after inviting him to his house for tea, tying him up, and then raping him. He follows that by [[spoiler:whipping him, beating him up, and sticking a household object up Masataka's anus right after raping him]]. He then orders Masataka to give up on Souma and [[spoiler:submerges his hand in boiling hot tea and Masataka retaliates by throwing the tea in Katsuragi's eyes, which allows him to escape.]]
