* In ''DeadmanWonderland'', Genkaku does this to Nagi to try to get him to revert back to being AxCrazy and [[InLoveWithYourCarnage so that he'll join the Undertakers]]. It's shown to have been done mostly in the form of drugs and MindRape.

** Fitz and the Fool return for a third trilogy, and we meet [[spoiler:the Fool, who has been tortured ''again''. This time they took the Silver from his fingers, and they took his eyesight. They also put him in a chair with screws in the back smeared with feces and ''slowly'' screwed them in. They wanted him to know he would die, ''and'' they wanted him to talk.]].

** Angelus (and by extension Angel) is implied to be good at this too. While torturing Giles also mentions how chainsaws are liable to make torture that much more fun. A pissed off Angel notes that he knows enough about blood transfusions to keep a person alive no matter what parts he cuts off.

** Angelus (and by extension Angel) is implied Angelus' entire M.O. revolves around this, both physically and psychologically. At the end of Buffy season 2, when he's captured Giles for information, he freely admits that he hopes Giles ''won't'' willingly tell him what he wants to know because he doesn't want to be good at this too. While torturing Giles also mentions how chainsaws are liable deprived of an opportunity to make torture that much more fun.

** Vamp from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' qualify as well. You must save [[spoiler:Otacon's step-sister]] from the flooded base. You must take her back to the Control Center in the first part of the Big Shell. However, the normal bridge was destroyed earlier, so you must take a floating path, complete with mines and guards. This trope comes out when she's grabbed by [[spoiler:Vamp]]. You shoot the bad guy and rush to Emma, only to discover that while she was grabbed, [[spoiler:Vamp ''knifed her in the back repeateadly'']]. And that bastard's not even dead yet!

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Near the end of the series, [[PlayingWithFire Roy Mustang]] subjects Envy to this once Envy reveals that he was the one who killed Maes Hughes, Mustang's best friend. Upon learning this, Mustang flies into an UnstoppableRage and burns Envy alive again and again, going so far as to [[EyeScream boil the fluid in his eyes]]. He even lets Envy [[HealingFactor regenerate himself]], outright stating that by the time he's done, Envy will have died a ''thousand'' deaths.

* At one point in ''Literature/AlteredCarbon'' Takeshi Kovacs is captured and loaded into a VR torture program. This allows his captors to torture him in the body of a woman, which is more vulnerable to their techniques, as well as torture him to death before starting again in a fresh virtual body. Also, the [[YearInsideHourOutside accelerated time in VR]] means that they can subject him to several days of torture in only a few minutes.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' series proper, there's Dr. David Wheeler who runs a therapy ranch for troubled teens in the episode "The Last Resort". Only his idea of "therapy" involves brainwashing, making the students at his clinic stand for hours on end while he harangues them about how worthless they are and how only he can save them, not allowing them to leave for anything, not even to go to the bathroom or to sleep. While this is bad enough in itself (and is a common tactic used in {{cult}}s and sometimes on prisoners of war), students who don't get with his program are sent off to ISO, which amounts to total sensory deprivation used as punishment. We don't see anyone undergoing ISO, but we ''are'' shown the harmful effects it has on those who are sent there.
