*** The Cruciatus Curse, a supreme form of torture such that no character has ever been shown withstanding it, seems to be definitively cold-blooded; it works best when the caster is in control, or who delights in the pain caused, whereas casting it out of spite or righteous anger is far less effective. Although, that said, it works just fine for Harry in Book 7 on Carrow because he "really means it".

This is demonstrated in Book 5 when Harry himself tries to use the curse against Bellatrix in revenge for her killing Sirius.

* In Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/IfThisGoesOn...'', Johnny is captured and tortured by the authorities of the CorruptChurch. Later, when he is offered a position as assassin (to ensure he knows how serious his commitment must be), they point out that he has at least one useful qualification for it -- they ''know'' that if the enemy catches him and puts him to the Question, he won't crack.

** Frieza's ''entire fighting style'' revolves around this. He impales Krillin on his horn, slowly crushes Gohan's skull, blasts Piccolo with a BeamSpam, [[MindRape mind rapes]] Vegeta for ten minutes and then savagely beats him for another ten minutes, and spends a ''really'' long time beating up Goku while at 50% power, at one point holding him underwater and nearly drowning him.
