** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', [[ANaziByAnyOtherName the Thalmor]] are exceptionally fond of this trope. In addition to grisly blood spatters and skeletons chained to the walls, their dungeons usually contain racks, embalming tools, and ''axes''. In one quest you even interrupt an in-progress interrogation, which is about as unpleasant as you'd expect.

*** A dedicated torture chamber is one of the things you can buy for the new Dark Brotherhood sanctuary. Torturing victims within reveals the location of hidden treasure, and are also useful for training up your skills (but be careful not to kill them, as they won't respawn).

* ''Film/ActOfValor'': CIA agent Lisa Morales is severely tortured, culminating with holes drilled through her hands and feet.
* The notorious ''Film/GuineaPig'' film series, released in Japan from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, are nothing ''but'' graphic depiction of hardcore torture, often without even the pretense of a story. The most (in)famous one, ''Flowers Of Flesh And Blood'', depicts a woman being slowly dismembered by a psychopath. There's even an UrbanLegend that Creator/CharlieSheen watched it, thought it was a legitimate snuff film, and reported it to the FBI.

** Harry suffers this at the end of Book 4 when Voldermort ties him a gravestone and tortures him repeatedly while the death eaters watch.
*** 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. This is demonstrated in Book 5 when Harry himself tries to use the curse against Bellatrix in revenge for her killing Sirius. Although, that said, it works just fine for Harry in Book 7 on Carrow because he "really means it".

** The Halls of Agony from ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' were the old torture chambers of King Leoric, back when he was still alive and insane. In addition to having many people (up to and including his own queen) executed out of paranoia brought on by Diablo's attempts to take over his mind and the evil whisperings of Archbishop Lazarus, he had quite a lot of people put to the torture. The Darkening was not a fun time to live through.
** Maghda's Dark Coven (and by extension, the minions of Belial) are quite fond of torturing others. In particular, the Coven's use of torture is used to power their magic, including illusions.

It's suggested that while Thane and [[BigBad The Garuda]] are waiting to kill Lauren until they can do it in front of Bo, the torture is mainly for [[ForTheEvulz fun]].

Joker's methods include skinning him with a scalpel, burning him, using drills, power tools, acid, and tazers on him, and ''nailing him to a cross with railroad spikes, with razor wire wrapped around his head.'' The worst part? Beast Boy's regenerative abilities keep him from dying, so the Joker can do anything he wants to him for however long he wants. Brrrrr.

He ends up getting beaten, whipped, burned, and way too many bones broken, including his arms and most of his fingers. Cerean blood parasites are released onto his skin to burrow around in his flesh. And when it becomes obvious he isn't going to talk, his captor lowers his chained body to the floor and repeatedly rapes him. There are also drugs, first to amplify the pain he's feeling, and then to ammplify the sexual sensations of the rape. The only good thing is that the pain and terror he feels are like a homing beacon in the Force for Luke, Leia and Chewie to follow to find him. When they arrive, he's near death, and he actually does die for a few moments in Leia's arms before she manages to revive him. Averts the "all's well that ends well" thing, Han struggles greatly with the aftermath in the sequel.

** Molag Bal, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[TheCorrupter Domination and Corruption]], is a major fan of inflicting this. He loves taking good and noble mortals, then seeing them break. For those who prove resistant to his tortures, he has the ability to fragment their souls, essentially a form of MindRape which causes them to lose or forget about that which gives them strength. Molag Bal's plane of Oblivion, [[EldritchLocation Coldharbour]], is designed to torment a person as horribly and efficiently as possible. The ground is sludge, the sky is on fire, and the [[EvilIsDeathlyCold air is freezing]]. It resembles a ruined and desecrated copy of Nirn that is filled with suffering and "spattered" with blood and excrement. It contains charnel houses full of the dead and slave pens beyond count. The very ''[[EvilSmellsBad smell]]'' of the place is enough to break most mortals. It is said that no mortals willingly visit this place except in error.
