Originated as a standard CliffHanger scenario in 19th-century melodramas and the silent matinee film serials that followed them, such as ''The Perils of Pauline'' (and echoed repeatedly on ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop''). Probably a DeadHorseTrope, at least in the dramatic sense. But then, it wasn't too bad in ''Film/EnemyMine''.

** In "Pain Strikes underdog" the conveyor belt is part of a candle-making machine that the villain Riff-Raff is using to disguise stolen swords as candles; in this case, both victims are bound with the wicks and hardened wax, the wick cutter intended to be used like a guillotine. (It even ''looks'' like one.) Unfortunately for Riff-Raff, [[VillainBall wax and normal rope can't hold Underdog for long]]...
** In the episode with the Cloud Men, Underdog's ring has been stolen, he's already nearly powerless because of it, and he and Polly are thrown into onto one that leads to a furnace designed to melt down silver. Fortunately, they're lucky enough to find the stolen ring there.

* ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearGhostBabel Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel]]'' for the GameBoy had a variant on this, except it was the player who got the pain. In what is probably the otherwise great game's ScrappyLevel, legendary badass Solid Snake must infiltrate the enemy base, by going through a color coded box sorting system via conveyor belt. It eventually leads into a showdown with Marionette Owl, part of the QuirkyMinibossSquad.

The conveyor leads to robotic circular saws that cut large hunks of milk chocolate into manageable pieces. E.B. is able to wriggle and dodge around this mechanized DeathTrap so well that his outfit remains intact while his bonds were eliminated.
