* Subverted in a ''[[ComicBook/Supergirl972 Bronze Age]]'' ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' issue when the titular heroine tries to save a guy from a conveyor belt and finds the buzz saw is made from plastic. The conveyor belt wasn't supposed to cut the weak-hearted guy in half, it was meant to scare him to death.

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.

-->'''Mr. Wiggin:''' Good morning, gentlemen. This is a twelve-storey block combining classical neo-Georgian features with the efficiency of modern techniques. The tenants arrive in the entrance hall here, and are carried along the corridor on a conveyor belt in extreme comfort and past murals depicting Mediterranean scenes, towards the rotating knives. The last twenty feet of the corridor are heavily soundproofed. The blood pours down these chutes and the mangled flesh slurps into these...\\

* ''[[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.
