The requirement to send the photo of her in handcuffs was removed on appeal as serving "no legitimate rehabilitative or corrective purpose," but the rest was upheld (including hand-writing every single one of the 500+ apology letters).

*** ''Grand Theft Auto'' also has a dedicated server for bad sports. What makes them notable is that they also put everyone in said server in a dunce cap.

** ''Marvel vs Capcom 3'' also does something similar. In this game, if you disconnect before your fight is over, then you can avoid having a loss on your record. However, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything the devs thought of that too]], and if your in-fight disconnect numbers got suspicious, you were sent to a special server that was entirely populated with people who did the same thing. [[IronicHell If you try to weasel out of a loss, then they send you to a place where everyone else weasels you out of your wins.]]

* ''Literature/AScannerDarkly'' has Charles Freck's punishment in the afterlife, after his suicide attempt: a creature with a thousand eyes pulls out a ListOfTrangressions, which he will be made to listen to for all eternity. ''In shifts.'' (In the film, this is a BungledSuicide, and he's later seen in rehab; in the book, the suicide attempt is the last time he appears, raising the possibility that this ''is'' his afterlife.)

* During an episode of ''HomeImprovement'', [[DirectionlessDriver Tim gets himself and his wife lost while driving but stubbornly refuses to ask for directions]]. To make Tim change his mind, his wife threatens to get up each morning and cut out the sports section of the newspapers they get if he continues to refuse to stop and ask for directions. It works.

* The whole point of [http://adrireadscomics.tumblr.com/post/32395005646/the-golden-age-part-two-fletcher-hanks-and Stardust The Super Wizard] was to inflict particularly deranged and horrifying punishments on a bunch of AssholeVictims. The results must be seen to be believed.

* The most common punishment for crashing a [[Fanfic/TheInfiniteLoops loop]] is being sent to a 'punishment loop'- a boring and unpleasant setting where the loopers' powers are sealed and they are [[{[Railroading}} railroaded]] onto the canon plot. The best-known punishment loop is Eiken (a bland {{Fanservice}}-[[WorldOfBuxom filled]] wish-fulfillment-but-not-for-you high school), but there are others. Teletubbies has been used as a punishment loop, and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]] has had My Little Pony G3 punishment loops.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' when a [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide batshit crazy]] [[ArtifactOfDoom Alicorn-Amulet-Powered]] Trixie shows up for revenge, she does everything from [[BodyHorror manipulating age to removing Pinkie Pie's mouth]]. Then she puts Rarity in a horrible dress, ''which literally reduces her to tears''.
** Another earlier example in The Last Roundup: When Applejack started working at a cherry farm and won't tell the others why she won't return, they decide to send Pinkie Pie in to ramble on and on about random topics until Applejack finally caves in.
