* In the VideoGame/FusionFall fic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6334530/1/Haywire Haywire]] [[Ben10UltimateAlien Ben Tennyson's]] evil genetic double Albedo (who hates humanity and is a misogynist to boot) is the only one that can save Ben's life; naturally, he won't cooperate unless they capitulate to his ridiculous demands despite being offered generous payment and ''not'' being turned over to the SpacePolice. To make him compliant, [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Professor Utonium]] gets... ''creative'' by [[spoiler: hosting an insanely cutesy tea party in Albedo's cell with Bubbles, [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Dee Dee]] and [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Sarah]] while the girls play movies of an annoying MyLittlePony {{Expy}} as they shove sugary foods down Albedo's throat and ''paint his fingernails.'']] It's almost too much for Albedo to take, but he resists... until Utonium brings in [[WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor Number]] [[TastesLikeDiabetes Three]]. Dexter even calls it "cruel and unusual punishment" as he compliments his adoptive father on raising the bar for said punishment.
-->'''[[Ben10UltimateAlien Kevin Levin]]:''' Dude, that is ''harsh''.\\

** ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' introduces the religion of Khur'ainism, whose version of {{Hell}} seems to consist mostly of this. Prosecutor Sahdmadhi threatens characters with damnation to "The Hell of Tickling" (where the damned experience TickleTorture for 500 million years, and is considered the worst punishment possible) and "The Hell of Hangnails", (where the damned have hangnails ripped out of their fingers for 800 million years).

-->'''George''': ''(smirking)'' Make us write lines?

* In an early ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'' issue, John Constantine is hung upside-down by demons in front of a TV screen with an election broadcast. The torture element is the fact that Margaret Thatcher wins the election and even having triumphed over demon stock brokers (yes, this is a subtle comic) Constantine still remains suspended, doomed to watch Iron Lady gloat until morning. ''"Like I said, more than one road to Hell."''

* In the ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fanfic ''Gaz Dreams of Genie'', an impulsive offhand comment while making her first wish results in Gaz accidentally [[RetGone making it so Dib was never born]]. As a result, she finds herself as a worker drone slave in an AlternateTimeline where Zim has [[VillainWorld conquered the Earth]]. When she refuses to go along with her new role, she's sentenced to the Chamber of Torment... but since it's full, she instead gets put in the Chamber of Moderate Annoyance, where she's sprayed with itching powder, mustard, and skunk stink, gets pelted by live squirrels, and gets wedgied by a robotic arm. And as the cherry on top, while she's dangling in midair from the wedgie, speakers start playing a recording of [[ItsAllAboutMe Zim's autobiography]].
