* Played for laughs in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. The four are camping atop the mesa, and Paul is [[TheSleepless happily sleeping for the first time in days]]. The next thing he knows, he's on the ground below, arms outstretched in the Jesus pose, in a Paul-shaped hole in the dirt. George comes down to make sure he's okay (he's NighInvulnerable; he's fine). (George [humorously]: “Dreaming you were Jesus, then? Sorry, you're just Superman. John's Jesus” (because [[MakingASplash he can walk on water]].) For his part, Paul can't identify what he might have been dreaming about that would cause him to end up like this, though he knows he was having bad dreams ([[CatapultNightmare which is why he thrashed himself off the side of the mesa]]).

** Not only him, but Juri, the person Beelzebumon was trying to save, after being ''{{Mind Rape}}d'' repeatedly for several days by the D-Reaper because she [[spoiler: saw him kill her partner]], powered (probably as a converter, not a generator) the EldritchAbomination , gets the pleasure of being trapped, crushed and crucified ''twice'' with big power cables while getting (judging by her screaming) {{mind rape}}d further for another week and at the same time desperatly trying to save a friend, who also gets crushed in front of her. Did I mention that the D-Reaper tries to both burn and drown her? And that she comes out of it better that when she entered? Miss {{badass}} Asuka from [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva]] is thrown into a coma after ''five minutes'' of similar, if not lighter treatment, even if her problems have a different source.

* Abe does this completely out of nowhere, with the sun beyond his head like a halo and everything, at the end of the first song in TheMusical episode of ''CloneHigh''. The episode is a parody of rock operas in general, including ''JesusChristSuperstar'', and this foreshadows his later meeting with his celestial [[UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln clone father]].

* In ''BatenKaitos'', [[spoiler: during the arc where you play as Xelha, you are separated from the rest of your party and must go off to save them. Each individual character you rescue is found hanging not on a cross, per se, but a giant "Y".]] One may wonder if the creators were attempting to subvert this trope.
** And in the Japanese version of ''Origins'', after [[spoiler:turning into an afterling and being captured by the Machina Vanguard]] Sagi is attached to a cross. In the American version it was changed to a rectangle, but he's still hanging in a crucified position.

* Used many times in the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', which makes sense considering that Creator/EijiTsuburaya was [[JapaneseChristian a devout Catholic]]. [[MemeticHandGesture The iconic Specium Ray pose]] was even made to look like a Christian Cross!

** ''Series/UltramanAce'' saw Zoffy, Ultraman, Ultraseven, and Ultraman Jack crucified by the wicked Yapool so he can steal their powers to give to his monster Ace Killer. Ace's co-host Yuko Minami would later be crucified by Alien Orion to intimidate TAC.

** In the ''Series/UltramanMebius and the Ultra Brothers'' movie, Ultraman, Ultraseven, Ultraman Jack, and Ultraman Ace are imprisoned in crystal crucfixes by Alien Guts and Nackle to drain their energy to revive an insanely powerful monster. even's original crucifixion wuld later be homage in the series itself when the icy alien Grozam froze Mebius in a cross form for future execution.
