* 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.

* No fewer than three characters in ''DGrayMan'' have been crucified by the villains, although one might have just been tied up in that position, and one was nailed to a clock. General [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Yeeger]] was crucified as a message to the heroes.

* A well-known sculpture of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matija_Gubec Matija Gubec]], leader of the Croatian-Slovenian peasant revolt of 1573, by Croatian sculptor Antun Augustinčić. Gubec was executed in a particularly cruel manner, including being crowned by a crown of red-hot iron, which makes the resemblence to Jesus Christ's execution even more pronounced (Jesus was crowned with a crown of thorns).

* In the musical ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'', [[spoiler: Fiyero's]] HeroicSacrifice results in him being tied up with his arms outstretched in this pose. The stage lighting casts a shadow on him as he's carried away to be tortured to death, making his silhouette briefly appear very Christ-like.

* A photo of the execution of Yugoslav (Croatian) partisan [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stjepan_Filipovi%C4%87 Stjepan Filipovic]] became one of the iconic photos of World War II in Yugoslavia. It is particularly interesting because it combines a Christ-like pose with the communist "clenched fist" salute.
