* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' was liberally sprinkled with shots of characters bound to crosses, from Seto Kaiba to Yami's Dark Magician.
** Taken UpToEleven in the climax of the Waking the Dragons arc, when Yami/Pharaoh pulls this pose while literally ''absorbing a monster created out of the evil thoughts and emotions of every person on the planet into his own heart in order to stop it from hurting anyone else ever again and to purify his enemy's soul.'' Subtlety? Subtlety is for dorks!

* Syaoran is very temporarily crucified by some cute bunny rabbits in [[http://www.onemanga.com/Tsubasa_Reservoir_Chronicles/50/17/ this panel]] of TsubasaReservoirChronicle in preparation for being eaten/burned at the stake/sacrificed to a demon god. Not surprisingly, they don't go through with it after they learn he can speak.

* TomCruise does this during the climbing scene - i.e. ''the first sequence'' - of ''Film/MissionImpossibleII''. Afterwards the main character Ethan Hunt becomes an unstoppable demigod rather than the secret agent he was in the first movie. It's not surprising the second movie is also the less valued in the series.

It's very common for a character who just performed a HeroicSacrifice to be lying with their arms outstretched like the crucified {{Jesus}}. The "person with outstretched arms symbolically representing Christ" pose is so deeply ingrained into modern culture that anytime we see a character in that pose, [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory we tend to assume the director was going for this trope]], even when it's obvious from the context of the scene that he or she ''wasn't.''
