* ''Film/TropicThunder'' takes the piss out of the the famous ''Platoon'' scene. The hero of the fictitious UsefulNotes/VietnamWar movie gets shot while maintaining the pose for an absurdly long time. The scene is later echoed when the actor playing the hero [[spoiler: has to run from an angry mob.]]

* PlayedForLaughs in ''ThorRagnarok'', in which the [[{{Egopolis}} tacky giant gold statue]] of the decidedly ''villainous'' Loki is in this pose after his [[FakingTheDead faked]] HeroicSacrifice. (Later, during the climactic battle scene, he [[spoiler:descends from the Grandmaster's stolen spaceship reprising this pose, shouting "Your savior is here!"]], with much [[LargeHam ham]].

** 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.

** He's Irish, isn't he? To Brits, that tends to imply Catholicism- not sure if the director was aware of that.

** The ''Series/DoctorWho''[=/=]''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' team love this. Jack casts his arms wide and screams in agony as the Abaddon (yep, "Hell", or "Death" or "The Devil") drains the life force out of him leaving him apparently dead for days before he gets up and says "''I forgive you''" to the man who betrayed him. He also pulled this pose the first time he died and on several times since, and may just be found of using it. Martha Jones gets strapped to a cross-shaped bed while being medically tortured... it goes on and on and on and on, and unbelievably on.

** Clara Oswald in "Face the Raven" [[spoiler: after the raven enters her body and she begins to die]]. The fact she strikes a similar pose as that of (occasionally) the Doctor on his regeneration may not be coincidental, given her character arc.

* For [[spoiler: someone who's supposedly the Antichrist]], [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Sam Winchester]] sure does get crucified a lot. There were a couple bonuses to some of these, like when he's getting his legs beaten with a baseball bat (a common way to speed up the process in Ancient Rome) and when he gets [[FauxSymbolism stabbed in the side]] by a torturer.

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. [[spoiler: Not to mention scarecrow-like.]]

* Benjamin West's 18th century portrait of the death of General Wolfe (who was killed at the moment of his triumph in the capture of Quebec) makes use of strong "Christ taken down from the cross" imagery, with the Union Flag as the cross. The Union Flag had two different crosses on it, so...
