* The Robert E. Howard story, "Literature/AWitchShallBeBorn", had Literature/ConanTheBarbarian crucified on an actual cross by Constantius, the villain's [[TheDragon Dragon]]. He gets better, and at the story, he returns the favor to Constantius, whom he states is far better at inflicting pain than enduring it like Conan can.

* In ''Film/{{Hick}}'' after [[Main/ChloeGraceMoretz Luli]] is [[spoiler: raped[[note]] symbolically, speared? [[/note]] [[DiscretionShot offscreen]] by Eddie the next scene cuts to her tied to a bed in a crucifixion pose, waiting to be raped again]]: metaphorically crucified for the sin of man. She is [[spoiler: tied to the bed]] quite differently in the book, so the change must be a deliberate visual metaphor.

* Used a few times in the ''VideoGame/SakuraWars'' franchise. In the first game Maria is captured and crucified, in the second game every member of the team except the girl you're leading with (who at this point is almost assuredly the one you'll end up with), is captured and put into crystaline crucifixes. It shows up a few other times aside with the next game, with Reni and Orihime hanging from a double sided giant floating cross [[NunsareMikos Erica the novitiate nun]], and more. But then Christian symbolism is really embedded into the Sakura Wars franchise... And used in a way where it seems the creator knows what he's doing.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', some of the people who get caught in [[MadScientist Relius Clover's]] AstralHeat are shown in this position. Examples include Rachel (who ironically is a ''vampire''), Ragna and Noel [[spoiler: (plus Mu-12 and Lambda]] who, for worse, [[ShamefulStrip are nude]]).

* Happens in the second season of ''Anime/SailorMoon''. When Rubeus captures the Inner Seishi, he keeps them partially tucked inside crystal crosses.
** A rather unconventional example occurs in the R movie, in which Fiore kind of crucifies Sailor Moon (who has sacrificed herself to save her friends and the Earth), except he himself acts like the cross and holds her in place with long, tentacle-like tree roots while subjecting her to a mix of ElectricTorture, LifeEnergy stealing ''and'' a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech

** Inverted in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. [[spoiler: This happens twice (once to Emma Frost and again with Sebastian Shaw) and neither of them are heroes.]]
** In ''Film/TheWolverine'', after Wolverine becomes a HumanPincushion, he strikes this pose, mostly because all the tethers attached to the arrows are forcing him into it.

** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': There is a brief moment where the younger Charles Xavier, who is bleeding and LooksLikeJesus, is trapped under beams which form the distinctive shape of an X, almost like a cross.

* ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' had [[spoiler: Chromartie's final shootout take place in a church,]] firing at people on both sides of him. At one point it was also shot to show the cross silhouette clearly. Probably not a coincidence, as the show has been talking a lot about religion in second season.
